Chris Godwin
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2018 Fantasy Outlook
After doing nothing for the first eight games of his career, Godwin saw increased work in the second half of his rookie season, and the results were promising - 15.4 YPC, 9.5 YPT. From Weeks 10-17, he had four games of 68 or more yards and showed the ability to stretch the field. Godwin exploded for 111 yards and a touchdown Week 17, the second time he exceeded 10 targets. At 6-1, 209, and with 4.42 speed, Godwin is bigger and faster than most wideouts, and he's also quick and athletic. The biggest issue for Godwin is the presence of Mike Evans entrenched as the team's target hog, along with DeSean Jackson who is still the fastest wideout on the team and its most dangerous deep threat. But Bucs GM Jason Licht indicated Godwin showed enough to push for a bigger role, and the team raved about Godwin at OTAs, so there's a good chance he supplants slot man Adam Humphries in three-wide formations. Just be aware that the Tampa Bay offense is likely to struggle in September, as Jameis Winston will be suspended the first three weeks for games against the Saints, Eagles and Steelers.

Godwin (toe) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Godwin was limited earlier in the week with a toe injury. He's cleared to play Monday night against the Steelers, but the toe issue will be something to bear in mind when considering him as a potential fantasy play.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Buccaneers' third-round draft pick, Godwin has a shot to see targets sooner rather than later. The Bucs receiving corps is deeper than it was last year with the addition of DeSean Jackson, but Jackson's slight frame precludes him from ever being a high-volume player, and Mike Evans can't see all of Jameis Winston's other targets. Enter Godwin, who at 6-1, 205, has decent size and good (4.42 40) speed. He also put on a show at the NFL Combine -- 36-inch vertical, 126-inch broad jump. Godwin has excellent hands and good ball skills, and this offseason trained with former Lion Calvin Johnson to work on the finer points of his game. Godwin is likely to be the team's third WR -- though he will have to beat out veteran Adam Humphries -- and both tight ends, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate, will also see looks.
