Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has committed at least two turnovers in each of his last two games, but he's also thrown two touchdowns in each of his last three games. Despite the turnover woes, Goff hasn't finished as lower than QB16 since Week 8. That said, he remains a low-end QB1 fantasy option against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. New Orleans has allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game this year, but the Lions' offense is matchup-proof when it's rolling. He needs a few touchdown tosses to pay off for fantasy managers, but he's proven to be capable of just that for most of the 2023 season

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 29 of 44 passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions during Thursday's loss to the Green Bay Packers. He also took three sacks and lost three fumbles. While Goff salvaged his fantasy performance by delivering strong passing stats, he canceled out some of his key achievements with the three fumbles. He now has six turnovers over his last two games, dropping him to the QB2 tier ahead of next week's clash with the New Orleans Saints.

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff posted three interceptions last week against the Chicago Bears, but he still delivered a decent fantasy performance with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns. However, he'll face a stingier secondary in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have surrendered the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. In the Week 4 matchup with Green Bay, Goff posted just 210 passing yards and one touchdown. The veteran is still likely worth starting due to the upside of his offense, but he could fail to meet expectations in this spot. The Packers have struggled mightily against the run, so there could be a heavy dose of David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs on Thursday afternoon.
Nov 22, 2023 3:30 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 23 of his 35 passing attempts for 236 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the win over the Chicago Bears. The Lions trailed by double-digits in the fourth quarterback, mostly due to Goff's turnover woes. However, the former No. 1 overall pick delivered when it mattered at the end, so he saved his fantasy day with a pair of scores. Next up for the Lions is a Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Goff will have QB1 upside once again in Week 12.
Nov 19, 2023 4:32 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has thrown for at least 272 yards in each of his last four games. In two of those games, he's thrown for at least two touchdowns. In a Week 11 matchup with the Chicago Bears, the veteran signal-caller should be set up for another big week. Chicago has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game this season, and the Lions boast one of the best offenses in the NFL. Goff could disappoint if the Lions simply run the ball down the Bears' throat and put the game away early, but his upside makes him a virtual must-start in this NFC North contest.
Nov 16, 2023 3:11 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 22 of his 33 passing attempts for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions in the Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Lions posted 41 points and had multiple big fantasy performances from its running backs and pass-catchers. Goff is dependent on touchdowns since he doesn't add rushing production, but he has a great chance to find the end zone multiple times per game. Next up for the Lions is a Week 11 matchup with the Chicago Bears. Expect them to put up plenty of points in the NFC North contest.
Nov 12, 2023 7:43 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has been excellent for most of the 2023 season, posting 2,174 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, and five interceptions. Coming off of a bye, the Lions face the Los Angeles Chargers, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. With Detroit's offensive line and skill players all getting healthy at the right time, Goff has a mid-range QB1 upside in this spot. With multiple stud signal-callers on a bye this week, start Goff with confidence.
Nov 9, 2023 7:41 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 26 of his 37 passing attempts for 272 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Week 8 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The veteran signal-caller played well on Monday Night Football, other than throwing a pick-six to Marcus Peters in the third quarter. Goff didn't have a huge fantasy day, but he's still a solid high-end QB2 or low-end QB1 moving forward. However, the Lions are on a bye in Week 9, so fantasy managers will have to find a one-week streamer at QB.
Oct 31, 2023 9:17 AM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff was held without a touchdown last week for the first time all season. However, this Monday Night Football contest against the Las Vegas Raiders could be a bounce-back spot for the Detroit high-powered offense. Even though the Raiders have surrendered the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, the veteran signal-caller has plenty of upside. As long as he can throw at least two touchdowns, he'll likely pay off for fantasy managers against the mediocre overall Raiders team.
Oct 27, 2023 4:18 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 33 of his 53 passing attempts for 284 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the 38-6 Week 7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Goff was sacked five times and fumbled twice as the Baltimore defense smothered the high-powered Lions offense. It was a tough matchup with Baltimore, a defense that came into the week as the No. 1 defense against fantasy quarterbacks. In Week 8, Goff will look to rebound at home against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football. Fantasy managers will surely be disappointed by this effort, but he should still have upside moving forward.
