Player Outlook
Goff will never fall under the category of a league-winning Fantasy quarterback, but he can be a serviceable starter. He's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all one-quarterback leagues and a mid-round selection in Superflex and two-quarterback formats. For the second year in a row, Goff averaged at least 20.1 Fantasy points per game. He's passed for at least 4,438 yards and 29 touchdowns in each of the past two seasons, and there's a good chance he should finish in that range again in 2024. He has solid weapons in Amon-Ra St. Brown, Sam LaPorta, Jameson Williams, Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery, one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, and Detroit kept play caller Ben Johnson this season, which is a huge plus. Goff is an excellent Fantasy quarterback to wait for on Draft Day in all leagues.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Lands four-year, $212M extension

    Goff agreed to a four-year, $212 million contract extension with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The deal contains $170 million guaranteed, and Goff is now the highest-paid player in Lions franchise history. The 2016 No. 1 overall pick of the Rams, Goff was acquired from Los Angeles in the Matthew Stafford deal following the 2020 season and has resurrected his career under Detroit offensive coordinator Ben Johnson. In three seasons with Detroit, Goff has completed 66.5 percent of his passes -- up from 63.4 percent with Los Angeles -- and has thrown for 12,258 yards with a stellar 78:27 TD:INT. He's lowered his turnover rate with Detroit and just helped lead the team to the NFC Championship Game last season. Goff is still just 29 years old and is locked in with the Lions for at least the next few seasons.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Discussing new deal

    Goff and the Lions have begun negotiations on a contract extension, Kyle Meinke of reports. The same is true for star wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown, one of the team's nine regular starters on offense currently under contract with the Lions for 2024. The two exceptions are wide receiver Josh Reynolds, who averaged 3.8 targets per game last year, and right guard Jonah Jackson, who has already been replaced by 2023 Pro Bowler Kevin Zeitler. Even offensive coordinator Ben Johnson is back for another year, after many assumed he'd leave for a head coaching job. Goff has just one season and $27.3 million remaining on a four-year extension he originally signed with the Rams. What was once viewed as an overpay has now become one of the best values among veteran QB contracts, with the 29-year-old coming off consecutive seasons with more than 4,400 passing yards and at least 29 TDs. Goff hasn't quite been as effective for fantasy managers, as he offers next to nothing on the ground and plays in an offense that got 47 rushing TDs from its running backs over the past two seasons.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Falls short in NFC Championship

    Goff completed 25 of 41 passes for 273 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the 49ers. Goff did a solid job of keeping the Detroit offense on schedule in the first half, as the team found the end zone three times. The running game was the primary force behind that success, however, and miscues by players other than Goff primarily led to the unit stalling in the final two quarters. The end result was a mediocre performance for Goff, as he averaged only 6.7 yards per attempt, and his lone touchdown came with just 56 seconds remaining in the game and the Lions down two scores. Despite the disappointing end to the campaign, Goff enjoyed a solid season, as he reached 30 passing touchdowns in the regular season for the first time since 2018 while averaging a solid 7.6 yards per attempt. He remains under contract with Detroit for 2024, though it will be interesting to see if the team offers him a long-term extension during the offseason.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Two TDs in divisional-round win

    Goff completed 30 of 43 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-23 divisional-round win over the Buccaneers. After a tight first half that saw the two teams battle to a 10-10 standstill, Goff got rolling after halftime and led the Lions on three straight TD drives, capping the last one with a nine-yard scoring strike to Amon-Ra St. Brown. Goff has a 12:2 TD:INT over his last six games with a 70.5 percent completion rate and 8.0 YPA, but he'll face a tough test in the NFC Championship Game next weekend on the road in San Francisco.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Posts 121.8 QBR against former team

    Goff completed 22 of 27 pass attempts for 277 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers in Sunday's 24-23 win over the Rams. The term "revenge game" gets bandied about frequently, but it might be tough to find a stronger example than Goff's performance Sunday against the team that drafted him first overall in 2016. The 29-year-old completed nearly every pass attempt for a 121.8 QB rating en route to a victory over the quarterback (Matthew Stafford) he was traded for back in 2020. Goff has show steady improvement since the trade, which culminated in a win over his former club Sunday and Detroit's first playoff win since 1992. Goff and the Lions will now prepare to host the divisional round of the NFL playoffs next Sunday.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: QBs to Start

