2016 Week 17 vs NYJ (5 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin had a lot of targets but only managed to catch one. The throws weren't amazing but he probably should have still caught more than he did. Goodwin has been asked to do too much in this offense; he should be relegated to being a deep burner only. He will be in free agency this offseason and some team will stash him in their WR corps. But if they do as the Bills did and try to make him a primary guy, it will be a mistake.
2016 Week 16 vs MIA (5 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin was targeted five times but was unable to break coverage from most of them. He was only able to haul in one 16 yard catch.
2016 Week 15 vs CLE (4 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin played well in a game that focused on the RBs. He was able to convert a 3rd and 22 with his route running, adjust to a poor Tyrod Taylor to convert a different 3rd down, and elevate to catch yet another ball.
2016 Week 14 vs PIT (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin was invisible this game. At one point he did beat his defender and the safety over top but a dramatically underthrown pass from Tyrod Taylor led to a pick. With the rest of the skill players relatively healthy, Goodwin has dropped back down the depth chart to deep threat and nothing else.
2016 Week 13 vs OAK (8 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin had the 2nd most targets of his career (most since 2013) against the Raiders. He did get open a few times to pick up some small chunks of yardage. Goodwin's most memorable play occurred on 2nd and 6 when he caught the ball just short of converting. He had a strong opportunity to dive and get the first down but Goodwin decided to run sideways in an effort to get more yards. He ended up getting stuffed short of the line. The play was free because of a defensive offsides, if Goodwin saw the flag then this was fine. However, if he didn't see the flag and though this was a real play, this was a dumb move.
2016 Week 12 vs JAX (4 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin tied with Charles Clay for most targets on the game for the Bills but did not have the opportunity to do a lot with them. Goodwin was used primarily as a sideline receiver in plays that involved comeback routes and throws that led him out of bounds. He had a great effort on a poor Taylor throw but it was too far past him. With Robert Woods out and Sammy Watkins still held back by his injuries, Goodwin is a pseudo-#1 WR. When Woods comes back and Watkins reaches full strength, Goodwin should drop back down the depth chart.
2016 Week 9 vs SEA (5 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
As time goes on Marquise Goodwin is improving as a receiver. Instead of constantly running 9 routes, Goodwin was utilized as a sideline receiver, making multiple tiptoe catches. He also displayed a great stiff arm in order to get him to the 1st down marker. Goodwin is not a complete player but his route tree is expanding.
2016 Week 7 vs MIA (7 / 4 / 93 / 1 rec)
With Sammy Watkins being out and Robert Woods joining him in street clothes, Marquise Goodwin became the de facto primary WR for the Bills against the Dolphins. His best play was also one of the best plays for the Bills; he burned past both the corner and the safety for a wide open reception. A perfectly placed Tyrod Taylor throw gave the Bills a 67 yard TD. Goodwin also had some decent plays throughout the game. Unfortunately, late in the game Goodwin was injured while leaping high for an errant Taylor pass. His head slammed against the turf while coming down; it is very possible that he has a concussion.
2016 Week 6 vs SF (4 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
In the Bills' first drive of the game, Marquise Goodwin sped past both his defender and the safety with clear air between himself and the endzone. Unfortunately, Tyrod Taylor was hit while throwing and the ball ended up nowhere near Goodwin. That was the start of a disappointing day for Goodwin. He caught a Taylor pass at the end of the first half but was out-of-bounds. He was able to separate for a reception but it was because of his own OPI. Goodwin's speed wasn't enough for him in this game.
2016 Week 5 vs LA (6 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)
Marquise Goodwin had many targets but was not able to convert many of them into receptions. Some of these were not his fault however; a high Tyrod Taylor pass forced Goodwin to leap high for the ball and a defender was able to knock the ball loose as Goodwin came down. A more accurate pass would have resulted in a reception. Taylor made it up to Goodwin later in the game with a TD pass to Goodwin as he was sitting on the ground. Goodwin was able to get clear of his defender and make a play.
2016 Week 4 vs NE (5 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin was the target of multiple throws using his speed to get behind the defenders. With top-end speed as his only positive, Goodwin is there for the occasional big play but nothing more. Even without Sammy Watkins playing, Goodwin did not have a big game.
2016 Week 3 vs ARI (5 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Marquise Goodwin was targeted multiple times in the first half but did nothing of note. The speedster is only useful for his ability to get past the defense, not for actually catching the ball. He may have been injured at some point during the game but it did not impact his already poor play.
2016 Week 2 vs NYJ (5 / 2 / 112 / 1 rec)
Marquise Goodwin has never been a large part of the Bills' offense in the past. While one of his catches went for big yards, he was not a threat for most of the game. Goodwin relies heavily on his speed to beat defenders. His TD reception involved him simply sprinting past Darrelle Revis and catching a beautiful Tyrod Taylor pass. The last-ditch play of the game by the Bills involved another player catching a pass and lateraling to Goodwin at speed. The new OC may make Goodwin rise in the depth chart but he is simply a burner and nothing more.
