Lions QB Matthew Stafford dealing with normal bumps and bruises
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford received treatment on his throwing arm and was seen limping after Sunday's game against the Jets. However, coach Jim Caldwell said Monday those injuries were nothing out of the ordinary, according to The Detroit News.

"He's OK," Caldwell said of the quarterback. "The game is a physical game, a lot of contact and, as you well know, collisions out there. So guys are going to sometimes come out of those games pretty sore from time to time. I doubt that there's anybody in this building that has played 65 plays like he played that doesn't come out of there with some issues."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Good test for Matthew Stafford in Week 4
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

So ... who's excited about starting Matthew Stafford this week?

Can't get all the way there, can you? He's been Fantasy Football's greatest enigma since his 5,000-yard, 40-touchdown season in 2011. Even this year, he started off with a bang before a couple of lackluster performances back-to-back.

Of course, those were against the Panthers and the Packers, who have fared well against the pass this season, regardless of the opponent, which is what makes his matchup Week 4 at the Jets so interesting.

These ain't your daddy's Jets. Darrelle Revis is long gone, and their secondary no longer dominates the way it used to. In terms of yardage, they rank ninth against the pass, but they've allowed seven touchdowns through the air without recording a single interception. They've also surrendered the fourth-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. The Packers' Aaron Rodgers had his one good game against them in Week 2, throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

Yardage hasn't been the problem for Stafford this season. Touchdowns have. If he can't manage a couple in this game, then maybe you shouldn't be just lukewarm on starting him, but shy away from it altogether.

Matthew Stafford held without a score Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was held without a score Week 3 against the Packers.

Stafford completed 22 of 34 passes for 246 yards. He was held without a touchdown, but threw two interceptions. Stafford also had six rushes for 8 yards during the contest. The Packers DST turned in a pretty solid game. While Calvin Johnson still had a fair amount of yardage, they were able to take away the big play. Stafford also lost a fumble during the game.

Stafford will look for more Week 4 against the Jets.
