Key fantasy offseason movement

• Two franchises made major quarterback moves, one young and one not so young. The Los Angeles Rams did not even wait for the Super Bowl, sending Jared Goff and multiple first-round picks to the Detroit Lions for Matthew Stafford in late January. From a fantasy perspective, this may not seem like a big deal. Stafford averaged 16.3 PPR points per game a season ago, while Goff settled in at 16.0. Then again, Stafford now gets to play with a better team, which is why he ranks so much better than Goff in fantasy.
