WR - TB
Week 3 Outlook
Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 4-of-5 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Falcons.
While Godwin's target share dropped from Week 1, he still managed to produce a quality fantasy outing. Still, Godwin should be considered Tom Brady's top target at wideout out of the slot. Godwin will get the Rams in Week 3.
Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 9-of-14 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's Week 1 win over the Cowboys.
Godwin led the Buccaneers with 14 targets, six more than Rob Gronkowski's eight and seven more than Antonio Brown and Leonard Fournette, who both had seven. Mike Evans logged the fewest targets (6) of fantasy-relevant Tampa Bay pass-catchers. You don't get points for targets, but you do get them for production. Godwin had that too, dropping a 9/105/1 line on the Cowboys. Godwin also missed another big play opportunity late in the game. Godwin gets the Falcons at home in Week 2.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Bucs WR Chris Godwin was a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough, and appears on track to play Thursday night.
Godwin popped up on the injury report earlier in the week with the quad issue, but Schefter adds that he is "ready to go" in the season opener. Fantasy managers should feel confident rolling out Godwin as a high-end WR2 with upside against a new-look Dallas defense with a lot to prove.
Bucs WR Chris Godwin (quad) was listed as a "limited" participant for Tuesday's practice.
Godwin was suddenly added to today's injury report, which is concerning when you factor in the Bucs playing on Thursday night this week. This isn't time to panic, though. It's encouraging that Godwin was still able to practice at all, though it's worrisome that this is the first we're hearing of this quad issue. Wednesday's update will be telling. To be safe, fantasy managers should get a backup plan in place.
According to sources, star WR Chris Godwin and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not expected to reach an agreement on a long-term extension ahead of Thursday’s deadline.
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.
