Past Fantasy Outlooks
Goodson is the favorite to start at inside linebacker alongside newly signed Alec Ogletree in the team's new 3-4 alignment. It's likely Ogletree will see more snaps and lead the team in tackles, but Goodson could be useful if he secures the early-down work.
A fourth-round pick last year, Goodson barely saw the field. This year, he'll vie for the Giants starting middle linebacker job in camp, and he's even seeing work in nickel packages. Should he impress, he could stay on the field a good deal of the time and be a nice source of tackles.
Fourth-round draft pick, competing for snaps at linebacker, but it's a crowded, if unimpressive, field.
