Buccaneers | Mike Evans targeted 17 times

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 18:48:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted six receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, and he was targeted 17 times.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is showing why he was a high-round pick in all fantasy leagues, especially PPR formats. He is a catch machine and Jameis Winston targets him early and often. He might find the room a little harder to come by in Week 3 against the visiting Los Angeles Rams and their suffocating defense.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans won't be shadowed

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 05:15:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans won't be shadowed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 2, according to Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher. Bettcher said there will be situations Peterson stays with Evans, but sometimes he will not.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is teetering on the WR1/WR2 divide, and he needs to avoid hamstring injuries and drops in order to get over the hump. It's not a good matchup for him this week, and we're leaning to that WR2 side in Week 2.

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 20:46:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted nine receptions for 99 yards and a 45-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted a team-high seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Evans was a high-round fantasy selection, especially in PPR formats, and he showed why. As long as he can maintain his focus all season long and avoid the drops, he is a high-end WR1 in all formats.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans sheds weight

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:22:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans lost 15 pounds to around 220-225 pounds, which he played at in college. Evans has also worked on the mental aspect, which includes letting go of his mistakes.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has been dogged by hamstring injuries in his young career, and this could be a big season for him in an up-and-coming offense. He's a solid WR2 against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans makes presence felt

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 20:59:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in two receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in a cameo in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Evans certainly looked the part of a WR1, and he has been flying off the board at the tail end of Round 1 or early part of Round 2 in PPR fantasy formats.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans grabs everything

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 12:49:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught all seven of his targets during practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is coming off a disappointing sophomore campaign, but it's hardly hindered his fantasy value. The third-year wideout should be viewed as a fringe No. 1 receiver worth targeting any time into Round 2 of drafts. Expect positive regression in the touchdown department after Evans reached the end zone just three times in 2015.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans working on injury prevention

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:57:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said Wednesday, July 27, he's doing a lot more preventative maintenance to reduce hamstring issues.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has had multiple hamstring issues limit him in his two-year career, and that was a factor in him only having three scores last season. These issues restrict him to a high-end WR2, but he could surpass that ceiling in his third year.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans discusses his lack of focus

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 05:53:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he lost focus during games last season. "You know, I wasn't focused in some games and I have to do that better. I have to practice more. I have to get better in practice with it. It just comes with repetition. Last season is behind me."

Fantasy Tip: Progression isn't always statistically linear, and if a disappointing 2015 showing serves as motivation for Evans to put it all together in his third season, fantasy owners will reap the rewards. View Evans as a fringe No. 1 receiver with upside.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans worked with Jamies Winston

Sun, 29 May 2016 12:10:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and QB Jameis Winston have worked through countless routes together and have spent time with each other both on and off the field this offseason. Evans has been invited by Winston several times to break down film. Evans said he hasn't yet seen a work ethic like Winston's.

Fantasy Tip: The star seems to be on the rise for the Buccaneers and their offense. And despite Evans' propensity for drops, he's still a WR1 candidate in standard leagues.
