Fantasy football analysis

Godwin was a full participant in Friday’s practice, but is still heading into the game with a questionable designation. If Godwin plays, we can expect to see him take targets from Trey Palmer. Mike Evans may also see a few less targets from Baker Mayfield, but he should still be a major factor in the matchup.

NFL DFS analysis

Godwin is valued at $5900 in daily fantasy at DraftKings Sportsbook this week. The Packers are allowing the eighth-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in the league.

Betting analysis

If Godwin doesn’t play, Mike Evans could see a higher total of targets and receiving yards, but keep in mind that the Packers’ passing defense has been limiting opposing WRs.
