Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is always a risky start in fantasy football. He’s not been scoring much this season, and he’s prone to some really bad games marred by turnovers. However, this week the Rams play the Jets, which is enough to make Goff a viable streaming option if you need help at the position in your league’s playoffs.
Fantasy Football analysis: Rams QB Jared Goff
Goff threw for just 137 yards last week against the Patriots, the second time in his last three outings where he’s had fewer than 200 passing yards. He did throw one touchdown pass, along with an interception, and salvaged his fantasy numbers with a rushing score. That was his second rushing score in two games. However, he’s had just one game in his last six with more than one passing touchdown. In that span, he’s got six touchdown throws and seven interceptions.
But he’s got the Jets on tap this week. New York has allowed opposing passers to throw 12 touchdowns over the last four games. So even Jared Goff should be fine this week. However, he does face the Seahawks next week, a team that held him scoreless earlier this season, so this is probably just a one week thing for Goff in fantasy.
