QB - DET - Questionable
Week 12 Outlook
Lions QB Jared Goff completed 21 of 25 passes for 171 yards with two touchdowns and a lost fumble during Thursday's 16-14 loss to Chicago.
After returning from an oblique injury, Goff looked up and down during his Thanksgiving start. The first quarter Goff and former Ram Josh Reynolds connected on a deep touchdown drive. For the remainder of the game, Goff and the Lions looked miserable as the passer threw for just 171 yards total, his second time on the year failing to hit 200 yards. The Lions should be Thankful on Thanksgiving to potentially have a new QB next year so they don't continue to watch Goff's miserable play. Note, he extended his streak of not winning a game in his career so far without Sean McVay.
Lions quarterback Jared Goff (oblique) is officially active for Thursday’s game against the Bears. He’ll start under center.
Goff ultimately missed just one game. Through nine contests this season, he has gone 220-for-333 with 2,109 passing yards, eight touchdowns, and six interceptions. The 27-year-old remains in the QB3 territory as the Lions still search for their first win of the season.
Lions quarterback Jared Goff (oblique) is in line to return and start for the Lions against the Chicago Bears Thursday barring any pregame setbacks
Goff has been extremely disappointing this season for the rebuilding Lions. Goff is averaging just 6.3 yards per pass attempt along with just eight touchdowns and six interceptions in nine games this season. There is no reason to trust Goff at all going forward, especially with teams adjusting their game plans to eliminate the only downfield weapon he has in tight end TJ Hockenson. Avoid Goff at all costs.
Lions quarterback Jared Goff (oblique) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears.
Goff's status remains up in the air, but there has been optimism all week that he'll be able to start. Assuming he does suit up for this Thanksgiving Day contest, Goff would fall into the mid-range QB3 territory. If he can't play, Tim Boyle would get the nod in his place. Neither are worth starting in fantasy leagues this week.
Lions coach says Jared Goff (oblique) is "leaning towards" being the starting quarterback in Week 12 against the Bears.
Goff didn't play in Week 11 and backup Tim Boyle was a downright disaster for Detroit's offense. Goff wouldn't be a recommended fantasy option on Thanksgiving day. Andy Dalton has already been confirmed as the Bears' starter for this one.
