Player Outlook
Godwin has been an excellent Fantasy receiver for the past three seasons with two top-seven finishes. It's assumed once he's fully rehabbed from the torn ACL suffered last December that he'll quickly re-establish himself as a high-target playmaker in the Bucs' offense and at minimum as a top-12 option on a weekly basis. When will he be all the way back? That remains to be seen, and whatever his timetable is will impact when you draft him. If he's participating in practices leading up to the season, Godwin will warrant a top-25 pick easily. If he's not close, he could slip into late Round 3 or Round 4 just because you won't be able to use him early on. In that case, pairing Godwin with teammate Russell Gage (Round 8) could pay dividends.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Ramping up workload

    Godwin (knee) is handling 7-on-7 work in Tuesday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Godwin is participating in 7-on-7 work for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair his right ACL, a notable step forward from individual drills. The Buccaneers will doubtless continue to take a cautious approach with Godwin's recovery, but his progress is good news for the team, especially with Mike Evans (hamstring) and Russell Gage (leg) not practicing this week.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Practices for second straight day

    Godwin (knee) ran full-speed routes during individual and positional drills for the second consecutive day in Saturday's practice, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The recovering receiver's rehab process is coming along as well as could be expected at this juncture, with head coach Todd Bowles emphasizing how effectively Godwin is moving around just nine months removed from his ACL injury. The team will naturally continue to exercise considerable caution with Godwin, but the fact the Week 1 clash against the Cowboys is still over a month away seemingly gives him a fighting chance of playing at least a limited role in that contest.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Very limited in first practice

    Godwin (knee) appeared limited to straight-line running and individual drills Friday in his return to practice, Greg Auman of The Tampa Bay Times reports. This is to be expected in his first practice tearing an ACL on Dec. 19. Godwin presumably has done cutting/agility work as part of his rehab process, but the Bucs don't want him pushing it in the more competitive atmosphere of a team practice. The plan, it would seem, is to ramp him up over the next five weeks, with eyes toward Week 1 against Dallas. The team can't be accused of lacking insurance, as offseason signings Russell Gage and Julio Jones can join forces with Mike Evans to give Tampa an impressive WR group even if Godwin misses games or starts off in a limited role.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Returns to practice

    Godwin (knee) returned to practice Friday, sporting a knee brace in his first session since suffering an ACL tear last December, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. It's a big step forward and all but confirms that the Bucs hope to have Godwin ready for Week 1. The timing of his injury toward the end of last season has made that a question mark, but all reports suggests his rehab has gone well, with avoidance of the PUP list at the beginning of training camp being an especially good sign. He's now practicing, though perhaps on a limited basis, with more than five weeks to go before Tampa's season opener against Dallas.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Dodges PUP list

    Godwin (knee) will avoid the PUP list and has been cleared to begin training camp, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Stroud notes that the Bucs will be careful with Godwin, who had surgery Jan. 3 for a torn ACL. He didn't participate in spring practices and may be eased in this summer, but the decision to keep him off the PUP list suggests Godwin has a shot to be ready for Week 1.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Making progress, still no timeline

    Reports on Godwin's rehab from an ACL tear have been encouraging, but the Bucs haven't commented on when they expect him back, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. As expected, Godwin missed spring practices while rehabbing the major knee injury he suffered Dec. 19. Auman suggests the star wideout has a chance to open the regular season on the 53-man roster, though there's also some danger he'll land on the PUP list and miss the first six games. With Godwin uncertain for Week 1 and Rob Gronkowski retired, QB Tom Brady may have to lean on Mike Evans, Russell Gage, Cameron Brate and the Tampa running backs early in the season.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Reaches $60 million deal with Bucs

    Godwin (knee) agreed to a three-year, $60 million contract extension with the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Tampa Bay applied the franchise tag on Godwin last week for the second consecutive year, but the two sides were quickly able to come to an agreement on a longer-term deal. The 2017 third-round pick will receive $40 million guaranteed and is set to return to the open market in 2025, when he'll be 29 years old. Godwin is recovering from the torn ACL and sprained MCL in his right knee he sustained Week 15, so his availability for the start of the 2022 campaign still appears to be in question.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Second consecutive franchise tag

    The Buccaneers placed the franchise tag on Godwin on Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. For the second year in a row, Tampa Bay has tagged Godwin, meaning he'll be due $19.2 million in 2022 if the two sides are unable to come to terms on a long-term deal. Currently, he's in recovery mode from the torn ACL and sprained MCL that he sustained in his right knee back in Week 15. Due to the timing of the injury, Godwin's availability for Week 1 of next season is in question, as is who will be under center for the Bucs once he gets healthy following the retirement of Tom Brady this offseason.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Franchise tag anticipated

    The Buccaneers are expected to use their franchise tag on Godwin (knee) prior to Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, Tyler Dragon of USA Today reports. Godwin, who is recovering from ACL and MCL tears in his right knee, looks like he will stick with Tampa Bay for the 2022 campaign under the team's franchise tag. That would mark the second consecutive year that Godwin has received the tag, so his salary would count $19.2 million against the cap. The tag may only serve as a placeholder for a long-term deal, however, as Dianna Russini of ESPN notes that the Buccaneers are still looking to work out an extension with Godwin. Through 14 appearances in the 2021 season, Godwin compiled career-high marks with 98 catches on 127 targets, which he translated into 1,103 yards and five touchdowns. While it's unclear whether Godwin will be at full strength to kick off the upcoming campaign, his ability to move the chains would doubtless prove a notable boon for whoever lines up under center for the Bucs in Week 1, with Tom Brady having retired.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Has surgery Monday

