by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Matthew Stafford shows better judgment, technique
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

It's only one game, but early returns were promising for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. After making bad decisions and displaying poor fundamentals late last season, Stafford did nearly everything right in Monday's win over the Giants.

"I do think Matthew did a tremendous job of making good decisions," coach Jim Caldwell told the Detroit Free Press. "I think you saw him spread the ball around quite a bit. I thought he did a nice job of not forcing the ball. He did take some check-downs that ended up being pretty sizable plays for us."

Stafford threw for 346 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a score without committing a turnover.

Matthew Stafford shines with three touchdowns in Week 1 win
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford got off to a dream start, scoring three touchdowns Monday night against the Giants in Week 1.

Stafford scrambled and escaped the rush to keep the play alive before firing a 67-yard touchdown to Calvin Johnson, who was left all alone downfield on the opening drive of the game. Stafford found Johnson again, who made a leaping grab for a 16-yard touchdown on the ensuing drive. He showed his wheels in the third quarter, scoring from 5 yards out.

He compiled 346 yards through the air while completing 22 of 32 passes. He threw for two touchdowns and no interceptions, finishing with a 125.3 passer rating. 212 of his 346 yards came in the first half. He also had four carries for two yards and a touchdown.

Stafford will travel to Carolina to face the Panthers in Week 2. He hasn't faced Carolina since 2011. He carved them up for 335 yards through the air, with five touchdowns and two interceptions.

Fantasy Analysis | 1409887067
Starting Stafford Week 1 is about as safe of a bet as it gets
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had a rough outing his last time out against the Giants in 2013. He'll look to rebound at home come Week 1.

Stafford completed 25 of 42 passes for 222 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. This time around, he'll have a few new weapons to target, most notably Golden Tate. Last season, Stafford averaged 290.6 yards per game. The Giants allowed 223.3 yards through the air in 2013, which ranked 10th best in the league.

Regardless of the matchup, Stafford was one of the most consistent signal callers in Fantasy last season, and that hasn't changed. Starting Stafford against New York is about as safe of a bet as it gets for Week 1.
