Matthew Stafford should be considered MVP dark horse

Listen, I don't think there are many people our there who would make the argument that Matthew Stafford should be considered amongst the top favorites to be named MVP of the NFL in 2024, but we absolutely should consider him as a Dark Horse.

He has one of the best receiving wide receiver duos in the NFL in Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua and he's coming off a season where he ranked sixth in QBR behind only Brock Purdy, Dak Prescott, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, and Justin Herbert.

He will need some things to go his way to be in the MVP conversation this season, but older quarterbacks have won this award before, like Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.

At +2000 odds, Stafford has an implied probability of 4.76% of winning the award. If you were to bet $100 on him to win it, you'd win a profit of $2,000 if he's able to achieve the feat.
