News: 3 days agoGodwin brought in three of seven targets for 45 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-20 loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Spin: Godwin tied for second in receiving yards and was the runner-up in targets on the afternoon for Tampa Bay, but his numbers have to once again be considered a disappointment. The seven-year veteran nearly came down with a touchdown grab in the right corner of the end zone on Kyle Trask's one pass attempt, but he's now gone without a score in four consecutive contests. Godwin has failed to top 54 receiving yards in five straight games as well, dampening his fantasy outlook heading into a Week 13 home matchup against the Panthers.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Godwin is fresh off an impressive 2022 campaign in which he set career-high marks in targets and receptions despite spending most of last offseason rehabbing a torn ACL. Godwin's short-range role (5.9 aDOT) limited his yardage and he wasn't much of a factor near the goal line (four end zone targets), but he still managed his fourth consecutive top-15 finish in fantasy PPG. The 27-year-old has some durability concerns (he has missed at least two games in four consecutive seasons), but the larger issue here is the departure of Tom Brady. Tampa Bay has operated an extremely pass-heavy offense during the Brady era, but that will change with Baker Mayfield and/or Kyle Trask under center. Godwin will see enough volume to produce borderline WR2 production.
