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 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.
