Lions QB Matthew Stafford practices Monday


Lions QB Matthew Stafford practices Monday

Matthew Stafford @Staff_9's hand injury was such a minute concern, he was practicing less than 48 hours later. The Detroit Lions' starting quarterback took part in Monday's practice despite injuring a hand during Saturday's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. Specifically, Stafford suffered a broken blood vessel in his left, non-throwing hand. He didn't even wear a protective glove during Monday's work.

Fantasy Analysis:

There might be a little pain involved, but nothing to worry about for the start of the season. Stafford is an easy top-5 QB, and I would put him in front of Cam Newton. He's got much better weapons on the outside, and I highly doubt Newton will repeat his 14 rushing touchdowns from last season. And while I don't want to jump the gun here, I really don't consider Stafford to be an injury worry.

Not an injury worry? This tin man, who got injured when he fell on his own against the Jets two years ago. He's a completely out of shape guy who has a strong arm.

So you decide to ignore his most recent (injury-free) season and focus on 2 years ago? Projections are based on most recent form.
