WR Marquise Goodwin - San Francisco 49ers
|5-9, 183||Born: 11-19-1990||College: Texas||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2013|
Week 14: at New Orleans Saints
FBG says: Tough matchup. As expected, the 49ers' run-dominant approach severely handcuffs the upside of its passing game. Jimmy Garoppolo has been passable as a Super Bowl-contending quarterback, completing 69% of his throws in full-on game manager mode. He's only topped 300 yards twice, though, with both coming against the Cardinals' awful pass defense. Through 12 games, those 2 matchups have accounted for 26% of his yardage and 38% of his touchdowns. There's some truly explosive talent mixed into this attack, particularly on the inside of the formation. Tight end George Kittle remains a matchup-proof fantasy star, and rookie slot man Deebo Samuel continues to make at least two or three splash plays a week. He put up 112 and 134 yards in Weeks 10 and 11, then caught long touchdowns in each of the last two. Emmanuel Sanders looms, as well, even though Samuel has cut deeply into his role. But without consistent volume in a conservative attack, their expectations need to be held in check. Game flow and gameplan will tell the tale; it's rare to see two or more erupt in the same week. The New Orleans pass defense is generally a strong one, boasting a true shutdown cornerback and a handful of rising stars around him. Last week, they recorded 9 sacks and allowed Matt Ryan just 6.2 yards per attempt. The Saints have allowed big raw yardage in a handful of games, but much of it has been boosted by garbage time. And with top cornerback Marshon Lattimore back in the lineup, this is again a daunting matchup for opponents' No. 1 wideouts. Lattimore has done fantastic recent work against the likes of Amari Cooper (48 yards), D.J. Chark (43), and Mike Evans (69 over 2 games). On the other side, Eli Apple is fresh off one of his worst games as a pro, losing repeatedly to the Falcons' Calvin Ridley. It's unclear just how much impact they'll have Sunday, though, as the 49ers work the slots much more often than the boundaries. The burden will be on safeties Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell to control the seams and keep Jimmy Garoppolo's slot targets from producing after the catch.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 7 vs WAS (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Goodwin dropped a pass and then had to leave the game a few plays later due to a possible concussion -- all on San Francisco's first drive.
2019 Week 6 vs LAR (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Goodwin's most notable play was a wide open deep drop to start the second quarter. He went in motion across the formation and ran a wheel route down the left sideline -- completely uncovered. Linebacker Dante Fowler tried to catch up with him, but Goodwin was already long gone. Jimmy Garoppolo underthrew the pass, which caused Goodwin to have to stop to make the catch, but the ball did hit him right in the breadbasket. This was an especially untimely drop, as Garoppolo threw an interception two plays later.
2019 Week 5 vs CLE (4 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec, 1 / 15 / 0 rush)
Despite starting and playing over 60 percent of snaps, Goodwin didn't see his first target until early in the second half. And in a span of five plays, he produced his entire receiving output for the night. His two biggest gains, indeed two of the 49ers' three-biggest pass plays of the game, involved attacking the coverage of injury-replacement backup cornerback T.J. Carrie.
2019 Week 3 vs PIT (2 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Goodwin started and played the most snaps in San Francisco's five-man wide receiver committee, but he largely played a decoy role in this game. Several of his teammates receptions came on plays where he cleared out a zone and they ran into it wide open behind him. His personal best on the day, a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter, came on a deep out route between two levels of Pittsburgh's zone coverage.
2019 Week 2 vs CIN (3 / 3 / 77 / 1 rec)
Goodwin started once again, but ceded a higher percentage of snaps to San Francisco's backups than he did in Week 1. He was wide open on both of his long receptions, though one required enduring a hard hit from safety Jesse Bates III to hold onto the ball. On the other, his touchdown on San Francisco's first drive, Goodwin didn't have a Bengals defender within 15 yards of him in any direction when he caught the ball at Cincinnati's 15-yard line. This was a result of one of Kyle Shanahan's signiature play, called "receiver gets lost in the sea of scrimmage-line humanity on a play action; then emerges wide open on the other side of the field.
2019 Week 1 vs TB (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Goodwin's only catch of the game could have gained much more yardage if not for Jimmy Garoppolo throwing it slightly behind him on a wide open quick slant. The only other thing of note from Goodwin's performance was drawing a pass interference penalty on third down to extend a second quarter scoring drive.
