2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Chris Godwin is on a fast march toward elite status. He has played for three seasons, and his targets have risen each year, going from 55 to 95 to 121 (in 14 games). In 2019 he had 86 receptions for 1,333 yards and 9 touchdowns, which was good enough for the No. 2 spot in the PPR wide receiver rankings. He will be in the same offense this season, with the same coaching staff, so it certainly makes sense to project him for another great year.

He must get on the same page with his new quarterback to continue putting up such numbers, and that seems unlikely to be a problem. Overall, I see the switch to Brady both helping and hurting Godwin statistically. It helps him in that Brady loves to throw to the slot, and that's where Godwin runs most of his routes from. Godwin can become Brady's new heavily-targeted slot option in the vein of Edelman and Welker. On the other hand, the switch to Brady could hurt his stats because Brady will run the offense more efficiently, going with a slower pace of play and not turning it over 30-plus times. The constant turnovers from Winston often forced the offense into passing heavily as they attempted to come back, and this will not be the case this season. In the end, the two should offset each other, and I anticipate seeing another great season for Godwin statistically.

One other factor to consider is that Rob Gronkowski is in town, and he has been one of Brady's favorite targets in the red zone during his career. He runs some similar routes to Godwin, in particular seam and sideline routes from the slot. This could end up decreasing Godwin's touchdown rate considerably. He doesn't need to catch 9 touchdowns again to be excellent in fantasy football, but it's something to keep in mind.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Michael Thomas expected to play
Ankle / Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 8, 4:15 am

New Orleans
#Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle/hamstring) had a good and active week of practice and barring a setback, should be good to go tonight, source said. Meanwhile, #Bucs coach Bruce Arians has said WR Chris Godwin (broken finger) is expected to be on the field, as well. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We haven't seen Michael Thomas in action since Week 1. Emmanuel Sanders will also play in this game after missing the last two weeks due to being on the COVID-19 list.


Injury Chris Godwin expected to play
Caught passes on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 6, 12:22 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#GoBucs WR Chris Godwin will play Sunday against the Saints, Bruce Arians said. He caught the ball Friday for the first time since the injury. It's a manner of pain management. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Godwin caught some passes on Friday but it remains to be seen how much he will be involved. With Antonio Brown joining the receiving corps, Godwin is shaping up as risky Flex play in Week 9 against the Saints.


Injury Chris Godwin out Week 8, fractured finger
Could return Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 27, 11:00 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs WR Chris Godwin fractured his left index finger making a touchdown catch Sunday at Las Vegas that required surgery Tuesday. He will miss Monday Night’s game against the Giants. Depending on how it heals, he could return for the Week 9 game vs. New Orleans. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Antonio Brown is not eligible to play until Week 9 so Tampa Bay will move forward with Mike Evans, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson as the top three wideouts against the Giants. Both Evans (ankle) and Miller (hip) are dealing with nagging injuries.


Antonio Brown agrees to one-year deal with Tampa Bay
Likely to play in Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 23, 7:06 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Update: Antonio Brown and the Buccaneers have reached agreement on a one-year deal, per sources. Language still has to be finalized, COVID protocols passed, but Brown is likely to make his Bucs’ debut in Week 9 against the Saints. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Brown played one game in New England but only 11 days with the team before being released due to his shenanigans. Assuming he can keep his head on straight and remain active the rest of the season, his arrival in Tampa Bay is going to ding the fantasy ceilings of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Brown should be considered a WR3 for time being.


Injury Scotty Miller expected to play, Evans questionable
Evans will test ankle in pre-game warmups
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 8, 1:34 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#Bucs are expecting WR Scotty Miller (hip/groin) to play tonight. They’re pretty optimistic that WR Mike Evans (ankle) will go as well. Both listed a questionable. Evans hasn’t run but will test it in pre-game much like he did at New Orleans. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Evans will give it a go unless there a setback in pre-game warmup. The Bucs are already without Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (shoulder). Miller is a nice PPR play this week given the limited options for Brady.


