Basic StatsJared Goff's Preseason Player Analysis

View QB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Goff's first season with the Lions turned up six top-14 fantasy weeks. He maxed out as the QB6 (vs. Minnesota).
  • He tossed 0 TDs in 5 outings, hurt by a Lions offense that lacked depth and reliable pass volume. Goff tossed 30 or fewer passes 5 times.
  • Goff played through an oblique injury in Week 10, forcing 1 absence. He missed Week 16 on the COVID list and Week 17 with a knee injury.
  • T.J. Hockenson and D’Andre Swift also combined to miss 9 games.
  • Goff’s play did improve down the stretch, right alongside the emergence of Amon-Ra St. Brown. Goff hit 2+ TD passes in 4 of his final games. He completed 69.6% of his passes over that stretch.
  • Per Pro Football Reference, Goff ranked 26th among 33 qualifiers in net yards per attempt. He sat 22nd in TD rate; 12th in completion rate.
  • The latter mark isn’t too surprising considering his 6.4-yard average depth of target. That set a career low and ranked last in the above sample.
  • Following seasons with 2, 2 and 4 rushing scores, Goff posted 0 rushing TDs in ’21.
  • The ’22 Lions let OC Anthony Lynn walk. New OC Ben Johnson takes over after serving as the team’s TE coach. It’s not yet clear if Johnson or HC Dan Campbell will call plays.
  • St. Brown talked up Johnson’s role in OTAs. Note that Johnson assumed the role of pass-game coordinator in the middle of last season. “I think Ben stepping in halfway through the season really helped us as an offense with the pass game. I love him,” St. Brown said. “I think he’s one of the better coaches I’ve ever been around, and I’m super excited for him to be the offensive coordinator.”
  • The Lions added free agent WR D.J. Chark as a vertical field stretcher. However, he missed most of 2021 with an ankle fracture.
  • Detroit used a Round 1 pick on Alabama speedster Jameson Williams. Coming off a December ACL tear, though, he’s no better than 50/50 to play Week 1.
  • Led by OTs Taylor Decker and Penei Swell, Goff’s O-line at least profiles as an asset.
  • Per Lions beat writer Kyle Meinke, “the table is set for [Jared] Goff to improve dramatically this season.” Goff might enter the spot-start radar for fantasy, but a lack of rushing upside makes him a clear QB2 for season-long projecting.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Last year, Goff showed flashes of why he was the top pick back in 2016.

Ultimately, he finished just outside the top-20 in fantasy PPG.

While his supporting cast improved for 2022, Goff’s unlikely to be a go-to streamer this fall.

Jared Goff, QB DET

11:10pm EDT 10/2/22

Goff racks up big numbers

Lions QB Jared Goff tallied 378 yards and 4 TD passes in Sunday's shootout loss to the Seahawks. Detroit trailed by 15+ at 3 different points but rebounded to make it a 48-45 final. Goff found TE T.J. Hockenson for a pair of scores and hit WR Josh Reynolds and RB Justin Jackson with the 2 others. Goff'ffs Week 5 meeting with the Patriots figures to be less favorable. Then comes a Week 6 bye.

The Lions have ruled WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. And that's not the only injury at play in this pass-catching corps. TE T.J. Hockenson (foot), WR D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (ankle) are also dealing with injuries that have cost them practice time this week. Khalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus sit behind that group if any others wind up inactive. HC Dan Campbell also said Friday that RB D'Andre Swift is "probably out" for the game. We'll update official statuses for others as they come out.

View all Amon-Ra St. Brown Shark Bites »

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown racked up 9 catches for 116 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Commanders. That marked the 8th straight game in which he secured at least 8 receptions, matching the record held by Michael Thomas and Antonio Brown. In Sunday's game, St. Brown tallied 5 more targets than any other Lion, garnering 35.3% of QB Jared Goff's pass attempts. TE T.J. Hockenson ranked 2nd, with 7 targets, but caught only 3 for 26 yards. Josh Reynolds and D'Andre Swift caught the other 2 of Goff's 4 TD passes in the game. St. Brown is so far vindicating anyone who drafted him this summer.

Lions QB Jared Goff spoke glowingly on 2nd-year WR Amon-Ra St. Brown. "I'm looking for him when things break down, and I'm looking for him when we need a play," Goff said. "Right now, he's that guy. He can take a sweep to the house. At the same time, he understands defense and coverage, and it's so rare for a young player to have that ability. He keeps asking the right questions and understanding what's going on over there. He's going [up]." St. Brown’s ADP has dropped since early in draft season. As the WR32 in FFPC Main Event drafting, he’s now coming at a reasonable price.

Per Lions beat writer Kyle Meinke, “the table is set for [Jared] Goff to improve dramatically this season.” As Meinke points out, Goff improved down the stretch last year when OC Ben Johnson took over the offense. This unit is suddenly deep at pass catcher, too, although the health of Jameson Williams (ACL) will be key. Goff might enter the spot-start radar for fantasy, but a lack of rushing upside makes him a clear QB2 for season-long projecting.

Detroit added no competition this offseason, so Goff will enter Week 1 as the Lions' starter. His odds of playing well and holding that job longer term were boosted with the additions of WRs Jameson Williams and D.J. Chark. Detroit's offensive line also looks strong.
