Chris Godwin
The Buccaneers Plan to Move Chris Godwin Back to the Slot
1 month ago

Buccaneers wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon is planning on deploying Chris Godwin in the slot a majority of the time in 2024.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon said at a press conference that Chris Godwin will be moving back to the slot as his primary role. While seemingly minor on the surface, this will make fantasy gamers’ ears perk up knowing how well Chris Godwin plays in the slot. 


Chris Godwin famously had a breakout season in 2019 where he had a 50.5% slot snap rate which was 12th in the league compared to 2023 where Godwin was 26th in the league at a 32% slot snap rate. This is welcome news as Godwin in 2019 posted 86 receptions (11th overall), 1,333 receiving yards (3rd overall), and had 9 total touchdowns. That year, Chris Godwin was also number 1 overall for yards after the catch with 574.


Chris Godwin is currently going 77th overall in the 7th round on UnderDog and is the 44th ranked wide receiver in our Dynasty rankings. Chris Godwin at 28 is a sneaky buy in Dynasty and won’t require a massive overpay.
