Chris Godwin
WR - TB

Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Chris Godwin took the third-year breakout to another level last season as he finished with career-highs - by far- across the board. He had 86 receptions for 1,333 yards and 9 touchdowns in 14 games. Now, he will benefit from a huge upgrade at quarterback as Tom Brady takes over for Jameis Winston. The Bucs may not need to air the ball out as much this season, but Brady's offenses always pass more than they run. Godwin is going to get a ton of carries out of the slot, a position he dominated last season. The efficiency boost Brady will give the offense will compensate for the lower passing volume and air yards.One of the key players of the NFL offseason has been DeAndre Hopkins who forced a trade from the Texans to the Cardinals before receiving a massive 2-year extension from the team that will make him the highest-paid non-quarterback in the NFL. Hopkins is arguably the best receiver in the NFL, but historically, the first season for a receiver on a new team has often been disappointing. The Cardinals will spread the ball around more than the Texans did and Kyler Murray had a lower yards per attempt last season than any of Watson's three seasons. Hopkins is still an elite talent with an elite quarterback, just don't expect quite the same elite volume.

 Nuk is awesome and should thrive in Arizona, but the Cardinals may not funnel him targets like Houston did. He's a top-10 producer, but he may not crack the top-5.

Godwin had a legitimate chance to eclipse 100 receptions, 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2019 had he not suffered a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the season's final two games. (Breshad Perriman ended up catching 12 passes for 236 yards and a score in Godwin's absence.) He should remain productive with Tom Brady replacing Jamies Winston as Tampa's quarterback.This year's most notable trade acquisition, Hopkins was acquired from Houston in mid-March along with a fourth-round pick for RB David Johnson and a second-round pick. Providing Arizona with the formidable perimeter threat that was lacking in the first season of head coach Kliff Kingsbury's Air Raid offense, Hopkins will be the focal point of the Cardinals' passing game.
Elisha Twerski

Godwin was a model of consistency in 2019. In half-PPR formats, he had just three outings with fewer than double-digit fantasy points, compared to five games with more than 20. He had only two efforts where he failed to record at least 69 total yards or a score. While Tom Brady is nowhere near as aggressive at this stage as Jameis Winston was last year, Godwin could benefit from a larger market share. Since 2007, when Brady's slot guy was either Julian Edelman or Wes Welker, neither received a target share below 24.1%. Godwin's target share in 2019 was below 20%. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After an incredible start to the 2019 season, Chris Godwin had only two 100 yard games and three TDs from Week 7 onwards. That's not ideal for an elite fantasy receiver but he remained a solid weekly fantasy option. Despite his WR2 finish last year, the hype surrounding Godwin has little to do with last season and everything to do with the arrival of TB12. Brady could very well be a massive boost for Godwin as he loves those safe mid-range targets but the addition of Rob Gronkowski will have an effect on that too and is reason for caution. Ultimately, Godwin is a solid second round pickup who lacks true league-winning upside without an Evans injury.DeAndre Hopkins has long been an elite NFL receiver. Outside a frustrating 2016, he's consistently put up sensational fantasy numbers. Now with the Cardinals, he becomes a great unknown again. Kyler Murray isn't Deshaun Watson but in an offense that is trending upwards, it looks like there will be plenty of targets for Nuk to make hay. The key concern for me is whether Hopkins and Murray can develop enough chemistry during the shortened pre-season to allow the receiver to make an immediate impact. That's the key reason I'd avoid taking him in the first round of most leagues.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
NextGenStats tracks each player's usage and routes throughout every game, and I wish I could remember who posted it, but Godwin's routes were essentially the same exact ones that Bruce Arians used for Larry Fitzgerald back in Arizona. That's a very good thing. I want to do an exercise with you. Close your eyes and imagine Tom Brady dropping back to pass. What do you see? Do you see him muscling a pass towards the sideline? I didn't think so. I also saw him targeting a receiver over the middle of the field. Godwin played 63.4 percent of his snaps last year in the slot. He was second in the league in slot yards (838) behind only Cooper Kupp, and despite seeing 31 fewer slot targets than Kupp, he only finished with 15 fewer yards and the same number of touchdowns. Godwin's average depth of target was 10.4 yards last year while Mike Evans' was 15.3 yards. The average depth of target for Brady last year was 7.6 yards down the field. It's clear that Godwin should quickly become a favorite of Brady, who hates to take risks, as Godwin is a better separator than Evans. Believe it or not, there's a clear path for Godwin to finish as the WR1 in 2020. I don't say that about many receivers. He's in the tier immediately after Michael Thomas, Davante Adams, and Julio Jones.Did you know Hopkins hasn't seen less than 150 targets since way back in 2014? Now going to a Cardinals team with Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald, it's unlikely he reaches that mark. The odd offseason also hasn't given him a lot of time with new quarterback Kyler Murray. From reports, the first time the duo got together was at the end of June. Is that enough time to develop any sort of chemistry? Hopkins has played with a lot of bad quarterbacks in his time, though the only one who held him back from producing was Brock Osweiler, as Hopkins finished as the No. 29 wide receiver in 2016 despite seeing 151 targets. Murray's rookie season wasn't particularly efficient (both Fitzgerald and Kirk saw over 105 targets but outside the top-36 wide receivers), but we should expect growth in year two. There is a scenario where Hopkins is a rock-solid player but not a top-five fantasy receiver, however, given his history of producing with guys like Tom Savage, TJ Yates, and Brian Hoyer, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Still, his targets will take a hit, making him a second-round pick rather than the first-round one he's been.

