Gameday update: It is hard to diagnose who will be the Bucs’ WR2 each week. Last week, Chris Godwin established himself as the top option, while Antonio Brown played a significant amount of snaps in Week 9. This week, they are facing a Rams’ defense that is only giving up 14.6 points per game to opposing receivers. LA will try to take Evans out of the picture, leaving either Godwin or AB to step up. ESPN projects Godwin and Brown to score 8.2 and 7.2 fantasy points.
Mike Evans is the Tampa Bat Buccaneers’ top wide receiver but the WR2 spot is up for grabs. Chris Godwin kicked off the year as as the WR2 but now has to compete with Antonio Brown, who’s slowly getting more accustomed to Tampa Bay’s offense. Let’s go over the fantasy outlook for AB and Godwin ahead of the Buccaneers’ Week 11 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Football analysis: Bucs WRs Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown
Brown came on strong in his first game as a Buccaneers in Week 9 and was on the field for 78 percent of his new teams snaps. He had a modest outing and caught three passes for 31 yards. In Week 10 Brown played less than half of Tampa Bay’s snaps while Godwin had one his best games of the year. Godwin caught all six of his passes for a season-high 92 yards in Week 10 and has taken part in at least 90 percent of the Buccaneers’ snaps for two straight weeks. His consistent involvement makes him seem like the better option, but he and AB could be risky plays against the Rams’ dominant secondary.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Consider starting Godwin as a WR2. Brown could be worth a flex play in deeper leagues.
