Fantasy Analysis
Week 15 Projections
Stafford should not be on fantasy rosters at this point. Depending on what the Lions do in the offense and when they come back healthy, Stafford should be a bounce back QB in 2019. However, there are too many negative factors for him this week and we didn't even mention the game is on the road in Buffalo.
Passsing: 172 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 5 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Good ol' "Steady Stafford." Despite attempting his lowest number of passes since 2010, Stafford closed out 2017 as the sixth-best fantasy quarterback. It was his sixth top-10 finish in the last seven years. The underrated Detroit Lions triggerman actually ranked fourth in the league in attempts (fifth straight top-nine total), third in completions, third in passing yards and fourth in touchdown passes. Even though Stafford owns some plus athleticism, he hasn't made much fantasy noise as a runner in recent years. Stafford's rock-solid supporting cast returns virtually intact with Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and passing-down back Theo Riddick leading the way. Size-speed specimen Kenny Golladay, the team's third wideout, looks primed to make a bigger impact during his sophomore campaign. The only change of note was the exit of third-leading receiver Eric Ebron (Colts) and the addition of Luke Willson. There is one red flag with Stafford: If the LeGarrette Blount/rookie Kerryon Johnson tandem can benefit from an underrated offensive line and convert the Lions' league-worst rushing attack into a reasonably productive one, especially in the red zone, a little less passing from Stafford is very likely. Blount and Johnson are capable finishers, so Stafford's scoring production could take a small it. While the 30-year-old Stafford isn't the sexiest quarterback in the fantasy universe, he's durable - 115 consecutive starts, including the playoffs - and a reliable starter with a safe fantasy floor that will be reasonably priced on draft day.

Passing: 556 Yards, 4 TD, 3 INT.
Rushing: 14 Yards, 0 TD.
