QB Matthew Stafford
Average Draft Position: 137.3 (among 8 national fantasy websites)
Projected Round: 8-13
Despite an eight-game stretch where he threw for 19 touchdowns and just two interceptions, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finds himself trending downward on most fantasy rankings this season.
It seems many pundits are taking into account the retirement of his favorite target Calvin Johnson, but Stafford has plenty of targets to throw to with the likes of Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, and even pass-catching back Theo Riddick. If you’re looking to wait on drafting a starting quarterback, Stafford could provide some tremendous value depending on where he is drafted.
