Goodwin is San Francisco's WR1 and flashed solid chemistry with Jimmy Garoppolo. Suspended for the first four weeks but Edelman is a target hog who has weekly WR1/2 value in PPR leagues.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
The WR10 after Jimmy Garoppolo took over San Francisco's QB gig, Goodwin caught 29 of 43 targets for 384 yards in those five fruitful games. Before prorating those stats over a salivating 16 games, remember that this sample also occurred without Pierre Garcon. Goodwin registered 349 yards in half a season with Garcon and 613 yards in the other half without him. The younger Goodwin is a far superior deep threat, but he must leverage that into more than two TDs to override the potential volume loss. If missing all of 2017 with a torn ACL wasn't enough to curtail his stock, Edelman's return must wait until he serves a four-game suspension for a PED violation. Extend 2016's 14.4 PPR PPG to a dozen bouts, and his 172.8 points would have made him last year's WR30. That matches his current ADP, so the price barely bakes in any risk of a 32-year-old possession receiver returning from a major knee injury.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
No longer just a deep-ball specialist, emerged with 16th-best FAN PTS at WR in 2nd half of '17 - reports this summer have consistently called him out as Jimmy G's clear go-to guy, a good spot to be in this expected pass heavy offense 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 The suspension hurts, but he's going to play 13 games still and a healthy Edelman carries value - esp in PPR formats
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Goodwin was quite impressive to close the season with Jimmy G, but keep in mind that he did it all with Garcon out of the lineup and versus some of the worst secondaries in football. He still has value, of course, but should not be considered as a reliable WR3 quite yet.Edelman is suspended for the first four games of the season, so his draft stock has fallen, but when he is on the field, he tends to give WR2 numbers. If you can afford to play without him for the first four weeks then you might want to make him a target around round 10.
Christopher Ventra

 *Suspended First 4 Games*
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Goodwin is one of the tougher players to project this season, as the 49ers will be welcoming Pierre Garcon back to the lineup, they added Jerick McKinnon in free agency, and they traded up in the second-round to snag Dante Pettis. Still, Goodwin was the alpha-dog for Jimmy Garoppolo last year, totaling 51 targets, 34 receptions, 545 yards, and two touchdowns over the final seven games of the season. You have to wonder if that chemistry carries over into this season, or was it more of a "there's really no one else to throw to" scenario? There's risk with drafting him as a top-30 wide receiver, but if you get him around the WR35-40 range, you can afford to take that risk. He's looking like he is Jimmy Garoppolo's favorite target in training camp, with some suggesting WR1 potential. Don't just automatically assume that just because Edelman is returning to the field, that he's going to be the same player. He's now 32 years old and coming off a torn ACL last preseason. It's not to say he can't return and produce, but he finished as the WR22 while playing all 16 games in his age-30 season. A lot of the targets have evaporated in the Patriots offense and you have to figure that Edelman will still get every opportunity to succeed, so you don't want to write him off completely. He's obviously someone who would benefit in a PPR format. He's now been suspended for the first four games, so it's going to be difficult to hang on to him because the first month is the most important time to acquire waiver wire players. He shouldn't be drafted as a top-50 wide receiver at this point.

QB List
Speaking of improved QB play, how about the jump from Beathard (who I think is a decent QB in his own right) to Jimmy G. Man, so much more handsomeness, er, I mean TD's. Yea, that's what I meant to say. Goodwin possesses game-breaking speed and solid hands in an offense ripe with upside as Jimmy G doesn't hesitate to chuck the rock wayyyy downfield. Expect last years numbers with considerable upside, even if Pierre Garcon and rookie Dante Pettis command a good chunk of team targets.Consistently a security blanket for Brady and without a clear challenger for his role upon his return, Edelman could be the prime stash to win you your league this year if you have the luxury to do so. However, be warned: he is still coming off of an ACL injury and Belichick is known for being wildly inconsistent with his players' target share and time. All in all, just another lotto ticket for y'all.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Goodwin won't be the de facto No. 1 receiver in San Francisco, but he proved to me that he has the ability and even with Pierre Garcon back, I expect Goodwin to remain the deep threat and be in the top two for targets.Edelman will miss the first four games, which is a big chunk of the fantasy season.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Before Jimmy Garoppolo took over as starter, Marquise Goodwin saw a catchable ball on only 53% of targets (84th of 89 WR) and had a 17.2-yard aDOT (PPR WR45). With Garoppolo, Goodwin had a 14.3-yard aDOT, was PPR WR8, and his catchable target rate jumped to 76% (24th of 89 WR). @Pat_ThormanNE moved on from Welker at age 32. Edelman will be 32, off knee surgery/suspension. I like the odds JMatt takes the slot and doesn't give it back. @ClutchFantasy
Raju Byfield

Showed good chemistry with Jimmy G and should become a boom or bust weekly option as the 49ers third receiver and deep threatShould remain rock solid PPR asset when back from PED suspension
