Friday PM update: Godwin was limited in practice all week, but has been removed from the injury report. He shouldn’t have any restrictions in a good matchup.


Friday update: Godwin practiced again on Friday and appears ready to go against the Falcons, who he has played extremely well against in his career.

Thursday update: Chris Godwin was once again practicing on Thursday, per Rick Stroud. Godwin appears to be over the worst of his recent injuries, especially when you see that he played more snaps than any wide receiver in the league last week. Play him against the Falcons in fantasy.


Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin was limited in Wednesday practice with a knee injury as Tampa Bay prepares to take on the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday. Godwin has been dealing with knee issues since he tore his ACL at the end of the 2021 season.

However, he told the press today that he expects to be able to play this weekend.

Fantasy football implications

Godwin has only appeared in two games so far this season and has grabbed just ten receptions. If he sits out, it won’t affect the regular play-calling too much. Mike Evans and Russell Gage are two sure things this weekend as Julio Jones and Breshad Perriman remain listed as questionable.
