Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 17-of-31 passes for 372 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals in London.

Footballguys view: Goff predictably put up big numbers on a helpless Bengals defense. He'll get a bye and has at least established himself as a matchup streamer, although the matchups won't get any better than Cincinnati and Atlanta the last two weeks.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 29 of 49 passes for 395 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, Oct. 3.

Footballguys view: Goff benefitted from another game script that saw his team fall behind early, forcing him to pass about three times more than he handed off. He has been a good fantasy quarterback the last two weeks but hasn't been playing at the level he was at in the first half of 2018. He'll get the 49ers at home next week.

After making a run to the Super Bowl last year, it will be interesting to see how Goff performs this year and during the rest of his prime which this contract covers.

Footballguys view: As long as the two new starters on the offensive line gel, Goff will be set up for his best season yet. He is one of a myriad of values at the quarterback position.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff had his fifth-year rookie option for 2020 exercised Tuesday, April 23.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Rams might be smart to extend Goff soon before salaries get even more out of hand. Perhaps he will take a team-friendly deal to create more team-building flexibility.

  Rams | Jared Goff not worried about contract    Sat Apr 20, 02:54 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff said he is not worried about his contract situation and believes he will receive a lucrative contract if he continues to play well. The Rams are expected to exercise the fifth-year option in Goff's contract this offseason.

Footballguys view: Goff is under the team's control through the 2020 season if/when they pick up his fifth-year option. He'll need to continue to play well if he wants that big money deal. We expect that Goff will get extended at some time but there's no real hurry to get the deal done at this time.

  Rams | Jared Goff extension talks on hold    Tue Mar 26, 04:06 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff's potential contract extension isn't a top priority currently, according to head coach Sean McVay. 'Whether it happens this year, next year, those are things we haven't really gotten into in depth about yet,' McVay said.

Footballguys view: With the fifth-year option, the Rams have Goff under contract through the 2020 season. They don't have a rush to get something done, although one could easily make the argument that the sooner the better (and cheaper).

  Rams | LA to talk extension with Jared Goff?    Wed Feb 6, 02:29 AM

The Los Angeles Rams intend on discussing an extension with QB Jared Goff during the offseason, according to MMQB's Albert Breer, though Breer says the team is not in a hurry to get something done.

Footballguys view: The Rams have Goff's rights through the 2020 season because of the fifth-year option. Goff has a cap number of $8.8 million in 2019, a very affordable rate, but the Rams may want to get him signed sooner rather than later to a long-term deal.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 25-of-40 passes for 297 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the NFC Championship Game overtime win against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Goff had a slow start with a rushed dumpoff to Todd Gurley that Gurley mishandled into an interception, but he calmed down and got his team back into the game with a strong performance after the running game that carried them last week dried up. He'll start his first Super Bowl at 24 years old.

Footballguys view: Goff wasn't clicking in the passing, but the Rams offense was still productive enough to win without a big game from him. He'll face the tough Bears defense next week.

  Rams | Jared Goff to rest on Saturday    Sat Aug 25, 03:06 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: The Rams know what they have in Goff, and given how he played last year they won't risk him if they don't have to. Fantasy GMs don't need to see him either, as we already know he's a solid QB2 with upside due to how improved he was in 2017 as well as a new weapon in the form of Brandin Cooks. His ADP sits at 15 right now, and he's going 106th overall, right in the middle of drafts and about where he should be.

  Rams | Jared Goff uncertain for Saturday    Thu Aug 23, 07:01 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (rest) is uncertain for the team's next preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Texans, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: There's no reason for Goff to play, though more time to acclimate with Brandin Cooks is always good. Goff isn't reliable enough for a QB1 spot, but he's a solid QB2 with upside and his ADP of 15th quarterback off the board is right about where it should be. With the weapons he has, in his second year in this offense, he could outperform it too.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp, Jared Goff gelling    Wed Aug 8, 03:13 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp and QB Jared Goff have connected frequently at training camp and their chemistry is evident. According to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora, Kupp and Goff 'have something special going on.'

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind when considering Kupp for your fantasy team. The second-year pro had a strong rookie season in 2017 with 62 catches for 869 yards and five touchdowns. Projecting him for similar numbers this year is fair and Kupp has plenty of flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in 2018. He's got a current ADP of WR40 (9.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | LA Rams thrived in close quarters last year    Tue Jul 10, 10:49 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff led the charge for the team's offensive breakthrough in 2017, as the Rams used significantly more condensed formations (stacks and bunches). The Rams led the league in passing attempts (286), passing yards (2,328) and passing touchdowns (18) in those formations, per Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: If Goff doesn't get Sean McVay's car washed on a regular basis - or at least take him out for Fatburger or In N Out - he's crazy. McVay's offense fit Goff like a a new set of tires on the 101 freeway. Brandin Cooks is an upgrade over Sammy Watkins and Todd Gurley should build off a year where he really turned a corner. Goff is set up for a nice 2018 and while we aren't calling him out as a QB1 prospect -- and his ADP of 15th quarterback taken doesn't have Fantasy GMs seeing him like that either -- we feel he's going to be a solid backup fantasy quarterback with upside this year.

  Rams | Brandin Cooks fitting in    Fri May 25, 10:43 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks and QB Jared Goff connecting in the passing game has 'become the norm' during OTAs, according to Myles Simmons of TheRams.com.

Footballguys view: Cooks is doing more than fitting in...he's wowing head coach Sean McVay. The speedy veteran should take the top off the defense and be the favorite long target of QB Jared Goff in 2018. He's got a current ADP of WR21 (4.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Jared Goff already throwing to new receiver    Wed Apr 4, 08:02 AM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff has already been throwing with newly acquired WR Brandin Cooks to grow a rapport with him.

Footballguys view: They share an agency and the Rams had been trying to trade for Cooks since last year, so the groundwork was being laid for a while. Cooks could be marginally more successful than Sammy Watkins in the same role, but he probably won't be the most valuable fantasy receiver on the Rams this year.
