2 QBs Who Will Outperform Their Average Draft Position

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (QB 14 ADP #113)

  • Was on pace for 4,998 Passing Yards and 38 TDs before his injury
  • AVG 20.8 FPPG (4th among QBS in ESPN Leagues)
  • Lions return starters at every FF-eligible position; drafted RB Deandre Swift

From Week 1-9, Matthew Stafford played like a man on a mission. He seemed to really have a feel for Darrell Bevell’s offense in their first year together. And with his offseason beginning in Week 10 of last season due to his injury, I imagine he could recite the playbook by memory at this point.

The Lions brought back all of their skill position starters from 2019 and brought in competition at each position as well. Specifically, the addition of DeAndre Swift will make life a lot easier for Stafford because of his big-play ability as both a runner and receiver. The development of TJ Hockenson will also benefit Stafford as Hock showed flashes of his All-Pro potential thoughout his rookie season. In your draft, wait for Stafford instead of reaching for guys like Josh Allen or Deshaun Watson.
