Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams @ Denver Broncos
DK Price: $6,000
The Rams have scored over 30 points on offense in each game this season and leading the way for them has been quarterback, Jared Goff. Goff has thrown for over 300 yards in each of his last four games this season and even managed 465 yards and 5 TD’s in his Week 4 matchup against the Vikings.
This week, Goff and the Rams get a mile-high road game against the Denver Broncos. While the Broncos have been middle of the pack when it comes to fantasy points allowed to QB’s, they did just give up 3 TD’s to rookie Sam Darnold last week, including some big splash plays to deep threat Robby Anderson.
As long as Goff gets both Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp back healthy, he should have no problem carving up this defense with arguably one of the best trio of wideouts in the league. Goff is a great value priced as the QB8 despite his 26.2 average fantasy points per game on DraftKings ranking him as QB3 just behind Ryan Fitzpatrick (28.6) and Matt Ryan (26.5).
