Jared Goff was one of my favorite QB streamers for Week 1 as I expected the Cowboys and Rams to play a fast-paced, back-and-forth shootout. That didn't quite happen at all, and Goff didn't look good at all against what should have been a beatable secondary. The Eagles boast Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman at corner, and while I love the Rams' weapons, their lack of depth is an issue. Goff is a fine QB2 in this game but I don't love this matchup on the road for him.

Goff struggled in Week 1 against Dallas, and though he gets an easier task in Philly for Week 2, Goff has a couple things working against him. The team's reliance on the run game seems to be renewed in the post-Todd Gurley era, and Goff has notoriously performed more poorly on the road than at home throughout his career. He's more of a QB2 this week.

We talked last week about Goff's splits against good/bad pass defenses. In case you missed it, here are the teams he had his biggest games against in 2019: The Cardinals twice (32nd), Falcons (25th), Bengals (27th), and Bucs (23rd). The Cowboys ranked 13th and he walked away from that game with 275 yards and no touchdowns. The Eagles ranked 14th last year, and then just acquired cornerbacks Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman this offseason. Sure, the Eagles lost last week, but it wasn't due to their pass defense that allowed just 178 yards. The Eagles bring the pressure with their front seven, too. They sacked Haskins on 8.8 percent of his dropbacks last week, which ranked as the fifth-highest mark in Week 1. Keep in mind they didn't have Derek Barnett off the edge or Javon Hargrave on the interior. Barnett is expected to play this week, while Hargrave is still a question mark. But bottom line is that this pass defense isn't a cakewalk, which is where Goff does well. Because of that, he's not a recommended streamer. Here's a crazy stat on Goff: Since that shootout game on Monday night against the Chiefs in 2018, he's thrown just 28 touchdowns in 22 games on 841 pass attempts (3.3 percent). Wait for the bad defenses to roll in before trusting him.
