Matthew Stafford Expected To Attend Minicamp

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is still seeking more guaranteed money in the final two years of his current deal, but despite that, he is expected to attend mandatory minicamp next week. Stafford has also been in attendance for voluntary workouts all offseason. He is signed through the 2026 season but only has $15 million guaranteed in the final two years of his deal and none beyond 2024. The 36-year-old veteran played in just nine games in 2022 due to injury but apparently wants to continue playing for at least the next three years. The former first overall pick by the Detroit Lions in 2009 out of Georgia played in 15 regular-season games last year and threw for 3,965 yards, 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions to finish as the QB15 in fantasy. Stafford has plenty to work with in the passing attack with Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua, but he's going to need to be very efficient and stay healthy to be in play as even a low-end QB1.

Matthew Stafford Present At Organized Team Activities

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is present at OTAs. The veteran signal-caller wants more money, so there were rumblings he wouldn't attend. He finished last season by throwing for 3,965 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions while completing 62.6% of his passes. Stafford is due to make $31 million guaranteed this year. However, he is only guaranteed $10 million for the remaining two seasons after the 2024-25 campaign. At any rate, Stafford is predicted to be a semi-reliable fantasy option for at least a few more seasons. But his fantasy stock will fall if he doesn't report to training camp if a new deal isn't reached.

Matthew Stafford Seeking Reworked Contract

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is seeking a reworked deal that includes more guaranteed money, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapaport. The 36-year-old has three years left on his current deal, though the Rams have a potential out following the 2025 season. The four-year contract that he signed ahead of the 2022 season included $130 million in total guarantees. The Super Bowl-winning QB has been present at voluntary workouts this offseason and a holdout does not appear to be imminent, but this is a situation worth monitoring. After posting nearly 4,000 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions en route to a playoff berth in 2023, Stafford believes he has plenty left in the tank.

Matthew Stafford Falls Short In Detroit Return

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford could not come out on top in the team's wildcard loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Stafford completed 25 of his 36 pass attempts for 367 yards and two touchdowns. Despite him shredding Detroit's defense, the Rams could not come out on top. Stafford ended the year on a strong note and surprised many people with his performance this season. Heading into next season, the veteran QB should be considered as a low-end QB1 and will be a solid option late in fantasy drafts.

Matthew Stafford Fully Healthy, Not Considering Retirement

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was able to undergo a full rehab and throwing routine last offseason, continues to feel healthy and throw the ball well. The veteran signal-caller "has no plans to retire," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He completed 62.2 percent of his passes this past season, reaping the rewards of a receiving corps led by Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua. He finished the year with 3,965 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions while ranking as the overall QB15 in fantasy football.

Jan 14, 2024 2:32 PM EST



Matthew Stafford Returns To Detroit

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford will be facing his former team in Sunday's wildcard matchup against the Detroit Lions. Stafford ended the regular season with a dominant six-week stretch where he averaged 284 passing yards and 2.5 touchdowns per game. Through the regular season, Detroit allowed the fifth-most fantasy points and third-most passing yards to opposing QBs. The Rams offense has been rolling since the return of running back Kyren Williams and they will look to keep it going. Stafford should absolutely be considered in all DFS lineups and bets for Sunday's game.

Matthew Stafford Throws Two Interceptions In Win

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford came back down to earth in the team's Week 17 win against the New York Giants. Stafford completed 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 317 yards and one touchdown, as well as two interceptions. He also rushed the ball once for a loss of a yard. Entering this game, the veteran QB put together a four-game stretch where he totaled 1159 passing yards and 10 touchdowns through the air while throwing no interceptions. Consider him as a risky low-end QB1 in a tough Week 18 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

Dec 31, 2023 7:12 PM EST


Matthew Stafford A Solid QB1 Option In Week 17

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has dominated over the last five weeks. Stafford is averaging 277 yards and just under three touchdown passes per game during that span. Despite a relatively slow fantasy start to the season, the veteran has picked it up and become a weekly top-10 option at the position. He now faces a New York Giants defense that has allowed just 19 touchdown passes in 15 games. Despite a possible negative game script and the Rams potentially being run-heavy against the Giants, Stafford should be considered a QB1 with his recent elite efficiency.

Dec 31, 2023 2:30 AM EST


Matthew Stafford Posts Strong Outing

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford came ready to play during Thursday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The veteran signal-caller looked lackluster in the first half of the season, but has turned it around over the last few weeks. On Thursday, Stafford completed 24-of-34 passing attempts for 328 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the win. Stafford nearly had more than a pair of scores, but couldn't connect with his receivers on some red zone trips. Regardless, it was a strong outing for Stafford as the Rams improve to 5-1 in their last six games. Stafford will have a plus matchup versus the New York Giants next week.

Dec 22, 2023 9:19 AM EST


Matthew Stafford Remains Appealing Option In Week 16

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has emerged as an intriguing fantasy football option and remains worth starting against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football in Week 16. The veteran signal-caller has impressed over his last four weeks, averaging 24 completions, 265 yards, and three passing touchdowns per game. He also has just one interception over that span, showcasing his strong poise and accuracy. Despite a matchup against New Orleans' respectable defense, Stafford, armed with elite weapons in the passing game, ranks as a fringe fantasy QB1.

