I don’t remember ever seeing a QB look so incapable his first year and so quickly turning into a star. Night and day. Much credit to Jeff Fisher who is masterful at disguising greatness.

Has improved in every category year over year since he was drafted 3 years ago. Best wide receivers in the NFL. Good offensive minded head coach. Two solid tight ends. Added a pass

Well, gosh Mike Martz:

Jared Goff completed 32-of-43 passes for 424 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Week 13 blowout win over the Cardinals.

2018 Sean McVay and Goff showed up against the Cardinals' lowly pass defense. It was a clinic of wide open receivers and tight ends, which led Goff to his first 400-yard game of the season without an interception. It's always tough to gauge if an offense actually made improvements or if the Cardinals are just this bad on defense, but we'll chalk this up as a positive first step back to being a competent offense after getting embarrassed at home last week. Goff will have a slightly tougher test against the Seahawks at home next week. He'll be a boom-or-bust QB1/2 then.

Jared Goff completed 22-of-31 passes for 293 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Rams' Week 14 win over Seattle.

Goff started off hot, leading the Rams to scoring drives on three of their first four possessions. Bad Goff showed up in the second half, getting intercepted on consecutive drives, including a pick-six on the opening possession. Goff’s touchdowns were easy red-zone throws to Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. This was far from a perfect game from Goff, but he now has multiple touchdowns passes in back-to-back weeks. The Rams improved to 8-5 and stayed in the Wild Card hunt with the win. Goff will be a high-end QB2 for a matchup with Dallas in Week 15.

The INTs were not bad. The pick-6 was totally on Woods, it was a fine throw under pressure and he simply stopped running the route. The second was a Farveesque third-down semi-punt that left the Seahawks at the four yard line.

Goff looked pretty good.

Horrible, just horrible.  And yes, the o-line is F-level disastrous also.   They need a complete overhaul there and then see if Goff do anything.

He can’t even connect on check downs with Dallas in a prevent.

They have no draft picks and no money with which to do a complete overhaul.

Jared Goff completed 27-of-46 passes for 323 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Rams' Week 16 loss to the 49ers.

Goff found a lot of early-game success on play-action bootleg throws to Tyler Higbee and Robert Woods, but his crucial mistake came back to haunt the Rams. With pressure in his face, Goff threw a soft pass into the flats without realizing LB Fred Warner was breaking on the ball. That led to an easy pick-six, which was the difference in the game. Goff continues to have good spells but just can't completely get out of the way of himself. He'll close out his 2019 season at home against a porous Arizona Cardinals defense. Goff should post big numbers then.

i'm guessing the offense changes significantly in the offseason. Teams figured out how to confuse both McVay and Goff last season. McVay will adjust as best he can. Looking at the personnel, I'd guess more quick passing, shorter routes, and uptempo style that gets the ball out of Goff's hands quicker. He's got sure-handed WRs like Kupp and Wood along with an interesting 1-2 punch at TE that they discovered late in the season. Cooks doesn't seem to fit, which seems to be his thing, and Gurley's departure creates opportunities in the running game.

Rams QB Jared Goff said he's open to restructuring his contract to create short-term cap space for the organization.

"If so, I'm all for it," Goff said on helping the team create cap room. "I don't see why not. It doesn't change anything for me, and it helps the team out." Oddly enough, Goff doesn't have any choice in the matter: Los Angeles has an option written into the 25-year-old's lucrative deal that would allow the organization to move money around freely. Given that he wouldn't take a pay cut in this (or any) scenario, it's all but assured Goff's league-high $36 million cap hit in 2020 is moved around to relieve GM Les Snead's poor understanding of the team's books. As it stands, the Rams are in the red with a league-low -$6.21 million in available cap space.

ESPN's Lindsey Thiry reported the Rams restructured QB Jared Goff's contract.

The details are currently unknown. Goff's current contract is worthy of a deep belly laugh. Seriously, it's absolutely absurd. Goff is due $31 million and $27.5 million in guaranteed salary during the next two seasons before holding a cap number in excess of $30 million from 2022-2024. It remains to be seen if the Rams are serious about riding out the entire deal after Goff regressed in virtually every metric last season. He's demonstrated the ability to function at a high level, but usually needs picture-perfect protection in order to reach his ceiling. The ability to create off-script goodness simply isn't something that Goff is capable of achieving.

Decent start to the year. The interception was on a missed call. Now he just needs some touchdowns and I think he gets some against the Eagles secondary.

Goff has a lot of weapons this season.  He should continue racking up yards and TDs will come.

I was wondering, watching the game, whether McVay does the thing that a lot of college spreads do, which is that there are only one or two actual reads on any given play. It does seem like Goff doesn't go through progressions much, but maybe that's the design.

In any case, the system schemes people open a lot and Goff still has a sweet deep ball and decent placement everywhere.

FMIA Week 2: Let Russ Cook? Wilson Has Ingredients For First MVP Season

Quote

Jared Goff, quarterback, L.A. Rams. What a start, three time zones from home: 12 of 12 for 145 yards and two touchdown passes, leading the Rams to a 21-3 first-half lead at flawed Philadelphia. And for the second straight week, Goff led the Rams to a win over one of the two best teams in the NFC East. He finished with three TD passes, all to tight end Tyler Higbee, and he’s rapidly dispelling doubts about his ability brought on by his 16-pick season last year. Great game for Goff in a tough place to play—made very much easier by the no-fan edict.

