Mike Goodson will not play on Sunday: Fantasy implications

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Oakland Raiders running back Mike Goodson did not practice this week with a high ankle spain and will not play on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders running back Mike Goodson did not practice this week due to a high ankle sprain he suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Nov. 4 and will not play on Sunday according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune. Goodson and starting running back Darren McFadden both suffered the same injury against the Bucs, causing them to miss the Nov. 11 game against the Ravens.

With both Goodson and McFadden out on Sunday, the Raiders will turn to Marcel Reece to carry the load against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Analysis: Although Goodson had a couple decent games this season, it is unlikely you were relying on him in your lineup. Goodson would have had value with McFadden injured, but now Marcel Reece is the only Oakland running back with considering.

There is no real reason to have Goodson take up a roster spot, cut him and find someone who will actually see the field.
