LAR QB Jared Goff - Week 19 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 19 vs. Dallas Cowboys
In his third NFL season, Jared Goff completed 364-of-561 pass attempts for 4,688 yards with 32 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. While the 12 picks were five more than Goff threw in 2017, the signal-caller set new career-highs in passing yards, touchdowns, completion percentage and QB rating. That said, Goff struggled following the Rams’ bye week and shootout victory over the Chiefs. Part of that was due to the defenses that L.A. faced, but Goff’s production and efficiency have also taken a hit since Cooper Kupp suffered a season-ending injury. As for his matchup with the Cowboys, Dallas ranks 10th against fantasy quarterbacks this season. Goff is projected to score 18.6 points per game, which ranks fourth behind Patrick Mahomes (23.3), Drew Brees (21.4) and Andrew Luck (20.7). Defenses like Chicago and Atlanta (Divisional round playoffs last year) with athletic linebackers have given Sean McVay’s offense issues in the past and Dallas has one of the most athletic linebacking corps in the league. While the Rams employed one of the most dangerous offenses in the league again this year, we would temper our expectations for Goff on Saturday night when the Rams host the Cowboys. He is our QB4 for the Divisional Round.
