This week, the New Orleans Saints head to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers, in a game that could be a really high-scoring affair. The over/under has been set at 50.5, making it the third-highest total of the week, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

And with star cornerback Marshon Lattimore officially ruled out for the Saints, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin both get a boost in their fantasy values this week.

Both Evans and Godwin have been terrific producers for fantasy this season, sitting second and third overall at the WR position in PPR formats, respectively.

In the first matchup between these two teams, Evans drew the short straw and was shadowed by Lattimore all day. This led to him being completely shut out, failing to reel in any of his three targets.

Godwin benefited from softer coverage in that matchup, catching seven passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Without Lattimore, the Saints could have a much tougher time covering these elite wideouts come Sunday.

With Lattimore out, Evans and Godwin enter this matchup the as WR4 and WR8 in our Week 11 PPR rankings, respectively.