    My only concern with Goff is that the Lions decide to pull him off the field at some point. Detroit still has the chance for the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and Dan Campbell said the Lions would play their starters as normal. But if Campbell finds out the Cowboys are well ahead of the Commanders then Goff could get benched. Hopefully, before that possible scenario, Goff has destroyed the Vikings. He didn't have a great Fantasy outing at Minnesota in Week 16 with just 16.3 Fantasy points, but now he's at home. Goff has scored at least 20 Fantasy points in five of seven games in Detroit, and two of the past three quarterbacks against Minnesota have scored at least 22.9 Fantasy points. Goff could be a top-five Fantasy quarterback in Week 18.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Throws two interceptions in loss

    Goff completed 19 of 34 passes for 271 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the Lions' 20-19 loss to the Cowboys on Saturday. As his final line implies, Goff had an inconsistent night that saw him hit on some sizable completions but also make his fair share of poor or inaccurate throws. On the bright side, Goff recorded completions of 23, 25 and 63 yards to Amon-Ra St. Brown, Sam LaPorta and Jameson Williams, respectively. He was also able to lead a last-minute drive that culminated in an 11-yard touchdown pass to St. Brown that put the Lions within a point before a go-ahead two-point conversion pass to offensive lineman Taylor Decker was nullified by penalty. On the other hand, Goff's first interception came in Cowboys territory, while the second one unfolded on the Lions' 26-yard line with 2:05 remaining and led to what would prove to be a game-winning field goal for Dallas. Goff did extend his touchdown streak to nine games, but he's now thrown four picks over the last three contests. Goff and the Lions close out the regular season against the Vikings at home Jan. 7.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Secures division title

    Goff completed 30 of 40 pass attempts for 257 yards with one touchdown during Sunday's 30-24 win over the Vikings. Handling Minnesota's blitz-heavy defense without many problems, Goff completed 75 percent of his passes and could have had a much bigger game had Detroit not pounded in three touchdowns via rushing plays. Nonetheless, Goff has helped Detroit secure a division title for the first time in 30 years and notch the team's first since the division was remapped from the NFC Central to the NFC North in 2002. The Lions now aim to fight for playoff positioning starting with an important Week 17 showdown against Dallas.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: QBs to Start

    Jake Browning ended the Vikings eight-game streak of holding quarterbacks under 20 Fantasy points when he scored 22.9 points in Week 15. I expect Goff to have over 20 Fantasy points against Minnesota as well in Week 16, even though he's on the road. Goff has actually scored at least 20.3 Fantasy points in two of his past three road games, with both quality outings coming indoors (at the Chargers in Week 10 and at New Orleans in Week 13), and he has a great history against the Vikings with at least 25 Fantasy points in three of his past five meetings. This is a different defense that he's facing under coordinator Brian Flores, but I like Goff in this matchup since his offensive line is healthy after center Frank Ragnow was back in Week 15 against Denver when Goff scored 41.1 Fantasy points. That ended Denver's streak of not allowing a quarterback to score more than 20 Fantasy points in nine games in a row.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Lights up Broncos for five TDs

    Goff completed 24 of 34 passes for 278 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 42-17 win over the Broncos. Goff entered the game in something of a slump, as he had multiple turnovers in three of his last four matchups, with the Lions going only 2-2 in that span. Those concerns ended in spectacular fashion, as he matched his career high with five touchdown passes in a game and also didn't turn the ball over. Goff's scores came primarily from short range -- his longest was 19 yards -- but he still completed seven passes of at least 20 yards, good for a season high. While this was an impressive performance, Goff's career has been marked by inefficiency, so there's no guarantee he'll come close to matching this effort in Week 16 against the Vikings.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Goff's track record is that he struggles to play well when he's pressured. Not only has Chicago's pass rush become better with Montez Sweat in the fold (36.4% pass rush pressure rate since his arrival compared to 27.8% before he got there), but the Lions offensive line is down two starters this week with a third starter playing through injury, and they're all part of the interior. Tack on his extensive history of struggling on the road (under 20 Fantasy points in 12 of his past 18 road games) and Goff carries some serious risk. It does not help that the Bears have held 6 of their past 7 opposing passers to under 20 Fantasy points, nor does it help that there could be some wind issues that could plague both teams. I'd reluctantly start Goff over C.J. Stroud and Baker Mayfield but I'd start Jordan Love and Josh Dobbs over him.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: QBs to Sit

