Lineups
I hate my ranking of Julio Jones at #5, but it has more to do with how much I like the players ahead of him rather than any knock on Jones. Last year was Julio's first without at least 1,400 yards since 2013. In every seasons where he played 16 games, and even a couple where he didn't, he's finished with 1,200+ yards. Julio is arguably the most consistent and reliable player in fantasy football, especially since the Falcons attempted the most passes in the NFL last year. The only issue for Julio has been inconsistencies in the touchdown department, something that doesn't appear likely to change at this point. Still, you can't go wrong with Julio in the first round.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.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Jones disappointed fantasy owners who spent a first-round pick on him in fantasy drafts in '17, when he scored only three touchdowns. After rewarding owners that selected him in 2018 with eight touchdowns to go along with a league leading 1,676 receiving yards, his numbers slumped in 2019 before he delivered 23 catches for 300 yards and a pair of scores over Weeks 15 and 16.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.

 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
WR6, WR2, WR6, WR4, WR5, WR3. Has anyone been more reliable in fantasy over the last six years? Julio Jones continues to churn out the numbers in this high powered Falcons offence. That's despite consistently low TD numbers and serious target competition in Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper. While Ridley will undoubtedly continue to grow in this offense, Julio remains the superior player and with Hooper gone there's certainly room for both. Jones is often available early in the second round and that's spectacular value for a guy who's so reliable.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.
Mike Tagliere

Fade aging wide receivers, they said. Julio laughs as he posted his sixth straight season with more than 1,390 yards. He still has just one season under his belt with double-digit touchdowns, which is quite ridiculous when you consider he's had three seasons with 1,500-plus yards. He's as safe as they come at the wide receiver position. Think 31 years old is too old? Check out this piece on what age a wide receiver declines. There are a lot of fantasy owners drafting Tyreek Hill over him, and while I understand the upside Hill presents on a weekly basis, Jones presents stability that Hill can only dream of. Hill has posted WR2 or better numbers in 21-of-43 games (48.8 percent) over his career. Meanwhile, Jones has hit that mark in 64.8 percent of his career games and has posted WR1-type numbers in 42.4 percent of them. Sure, Calvin Ridley is going to ascend, but a lot of his ascension comes from the missing targets from Mohamed Sanu. Jones should be the No. 3 wide receiver off draft boards, at worst.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.

Big play ability, consistency and the departure of Austin Hooper means more targets for Jones & RidleyOne of the best surprises last season, hoping Godwin can continue his consistency for 2020 in a Bucs offense pushing for a Super Bowl

Julio will Julio, until Julio isn't Julio. TD rate has to increase eventually, yardage total is Jerry Rice worthy every season.The perfect skillset for Tom Brady. Should see decreased target volume but increased efficiency from the GOAT

Year in and year out Julio Jones proves to be one of the most incredible football players (not just WRs) in the NFL. His reception and yardage numbers are up there with the leagues best but unfortunately, he's always had a difficult time finding the end-zone. Only once in his nine-year career has he eclipsed 10 receiving TDs. His low TD numbers are the only reason he isn't an automatic top-3 WR.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.

With all the vacated targets from last season's ATL offense, NOLA's M. Thomas might be the only WR in 2020 to hold a candle to Jones' target volumePFF'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 play

The age defying machine. Draft with confidence, especially if you can pair him with a first round RB.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.

Jones is the model of consistency, his season has ended with him ranked 8th, 2nd, 6th, 6th, 5th, and 5th the last six seasons. He does turn 31-years old this off-season, but there is no reason to think he can't be an elite WR1 with QB Matt Ryan at the helm in 2020.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.

Julio Jones had 1394 receiving yards last season, second in the league only to Michael Thomas, and that was his LOWEST yardage output since his rookie season in 2013. You can't find a more consistent player year-over-year and at 31 years old, he certainly still has enough left in him to stay at this level for another year.

It's hard to find someone who's been as outstanding as Julio Jones over the past few years. Jones has finished as the WR5 or higher each of the past three seasons and he seems like a lock to repeat that type of performance again in 2020. This offense is going to air it out and Jones has yet to show any sign that he's losing a step at this point of his career. Feel confident in drafting Jones again as a top-5 option in 2020.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.

Matt Ryan has supported 2 Top 24 PPR WRs four times in his career. Amongst active QBs, only Aaron Rodgers has more seasons of supporting 2 Top 24 WRs. @ClutchFantasyLast season Chris Godwin finished as the WR2 in PPR leagues. He did that while being 17th amongst WRs with 121 targets. @DaltonGuruFF

A monster. 6 year average of 162 targets, 103/1565/6. Now, if I were to find some chips in the Julio armor, his yards per reception were his lowest in a full season since 2015. His yards per target were a career low. This might be the beginning of the end, but I think he gives us a few more good years before that time, he's such a freak, and if I were to bet, he won't age like your standard big WR.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.

 Brady LOVES his slot weapons, so Godwin seems to stay steadier in fantasy value than Evans.
