Latest News
Matthew Stafford: New offense will be just as aggressive
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford began learning the team's new offense this week. While the scheme likely won't be as pass-heavy and will include more short crossing routes, Stafford said Detroit won't sacrifice its aggressiveness, reports the Detroit News.

“We were a pretty aggressive offense last year,” Stafford said. “And I am sure with some of the guys we have on the outside to make plays and in the backfield, whether it’s throwing the ball 50 yards in the air or throwing it 5 yards and letting guys run with it, we’re always about trying to make big plays.

“We are trying to be smart with the ball, too, but big plays in this league lead to points which inevitably lead to wins."

Matthew Stafford, Golden Tate building chemistry
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and free agent acquisition Golden Tate are using this week's voluntary minicamp to get accustomed to each other.

"Any time we miss a ball, I'm going straight to him, 'Hey, did I look back? Turn my head late? Did that feel right? What can I do better?'" Tate told MLive.com. "I think that's where it starts, just talking it out. I can't read his mind, he can't read my mind, so we're just talking it out."

Tate, the team's No. 2 receiver, said he's adjusting to Stafford's powerful arm. But he also praised Stafford's accuracy.  

"He's placed some balls on air and seven-on-sevens and I'm like, 'Wow, that's a great ball,'" Tate said. "For instance, I run a basic route, which is a 10-, 12-yard in, and he's put it right there, on the dot, where I can split the safeties and potentially score."

Matthew Stafford's accuracy under the microscope
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford ranked 30th last year with a 58.5 percent completion rate. New coach Jim Caldwell is focused on raising that number significantly.

"Every single time you throw, you throw at a target," Caldwell said, per MLive.com. "I'm trying to hit your right ear, I'm trying to hit your left shoulder. Every single time, even when you're warming up. You work on your accuracy just constantly and you look at small targets. That's what gets you accustomed to being able to pinpoint your accuracy."

Caldwell said Stafford can be much more precise."He has the ability to do that," Caldwell said. "But the key is to be able to do it more consistently. That's what we're always striving for."

Lions passing game gets better
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/14) The Lions signed receiver Golden Tate to a five-year, $31 million contract Wednesday with more than $13 million in guaranteed money. I like this move for all the respective Fantasy parties involved.

Start with Tate, who is coming off a career year in 2013 with 64 catches for 898 yards and five touchdowns in Seattle. He has been stifled by the Seahawks run-heavy offense the past two years with Russell Wilson, but all that is about to change.

Matthew Stafford has attempted 630-plus passes the past three seasons, and even with new head coach Jim Caldwell expected to dial it down, he'll still be throwing a lot. And Tate, playing opposite Calvin Johnson, should see single coverage on almost every play.

This should be his first chance for a 1,000-yard season, and he should score at least six touchdowns. I like Tate as a No. 3 receiver in all leagues with a mid-round pick.

As for Stafford, this gives him another playmaker, which is key. Johnson is the best receiver in the NFL, and Reggie Bush and Joique Bell are solid out of the backfield. Joseph Fauria is a sleeper tight end, but Tate adds another dimension to this passing game. 

Put Stafford back on your list as a Top 5 quarterback, and I would draft him as early as Round 4 after the Top 3 come off the board in Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees.

Lions to hand Matthew Stafford $17.5 million on Friday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford received a $27.5 million signing bonus when he agreed to a contract extension last July but agreed to defer $17.5 million of the payment. That balance is due Friday, reports the Detroit Free Press.

The bonus already has been accounted for in the Lions' salary cap.

Stafford ranked third with 4,650 yards last season but his completion percentage (58.5) declined and his interceptions (19) rose for the second straight year, the paper noted.
