2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Despite starting the 2019 season playing some of the best football of his career under new coordinator Darrell Bevell, things cratered fast for Stafford and the Lions, as the Detroit captain missed his first games since 2010, and was eventually shelved for the season with broken bones in his back. With the head coach and general manager in the hot seat, and Stafford the focus of trade rumors this off-season, Stafford is clearly at a career crossroads in 2020.

Although nasty back injuries have hampered him the last two years, Stafford was dazzling for the first half of last season. His 25.9 FPts/G would have placed him in the top-3 at the position, and he was on pace for nearly 5,000 yards and 40 touchdowns before going down. Looking comfortable in a new offense that uses the run game to open up shots down the field, Stafford utilized one of the best deep balls in the game to great success. His 8.6 yards-per-attempt was 2nd in the NFL to only Ryan Tannehill (Things I thought I would never read for 500 Alex).

With this unprecedented offseason, offenses with continuity in coaching staff and personnel will have a big advantage, and Stafford and the Lions have both. Golladay is a blossoming stud, Jones and Amendola are the vets, and last years' top-10 pick T.J. Hockensen should be a threat to be respected. Throw in dynamic rookie D'Andre Swift as a receiver out of the backfield and Stafford arguably has the best of playmakers he's ever been surrounded with. If the line can keep up their end of the bargain, this offense can and should score plenty of points. That's a good thing, because a defense that got torched by the pass replaced their All-Pro corner with a rookie.

I can't imagine a world where this offense stays relatively healthy and doesn't score close to 30 points per game. Stafford is going to have to overcome a defense that isn't going to stifle teams for four quarters and has the talent at the skill positions to not have to play superman. As far as QB1 value goes, there won't be many better than Stafford.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Swift, Golladay, Amendola out for the Lions
Matthew Stafford is Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 20, 3:00 pm

Detroit Lions
Lions Friday practice report with game designations: D’Andre Swift, Kenny Golladay & Danny Amendola are OUT. Matthew Stafford is QUESTIONABLE (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions will be rolling out their JV team against the Panthers this week. Expect Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson to handle most of the running back duties while Marvin Jones Marvin Hall and Quintez Cephus will be the top three wideouts. Stafford is expected to start despite his thumb injury but will have depleted weaponry to aid in his fantasy efforts.


Injury Kenny Golladay returns to practice Wednesday
Hip injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 18, 12:48 pm

Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford is at practice, as promised, but doing absolutely nothing. Didn’t even stretch. Has a small black supportive wrap thing on the thumb of his throwing hand. Did not see him attempt even one pass. Also out: Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola Back: Kenny Golladay (Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We'll need to follow Stafford (thumb) progress throughout the week. If he does play, he's likely going to be less than 100 percent. Golladay hasn't played since Week 8 due to a hip injury.


Injury Matthew Stafford good to go
COVID test came back negative this morning
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 8, 8:48 am

Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford's COVID test came back negative this morning and he officially is cleared to start today vs. Minnesota, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Stafford has had multiple negative COVID-19 tests throughout the week. He's missing Kenny Golladay this week but does get a good matchup against a weak Vikings pass defense that's given up 10 passing TDs in their last three games.


Injury Matthew Stafford placed on COVID-19 list
Unclear if he'll be available to play in Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 4, 4:01 pm

Detroit Lions
As of now, my understanding is it’s uncertain whether #Lions QB Matthew Stafford will be able to play Sunday against the #Vikings. If he landed on the list because of high-risk close contact, it’d depend when the contact occurred, since there’s a mandatory five-day isolation. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's possible we could see Chase Daniel as the starting QB for the Lions against the Vikings this week. However, it sounds like Stafford should be able to play if he tests negative and remains asymptomatic.


Injury Kenny Golladay dealing with hamstring injury
Missed individual drills on Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 10, 3:24 pm

Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford's favorite target is dealing with a new hamstring injury three days before the Detroit Lions open the season against the Chicago Bears. Lions coach Matt Patricia said leading receiver Kenny Golladay suffered a hamstring injury in practice Wednesday that landed him on the injury report. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Golladay missed individual drills on Thursday. It sounds like he's going to end up as Questionable for the weekend but we should get a clearer picture after practice tomorrow. Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola and tight end T.J. Hockenson are next up on the priority list for Matthew Stafford.
