The Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR duo was ranked the best in the league

When Tom Brady takes the field with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, he’ll have the best wide receiving core in his career at his disposal.

The Buccaneers boast two of the top wide receivers in the league in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin and that duo has Tampa Bay fans dreaming of potential postseason possibilities as they team up with Brady to give the Bucs one of the top passing offenses in the league.

Bleacher Report released its rankings for the top five wide receiver duos in the NFL entering 2020 and had the talented Buccaneers duo ranked No. 1 overall.

Here’s a look at the top five, according to Bleacher Report:

  1. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
  2. Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry (Cleveland Browns)
  3. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley (Atlanta Falcons)
  4. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams (Los Angeles Chargers)
  5. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf (Seattle Seahawks)

You just can’t be the explosiveness of the Buccaneers duo

According to Bleacher Report, only four qualified NFL receivers averaged more than 85 yards per game in 2019 and both of the Bucs wide receivers were on the list.

When you look at what Evans and Godwin bring to Tampa Bay, it’s easy to see what Tom Brady saw in joining the franchise. Both of these guys are play-makers who complement each other better.

They’re an absolute nightmare for opposing defensive backfields and they’re able to beat defenses in different ways.

It’s going to be interesting to see how Evans and Godwin perform with Brady as the quarterback. They’ll have an opportunity to make an impact and it’s clear that Brady will want to get them involved and allow them to make plays. In the end, they’ll prove to be the best WR duo in the league.
