Summary

Chris Godwin progressed to new heights in 2019 with a massive third-year breakout, amassing more than 1,300 yards on 119 targets. Godwin had more targets than Mike Evans in more than half of their games together in 2019 and, importantly, Godwin projects as the more slot-centric option for new quarterback Tom Brady over the middle of the field. Competition will be high for targets within the Buccaneers' passing game between Godwin, Mike Evans, and O.J. Howard atop the pecking order, but all three are higher level talents to exploit the likely reduced turnovers and quicker decision-making of Tom Brady under center. (April 28)

Buccaneers | Chris Godwin made the most of slot work (Thu Jul 2, 09:42 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin accumulated 838 receiving yards out of the slot in 2019 - the second-highest total in the league behind Cooper Kupp (853) - according to Pro Football Focus.

Our View: Godwin may in the slot less often with the addition of Rob Gronkowski and more two tight end sets this year, but he is still a WR1 and second-round pick in most fantasy drafts.
