Matthew Stafford Fantasy Projection Week 14

The Detroit Lions have struggled in their past two games, losing to Green Bay and New Orleans, and the impact of those struggles can be seen in quarterback Matthew Stafford's fantasy production.

Stafford has thrown just one touchdown past in each of the last two games while throwing four interceptions (3 vs. Green Bay). After the Lions were thrust into catch-up mode by halftime last week against the Saints, Stafford did put up some big passing numbers eventually ending the game completing 31 of 44 passes for 408 yards. But only a short touchdown pass to running back Maurice Morris could enhance that big yardage number.

Stafford will have a friendlier foe for the passing game on Sunday when the Lions take on the Minnesota Vikings, but the numberFire projections remain pretty conservative. According to numberFire, fantasy owners can expect Stafford to complete 20.88 of 33.14 passes for 247.52 yards with 1.88 TDs and 0.96 interceptions.

Somehow, Stafford has to find a way to get receiver Calvin Johnson loose. The big-time playmaker has been held under 100 yards in the past four games with only one touchdown.
