Matthew Stafford burns you for the last time

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/14) When Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford disappointed with just 153 passing yards and one touchdown Week 15 against Minnesota, I was willing to make excuses for him. "The Vikings pass defense really isn't so bad," I said while penciling in Stafford for another 390 yards and two touchdowns Week 16 at Chicago. That's what he did against the Bears in Week 13, after all, and they entered Week 16 ranked 31st against the pass.

So of course, Stafford throws for 243 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions.

The performance could have been so, so, so much better. He threw one of those interceptions in the end zone and another just short of the end zone. But the fact is he completed those passes to Bears and not Lions, and so it was an awful performance despite a favorable matchup.

Stafford has been one of the most up-and-down quarterbacks in Fantasy this season, but the one thing he appeared to have going for him was that he played to the matchups. Remove predictability from the equation, and he's as frustratingly inconsistent as Cam Newton.

How can you trust him Week 17 at Green Bay? He threw two interceptions with no touchdown passes in his previous meeting with the Packers this year, so if you have a Mark Sanchez or even Newton type on the waiver wire, you might want to go that route instead.

Lions QB Stafford merely mediocre in defeat of Bears

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/21/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was held without a touchdown pass for the fourth time this season Sunday at Chicago, but the result was still another victory for his playoff-bound team.

Stafford finished 22 of 39 for 243 yards and his first two-interception performance since Oct. 19. The first pick was off a disastrous decision in the red zone and the second killed a promising opportunity as well.

He will try to play better in the regular season finale next Sunday at Green Bay.

Lions passing game goes missing again

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/14) Though the Vikings hadn't been so great against the pass recently, allowing an average of 246.8 passing yards to the last four quarterbacks they faced, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made sure their No. 6 ranking against the pass this year held up Week 15 in Detroit, failing to reach even the 185 yards he had against them back in Week 6. He finished with a season-low 153 yards on 17-of-28 passing, throwing for just one touchdown.

This after back-to-back games with 300-plus passing yards in which he threw for a combined five touchdowns. Not even the great Calvin Johnson, who was absent for the previous meeting with the Vikings, could redeem Stafford in this one. He had 53 yards after averaging 152.0 yards the previous two weeks.

Of course, the Lions faced the Bears and Buccaneers in those two weeks, or the league's 24th- and 30th-ranked pass defenses heading into Week 15. The Vikings are certainly better than them. Still, for as few yards as they had allowed through the air, the touchdown-to-interception ratio against them was nothing foreboding. It didn't seem like an unfavorable matchup.

But with Stafford, if the numbers say it's an unfavorable matchup, it's an unfavorable matchup. He's been the most predictable quarterback in Fantasy this season; we just keep making it harder than it needs to be. The good news is that in Week 16 he'll be facing those same Bears that he torched in Week 13, so you'll want to keep him active if you're still alive in Fantasy.

Lions' Matthew Stafford tosses one score Week 15

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford tossed one touchdown Week 15 against the Vikings.

Stafford completed 17 of 28 passes for 153 yards and a score during the contest. For the most part, Stafford had no issues with the Minnesota pass rush. He did not take any sacks or turn the ball over during the game. The Vikings defense did give him some problems, particularly with the big-play. Stafford averaged just 5.5 yards per completion, with his longest catch going for 23 yards. He had one rushing attempt, picking up 2 yards.

Stafford will look for more Week 16 against the Bears.

Matthew Stafford looks like a changed quarterback

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/14) For the second straight week, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford took advantage of a favorable matchup, following up 390-yard performance Week 13 against Chicago with a three-touchdown performance Week 14 against Tampa Bay. It was his first game with three passing touchdowns all season and just his fourth with more than 300 passing yards. He finished with 311.

Some will credit the return of star wide receiver Calvin Johnson from an ankle injury for Stafford's turnaround, and certainly, that's played a part. He was responsible for 158 of Stafford's yards in Week 14 and 146 in Week 13. But he returned in Week 10. Stafford was only productive in one of his first three games back.

At least just as responsible for the turnaround is the matchups. Stafford faced the Cardinals and Patriots in Weeks 11 and 12, two teams with some star power in their secondaries, and they were two of his worst games of the season. The Bears and Buccaneers have allowed bunches of touchdowns through the air this season, and Stafford, with help from Johnson, has added to those numbers.

Of course, whether Johnson or the matchups are more responsible is mostly irrelevant. Johnson isn't going anywhere, and Stafford has two more favorable matchups against the Vikings and Bears the next two weeks. He's finally the quarterback you drafted him to be, so keep him active.