    Goff is more of a bust alert than a must-sit option since he's scored at least 20.3 Fantasy points in three of his past four games. The one game where he failed to top 20 Fantasy points was Week 11 against Chicago, who held him to 17.7 points with three interceptions. The Bears now have seven interceptions in their past two games and have kept three quarterbacks in a row (Bryce Young, Goff and Joshua Dobbs) to fewer than 18 Fantasy points. Goff has also scored 16 Fantasy points or fewer in three of four outdoor games this season.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: QBs to Start

    Goff stumbled his way into 22.2 Fantasy points in Week 12 against the Packers on Thanksgiving. The positive was 332 passing yards and two touchdowns. The negative was three lost fumbles in a 29-22 defeat, but I expect him to perform better in Week 13 at New Orleans. He's been better on the road of late with at least 25.1 Fantasy points in two of his past three away games, and the Saints have some key injuries on defense with pass rusher Cam Jordan (ankle) potentially out and cornerback Marshon Lattimore (ankle) on injured reserve.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Doomed by three fumbles

    Goff completed 29 of 44 passes for 332 yards with two touchdowns while adding nine rushing yards on three carries with three lost fumbles during Thursday's 29-22 loss to the Packers. He also completed a pass for a two-point conversion. Entering the contest sitting fifth in passing yards per game (274.3), Goff put together another respectable outing from a statistical perspective while recording his third straight game with multiple passing touchdowns. However, an onslaught of miscues proved too much to overcome for the NFC North leaders, as Goff took three sacks, went 1-for-6 on fourth down, and fumbled three times -- one of which was returned by Green Bay for a touchdown in a one-score game. The entire offense will look for a bounce-back effort during a Week 13 matchup on the road against the Saints.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Overcomes three INTs in Week 11 win

    Goff completed 23 of 35 passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Bears. He added three yards on two rushing attempts. Goff was picked off on Detroit's first two drives, but the Lions got into the end zone on their next two possessions, the latter of which was capped with a seven-yard Goff touchdown pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown to put Detroit ahead 14-10. After throwing a third interception in the third quarter, Goff helped the Lions score the final 17 points of the fourth to pull out the win and improve to 8-2. Goff will look to clean up the turnovers at home against the Packers on Thanksgiving.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: QBs to Start

    Goff had a rare stellar road game in Week 10 at the Chargers with 25.1 Fantasy points, and it might just be time to start him every week, no matter where he plays. At home, he's been a Fantasy star with an average of 24.3 Fantasy points per game in four outings, and I expect him to thrive against the Bears, who allow an average of 21.5 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. In two home games against Chicago as a member of the Lions, Goff is averaging 22.6 Fantasy points, and he has top-five upside in Week 11 based on how he's playing this season.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Tops 300 yards against Bolts

    Goff completed 23 of 33 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 41-38 win over the Chargers. The Lions scored three rushing TDs in the first half, but Goff opened things up after halftime, hitting Amon-Ra St. Brown for a 20-yard score in the third quarter and Brock Wright for a 25-yard touchdown midway through the fourth. It's the first time Goff has tossed multiple scores since Week 6, but the 29-year-old QB is now on pace for a new career high in passing yards with 2,507 through nine games. He could be poised for another big performance Week 11 at home against the Bears.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    It sounds a little silly but there's a chance the Lions aren't able to just coast to victory on the strength of their run game. There's a greater chance of this game becoming a high-scoring shootout which would mean better numbers for Goff. Both would be amazing. But the track record of capable quarterbacks against the Chargers sold me on Goff as a must-start Fantasy QB with more upside than anybody this week EXCEPT Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott, Lamar Jackson and Justin Herbert.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    This is a step-up in competition both for the Ravens and for Goff. It's hard to imagine the Lions run game clicking at Baltimore, so expect volume for Goff, which doesn't guarantee great stats but it certainly doesn't hurt. It does feel like the Lions are due for a let-down game and this spot feels like it. I'll cautiously start Goff over Derek Carr and Brock Purdy but I would chance it with Jordan Love over him. I'd start him over Kirk Cousins, Dak Prescott and Trevor Lawrence.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: QBs to Start

    Road Goff showed up again in Week 7 at Baltimore when he scored a season-low 9.4 Fantasy points, and he has now scored 16.0 points or less in three of four games away from Detroit this year. By comparison, Goff has scored at least 20.0 Fantasy points in all three home games, and he's averaging 27.4 points in Detroit. The Raiders have been great against opposing quarterbacks for the past three weeks, holding Jordan Love, Mac Jones and Tyson Bagent to 14.5 Fantasy points or less. But this is a step up in competition, and Goff should be fine in his own surroundings once again. I like Goff as a top-10 Fantasy quarterback in Week 8.
