Even though DeSean Jackson is the better asset, it doesn't mean that Godwin can't give you value himself. Earlier this offseason, offensive coordinator Todd Monken said that Godwin has earned the opportunity to be a starting wide receiver. This will kick Adam Humphries off the field and create quite the nasty threesome of Godwin, Jackson, and Mike Evans. Over the final four games of 2017, Godwin was able to haul in at least 68 yards in three of them, including 111 yards and a touchdown in Week 17.

Chris Godwin to start for the Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat writer Trevor Sikkema is reporting that offensive coordinator Todd Monken has said that second-year wide receiver Chris Godwin has "earned the opportunity to begin the season as a starting receiver."

Fantasy Impact

This is huge news for Godwin, who came on late in the 2017 season, finishing with at least 68 yards in three of the final four games of the season, including a seven-catch, 111-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 17. This means Godwin will play primarily out of the slot and kick Adam Humphries out of the starting lineup. Some may be worried about DeSean Jackson, but this likely means that Godwin will play primarily out of the slot, with Jackson and Mike Evans sliding in there about 20 percent of the time each. Some will wonder just how many targets Godwin can get as the No. 3 receiver, but it's worth noting that Humphries totaled 166 targets over the last two seasons, which ranks 45th among all wide receivers. Godwin is likely to start the season in WR5 territory, but present upside for more. He's shaping up as an excellent best-ball target for those who are drafting early.
