    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford could not come through for Detroit on Sunday versus Dallas.
    Insight: He had a chance to lead a game-winning drive, but lost two fumbles on that drive. Stafford threw for 323 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
     
    12/29/2014 10:45:00 AM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford three three touchdown passes, but managed just 217 yards on 41 passing attempts.
    Insight: It's been three weeks since he managed to throw for 300 yards or more. Pretty disappointing for a QB1 with quality recievers like Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.
     
    12/21/2014 5:21:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was quiet yet again in Week 16.
    Insight: He did not find the end zone, and totaled 243 yards and two interceptions. Pretty disappointing for a QB1 in the championship round.
     
    Cold12/15/2014 10:35:00 AM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was very quiet in a 16-14 win over Minnesota.
    Insight: He was 17-of-28 for 153 yards and one touchdown. The Vikings dominated time of possession and Stafford and the offense couldn't get much going. he should be much better in Week 16 against a very giving Bears defense.
     
    12/7/2014 7:05:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had anther solid performance during Week 14.
    Insight: He was 26-of-34 for 311 yards and three touchdowns. Stafford has thrown for 701 yards and five scores over the past two games.
     
    11/27/2014 3:56:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had one of his best games of the season, on Thanksgiving Day.
    Insight: He was 34-of-45 for 390 yards and two scores. Stafford will be a borderline QB1 for the rest of the season.
     
    11/23/2014 6:28:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was dreadful Sunday against the Patriots.
    Insight: He was 18-of-46 for 264 yards, one interception, and no touchdowns. Stafford has not played up to owners' standards this season, and is only a borderline QB1 for now.
     
    Cold11/17/2014 10:04:00 AM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was completely dominated by the Cardinals defense and posted his worst numbers of the season.
    Insight: Stafford went 18-of-30 for just 180 yards and an interception. A quarterback with receivers like Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate should be able to produce better than that.
     
    11/9/2014 5:54:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford passed for 280 yards in Sunday's victory against the Dolphins.
    Insight: He had two touchdowns and one interception, and with Calvin Johnson now healthy, Stafford could see an increase in production.
     
    Hot10/26/2014 12:55:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford struggled in the first half against Atlanta without a lot of his top weapons, but found a way to make it work.
    Insight: The good ones do. Stafford finished the game with 325 yards passing and two scores after being shut out in the first half. The second-half offense featured Golden Tate and Theo Riddick.
     
    10/19/2014 7:07:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford really struggled, throwing two interceptions on Sunday against the Saints.
    Insight: Stafford salvaged the game with two late touchdown throws. He was 27-for-40 with two touchdowns. Stafford was one yard short of the 300-yard bonus as he finished with 299.
     
    10/16/2014 4:24:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford could be down a trio of receiving weapons for Saturday's game with New Orleans.
    Insight: Likely missing will be Calvin Johnson, Joseph Fauria and Eric Ebron. He could get Reggie Bush back which would certainly help, but beware of overvaluing Stafford in Week 7.
     
    10/12/2014 6:10:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was nothing special Sunday against the Vikings.
    Insight: He led his team to a win, but that doesn't help fantasy owners. Stafford threw for 185 yards and a score. Owners still need to consider him a QB1 for now.
     
    9/28/2014 5:28:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford went 24-for-34 with 293 yards and two touchdowns against a tough Jets pass defense in Week 4.
    Insight: The Jets completely blanketed Megatron, but Stafford connected with Golden Tate eight times for 116 yards and to Jeremy Ross and Eric Ebron for touchdowns. Stafford has thrown for more than 290 yards in three of the four games to start 2014.
     
    9/16/2014 10:22:00 AM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford couldn't solve the Carolina defense Sunday, throwing 48 times for 291 yards and one touchdowns.
    Insight: Stafford did more with less in the season opener against the Giants when he threw just 32 passes, but amassed 346 yards and two scores. He was sacked four times and hurried on numerous others, so give credit to the tough Panthers defense. Stafford should get back on track next weekend versus the Packers against whom he has averaged 304 ypg in seven contests.
     
    11/28/2013 4:07:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns with three turnovers (two interceptions, one fumble) Thursday against the Packers.
    Insight: Stafford picked up his first career win against Green Bay and Detroit's first win on Thanksgiving since 2003. The QB has turned the football over seven times over his last two games but he's also thrown for 627 yards and six touchdowns.
     
    Cold11/24/2013 6:51:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (3 TD, 4 INT, 297 yards) struggled in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.
    Insight: His four interceptions Sunday were a season-high. Over his last two games, Stafford has logged a miserable 68.2 quarterback rating on 92 pass attempts. With the Lions now tied with Chicago for first in the division, he'll need to get back on track quickly. Detroit's next game is Thursday against the Packers.
     
    Hot10/27/2013 6:17:00 PM
    Description: Detroit QB Matthew Stafford blew up for a career-high 488 yards Sunday in a 31-30 win over Dallas.
    Insight: He ran for the game-winning score on a brilliant fake with 12 seconds remaining. Stafford is now on pace to throw for 5,234 yards, which would be the third-highest single-season total in NFL history.
     
    Hot10/20/2013 5:35:00 PM
    Description: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford enjoyed the benefits of a healthy Calvin Johnson Sunday and threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns.
    Insight: Two of the scores and 155 yards went to Megatron, who pulled down a jump ball over triple coverage for his second touchdown. Stafford has thrown for seven touchdowns over his last two games and 15 in the first seven. As long as Johnson is active, Stafford should be started in fantasy leagues.
     
    10/13/2013 6:21:00 PM
    Description: Detroit QB Matthew Stafford upped his season touchdown total to 12 with a four-touchdown effort Sunday versus Cleveland.
    Insight: Amazingly, none of the four touchdowns went to his favorite receiver Calvin Johnson. Stafford is now on pace for 32 scores this season, which would be 12 more than he had in 2012.
