Archie Goodwin has earned a spot in the Suns rotation with his recent play.
Goodwin has been the first man off the Suns bench in three of the past four games and head coach Jeff Hornacek sounds like he's going to stick with that trend. "He’s played pretty well through the preseason and practices," Hornacek said. "He’s earned the opportunity." While Goodwin isn't the safest add, he's worth a look in deeper leagues as long as he's getting minutes. Nov 17 - 12:15 PM

Archie Goodwin played 29 minutes on Saturday against the Nuggets with 12 points, five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He looks to be the third guard for now with Ronnie Price (concussion) out and played 11 minutes in the first half. Goodwin's offensive game isn't really up to snuff, so his fantasy ceiling is pretty low.

Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek said Archie Goodwin is in the mix for minutes off the Suns bench.

Goodwin was the first player off the Suns bench on Sunday, but didn't do much offensively before being replaced by Devin Booker. "Those guys will step up and figure out who gets those minutes," Hornacek said. We'll have to wait and see how this situation shakes out, but neither player should be owned in standard fantasy leagues.

The Suns have exercised Archie Goodwin's rookie option.

While Goodwin has potential, his fantasy value is limited to deeper league as long as he's stuck behind Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to ignore Goodwin unless the Suns suffer a backcourt injury.

Archie Goodwin will likely start Tuesday's preseason game vs. the Rockets.

Brandon Knight, T.J. Warren, Markieff Morris and Jon Leuer will join Goodwin in the starting unit, and this is what starting lineups can look like during the preseason. Goodwin can be an exciting athlete to watch, but playing behind Eric Bledsoe (illness) and Knight really limits his value to deeper leagues.

Archie Goodwin scored 20 points with two 3-pointers, six rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

Goodwin shot 6-of-10 from the field with two 3-pointers and can basically score at will in the Summer League. He averaged 16.2 minutes after the All-Star break last year and should be the first guard off the Suns' bench, but his fantasy value is stifled while Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe are healthy.

Archie Goodwin scored 22 points against the Wizards on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

His offense is starting to come around and it showed some flashes towards the end of last season. Goodwin still needs to work on his J, but he's getting better at the other stuff as an offensive weapon. He should have a very strong showing in Vegas.

Archie Goodwin made another fill-in start for the Suns on Tuesday, finishing a loss to the visiting Clippers with 18 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

Goodwin shot 6-of-11 from the field and the only negatives were 4-of-7 free throws and a game-high five turnovers. His upside may be capped if both Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight are healthy for Phoenix in 2015-16, but Goodwin has at least emerged as a legitimate 'watch' candidate heading into next year's fantasy drafts -- especially if Knight goes elsewhere as a restricted free agent.

Archie Goodwin was a last-second fill-in with the Suns' starting unit on Sunday, posting 11 points with four rebounds and one block in 29 minutes.

The bad news is that he shot 5-of-15 without any 3-pointers, assists or steals, and he turned the ball over three times. The Suns were forced to go small with both Alex Len (ankle) and Brandon Wright (foot) out of commission, and Goodwin would be an intriguing spot-starter if Phoenix goes small again on Tuesday. Stay tuned.
Apr 12 - 9:59 PM

Archie Goodwin played well off the bench in his 26 minutes against the Kings with 15 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and one turnover.

His 15 points were a season high and his four best total of his career -- he scored 29 in the season finale last season. Brandon Knight (ankle) is getting close to a return, so it's hard to add Goodwin right now. He's still been very impressive in the past couple weeks.
Mar 26 - 2:56 AM

Archie Goodwin played 15 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Thursday with 10 points, one rebound and one turnover.

He didn't have a bad game, but the Suns went with a bigger lineup to attack a weakness of the Pelicans. Goodwin doesn't have a high upside to begin with, so he's only a low-end add in deep leagues. T.J. Warren scored six points with three rebounds in 18 minutes.
Mar 20 - 12:38 AM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he likes Archie Goodwin's defense and his ability to get to the basket on offense.

"If you're not killing us defensively, it's easier to keep you in there," Hornacek said. "As the years go on and he gets stronger and stronger, he's just going to be blowing through those guys and laying it in or dunking it. His aggressiveness put them on their heels." Goodwin is now getting minutes as a combo guard and played the entire fourth quarter against the Knicks on Sunday, finishing with seven points, four boards, five dimes and three steals in 23 minutes. He's not worth a grab in standard leagues yet, but he is negating T.J. Warren a bit. Marcus Morris is safe and should be owned in all standard leagues.
Mar 18 - 2:21 PM

Archie Goodwin will likely get the first crack at the backup point guard minutes with the Suns while Brandon Knight (ankle) is out.

There's a good chance he's strictly going to be Eric Bledsoe's backup, which means Goodwin is looking at around 10-14 minutes tonight based on how much Bledsoe is playing right now. Goodwin isn't much of a passer and he's made just 25.7 percent of his jump shots this season. He's only worth a look in very deep leagues. Expect T.J. Warren to get most of the bench minutes on the wings behind Marcus Morris and P.J. Tucker tonight.
Mar 11 - 3:10 PM

Archie Goodwin picked up a DNP-CD on Thursday.

Shockingly, coach Jeff Hornacek tightened up his rotation. The Suns may have already seen all they needed to, so Goodwin could be done for now. We'll see you in Summer League, Archie.
Feb 27 - 3:12 AM

Archie Goodwin played just six minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with one point and one rebound.

Coach Jeff Hornacek is in mad-scientist mode with his rotation right now and gave the minutes to T.J. Warren tonight. Goodwin still can't shoot and his defensive numbers have really fallen off, so he can be kept on the wire in just about all leagues.