Jared Goff completed 23-of-32 passes for 321 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Rams' 35-32, Week 3 loss to the Bills, adding two rushes for four yards and a touchdown. 

Both of Goff's passing scores came on play fakes, while the rushing number was a quarterback sneak. It was Goff's third straight solid performance, though another where he struggled to make plays that weren't set up by play action. The Bills sold out on some second half play fakes, including Goff's touchdown strike to Robert Woods, but weren't able to quite get home on what would have been game-changing plays. Goff has to start making more plays on conventional dropbacks, but for now, the smoke-and-mirrors continues to work. He will be in the low-end QB1 mix for Week 5 against the pathetic Giants.

Jared Goff completed 25-of-32 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 17-9 Week 4 win against the Giants. 

Goff was terrible all day, saving his statistical day with a late 55-yard touchdown to Cooper Kupp. Goff hardly went downfield at all as the Rams ran their usual conservative offense. Goff will have touchdown-driven spike weeks -- good luck guessing when those will be -- but for now, he's an iffy option in 12-team leagues. Goff will be a superflex option next week against Washington.

Jared Goff completed 21-of-30 passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Rams' 30-10 Week 5 win over Washington. 

Goff shredded the Washington secondary on play action throughout the first half. As usual, pass catchers were wide open against the Football Team's leaky coverage unit. Goff was efficient in the Rams' low-volume passing attack a week after struggling against the Giants. He won't be a starting option in 12-team leagues next week against the 49ers.

Jared Goff completed 19-of-38 passes for 198 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Week 6 against the 49ers.

Goff played worse than his stats, throwing a 40-yard fourth quarter touchdown to Josh Reynolds to salvage his night. The Rams got beat in time of possession and Goff only had 38 attempts despite trailing the entire game. Goff's interception came trying to force a pass in the end-zone on fourth-and-goal. Goff is on pace for career highs in completion percentage and passer rating through six weeks. The Rams play Chicago in Week 7.

Jared Goff completed 23-of-33 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' 24-10, Week 7 win over the Bears Monday night.

Goff got the scoring started with a four-yard touchdown strike to Josh Reynolds in the first quarter and then later hit Gerald Everett on an easy pitch-and-catch for a 12-yard score in the third frame. Goff is having a career year in terms of completion rate but has just two 300-yard games in an offense that is one of the most run-heavy units in the sport. Goff has settled in as a weekly QB2 ahead of a Week 8 road date with the Dolphins on a short week.

Jared Goff completed 35-of-61 passes for 355 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Rams' 28-17, Week 8 loss to the Dolphins.

He also lost a pair of fumbles, taking two sacks, and all four of Goff's turnovers came in the first half. This was a truly legendarily bad performance from the third-highest paid player in the NFL. Goff was destroyed by Emmanuel Ogbah on a 78-yard fumble-six on one of the turnovers, and he very easily could have thrown three or four more interceptions that Dolphins defenders flat-out dropped. Eric Rowe should have had a walk-in pick-six in the second half. With the Rams taking a run-heavy approach in 2020, the 61 pass attempts marked Goff's first game of more than 38 attempts this year. The 5-3 Rams obviously prefer to hide their quarterback and will get the bye week to regroup ahead of a Week 10 date with the Seahawks in L.A.

This is a classic Goff spot start. He usually lights up bad defenses and turns into a pumpkin vs any team that can put on pressure or disguise a coverage. Expect a 350/3 type game. I'd start him but paying Rodgers vs. Jax. Good luck to those who use him Sunday. I think you'll be rewarded.

Jared Goff completed 27-of-37 passes for 302 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks.

The Seahawks defense is pacing to set a bunch of records for production allowed and that's exactly what it looked like for Goff and company. Goff wasn't a difference maker in the pocket, but he distributed the ball evenly to his weapons and consistently marched down the field. The yardage was nice, but all three of the touchdowns came on the ground. When everything is clicking, coach Sean McVay wants to lean on the run, limiting Goff's overall fantasy appeal. Things could get trickier if stud LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) is ruled out for the year. Goff facing the blitz-heavy Bucs on the road without his blindspot protector next week smells like trouble. Tread lightly.

Jared Goff completed 19-of-31 passes for 198 yards and two picks in Los Angeles' 23-20 Week 12 loss to San Francisco.

Aaron Donald did his best to offset another poor night from Goff with a forced fumble-six and pass deflection that resulted in an interception, but it wasn't enough to get Los Angeles over the hump on offense. Goff's first interception, which was inevitably intercepted by Richard Sherman, was so far off target that it would have been more challenging to walk over and hand it to Sherman. The 49ers tried to help the Rams build a lead, coughing up two fumbles and an interception mid-game, but Goff never stood a chance in tying Carson Wentz for the most interceptions under pressure (6) this year and failing to get Cooper Kupp involved until the second half. Perhaps Goff and Los Angeles' offense will actually be prepared to clap back in what projects as an uptempo matchup in Week 13 against the Cardinals.
