Summary

After some injuries early in his career, Matthew Stafford has become one of the NFL's most consistent and durable franchise quarterbacks. He has played all 16 games in seven straight seasons, topping 4,250 passing yards and 20 touchdowns each year. He is coming off of the most efficient season of career, with a career-high 7.9 yards per attempt and a solid 29-10 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Stafford has completed at least 65% of his passes in each of his three seasons under offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Still just 30-years old and locked into a long-term mega contract, Stafford should be leading the Lions for most of the next decade. While Stafford has had only one huge fantasy season (way back in 2011), he is an extremely safe QB1 choice who has strung together three-straight Top-10 scoring seasons and seven-straight Top-15 seasons. If Kenny Golladay emerges as a legitimate third option alongside Marvin Jones and Golden Tate, Stafford may have the deepest group of receivers in his career. (May 26)
