Lions QB Matthew Stafford seems ready to play. At least that is what his four-touchdown performance against the Redskins told us.
Stafford did not even make it to the halftime of Week 1 before going down with an injury, but he came out and torched the Redskins in his return. Showing that promise many fantasy enthusiasts were expecting at the beginning of the 2010 NFL season.
(And as an aside, because this is not fantasy related, but the Lions are about to rip off a bunch of wins and will challenge for the NFC North. The Lions may be the best team in the division right now.)
Stafford looks like a great play going forward — well, after that game against the Jets next week.
And you cannot talk about the Lions without mentioning WR Calvin Johnson who scored three touchdowns. Megatron scored one touchdown in the first three weeks of the season. But Johnson has scored seven touchdowns in his last four games.
