Jared Goff completed 25-of-32 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 17-9 Week 4 win against the Giants. Goff was terrible all day, saving his statistical day with a late 55-yard touchdown to Cooper Kupp. Goff hardly went downfield at all as the Rams ran their usual conservative offense. Goff will have touchdown-driven spike weeks -- good luck guessing when those will be -- but for now, he's an iffy option in 12-team leagues. Goff will be a superflex option next week against Washington.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dwayne Haskins won't start Week 5 against the Rams. The benching comes after Ron Rivera said Haskins needed to "improve greatly" to remain the starter. Haskins responded with his first 300-yard game, but it wasn't enough to keep the job. Washington will turn to Kyle Allen, with Alex Smith taking over the backup role. Haskins could get another look later this season if Washington falls out of playoff contention.
