2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Considered an injury risk heading into his third year in the league in 2011, Stafford proved his doubters wrong by putting together a Pro Bowl quality season (although he miraculously wasn’t named to the Pro Bowl) by throwing for 5,038 yards and 41 touchdowns. With the Lions struggling to run the ball, Stafford led a high flying passing attack that threw the ball 663 times and attempted more passing plays than any team in the league. Perhaps most impressively, Stafford was able to produce in the clutch, leading the Lions to big comeback wins over the Cowboys, the Vikings and the Raiders in helping Detroit secure their first playoff spot in more than a decade. If you were looking for consistency, Stafford provided that too by registering fewer than 19 fantasy points just once. That’s what happens when you throw for multiple touchdowns 12 times, have eight 300-yard passing games and fail to throw for 250 yards just four times. What’s in store for 2012? Provided Stafford remains healthy, and it is worth noting that four shoulder injuries caused him to miss 19 of his first 32 games in the league, he should finish the season as a top five fantasy quarterback. With Calvin Johnson in the fold and Titus Young expected to build on his impressive rookie season, Stafford has explosive weapons at wide receiver as well as a solid tight end in Brandon Pettigrew, not to mention perhaps a shiny new toy in 2nd round pick Ryan Broyles. While Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady need to be the first quarterbacks off the board, you could make a strong argument that Stafford needs to go number three.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Calvin Johnson not likely to play in Week 7     -- Fri Oct 17 1:30 pm --

TE Eric Ebron also not expected to play
Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell indicated today that Johnson likely will miss his second straight game because of the right ankle injury he suffered in a loss to the Buffalo Bills earlier this month. Asked whether he expected Johnson to play Sunday, Caldwell said, "I've been surprised before because he's an unusual guy and, just talking to him at practice, he's feeling good and coming along. Miracles have happened." (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: In addition to Johnson, tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) is expected to sit as well. Golden Tate will once again be Matthew Stafford's top target in the passing game. RB Reggie Bush is expected to return this week.
Injury Lions' Eric Ebron, Reggie Bush limited in practice     -- Wed Oct 15 4:39 pm --

Theo Riddick re-aggravates hamstring strain
The Detroit Lions had six skill position players sidelined or limited for Wednesday's practice, including rookie tight end Eric Ebron. Ebron is a new addition to the practice report, missing a portion of the session with a hamstring injury. Also limited was running back Reggie Bush, who was returning to the practice field after missing all of last week with a twisted ankle. All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) remained sidelined and were joined by wide receiver Jeremy Ross (ankle) and running back Theo Riddick, who re-aggravated a hamstring strain against the Vikings.

FF Today's Take: The injuries to Detroit's offense have sapped the fantasy value of Matthew Stafford and the passing game. If Reggie Bush is feeling good after a week of practice he and Joique Bell will be counted on to shoulder the load against a Saints team that ranks 16th in the NFL against the run with 112 rushing yards allowed per game.
Lions pleased with Stafford's progress     -- Mon Jul 28 5:15 pm --

QB showed improvement in "every facet"
HC Jim Caldwell had the quarterbacks report last week, so they could be ahead of the learning curve with the new offense. At that time, he told QB Matthew Stafford he was impressed with his understanding of the new offense considering all the new verbiage and increased pace. “I was impressed when he came back that first of all he did not miss a beat,” Caldwell said. “He’s a very, very smart guy. In every facet when he came back, I could see improvement — footwork, accuracy, timing, command of the offense, all of those things.” (Detroit News)

FF Today's Take: Stafford may already have one 40-touchdown season under his belt, but it is possible he is primed for a career year in 2014 or 2015 with the additions of WR Golden Tate and rookie TE Eric Ebron. The Lions even possess three very capable receivers out of the backfield in RBs Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick. With better fundamentals, owners should not hesitate making Stafford one of the top five quarterbacks selected in fantasy drafts.
