 It's now four straight weeks we've seen Stafford throw the ball 34 times or less, which is not a great recipe for fantasy success when he doesn't offer anything on the ground. Now on to play the Vikings defense that's allowed just 6.43 yards per attempt on the season? That's the sixth-lowest mark in football. They've allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks despite seeing the sixth-most passing attempts against them. Many will look at the 10 passing touchdowns they've allowed and think it's not a bad matchup, though a lot of that has come in garbage time against Matt Ryan, Derek Carr, and Carson Wentz. This should be a well fought game throughout as it's a divisional matchup against two teams familiar with each other. In two games against the Vikings last year, Stafford totaled just 315 yards and no touchdowns… in the two games combined. Stafford is just a mid-to-low-end QB2 this week.
