Detroit is dealing QB Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two future first-round picks, a third-round pick and QB Jared Goff, per sources. Two former No. 1 overall picks trading places in the first blockbuster NFL trade of 2021.
We have our first domino falling in the QB realm for 2021. Both Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff inherit some talented weapons in their respective offenses.
LAR QB Jared Goff - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Seattle
Goff had a rough game last week against the New York Jets as he completed 23-of-34 passes for 209 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. In what should have been one of Goff’s better performances of the season against a porous Jets defense, Goff went full Jared “Goof” and could not lead consistent offensive drives which ultimately resulted in an embarrassing loss to the previous winless Jets.
Week 16 brings on the Seattle Seahawks who rank 20th in aFPA to QBs this season. Goff had his worst game of the season against Seattle during their Week 10 matchup where he threw 302 yards for zero touchdowns and one lost fumble. It will be hard to trust Goff with high stakes during championship week, however, if you must, he’ll be a low-end QB2 this week.
