The "Summer of Matthew Stafford" is garnering some positive reviews.

New Lions coach Jim Caldwell said he's been impressed with Stafford's improvement from minicamp to the beginning of training camp.

"He is getting better," Caldwell said, per The Detroit News' Josh Katzenstein. "His command of the offense has been good."

"I was impressed when he came back that first of all he did not miss a beat," Caldwell added. "He's a very, very smart guy. You could tell he's worked at it even during the summer."

One reason Caldwell and offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi were brought in was to help improve Stafford's sometimes wayward mechanics, which were often excused by the last regime. The head coach said his quarterback has displayed positive developments in that area.

Fantasy Impact: 

Stafford comes in ranked 5th among our QBs this year, but he's got an ADP of sixth round. You definitely have some quality options if you want to pass on taking Peyton Manning, Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers early in drafts, and signs point to Stafford being one of them.
