Games status: Chris Godwin is active for Week 4 SNF vs. Chiefs.
Game day Update: Godwin is expected to play on Sunday.
The #Bucs should have their playmakers back. WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring), WR Russell Gage (hamstring), and WR Julio Jones (knee) are all expected to play today vs. the #Chiefs, per me and @TomPelissero.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 2, 2022
There’s a chance Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin could return to action for the first time since Week 1. Godwin is still dealing with a hamstring injury. He practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Friday this week, sitting on Thursday for a rest day. Godwin has a questionable designation, and the team said Friday that he’ll be a game-time decision.
The Bucs are on the road to play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.
Fantasy football implications
The Bucs are being cautious with Godwin after he re-aggravated his knee injury in Week 1—he suffered a torn ACL last season. Being a game-time decision will certainly put fantasy managers in a tough spot since it’s a primetime game.
The Bucs also have Mike Evans back this week after a one-game suspension, and Russell Gage is expected to play. Julio Jones is also questionable and will be a game-time decision, further clouding the receiving picture.
Putting Godwin in your lineup this week is going to come down to a matter of risk tolerance. It might be best to consider other options.
