Lions' Matthew Stafford (ankle, ribs, thumb) expected to play in Week 17
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is expected to start in the team's Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings despite his ankle, ribs, and thumb injuries.
Stafford seems intent on toughing through the Lions' final game of the season despite his injuries and despite the Lions' abysmal year. He left last week's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first quarter after sustaining an ankle injury and would be in danger of reinjury or getting pulled early in today's contest.
Our models project Stafford for 18.8 fantasy points in today's game against the Vikings' struggling pass defense. FanDuel has set his salary at $7,400.
