Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks, who was acquired from the Patriots on Tuesday, has already been working with quarterback Jared Goff this offseason. The Rams view Cooks as more of an impact player than what they could have gotten at 23rd overall in the first round of the draft, and they still have eight picks, including four in the top 136. Rams head coach Sean McVay was clearly excited about the possibilities of Cooks in this offense for now and in the future. He's a deep threat home run hitter that has recorded three straight 1,000-yard seasons, but he can be a bit too boom or bust for fantasy owners. Cooks will surely come with a high fantasy price tag in a rising offense, but he could be a bust in point-per-reception formats.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff headed into Saturday's contest against the Atlanta Falcons with 3,804 passing yards and 28 touchdowns on the season. He put together an incredible sophomore campaign, but the rookie mistakes are still there. Goff completed 24 of 45 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown in the 26-13 loss to the Falcons. Goff was inaccurate throughout most of the game, and failed to connect with anyone not named Robert Woods or Cooper Kupp. Goff improved greatly this season, but if he's truly going to be a franchise quarterback more improvements need to be made next season.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff has put together an absolutely incredible campaign. He finished with 3,804 passing yards and 28 passing touchdowns with just seven interceptions. He sat out in Week 17 but dropped 301 yards and four touchdowns on the Titans in Week 16. He's still learning and is going to make mistakes, but his upside is too great. Goff is worth owning in fantasy leagues this weekend. Don't expect him to be perfect, but if he finds his groove, it'll pay off for fantasy owners.
