Summary

Stafford had started 136 straight games for the Lions before a back injury knocked him out for the final eight games of the 2019 season. Prior to the injury, Stafford was quietly having a monster fantasy season. He was on pace for 4,998 passing yards and 38 touchdowns at the midway point of the season. Had he kept up his torrid pace, he would have had his best fantasy finish since 2011. In fact, from an efficiency standpoint, Stafford had his best NFL season by a good margin. His adjusted yards per attempt (9.1) was easily the best of his career and his QB rating hit triple digits (106) for the first time in his career. Stafford is said to be fully recovered from his back injury and will be a full participant in whatever offseason activities end up taking place. If he can stay healthy, Stafford could be one of the top bargains at the quarterback position in 2020 fantasy drafts. (May 2)
