2018 Fantasy Outlook
Perhaps no player in the league improved as much as Goff last year. After posting the lowest YPA (5.33) in the NFL since 2011 as a rookie, Goff ranked third in the league last season. His completion percentage in 2016, which was 32nd of 33 qualified QBs, shot up by 7.5 percentage points. His passer rating improved by 36.9 points, the second-highest increase from a QB's first to second year in league history. Perhaps most impressive, Goff equaled his interceptions and took one less sack on 272 more attempts. Whether it was a better supporting cast, the arrival of coach Sean McVay or the departure of coach Jeff Fisher (probably all three), Goff went from beyond awful to the Pro Bowl in one year. Goff still has room for improvement, specifically with his deep ball. He attempted only 46 passes longer than 20 yards, ranking 19th, and completed 37 percent (10th). Only three QBs with as many long-distance attempts threw fewer TD passes than Goff's three. Passing-game guru McVay likely will give Goff more opportunities to stretch the field this year, especially after trading for speedster Brandin Cooks, whom the Rams hope will be the No. 1 wide receiver and deep threat that Sammy Watkins failed to be last season. Dependable wideouts Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are back, as is running back Todd Gurley, who will still be the first threat defenses look to counter. The Rams have a more difficult schedule this year, but that's about the extent of the concern with Goff and the offense. Read Past Outlooks

Struggles in Super Bowl loss
QBLos Angeles Rams
February 3, 2019
Goff completed 19 of 38 pass attempts for 229 yards and one interception during Sunday's 13-3 loss to the Patriots.
ANALYSIS
Goff struggled on the big stage, completing just 50 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt. He nearly completed a pair of touchdown passes to Brandin Cooks, only to see Patriots defenders break the play up on both occasions, though arguably Cooks could have made his quarterback look great had he made a tough catch. All in all, it was a disappointing performance for Goff, who played well in a 26-23 victory over the Saints in the NFC Championship Game. He was coming off a breakout regular season in which he totaled 4,688 passing yards to go along with a completion percentage of 64.9 and a 32:12 TD:INT.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The first pick in the 2016 draft, Goff didn't start until Week 11 last season and then looked every bit a rookie. His 54.6 completion percentage ranked 32nd among 33 QBs with at least 200 attempts, and he posted the league's lowest YPA since 2011. Goff didn't get much help from an offense that lacked a No. 1 WR, rarely attempted to go deep and couldn't pass protect -- 26 times for a 60-sack pace and league-high 11.3 percent sack rate. L.A. only modestly improved the line, but the offense will at least change with new coach Sean McVay, who stretched the field with a vertical passing game as Redskins OC the last three years. After adding Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds in the offseason, the Rams finally landed a deep threat in August with the acquisition of Sammy Watkins. With holdover Tavon Austin still around, Goff has a better supporting cast than expected when training camp opened, but it remains to be seen if he can integrate effectively all the options at his disposal.
The Rams paid a steep price to move all the way up to the number one pick in order to ensure they landed Goff, the most NFL-ready quarterback available in this year's draft. It's fair to assume they'll have him under center in Week 1 as they attempt to establish a fanbase in their new/old home. A starter from the moment he arrived on campus at Cal, Goff has grown into an exceptional on-field leader with the size and arm to make every NFL throw. Although not a natural scrambler, he showed good pocket awareness in college and an ability to dodge traffic and keep his balance while waiting for receivers to come open. The big concern for Goff is how quickly he'll adapt from a college spread offense and learn to read defenses, especially while playing with a roster that still lacks a true No. 1 wide receiver. But with Todd Gurley in the backfield and a stout defense, the Rams won't need to lean on him too heavily as a rookie to keep the offense moving. While his ultimate ceiling may be closer to Matt Ryan's, in the short term Goff's production will probably look more like Teddy Bridgewater's.