    Godwin underwent surgery Monday to repair the ACL and MCL in his right knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure, which didn't reveal any damage to Godwin's meniscus. While he will be in recovery mode when free agency opens up in mid-March, he's expected to be among the top options available at the position if the Buccaneers don't use the franchise tag on him again or otherwise can't come to terms with him on a new contract. Prior to injuring his knee in Week 15, he had set career highs with 98 catches and 127 targets en route to 1,103 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Heads to IR

    Tampa Bay placed Godwin (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Godwin's move to IR was merely procedural after head coach Bruce Arians confirmed Monday that the wideout suffered a torn ACL in addition to an MCL sprain of his right knee in the Buccaneers' Week 15 loss to the Saints. The transaction opens up a spot on the 53-man roster for fellow wideout Antonio Brown (ankle), who returns from a three-game suspension and could absorb a good portion of the 9.1 targets per contest Godwin had averaged through Tampa Bay's first 14 games.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Could miss rest of regular season

    Godwin (knee) could miss the rest of the regular season due to an MCL sprain suffered during Sunday's shutout loss to the Saints, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Godwin is a likely candidate for IR, according to Rapoport, though Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Buccaneers haven't yet made any decision about shutting him down for the final three games of the regular season. It appears that there's optimism about Godwin's chances of returning for the playoffs, but at the very least he seems likely to miss Week 16 at Carolina. The status of Mike Evans (hamstring), who was also forced off the field Sunday night, becomes increasingly key for that contest. Tampa Bay is expected to get Antonio Brown back from his three-game suspension, but the status of his ankle sprain also remains a question mark. Behind that trio, the team has Tyler Johnson, Scotty Miller and Breshad Perriman (COVID-19) in the wideout mix.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Won't return to SNF

    Godwin (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Saints. Godwin tried to test out the injury he suffered in the second quarter, but he was subsequently ruled out at halftime along with Mike Evans (hamstring). With the top two wide receivers done for the night, the Buccaneers have just Tyler Johnson, Scotty Miller and Jaelon Darden left at the position.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Hurts knee against Saints

    Godwin (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints. Godwin was active before getting hurt in the second quarter, catching six of seven targets for 49 yards. He got hit in the knee while making the sixth catch. Godwin immediately made his way to the medical tent and was later spotted testing the knee out by running on the sideline. With fellow wide receiver Mike Evans (hamstring) doubtful to return, Tom Brady's working with a depleted group of pass-catchers.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Another double-digit catch total

    Godwin brought in 10 of 15 targets for 105 yards in the Buccaneers' 33-27 overtime win over the Bills on Sunday. Godwin's reception, receiving yardage and target totals led the Buccaneers on the afternoon, and he now has consecutive double-digit reception tallies after not accomplishing the feat in the first 11 games of the campaign. The Penn State product has a whopping 32 targets in the last pair of contests, a level of volume that's seemingly unsustainable over the long term but that could persist in a Week 15 Sunday night matchup against a Saints team that funnels plenty of action toward the air due to its elite run defense.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Explodes for 15-catch tally

    Godwin brought in 15 of 17 targets for 143 yards and rushed once for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Godwin has had some eye-popping lines before in his now nearly two seasons of working with Tom Brady, but Sunday's performance nevertheless jumped off the page. The fifth-year veteran easily led all pass catchers across the board during what was his fourth 100-yard effort of the campaign, with three of those instances coming in the last six games. Given Brady frequently distributes targets somewhat unpredictably from week to week, Godwin's breakout performance could well be followed by a much more modest one, but he'll head into an interconference showdown against the Bills in Week 14 with a serious head of steam.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Modest showing in win

    Godwin brought in four of five targets for 24 yards and lost a fumble in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Colts on Sunday. Godwin checked in second in receptions on the afternoon and led Bucs wideouts in catches, but that wasn't saying much on an afternoon when only eight of Tom Brady's 25 completions went to receivers. Godwin's first opportunity to bounce back from what was a season-low yardage total comes in a Week 13 road matchup against the Falcons.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Still playing without Brown

    Godwin will be joined in the lineup by Mike Evans (foot) on Sunday at Indianapolis, but Antonio Brown (ankle) will remain sidelined, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Godwin bumped up from a limited listing on Wednesday to full standing on Tampa Bay injury reports both Thursday and Friday. Meanwhile, Evans opened Week 12 prep with back-to-back absences due to a back issue before logging every practice rep Friday, while Brown is missing a fifth straight game due to a sprained ankle. With Brown on the pine, Godwin has accumulated a 29-373-3 line on 37 targets. Godwin will stay heavily involved in the Bucs' passing game against a Colts defense that has allowed 170.2 total yards per contest and an NFL-high 18 TDs to wide receivers in 11 games this season.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Practices fully Thursday

    Godwin (foot) practiced in full Thursday, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports. While Mike Evans (back) and Antonio Brown (ankle) remained sidelined, Godwin upgraded from his limited listing on Wednesday's injury report. It's unclear where Evans and Brown stand in their respective recoveries, but Godwin clearly is the healthiest of the Buccaneers' top trio of wide receivers at the moment.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Dealing with foot injury

    Godwin (foot) was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated practice report. Godwin is dealing with a foot injury for a third consecutive week, but it hasn't stopped him from producing to the tune of 13 catches (on 14 targets) for 122 yards and one touchdown along with a seven-yard carry during that stretch. While Godwin was limited at Wednesday's walk-through session, fellow wide receivers Mike Evans (back) and Antonio Brown (ankle) didn't practice at all. Brown hasn't suited up since Week 6, resulting in four consecutive absences, and Evans is working through back tightness. The trio will have two more chances to prove their health before the end of the week, but Godwin seems to be the healthiest of the group at the moment.
