  • Matthew Stafford Intercepted Twice In Loss

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made some costly mistakes in the team's 30-23 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Facing a tough defense, Stafford went 34-of-55 for 307 pass yards, one touchdown, and four carries that accounted for 17 yards. While the team fought against one of the league's top defenses and teams, Stafford threw two costly second-half interceptions. The 35-year-old has thrown for over 300 yards in back-to-back games, and it is evident that the Rams will throw the ball a ton this year. Until Cooper Kupp is back, Stafford is a low-end QB1 against the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Puka Nacua Draws An Absurd 20 Targets In Loss

    Headshot for Cooper Kupp

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua (oblique) dominated once again in the team's Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Despite being listed on the injury report and entering this game as questionable, Nacua looked more than healthy and broke records. The 5th-round rookie caught 15 of his 20 targets for 147 yards, giving Nacua 25 catches through his first two career games, an NFL record. He also had two carries, which resulted in four yards. The 22-year-old has proven to be Matthew Stafford's primary target with Cooper Kupp out, as he finished with over 30 PPR points this week. Nacua should be locked into your starting lineup each week with Kupp out and is a low-end WR1 in full-PPR leagues.

  • Matthew Stafford - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford looks to continue his excellent level of play in the team's Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. In the Rams' first-week upset of the Seattle Seahawks, Stafford went 24-for-38, resulting in 334 yards, the third-most pass yards of any quarterback during Week 1. Stafford looked to have an established connection with Puka Nacua (oblique) and Tutu Atwell with All-Pro receiver Cooper Kupp (hamstring) out. The veteran QB has an extremely tough matchup against one of the league's top defenses in Week 2; therefore, fantasy managers should not start Stafford in single-quarterback leagues under any circumstances.

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 24 of 38 pass attempts for 334 yards in the team's 30-13 win against the Seattle Seahawks. He also added 11 rushing yards but failed to score a touchdown in either department. The former Super Bowl champion was without All-Pro wide receiver Cooper Kupp but young receivers Puka Nacua (10 catches for 119 yards) and Tutu Atwell (6 for 119) stepped up in his absence. The Rams' passing game will be tougher to trust against San Francisco in Week 2 but Stafford could find himself back on the radar in redraft leagues when Kupp returns.

  • Matthew Stafford Looks To Put Disappointing 2022 Season Behind Him

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is entering his 15th season in the league and faces the Seattle Seahawks in the team's regular season opener. Stafford appeared in nine games last season and averaged 12.9 fantasy points per game. To put it into perspective, this was lower than Andy Dalton, Davis Mills, Matt Ryan, Sam Darnold, Marcus Mariota, and many more QBs. The 35-year-old will not have his All-Pro receiver Cooper Kupp (hamstring) to start the season. Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, and Puka Nacua will likely be in three wide-receiver sets, along with Tyler Higbee starting at tight end. Stafford should not be an option in 1QB leagues this week and is mainly an option in superflex formats.

  • Matthew Stafford Unlikely To Play In Preseason Opener

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is not expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason matchup versus the Los Angeles Chargers. The 35-year-old dealt with a handful of injuries last season, which limited him to nine games. The good news is, Stafford is throwing without any neck issues. However, the Rams don't want to push it, so Stafford will sit out the preseason opener. The expectation is that Brett Rypien and Stetson Bennett will split the reps without Stafford available. Fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned about Stafford's health right now.

  • Matthew Stafford Won't Miss Anymore Days Of Camp

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said the plan was for quarterback Matthew Stafford to rest on Monday at training cap so that he stays on a schedule similar to the regular season, where he will throw four out of seven days. McVay said Stafford will not miss anymore days of training camp. The 35-year-old veteran didn't have a normal training camp last year while coming off an elbow injury, and his season ended prematurely in 2022 due to a severe neck injury. However, he's beyond both issues and is fully healthy heading into the 2023 season. Still, Stafford's recent injury history and a terrible offensive line in front of him aren't recipes for fantasy success. Consider him more of a low-end QB2 this year.

  • Matthew Stafford Has Full Workload

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is throwing what appears to be a full workload at training camp, which is something he was unable to do before the last two seasons due to various injuries. "I feel a lot better physically," Stafford said, "I feel really healthy compared to where I was at this point last year, so that's fun for me." Stafford played in just nine games due to a neck injury in 2022, and with both him and All-Pro wideout Cooper Kupp (ankle) missing significant time, the Rams' offense went off the rails. It's good news that Stafford is fully healthy heading into the 2023 campaign, but he'll be working behind a porous offensive line and he's now 35 years old. There's not very much fantasy upside here anymore.

  • Rams Had "Unanimous" Agreement To Keep Matthew Stafford For 2023

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was in the trade rumor headlines this offseason, but head coach Sean McVay said the organization was in "unanimous agreement" to keep the veteran quarterback for at least one more season. Stafford struggled through elbow and spinal cord injuries in his 14th NFL campaign last year, throwing for just 2,087 yards, 10 touchdowns, and eight interceptions in nine starts. Still, multiple teams called Los Angeles about a potential trade for the 35-year-old gun-slinger. It looks like he'll remain the starter for Los Angeles in 2023 -- barring any injury setbacks. That said, rookie quarterback Stetson Bennett could draw a start or two if the team has a poor record heading into the final weeks of the regular season.

  • Rams Tried To Trade Matthew Stafford

    Headshot for Matthew Stafford

    The Los Angeles Rams "tried to trade" quarterback Matthew Stafford this offseason, according to Michael Lombardi on the Pat McAfee Show. "Before his option bonus was kicking in the Rams attempted with a lot of effort to move Matthew Stafford. Any team could've had him," Lombardi said. While the Rams may have attempted to trade the 35-year-old signal-caller, it didn't come to fruition and Stafford will open the year as LA's starter under center. The 2022 season was a disaster for the entire Rams offense, and Stafford missed the final seven games due to a spinal-cord contusion. He should bounce back this year with better health, but he's going to need other receivers besides Cooper Kupp to step up, and the Rams offensive line is also sketchy. Consider Stafford a QB2 in fantasy.
