Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
After battling a tough Vikings defense on turkey day, the Lions travel to New Orleans to play a defense that can be thrown upon. The lack of a running game will once again keep the spotlight on the passing side of things, the prospect of a high scoring affair is very real, making Stafford one of the top options this week.
Passsing: 275 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 12 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
After quite a few fantasy owners understandably had given up on Stafford following his terrible start to 2015, the Detroit triggerman rebounded nicely after the team replaced offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi with Jim Bob Cooter at midseason. Playing in a "Cooterized" attack, the 28-year-old Stafford compiled a sparkling 19:2 TD-to-INT ratio and averaged 272.4 passing yards per contest in the second half to wrap up the season as the fantasy QB8. Cooter returns, but Stafford will play his first ever season without the services of retired stud Calvin Johnson. Losing "Megatron" is obviously huge and will result in lower numbers for Stafford. Free-agent Marvin Jones and Golden Tate will operate as the "1A" and "1B" options in a post-Johnson offense that will remain pass heavy since massive improvement from what was the NFL's worst ground game isn't likely. Jones and Tate are both solid receivers, but neither is an elite playmaker. Receiving back Theo Riddick (80 receptions in 2015) has become one of Stafford's most lethal weapons. The team is also banking on a gigantic third-year leap from the underachieving Eric Ebron, who will have more targets coming his way. Rookie tackle Taylor Decker and rookie center Graham Glasgow should bolster a Detroit offensive line that struggled mightily. Bottom line: don't overvalue Stafford because of his strong finish in 2015 - Johnson is gone.

Passing: 5000 Yards, 43 TD, 15 INT.
Rushing: 80 Yards, 0 TD.
