Goodwin caught two passes for 13 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 21 receptions for 313 yards and a touchdown.
Analysis: When the Bears were dealing with injuries at wide receiver, Goodwin had a two-game stretch in which he totaled 104 yards and a touchdown, but otherwise, he averaged less than 20 yards per game over the rest of the campaign. In each year since 2017, he's failed to post 400 receiving yards, and the 31-year-old will likely remain a rotational player going forward. It's unlikely he'll be a consistent fantasy option unless his situation changes drastically. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Goodwin was targeted twice but posted no statistics in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.
Analysis: Goodwin has caught just two passes over the last three games, and he'll likely have very few opportunities to produce in Week 18 against the Vikings.

Goodwin (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Analysis: Goodwin was added to the Week 17 injury report after he failed to practice Thursday due to the illness, but his return to the field Friday as a full participant clears the way for him to suit up Sunday. The wideout made his return from a three-game absence due to a foot injury in last week's win over Seattle, playing 22 snaps on offense (32 percent) and finishing with two catches for 23 yards on two targets. He could see a slight bump in his snap count Sunday now that the foot injury is further in the rear-view mirror.

Goodwin didn't participate in Thursday's practice session due to an illness.
Analysis: Goodwin returned from a foot injury in Sunday's Week 16 matchup against Seattle and hauled in both of his targets for 23 yards. He fully participated in practice Wednesday but was unable to take the field Thursday. His participation in Friday's practice session could help reveal his status ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants.

