Chris Godwin caught 6-of-9 targets for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' Week 17 loss to the Falcons.
Despite playing in a rotation for most of the season with DeSean Jackson, Godwin finished his sophomore campaign with a 59/842/7 receiving line, averaging 14.3 yards per catch. Godwin rebounded from a slow Weeks 14-16 run against some of the NFL's toughest pass defenses to light Atlanta on fire in a 34-32 thriller in Sunday's finale. Jackson is fully expected to be cut or traded in the offseason. Don't be surprised if Godwin is a fourth- to fifth-round fantasy pick in 2019 season-long leagues. Sun, Dec 30, 2018 04:15:00 PM

Chris Godwin caught 3-of-6 targets for 39 yards in the Bucs' Week 16 loss to the Cowboys.

DeSean Jackson returned from his thumb injury in this one and took away four targets, so he and Godwin were rendered pretty much useless and Mike Evans and Adam Humphries combined for 22 looks. Jackson hurt his foot, so maybe Godwin could get some extra run Week 17 against Atlanta.

Chris Godwin was held without a catch in Week 15 against the Ravens.

It's another letdown coming off last week's one-catch game. Godwin's Week 16 value will be tied to DeSean Jackson's (thumb) status.

Chris Godwin caught 1-of-10 targets for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Saints.

Godwin was a major disappointment, suffering a drop and getting blanketed by Eli Apple all afternoon. He led the Bucs in targets, but the majority of his targets were either uncatchable or broken up late by Apple. Despite the down game, Godwin will be on the board as a WR3 option in Week 15 on the road against the Ravens, but his fantasy viability is contingent on DeSean Jackson being active.

Chris Godwin caught 5-of-6 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Panthers.

Godwin got half his yards on a wide open 40-plus yard catch and run. His TD came on a broken play in the red-zone. It’s the first touchdown for Godwin in last seven games. Godwin will be on the WR3 map if DeSean Jackson can’t return next week

Chris Godwin caught 4-of-4 targets for 42 yards in the Bucs' Week 12 win.

It was a quiet game for Godwin, who operates as a rotational receiver in the Bucs' deep passing game. Godwin is plenty capable of turning in big box-score games, but he doesn't always get enough opportunity to convert competing for targets with Mike Evans, Adam Humphries, DeSean Jackson, and Cameron Brate, among others. Godwin will be a fringe WR3/flex in Week 13 against Carolina.

Chris Godwin (ankle) was removed from the Week 12 injury report.

This was expected with Godwin practicing fully all week. Godwin is healthy after playing through a Week 11 questionable tag. He's our No. 38 ranked wideout for a matchup against the 49ers.

Chris Godwin (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 12 against the 49ers.

He secured all three of his targets for 50 yards playing through the injury in last week's loss to New York. Godwin is our No. 38 wide receiver for Week 12.

Chris Godwin (ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Giants.

Godwin will play through his questionable tag, as expected. Despite splitting reps with DeSean Jackson as the team's third receiver, Godwin has continued to leverage his athletic prowess into efficient fantasy production and red zone targets. He remains a boom-bust WR3 proposition in Week 11 given his limited on-field usage compared to that of Mike Evans or Adam Humphries.

Chris Godwin (questionable, ankle) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Giants.

Godwin created some concern after missing two practices early in the week, but he got in a full session Friday. It's possible the Bucs cut back his snaps at less than 100 percent, giving Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries all higher floors. Godwin is a risky FLEX. Daily Slant: Godwin was listed questionable throughout the week with the injury, although it isn’t the first time this season Godwin's carried an injury designation during the practice week and then been good to go by game time. Godwin will in all probability see his normal workload this Sunday against the Giants, but makes for a risky DFS option given how the Buccaneers spread the ball around on offense. Godwin is nothing more than a GPP dart throw that can be paired with Ryan Fitzpatrick in the event they connect for a touchdown.

Chris Godwin (ankle) is questionable for Week 11 against the Giants.

Godwin was a full participant at Friday's practice after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the questionable listing, he should be fine for Sunday's game in East Rutherford. Adam Humphries would have been an interesting DFS flyer had Godwin sat out, but it looks like that ship has sailed.
Fri, Nov 16, 2018 02:22:00 PM

Chris Godwin (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Godwin is beginning to look doubtful for Sunday's showdown with the Giants. His absence would make Adam Humphries a Week 11 target hog.
Thu, Nov 15, 2018 01:21:00 PM

Chris Godwin (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Godwin appeared to injure his ankle on one of the last plays of last week's loss to the Redskins. Coming off a season-high in yards, Godwin should be in the WR4 mix if he suits up against the Giants Sunday in East Rutherford.
Wed, Nov 14, 2018 04:11:00 PM

Chris Godwin caught all seven of his targets for 103 yards in the Bucs' Week 10 loss to the Redskins.

Godwin was the intended receiver on Ryan Fitzpatrick's first interception, but it didn't register as an official target as it sailed well over his head at the goal line and into Josh Norman's hands. Godwin has been super touchdown-dependent much of the year and will be a WR4 next week against the Giants.
Sun, Nov 11, 2018 04:49:00 PM

Chris Godwin caught 2-of-3 targets for 40 yards in the Bucs' Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

Godwin was not really heard from as Adam Humphries gobbled up eight targets behind Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson. Averaging just 48 yards per game, Godwin has settled in as a low-end WR4.
