2013 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Aug-27-2013 by Chris Weeks
Update (8-26): As New York announced Goodson's return on Monday, the team also revealed he will be suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. In May, he was arrested and charged with drugs and weapons possession after police officers found Goodson and a companion passed out in a car. Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are the Jets primary running backs with Ivory the favorite to dominate touches. He's also likely to miss games with injuries, which is why Goodson had the look of a top-40 RB until his personal life got, um, complicated. Only Ivory owners should even contemplate drafting Goodson and even then only in deep league and then don't. If Ivory/Powell struggle early on, then Goodson becomes a potential waiver wire addition.
Update : Due to his brush with the law back in May, Goodson has yet to report to camp. At this point the Jets don't know if/when Goodson might show up. With just two games remaining and no practice time with the team, it is hard to believe Goodson will play much of a role in the Jets offense this season.
In mid-May Goodson was picked up on a weapons and drug charge, putting the Jets in a rather difficult spot. On one hand, if they let him go, they'll need to take a cap hit for the guaranteed money Mike will receive; while on the other hand, they could have a PR nightmare on their hands. Either way this is not a good situation for Goodson or the Jets. Just when Mike was going to have a chance to get on the field away from a DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Darren McFadden he goes and does this. For now we'll assume Goodson is the Jets' third down back and replacement for Ivory once Chris is injured. Until we hear some better news, it is probably best to leave Mike off your fantasy roster.

|18.01||Bruno Boys - Goodson is another backup that I see as very underrated and he?s absolute gold in the 18th round. He?s been productive every chance he?s been given in the NFL. He?s been stuck as a backup forever yet his current situation may be his best yet. He?s behind a completely unproven and injury prone Chris Ivory on a team that runs the ball religiously. The problem with this pick is the pending court case against Goodson for drug possession. His case has already been pushed back until September and much like Lynch?s DUI problem, it may take over a year to resolve. If convicted, Goodson will certainly be suspended but if not, Goodson will be one of the most valuable backups in the league this year.|

|13.08||DraftSharks - Each passing day makes the gun-and-drugs arrest look less like it will impact this season. Goodson brings game-breaking speed and caught 40 passes for the Panthers back in 2010. He also outperformed Darren McFadden in Oakland last year. He just needs touches. And the Jets need playmakers. Handcuffing him to Ivory serves as a bonus for me here.|
