5 Detroit Lions who could be sneaky fantasy football options this year
1. QB Jared Goff
Goff looks more in command and confident in this training camp, and it seems sure to yield far better results. Better talent around him, and a good connection with offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, will only help too.
Interrupted by a positive COVID test and a knee injury that cost him a total of three games, Goff posted a 107.1 passer rating over his final five starts last year (11 touchdowns, two interceptions). For the season as a whole, Goff finished as at least a QB2 (top-24) in nine of his 14 starts and from Week 12-15 he was a top-10 fantasy signal caller by total points.
Goff could push toward being a viable fantasy QB1 again, with an ADP (via Fantasy Pros) in QB3 range (QB28) and unlikely to move much. The more concrete middle ground is a top-15-20 finish among quarterbacks, with streaming appeal in the right matchups. And even that middle is better than many people think he can be, making him a sneaky, and low-risk, potential fantasy producer.
