Matthew Stafford can't find end zone in yet another underwhelming fantasy performance

Matthew Stafford was held without a passing touchdown during the Lions' loss Sunday to the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matthew Stafford went 30-for-51 passing for 319 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions during Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Vikings. Coming off a hip injury, Stafford appeared to struggle at times, though he was the victim of several dropped passes as well.

Fantasy Impact: For as many times as Stafford has thrown the ball this season, he has yet to have the kind of breakout fantasy performance that fantasy owners have been hoping for since they made him one of the first quarterbacks taken in their fantasy drafts. He has just three passing touchdowns through four games. Stafford did have to contend with several drops, however, including an uncharacteristically poor game from ace wide receiver Calvin Johnson. The Lions have a bye week next week. Stafford will hopefully come out Week 6 in peak 2011 form.
