Lions' Jared Goff (thumb) officially active for Week 18

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff (thumb) is officially active for the team's Week 18 game against the Green Bay Packers.

What It Means:

Goff has taken a beating so far in his first season with the Detroit Lions, and hasn't played since suffering his thumb injury back in Week 15. Still, the team and his teammates have praised Goff for his toughness, and he'll return to finish out the team's last game of the 2022 season.

Goff could benefit from the recent emergence of rookie receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, who has given the passing game it's first true, reliable pass-catcher of the season. Goff has a $6,800 salary on FanDuel, but our models project him for just 13.7 fantasy points against a stingy Packers defense.
