Chris Godwin has struggled to stay healthy so far this season, frustrating fantasy football managers who spent an early draft pick on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' star wideout.

Godwin was back at practice this week after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 3, and he looks set to suit up against the Green Bay Packers, solidifying his fantasy football value.

The new-look Bucs offense hasn't had much of an opportunity to work together this season, as Godwin has only played in two games, leaving Tom Brady operating without his duo of elite wideouts for most of the year.

Godwin and Brady showed a great rapport in those two games, however. Brady targeted Godwin a combined 13 times in Weeks 1 and 3 (compared to 8 times for Mike Evans), and Godwin turned those targets into 11 receptions, 143 yards and 1 touchdown.

Godwin should reclaim his role as Brady's No. 1 receiver this week, making him a strong fantasy option even in a tough matchup against shutdown corner Jaire Alexander and the Green Bay Packers.
