2017 Week 17 vs LAR (4 / 2 / 28 / 1 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)
Goodwin left the game at the end of the first half after being concussed by an illegal hit from safety Blake Countess. Prior to that, he was the target on three intermediate-length throws and one short throw. On a 20-yard catch in the middle of the field, Goodwin ran a deep comback against cornerback Troy Hill and gently nudged Hill downfield (read: pushed off) to gain separation at the top of his route. A second long target was incomplete because Goodwin wasn't able to get both feet in bounds along the left sideline, while another was intercepted because it Jimmy Garoppolo underthrew it. Goodwin's short target resulted in athe 49ers first touchdown of the game. Lined up in the trail position of a stacked right formation, he faked a reverse to the left, pivoted, and ran uncovered into the right flat. With his speed, Goodwin was easily able to run away from pursuing defenders and into the end zone.
2017 Week 16 vs JAX (6 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)
Predictably, Goodwin was shut down by the man-to-man coverage of Jacksonville's cornerback trio. A full two-thirds of his yardage total came on one reception, in which he motioned inside and beat Ramsey on a crossing pattern across the middle -- a middle that was completely vacated due to Jacksonville sending an all-out blitz at Jimmy Garoppolo.
2017 Week 15 vs TEN (13 / 10 / 114 / 0 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)
For the second week in a row, Goodwin had a near-flawless performance. He had a reception on just about every type of route a wide receiver runs. He beat both man and zone coverage. He had several receptions on underthrown passes, one of which he stole out of an intercepting defender's hands. Perhaps most impressive is that Goodwin's gaudy box score stats weren't achieved via what he's most known for: He didn't catch a single deep ball.
2017 Week 14 vs HOU (12 / 6 / 106 / 0 rec)
This was an all-around great performance by Goodwin. He was successful against man and zone. He did damage all across the route tree. He eluded tacklers when he caught the ball. He helped out his quarterback by coming back to the football when Garoppolo was hit as he threw (which happened frequently). The best illustration of all of these things was on Goodwin's 32-yard catch in the second quarter. Lined up wide left, he ran a dig route across the deep middle, but adjusted it so that he remained underneath Houston's Cover-3 shell. As Garoppolo was getting blasted by Jadeveon Clowney, Goodwin adjusted his route even more to come back towards the ball, thereby giving his quarterback an easier target. When he snatched the ball out of the air, he immediately eluded two defenders and used his speed to gain an extra 20 yards. One final note: Goodwin had three red zone targets in a single third-quarter drive.
2017 Week 13 vs CHI (8 / 8 / 99 / 0 rec)
Goodwin took full advantage of Chicago's decision to play soft in the secondary. He beat Kyle Fuller's off-man coverage for at least 23 total yards. He beat Prince Amakumura's off-man coverage for at least 25 more. He was covered by linebacker Sam Acho in the slot on one reception that gained 7 yards and a first down. On a handful of other plays, he essentially went uncovered for 23 total yards. The only negative of Goodwin's game was an inexcusable false start on 3rd-down in the red zone coming out of a timeout late in the second quarter.
2017 Week 12 vs SEA (6 / 4 / 78 / 0 rec)
Goodwin left the game briefly with what was reported as a foot injury, but one couldn't see -- even on the All-22 coaches film -- when or how he got hurt. Furthermore, his entire "absence" came during a Seahawks drive that spanned the end-of-the-third-quarter break, so he actually didn't even miss a snap. As he is wont to do, given his speed and role in the offense, Goodwin's main contribution came in the form of two long receptions that accounted for 57 of his 78 yards. The first was a 23-yard reception on a deep out route against Byron Maxwell's three-deep zone coverage. The second, which occurred only a few minutes of game time later, saw Goodwin use speed and route-running savvy to beat Jeremy Lane's press man coverage down the right sideline for 38 yards. That second quarter outburst could have been even bigger if C.J. Beathard didn't airmail his throw on the preceding play, which saw Goodwin beat Lane on a 17-yard out route.
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.
