Those who started Goff as a streaming option should be breathing a sigh of relief that he finished with what he did in Week 7, as his rushing touchdown late in the game is what sent him into QB1 territory, and not his passing. His 7.24 yards per attempt against the Falcons was the lowest mark they'd allowed since Week 2. Now on to London to play the Bengals defense that's also struggled, and just like the Falcons, they have injuries in their secondary. Both starting cornerbacks William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick were out last week, and it's hard to see them returning for this game. Are there similar concerns for gamescript this week? The Bengals have allowed a massive 8.29 yards per attempt, which ranks right behind the Falcons as the sixth-highest mark in the league, but they've allowed just the 13th fewest passing yards because teams typically run the ball a ton against them. They've faced an average of just 29.4 pass attempts per game while facing an average of a league-high 36.1 rushing attempts per game. The Rams pass percentage while leading by nine-plus points in games remains 51 percent, which is slightly above league average, ranking 14th. There are plenty of outcomes in this game, though Goff should be able to give you a high floor against a team who's allowed a league-high 7-of-7 quarterbacks to post 16 or more fantasy points against them. And keep in mind that no quarterback has thrown the ball more than 36 times against them, so it wasn't volume, either. Goff should be considered a low-end QB1 for this contest.
