Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Another stellar stat line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin secured 10 of 12 targets for 151 yards in the Buccaneers' 37-26 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

Godwin's massive day was accomplished with excellent efficiency, with fellow wideout Mike Evans needing 17 targets to generate a 9-96 line in comparison. Despite Evans' solid line, Godwin is clearly the No. 1 receiver in the Bucs offense for all practical purposes, with his three straight 100-yard efforts and four in the last five games overall offering plenty of evidence in that regard. Godwin did fail to catch a touchdown for the first time in three games, but with 35 targets over the last three contests alone, his fantasy stock is through the roof in all formats.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Back to full participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) practiced fully Thursday.

For the third week in a row, Godwin's practice reps were impacted by a hip injury, but his elevation from LP on Wednesday to FP one day later indicates he's putting it further in the rearview mirror. The issue hasn't affected his game-day viability during that two-game stretch, as he's totaled 19 catches (on 23 targets) for 297 yards and four touchdowns. With the Panthers on tap Sunday in London, Godwin will look to replicate his 8-121-1 line on nine targets from the Buccaneers' Week 2 road win at Carolina.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Godwin has been nursing a lingering hip injury since Week 4, but it didn't prevent him from posting big stat lines in either of the past two games. The receiver's practice time may remain restricted again Thursday and/or Friday, but unless the Buccaneers indicate he's experienced a setback, expect Godwin to handle his usual snap load in Sunday's tilt with the Panthers.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Finds end zone twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin secured seven of nine targets for 125 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 31-24 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Godwin was one of the few bright spots for the Buccaneers in a loss that was more lopsided than the final score implies. The third-year wideout scored his pair of 26-yard touchdowns in the first and fourth quarters, the second giving Tampa some thin hope by closing the deficit to a touchdown with 13 seconds remaining. Godwin arguably has taken the mantle of top week-to-week receiver from Mike Evans, with the latter failing to bring in any of his three targets Sunday. Godwin has back-to-back two-score efforts and has logged at least nine targets in three of his past four games, making him an elite option in all formats heading into a Week 6 divisional matchup versus the Panthers in London.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

There was never any real question about Godwin's chances of playing after he put up a 12-172-2 receiving line last week in Los Angeles while managing the same injury. He'll take aim at a New Orleans defense that's given up the fifth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers, yielding 10.1 yards per target and a 62.7 percent catch rate. The Saints looked much better last week against the Cowboys, however, limiting Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper to their worst games of the young season.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Bumps up to limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) was listed as limited on Thursday's injury report.

Godwin followed a DNP/DNP/LP practice regimen last week, only to tear up the Rams this past Sunday for 12 catches, 172 yards and two touchdowns on 14 targets. After being held out of practice Wednesday, he's ahead of that schedule, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to shed his injury designation entirely ahead of Sunday's visit to New Orleans.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Hip injury lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin didn't practice Wednesday due to a hip injury, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Godwin missed a pair of practices last week due to the hip issue, but he managed to play through the injury en route to a masterful 172-yard, two-score performance in the Buccaneers' win over the Rams. If the 23-year-old is able to practice in some capacity by the end of the week, it'll bode well for his availability heading into Sunday's tilt in New Orleans.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin was held out of practice Wednesday due to an unspecified issue, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Godwin missed practices Wednesday and Thursday last week due to a hip injury, though it's uncertain if the same issue is behind his absence for the first session of Week 5. The wideout managed to shake off the injury and gain an active status for Sunday's upset win over the Rams, busting out for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' offensive explosion. The Buccaneers will reveal what is affecting Godwin this week when they release their initial injury report later Wednesday.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Explodes in huge road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin secured 12 of 14 targets for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 55-40 win over the Rams on Sunday.

Godwin had entered Sunday sporting a questionable designation due to a hip injury, but as his final numbers indicate, he was completely unencumbered while eviscerating the Rams secondary all afternoon. The third-year wideout comfortably paced the Buccaneers in receptions and receiving yardage, and he also recorded his first multi-touchdown game of the season with scoring grabs of three and nine yards in the second quarter. Godwin boasts 33 targets through the first four games, lending credence to the notion he's at least sharing the mantle of No. 1 receiver with Mike Evans, if he hasn't already taken possession of it outright. Godwin will look to put together a successful encore to the eye-popping effort when he and the Buccaneers take on the Saints in a Week 5 divisional showdown.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Active in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) is active for Sunday's Week 4 tilt against the Rams, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

