Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-3/232 Birthdate: 2/7/1988 School: Georgia FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS Don’t let the similar passing yardage between 2011 and 2012 for Matthew Stafford fool you, the tales between the two seasons are very different. In 2011 he threw for 41 touchdowns along with 16 interceptions while in 2012 he passed for only 20 touchdowns with 17 interceptions. While both years he passed for an average of 5,000 yards, there is plenty of room for improvement in the young Detroit Lions quarterback. Being blessed with playing alongside Calvin Johnson who is widely considered the best receiver in all of football, Stafford is going to have to figure out how to produce more despite the constant drops that his other receivers and tight ends burdened him with for most of last year. Look at Stafford to produce as a solid QB1 in deeper 2013 leagues with the possibility of playing much better than that status. His upside potential is large enough to where he should be taken in drafts before some of the quarterbacks that are ranked slightly higher than him. (Updated 2/19/13) UPDATES None.
