WR Marquise Goodwin - San Francisco 49ers
|5-9, 183||Born: 11-19-1990||College: Texas||Drafted: Round 3|
Week 12: vs Seattle Seahawks
FBG says: Tough matchup. C.J. Beathard had the best outing of his young career against a reeling Giants defense his last game in Week 10, completing 76% of his passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns. Beathard padded his stats with a big 83-yard bomb to Marquise Goodwin, who was wide open on a blown coverage. Beathard also got his tight end involved here as Garrett Celek finished tied for the team lead in targets with six and a touchdown. Beathard did a good job at spreading the ball around, but a ton of his completions were for short yardage gains which helped him achieve that 76% completion rate. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk actually led the team in receptions with five as he was a dump off machine in this game while Carlos Hyde only caught two passes for six yards, his second-worst performance through the air this season. The 49ers offensive line has not done a great job in pass protection on the year, allowing 32 sacks which rank third-most in the league. They were back to full strength before the bye though and did not allow a single sack as Joe Staley returned to left tackle and Trent Brown shifted back to right tackle. This line will be under a ton of pressure this week though, as this Seahawks pass rush looked better during the second half of this season. Just one game after losing Richard Sherman, the Seahawks secondary took another huge blow as they have now learned that Kam Chancellor may be lost for the season due to a neck injury. Chancellor had been one of the best safeties in the league, and the Seahawks are now down two members of their famed Legion of Boom. Bradley McDougald will step in for Chancellor opposite Earl Thomas. McDougald played relatively well against the Falcons this past week, but he is definitely a downgrade from Chancellor. Jeremy Lane did not look good at all in his first start in relief of Sherman, however, it doesn't help that he saw a lot of Julio Jones in coverage. In the midst of all these injuries though, linebacker Earl Wagner is having one of his best seasons, particularly in pass coverage as he has looked elite all season long. The 49ers pose a minimal threat to the Seahawks defense, especially as Carlos Hyde should draw coverage by Wagner if he sneaks out of the backfield.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 10 vs NYG (2 / 1 / 83 / 1 rec, 1 / 18 / 0 rush)
Goodwin was -- understandably, given his personal situation that was only revealed later -- not heavily involved against the Giants. On his lone catch, an 83-yard touchdown, Goodwin split the Giants' disguised -- and ultimately blown -- Cover-2 zone. Dominique-Rodgers Cromartie dropped from slot cornerback to second safety just prior to the snap, but bit on the slot receiver's route, thereby leaving fellow cornerback Janoris Jenkins several yards behind Goodwin on his post route and with no safety help.
2017 Week 9 vs ARI (8 / 2 / 68 / 0 rec)
You might assume that Goodwin only caught two of eight passes because he's San Francisco's deep receiver, i.e., he's a target on low-percentage throws. That wasn't the case against Arizona, however, as only one incompletion was on a deep ball. The others involved run-of-the-mill possession routes that C.J. Beathard either underthrew, overthrew, or threw late. To make up for it, Goodwin produced the 49ers' longest play. Lined up on the right side of the formation, Goodwin used his speed to run free after spliting the quarters coverage of Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu. The throw was shaded toward the sideline, but Goodwin was able to make a late adjustment on the ball and haul in a 55-yard completion.
2017 Week 8 vs PHI (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Goodwin's first target came on San Francisco's second drive and fell incomplete due to miscommunication, as C.J. Beathard either threw a back-shoulder pass or was anticipating a short hitch route, but Goodwin ran a go route. On the next drive, Beathard air-mailed his throw into the 49ers bench on another short hitch. Goodwin's third and final target wasn't until the third quarter, and it also fell incomplete due to an inaccurate Beathard throw in a short hitch, this time low.
2017 Week 7 vs DAL (8 / 4 / 80 / 0 rec)
Goodwin provided the lone passing game highlight of the day for San Francisco, a 48-yard catch and run near the end of the first quarter. With 1st-and-10 at their own 10-yard line, San Francisco called a play-action pass with Goodwin and Pierre Garcon running intermediate dig routes (which was weird, as it put two receivers in the same area). The combination of both Cowboys linebackers biting hard on the fake handoff and both Cowboys safeties backpedaling from their already deep alignment allowed both 49ers receivers to get wide open in the deep middle zone. C.J. Beathard chose Goodwin for the target, and Goodwin was able to outrun safety Jeff Heath for 24 yards after the catch.
2017 Week 6 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Goodwin's first target didn't come until midway through the second quarter. He was open on a dig route with a free release off the line, but Brian Hoyer's pass was too far high and inside. Goodwin made a diving effort, but couldn't hold on when he contacted the ground. His third target was a carbon copy of that play from snap to whistle (except for the name of his quarterback), but this time Goodwin held on for an acrobatic catch. His third and final deep target fell incomplete, as Goodwin was unable to get open on a deep out route against cornerback Quinton Dunbar.
2017 Week 5 vs IND (11 / 5 / 116 / 0 rec)
Goodwin may have ended up with over 100 receiving yards, but he only had a handful of notable plays. On San Francisco's opening drive, which ultimately produced a field goal, Goodwin made up for an unnecessary hold that nullified Carlos Hyde's 10-yard run by converting a 2nd-and-19 into a first down on the ensuing play. Next, Goodwin set the 49ers up for a field goal at the end of the half by beating Vontae Davis' off-man coverage on his deep out route, and snatching the ball away from Davis in midair. Finally, with the 49ers down 14 in the fourth quarter, they started their drive with two completions to Goodwin. On the first, Goodwin went uncovered down the seam for 20 yards. On the second, he made a great diving catch against double coverage for 51 yards to set up his team's first touchdown in nearly nine quarters.
2017 Week 4 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Before leaving the game with what was reported to be a "head and eye" injury near the end of the first quarter, Goodwin beat Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson for a reception on a deep out route and slipped at the top of a deep comeback route, which nearly resulted in a red zone interception. It wasn't clear when or how the injury occurred, even from the coaches' film of his 9 snaps.
2017 Week 3 vs LAR (5 / 2 / 62 / 0 rec)
Goodwin was targeted on San Francisco's first play of the game, which is a good sign. He wasn't targeted again until the end of the third quarter, which isn't a good sign at all, but said target was a 50-yard completion in which Goodwin made a leaping catch against double coverage from cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman and safety Maurice Alexander, so that's a good sign. Goodwin's final target of the game came in the red zone during San Francisco's last-gasp comeback attempt and resulted in a toe-tapping catch along the sideline that was initially ruled incomplete, but was overturned after replay; a great individual effort and another good sign.
2017 Week 2 vs SEA (6 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Goodwin was targeted on San Francisco's first pass play of the game. He beat Richard Sherman's man coverage to get open 20 yards downfield, but Brian Hoyer overthrew him. He was also targeted on San Francisco's first play of the second half. Goodwin's third target (and first reception) came on 3rd-and-2 later in the drive, beating Sherman (inside) once again. On a drive later in the third quarter, Goodwin was targeted once again on third down.
2017 Week 1 vs CAR (6 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Goodwin got one good deep shot from Hoyer that he couldn't haul in and was overthrown on another that he had at least a step on his opponent. Later he was featured more as a short-range receiver and even got a red zone target in the end zone. Goodwin was getting a big cushion on an easy first-down creating reception and looks like he'll be a steady part of the gameplan every week.
