|Godwin was a trendy prospect prior to the NFL draft after some analysts ranked him inside their top 5 among wide receiver prospects, but on draft day, he slipped to the 11th WR selected. During his rookie campaign, he made a slight impact, but was only the 4th most targeted wide receiver. Early reports out of camp are that Godwin could earn a starting role on the outside because he's impressed the coaching staff. He's currently going undrafted in 12 team mock drafts so he'll be an interesting player to track during the remainder of the camp. If he can secure a consistent role, there could be late-round value in usage alone.
|Chris Godwin on the rise|
Has earned starting spot opposite Evans

|But make no mistake, Tampa Bay plans to start Godwin opposite Evans at receiver this season. The Bucs plan to make use of all four receivers. Evans, who turns 25 this month, is the only lock to be on the field the majority of snaps. Who plays depends on the opposing defensive scheme, the down and distance and the game plan.
Increasingly during training camp, Jackson has been working in the slot when the Bucs go to three receivers. On some plays, they use four. (Tampa Bay Times)|
FFToday's Take: This sounds like DeSean Jackson, Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries are all going to be used depending on the situation. While this is a nice headline for Godwin, fantasy owners shouldn't skyrocket his ADP on this news. That being said, he's largely undervalued right now and you could make a case for Godwin having more fantasy value than Jackson, especially later in the year.
