Jared Goff Week 3 Outlook - Rams at Bills

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Mon, Sep 21st 2020, 12:16pm EDT

He's benefited from his receivers after the catch, as they lead the league with 10.1 yards after the catch. Goff's average depth of throw is an NFL-low 4.0 yards down the field. That has dropped his sack rate down to just 6.1 percent, as Sean McVay clearly wants to get the ball out quickly. The Bills haven't gotten as much pressure early in the year, as they've produced a sack on just 6.8 percent of dropbacks, which is a slight step back from last year, but it's even worse when you consider they played against the Jets and Dolphins offensive lines, which are both brand-new units. Goff has been pressured on just 28.1 percent of his dropbacks, which is much better than the 36.0 percent he was last year. We can't pretend this is a good matchup, though, as the Bills have allowed just 6.24 yards per attempt since the start of last year. Going through those 18 games, there have been just four quarterbacks who've thrown more than one touchdown pass, and just three quarterbacks who've thrown for more than 282 yards. Goff snuck away with a decent game last week, but I'm not betting on him finishing as a top-18 option in Week 3.