Goodwin caught two passes for 23 yards in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.
Analysis: With Darnell Mooney and David Montgomery seeing more than half of Nick Foles' passing attempts, there was very little left to go around, and Goodwin was one of five Bears to see two or three targets. With four or fewer targets in all but one game he's played this season, he'll have the potential for a low-floor scoring performance in Week 17 against the Giants.
Dec 26, 2021 5:20 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) is listed as active Sunday at Seattle, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Goodwin set himself up for his first game action since Week 12 with back-to-back full practices to end the week. Now that it's official, he'll be a part of a receiving corps without Allen Robinson (COVID-19) and Jakeem Grant (concussion). Expect Darnell Mooney, Goodwin and Damiere Byrd to handle most of the WR reps for the Bears in Week 16.
Dec 26, 2021 11:40 AM EST
Goodwin (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Seattle.
Analysis: Goodwin last played Week 12 at Detroit, but he practiced in full Thursday and Friday this week. That seems to give him a good chance of making his return to the field to face the Seahawks on Sunday. It's unclear if Allen Robinson will be able to move off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for that contest, so Goodwin could be a big part of the passing game if he is indeed able to suit up.
Dec 24, 2021 12:07 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) practiced fully Thursday.
Analysis: After handling every practice rep for the first time since sustaining a foot injury in a Thanksgiving Day win at Detroit, Goodwin is poised to put an end to a three-game absence. The Bears' top WR Allen Robinson (undisclosed) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Goodwin could be in line for a bigger snap share Sunday at Seattle if the former is unable to clear league protocols. Currently, Darnell Mooney and Damiere Byrd are the only other healthy wide receivers on the active roster.
Dec 23, 2021 2:44 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) was a limited participant at Wednesday's walkthrough.
Analysis: This marks the second time Goodwin has been listed as limited on a Bears practice report since picking up a foot injury during a Thanksgiving Day win at Detroit. It's unclear if he's closing in on ending a three-game absence, but his activity on the field Thursday and Friday may provide some insight into his potential to return Sunday in Seattle.
Dec 22, 2021 2:35 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) is inactive for Monday's game against the Vikings.
Analysis: Goodwin has practiced just one time since injuring his foot on Thanksgiving Day in Detroit and will miss his third contest in a row as a result. With Goodwin sidelined again and Allen Robinson (undisclosed) not eligible to play due to residing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant, Dazz Newsome and Nsimba Webster will serve as the Bears' wide receivers Monday.
Dec 20, 2021 4:09 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) is listed as doubtful for Monday's contest against the Lions.
Analysis: Goodwin hasn't practiced all week so this isn't exactly a surprise. Expect Jakeem Grant and Damiere Byrd to see a healthier workload in the event Allen Robinson is unable to return off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for Monday's game.
Dec 18, 2021 1:20 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) didn't participate in Friday's practice.
Analysis: With two absences from practice to begin Week 15 prep, Goodwin will likely need to get back on the field in some fashion Saturday to have a realistic shot at playing Monday against the Vikings. While Goodwin has been out the past two games, Jakeem Grant and Damiere Byrd have both been able to pick up extra reps at receiver alongside Darnell Mooney and Allen Robinson (reserve/COVID-19 list).
Dec 17, 2021 2:46 PM EST
Goodwin (illness) was absent from Thursday's walkthrough ahead of the Bears' Monday Night Football matchup with the Vikings.
Analysis: The wide receiver may have been held out of the walkthrough out of an abundance of caution as Allen Robinson (undisclosed) was put on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday as well as Jakeem Grant (illness) not available. Regardless of if he is actually ill or not, Goodwin still has two more practices to prove his health before the team's contest versus the Vikings on Monday.
Dec 16, 2021 3:12 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) is listed as inactive Sunday at Green Bay.
Analysis: Since injuring his foot on Thanksgiving Day in Detroit, Goodwin has logged only one limited practice and now will sit out for a second straight contest. With the nine-year pro sidelined, the Bears will roll with Allen Robinson, Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant at wide receiver.
Dec 12, 2021 3:54 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Analysis: Barring an unexpected improvement with his foot injury, Goodwin will sit out for a second consecutive game. He was unable to practice in any capacity Thursday nor Friday after getting in a limited session Wednesday. On a positive note for Chicago's receiving corps, fellow wideout Allen Robinson (hamstring) is good to go after a full practice Friday.
Dec 10, 2021 11:32 AM EST
Goodwin (foot) was absent from Thursday's practice.
Analysis: The wide receiver was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice prior to taking a step back Thursday, putting his availability for Week 14 in question. Goodwin has only practiced once since suffering the foot injury on Thanksgiving and if he is forced to miss a second straight contest Sunday, Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant will once again step into larger roles.
Dec 9, 2021 3:19 PM EST
Goodwin (foot) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
Analysis: This marks the first time Goodwin has practiced in any capacity since suffering a foot injury that kept him out for Week 13's contest against the Cardinals - his first absence this season. Fellow wideout Allen Robinson (hamstring) also returned to practice as a limited participant Wednesday. This is positive news for the Bears, who could have all three of their top wide receivers available Sunday against the Packers alongside Justin Fields (ribs) after the rookie quarterback missed the last two games.
Dec 8, 2021 3:45 PM EST
Goodwin (foot/ribs) won't play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Analysis: Goodwin was unable to practice at all throughout the week, culminating in the veteran wide receiver's first absence of the season. With Allen Robinson (hamstring) doubtful, the Bears will be down to Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant at wide receiver against Arizona unless Robinson suits up or the team elevates somebody from the practice squad.
Dec 3, 2021 11:46 AM EST
Goodwin (foot/ribs) has held out of practice Thursday.
Analysis: This marks Goodwin's second absence in a row to kick off Week 13 prep, the result of a pair of injuries. He joined Allen Robinson (hamstring) as non-participants, leaving Darnell Mooney as the healthiest of the Bears' top three wide receivers. Friday's practice report could clarify the state of Chicago's receiving corps heading into the weekend.
Dec 2, 2021 2:17 PM EST
Goodwin (foot/ribs) didn't practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Goodwin is also dealing with a rib injury in addition to the foot injury that knocked him out of the Thanksgiving Day victory over Detroit. It's a bit worrisome that the veteran wideout still isn't practicing nearly a full week later, but Goodwin will have two more opportunities to raise his participation level before Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
