Evans enjoyed his fifth straight 1,000-yard season, setting a career high in yards with 1,524. He was ninth overall in fantasy scoring because of his big reception and yardage totals. Evans had eight 100-yard games. He had at least four receptions all but two games. Evans will continue to be the top target in the Bucs high-powered passing game. A new coach could mean even better things for Evans this year. Evans is a huge target with an enormous wing span. He does a fabulous job of catching the back-shoulder fade. His size and strength makes him a very tough cover in the passing game. He does lack that elite speed, but it hasn't hampered his play since entering the league. Fantasy Outlook: Evans is a legit No. 1 fantasy receiver. He is going to get his chances on a weekly basis in this offense. He really has the potential to be a top-five fantasy receiver this year. His reception and touchdown numbers can improve some from last year. He can get around 90 receptions for 1,300 or so yards and 11 touchdowns.
Chris Godwin was somewhat of a breakout performer in 2018, as he came out of the gates with scores in his first three games. After the hype continued to swell, his play on the field started to deflate, as he only had three other games that you would consider start-worthy through the remainder of the year. However, that Buccaneers offense had a lot of mouths to feed last year, but two of those mouths in DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries have moved to pastures new. As things get going for the 2019 season, Godwin finds himself as one of the most talked about names in regards to potential sleepers. Yes, there is some excitement with the Bruce Arians offense in town, but Godwin must improve his consistency to be worthy of his WR20 ADP. He will face the 18th ranked schedule for receivers and not mention will be fighting for targets with Mike Evans and O.J. Howard. Therefore, I say pump the brakes on the hype for Godwin. He has a WR2 ceiling in any format, but with the up and down play you see from him he most likely brings you WR3 value.
