First and 10: Who has most to prove?

Matthew Stafford is the siren temptress of fantasy football.

His skills are undeniable. His supporting cast is mighty. But those shoulders, those blasted shoulders!

The Detroit Lions quarterback is right at the top of the list of injured players who have the most to prove in 2011.

“He’s got to prove to America and the Detroit Lions that he’s got durability, because right now two years in the league, he’s been hurt two years,” NFL Network reporter Michael Lombardi said Monday on “NFL Total Access.”

Check out what else Lombardi had to say, and which quarterback NFL Network analyst Jamie Dukes thinks has even more to prove than Stafford.

Here’s what else is on tap Tuesday:

  • NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora filed a report last night updating the status of the labor meetings, which have moved to Minnesota for a fifth week of “secret” talks.
  • It’s never too early to start planning for your fantasy football draft. Do yourself a favor and dig into our Fantasy Draft Kit.
  • NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan has an interesting piece about the uncertain nature of free agency this year and what teams are hoping will happen to offer them more protection.
