We all know the pain of holding onto that stud player too long as their production evaporates and your once highly-priced asset is essentially worthless. There are also plenty of cases of players being sold expecting that decline only to go on defying the odds. This series will examine what you should do as players approach these decision points.
Matthew Stafford, QB LAR
It's amazing the difference a year makes. In February 2022, the Los Angeles Rams were fresh off a Super Bowl, and Stafford was being held up as the final piece that pushed them over the top and would keep them as a contender for the foreseeable future. Fast forward to this year and the Rams cratered unbelievably, and the franchise could struggle to have the resources to climb back up the mountain. So what does that mean for Stafford and his dynasty value?
Since Stafford became an established starter in 2011, he has been a reliable fantasy option. One noticeable blip was the 2019 season, where he finished as the QB29. However, that came in eight games where he was the QB4 in points per game. Furthermore, last year was almost a write-off the second the season started, and he finished as the QB32. Outside those two seasons, he has seven top-12 finishes and three finishes in the 12-18 range. That's an excellent career for a player who doesn't add any value in the rushing game.

2 wks ago dealt Stafford and 3rd for Conner and 2nd in a SF league. I felt it was light but not many takers.
