Mike Goodson Fantasy News

New York Post - [Full Article]

Mike Goodson’s absence should create a bigger role for Jets RB Chris Ivory, who had just four carries Sunday. Ivory, who came to the Jets in a trade from New Orleans, said he is not frustrated by his limited role, but hopes the Jets will run more. Ivory has 115 yards on 34 carries this year.

Fantasy Impact:

The plan all along for Ivory was for him to get a lot of work, but he couldn't stay on the field in camp and once the season started, and lost the job to Bilal Powell, who has played pretty well at times. With Goodson now done for the year, Ivory has a chance to play a much bigger role. Given the team traded for him, they likely still want him to be more involved. He may be worth stashing on your roster to see how this plays out over the next couple of weeks.

Fantasy Impact:

Stephen Hill's availability is a bit of a surprise, but it looks like he's good to go for Monday night. If he were questionable, we would avoid him, but the probable tag means he's virtually certain to play. He is a risk/reward start in a nice matchup with the Falcons.

New York Jets on Twitter - [Full Article]

The Jets have moved RB Mike Goodson to the active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

He injury his hamstring in practice on Friday but coach Rex Ryan downplayed the injury saying he wasn't overly concerned. He would likely have a limited role in the Jets game this week behind Bilal Powell.

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

Coach Rex Ryan was non-committal on whether RB Mike Goodson would play, noting that he's not in football shape. Chances are, Goodson will have a small role, perhaps spot duty at running back and kickoff returner -- an area that could use a spark. With Chris Ivory still recovering from a hamstring injury, the Jets could use another pair of legs to help Bilal Powell in the backfield.

Fantasy Impact:

Look for Goodson to play a minor role on Monday night, especially if Chris Ivory, who returned to practice this week, is able to suit up. Bilal Powell should be a safe start against the Falcons.

Newark Star-Ledger - [Full Article]

His four-game suspension over, RB Mike Goodson said he expects to play Monday night when the Jets travel to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.

Goodson has been suspended since Aug. 31 for a violation of the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. The suspension stemmed from an incident in May when Goodson and another man were found in an SUV on Route 80 in possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets. Goodson was intoxicated and transported to the hospital.

Fantasy Impact:

Goodson worked out twice a day to stay in shape and he said he's ready to go. He'll compete for RB2 duties behind Bilal Powell. Keep in mind Chris Ivory is out with a hamstring injury with no timetable to return.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Agent Michael Hoffman sent out congratulations to his client RB Alex Green on getting claimed off of waivers by the Jets.

Green was a third-round pick in 2011, but tore his ACL that season and averaged just 3.4 yards per carry for Green Bay last season. With Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin joining the Packers in this year’s draft, Green wound up getting pushed off the depth chart.

Fantasy Impact:

With the Jets, he'll like be behind Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell, displacing Khalil Bell, according to the story. Mike Goodson is suspended for the first four games of the season and his return could spell the end of Green’s time with the Jets if he doesn’t make a strong early impression on the coaching staff.

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

Mike Goodson won't count on the 53-man roster during his four-game suspension. Who is the third-down back until Goodson returns? Bilal Powell did it last season, but he's had a couple of drops and pass-protection issues. Keep an eye on former Jets RB/KR Leon Washington; he's on the bubble in New England.

Fantasy Impact:

Powell did have a bad drop against the Giants, but has otherwise been solid this preseason and continues to sit atop the Jets' depth chart, though the team may just be trying to motivate Chris Ivory. Goodson has finally reported to camp.

Mike Goodson suspended four games
Tuesday, August 27, 2013, 8:48am

USA Today - [Full Article]

Troubled running back Mike Goodson has returned to the New York Jets after missing most of the preseason to deal with personal issues.

But don't expect to see Goodson on the field any time soon.

The Jets, in announcing Goodson's return Monday night, also announced that Goodson will be suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Impact:

Goodson likely still has a spot on the team after the Jets released Joe McKnight. Still, when he returns, he'll at least be behind Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. He's also likely not in football shape.

Tuesday, July 30, 2013, 5:29pm

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

The Jets current running-back situation isn't good. Chris Ivory (hamstring) still hasn't practiced, Mike Goodson isn't in camp (no one is saying when or if he'll show up) and Joe McKnight seems to develop a daily ailment, leaving Bilal Powell and John Griffin. Actually, Griffin has demonstrated some cut-back ability, but they'll need the big dogs to make this running game go.

Jets believe Chris Ivory could be "a top-10 back"
Monday, July 22, 2013, 7:10pm

Rich Cimini, ESPN - [Full Article]

For the first time since 1994, the Jets are entering a season without a 1,000-yard rusher on the roster. Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell will battle for playing time. The Jets think Ivory could be a top-10 back if he stays healthy.

Fantasy Impact:

We agree. Like Michael Turner, Lamont Jordan and Chester Taylor before him, the 25-year-old Ivory is one of those RBs that the fantasy community has been hoping would get an opportunity to start, and now he'll get his chance. He was limited to 27 games in four college seasons due to injury, and was signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He has averaged 5.1 YPC in his career, though he has struggled with injuries in the NFL as well. In his rookie season, due to injuries to Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas, Ivory got a few starts and had some success. In 13 career games where he has received at least 10 touches, he's averaged 78 total yards, 0.38 TD and an impressive 5.2 YPC. That production equates to #16 RB-type numbers. New Orleans has not thrown the ball his way very often -- he has just three catches in his career -- but he did score on a 76-yard swing pass in preseason of his rookie year so he has some pass-catching ability. Mike Goodson is pretty good in the passing game, so we're expecting Ivory to be a two-down back in New York, which will limit his upside. If he starts catching passes, watch out.

Key to Jets could be Chris Ivory
Tuesday, July 16, 2013, 10:55am

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

Jets RB Chris Ivory was acquired in a draft-day trade with the Saints and is one of the keys to the Jets' season.

The Jets need Ivory to become a 15-carries-a-game back. They see him as a poor man's Marshawn Lynch, a big, bruising runner with the ability to wear down a defense.

The concern with Ivory is that he's never done it for a full season, and that's nothing to take lightly at the running-back position.

Fantasy Impact:

While the Jets need Ivory to step up, and it seems like he'll be given a chance, there are some other experienced backs on the team as well: Mike Goodson, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight. Ivory has certainly shown flashes, but has also struggled with injuries. We rank Ivory 19th among RBs with an ADP of the 6th round. The team is hoping Ivory can produce as an RB1, but if he can't, it could turn into a committee situation.
