News: Stafford completed just 18-of-46 passes for 264 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's 34-9 loss to the Patriots. He also rushed for 18 yards on three carries. Impact: Stafford and the Lions have now gone eight consecutive quarters without scoring a touchdown, with the quarterback completing just 47 percent of his passes during that span. It's pretty ugly in Detroit right now, but the Lions' saving grace may be the upcoming schedule: three straight home games against the Bears, Buccaneers, and Vikings. That stretch begins with a Thanksgiving game against a Chicago defense that ranked 31st in the NFL in yards per attempt (8.2), entering Week 12.(RotoWire, )

News: Stafford completed 18-of-30 passes for 183 yards and an interception in Sunday's 14-6 loss at Arizona. He was also sacked four times. Impact: Stafford was under constant pressure and had a really tough time sustaining drives. He was playing in a tough environment against a fierce defense, but that probably doesn't console fantasy owners. He'll have another tough matchup next week at New England.(RotoWire, )

News: Stafford completed 25-of-40 passes for 280 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Dolphins. Impact: Stafford finally got his favorite weapon back, and he used him heavily, throwing 15 passes to wideout Calvin Johnson, who caught seven for 113 yards and a touchdown. Wideout Golden Tate, who was the top receiver with Johnson sidelined due to an ankle injury, caught 11 passes on 13 targets for 109 yards himself, as no other player caught more than two balls. Stafford's final pass of the day was an 11-yard touchdown to running back Theo Riddick, extending his two-touchdown streak to three games. His prospects to make it four are promising, as the Lions will face off against a Cardinals defense in Week 11 that is allowing the most passing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )
