2019 Fantasy Outlook
Few players had a better offseason than Godwin - at least as far as their fantasy prospects were concerned. Both DeSean Jackson (74 targets) and Adam Humphries (105) are gone, replaced only by Breshad Perriman, an athletic 2015 first-round pick who has never quite caught on in the league. Moreover, GM Jason Licht compared Godwin's upcoming role to Larry Fitzgerald's, hinting at many of the slot snaps and targets that went to Humphries last year. Finally, head coach Dirk Koetter is gone, replaced by the more aggressive Bruce Arians, though last year's offensive coordinator and play caller Todd Monken could be missed. At 6-1, 209, Godwin has above-average size to go with 4.42 speed. He averaged a robust 8.9 YPT and 14.3 YPC on 95 targets a year ago and dropped only two passes the entire season. Mike Evans is still the team's top target and likely red-zone hog, and rising star TE O.J. Howard will chip in for big plays and looks around the goal line. But Jameis Winston will sling the ball around plenty in Arians' presumably pass-happy offense, and Godwin should set a career high in targets. Read Past Outlooks

Another stellar stat line
WRTampa Bay Buccaneers
October 13, 2019
Godwin secured 10 of 12 targets for 151 yards in the Buccaneers' 37-26 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Godwin's massive day was accomplished with excellent efficiency, with fellow wideout Mike Evans needing 17 targets to generate a 9-96 line in comparison. Despite Evans' solid line, Godwin is clearly the No. 1 receiver in the Bucs offense for all practical purposes, with his three straight 100-yard efforts and four in the last five games overall offering plenty of evidence in that regard. Godwin did fail to catch a touchdown for the first time in three games, but with 35 targets over the last three contests alone, his fantasy stock is through the roof in all formats.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
