Matthew Stafford not a great fantasy option against Falcons

Gregory Shamus

Matthew Stafford could continue his struggles against Atlanta.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a tough matchup for fantasy championships this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons.

Stafford has been somewhat of a disappointment this season, ranking No. 9 among signal callers in standard scoring Yahoo! leagues. Despite throwing for over 4,000 yards, Stafford has as many turnovers (17) as passing touchdowns this season.

Unfortunately for Stafford, the Falcons are among the ten toughest passing defenses in the NFL in terms of shutting down fantasy quarterbacks. It's really tough to count on Stafford in this one. If you somehow made it to the fantasy championship with him on your roster, you may want to look elsewhere if you want to bring home your league's title.
