WR - TB
Week 17 Outlook
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin stated, "I want to be in Tampa. But at the end of the day, I want to get paid too." The Bucs receiver is expected to receive the franchise tag in 2021 and will reportedly work towards a long-term deal with the team in 2022.
Godwin hauled in 81 receptions for 1,072 yards and eight touchdowns, including a huge five reception, 110 yard performance against the Packers in the NFC Championship game. With the Buccaneers expected to use the franchise tag on the talented fourth-year receiver in the 2021 season, fantasy managers can expect Godwin to take on a similar WR1/WR2 role alongside Mike Evans. It also helps to have legendary QB Tom Brady returning to the helm after establishing continuity during the team's successful Super Bowl title run in 2020.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught two of four targets for nine yards in a 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
Godwin was held in check throughout Super Bowl LV, although the Buccaneers found a rhythm with their running game and success with Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown through the air to quickly put the game out of reach on Sunday. Tampa Bay is expected to work on signing Godwin back to a new contract or utilizing the franchise tag to keep the talented receiver on the roster in 2021. Godwin went for 65/840/7 in 12 games for the Buccaneers in 2020, which will likely keep him within the second and third-round range of fantasy redraft leagues assuming he returns to Tampa Bay in 2021.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin is in the final year of his contract but is expected to return to the Buccaneers for the 2021 season with either a long-term contract or a franchise tag, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Godwin has been a stud for the Bucs since being drafted out of Penn State in the third-round of the 2017 draft, hauling in 244 receptions, 3,540 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns in the four years he's played in Tampa. Godwin had 65 receptions for 840 yards and seven touchdowns in 2020 and should be a big factor and one of Tom Brady's favorite targets at home on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
Chris Godwin caught five of nine targets for 110 yards and rushed for an additional six yards in Sunday's 31-26 victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game.
Godwin was Tom Brady's favorite target on Sunday and converted several third and long opportunities to help Tampa Bay secure their first trip to the Super Bowl since 2003. Expect Godwin to continue absorbing targets against either the Chiefs or the Bills in the Super Bowl, showcasing the elite WR1 talent he possesses. Heading into redraft leagues next season, Godwin is a fringe first-round draft pick based on the 84/840/7 line he generated alongside Mike Evans in the 2020 regular season.
Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught four of seven targets for 34 yards in a 30-20 win against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional Round on Sunday.
Godwin had a phenomenal regular season but was held in check for most of the Divisional Round matchup against the Saints. Securing 65 receptions for 840 yards and seven touchdowns in the regular season, Godwin is an explosive weapon at wideout and will have another opportunity to show his WR1 value against the Packers defense in the NFC Championship game next weekend.
