Despite scoring 20-plus in three of his final four outings last season, Goff struggled to maintain any consistency and finished with just the 22nd-most Fantasy points per game. The Lions return a very good offensive line and added all kinds of receiver talent, including veteran DJ Chark and rookie first-round pick Jameson Williams, but they still seem to be a run-preferred offense. That hurts the upside for Goff, who has been a disappointing Fantasy quarterback over the course of his career and would be tough to trust in lineups in 2022. Expect him to go undrafted in one-QB leagues and with a pick after Round 8 in Superflex/two-QB formats.
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.
Goff is back as the starting QB in Detroit. The ex-Ram appeared in 14 games last season and was limited to one weekly fantasy finish better than eighth (Week 1) and two others better than 12th. Goff was extremely conservative, as his 6.5 average depth of throw was lowest in the NFL. It's possible that increases with improved targets this season, but that's far from a lock considering he was at 6.4 in his final season with the Rams. Goff is also a non-factor as a rusher, having yet to clear 108 rushing yards in a single season. He's barely on the QB2 radar.
