The Buccaneers are placing the franchise tag on WR Chris Godwin, according to multiple reports. Barring a trade, that locks in a 2021 return for Godwin. We'll see whether the 2 sides work out a longer-term deal before the deadline. Godwin slipped last season from his monster 2019 production, but he still ranked 15th among wideouts in PPR points per game. Expect him to battle Mike Evans once again for the top fantasy score among Bucs receivers. His return suppresses the upside of 2nd-year WR Tyler Johnson, but it keeps QB Tom Brady working with 1 of the league's best WR tandems. We'll see what Tampa elects to do with WR Antonio Brown, who is headed for free agency this month.

Bucs WRs Chris Godwin (finger) and Mike Evans (hamstring) were left off the final injury report. Godwin missed Wednesday’s practice after getting a pin removed from his previously broken finger but put in full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Evans was limited Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday but a full-go on Friday. Both guys are safe to get into Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (finger) put in a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll be ready to rock for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin had a "minor procedure" to have the pins removed from his broken finger on Tuesday morning, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. This is the finger injury that cost Godwin Week 8. We imagine he'll be fine for Sunday's game against the Vikings but will keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (finger) is active for tonight’s game against the Saints. He caught footballs for the 1st time on Friday after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured left index finger about 2 weeks ago. We’ll see how that impacts his ability to catch, but Tampa evidently feels comfortable enough to play him tonight.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (finger) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Saints. He caught footballs for the 1st time on Friday, and HC Bruce Arians said they’ll see how sore he is on Saturday before making a decision on his Week 9 status. Godwin seems to be trending toward playing, but stay tuned to Shark Bites for updates.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (finger) remained limited on Thursday. He's reportedly 50/50 for Sunday night's game against the Saints. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (finger) was a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough, HC Bruce Arians said. But Arians conceded that Godwin's availability for Sunday night's game vs. the Saints remains uncertain. "We won’t know until Friday if he can catch a ball," Arians said. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Bucs WR Chris Godwin (finger) "has a 50/50 chance" of playing against the Saints next weekend. Doctors reportedly initially believed that Godwin would miss 4-6 weeks with his fractured left index finger, but that timeline changed after surgery to put pins in the finger. We'll monitor Godwin's status this coming week.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians admitted Wednesday that it'd be "very optimistic" to expect WR Chris Godwin (finger) to return for Week 9. "But it could be possible. We don’t know, really, how long," Arians added. According to our colleague Dr. Jesse Morse, Godwin could miss anywhere from 1-4 weeks depending on the type of surgery he needed on that broken finger. We'll continue to monitor his rehab, but fantasy owners should prepare to be without Godwin for more than just Week 8.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin underwent surgery to repair a fractured left index finger and is out for "at least" Monday night's game against the Giants, according to insider Dov Kleiman. We'll see if Godwin can make it back for Week 9. Tampa's bye isn't until Week 13. Godwin's absence should put rookie WR Tyler Johnson back into the starting slot role. He posted a 4-61 line on 6 targets in the last game Godwin misses.

Bucs WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring), Mike Evans (ankle), Scotty Miller (hip groin) and Justin Watson (chest) were all left off the final injury report. Godwin practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. Evans put in just 2 limited practices, so it looks like he’s more banged-up than Godwin at this point. Both guys are still virtual must-starts in what should be a shootout vs. Green Bay. Miller and Watson aren’t really useable with Godwin and Evans active.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. It's still unclear whether he's ready to return for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That's an upgrade over last week, when Godwin didn't practice at all. He seemingly has a shot to return for Sunday's showdown with the Packers. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

The Buccaneers have ruled WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) out for Thursday night's game against the Bears. We'll see if he can make it back for the Week 6 home date with the Packers. His absence leaves opportunity upside for WR Scotty Miller and TE Rob Gronkowski.

Bucs WRs Mike Evans (ankle), Chris Godwin (hamstring), Justin Watson (chest), and Scotty Miller (hip, groin) all missed Tuesday's practice. Godwin is a long shot to play against the Bears on Thursday night. The other 3 should be available, but we'll get another update tomorrow.

As expected, the Buccaneers have ruled WR Chris Godwin out for Sunday's game against the Chargers because of his hamstring injury. That clears the way for Justin Watson to work as the primary slot WR against a defense that recently lost slot CB Chris Harris. That doesn't necessarily make the Chargers weak at that spot. They figure to slide in Desmond King, who performed well as their primary slot corner the past 2 seasons but has played mostly safety so far this season. Still, Watson will be worth a look as a cheap DFS option, especially with WR Scotty Miller also dealing with hip and groin issues. ESPN's Jenna Laine said Friday the team is "waiting to see" whether Miller will be able to play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that MRI confirmed WR Chris Godwin sustained a "mild hamstring pull" in Sunday's win over the Broncos. He'll reportedly miss at least this Sunday's game against the Chargers and doesn't look promising for the Thursday night clash with the Bears in Week 5. Rapoport says it "shouldn't be much more after that." We'll track Godwin's progress closely. His absence leaves opportunity for WR Scotty Miller and WR Justin Watson, who saw primary slot duty when Godwin missed Week 2.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin could miss "multiple games" with his right hamstring injury, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. It's unclear if this is a report or just an educated guess -- but it certainly wouldn't be surprising if Godwin was out for multiple weeks. After facing the Chargers this weekend, the Bucs play the Bears the following Thursday night, which won't help Godwin's chances of playing in Week 5. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation, but fantasy owners should plan on being without Godwin for at least the next 2 weeks.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin suffered a hamstring injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos and was quickly ruled out. We'll look for an update on the severity and his status for Week 4 and beyond.
