The Facts: A year ago, OC Ben Johnson was new in his job and still trying to teach the basics of his offense in training camp. This year, the Lions entered camp with a wealth of experience in their offense, and Goff has benefited from that. That’s the word from Lions head coach Dan Campbell, who said he sees a lot of progress on offense compared to 2022. “We are farther along with the details of what we do,” Campbell said. “There’s a number of things that we were implementing last year that it was the first time we had done it together. Ben’s the OC, myself, Goff, the offense, the mesh, how we’re gonna do it, run it. Whereas no, we’re in 202, instead of 101. It’s now, how fast can we grow now that we’re at the second level? We are so far beyond where we were because of communication, guys being on the same page. And I think that’s where Goff has really grown for us, too, is Year Two in this system. So that’s what excites me.”
Diehards Line: Goff started all 17 games and finished sixth in the NFL in passing yards and fifth in TDs, making the Pro Bowl for the third time in his career (first since 2018). He posted five games with 300 yards and five with three or more TDs. Goff also took care of the ball. He led the league with 11 games with at least 25 pass attempts and zero interceptions. Amon-Ra St. Brown has emerged as true WR1, and the Lions added RB David Montgomery and WR Marvin Jones and drafted RB Jahmyr Gibbs and TE Sam LaPorta in the first two rounds. Currently going off as the QB17 on Underdog Fantasy, Goff is poised to provide great value in drafts.