Oct 22, 2023 4:42 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has been spectacular this season, leading the team to a 5-1 record behind 13 total touchdowns to just three interceptions. He is fifth among quarterbacks in total fantasy points heading into Week 7. However, the 29-year-old will face his toughest test of the season against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Through six weeks, Baltimore has surrendered the fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. That said, Baltimore faced CJ Stroud in his first NFL game, then a hobbled Joe Burrow, then Gardner Minshew, Dorian Thompson-Robinson, Kenny Pickett, and Malik Willis. Needless to say, they have faced a weak group of quarterbacks. Based on Goff's body of work this season, he still has upside in Week 7. He just carries a bit more risk. He needs a multi-touchdown game to pay off for fantasy managers since he doesn't add rushing stats, but that is well within his range of outcomes.
Oct 19, 2023 12:41 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 30 of his 44 passing attempts for 353 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 6 road win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The veteran paid off for fantasy managers once again, shredding up a solid defense in the NFC victory. Next up for Goff is a matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, who have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks through six weeks. Despite the tough matchup, Goff clearly has upside in all matchups.
Oct 15, 2023 8:07 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has thrown for 1,265 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions through five games. He's also scored twice on the ground. Even with Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) out last week, he scored four total touchdowns. That said, the veteran signal-caller is not a player to automatically bench when facing tough matchups. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game this season. Its defense limited Kirk Cousins, Justin Fields, and even Jalen Hurts. That said, Goff is riskier this week, but he still offers plenty of upside, especially since St. Brown is trending toward returning. If Goff can find the end zone twice, he will likely be on his way to another QB1 performance. Depending on your quarterback options, he might still be worth starting.
Oct 12, 2023 1:15 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 20 of his 28 passing attempts for 236 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Week 5 win over the Carolina Panthers. He also scored a one-yard rushing touchdown, so he boomed for fantasy managers in Week 5. The veteran signal-caller posted a big showing despite the absence of Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdominal), and he could be on his way to the best fantasy season of his career. Even in single-quarterback formats, he's inching closer to a must-start option.
Oct 8, 2023 4:28 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has thrown for 1,029 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions through four weeks of game action. The 28-year-old is leading one of the best offenses in the NFL, but since he rarely adds rushing stats to his fantasy production, his floor is never truly safe. That said, he's set to face the Carolina Panthers, who have given up 25.5 points per game this season. He needs a multiple-touchdown game to pay dividends for fantasy managers and has a chance to do just that in this NFC matchup. The return of Jameson Williams (suspension) could open up the Detroit passing game vertically moving forward. He is a fringe QB1 for Week 5.
Oct 5, 2023 1:12 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 19 of his 28 passing attempts for 210 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Thursday Night Football victory over the Green Bay Packers. Goff needs a massive yardage total or multiple touchdowns to pay dividends for fantasy managers since he has limited rushing upside, so it was a letdown fantasy performance. However, the team relied on David Montgomery (34 touches) and held a lead for the entire game. When the Lions' are in more pass-happy game scripts, Goff will be back in QB1 contention.
Sep 28, 2023 11:32 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has thrown for 819 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions through three games this year. For what it's worth, he's also rushed for a touchdown. He is the overall fantasy QB10 thus far and has plenty of upside in any matchup due to his high-powered offense. That said, pure pocket passers usually need at least two touchdowns to pay off in fantasy football. Against the Green Bay Packers, who have allowed the 14th-most fantasy points to the position, two touchdowns are well within his range of outcomes. It's worth noting Jaire Alexander (back) could miss this game.
Sep 27, 2023 4:25 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 22 of his 33 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Week 3 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He also rushed for a touchdown, so he delivered a strong fantasy performance once again. The Lions' offense is rolling and will head to Lambeau Field for a bout with the Green Bay Packers in Week 3. Goff will likely carry a high-end QB2 or low-end QB1 outlook into most matchups moving forward.
Sep 24, 2023 5:32 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff threw for 323 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. When the veteran signal-caller plays at home, he is much more efficient and has big-time upside as a passer. In Week 3, the Lions host the Atlanta Falcons, who gave up three passing scores to Jordan Love last week. With David Montgomery (thigh) likely out of action, Detroit could be more inclined to dial up the passing attempts. Although Goff does not possess rushing upside and is reliant on big passing numbers and touchdowns, he's a solid play at quarterback this week and has a low-end QB1 outlook.
Sep 21, 2023 1:38 PM EST
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 28 of his 35 passing attempts for 323 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the 31-37 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Goff was once again efficient and prolific at home, but ultimately snapped his streak of 383 passing attempts without an interception. Still, he paid off in fantasy football. When the former No. 1 overall pick is at home and playing against a suspect defense, he has a high ceiling and can usually be trusted in fantasy lineups.
