What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
Let’s not make this complicated. The eye test and the numbers say Stafford should be an upgrade over Jared Goff for the Rams. And Goff finished as a top 12 fantasy QB in 3 of the last 4 seasons.
Barring injury or serious decline, Stafford is a good bet for lower-end QB1 numbers in 2021. His lack of rushing production will make it tough for him to climb into the top half of QB1 territory.
