Quick fantasy outlook: after being labeled an 'injury risk' after his first two seasons, Matthew Stafford has played in 32 consecutive games. Even more impressive, he has over 10,000 yards passing in that same timeframe, and 61 passing TDS. Last season, he attempted over 725 passes, and even chipped in a career high 128 rushing yards and four rushing TDS. However, by the end of the season, the offense was just trying to force the ball into Calvin Johnson. This year, Stafford still doesn't have a legitimate #2 wide receiver on the opposite side of the field from Megatron. Nate Burleson is entering his 11th season, and the rest of the receivers on the team are under achievers or completely unproven. Stafford should have another year of throwing for more than 4500 yards passing, but unless he can spread the ball around a little more, the result will still be a disappointing season for him and the Lions.
