Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Over the past few seasons fantasy players could arguably characterize Stafford as a boring player to own. Ever since his breakout 2011 campaign of more than 5000 passing yards and 41 touchdowns, it's been difficult not to think of subsequent seasons as anything but a little disappointing. But that's hardly been the case, as Stafford's improvement in recent seasons makes him one of the safest quarterback options available heading into his age 30 season. His steadily improving completion percentage has been north of 65% for three straight seasons now, and he's averaged just over 4300 yards and 28 touchdowns over those campaigns while remaining remarkably consistent. There's probably not a big 2011-type upside left in Stafford, but he's managed a career low 10 interceptions in back to back seasons in 2016 and 2017, and at the same time has been trending up to a career high yards per attempt of 7.8 last year. There's a lot to like here.

2018 Season Outlook

Stafford is a solid bet to continue top ten fantasy quarterback production, as the Lions haven't made any significant changes or improvements on the offensive side of the ball. Luke Willson replaces inconsistent tight end Eric Ebron, who was let go in the offseason, and the Lions have once again looked to add some thump to the running game with LeGarrette Blount and Kerryon Johnson. But this is still Stafford's team and it would be surprising to see him not top 4000 yards with mid-20s touchdowns once again this season.
