For the second straight season, Stafford failed to attempt over 600 passes after doing so in each of the previous four years in the league, highlighted by 2011 (663) and 2012 (727) when he led the league. His completion rate (65.3) remained strong and he threw a career low 10 Ints. Over the past six years, Stafford has been an every other year player in passing TDs (41, 20, 29, 22, 32, and 24) while passing for over 4,200 yards in each year. Even with a high number of throws in most years, his yards per pass attempt have been just above league average over the last four seasons (7.3, 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3). In 2016, he had over 300 yards passing in four games and four games with three TDs or more (none over his last 10 games). His receiving core is great, but Stafford will use all of his resources. I would consider him a league average Fantasy option at QB with a chance at 4,500 passing yards with over 25 combined TDs.