One of the best surprises last season, hoping Godwin can continue his consistency for 2020 in a Bucs offense pushing for a Super BowlHopkins can take the Cards offense to a new level and see how his talent stacks up in the NFC for 2020.

The perfect skillset for Tom Brady. Should see decreased target volume but increased efficiency from the GOATAvoid receivers switching teams. Even OBJ couldn't overcome it. The Cardinals offense is unique, so 'Nuk' has a chance to produce big numbers, but history tells us his ADP is dangerous

Everyone's favorite 2019 breakout, Chris Godwin is now a consensus top-10 WR and for good reason. He showed last year that he is supremely talented and that was with Jameis Winston at QB. Now that he has Tom Brady throwing him the ball the sky's the limit for Godwin in 2020. His only concern will be building a connection with Brady without any preseason snaps.You can make the argument that DeAndre Hopkins is the league's most talented WR but in terms of fantasy, I have some concerns. He is going from an offense in which he dominated target share to an offense that is based on spreading around the football. I still expect Hopkins to play great he just may not get the volume to finish as a top-3 fantasy WR.

PFF's 2nd-highest graded WR in 2019, but the Winston circus sideshow has left town - Brady, Gronk and winning could be elements that lead to more conservative playHas averaged more than 100 catches the past 5 seasons and moves into the go-to role in Cards' pass-friendly attack - should be at least business as usual in ARI

If Julian Edelman can average over 150 targets and be a WR1 with Tom Brady, imagine what Chris Godwin, the taller, faster, more athletic, younger WR can do. Do not overthink it.

Godwin had a breakout season with 1,333 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2019. If he stays healthy, the sky is the limit for the 24-year old wide receiver, although QB Tom Brady does provide some question marks given his age and lack of arm strength in New England at the end of last season.Hopkins slipped in 2019, he averaged only 11.2 yards per reception and he tallied only 7 touchdowns. He could have a new lease on life in Arizona playing with QB Kyler Murray. Hopkins is still an elite WR1.

Godwin was the steal of the draft last season and was one of the key components to many people winning fantasy championships. With Tom Brady behind center now, Godwin shouldn't see any drop-off in targets at all and should become Brady's favorite target very quickly. Godwin has top-5 potential again this season and is one of the safer picks in the entire draft this year.Hopkins will have a change of scenery in 2020, but that doesn't mean that we should expect a significant drop-off in production. Hopkins may not see the overall target totals that he has in years past, but he's still connected to a dynamic offense and will see plenty of scoring opportunities. Hopkins is a locked-in WR1 this season yet again.

Last season Chris Godwin finished as the WR2 in PPR leagues. He did that while being 17th amongst WRs with 121 targets. @DaltonGuruFFDeandre Hopkins 2019: Age 27, 150 targets, 104 receptions, 1183 yards, 7 TDs, 18 ppr/ppg DLF ADP: 1.07 (WR2). Since 2009, only 26.0% of WRs to average 10+ PPG and then change teams have improved their PPG in the following season. Change the PPG threshold to 12 and that number drops to 20.9%. At 15 it's 0.0%. Hopkins posted 111 - 1521 - 11 TDs with Hoyer, Mallett, Yates and Weeden.

I don't really know what to do with this but Godwin only had 1 less catchable deep ball than Evans last year with 300/2 coming off the deep ball vs Mike Evans 407/3. I think this might show the reliance on the deep ball for Evan's is overblown, while being just as big of a hit for Godwin.ARZ in year 1 with Kyler and Kliff: 554 ATT. ATL led the league with 684 ATT. Other top teams ranged from 633 to 589 in the top 12. So PERHAPS some upward mobility of 30-70 ATT in 2020. Distribution in 2019: Kirk 108 Fitz 109 RBS 103 This leaves plenty of space for Hopkins to still dominate. Smaller pieces will get their small shares but NUK is fine as far as I'm concerned. And how about that RB share? Might run into a similar problem as OBJ, when he left NY. Nuk had a heavy 29% market share in Houston last year(2nd best in the league). The leading target getter of every week over the course of the season in ARZ last year had a target share of 25%. This was an argument with OBJ going to CLE, and the love he got from Eli vs the unknown of CLE. We made the crossroads point of good players earning more targets but OBJ did not overcome, Nuk might not overcome in ARZ. A 25% target share would still be very good for Nuk, just not the volume he enjoyed over his time in Houston. Could theoretically be a 13% knock in production from opportunity. All just made up numbers but we're looking for reasons to knock players down in this area, not highlight why we know they're good.

Brady LOVES his slot weapons, so Godwin seems to stay steadier in fantasy value than Evans.Love his fit in Arizona's Air Raid. No reason for him to regress, if anything his weekly volume should be even more secure. The PERFECT fit as a broken play 50/50 winner with sneaky verticality.
