B.J. Goodson is Projected to Have a Better Fantasy Season in 2019

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR 2019

B.J. Goodson had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the #489 ranked fantasy player this season and the #80 LB. His ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #104 LB. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 6 games he averaged 5.1 fantasy points which was higher than his start (1 FP) and his ending average (3.5 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Goodson is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 3.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 13 fantasy points. B.J. Goodson (2019 Season Projection: 44 Solo, 17 Ast, 1.1 Sacks, 1.9 INTs, 1.3 Fumrec, 4 PDs) is projected to improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #76 player at his position.
