Mike Goodson has been a missing man throughout the Jets training camp. He'll remain absent from the field during the first four weeks of the season even as he rejoins the team. As New York announced Goodson's return on Monday, the team also revealed he will be suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. In May, he was arrested and charged with drugs and weapons possession after police officers found Goodson and a companion passed out in a car.
Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are the Jets primary running backs with Ivory the favorite to dominate touches. He's also likely to miss games with injuries, which is why Goodson had the look of a top-40 RB until his personal life got, um, complicated. Only Ivory owners should even contemplate drafting Goodson and even then only in deep league and then don't. If Ivory/Powell struggle early on, then Goodson becomes a potential waiver wire addition.
