NFLGARAGE QUARTERBACK MATTHEW STAFFORD



Projected Week 1 starter: Matthew Stafford

Backups: Jake Rudock, Matt Cassel

2018 outlook: Matthew Stafford has been good for 4,200 yards and averaged 28 touchdowns a year over the past seven seasons. Things are looking just fine.

In case of emergency: Matt Cassel won't outright win any games for the Lions, but he's good enough to keep them in the mix.

Long term plans: Stafford is entering his 10th year in the league, but there's no reason to think that the Lions wouldn't keep him around for ten more.
