Mike Goodson is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Goodson (hamstring) was limited on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday against the Steelers.

Analysis: Goodson popped up on the injury report on Friday with a hamstring injury, so he may have sustained it during practice. It's a little unclear of how questionable he really is and fantasy owners even in really deep leagues shouldn't be counting on starting him. However, the former Panther has run away with the backup job and is the handcuff for McFadden owners. Coordinator Greg Knapp has a tendency to run his backs into the ground, so there's a lot of upside here as a roster stash in 12-team leagues.
