Goodwin finished the 2016 season with career highs across the board in catches (29), targets (68), yards (431), and touchdown catches (three, tied with his 2013 rookie season). Goodwin almost didn't make the team after he spent much of the year trying to make the U.S. Olympic track and field squad, yet he surprisingly ended up leading all Buffalo wideouts in snap counts with 634. That shows just how banged up the receiving corps was all season, as the speedster is more of a No. 3 or No. 4 wideout at best. He's set to hit free agency in March, so we'll see if the Bills and the new coaching staff make a pitch to bring him back.
Goodwin caught three of four targets for 43 yards during Sunday's win over the Browns. Even though he's the No. 3 wideout now that Sammy Watkins is healthy again, Goodwin did see 79 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday. However, the Bills have the least lethal passing attack in the league, and Goodwin hasn't caught more than four balls in any game this season while failing to score since Week 7. He's a fun, speedy player when he gets the ball, but those times are far too infrequent for him to offer fantasy value.
Goodwin (wrist) had four receptions on seven targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss at Oakland. Tyrod Taylor couldn't connect with Goodwin on any big plays, as his long gain went for just 12 yards. The speedy wideout wasn't 100 percent heading into the game with a wrist injury, but somewhat missed a golden opportunity, as Robert Woods (knee) and Percy Harvin (illness) did not play. If you need Goodwin next week, he'll be up against the Steelers.
Goodwin (wrist) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. With both Robert Woods (knee) and Percy Harvin (illness) out Sunday, Goodwin -- who is capable of the occasional home run play -- should see his share of work in the Buffalo passing offense. He's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option this season and thus remains a speculative Week 13 fantasy lineup option.
Goodwin (wrist) is expected to play Sunday despite having left Thursday's practice with a wrist injury. Goodwin turned in a limited practice Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but he's expected to suit up this weekend, as is fellow wideout Sammy Watkins. With both Robert Woods (knee) and Percy Harvin (illness) out this weekend, Goodwin -- who is capable of the occasional home run play -- should see his share of snaps in Week 13, but he's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option this season and remains a speculative play.
