Fantasy Impact:

Instead, Godwin will play the 2021 season on the franchise tag and he and the Buccaneers will re-enter negotiations ahead of the 2022 season. Sources say the Bucs value Godwin as a core player on offense and will work to strike a long-term deal with him after the 2021 season. With Godwin, Mike Evans, and Antonio Brown, Tampa Bay has one of the most formidable wide receiver groups in the NFL.
