Lions' Matthew Stafford: Dissects New Orleans secondary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 30 of 42 passes for 341 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Saints, adding 22 yards across three rushing attempts.

On a day without top receiver Marvin Jones (thigh), Stafford set a season high in pass attempts and topped a 70-percent completion percentage for the fifth time in 2016 en route to one of his most efficient performances of the year. What's more, Stafford continues to appear more elusive on the ground than he has in previous years, logging his eighth game with double-digit rushing yardage and his sixth with a tote of at least 10 yards. Next up is a divisional matchup at home against a Bears defense with only five interceptions to its name (T-28th in the league).

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Ushers Detroit atop division standings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 23 of 40 pass attempts for 232 yards and one touchdown Thursday against the Vikings, also adding 30 yards on four carries.

After logging two games of 300-plus yards in the first three weeks of the season, Stafford has thrown for less than 250 in five of the last eight. While his play can't be faulted from a real-life perspective -- Thursday marked the seventh fourth-quarter comeback Stafford has engineered in the 2016 campaign -- the signal-caller is failing to impress from a fantasy standpoint as of late. However, he's now set to take his modest five-game average of 247 yards and one touchdown into a favorable matchup against the Saints in Week 13.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Leads another fourth-quarter comeback
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 24 of 33 pass attempts for 278 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.

Stafford didn't come alive until the second half, consistently going three-and-out before finding TE Eric Ebron on a broken play for a 61-yard gain with roughly 10 minutes left in regulation. Nonetheless, the Lions quarterback conducted yet another fourth-quarter comeback to keep his team atop the NFC North standings. It's less rosy when viewed from a fantasy perspective, though, as this marks the second time this season Stafford has failed to throw a touchdown pass and the third time in four games he's thrown one or less. Thankfully, he managed to buoy his stat line Sunday with his third-highest passing yardage output of 2016. On deck in Week 12 is a Vikings team that Stafford managed 219 yards and two touchdowns against in Week 9.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Throws first career touchdown in OT
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 23 of 36 passes for 219 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 22-16 overtime victory against the Vikings.

Stafford performed well given the strength of his opponent, not to mention the fact that he was playing on the road. With a minute remaining and the Lions down three, he effortlessly positioned K Matt Prater within scoring range to send his team into overtime. Then, he proceeded to fling his first career overtime touchdown pass thanks to an acrobatic balancing act by Golden Tate. Stafford is now set to enjoy Detroit's Week 10 bye, and he'll find himself in a favorable matchup against the Jaguars coming out of the break.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Interception-free in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 27 of 41 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown Sunday against the Texans.

Stafford seemed happy to have TE Eric Ebron (knee) back in action, as the former first-rounder was Stafford's second-most targeted receiver, as well as the recipient of a 33-yard completion that pushed Stafford past both Kenny Stabler and Terry Bradshaw on the NFL's all-time passing yards list. However, Stafford wasn't able to get much else going Sunday against the league's second-ranked passing defense, often having to check down to receiving-specialist RB Theo Riddick, who ended up leading the Lions in looks. What's more, Stafford has now thrown for one or less touchdowns in four of eight games this season. Notably, he also failed to log a rushing attempt, let alone any rushing yards, for the first time since Week 4 of 2015. Consequently, fantasy owners should expect positive regression in that facet of the signal-caller's game moving forward.
