Lions QB Matthew Stafford feasts in Turkey Day games

Justin Rogers of Detroit News tweeted out Stafford's Turkey Day stats from his past five Thanksgiving Day performances:

"59.8 completion percentage, 1,730 yards, 13 touchdowns and two interceptions with a 98.7 passer rating."

Fantasy Impact: 

If we average out Stafford's Thanksgiving Day numbers, they work out to 346 passing yards, 2.6 touchdowns, and 0.4 interceptions. For fantasy purposes, that's an average of 23.44 standard fantasy points.

It's a somewhat difficult matchup for Stafford against the Vikings this week, according to our aFPA metric. We currently have him ranked as our No. 14 QB for the week, but if his Thanksgiving Day history repeats, he should be in for a decent fantasy outing.
