If he was your backup QB, I'd be fine with that. You'd be taking a chance on him taking a step forward as a young QB
But putting all your eggs in the Stafford train is just crazy
I think Stafford, if he can stay healthy, has a chance to be a top ten scoring QB this season. Plus, you can get him for cheap in the drafts and load up on other positions ahead of the pick. Though, taking a chance on him only makes sense if you can get a solid backup in case he does go down, like Freeman or Flacco. Boom or Bust.
Top 10 no way.
I don't think you realize what it takes to be a top 10 fantasy QB. You have to throw for 4000 yards to be a top 10 QB.
Eli Manning who throws for around 4000 yards almost 30 TD's every year, barely sneaks into the top 10. Eli Manning is a below average starter in a 12 team fantasy league.
You think Stafford will outperform Eli Manning?
Stafford will finish around 13th-15th best overall QB if he's LUCKY.
He's the type of backup fantasy QB that you want to give spot starts to. Not rely on as your every week QB. Not in a 12 team league.
