Fri, 11 Oct 2013 12:47:13 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as probable for Week 6.
Fantasy Tip: Bilal Powell likely will receive most of the carries during the team with Goodson sharing time with Chris Ivory as the backup running backs. Goodson likely will not be more than a flex option in most leagues because of the limited number of plays he will get during the game.
Thu, 10 Oct 2013 15:15:07 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Goodson and Ivory need to do a lot more if they are going to unseat Powell as the top RB option on the team. For now, Powell is your best bet for fantasy value among the trio, but Goodson and Ivory could eat into the touches if they start running well and head coach Rex Ryan elects to go with the hot-hand approach. For now, that hot hand belongs to Powell.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 16:18:30 -0700

"I'm excited to get Mike rolling."
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 14:45:02 -0700
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Ivory took some repetitions in the portion of practice open to the media, however. It's a good sign. But with Bilal Powell remaining the lead back and Mike Goodson back in the picture, it's hard to see Ivory making a huge fantasy impact for at least another week or two.
Wed, 02 Oct 2013 20:17:01 -0700

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 12:42:38 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson is eligible to rejoin the team for practice Monday, Sept. 30, after serving his four-game suspension for substance abuse.
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Goodson to be involved much in his first week back, even with Chris Ivory (hamstring) expected to miss another week. Bilal Powell has earned the lion's share of the touches, and Alex Green is in the picture for backup touches.
Thu, 26 Sep 2013 17:43:59 -0700
The New York Jets are expected to use RB Bilal Powell as the featured back the next two weeks while they bring RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) and suspended RB Mike Goodson are brought back slowly. Running back coach Anthony Lynn said Powell can be used in most situations. "He's always had a skill set that can cover - between the tackles, outside the tackles, receiving skills, blocking skills. He has a complete skill set, and that allows him to stay on the field. Even if he's not the feature back he would be on the field a lot," Lynn said. Powell said he entered the season more prepared which has allowed him to play faster and be more comfortable.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 09:33:34 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson agreed to cut his base salary from $1 million to $715,000. With his four-game suspension and two games on the non-football injury list, his cap number is just $798,080 for the 2013 season.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 17:59:20 -0700
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is listed at the top of the team's depth chart, ahead of RB Chris Ivory and newly acquired RB Alex Green. RB Mike Goodson will also join the mix after he serves his four-game suspension.
Fantasy Tip: Powell's grasp on the job is still tenuous at best, and he should be considered nothing more than an RB3 or flex play in Week 1.
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 17:09:14 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson (personal) said Tuesday, Aug. 27, that he has resolved "some personal stuff," and he will work his way back into playing shape during his upcoming four-game suspension. Goodson did not say whether he received counseling for substance abuse during his personal absence, but it is believed that is where he went during his time away from the team.
Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, there is no reason to bother with Goodson for a while. Even when he comes back, he will be behind at least Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory in the pecking order for carries, unless injuries occur.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 18:21:44 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson has been suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substance Abuse.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 11:24:11 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson is expected to report to the team within the next 24 hours. Goodson has not participated in training camp because of personal issues.
Fantasy Tip: Goodson has missed a lot of practice time and probably will begin the season as the No. 3 running back. He likely will not have any fantasy value unless he becomes the team's No. 2 running back at some point during the regular season. Goodson would be a waiver wire option if he does earn the No. 2 running back job.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 14:48:26 -0700
New York Jets general manager Mike Idzik said that he expects RP Mike Goodson to show up during the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Goodson has missed way too much of the preseason and training camp to be expected to contribute regularly at the start of the regular season. That could change eventually, but as of now, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are the main guys out of the backfield. Injuries and poor performance could push Goodson up the depth chart eventually, but for now, ignore him in fantasy drafts.
Tue, 06 Aug 2013 15:34:58 -0700
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is unlikely to play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, thanks to a tweaked hamstring. RBs Mike Goodson and Joe McKnight (head) haven't been available in drills, either, so RB Bilal Powell has received a lot of the repetitions in training camp.
Sat, 27 Jul 2013 19:16:20 -0700
New York Jets general manager John Idzik said he hopes RB Mike Goodson will be able to rejoin the team at some point. Idzik would not comment on the personal matter Goodson is dealing with.
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 12:20:32 -0700

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 18:57:39 -0700

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 22:15:31 -0700
The New York Jets enter the season without a 1,000-yard rusher on the roster for the first time since 1994. RBs Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell will battle or playing time. The team feels Ivory could be a Top 10 back if he is able to stay healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Ivory has the best shot at being a viable fantasy option among the three RBs. Right now, consider him a low-end RB2 or flex play on draft day with the potential to be a must-start RB2.
Wed, 26 Jun 2013 19:14:16 -0700
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is in need of a strong training camp and preseason to stick around, as the team brought in RBs Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson during the offseason. Powell and RB Joe McKnight are fighting for jobs, and McKnight has value due to his skills as a kick returner. Powell's value increases if Goodson is suspended for his recent arrest.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Powell makes the roster, he still has an uphill climb to get into the mix for any meaningful touches. Avoid Powell on draft day in all fantasy leagues unless injuries decimate the team's RB corps during the preseason to open up a more prominent role.
Sun, 16 Jun 2013 08:10:23 -0700
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson's future with the team is still uncertain because of his arrest this offseason. He could face a one-game suspension if he pleads guilty to possession of marijuana. The gun charges against him could be dropped.
