Lost in the amazing MVP-type performance of Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley in 2017 was the just as impressive breakout performance of sophomore quarterback Jared Goff. After a rookie campaign the previous year that was quite ugly/disturbing, the 2016 number 1 overall pick took right to new head coach Sean McVay's offense and never looked back in throwing for 3,804 yards, 28 TD's, and just 7 INT's. Now while Goff was purely just a stationary pocket passer (only 28 rushing yards), he gets a big plus for keeping the turnovers under control. By now it is also obvious that McVay is one of the brightest offensive minds in the game despite still being in his 30's and so Goff will do nothing but benefit further from the numbers-friendly scheme. That is a big plus in terms of Goff's fantasy football outlook; not to mention the fact he is not getting as much respect as he should when it comes to pundits discussing the top player at the position for summer drafts. That means Goff is a major target for those who choose to wait on drafting their quarterback and he almost reminds us of what the always underpriced Tony Romo was back in his Dallas Cowboys heyday. Goff can certainly be the new Romo in terms of supplying 30 TD's and 4,000 yards without the cost of a pick in the first two rounds of the draft and we fully sign off here in terms of being big boosters of the guy for the upcoming season.
