2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 season should have been Goodwin's breakout year following an offseason full of praise, but a Week 1 quadriceps injury cast a black cloud over Goodwin that would follow him the whole year. Not only did he deal with an Achilles' tendon injury later on in the year, but he also had to miss time due to personal trauma after he and his wife had to witness the stillbirth of their twins. Goodwin was productive anyway, averaging nine yards per target and scoring four times on only 44 targets, but his workload concerns got worse with San Francisco's second-round selection of Deebo Samuel. Goodwin is an Olympic-level athlete with consecutive seasons with at least 9.0 YPT, though, and Jimmy Garoppolo's return means the 49ers passing game should go somewhere. Even with Samuel around, it would be foolish to ignore Goodwin as a late-round target when last year's disappointment is fully explained by circumstances outside of his control. Read Past Outlooks

Draft hints at smaller role

May 2, 2019
The high-round selections of wideouts Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd puts Goodwin's status as a starting receiver in 2019 at risk, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Coach Kyle Shanahan tipped his hand prior to the draft when he praised Goodwin's ability to play at a high level at times, but also stated that he doesn't always need to be a starting receiver. The big-play wideout took a step backwards in production in 2018 (23 receptions for 395 yards and four touchdowns) and also missed five games due to injury. Given his down year and Shanahan's concerns regarding Goodwin's ability to be a true starting wideout, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the team spent two of its first three picks on receivers. Maiocco believes that Samuel could push for a starting job alongside Dante Pettis right off the bat, which could push Goodwin into a specialist role, where he is on the field for limited snaps for the occasional deep shot to stretch opposing defenses. A lot can happen between now and the start of the regular season, but Goodwin's stock is definitely lower than it was heading into last year's fantasy campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.

Coach Kyle Shanahan suggested Goodwin won't necessarily be a starter in 2019, Joe Fann of the 49ers' official website reports. "You know, there hasn't been a consistency," Shanahan said Tuesday. "At times, [Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne] have played at a high level. They've been out there a lot as starting receivers, which I don't think always needs to be the case. I think we can get other guys in there to take the pressure off of them."
