Matthew Stafford having a monster fantasy day vs. Steelers

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

Matthew Stafford is completely going off. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is absolutely torching the Pittsburgh Steelers in the air Sunday with 327 passing yards and two TDs on 16-of-30 passing. Despite the sub-par completion percentage, he has a passer rating of 114.2 in the game and his team up at halftime, 27-20.

He has been getting -- as Drew Brees would say -- big plays all day with his 16 completions going for 20 yards a pop.

It's been the Megatron Show for the Lions. Stafford has been targeting receiver Calvin Johnson frequently with his 10 targets. Those have turned into gold to the tune of six catches for 179 yards and two scores.

As for some other players, Stafford has connected with Joique Bell three times for 48 yards and Brandon Pettigrew three times for 36 yards.

Fantasy impact: He's consistently in the top of the league in attempts and led the league in that category last year. The Lions are in the thick of a playoff race and have a nice schedule the rest of the way. Stafford owners are going to enjoy the ride the rest of the way.
