Stafford is headed to the Pro Bowl.

Stafford replaces Peyton Manning of Denver. Stafford finished the regular season with 4,257 yards passing, helping Detroit to its second postseason berth in four years.

Stafford fell to 0-2 in the playoffs.

Stafford was 28 of 42 for 323 yards playing against his hometown team.

Stafford finished 20 of 41 for 217 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Stafford threw the ball fewer times this season (602) than he did in any of his previous three complete NFL seasons. His rating (85.7) exceeded his career mark, but his fantasy production certainly suffered with just 22 TDs.

Stafford completed just 22 of 39 passes for 243 yards and two picks in Sunday's win at Chicago.

Not the performance fantasy owners were looking for from Stafford, who's thrown six TD passes in the last six games.

Stafford threw for a season-low 153 yards and just one touchdown in Sunday's win over Minnesota.

Sunday's dud surely came as a bit of a surprise to fantasy owners, who watched Stafford throw for 701 yards and five scores over the previous two weeks. We like his chances of bouncing back in Week 16 against a woeful Bears defense.

Staffor enjoyed another big-time performance in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay, going 26 for 34 for 311 yards and three TDs.

Stafford owns a 123.4 passer rating over his last two games and appears to be getting hot at just the right time for owners in the fantasy playoffs.

Stafford was 34 of 45 for 390 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's win over Chicago.

It was a season high in yardage for Stafford and his first game in six without an interception, but he probably needs to show some sustained success to regain the trust of fantasy owners. He hadn't thrown a TD pass in the previous two weeks and his rating over seven games was 75.2.

Stafford hasn't thrown a touchdown pass in consecutive games for only the second time in his career.

In his last two games, Stafford has completed just 47.4 percent of his attempts for 447 yards and two interceptions. He's been a disappointment to fantasy owners this season.

Stafford led the way for Detroit with 325 passing yards and two touchdowns Sunday in London.

Those two scores gave Stafford 120 touchdown passes, a Lions record, two more than Hall of Famer Bobby Layne.

Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the final 3:38, including the winner to Corey Fuller with 1:48 remaining, lifting the Lions over the New Orleans Saints 24-23 on Sunday.

Stafford connected on 67.5 percent of his passes (27 of 40) despite Calvin Johnson's absence after completing 57.8 percent in his first two games this month. With 299 yards, he just missed topping 300 for the first time since the season opener. Protection continues to be a problem for Stafford. He was sacked three times and has been taken down 23 times in the last six games. Stafford was also intercepted twice and has six INTs to seven TDs in that six-game span.
