Rams Beat: QB Jared Goff not ready to take over

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Rams QB Jared Goff isn't having the best run under center, struggling early to adapt.

Things are going so poorly that, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher/Report, Goff isn't just behind Case Keenum on the Rams depth chart -- he's the third-string quarterback behind Sean Mannion as well.

"Jared Goff is currently not the Rams' starting quarterback and may not be the No. 2 according to sources, I talked to. Two coaches admitted Goff's talent is obvious and he will eventually be the starter. But he's also not ready to take over. Veteran Case Keenum is still running the L.A. offense. Goff is often being outperformed by second-year pro Sean Mannion in practice. Goff was the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft but there's no guarantee he'll be the No. 1 quarterback any time soon."

Fantasy Impact: 

Goff is listed as the second quarterback on the depth chart at the Rams official site. But those preseason depth charts are often just put out by the PR teams and aren't designed to be official for coaching staff purposes, the story pointed out. Still, Goff seems to be struggling at this point in camp and doesn't seem likely to begin the year as the team's starter.