Injury Leonard Fournette, Godwin ruled out for Week 4
Wait and see on Scotty Miller
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 2, 12:24 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Both Leonard Fournette and Chris Godwin are officially out for Sunday against the Chargers. They’re waiting to see on Scotty Miller. (Jenna Laine on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Miller did some work on Friday and has a chance to play but fantasy owners should follow his status over the weekend. With Fournette out, Ronald Jones is a solid RB2 option this week against the Chargers. LeSean McCoy could see increase in usage but remains off the fantasy radar.


Injury Chris Godwin nursing hamstring injury
Just returned from concussion he suffered in opener
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 28, 7:30 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
WR Chris Godwin is getting an MRI today on his hamstring. He was ruled out quickly after getting hurt against the #broncos (NFL Network - James Palmer)

FFToday's Take: Godwin had a dream season in 2019, but he's off to a rough start physically in 2020. He missed Week 2 with a concussion he suffered in the opener before this injury sidelined him Sunday. Fantasy owners should expect be without him in what would be a tough matchup against the Chargers in Week 4, but even a limited practice by Friday would leave some hope that he could go. Owners should make alternative plans in case he doesn't get great news or make significant progress throughout the week.


Chris Godwin cleared for Week 3
Suffered concussion late in season opener
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 21, 6:45 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#Bucs coach Bruce Arians says Chris Godwin passed the concussion protocol and he is good to go for Denver. (Tampa Bay Time - Rick Stroud)

FFToday's Take: It's been a rough start for Tom Brady pass-catchers as Mike Evans was slowed by a hamstring injury in Week 1 and Godwin being sidelined in Week 2. All three should be just fine to take advantage of a decimated Denver defense in Week 3, and it wouldn't be overly surprising if both wideouts posted top 15-20 numbers at their position for the week.


Injury Chris Godwin listed as Doubtful
Returned to practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 18, 3:15 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tight end Antony Auclair is officially out against the Panthers. Chris Godwin is doubtful. Bruce Arians said he'll consider bringing someone up from the practice squad. Tanner Hudson does play special teams and that player's primary job Sunday would be special teams. (Jenna Laine on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Godwin did return to practice on Friday but is officially listed as Doubtful. Mike Evans did end up playing last week after initially being listed as Doubtful, but returning from a concussion requires more hurdles to jump. It's looking like Godwin will sit which should give more playing time to Justin Watson. Mike Evans is in the WR1 and Scotty Miller is viable Flex option.


Injury Chris Godwin in concussion protocol
Showed up Wednesday with symptoms
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 16, 2:16 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Pro Bowl wide receiver Chris Godwin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is experiencing delayed-onset symptoms after a hit to the head Sunday and is in the concussion protocol for Week 2, coach Bruce Arians said. "He did not show any symptoms Monday or Tuesday and then showed up today with some, so we're gonna be very, very cautious with that," Arians said Wednesday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: On a good note, Mike Evans was able to practice on Wednesday. Godwin has a few days to clear the concussion protocol. Scotty Miller posted a 5-73 line in Week 1.


Injury Mike Evans listed as Doubtful
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 11, 4:00 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is listed as doubtful for Sunday's season opener against the New Orleans Saints because of a hamstring injury. Evans was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday after not participating at all on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Bucs will be without one their key weapons in a marquee matchup against the Saints. Arians is classifying him as a gametime decision but players listed as Doubtful very rarely make it on the field for gameday. Justin Watson and Scotty Miller will pickup the slack. Expect to see Rob Gronkowski and Chris Godwin targeted heavily on Sunday.


Injury Mike Evans uncertain for Week 1
Soft tissue injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 9, 2:17 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans has an undisclosed soft tissue injury that could jeopardize his availability to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Coach Bruce Arians described Evans' status as day-to-day. "We'll take it all the way to the wire with him," Arians said of Evans. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Evans is going to be a true gametime decision making it difficult for fantasy owners to trust him in Week 1. If he sits, Chris Godwin and the trio of tight ends (Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate) could all be standout plays. Justin Watson and Scotty Miller would likely fill in the gap at receiver left by Evans.
