From a fantasy perspective, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers had a down game in Week 1 against the Saints. Chris Godwin led the way with 6 catches and 79 yards. However, after being placed in concussion protocol on Wednesday.

Chris Godwin Fantasy Outlook

While it was unclear how this would affect his Week 2 status at first, the latest update doesn't look good for Godwin or his fantasy managers.

This would be a big blow to the Bucs receiving corps, as well as his fantasy managers, who more than likely are relying on him as a WR1.

Scotty Miller Fantasy Outlook

If Godwin does indeed sit out, Scotty Miller should be in line to benefit the most. He was the second-most productive wideout behind Godwin last week, hauling in 5 catches for 73 yards. Tom Brady was clearly looking for Miller early and often, and without Godwin in the picture that should only increase.

Mike Evans Fantasy Outlook

If it were not for a late touchdown catch, Mike Evans would have thrown up a goose egg in Week 1. Still seemingly dealing with a hamstring injury, Evans should definitely see an uptick in targets if Godwin sits, but what he does with them is still a big question mark.

Carolina presents a favorable matchup for everyone on the Bucs offense, so regardless of Godwin's or Evans' conditions, if they're in the Bucs lineup, they should probably be in yours too.
