Lions' Matthew Stafford: Excels despite hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (hand) completed 36 of 44 passes for 381 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Buccaneers.

Stafford had apparently looked increasingly better each day in practice this past week, and he parlayed that improvement into his second-best passing yardage total of the season. The veteran signal caller connected with eight different pass catchers on the afternoon and led an eight-play, 49-yard drive that set up a game-winning field goal by Matt Prater with 20 seconds remaining. It was Stafford's fourth 300-yard effort of the season, and he's also thrown for between 292 and 299 yards in three other games. He'll look to continue his strong season against the Bears in Week 15.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Playing through bruised hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (hand) is listed as active Sunday at Tampa Bay.

As he did throughout the week, Stafford will take the field Sunday with the ring and pinkie fingers taped on his bruised right hand, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Playing through a finger issue last season, Stafford completed 59.5 percent of his passes, averaged 271.3 yards through the air per game, and posted two touchdowns versus three interceptions across four outings.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford's throwing hand made daily improvement over the week, and the quarterback is expected to start Sunday against the Buccaneers, per a source, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Stafford will face a Tampa Bay team that ranks 31st in passing defense (267.3 YPG) and 21st in points per game (24.0).

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Enters weekend as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (right hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay.

Head coach Jim Caldwell opened Friday's media session with nary an answer about Stafford's health, saying he's "progressing" and throwing "decently." During the open portion of practice, though, Stafford let it rip, despite having two fingers taped on his bruised throwing hand. Among his tosses, he completed a 45-yarder to Bradley Marquez. Perhaps the biggest question mark around Stafford's potential output is the state of the offensive line, as starting right tackle Rick Wagner (ankle), right guard T.J. Lang (foot) and center Travis Swanson (knee) are all questionable for the contest.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford was listed as a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

Though Stafford wasn't upgraded to full participation in practice, it nonetheless seems he stepped up his involvement during the session. According to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com, Stafford was able to throw during the 15 minutes of practice made available to the media, with his touch passes looking normal. However, because Stafford had two fingers taped up during the workout -- one less finger than he taped Monday -- his throws were lacking in zip, which could hinder his effectiveness by the time Sunday's game against the Buccaneers arrives. The expectation is that Stafford will fight through the bruised hand to play in Week 14, but his injury could make him a riskier fantasy option than usual in an otherwise favorable matchup.
