Entering the 2019 season the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had hopes of making the playoffs. In reality, they were never playoff contenders. The season was highlighted by three things. One, Jameis Winston because the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 30 plus touchdowns and 30 plus interceptions. Ironically, the Buccaneers’ season ended in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons on a pick-six that gave Winston his 30th interception of the season. Two, Chris Godwin‘s breakout season. Despite missing 2.5 games because of a hamstring injury, Godwin finished third in the league with 1,333 receiving yards. The duo of him and Mike Evans might be the best in the league. Three, Shaquil Barrett had a breakout season, leading the league with 19.5 sacks. Entering the season he had 14 career sacks.

The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 wide receivers for the 2019 season.
To put it mildly, it has been an underwhelming couple of years for Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson, but in 2019 he is going to remind the NFL that he can still hang with the best of them. Fantasy owners are still salivating over Robinson’s 2015 season, where he dropped 1,400 yards and 14 TDs to finish as the WR6, but he is finally going to pay-off for those who give him one last chance.
