Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Goff has apparently gotten worse as a deep passer. He threw a career-low 7.5% of his attempts into that range (20+ yards downfield) in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. Even so, Goff posted:
    • His worst deep-passing grade to date
    • His worst adjusted completion rate deep since his rookie campaign
    • His 2nd-worst deep-ball passer rating, ahead of only his 2019 mark
  • Among 41 QBs with 15+ deep attempts last year, Goff ranked 31st in adjusted completion rate, 32nd in passer rating and 35th in passing grade.
  • Goff has fared much better in the intermediate range (10-19 yards downfield). He ranked 16th in passing grade to that level in 2020, 9th in 2019, 12th in 2018 and 24th in 2017.
  • Success in the deeper ranges matter because they beef up the QB’s fantasy scoring. Goff has topped 20 fantasy points per game twice in his career: the 2 seasons in which he topped 90.0 in PFF deep-passing grade and 95.0 in passer rating on deep balls.
  • Those 2 seasons also found the largest percentage of Goff’s attempts flying to the deep range: 11.5% and 11.2%. Each of those beat his 2020 deep share by at least 3.7 percentage points.
  • Goff leaves a Rams offense with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp as the lead WRs -- plus Brandin Cooks and Sammy Watkins in previous seasons -- for a Lions offense with a shrug emoji currently topping the WR depth chart.
  • Detroit let Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola walk this offseason. The Lions signed Tyrell Williams and Breshad Perriman in free agency and drafted Amon-Ra St. Brown in Round 4.
  • Quintez Cephus is the top returning producer at the position, with his 35 targets and 20-349-2 receiving line in 2020.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Goff seemed to be coming along a couple of years ago, which is why the Rams gave him a then-record extension in September 2019. Less than 2 years later, they paid Detroit a 1st-round pick to take on his contract, in exchange for a 33-year-old Matthew Stafford. If Goff has any real-life rebound potential or fantasy appeal, we’ll need to see it before buying in. An unexciting player lands in what looks like 1 of the league’s worst offensive situations -- especially at wideout. Pass in all formats.

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. QB Tim Boyle will make his 3rd start of the season. He was decent enough last week to trust WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Lions HC Dan Campbell called QB Jared Goff (knee) "doubtful" to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. That figures to mean another start for QB Tim Boyle, who was at least good enough to feed WR Amon-Ra St. Brown 9 catches on 11 targets for 91 yards and a score last week. St. Brown remains a solid Week 17 fantasy play.
