Marquise Goodwin Fantasy Football News 2018

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn't practice all week, so consider him uncertain for Week 3. HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that WR Dante Pettis will start in Goodwin’s place this weekend. The 2nd-round rookie is a flier in DFS and deeper season-long leagues.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. He's reportedly just dealing with a bruise but wasn't able to play through it in the opener. We'll see if he can get on the practice field on Thursday. Rookie WR Dante Pettis played 73% of San Francisco's offensive snaps with Goodwin sidelined for most of last week's game.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan labeled WR Marquise Goodwin "day-to-day" with a bruised thigh suffered in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Goodwin tried to return to that game before eventually taking a seat for the rest of the afternoon. It sounds like a relatively minor injury, but we'll track his practice participation throughout this week.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin injured his quad in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Vikings and is questionable to return. Rookie WR Dante Pettis has taken his place in the lineup.

UPDATE: Goodwin returned in the 3rd quarter.

We previously passed along multiple 49ers beat guys saying that WR Marquise Goodwin looked like the team's top wideout. Well, ESPN's Dan Graziano takes it a step further, saying, "The 49ers view him as their clear No. 1 wide receiver." We had already moved Goodwin up our WR rankings and Pierre Garcon down, and the gap in upside between them is likely even larger in Goodwin's favor. He should be the 1st 49ers wideout off the board in any fantasy format.

Few players have drawn more positive press than 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin early in training camp. Joe Fann of the team's official website tweeted this on Thursday: "I'm amazed by the development of Marquise Goodwin over the past year. His route running & hands are vastly improved. He's far more than raw athleticism. He looks like a bona fide No. 1 WR, and he's carrying himself as such." The San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch and the Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Grant Cohn have also said recently that Goodwin looks like the team's #1 WR. He's been consistently making big plays, while Pierre Garcon has gotten off to a slow start. Maybe that shouldn't come as a major surprise considering Garcon was on IR by the time QB Jimmy Garoppolo arrived last year. Goodwin, meanwhile, averaged 5.8 catches and 76.8 yards per game in Garoppolo’s 5 starts. We'll see if Garcon can gain some ground back over the next few weeks, but we've adjusted our projections for the 49ers' WRs.

49ers WR Trent Taylor underwent what HC Kyle Shanahan called a "minor" back surgery earlier this offseason. Taylor has been sidelined since but is expected to be ready "at or near the beginning of training camp," per Shanny. Taylor hauled in 43 of 60 targets (71.7%) for 430 yards and 2 TDs as a rookie last year. He faces stiff competition for playing time this season, though, with 2nd-round rookie Dante Pettis joining veterans Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin. We'll see how soon Taylor is able to get back on the field, but he's not worth a pick in fantasy drafts right now.

The 49ers selected Washington WR Dante Pettis with the 44th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. He never reached 1,000 yards in 4 college seasons and didn’t jump off the tape to us. But Kyle Shanahan obviously likes him. Pettis was a stud return man at Washington and is considered 1 of the better route runners in this class. He’ll join Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin atop San Francisco’s depth chart.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin has signed a 3-year, $20.3 million extension. It tacks on to the 1 year remaining on his old deal, locking him up in San Francisco through the 2021 season. It's a well-deserved reward for a guy coming off a career-best 56-962-2 line. Goodwin was particularly good with QB Jimmy Garoppolo, racking up 29 catches for 384 yards and a score in Garoppolo's 5 starts. The contract extension should lock Goodwin into a significant 2018 role, even with the 'Niners likely to add to the WR position this offseason.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin sustained a concussion in Sunday's finale against the Rams. It shouldn't impact his offseason, but it's worth filing away in case he suffers another. Goodwin was elevated by the arrival of QB Jimmy Garoppolo, racking up 29 catches for 384 yards and a score in Jimmy G's 5 starts.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Colts. The matchup is right, but Goodwin remains just a fantasy flier.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts after a limited week of practice. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that he expects Goodwin to play, but he obviously has at least 1 more stage of the protocol to clear. We’ll find out his status by noon ET on Sunday, but Goodwin is no more than a DFS flier if he plays.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He caught 1 of 2 targets for 18 yards before exiting. We'll track his status through the protocol this coming week, but Goodwin isn't much of a fantasy option.

Deep balls to WR Marquise Goodwin have been a regular occurrence early in 49ers training camp, according to insider Cam Inman. QB Brian Hoyer and Goodwin connected for a 60-yarder on Monday. Goodwin has world-class speed (he clocked a 4.27-second 40 time at the Combine) but never emerged as more than a situational deep threat in Buffalo. It sounds like he's the leader in the clubhouse for the #2 WR job in San Francisco, though. More volume would certainly help. Still, it's tough to imagine him emerging as more than a late-round target in best-ball leagues, where his weekly volatility won't hurt.

The 49ers and WR Marquise Goodwin have agreed to a deal, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Goodwin goes just 5'9, 179 pounds and totaled only 49 catches in 4 seasons with the Bills. He boasts sub-4.3 speed, though, and has averaged 15.9 yards per catch. He'll team up with HC Kyle Shanahan, who made the small-but-speedy Taylor Gabriel a fantasy factor in Atlanta over the 2nd half of last season. We wouldn't bet on Goodwin being a significant fantasy asset, but he'll be worth monitoring this summer.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins managed just 1 reception for 10 yards among 4 targets in Sunday's win over the Browns. Tyrod Taylor attempted just 24 throws in the game (plus 1 more from EJ Manuel), but Watkins still saw WR Marquise Goodwin match his target count and TE Charles Clay beat it by 3. Watkins also saw his playing time dip to 63% of the offensive snaps after he topped 90% the week before. He remains in play for a Week 16 battle with Miami, but keep the risk in mind as you weigh Watkins against your other options.

Bills WRs Robert Woods (knee) and WR Percy Harvin (migraines) are out for this weekend’s game against the Raiders. That leaves Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter behind Sammy Watkins, who isn’t expected to play a full slate of snaps.

11:33am EST 11/27/16

Bills WR Percy Harvin (migraines) is inactive for today’s game against the Jaguars. With Robert Woods also out, Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter figure to join Sammy Watkins as Buffalo’s top 3 WRs.

Bills WR Robert Woods (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. Percy Harvin and Marquise Goodwin will join Sammy Watkins as Buffalo's top 3 WRs against a tough Jacksonville secondary.

Bills WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. That leaves Justin Hunter and Walter Powell behind Robert Woods. Hunter is on the desperation-start radar after scoring in 2 of his last 3.
