Fantasy football draft: Where to target Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin

After a disappointing season last year, expectations for Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin should be tempered entering 2021. Below, we look at Chris Godwin's 2021 fantasy football average draft position (ADP) and where you should draft him.

Godwin, with now-New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston leading the charge, exploded onto the scene in 2019, with 1,333 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns. He had the 17th-most targets and the third-most yards among receivers.

While Bucs current QB, Tom Brady , is better than Winston, there's no denying Godwin was more involved in Tampa Bay's run-and-gun offense led by Winston. His numbers declined in 2020 as the team also brought in WR Antonio Brown to compete for targets late in the season.

Sharing the targets with Brown and WR Mike Evans hurt Godwin's fantasy production, and it may force some managers to shy away from the 25-year-old this season.

Godwin is being selected as the 16th receiver. It's a fair spot to draft him, especially as concerns over his usage will continue to rise.

At 62nd overall, Godwin is being looked at as an early sixth-round pick in standard leagues.

He has gone as high as No. 7 and as low as No. 105. He is the first Buccaneers player taken off the board after Brady.

Where should you take Chris Godwin in your fantasy football draft?

Godwin should still be the top volume threat for the Bucs, making him an ideal PPR target.

In standard leagues, a late-fourth or early-fifth round pick is great value, and for PPR leagues, he should slide up a touch, potentially being taken at the start of the fourth round.

The production is still there, and if Godwin would've played all 16 games last season, he'd be a top-20 receiver in terms of receptions. He will consistently get targets, and he's a safe bet.

With Evans and Brown alongside an aging Brady, don't expect him to mimic his 2019 production, though. The upside is limited, but the floor is also relatively high for the young wideout.
