RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

After playing in nine games for the Cardinals in 2014 due to a variety of injuries befalling Carson Palmer, Stanton returned to his typical reserve role last season, seeing garbage time on seven occasions. If the 36-year-old Palmer remains healthy the entire year, Stanton won't be a consideration aside from the deepest of dynasty leagues. Another absence from Palmer would push Stanton into regular duty, but owners will need to be in dire need of a QB to tap the nine-year vet.

2015

Stanton proved a capable understudy when pressed into action for the injured Carson Palmer last season, going 5-3 in eight starts before being sidelined with a knee injury of his own (MCL sprain) in Week 15. However, he completed just 55.0 percent of his passes for the year and posted a 2:3 TD:INT ratio over his final four games. Stanton is an adequate fill-in but will likely never be anything more than a backup. The 6-6 Logan Thomas, whom coach Bruce Arians said will "get a ton of reps" in OTAs and training camp, could supplant Stanton as the No. 2 because of his long-term upside. Given Palmer's age and injury history, there is a good chance whoever wins that job will eventually be needed, making this perhaps the most important offseason of Stanton's career.

2014

In the second season of a three-year deal, Stanton nonetheless took a back seat to starting quarterback Carson Palmer in 2013, taking no snaps for the entirety of the campaign. Moreover, Stanton hasn't thrown a pass since 2010, when he started three consecutive games for the Lions among six appearances. Despite the presence of Ryan Lindley and this year's fourth-round pick Logan Thomas, Stanton is the Cardinals' clear-cut No. 2 under center.

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.
