Marquise Goodwin gave the Seahawks a burst of speed

The casual fan might be surprised that someone other than Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf led the team in that statistic. All good 12s know we’re talking about Marquise Goodwin, the man who filled in admirably as the all-important third receiver. Hey, for once I was right on my prognostication when I wrote that Goodwin still had the speed to burn corners and stretch the coverage. That’s exactly what he did for Geno Smith and the Seahawks passing attack. I’ll just drop it in a little semi-handy chart below:

Player     TGT     REC       %      YDS     AVG     1D    TD     %1D     %TD

Metcalf  141      90     63.8   1048    11.6     47     6       52.2      6.7

Lockett  117       84    71.8    1033   12.3     50     9        59.5   10.7

Goodwin  42      27     64.3      387   14.3     18      4       66.7   14.8

The point is not that Goodwin was as valuable as Lockett or Metcalf. But per play, he definitely held his own. He more than held his own. Those percentages for first downs and touchdowns are per catch, not per target. The best news is that production costs the Hawks a whopping $1.27 million. Even better, they went into the deal with virtually no risk as only $152,500 was guaranteed. Those are the kind of deals that build winning teams.
