After collecting 32 yards on three carries and nine yards on his only catch of the day in Monday's victory over Atlanta, Goodson could see a larger role in the run game this week against the Steelers. He's got pass-catching ability, and the Jets will need their backs to catch a few balls to counter Pittsburgh's pass rush.
Now that he's back from his suspension due to an offseason arrest, Goodson's going to need to do good work to win a larger role in the Jets' offense. He was in on only 11 snaps in his Week 5 debut, but that figure continues to grow, as he should easily leapfrog Alex Green and perhaps Chris Ivory in the Jets' RB hierarchy. However, Bilal Powell should continue to see the majority of the touches for now, so Goodson is more of a speculative add than a plug-and-play, especially against the Steelers' tough defense.
