Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs GB (14 / 26 / 183 / 2 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Matthew Stafford had a low volume game against Green Bay largely the result of an early lead set up by Green Bay turnovers. Stafford had two touchdown passes, a post to Kenny Golladay and a back of the end zone throw to Marvin Jones. Stafford could have had a bigger day, with Marvin Jones dropping a long touchdown and Kenny Golladay getting tackled inside the five on a long reception. Detroit benefits from LeGarrette Blount's red zone ability, but it put a cap on Stafford's red zone attempts. Stafford was only sacked three times and showed the ability to get out of the pocket and create when plays broke down.

2018 Week 4 vs DAL (24 / 30 / 307 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)

Matthew Stafford had a good game against the Dallas Cowboys. Stafford threw for two touchdowns and 307 yards on only 30 attempts. While the number may look like he was successful down the field, it was big run after catches by Golden Tate for two long touchdowns that accounted for the high yards per attempt. Stafford was better than earlier in the season and was largely efficient outside of a couple missed throws. He also showed good ability to escape pressure throughout the game. Stafford has a strong arsenal of weapons and when kept upright this type of game is a floor for his production.

2018 Week 3 vs NE (27 / 36 / 262 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)

Matthew Stafford was well protected against a New England defense that struggled to generate a pass rush. Stafford was more accurate, throwing with better touch than in recent weeks. Stafford's first touchdown was a well thrown side arm pass to Kenny Golladay at the goal line. His second was a deep over route to Marvin Jones that was likely a blown coverage. Stafford showed the ability to escape and throw when under pressure and was only sacked once. Stafford could have had a bigger day but overthrew Marvin Jones on a post in the end zone. Stafford's interception was a bad throw off his back foot on third down on a crossing route to Luke Willson.

2018 Week 2 vs SF (34 / 53 / 347 / 3 / 0 pass, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)

In a game that looked good on the stat sheet, Matthew Stafford had the opportunity for a historic performance but missed several throws he ordinarily makes. Stafford missed three deep throws to Marvin Jones and a fourth to Kenny Golladay that were opportunities for 50+ yard touchdown passes. Stafford was equally erratic in the underneath, missing short throws to Theo Riddick and Golden Tate multiple times. Stafford had an opportunity for a red zone touchdown pass but overthrew Marvin Jones on a post. Stafford also had a bad lost fumble on a roll out play. Stafford's day was strong from a fantasy perspective, throwing touchdown passes in the red zone to Michael Roberts and Marvin Jones. Stafford's other touchdown was a play action pass to Golladay that Golladay made a great effort along the sideline to get into the end zone. Stafford was inaccurate in week three of the preseason and that has spilled over to the first two games of the season. If he can get his accuracy on track, the Detroit offense has juggernaut potential.

2018 Week 1 vs NYJ (27 / 46 / 286 / 1 / 4 pass, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)

Matthew Stafford had a terrible start to the season. He was inaccurate and made bad reads, which led to four interceptions. Stafford appeared injured twice. First, Stafford looked like he sustained a knee injury where his left tackle looked to clip his knee. Stafford hobbled for a few plays, but was able to remain in the game, and maintained his movement ability. The second injury was where he got hit while he was throwing by two defenders. He remained on the ground for a period but was able to return on the next series. The injury looked more like he had the wind knocked out of him than a risk for a head injury. Stafford was inaccurate and looked to be rusty after similar struggles in the third preseason game. Stafford could have saved his fantasy day in garbage time, but the team stalled out in the red zone including a T.J. Jones drop in the red zone. Several Jets defenders commented after the game Stafford was tipping his plays based off their knowledge of his hand signals and calls at the line, a trend that will likely require an adjustment.
