2018 Fantasy Outlook
Goodwin's always had elite speed - his 4.27 40 time is among the league's best the last five years - and when Pierre Garcon went down he finally got regular work, which suited him. Goodwin averaged 17.2 YPC (2nd) and 9.2 YPT (6th) and had five catches of 40-plus yards (T-8th) despite being only 24th in targets. At 5-9, 180, Goodwin is small and not especially cut out for red-zone work. Moreover, Garcon is due back this summer and could reprise his prior role as the team's No. 1 target and best threat near the goal line. But quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo targeted Goodwin 39 times for 356 yards over four starts Weeks 13-16 (Goodwin left early with a concussion in Week 17), so his role as the deep threat in coach Kyle Shanahan's up-and-coming offense is not in doubt, especially after Goodwin signed a three-year, $18.9 million extension in March. San Francisco did select wide receiver Dante Pettis in the second round of this year's draft, but Pettis' main job might be returning kicks, at least to start his career. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Goodwin is taking a step in the right direction after missing every practice last week while resting an injury that's been described as a deep thigh bruise. It doesn't sound like the type of issue which would require a lengthy absence, but we'll still have some cause for concern if Goodwin doesn't make it back to full participation Thursday or Friday. His absence freed up snaps for Dante Pettis in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Lions, with the rookie drawing just two targets on Jimmy Garoppolo's 26 pass attempts. The San Francisco passing attack should get back to its usual volume and then some Sunday in Kansas City.

Goodwin's size and speed make him a capable deep threat for a revamped San Francisco receiving corps. Last year's 431 receiving yards represented a career-high for the 26-year-old, so he will likely fly under the radar in fantasy drafts this year. There is some sleeper potential here, though, as Kyle Shanahan turned Taylor Gabriel -- a receiver with similar size and skill to Goodwin -- into a fantasy-relevant option in the two seasons they spent together (2014 with the Browns and 2016 with the Falcons).
Goodwin is an Olympic athlete. Literally. He competed in the 2012 London Olympics in the long jump and is training in an effort to compete again this summer. The Bills have been supportive of him and look forward to helping him harness his phenomenal speed and athleticism as an NFL wide receiver. For fantasy purposes, the best case here is a lightning-in-a-bottle scenario, but it is more likely that Goodwin will not produce any value in 2016.
Following a rookie season that included 17 catches for 283 yards and three touchdowns, Goodwin mustered just one catch (on nine targets) for 42 yards last season. Overall, the 5-9, 179-pound speedster lacks a complete skill set, which limits him to certain offensive packages because he gets pushed around easily at the line of scrimmage. With that in mind, Goodwin figures to compete for a roster spot as the Bills approach the upcoming season. At best, he's a return specialist and a very occasional home run threat on offense.
The 5-9 speedster didn't put up huge numbers as a rookie, but the Bills were pleased with his development as a receiver. The additions of fourth overall pick Sammy Watkins and former Buc Mike Williams don't point to a big increase in targets, but if Goodwin continues to progress coach Doug Marrone could start to find creative wayd to get the ball in his hands.
Goodwin, a third-round pick by the Bills, will make the final 53-man roster based on his speed alone (sub-4.3 40-yard times), especially in such an unexperienced corps.
