We all know the Bucs have nice large receivers. However how nice are they relating to fantasy soccer? There’s just one soccer to share between them on a really proficient roster. And that’s even earlier than we get to Rob Gronkowski’s choice to return or retire.
Jaime Eisner of The Draft Community listed his high 100 fantasy soccer large receivers for the 2022 season. Among the many group had been three Bucs throughout the high 35 of the rankings, which is taken into account extra of the higher echelon gamers.
Mike Evans was the top-rated of the Bucs trio coming in at No. 7. Subsequent was Chris Godwin at No. 30, adopted by new Bucs receiver Russell Gage at No. 34.
There isn’t any situation with the rating of Evans, who was second amongst receivers with 14 touchdowns final 12 months. There’s no drawback with Gage both, contemplating he’s on a brand new staff as a definitive third receiver.
Godwin’s Damage Might Play A Issue
What I do disagree with is having Godwin at No. 30 with a few of the names in entrance of him. I’m properly conscious that Godwin is coming off a severe ACL harm and that might think about too how a lot he performs subsequent season.
Earlier than the harm, Godwin was lighting it up into Week 14. As much as that time he recorded 98 catches for 1,103 yards and 5 receiving touchdowns together with a speeding rating. Not solely did he nonetheless lead the Bucs in receiving regardless of lacking three video games, he was nonetheless fifteenth in yards and eleventh for receptions in the complete NFL.
The harm shall be an element this 12 months. If that’s the rationale for the drop, I perceive it. It’s simply powerful to see Godwin at No. 30 when you could have a few the others gamers forward. There’s Michael Thomas, who hasn’t performed in a full 12 months in New Orleans. And Jaylen Waddle, who has Tua Tagovailoa throwing him the ball with Tyreek Hill now within the Miami offense. Rookie Treylon Burks can also be forward of Godwin. Whereas I like Burks, he’s but to play a down within the NFL.
One other Bucs WR Simply Makes It On
The Bucs had another receiver on the High 100 record with Tyler Johnson simply making it at No. 98. Johnson had 36 receptions for 360 yards final 12 months. This season, he’ll compete with many large receivers on the Bucs roster to make the staff. Johnson might doubtlessly compete for large receiver 4 behind the opposite aforementioned receivers.
You’ll be able to see Eisner’s full record of the highest 100 fantasy soccer receivers right here.
