The Detroit Lions are trading quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams for Jared Goff and future draft picks.

Fantasy Impact

There were rumors this was happening but I didn’t expect Goff to be heading back as part of the deal. The Rams have a quarterback who can make all the throws in Sean McVay’s offense which is great for guys like Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp (and Matthew Stafford joining this offense). As for Goff, he gets to restart in Detroit with.... possibly no pass catchers.
