Matthew Stafford is running the first team offense in the first padded team period today, so another great sign for that thumb.
Great news. The Rams got a scare yesterday when Stafford hit his throwing thumb against a helmet. The indication was Stafford would be OK, but no one would have been surprised if he sat out a day and played it safe. That isn't the case and he's back at it today.
LAR QB Matthew Stafford - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs Lions
Matthew Stafford welcomes the Detroit Lions to Los Angeles, and if we know anything about sports, narratives are more important than facts. On a more serious note, the Lions are 25th in aFPA against opposing offenses and 15th against quarterbacks. Detroit has shockingly allowed one 300-yard passing game but has allowed Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrow, Aaron Rodgers, and a Jimmy G/Trey Lance combination to score 19 or more fantasy points with relative ease. Stafford has potential to be the overall QB1 Week 7.
