Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson could be held out for the remainder of the season due to a nagging thumb injury. If so, look for Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries to continue their reign of fantasy production. 


With Jackson out of the lineup in the team's Week 13 win against the Carolina Panthers, the duo combined for 12 catches on 15 targets for 162 receiving yards and two touchdowns -- Godwin finished with 40 more yards, while Humphries finished with two more catches. 

This week's matchup against the New Orleans Saints provides both players with another golden fantasy opportunity once again. After all, the Saints are allowing 38.7 FanDuel fantasy points per game this season to wide receivers -- the most in the NFL. 

The feeling of optimism is only further boosted by the fact that Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston has resurrected his season, and possibly his career, since returning to the starting job in Week 12. The former No. 1 pick has thrown for six touchdowns and one interception in his last two-and-a half games of football, in addition to completing 72.7 percent of his passes.


According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Saints are 8-point favorites in Tampa Bay this Sunday, with an over/under of 56 points. There's a good chance that New Orleans puts up a ton of points, with three extra days to prepare for this game, so look for the Bucs to be playing in catch-up mode all afternoon with Godwin and Humphries chipping away admirably in the yards and receptions department. Expect another 10-plus point fantasy day from both of them.