Dec 20, 2023 9:55 PM EST


Matthew Stafford Keeps It Rolling In Week 15

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford continued to play at an elite level in the team's 28-20 win against the Washington Commanders in Week 15. Stafford completed 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 258 yards through the air and two touchdown passes. He also rushed the ball once for two yards. The 35-year-old has now thrown 12 touchdowns and just one interception over the last four games, while the team has won four out of the last five. With the offense at full strength, Stafford should be considered a weekly QB1. Play him as such in his Thursday night Week 16 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

Dec 17, 2023 9:42 PM EST


Matthew Stafford A Mid-Range QB1 In Week 15

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off an incredible three-game stretch. Stafford has thrown 10 touchdowns and just one interception over that span, scoring the second-most fantasy points since Week 12 behind only Dak Prescott. Stafford went through a tough stretch where he offered an extremely low-ceiling earlier in the season. With the offense now healthier, the veteran QB has shown that he is still worthy of being an every-week fantasy starter. He faces a Washington Commanders defense in Week 15 that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing QBs. Treat Stafford as a Mid-Range to High-End QB1 this week.

Dec 17, 2023 2:59 AM EST


Matthew Stafford Continues To Dominate

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford produced against an elite defense once again in the team's Week 14 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The veteran QB completed 23 of his 41 pass attempts for 294 yards and three touchdowns through the air. He also rushed the ball once for a loss of a yard. Considering that Baltimore has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, Stafford exceeded all expectations. The team has been rolling offensively since the return of running back Kyren Williams. Consider Stafford as a mid-range QB1 in a soft Week 15 matchup against the Washington Commanders.

Dec 10, 2023 5:45 PM EST


Matthew Stafford A Risky Play In Tough Week 14 Matchup

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off his best two games of the entire season. The 35-year-old has thrown for 508 yards, seven touchdowns, and has just one interception in the team's back-to-back blowout victories. He now has another difficult matchup at hand, as the team travels to Baltimore to face the Ravens in Week 14. Baltimore has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs this season and has proven itself as a top-three defense in the league. Consider Stafford as a very low-end QB1 and only playable if absolutely needed.

Dec 10, 2023 2:48 AM EST


Matthew Stafford Dominates Despite Tough Matchup

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford produced once again in the team's 36-19 win against the Cleveland Browns. Stafford completed 22 of his 37 pass attempts for 279 yards and three passing touchdowns. He also had one carry for a loss of two yards. The veteran QB did not have a tough time on Sunday, despite facing the number one pass defense in the entire league. Stafford now has his best two games of the season in the last two weeks, totaling 508 passing yards, seven touchdowns, and just one interception. Consider Stafford as a low-end QB1 in another tough matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14.

Matthew Stafford A Risky Play In Tough Matchup

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off his most productive game of the season. Stafford threw for four touchdowns in the team's blowout victory against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. However, he now faces a dominant Cleveland Browns defense that has been number one against the pass this season. Led by Defensive Player of the Year candidate Myles Garrett, Cleveland has been a nightmare for opposing offenses through 12 weeks. Despite the team getting Kyren Williams back and being at full strength, Stafford should be treated as a high-end QB2 with an extremely low floor in Week 13.

Dec 3, 2023 2:45 AM EST


Matthew Stafford Throws Four Touchdowns In Win

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford had his most productive game of the season in the team's Week 12 win against the Arizona Cardinals. Stafford completed 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 229 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed the ball once for two yards. The veteran QB has offered an extremely low ceiling for the entirety of this season but put an end to that here. With the addition of running back Kyren Williams in the offense again, they looked to flow much better. Cautiously play Stafford as a low-end QB1 in a difficult Week 13 matchup with the Cleveland Browns.

Nov 26, 2023 7:59 PM EST


Matthew Stafford Continues To Offer Low Weekly-Ceiling

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is the overall QB22 through the first 11 weeks of the season. Stafford has thrown for more than one touchdown pass just once in the nine games he has played this year, while he has not thrown for over 250 yards in a game since Week 4. The return of All-Pro wide receiver Cooper Kupp has not boosted Stafford's fantasy value and it is clear that they do not offer the ceiling they have in the past. Consider Stafford a very low-end QB1 in the team's Week 12 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

Nov 26, 2023 3:43 AM EST


Matthew Stafford Has Mediocre Performance In Win

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford did just enough for the team to defeat the Seattle Seahawks 17-16 in Week 11. Despite All-Pro receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) leaving the game in the first half and not returning, Stafford and the team found a way to pull out a win at home. The veteran QB completed 17 of his 31 pass attempts for 190 yards, a touchdown through the air, and an interception while rushing the ball twice for one yard. Stafford has offered a very low ceiling all season long and this will only continue with Kupp's potential absence. Consider him as a low-end QB1 and desperate start in the team's Week 12 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

Nov 19, 2023 10:41 PM EST


Matthew Stafford Slated To Play In Week 11 Against Seattle

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (thumb) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Sean McVay told reporters on Friday that this is the "healthiest" Stafford has been since the beginning of the season, which is a very encouraging sign. The veteran signal-caller missed a week of action prior to the Rams' Week 10 bye with an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) sprain in his right thumb. Stafford and rookie receiver Puka Nacua carved up the Seahawks in a Week 1 win without Cooper Kupp. However, with Stafford now healthy and Kupp back in the fold, we can expect good numbers from the Rams' pass catchers this Sunday against a Seahawks defense that has looked suspect for the last few weeks.
