Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Starting to buy into the high passing volume for Goff this year. Up slightly. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's been a weird ride for Goff in the NFL, as he went from someone who was left for dead, only to be revived by Sean McVay. His weekly performances have been relatively similar every year, despite contrary belief. He's posted top-12-type numbers in 43.8 percent of his games in each of the last two years, while hitting that mark 46.7 percent of the time in 2017. The issue in 2019 was the lack of upside, as he didn't have a single game with more than 25.2 fantasy points. He passed that mark five different times in 2018. Does the loss of Todd Gurley as a safety valve hurt his overall potential? Losing Brandin Cooks surely can't help, either. Goff is one of those quarterbacks you can take in the later rounds and hope he gets some of that upside back, because otherwise, he's just a boring streamer.Going to a new team is always tough on a quarterback, but it surely helps that Rivers has played in Frank Reich's offensive system before. Back in 2014-2015, Rivers threw for 9,078 yards, 60 touchdowns, and 31 interceptions over those two seasons. The offensive line in Indianapolis is the best Rivers has ever played behind, and his receiver corps of T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell, and Michael Pittman isn't too shabby, either. He may be towards the end of his career, but he's going to have plenty of fantasy-worthy performances for streamers.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
After a stellar 2018 season, Goff failed to meet lofty expectations in 2019 throwing only 22 TDs and 16 INTs. With Brandin Cooks now in Houston, Goff will rely on Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods to get him back on track.Seeing Rivers in a different uniform will be strange but I don't see his fantasy production to change all that much. He has a solid WR1 in T.Y. Hilton and a trusty TE in Jack Doyle. He'll have his big games but will also give you the occasional turnover-fest. I like more reliability at QB, he doesn't need to be drafted in 1 QB leagues.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Goff was looking like a fantastic dynasty QB just a few seasons ago, but he may be nothing more than a streaming QB in plus matchups at this point.It's highly unlikely that we see Rivers enter into the streaming QB conversation at all this season. With Rivers' high interception totals from last season, plus his inability to pick up yards on the ground, he's unlikely to ever finish within the top-12 QBs in a given week.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Jared Goff had 16 interceptions last season. He had 20 more interceptions dropped. Goff took a big step back in 2019 in terms of efficiency but volume was no issue as he threw it over 600 times last year. Goff had 11 TDs and a 2.6% TD rate through the first 12 weeks in 2019. 11 TDs and a 5.1% TD rate in the last 5. @willson8torSolid upgrade over Brissett, +4.6% Accurate & Frame throws, -3.4% Uncatchable rate.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jared Goff had another frustrating season for fantasy owners, with a failure to top 2 TD passes in a single fantasy week last season. This included four weeks where Goff couldn't even top 6 fantasy points. He does have very real upside though. With Gurley gone and a defence which has had some major issues at times, there's a good chance this offence has top-end passing volume. The truly elite ceiling is lacking though and caution is warranted if you're expected weekly consistency or a strong ceiling from the Rams QB.Philip Rivers is a really tough one to rank in 2020. While I like the idea of him playing behind an elite O-line, I don't think this offence will have enough passing volume to make him a viable weekly fantasy option. He's a nice, safe streamer/bye week cover/superflex option but in Indy, I don't see him managing much else.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 IND just came off a season with the 3rd fewest passing yards in the league, with 3108. And not for lack of trying. Phil has thrown for 4000 3 times with fewer ATT than what Indy had last year
