Matthew Stafford injury update: Fantasy value stable with 'probable' status

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Stafford left last week's game with a leg injury and is listed as having a hip injury on the team's official report. Stafford missed Wednesday's practice, was a limited participant in Thursday's practice and practiced in full on Friday. He should be ready to play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Matthew Stafford should have his breakout game against a porous Minnesota Vikings secondary. Despite his injury, Stafford appears to be ready to play and will have most of the offense around him healthy as well. Stafford and the Lions have been slow out of the gate, but this could be the game where they get things rolling.
