San Francisco wide receiver Marquise Goodwin

Marquise Goodwin spent his first four seasons with the Buffalo Bills where they, of course, underutilized him. Seems to be a trend up there with young talents. Goodwin joined the San Francisco 49ers last offseason and saw his production double from his career-best almost surpassing 1,000-yards.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan helped Goodwin to a 962-yard season in 2017. Less than half of his receiving yards come from new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Given the amount of success that Garoppolo and the 49ers offense had toward the end of the season, its hard not to think that it will be a high powered offense come 2018.

It will be Shanahan’s second year in his new head coaching job which could bring some more improvements. Goodwin ranked as the 46th best wide receiver by ESPN on their pre-fantasy projections for this season. Outside of maybe Pierre Garcon, I fail to see any of the current wide receivers taking any balls away from Goodwin this season.

I think Goodwin will land as a reliable flex option or even a bye week filler in 2018. Who knows, he could be a guy that ends up making your starting roster on a weekly basis. It will all depend on how well Garoppolo transitions into 2018.
