FantasyPros
The hype on Godwin has reached its peak as he's expected to make a splash in Bruce Arians' new offense. With Mike Evans stealing quite a large share of the targets, you have to wonder just how high the ceiling is for Godwin, as the Bucs are likely going to run the ball a bit more under Arians. Godwin is a rock-solid player, but you mustn't forget that he's the No. 2 receiver on his team, and there's also a tight end (O.J. Howard) who deserves a lot of targets by his own right. It's okay to like Godwin in 2019, but keep expectations in checkThere are not nearly as many familiar faces for Tom Brady to look at nowadays, but Edelman remains his favorite target. With Rob Gronkowski ailing last year, Edelman stepped up and finished as a WR2 or better in 75 percent of his games, a new career-high. With Gronkowski and Chris Hogan gone, Edelman's role isn't going to shrink in 2019. He's a sturdy WR2 presence
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
If it's possible for a player to be on every single fantasy owner's breakout list, then Godwin is your guy. Although his production slowed after his hot start last year, the departure of both Adam Humphries and DeSean Jackson opens up plenty of opportunities. Add to that Bruce Arians gushing about Godwin's ability to play out of the slot and you have all the makings of a big season. But you'll need to pay for Godwin at this point if you want him.Edelman was outstanding last year after returning from suspension, playing as a strong WR1 in PPR formats. He's getting up there in age but with Rob Gronkowski gone and incredible chemistry with Tom Brady, there shouldn't be many concerns. Josh Gordon's return takes a minor bit of shine off Edelman, but in any format where you are awarded anything for receptions, he will likely put up WR1 numbers.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Might be the leader in preseason buzz - 179 targets up for grabs with D-Jax, Humphries gone - he's in line for a can't fail amount of targets in a pass-rich offenseIn Half-PPR formats, he delivered 12+ FAN PTS in 10 of 12 games - He was WR14 in FAN PPG, a level he should be able to sustain in a now Gronk-less offense
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Godwin kicked into the slot all four times the Bucs went to a 3-WR formation. That slot-plus role is the same way Bruce Arians coaxed monster seasons out of Hines Ward and Larry Fitzgerald in previous stops. Already armed with unique talent and the nut situation (no running game, no viable No 3 WR, leaky defense, aggressive quarterback, plus scheme), Godwin's chances of fulfilling lofty expectations this season are rising. @AdamLevitan Jameis Winston has played 22 snaps this preseason. Chris Godwin been on field for all 22, in slot for eight of them. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Godwin was a real bright spot on this offense, posting 59 receptions for 842 yards and 7 touchdowns. He was the 25th ranked fantasy receiver last year and he has a ton of upside this year in Bruce Arian's offense that should see him have a major role. I think Godwin will evolve into one of the Top-10 fantasy receivers in the NFL.Edelman had 74 receptions for 850 yards and 6 touchdowns in 12 games last year. He sees a ton of short passes and he should maintain WR3 value this year.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Arians also loves his Slot WRs. Hines Ward was amazing for Pittsburgh in the slot and Fitzgerald was magnificent for Arizona in the slot. Even Donnie Avery in the slot in 2012 on the colts put up a 60/781/3 line with Reggie Wayne AND TY Hilton on the team! The upside here is huge. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Despite the age, Julian Edelman is lined up for what could be a career year. He was on pace to eclipse 150 targets last season if he were to play in all 16 games, and that was with Josh Gordon for some time and Gronk for some time. The Pats did not make any real splashes to boost their position players this offseason, so it is going to be all Julian Edelman again for the wideouts.

Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Seemingly everyone in the industry loves Godwin to breakout this year and for good reason. He is an immense talent and has the makeup of an elite red zone receiver. The issue is that the price tag has become so high that you will need him to reach that upside in order to justify the cost, and that will be difficult seeing that Mike Evans and O.J. Howard are both on his roster.Those expecting Edelman to outperform his ADP might be in for a surprise as he has never finished higher than WR19 in fantasy. Part of this has to do with his inability to stay on the field and at 33 years old, reversing that tendency may prove a difficult task. He comes with reliability while healthy but perhaps with a price tag too steep.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Chris Godwin will reportedly be stepping into the Larry Fitzgerald role this season in Bruce Arians' system. This will lead to an increased amount of targets for the young and talented wideout, which could mean fantasy gold at his current ADP. The Bucs are going to be airing the ball out this season and Godwin stands to be competing with Mike Evans for the majority of the targets there. Even if we see Godwin's YPR come down, he's still an extremely intriguing fantasy option and is about as solid of a WR2 option as you can get for your team. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
As per usual, I love Godwin this season. He's an incredible WR, and has produced every time he's been given the opportunity. This is the breakout season we've been waiting for. Jackson and Humphries are now gone, so it's Evans, Howard and Godwin that will be commanding the majority of the targets in Tampa's elite passing game. The return of Arians means great things for this passing attack, which already ranked first in passing yards and 4th in passing TD's per game. As if things needed to get better for Godwin...Arians has talked about using him in the slot! Arians coached the Cardinals from 2013-2017...during that stretch Larry Fitz produced 3 consecutive seasons with 105+ receptions. If Godwin is used in that same role, then he's going to finish as a low end WR 1/ high end WR 2. We've been waiting years for this moment...time to reap the fruits of our labor.Since becoming a full-time starter in 2013, Edelman has averaged 2.5 more targets, 1.25 more receptions and 15 more yards per game without gronk in the lineup. His stats sans Gronk, regressed over a full season, comes out to 181 targets / 116.8 receptions / 1,289 yards / 4.8 TD's. That stat line would have finished 10th last season. Edelman has the 13th highest projection according to my model and his projection is extremely reasonable. The biggest risk with Edelman is with his health. He's really struggled to stay healthy over his career and he's got one of the highest projections for games missed due to injury this season. Fortunately, that's the only risk he carries. He's going to produce every game he plays, and he very rarely has down games. Since 2015 he has just three total games with less than 6 targets. In those games, his stat lines were, 4/84/1, 4/53/0, 4/120/1. Edelman is coming off the board as the WR 15 in the 4th round. The only way he doesn't finish as a value is if he gets hurt, and even then, he'll still get there on a per game level, So if he's hurt for 4 weeks, then just slide in one of the million under valued receivers going late in drafts. You won't be taking a 0 for the games he misses.
