Jared Goff completed 21-of-30 passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Rams' 30-10 Week 5 win over Washington. Goff shredded the Washington secondary on play action throughout the first half. As usual, pass catchers were wide open against the Football Team's leaky coverage unit. Goff was efficient in the Rams' low-volume passing attack a week after struggling against the Giants. He won't be a starting option in 12-team leagues next week against the 49ers.
San Francisco 49ers DFS Spin
Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will start in Week 6 against the Rams. Garoppolo practiced every day this week "without limitations" and, per coach Kyle Shanahan, looked healthier. Sunday is a tantalizing spot opposite Los Angeles' defense but Garoppolo should not be trusted for re-draft leagues until he has proved he's fully removed from his high-ankle sprain. He ranks as RotoPat's QB17 for Week 6.
