Chris Godwin labeled a “breakout” candidate
The next and only other Buccaneer receiver to make the list is the third year receiver Chris Godwin. Godwin is coming off a bit of a quiet breakout season totaling 59 catches, 842 yards and seven touchdowns. Godwin was able to toss together a pretty productive season even with a crowded field in terms of mouths to feed in the passing game.

We’ve heard Bruce Arians more than once this offseason rave about Godwin and his expectations for the upcoming 2019 season. Godwin falls into tier-five, which is titled “Breakouts” and features other receivers around the league like Calvin Ridley, Tyler Lockett, and Tyler Boyd. This group is primarily younger wide receivers that are in line for an increased workload due to someone leaving the team.
If Godwin stays healthy this season I fully expect 75+ catches, 1,000+ yards and another five or more scores. Godwin is a fast riser in most fantasy drafts now because the buzz around him is all too real. You might have to reach for Godwin to get him as I think he’ll be a mid round target for most fantasy players.
Beyond Evans and Godwin, it may be hard to find fantasy football value with any of the rest of the Buccaneers’ receivers. However, some potential dark horse candidates not ranked by PFF could have potential to make an impact this season.
