Jared Goff, LAR vs. NO, $5,900
The week after surrendering 31.72 DraftKings fantasy points to Deshaun Watson, we’re fading the Saints defense in Week 2 by dialing up Jared Goff. Priced at $5,900 on the main slate, Goff checks in with the 11th highest-salary of Sunday QBs. The Rams QB was stifled for only 10.44 DKFP in Week 1 against Carolina, so the opportunity to buy low on one of the league’s premier home QBs in 2018 is all the more enticing.
Goff was ridiculous at home last year, passing for 2,732 yards, 22 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions in 8 regular season home games. In fantasy terms, Goff remarkably averaged more than 28 DKFP per home game in 2018. In his regular season match-up with the Saints a year ago (in New Orleans), Goff delivered 33.3 DKFP. Being the signal caller for an offense that put up an NFL-best 36.25 points per game at home (you read that right), Goff will conversely go against a Saints defense that struggled mightily last year and this year.
In 2018, the Saints allowed the second-most DKFP to opposing quarterbacks of any team in the NFL at 23.10 DKFP per game. Goff has been over 22 DKFP in 7 of his last 8 regular season home games, and makes for a wonderful QB to target in the mid-tier range for your Week 2 NFL DFS lineup.
