Chris Godwin and the Buccaneers seem to have an injury problem. A week after Mike Evans was injured, Godwin and Scotty Miller both suffered hamstrings last week. Going into Week 16 and many fantasy football championship games, the Bucs may regard Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as their top two WRs, making them both resignation targets.

Chris Godwin playing week 16?
The issues are compounded by the fact that Tampa Bay plays Saturday afternoon at Week 16. Monday morning, Ian Rapoport said the Buccaneers did not expect to have Godwin at Week 16. This is after Bruce Arians told reporters after last Sunday’s game that Godwin’s injury “doesn’t look good”. There were no post-game comments specifically for Miller.

Breshad Perriman, Justin Watson is worth giving up pickups
For now, one would expect Perriman and Watson to be Tampa Bay’s first two WRs in Week 16 in a favorable matchup against the Texans. The former Perriman star comes off three touchdowns in Week 15, some of which came before Godwin was injured. That will probably be Jameis Winston’s top goal and a marginal WR2 in a happy offense. Watson also deserves at least the attention of FLEX in the good matchup after showing his steaks two weeks ago when he caught five eight goals for 59 yards and a score. Tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate will also participate.
If Miller somehow recovers from his injury but not from Godwin, it will complicate things for Watson. Miller missed a fall before leaving the game, and Winston showed that he liked him throughout the season. Expect Perriman to be the top player here independently and one that you should definitely target with a strong FAAB discharge or bid this week.
