Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
Chris Godwin Note

Godwin has cleared the concussion protocol and will be back on the field for Week 3. He should immediately regain his status as a top-10 wide receiver in fantasy, if not top-five. Start him with confidence.

Mike Evans Note

Evans looked just fine in Week 2 after battling a hamstring injury coming in, catching seven of 10 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown. Tom Brady doesn't hesitate to look his way, so fantasy managers should value him as a top-10 option going forward, and start him each and every week without hesitation.

Leonard Fournette Note

The Bucs were looking for a reason to go away from Ronald Jones, and he gave them one in Week 2 when he fumbled. From that point, we saw Fournette play more of a featured role, including a long run that clinched the win over the Panthers. With Tom Brady struggling a bit, Fournette and the run game could be leaned on heavily moving forward. He should be viewed as a high-end RB3 with upside.

Ronald Jones II Note

Jones had a very solid Week 1 against a tough Saints run defense, so much so that he's almost certainly earned himself the biggest piece of the running back pie going forward. He's always a missed blitz pickup or a fumble away from losing time, but so long as he has the job, he's a solid Flex play, particularly in soft matchups.

Rob Gronkowski Note

If you were hoping for a resurgence from Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, it seems extremely unlikely at this point. He's sharing snaps with O.J. Howard and has just four targets through two games. It's even worse considering Mike Evans was less than 100 percent in Week 1 and Chris Godwin was out in Week 2, which should have led to more targets. I'd rather take the upside in Howard at this point.

O.J. Howard Note

There are few players who have seen such a disconnect between their perceived talent and their fantasy value as Howard. Bruce Arians' system has never been friendly to tight ends, and even if it were, Howard now has to contend with Rob Gronkowski and not just Cameron Brate at the position. Howard has the skill to be an impact tight end, but absent an injury to Gronkowski, there's just no path for him this year. Hold onto him in dynasty formats, but ignore him for redraft purposes.
