Goodwin caught two passes for 13 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 21 receptions for 313 yards and a touchdown. When the Bears were dealing with injuries at wide receiver, Goodwin had a two-game stretch in which he totaled 104 yards and a touchdown, but otherwise, he averaged less than 20 yards per game over the rest of the campaign. In each year since 2017, he's failed to post 400 receiving yards, and the 31-year-old will likely remain a rotational player going forward. It's unlikely he'll be a consistent fantasy option unless his situation changes drastically. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Goodwin was targeted twice but posted no statistics in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday. Goodwin has caught just two passes over the last three games, and he'll likely have very few opportunities to produce in Week 18 against the Vikings.
Goodwin (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants. Goodwin was added to the Week 17 injury report after he failed to practice Thursday due to the illness, but his return to the field Friday as a full participant clears the way for him to suit up Sunday. The wideout made his return from a three-game absence due to a foot injury in last week's win over Seattle, playing 22 snaps on offense (32 percent) and finishing with two catches for 23 yards on two targets. He could see a slight bump in his snap count Sunday now that the foot injury is further in the rear-view mirror.
Goodwin didn't participate in Thursday's practice session due to an illness. Goodwin returned from a foot injury in Sunday's Week 16 matchup against Seattle and hauled in both of his targets for 23 yards. He fully participated in practice Wednesday but was unable to take the field Thursday. His participation in Friday's practice session could help reveal his status ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants.
Goodwin caught two passes for 23 yards in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. With Darnell Mooney and David Montgomery seeing more than half of Nick Foles' passing attempts, there was very little left to go around, and Goodwin was one of five Bears to see two or three targets. With four or fewer targets in all but one game he's played this season, he'll have the potential for a low-floor scoring performance in Week 17 against the Giants.
