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.
Buccaneers OC Dave Canales told reporters Thursday that he has to do a better job of getting the ball to WR Chris Godwin. That, of course, comes after Godwin went catchless on 3 targets in a narrow Week 13 victory over Carolina. HC Todd Bowles previously pointed to Godwin being banged up when asked about the WR's quiet day, but Godwin saw no decrease in playing time. Canales also said that Godwin did a good job of preparing himself for that game. The coach called Godwin "magic with the ball" and said he's "not satisfied with how we're using Chris in our offense." Canales indicated he needs to get more quick passes schemed to the veteran. Don't get overly excited this week about Godwin, who has 1 TD catch all year and is averaging his fewest receptions per game (4.4) since 2018, his second year in the league. But Godwin gets a rematch with Atlanta. He drew a season-high 12 targets in the first meeting and posted a 6-66 receiving line. Godwin looks like a WR3 option in PPR leagues for Week 14, with upside into WR2 range.
A reporter asked Buccaneers HC Todd Bowles on Monday if he was surprised that WR Chris Godwin didn't catch a pass in Sunday's win over the Panthers. Bowles blamed it on them "subbing him out a lot" and said he's "probably banged up more than most." Perhaps the neck injury that rendered Godwin questionable for the game limited his performance. But he still ran two more routes than Mike Evans and played 84% of offensive snaps, right in Godwin's usual range. We'll watch his practice participation this week. But the bigger limitation on Godwin's Week 14 projection will probably his lackluster recent production. Even before the receiving goose egg in Week 13, Godwin had averaged just 3.8 receptions and 38.5 yards over his previous four games. He's looking like a WR4 in PPR formats.
Bucs WR Chris Godwin (neck) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. Godwin was added to Thursday's injury report with the neck issue, did not practice on Friday, and was reportedly a game-time decision today. He carries elevated risk in Week 13 fantasy lineups but is available if you were waiting on him.
ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Bucs WR Chris Godwin (neck) "likely" to play vs. the Panthers today. "But the team needs to make sure he feels OK in pre-game warmups first," Schefter adds. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport had a similar report, saying Godwin "plans to play Sunday vs. Carolina as long as he wakes up feeling good." That's a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, so we won't get the Bucs' inactives until a little after 2:30. If you're hoping to use Godwin today, it'd be wise to have another late-game option rostered just in case Godwin ends up sitting.
Bucs HC Todd Bowles labeled WR Chris Godwin (neck) a game-time decision for Sunday's meeting with the Panthers. Godwin was added to Thursday's injury report with the neck issue. We'll look for further updates on Godwin but won't get Tampa Bay's inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET on Sunday. The neck injury adds risk to a guy who only looked like a WR3 anyway.
Update: Godwin did not practice on Friday and is officially listed as questionable.
