Rams to start Jared Goff at QB

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Jared Goff era is about to begin in Los Angeles after all.

The rookie quarterback and first-overall selection of the 2016 NFL Draft is set to start in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins, NFL Network's Michael Silver reported. ESPN first reported the news.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Rams didn't feel Goff was ready to start the season over Case Keenum, and even recently HC Jeff Fisher didn't exactly endorse the rookie saying Goff would get his chance once the Rams were eliminated from the playoffs. While it was just the preseason, Goff struggled throwing two interceptions and fumbling three times. Goff probably has more upside the Keenum, and you can even argue he has better weapons to throw to than Eagle rookie Carson Wentz, but it's tough to tell what you're going to get in Goff's first NFL game. He may be worth grabbing in two-QB leagues if you need help at the position, but in typical leagues there will likely be better options and he's certainly risky to immediately throw into lineups this week.
