The result? Goff is starting to play like a No. 1 pick — from the 2016 draft, of course, but also quite likely on your Week 4 waiver-wire to-do list at quarterback.
Goff is fantasy's QB11 overall in average scoring (16.96 points). He has more explosive pass plays (19) than he did as a rookie (13) in roughly 40 percent of the attempts. His 10.1-yard attempt average leads all NFL throwers with at least two starts and, perhaps most impressively, he's improved his completion percentage by more than 15 points (54.6 to 70.4 percent).
The caveat is the Rams haven't played anyone yet — which is why we've previously mentioned them as sell-high candidates — but McVay has largely put on an X's and O's coaching clinic and coaxed great effort from his young players.
One of the other amazing aspects of Thursday night's game — fittingly the most exciting of a young and drunk NFL and fantasy football campaign — is Goff's 22-of-28, 292-yard, three-touchdown and 145.8-rated gem wasn't even the Rams' best performance.
