  • Kevin Dotson Expected To Hit Free-Agent Market

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said the organization has had discussions with offensive lineman Kevin Dotson about a potential contract extension, but he anticipates him to hit the free-agent market. After three seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dotson, along with a 2024 fifth- and 2025 sixth-round pick, was traded to the Rams for a 2024 fourth- and 2025 fifth-round pick. He was graded as one of the best guards in the NFL last season, according to PFF, so he should have no shortage of interested suitors. Snead said the Rams will remain in contact with him with hopes of bringing him back to block for running back Kyren Williams and quarterback Matthew Stafford in 2024.

  • Matthew Stafford Falls Short In Detroit Return

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford could not come out on top in the team's wildcard loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Stafford completed 25 of his 36 pass attempts for 367 yards and two touchdowns. Despite him shredding Detroit's defense, the Rams could not come out on top. Stafford ended the year on a strong note and surprised many people with his performance this season. Heading into next season, the veteran QB should be considered as a low-end QB1 and will be a solid option late in fantasy drafts.

He completed 62.2 percent of his passes this past season, reaping the rewards of a receiving corps led by Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua. He finished the year with 3,965 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions while ranking as the overall QB15 in fantasy football.

  • Left Tackle Alaric Jackson Out For Rams On Sunday

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams left tackle Alaric Jackson (thigh) will be inactive in Week 17 against the New York Giants due to what the team is calling a personal reason. Jackson was added to the injury report on Friday as questionable with a thigh issue, but at that time they expected that he would play on Sunday. Meanwhile, Joe Noteboom (foot) is active despite coming into this contest with a questionable tag, and he will likely start at left tackle on quarterback Matthew Stafford's blind side with Jackson being out. The 28-year-old Noteboom has started seven of the 13 games he's played in for the Rams in his sixth year with the team. Jackson's absence on the left side of LA's offensive line will be something to watch on Sunday.

  • Matthew Stafford A Solid QB1 Option In Week 17

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has dominated over the last five weeks. Stafford is averaging 277 yards and just under three touchdown passes per game during that span. Despite a relatively slow fantasy start to the season, the veteran has picked it up and become a weekly top-10 option at the position. He now faces a New York Giants defense that has allowed just 19 touchdown passes in 15 games. Despite a possible negative game script and the Rams potentially being run-heavy against the Giants, Stafford should be considered a QB1 with his recent elite efficiency.

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford came ready to play during Thursday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The veteran signal-caller looked lackluster in the first half of the season, but has turned it around over the last few weeks. On Thursday, Stafford completed 24-of-34 passing attempts for 328 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the win. Stafford nearly had more than a pair of scores, but couldn't connect with his receivers on some red zone trips. Regardless, it was a strong outing for Stafford as the Rams improve to 5-1 in their last six games. Stafford will have a plus matchup versus the New York Giants next week.

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has emerged as an intriguing fantasy football option and remains worth starting against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football in Week 16. The veteran signal-caller has impressed over his last four weeks, averaging 24 completions, 265 yards, and three passing touchdowns per game. He also has just one interception over that span, showcasing his strong poise and accuracy. Despite a matchup against New Orleans' respectable defense, Stafford, armed with elite weapons in the passing game, ranks as a fringe fantasy QB1.

  • Matthew Stafford A Mid-Range QB1 In Week 15

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off an incredible three-game stretch. Stafford has thrown 10 touchdowns and just one interception over that span, scoring the second-most fantasy points since Week 12 behind only Dak Prescott. Stafford went through a tough stretch where he offered an extremely low-ceiling earlier in the season. With the offense now healthier, the veteran QB has shown that he is still worthy of being an every-week fantasy starter. He faces a Washington Commanders defense in Week 15 that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing QBs. Treat Stafford as a Mid-Range to High-End QB1 this week.

The veteran QB completed 23 of his 41 pass attempts for 294 yards and three touchdowns through the air. He also rushed the ball once for a loss of a yard. Considering that Baltimore has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, Stafford exceeded all expectations. The team has been rolling offensively since the return of running back Kyren Williams. Consider Stafford as a mid-range QB1 in a soft Week 15 matchup against the Washington Commanders.
