After throwing just 10 touchdowns in his previous seven games, Goff goes off and throws for 376 yards and three touchdowns against a Bucs defense that was one of the best in the league coming into that game. Goff has now thrown for 300-plus yards in three straight games, though the matchup in Week 12 is a rematch of the game he threw for a season-low 198 yards back in Week 6. The 49ers pass defense isn't the one it used to be, but it's worth noting that just two quarterbacks have averaged more than 7.05 yards per attempt against them this year. There have been five quarterbacks who've finished top-12 against them, but two of them did solely because of their rushing totals, something we don't get out of Goff. Since the start of last year, Goff has played them three times, completing just 59-of-108 attempts (54.6 percent) for 599 yards (5.55 yards per attempt) with four touchdowns and two interceptions. The 49ers have seen just 31.4 pass attempts per game against them, so volume seems to be out of the question, too. The 219.6 passing yards per game they've allowed ranks as the second-fewest to only Washington. I wouldn't be pushing my luck with Goff this week.

Jared Goff tosses three touchdowns in primetime victory

Jared Goff completed 39-of-51 passes for 376 yards to go along with three touchdowns and two interceptions during the Rams' 27-24 win over the Buccaneers in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact

Goff was nearly flawless on Monday outside of two errant passes that went for interceptions. He connected with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp 23 total times and seemed to find open receivers throughout the night. Despite the Rams moving towards a run-heavy game plan in recent weeks, this potent passing game will make an appearance every now and again. It's tough to trust Goff on a week-to-week basis as we don't know which version of the offense we will see, but he has decent matchup in Week 12 against the 49ers at home. Goff passed for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns in their previous meeting back in Week 6 and should be considered a low-end QB1 for that matchup.