The third-year receiver only managed one limited practice this past week, but he'll nevertheless be out there for Jameis Winston and fantasy managers Sunday. With a matchup against the high-octane Rams on tap, Godwin may see plenty of work as the Buccaneers attempt to keep pace with Jared Goff and his teammates.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Buccaneers had been treating Godwin as a game-time call after he managed only one limited practice this week, but the team is apparently optimistic with how the wideout has bounced back from the hip injury in the last couple of days. Godwin's status won't be officially confirmed until 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. EDT kickoff, but it looks like his fantasy managers can plan on having him available.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Treated as game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) looked good Friday in his return to practice, but he'll be treated as a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Held out of practice the previous two days, Godwin apparently closed out the week with limited participation, setting him up for a 'questionable' designation on the final injury report. Coach Bruce Arians sounded optimistic after Friday's practice, but he wasn't quite willing to commit to Godwin playing in the game. The Buccaneers and Rams are scheduled for a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Taking part in Friday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) is taking part in Friday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Godwin did not suit up for the Buccaneers' first two practice sessions of the week, but he was able to get out there Friday, which bodes well for his chances of taking part Week 4. His official status for Sunday's matchup with the Rams will be revealed when the Buccaneers release their final injury report of the week.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Sits out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's injury report, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

This was more or less the expectation when Godwin wasn't spotted on the field during the part of practice open to the media. His status for Week 4 will become more clear upon the release of Friday's injury report. If Godwin begins to trend toward a DNP, Mike Evans would have a healthy share of targets available to him, while tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate would be in line for additional work.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Missing from practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hip) wasn't spotted on the field at the portion of Thursday's practice that was open to the media, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Godwin appears set to miss his second straight practice in a row to begin Week 4 prep, clouding his availability for Sunday's game against the Rams. The receiver's status for the weekend likely won't be formally established until after Friday's practice, but if Godwin ends up sitting out Sunday, Mike Evans -- who busted out for eight catches for 190 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 3 loss to the Giants -- would represent the obvious top target in the Bucs' passing game.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Dealing with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Godwin didn't practice Wednesday due to a hip injury, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Godwin played 96 percent of the offensive snaps in Sunday's 32-31 loss to the Giants, turning four targets into three catches for 40 yards. He also didn't reach the end zone for the first time in three contests to start the season. With a hip issue in tow, Godwin's practice reps will be something to watch as the week goes on.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Makes minimal impact versus Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin caught three of four targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 32-31 loss to the Giants.

Godwin took a back seat to Mike Evans, who exploded for 190 yards and three touchdowns in this one. He still tied for second on the team in targets, but he did little of note outside of a 20-yard gain, which accounted for half his output. Godwin totaled 174 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 15 catches across the first two games, but this was a reminder that he's still the second option in the passing attack behind Evans. Still, both wideouts should have room to produce next Sunday on the road against the Rams.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Eclipses century mark in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin brought in eight of nine targets for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 20-14 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

Godwin's reception and receiving yardage totals led both squads for the night, as the third-year wideout displayed excellent routes and hands throughout the contest. Godwin's 20-yard touchdown reception late in the first half also erased a 6-3 deficit for the Buccaneers and served as his second in as many games to open the campaign. Notably, Godwin has logged 15 targets to Mike Evans' 13 over the first pair of contests, and although there's no question Evans will be a pivotal part of the offense, Godwin appears to be making the distinction between the No.1 and No. 2 receiver roles a thin one. With his first 100-yard effort of the season now under his belt, Godwin will look to continue his strong start to the campaign against the Giants in a Week 3 home matchup a week from this Sunday.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Gets into end zone during loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin brought in three of six targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 31-17 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Godwin was the only offensive player for the Buccaneers to cross the goal line and have it stick Sunday, as he logged a 10-yard scoring grab in the third quarter. The touchdown salvaged an otherwise underwhelming fantasy line for the third-year receiver, who's expected to have a significant role in coach Bruce Arians' offense. Naturally, Jameis Winston's ragged performance didn't help Godwin's prospects, and neither did the frequent duress that limited the quarterback's ability to look downfield. Godwin will look to up his numbers across the board on a short turnaround when the Buccaneers take on the Panthers in a Week 2 Thursday night tilt.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Leads team in receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin caught four of six targets for 52 yards during Friday's 13-12 preseason win over the Browns.

With Mike Evans on the sidelines, Godwin served as the team's go-to pass catcher and commanded all his targets in just one half of play. He led the team in receiving yardage and averaged an acceptable 13.0 yards per catch despite a poor night from Jameis Winston. Godwin shouldn't play much, if any, during Thursday's preseason finale against the Cowboys, but he seems ready for what could be a very productive season.
