Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-Godwin failed to deliver on major preseason hype. While he finished 15th in PPR points per game, he made only 12 appearances. That dropped him to WR31 overall.

-Godwin missed 1 game with a concussion, 2 with a hamstring injury and 1 with a fractured finger. He was rarely fully healthy.

-Antonio Brown joined the team ahead of Week 9. Godwin averaged 7.25 targets. 6.25 catches, 70 yards and .5 TDs in 4 games without Brown. He notched 6.8-5.0-70-.62 in 8 games with AB.

-A good chunk of his production surfaced in Weeks 15-17 against poor pass defenses (Atlanta twice, Detroit). He totaled 21-253-4 over that stretch. Godwin finished with 65-840-7 for the year.

-Godwin’s value really stayed afloat with Tampa Bay ranking 3rd in pass rate; 6th in pass attempts.

-Tom Brady remained a top-10 QB. The duo connected on 77.3% of their targets. Godwin did post an ugly 10% drop rate, but 5 surfaced in a single game.

-The Bucs placed the franchise tag on Godwin in March. He’ll earn nearly $16 million.

-Tampa Bay also re-signed Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski. The same starting unit returns for the Brady-led Bucs.

-Only 25, Godwin might not have peaked quite yet. Having Brady continue to play at a high level is key here, and based on what we saw in 2020, a sharp decline is unlikely.

-Given the COVID offseason and limited in-person practices, it’s no surprise that this unit experienced an adjustment period. But after a Week 13 bye, Tampa Bay ranked 2nd in total yards and total points.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line

Injuries put a cap on Godwin’s 2020 upside. He missed 4 games after playing 16, 16 and 14 over his first 3 seasons. His quality of play suffered as a result, with Godwin posting career-worst marks in YPC, drop rate and Pro Football Focus receiving grade.

The return of Antonio Brown isn’t ideal, but the 25-year-old Godwin still profiles as a worthy WR2 on the pass-happy Bucs.

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 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.
