Masterful in playoff victory

Stafford completed 28 of 38 pass attempts for 366 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for six yards and another score on four attempts in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Buccaneers.

Stafford and Cooper Kupp dominated Tampa Bay's secondary from start to finish, with the duo's only blemishes coming in the fourth quarter on a pair of lost fumbles (the botched snap was credited to center Brian Allen). From a fantasy perspective, this was about as clean of an outing as you could ask for from the Rams' quarterback. Stafford has now scored three combined touchdowns in three consecutive games, the first of which came against the same San Francisco defense he will be facing in the next round. The dominant QB-WR duo saved their best for last when Kupp outran the entire defense and Stafford fired a rocket that hit his favorite target in stride to set up the game-winning field goal as time expired. Stafford will now move on to face the 49ers in the NFC Championship game, and his value should be treated similarly to this week, as the 49ers' secondary is prone to being beat over the top. If veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) is able to return before next Sunday, it will boost Stafford and company's value after the team played without the star lineman in today's victory.
