Player Profile
Matthew Stafford (DET)
Low Risk (6%)
Player Overview

Stafford turned in the most efficient stretch of his career in 9 games last year under OC Jim Bob Cooter, who returns for 2016. That came against a favorable schedule and with the now-retired Calvin Johnson. Megatron’s retirement is a significant blow to Stafford’s fantasy outlook. But this remains a solid pass-catching unit. Stafford has a shot to crack the top 12 QBs and should at least be a useful spot-start option this season. He’s worth considering in the double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts.
