2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
A torn ACL suffered in Week 15 of the 2021 season will give many a fantasy owner pause when it comes to ranking Godwin on their draft boards this summer. He will certainly not be ready for the start of the season, and if he's placed on the PUP list, he'll be out completely for at least the first six weeks of the season. To be honest, even if he gets back on the field sooner than later, he's not likely to even be approaching full strength until your fantasy playoffs, maybe.

Based on that info, you really can't draft Godwin as anything more than a WR2/WR3 in terms of a roster spot. But he is certainly worth the stash. As long as Tom Brady remains at QB, I might rank Godwin higher than Mike Evans. His reliable hands and precise route running skills make him a dangerous weapon on short crossers and quick slants, and also make him one of the best catch and run possession receivers. In other words, he's best at Brady's bread and butter throws. But because of all the reasons listed above, you can't overpay on draft day. The Bucs just committed to him long term. As much as HC Todd Bowles and Brady want him on the field, it's in the team's best interest to make sure he's 100%. They won't rush him.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Chris Godwin Out, Gage misses practice Friday
Bucs dealing with multiple WR injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 23, 4:12 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) and DT Akiem Hicks (foot) are out. LT Donovan Smith (elbow) TE Cade Otton (personal reasons) is doubtful. WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice Friday and is questionable. RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) was limited and questionable. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Godwin Out, Mike Evans suspended and Gage, Julio Jones and Breshad Perriman all listed as Questionable the Bucs are struggling for healthy quality receivers. Cole Beasley would have to be elevated from the practice squad on Saturday in order to play. Julio is shaping up to be a gametime decision and can't be trusted even if he does play. Perriman and Scotty Miller may get the most targets on Sunday.


Tampa Bay signs veteran WR Cole Beasley
Headed to the practice squad
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 20, 7:44 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Confirmed Bucs are signing Bills WR Cole Beasley to their practice squad. Julio Jones and Chris Godwin are injured while Mike Evans is suspended. Another vet receiver for Tom Brady, who was upset at some dropped passes Sunday, not all by receivers. @MikeGarafolo reported first. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's interesting to note that Beasley will begin on the practice squad. The team can elevate him on gameday's without having to cut somebody right now. It's doubtful Beasley is going to make any kind of immediate fantasy impact but something to keep your eye on. Scotty Miller may be the odd man out here.


Mike Evans gets one-game suspension
Unnecessary roughness with Saints’ CB Marshon Lattimore
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 19, 12:33 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
NFL suspended Buccaneers’ WR Mike Evans one game for Sunday’s unnecessary roughness with Saints’ CB Marshon Lattimore. Evans was suspended one game for a previous fracas with Lattimore in 2017. (https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter)

FFToday's Take: Evans got into it with Lattimore yesterday during the Bucs-Saints game that resulted in both players being ejected. Tampa Bay is already dealing with multiple injured receivers including Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee). We should see a lot of Breshad Perriman and Russell Gage in Week 3 against the Packers.


Injury Chris Godwin expected to miss some time, hamstring injury
Not a major injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 12, 1:46 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#Bucs WR Chris Godwin suffered a hamstring strain Sunday night and likely will miss some time, per source. There's optimism it's not a major injury, but Godwin could be sidelined a few weeks. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Godwin wore a non-contact jersey throughout training camp, got on the field Week 1 and now will seemingly miss a few weeks with a hamstring injury. Mike Evans, Julio Jones and Russell Gage will hold down the Bucs passing game until Godwin can return.


Injury Chris Godwin expected to play, could be limited
Coming of knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 11, 8:00 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Buccaneers’ WR Chris Godwin, listed as questionable due to last season’s knee injury, is expected to play Sunday night vs the Cowboys but could be on a pitch count, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Godwin was wearing a no-contact jersey in practice this week so it's difficult to see him playing anywhere near a fulltime role making him very difficult to trust as a fantasy play in Week 1. Complicating matters is the fact the Bucs don't play against the Cowboys until this evening.


Injury Chris Godwin a gametime decision
Wearing a no-contact jersey on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 9, 12:29 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Coach Todd Bowles said the decision on Chris Godwin will come right up until kickoff. (Jenna Laine on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Quite frankly, Godwin doesn't seem ready to play. He hasn't taken a hit in practice this pre-season. It would be a shock if he's isn't on the Inactive list on Sunday. Mike Evans, Russell Gage and Julio Jones should be the top three wideouts for Tom Brady against the Cowboys.


Injury Chris Godwin still not sure about Week 1
Completing recovery from a late-season ACL tear
By: Doug Orth | Tue Sep 6, 8:40 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chris Godwin (knee) told In the Moment podcast on Tuesday, Sept. 6, that he does not "think any of us know yet (if he will play in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys). “I don’t think any of us know that yet. … I would imagine I have the final say. It’s going to come down to feel. Because I understand what I’m capable of doing on the field when healthy. But I also understand what I’m capable of pushing through. I would love to be there for the entire season, but I think what’s more important is being there for the second half of the season. Being there for what I missed last year," Godwin said. (Tampa Bay Times - Rick Stroud)

FFToday's Take: It certainly appears as if Godwin is leaning toward sitting Week 1. With the Buccaneers being loaded at receiver to begin the season (Mike Evans, Russell Gage and Julio Jones), it makes little sense for Godwin or the team to play if he is not completely ready. He reportedly shed his knee brace Monday, so he is undoubtedly close. Just don't expect vintage Godwin for at least a few weeks.


Julio Jones signs one-year deal with Tampa Bay
33-year-old veteran WR finds a home
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 26, 4:28 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones is signing a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per source. The soon-to-be 45-year Tom Brady now will have a chance to throw to the 33-year-old Jones. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Schefter also reports that the Packers were interested but the Bucs were more aggressive in their offer. Jones has played in 19 games the last two seasons and more often than not, seems to be laboring in games he does play. That said, the landing spot is ideal especial with Chris Godwin (knee) availability for the start of the season in limbo. Julio will likely catch some WR3 value in drafts over the next couple of weeks.
