Season Projections
A steady top-10 fantasy option during six of the previous seven seasons, he cratered to fantasy QB20 in 2018. Even though Stafford attempted only 10 fewer passes than he did in 2017, the Lions triggerman finished just 16th in passing yards (fewest since 2010), 19th in touchdown passes (fewest since 2012), 10th in completions and 11th in attempts. Stafford played through broken bones in his back while throwing to a badly depleted receiver corps with a banged-up Kenny Golladay as the only reliable weapon during the second half of the season. Marvin Jones missed seven contests because of a knee injury, and Golden Tate (Giants), who topped Detroit with at least 90 grabs per season from 2015 through 2017, was traded to the Eagles at midseason. The Lions also didn't find an adequate replacement for Eric Ebron (Colts). The 31-year-old Stafford returns healthy - so do top targets Golladay and Jones - but a huge rebound season from the fantasy option formerly known as "Steady Stafford" is unlikely. Detroit remains dedicated to a ground-and-pound approach under head coach Matt Patricia. The Lions added 33-year-old Danny Amendola, Jesse James and rookie first-rounder T.J. Hockenson to Stafford's receiver corps. Don't expect either veteran to make an impact, and rookie tight ends - even a mega-talented one like Hockenson - are rarely fantasy factors. Stafford, riding a streak of 131 straight starts, has limited upside as a backup and looks like a better NFL quarterback than a fantasy one.

Passing: 3894 Yards, 23 TD, 11 INT.
Rushing: 79 Yards, 0 TD.
