Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams
Goff had a get-right opportunity in Week 13, and he took full advantage going 32-for-43 for 424 yards and a two touchdowns. With 24.96 fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring), he topped his total from the previous three games by a solid margin. It won’t be as good going forward, but Goff is still in a pretty good position.
The Seattle Seahawks are firmly in the middle of the pack in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. But entered the week allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game to the position (282.1), so they can be beaten soundly through the air. Back in Week 5, Goff posted what could be considered an expected line against Seattle (395 yards, one touchdown, one interception).
Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys is a a tough matchup, but on the angle of a potentially high-scoring game in Dallas Goff would be in line to push toward 40 pass attempts. Then won’t be usable in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers, before a rematch against Arizona in Week 17.
Goff was rightly dropped in droves. While he won’t repeat his showing from last week, at least until Week 17 Goff is a solid streamer for Week 14 with a path to production in Week 15 and a great matchup in Week 17 if it matters to your league.
