  Rams | Jared Goff on shaky ground in LA?    Tue Jan 19, 01:35 AM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff's recent inconsistent play has left his status as the starting quarterback for the 2021 season in the air and may lead the team to bring in someone who can push him, according to comments made by the NFL Network's Steve Wyche.'The people I've spoken to said basically at this moment the relationship with Goff and (head coach Sean) McVay: not great. They need marriage counseling is what one person said to me. I think this is something that they're going to be able to work through, but there's got to be some healing and that's not just with Jared Goff's injured thumb,' Wyche said.

Footballguys view: Goff and McVay need an offseason like Packers head coach Matt LaFleur and QB Aaron Rodgers had last year. LeFleur and Rodgers did not look to be on the same page at times in 2019, and in 2020 they went out and secured the no.1 seed in the NFC and now sit one game away from the Super Bowl. Goff is no Rodgers, but he fought through injury in the playoffs and didn't look as bad as some had feared. We'll see if things can smooth over with some time away before offseason work starts later in the spring.

  Rams | Jared Goff to start playoff game    Thu Jan 14, 02:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) will start Saturday, Jan. 16, in the divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, Rams head coach Sean McVay said Thursday. Blake Bortles will serve as the backup.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Goff was able to come off the bench in the Wild Card Round and lead the Rams to victory over Seattle even though he's not 100 percent healthy. Expect the Rams to limit their passing game and try to hit the Packers with RB Cam Akers early and often if they can.

  Rams | Jared Goff, John Wolford should be fine    Sun Jan 10, 04:50 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) and QB John Wolford (neck) are expected to be fine for the Divisional Round playoff game, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Goff came in for an injured Wolford and helped the Rams to the victory over Seattle in the Wild Card Round. His thumb was clearly bothering him but he came through as a game manager of the offense.

Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford will be the starting quarterback for the Wild Card playoff game with QB Jared Goff (thumb) being the backup quarterback, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Wolford looked serviceable last week and provides more of a rushing threat than Goff does. The Rams should run the ball and set up the short-to-intermediate passing game.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) hasn't been ruled out for the playoff game Saturday, Jan. 9, but it's going to be challenging to return 12 days after thumb surgery.

Footballguys view: The Rams were originally optimistic that Goff would be able to go in the Wild Card Round after missing Week 17. John Wolford would get another start if Goff can't go on Saturday. It will be 12 days since his surgery when the Rams play the Seahawks and we'll know more about Goff's status later in the week.

  Rams | John Wolford leads L.A. to playoffs    Sun Jan 3, 07:43 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB John Wolford started for the injured QB Jared Goff (thumb) in a must-win game in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals, and he helped his team to an 18-7 win and playoff berth. He also led the team with 56 rushing yards, while RB Cam Akers was mostly bottled up with 21 carries and just 34 yards while adding four grabs for 52 yards. WR Van Jefferson went for four grabs and 50 yards on eight targets, while TE Tyler Higbee chipped in with three grabs and 41 yards on four targets. WR Robert Woods ended with four receptions and 36 yards, WR Josh Reynolds had four catches and 29 yards and TE Gerald Everett wrapped up the season with two catches and 25 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Wolford was a weapon as a runner and adequate as a passer. The Rams made the playoffs with the win and should have a shot to win even if Wolford has to start next week.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 16 of 25 passes for 137 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Dec. 10. He also ran four times for 11 yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Goff wasn't the centerpiece of the offensive gameplan and the Patriots took away or limited a lot of the bread and butter passing plays in the Rams offense so it wasn't a strong fantasy performance for him. He'll be a strong QB1 next week when the Jets come to town.

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 21-of-30 passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 5 against the Washington Football Team. He also had a rushing score.

Footballguys view: Goff crushed a bad NFC East defense for the second time this year. He was also strong in a furious comeback second half against the Bills, but might not be trustworthy against solid defenses. The 49ers don't look like one right now, but the Rams haven't faced enough good competition to completely trust Goff next week.

Footballguys view: Goff was down 28-3 and looking ineffective against the Bills and then came alive for a huge second half, but he'd probably rather have the win. He'll face an easy Giants defense next week and should be considered a top streamer and DFS play.

  Rams | Jared Goff challenged    Tue Jun 23, 10:07 AM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff needs to take ownership of the offense, according to offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell.

Footballguys view: The new offensive coordinator is sending a bit of message here that Goff needs to improve, but the offense functioned a lot better in December once they got past the tough defenses on their schedule, and the offensive line could be better this year. Goff is only a matchup play in typical one quarterback leagues. He could be a value in two quarterback/superflex leagues.

  Rams | Jared Goff struggles past first read    Tue Jun 16, 03:24 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff had the lowest Pro Football Focus in the NFL last season when forced to look past his first read. He has a top-10 PFF grade on first-read throws over the last two seasons.

Footballguys view: That's a pretty telling stat for Goff...and it backs up the film. If he's on time and on rhythm with the first read, then Goff can be pretty efficient. However, when he's forced to go away from his initial read then the young quarterback still struggles. He put the ball in the air 626 times in 2019 but was not an efficient passer. From a fantasy perspective, Goff is a QB2 with upside.

Footballguys view: Another quarterback working with his receivers here. Insert the standard 'this should help chemistry' take. However, with Goff there needs to be improvement off a down season in 2019. He threw the heck out of the ball but was not an efficient passer. Goff is a QB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs.

  Rams | Jared Goff kept clean last season    Sun May 24, 05:11 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff was sacked on only 3.3 percent of his 662 dropbacks in 2019 - the second-lowest mark for a quarterback with at least 615 dropbacks in a season since 2015.

Footballguys view: Goff needs to do a better job with so little pressure getting home. He threw 10 fewer touchdowns in 2019 than he did in 2018 and he threw more interceptions last year than the previous season. The team is going to be a volume-based passing attack again this year and a more efficient/improved Goff would help them greatly.

  Rams | Jared Goff an oddity in today's game    Sun May 17, 05:34 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff (68) was the only NFL quarterback in 2019 to attempt more than 50 passes on seven-step drops in 2019, according to USA TODAY's Doug Farrar.

Footballguys view: That's not something that happens much anymore. It used to be a staple in the NFL, but seven-step drops take time to develop and pass-rushers are getting too good in the NFL. The Rams use a West Coast system and that leans on running the ball effectively. If you can do that, those seven-step drops could be more fruitful.

  Rams | Jared Goff struggled on play action    Thu May 14, 07:27 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff was the least efficient passer in the league on play-action attempts in 2019, but he attempted more play-action throws than any other QB.

Footballguys view: Goff has to be better on play-action passes. In the Sean McVay system, utilizing play-action passes helps get receivers open downfield for big plays -- field-flipping plays at times. The Rams need to make sure to run the ball effectively which helps on the run fake when the team wants to execute a play-action pass.
