Lions' Matthew Stafford: Posts career low in passing yardage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 15 of 23 passes for 101 yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona. He also rushed once for seven yards.

Playing with a sore back that limited him in practice all week, Stafford had trouble finding open receivers against a Patrick Peterson-led secondary that entered the game ranked 10th ranked in terms of yards allowed per pass attempt (7.2). He ultimately finished with his all-time lowest yardage output in any game he's started and finished, though the Lions were nonetheless able to pull out the win on the back of strong defense and a serviceable running game. Without Marvin Jones (knee) and Golden Tate (traded to Eagles), Detroit is having issues creating explosive plays through the air, and Stafford could continue to struggle to put up big numbers while playing with a depleted supporting cast. The Lions' Week 15 matchup with the Bills top-ranked pass defense isn't a great spot for a rebound.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Suiting up Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (back) is listed as active Sunday in Arizona, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Stafford will shrug off the back injury that limited him in practice all week, making his 125th start in a row in the process. Although he can be relied upon to be available from game to game, his current weapons don't give him the best chance to succeed. With Golden Tate in Philadelphia, Marvin Jones (knee) on injured reserve and Kerryon Johnson (knee) inactive, Stafford has had modest production the last two contests, totaling 481 yards and one touchdown versus three interceptions.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Trending toward playing Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (back), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, is expected to play, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

With 124 consecutive starts under his belt, Stafford is about as durable as they come at quarterback, so his status never looked to be in serious peril even after the back issue limited his participation in practice throughout the week. While he'll be less 100 percent healthy if he suits up, the greater concern for Stafford may be the lack of playmakers surrounding him on offense. For the third straight game, the Lions will be without the services of both top running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) and top receiver Marvin Jones (knee, out for season). Those absences have undoubtedly contributed to Stafford's underwhelming stat line over the past two weeks, during which he's completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 481 yards (6.8 per attempt) and a 1:3 TD:INT.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Listed as questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in Arizona.

Although Stafford was limited in practice all week, he ranks second among active offensive players in consecutive starts with 124, so he has a streak to uphold. Assuming he's active Sunday, he'll be facing a tough Cardinals defense that is fifth against the pass (220.4 yards per game) and has allowed the third-fewest TDs (16) to quarterbacks in 12 contests this season.

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

Stafford (back) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.

Estimated as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, Stafford maintained that level of activity Thursday. Like wide receiver Kenny Golladay (quadriceps), Stafford doesn't appear to be in danger of missing Sunday's game at Arizona, but his status will continue to be monitored as the weekend draws closer.
