Number Two – Chris Godwin, WR
Here’s where things get interesting. If one wanted to make the argument that number two and number one on this list should be updated to numbers 1 and 1a we won’t fight you on it, too aggressively.
The age-old adage of fantasy football is that you should never draft anyone on Tom Brady’s offense since there are always a million mouths to feed. While there may still be many mouths to feed on this Bucs offense, everybody still eats. Chris Godwin is no exception.
Godwin ran into some health concerns last season, missing four regular-season games. However, he did appear in all four playoff games. So using that, we can compile his stats as if he played in a 16 game season. In those 16 games in 2020, Godwin caught 86 balls for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns on 71 targets (19% share).
While the target share is a concern with the crowded wide receiver room, Godwin still gets his. He should, he’s one of the best receivers in the league. Fortunately, Godwin also primarily plays in the slot, which is where a lot of fantasy production can come, particularly in PPR leagues. Godwin isn’t a WR1 option, but still a viable fantasy option nonetheless.
