When it comes to fantasy football, it has become more and more popular for people to wait until the later rounds to select a quarterback. Could that make Matthew Stafford a valuable late-round target in fantasy football drafts for the upcoming season?
Lamar Jackson was being taken later in fantasy drafts last year, even going undrafted in some of them. The second-year quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens would finish the 2019 season as the highest-scoring quarterback in fantasy football.
On the other hand, Stafford was on a torrid pace with the Detroit Lions before suffering a season-ending back injury in 2019. As he continues to recover from his back injury, Stafford is poised to have a bounce-back year next season.
While loading up on running backs and wide receivers, there are a few quarterbacks that should be considered in the later rounds of drafts. With that in mind, let’s take a deeper look as to why Stafford could be a massive steal in fantasy football in 2020.
