Matthew Stafford comes alive late in Week 7 victory

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) Playing without wideout Calvin Johnson, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford struggled mightily for most of Sunday's game against the Saints. Stafford turned things around with just under four minutes left when he hit receiver Golden Tate, who broke a tackle and outraced two defenders for a 73-yard touchdown.

Stafford capped the 24-23 comeback win with a 5-yard scoring toss to wideout Corey Fuller with 1:48 remaining. Stafford finished 27 of 40 for 299 yards and the two touchdowns with two interceptions. Stafford made a horrible decision on one pick, but the other was a good throw that deflected off tight end Jordan Thompson's hands.

Stafford plays the Falcons in London in Week 8.

Matthew Stafford becoming a pain in the buns

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/14) You drafted Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford expecting huge numbers, right?

Well, guess what? He's only the No. 12 quarterback in standard CBSSports.com leagues. Russell Wilson is one of the 11 ahead of him, and he has had his bye already.

The lack of touchdowns is most concerning for Stafford. He has had pretty good yardage so far, with Week 6 being the exception, but in four of his six games he has thrown for fewer than two scores. That's a surefire way to lose in Fantasy with all the pass-happy offenses in the league today.

Certainly, the loss of Calvin Johnson hasn't helped, but Stafford wasn't exactly lighting it up with his star wide receiver. And the latest reports have Johnson potentially sitting out until Week 10, so waiting around for him isn't the answer. The good news is the Lions face two of the league's worst pass defenses, New Orleans and Atlanta, over the next two weeks, so you can at least justify starting Stafford if you have to.

But the consistency just isn't going to be there for him. I'd be looking to add Joe Flacco or swing a deal for Cam Newton or Tony Romo if I owned Stafford.

Lions' Matthew Stafford tosses one Week 6

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford managed to toss one touchdown Week 6 against the Vikings.

Stafford finished 19 of 33, for 185 yards and a score. Stafford did not turn the ball over during the contest. Without Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, Stafford was limited to dump-offs. He averaged just 5.6 yards per completion. Theo Riddick seemed to be Stafford's favorite target early. Riddick had a 41 yard reception on the team's first drive, and capped it off with a 9 yard receiving score from Stafford. He was constantly under pressure during the start, and was sacked four times. Stafford also picked up 1 rushing yard on one attempt.

Stafford will take on the Saints Week 7.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford holding onto the football a little too long

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/14) After being sacked 22 times in 2013, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been sacked 17 times through the first five games in 2014. Stafford and coach Jim Caldwell have said the offensive line needs to do a better job protecting the quarterback, but it seems Stafford deserves some of the blame as well, according to MLive.com.

Stafford is holding onto the football longer this season than last. Stafford is waiting at least 2.6 seconds to throw the ball on 47.1 percent of his dropbacks, which is up 9.1 percent from last year, according to ProFootballFocus. He's taken 16 of his 17 sacks when he's held the football at least 2.6 seconds.

"You get sacked as many times as I got sacked, you can find ways to get the ball out quicker," Stafford said. "Find open guys and just make sure I'm taking as few hits as I possibly can. And that's something I'll continue to work on."

Caldwell said Stafford has been slow on some of his reads, but also added some plays are slow-developing by design in coordinator Joe Lombardi's scheme.

"There may be a few more of play-action passes that require holding the ball a little bit longer, to make certain that we get the proper depth of the route for the timing," Caldwell said. "Some of those things are there and in place. But it's a variety of things, I think, so we're crossing the entire gamut in that regard."

Matthew Stafford a risk worth taking vs. Vikings

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/14) The expected absence of Calvin Johnson makes Matthew Stafford a somewhat risky play in Week 6, but he is facing a pretty good matchup as the Lions get set to take on the Vikings.

Stafford has been predictably unreliable with Johnson limited over the last two games, scoring 29 points In Week 4 and then following that up with a 12-point showing in Week 5. The main difference in the two games was the opponent, as the Bills feature a tougher defense than the Jets, his last two opponents. The good news is, the Vikings aren't a particularly tough passing defense, having allowed 71 combined Fantasy points over the last three games.

Stafford is going to be tough to rely on as long as he is playing without the game's best receiver, but Golden Tate is still around as a pretty solid first option if he needs to be. Stafford certainly is not a must-start quarterback, as he has shown recently, but he is good enough o play against this matchup.
