Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 12 balls for 110 yards and a TD in Sunday's OT loss at Cleveland. Godwin's 13 targets led the team by 4, with RB Rachaad White the only other Buc to catch more than 3 balls. WR Mike Evans tied White for 2nd on the team with 9 targets but caught only 2 of them (for 31 yards). FB Ko Kieft snagged QB Tom Brady's other TD throw on his lone target.

Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin led the team with 8 targets, 6 catches and 71 yards in Sunday morning's win over the Seahawks. And much to the relief of fantasy football managers everywhere, he finally found the end zone for the 1st time this season. Mike Evans followed with a mediocre stat line on a limited passing day for the Bucs, catching 5 balls for 54 yards among 6 targets. WR Julio Jones claimed the team's other TD catch among 3 receptions for 53 yards.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not make the trip to Germany and is out for Sunday morning's game vs. the Seahawks. Scotty Miller finished 3rd among Bucs WRs with a 52% route rate last week; Julio Jones was 4th at 35%. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans remain the only bankable fantasy plays in this WR corps.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady went 36-of-58 passing in Sunday's win over the Rams. He tallied 280 yards and 1 TD, but that came out to just 4.8 yards per attempt. And his lone TD came with just seconds remaining to give Tampa Bay the victory. TE Cade Otton caught that score and totaled 5-68-1 receiving on 6 targets. WR Mike Evans led the team with 11 targets but managed just 5 catches and 40 yards. WR Chris Godwin followed with 10 looks but tallied only 36 yards on his 7 receptions. WR Scotty Miller tied Godwin for the reception lead and collected 53 yards. His lone missed target was a late-game drop when an end-zone pass hit his facemask. Tampa Bay heads to Germany next Sunday morning to face a hot Seahawks defense.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady threw for just 243 yards and 1 TD on 25-of-40 passing in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. It was a disappointing outing vs. a Pittsburgh defense that arrived just 24th in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA. On top of that, The Steelers were missing 3 corners and S Minkah Fitzpatrick. Chris Godwin led the team with a 6-95 receiving line on 12 targets, double his nearest teammate. RB Leonard Fournette was the only other Buc with more than 4 targets. WR Mike Evans posted a 4-42 receiving line on his 4 targets. Tampa Bay visits the Panthers in Week 7, before home dates with the Ravens, Rams and Seahawks.

Bucs WR Julio Jones (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Steelers. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Russell Gage will be Tampa’s clear top 3 WRs.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hip, knee) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He got in a limited practice on Wednesday and a full practice on Friday. Godwin was limited to just 52% of Tampa’s offensive snaps last week, so there’s some risk here. But there’s also plenty of upside in an excellent matchup vs. the Steelers.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hip, knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Godwin was scaled back to a 52% snap rate in last week's win over Atlanta, so his status over the next couple of days is worth monitoring.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady attempted 52 passes for the 2nd straight game in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He completed 35 (67.3%) for 351 yards (6.75 yards per attempt) and 1 TD. Brady targeted RB Leonard Fournette most, throwing his way on 21.2% of pass attempts (11 targets) -- including his only TD toss. WR Mike Evans ranked 2nd with 8 targets, catching 4 for 81 yards. TE Cade Otton (6-43) and WR Scotty Miller (4-35) tied with 7 targets. WR Chris Godwin (6-61) and WR Russell Gage (2-20) each drew 6 looks. The Bucs now rank 4th in the league in pass attempts and have run on just 33% of offensive snaps for the season to date.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin delivered a fine outing for fantasy owners in the Sunday's win over the Falcons: 6 catches for 61 yards. But he played just 52% of the offensive snaps -- way down from last week's 83%. Godwin, of course, is returning from ACL and hamstring injuries, but there was no injury announced during or after the game. The Athletic's Greg Auman speculated that the Bucs just wanted to get Godwin some rest after taking a 21-0 lead midway through the 3rd quarter. We'll keep a close eye on Godwin's practice participation this coming week.

The Buccaneers got WR Mike Evans back from a 1-game suspension and WR Chris Godwin back from a Week 1 hamstring injury in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs. Those 2 tied for the team lead with 10 targets apiece. Evans caught 8 for 103 yards and 2 scores. Godwin secured 7 catches for 59 yards. Tampa gets a soft Atlanta defense in Week 5.

Bucs WRs Russell Gage (hamstring), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and WR Julio Jones (knee) are active for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. They all figure to be operating at less than 100% – and it’s unclear exactly how snaps will be divvied behind WR Mike Evans. We’d try to avoid the 3 of them if possible, but Gage sits highest in the Week 4 WR Rankings. WR Breshad Perriman is inactive with his knee and hamstring injuries, while WR Scott Miller is a healthy scratch.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that the Bucs are "optimistic" that WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) will be able to play vs. the Chiefs tonight. "But Tampa Bay wants to test both pregame to make sure," Schefter adds. We won't get the Bucs' inactives until around 7 pm ET, and Godwin and Jones will both carry elevated risk if they are active. So we'd try to keep them on fantasy benches this week. This news makes WR Russell Gage a shakier Week 4 fantasy play but helps QB Tom Brady.
