Lions beat writer Michael Rothstein expects the team to open up the offense and allow quarterback Matthew Stafford to have more control at the line of scrimmage this season.

What It Means:

Stafford will be entering his seventh NFL season, and it looks as though he will have more freedom than ever before. Stafford has perennially flirted with 20 interceptions year after year but threw a career-low 12 last season.

Stafford's interception rate of 2.0% was the lowest of his career, as well, and it will be interesting to see if the bigger role will change his decision-making. Stafford was the 11th-best quarterback in the league last season, according to our Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, which compares a player's performance to historical expectation level. However, his mark of 65.38 was a full 40 points lower than Philip Rivers' (105.93), who ranked ninth. Stafford is expected to be the seventh-best fantasy quarterback this season, according to our algorithms.
