Continuing our analysis of the top winners and losers from each division post NFL draft, today we’re going to take a deep dive into the NFC South. One of the best divisions in football from this past year, the NFC South has a lot of potential to bring success to your fantasy teams. In June ADP, this division had 15 players in the top 100.
Which veterans saw their situations improve from the NFL Draft to potentially move into/stay in this group? Conversely, which players saw their potential value this season take a hit? Let’s get into it.
Chris Godwin, WR TB
The hype train on Godwin was been rolling steadily ever since his true breakout performance in week 17 last season, where he registered over 100 yards in Tampa Bay’s last game. The truth is, Godwin had about as good a rookie season as anyone could have expected. While his game was developing the first eight weeks of the regular season, over the last eight weeks, he posted 26 catches for 450 yards. The Buccaneers added slot man Justin Watson late in this year’s draft, leaving a role on the outside for Godwin all the more realistic. The coaching staff and fantasy owners alike have faith in Godwin to make a big leap in year two.
