These Player Spotlight articles that will take a look at the player’s stats, their future match ups, consistency and current rank in position. Hit the jump to check out Matthew Stafford.
Matthew Stafford has been on top of his game this year throwing for the second most yards and tied for the 4th most TDs. If this guy can finally stay healthy through an entire season the Lions actually have a chance to make a decent run into the playoffs. Stafford calls the NFC North his home and he probably couldn’t ask for a better division to be in. All the defenses, including Detroit’s, are quite bad. But with the help of Reggie Bush being added this year, Stafford can take the Lions to the next level.
Week 8 Rank: 3rd
Week 8 Stats: 211/338, 2617 yards, 16 TDs and 6 INTs
