New York Jets RB Mike Goodson will plead not guilty to all charges, with the most serious being a second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. If convicted, Goodson would face a minimum three-year prison sentence under the Graves Act. Goodson's defense is confident they will show that he was not in possession of the gun. Goodson also faces a third-degree possession of a loaded handgun and marijuana and paraphernalia charges.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Goodson avoids serious jail time in this case, that doesn't mean that he won't be suspended for a good chunk of the season by the NFL. As a result, he's a risky handcuff option to Chris Ivory on draft day.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson was in attendance at the team's first OTA practice Monday, May 20, but only to meet with team officials following his arrest on drug and weapons charges last week. Goodson didn't participate or watch the team's workouts, and his future with the team is uncertain. If Goodson pleads guilty or is convicted of unlawful possession of a handgun, he'll be subject to the Graves Act, which is a New Jersey law that carries a minimum of three years in jail.

New York Jets OG Willie Colon said he does not think RB Mike Goodson will remain with the team after being arrested earlier this week. "It's one of the things where it's zero-tolerance with stuff like that," Colon said. "It's sad. Mike could have been huge for us."
Fantasy Tip: If the team does decide to release Goodson, Chris Ivory probably would be a bigger favorite to win the starting running back job this season. He likely would be a solid No. 2 running back on most fantasy teams.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Mike Goodson was arrested Friday, May 17, and charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams, possession of paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a loaded handgun and possession of a hollow-point bullet. Goodson was being held on $50,000 full cash bail.
Fantasy Tip: A suspension for Goodson from the league could be looming. Until we know more, he shouldn't be worth drafting. He was set to be the No. 2 back behind Chris Ivory to begin with. That task may now fall to Bilal Powell for a good portion of the early season.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson was taken into New Jersey police custody for drug possession and weapons charges.
Fri, 26 Apr 2013 18:46:14 -0700
The New York Jets have acquired RB Chris Ivory from the New Orleans Saints for a fourth-round pick.
Fantasy Tip: The Jets are putting together a somewhat crowded backfield. Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and offseason signee Mike Goodson are also in the mix. Ivory has the best combo of size and speed among them, though, and the Jets' desire to work out a long-term contract suggests that he'll be an interesting mid-round fantasy pick.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson is expected to be the favorite to win the starting running back job next season.
Thu, 21 Mar 2013 17:23:47 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson said he is not sure how the reps will be divided between himself, RB Joe McKnight and RB Bilal Powell next season.
Thu, 21 Mar 2013 17:21:36 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson said he believes he will fit in the team's new West Coast offense. "I definitely think it highlights some things that I do in my game, catching the ball out of the backfield, being able to isolate some linebackers, run some routes and also run the ball between the tackles, so I think it's going to be good," Goodson said.
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 17:54:27 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson said Wednesday, March 20, that his role has yet to be spelled out, but he feels his time is now to take the next step in his career. Goodson has solid speed, and he has the ability to catch the ball and go for big plays. He had three receptions for at least 40 yards last season with the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Tip: Goodson is likely to form a tandem with RB Bilal Powell, with RB Joe McKnight also in the conversation. Goodson is expected to replace RB Shonn Greene, who moved on to the Tennessee Titans, but he isn't likely to get 20 carries per game. He should be considered more of a low-end RB2 or flex play for fantasy purposes heading into 2013. All of this hinges on the team not following through on reported interest for Ahmad Bradshaw.
