Matthew Stafford Hits A Wall In Week 3

Tuesday, September 26, 3:16 AM

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford opened the 2023 season with back-to-back 300-yard games, but talk of the 15-year veteran's rejuvenation stalled out in Week 3. In Monday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, he was intercepted twice and sacked four times while going 18-for-33 for 269 yards and one touchdown. Stafford did lead the Rams into the red zone four times and got within 30 yards of the goal line twice more, but could not get the Rams across the goal line until their final possession of the game. Monday's score was just his second touchdown in 126 total pass attempts this season, the second-worst rate in the league after Ryan Tannehill. Even though Stafford has another favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 4, by now he can't be trusted to finish any higher than as a QB2.

Jordan Love Leads Packers To Comeback Victory

Sunday, September 24, 7:12 PM

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love completed 22 of 44 passes for 259 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while adding nine carries for 39 yards and an additional score during the team's 18-17 win over the New Orleans Saints. The Packer's offense was stagnant in the first half, as it seemed the Saints' defense was too much for Green Bay to overcome. However, the 24-year-old jump-started the comeback in the fourth, taking the ball in on the ground for a one-yard score and then hitting Romeo Doubs on an eight-yard strike to give the Packers the lead. It was an impressive come-from-behind win for the Packers starting quarterback, especially considering he was without Christian Watson (hamstring) and Aaron Jones (hamstring). Love's upcoming schedule is great for fantasy purposes, and he should be considered a fringe QB1 next week against Detroit.
