2019 Fantasy Outlook
Goodson is the favorite to win the right inside linebacker job out of camp, but fifth-round rookie Ryan Connelly could push him for the job at some point this season. Goodson is a modest source of tackles, and he had two picks last year. Read Past Outlooks

December 17, 2018
Goodson recorded nine tackles and a pass defensed across 46 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
ANALYSIS
Goodson's nine tackles were the most he's had in a single game so far this season, as the linebacker played in 66 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. He now has 50 tackles (36 solo) on the season and will look to finish out the campaign on a high note over these next two weeks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
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.
