Draft note
by John Paulsen
After finishing inside the top 11 in 2017 and 2018, Goff finished 13th at his position in 2019, but had the No. 18 per game average among quarterbacks who played at least eight games. He finished the season strong, with five straight games in the 16.1-25.2 range (including three games of 20+), and that coincided with Sean McVay utilizing more two-TE sets, so there’s the possibility that McVay “figured out” how to counter the 6-1 defense that the Patriots used in Super Bowl LIII. Still, Goff’s pedestrian play in 2019 indicates that he’s not necessarily good enough to overcome mediocre offensive line play or a game plan that isn’t working. Consider Goff a solid QB2 who should be used as a streamer or in a quarterback committee.

LAR QB Jared Goff - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Last season was a far cry for Jared Goff’s 2018 season where he looked to be one of the brightest young QBs in the NFL. After a flurry of injuries to his receiving group and having to deal with one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, Goff finished the season as a high-end QB2. There is plenty of reason for optimism for Goff in 2020 as WR Cooper Kupp will finally have a clean bill of health—and TE Tyler Higbee has seemingly had a late-season breakout last year. Alongside WR Robert Woods and capable slot WR Josh Reynolds, Goff has plenty of weapons and one of the best offensive minds in head coach Sean McVay to recapture some of his 2018 form.

Fantasy Downside

Even though Goff had adequate skill players to succeed last season, he could not survive the poor offensive line play. With defenders consistently harassing the pocket, Goff threw for a career-high 16 interceptions and had 10 fumbles. With the Rams inability to bolster their offensive line in the off-season, there is potential for this o-line to get worse. Goff will also be without his top deep-play specialist in Brandin Cooks after his trade to the Rams this off-season, potentially capping his big-play opportunities.

2020 Bottom Line

Goff proved last season that he does not have the requisite talent to survive poor offensive line play, which will be the biggest narrative in the 2020 season. We have Goff ranked 19th amongst quarterbacks and his current ADP in 12-team leagues currently has him going in the early 12th round. McVay’s switch to a two-tight end late last season seemed to quell some offensive line play as well as improve Goff’s performance. If the team can grow on this, Goff might be able to overcome his current QB2 ADP.
