Drew Stanton: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Stanton will start against San Francisco on Sunday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Stanton wasn't good against the Giants last week, completing 14-of-29 passes for just 167 yards, taking four sacks. The 49ers defense has been mostly effective this year, so it's hard to see Stanton getting much going against them. Owners of Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald should cross their fingers for an imminent Carson Palmer return, but it's not clear when to expect Palmer to return from his shoulder injury.
Stanton, starting in place of the injured Carson Palmer (shoulder), completed 14-of-29 passes for 167 yards Sunday against the Giants.

Stanton stands as Arizona's likely starting quarterback, after the first week of free agency. When asked at the NFL owners meetings Monday if the team's 2013 starter at QB was on the roster, coach Bruce Arians said, "Yes, we have a very capable one in Drew Stanton. Drew knows the offense, he is more than capable of doing it. If he is our guy, I am comfortable."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite the semi-endorsement, there will likely be a competition during the offseason program that could extend into training camp, especially if the Cardinals select a quarterback in the early rounds of April's NFL Draft. Stanton certainly has an advantage over any signal caller already (or potentially) on the roster, having logged time last season as a backup in Arians' system with the Colts. In any case, the battle will be an interesting one to monitor in the coming months.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Stanton will be the backup to Andrew Luck, giving the rookie a veteran presence behind him. It's hard to see Stanton getting any playing time barring a Luck injury.

2011

Stanton returns to Detroit on a one-year contract to reprise his role as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill. With Stafford's injury history, it wouldn't be surprising to see Stanton move up the depth chart, but he likely won't see much time unless both Stafford and Hill go down with injuries.

2010

Stanton will be the Lions' third quarterback, though his roster spot will always be in jeopardy should another, more experienced veteran quarterback on the waiver wire catch their eye.

2009

Stanton, Detroit's 2007 second-round pick, has yet to be given a real chance to show what he can do as a professional. There was talk early in the offseason that Detroit would bring in a veteran to compete with Stanton for the third-string QB job, but it now appears that Stanton's roster spot is secured. The former Michigan State star won't see the feild unless injuries strike both Matthew Stafford and Daunte Culpepper, in which case Detroit would probably look for a veteran option via trade or free agency.

2008

Stanton is the future at quarterback for the Lions, but that future appears to be at least a year or two off. He will have to battle Dan Orlovsky to be Jon Kitna's primary backup this year.

2007

The Lions took Drew Stanton with their first of three second-round picks in April's draft. He enters training camp third on the depth chart behind Jon Kitna and Dan Orlovsky. They likely view him as the future once Kitna is gone, but he will only make an impact this year if there are injuries.
