Jared Goff, QB (DET)

Two TDs in Thanksgiving defeat

Goff completed 21 of 25 passes for 171 yards with two touchdowns and a lost fumble during Thursday's 16-14 loss to Chicago.

Playing through the oblique injury that caused him to enter the game with a questionable tag, Goff got off to a hot start, hitting former Rams teammate Josh Reynolds for a 39-yard touchdown early in the first quarter. However, the Lions would only account for one more scoring drive the rest of the game thanks to a disproportionate number of as penalties in combination with general offensive ineptitude. While Lions fans can at least be thankful for seeing a better performance than what backup Tim Boyle displayed last week against Cleveland, that's still not saying much. Goff will continue to be an unappealing fantasy play when Detroit hosts Minnesota in Week 13.
