Matthew Stafford Throws Four Touchdowns In Win

Sunday, November 26, 7:59 PM

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.

Aidan O'Connell Expected To Start, Jimmy Garoppolo To The Bench

Wednesday, November 1, 12:03 PM

The Las Vegas Raiders are expected to start rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell in Week 9 against the New York Giants and going forward, with Jimmy Garoppolo heading to the bench. The Raiders cleaned house Tuesday night by firing both head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler, and they also axed offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi on Wednesday. The Raiders are going in a new direction after a 3-5 start. The 25-year-old O'Connell has completed 65.4% of his 52 pass attempts in his first two NFL games (one start) this year, throwing for 313 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Given the way Garoppolo had been playing, O'Connell has a low bar to clear to be considered an improvement, and it will start with involving All-Pro wideout Davante Adams more. O'Connell will be a low-end QB2 option for fantasy managers this Sunday against the Giants and moving forward.
