2019 Fantasy Outlook
Goodson is the favorite to win the right inside linebacker job out of camp, but fifth-round rookie Ryan Connelly could push him for the job at some point this season. Goodson is a modest source of tackles, and he had two picks last year. Read Past Outlooks

Goodson agreed to terms Wednesday on a one-year contract with the Browns, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Goodson should at least temporarily slide into a starting role at middle linebacker for the Browns, who lost Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey via free agency earlier this week. The 26-year-old notched 37 tackles (23 solo) across 15 regular-season games with the Packers in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Goodson is the favorite to start at inside linebacker alongside newly signed Alec Ogletree in the team's new 3-4 alignment. It's likely Ogletree will see more snaps and lead the team in tackles, but Goodson could be useful if he secures the early-down work.
A fourth-round pick last year, Goodson barely saw the field. This year, he'll vie for the Giants starting middle linebacker job in camp, and he's even seeing work in nickel packages. Should he impress, he could stay on the field a good deal of the time and be a nice source of tackles.
Fourth-round draft pick, competing for snaps at linebacker, but it's a crowded, if unimpressive, field.
