First and 10: Ready to buy Stafford hype?

Sure, we all know that there’s very little fantasy stock to be taken when an NFL player discusses his own fantasy value. What’s he gonna say? He can be humble or ultra-positive, but he’s not offering any in-depth analysis –- and he’s certainly not giving you any points of comparison. So when NFL.com spoke to Lions QB Matt Stafford Wednesday, he didn’t say he’ll be putting up better numbers than Peyton Manning this season. Still, when a guy like Stafford says he is 100 percent healthy and ready to lead an explosive offense, you can’t help but get excited about it. Stafford has been dubbed a potential star among NFL.com’s fantasy experts this season. And this Q&A will do nothing to lessen that enthusiasm.
