Buccaneers | Mike Evans feels he was held back

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 19:00:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is expected to play more on an island in 2015 as the "X" receiver in Tampa Bay's new offense, which is the same role offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter created for Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones during Koetter's time with that organization. He said Monday, June 29, that the QB carousell of Josh McCown and Mike Glennon last year held him back, too, so he is excited about a potential breakout with QB Jameis Winston.

Fantasy Tip: Evans posted huge numbers last season, finishing with over 1,000 yards while scoring 12 touchdowns. If he can improve on those numbers he will be a Top 5 fantasy option at his position. Look for him to fly off the board rather early on draft day.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans works out with Randy Moss

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:51:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he worked out with former NFL WR Randy Moss for a week this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Evans had a terrific rookie season with 1,051 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games. Evans should be one of the team's top targets this season and likely will be selected in one of the earlier rounds of fantasy drafts.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans being used as 'X' WR

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 17:49:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he's being used exclusively as an 'X' wide receiver. Evans was used as the 'Z' receiver as a rookie, but he said he likes the move and "being on an island."

Fantasy Tip: Evans demonstrated the size and skill necessary to win just about any one-on-one battle in his rookie season. Evans should be selected as a WR3 heading into his sophomore season, and he has WR2 upside.

Buccaneers | Players comfortable with TB offense

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 13:53:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston and WRs Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are becoming acclimated to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's offense. The three players said they've become more comfortable with the offense and now need to learn more of the terminology that comes with it.

Fantasy Tip: Evans and Jackson may take some time to get used to Koetter's offense and a new rookie quarterback, but from a season-long perspective Evans and Jackson should be drafted as a WR1 and WR2, respectively. Winston should be drafted as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Buccaneers | Mike Davis back at practice

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 18:47:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, June 2, at organized team activities (OTAs) after a "tweak" to his hamstring during drills Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Davis does not sound like he suffered a major injury, and he should be fine going forward. He’ll be a Top 10 fantasy option at his position, and early-round selection, come draft day.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans hurts hamstring

Thu, 28 May 2015 13:45:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring during organized team activities Thursday, May 28. Head coach Lovie Smith said Evans' injury isn't major.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Evans will be fine, especially since Smith added that Evans tweaked his hamstring last year. He ended up catching 68 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns. Plus, Evans still has plenty of time to recover, not that a tweak takes a lot of time to recover from. He should be drafted as a high-end WR2 to low-end WR1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans approves of Jameis Winston

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:36:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has received the approval of WR Mike Evans. "He can sit in the pocket, deliver the ball and that's more opportunities for the receivers," Evans said, emphasizing his desire for a pocket passer.

Fantasy Tip: Winston's ability to be composed and pass from the pocket will benefit both Evans and Vincent Jackson, who can both spread the field and score on any play downfield. Assuming Winston starts, it could take some time for him to acclimate to the professional level, but Jackson and Evans should still be in the WR2 neighborhood with WR1 potential. Winston, meanwhile, is a backup fantasy quarterback for his rookie season, even with his valuable weapons.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans wants to improve

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:19:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans wants to improve his route running and his understanding of coverages for the 2015 season. Evans added that he has two other goals of making the playoffs and making the Pro Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Evans kind of makes it sound like he had an off season in his rookie campaign, but 68 catches for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns isn't a lot to improve on. Evans is in WR2 territory with WR1 upside if he can develop good chemistry with QB Jameis Winston.

Buccaneers | Yards tough to find for Mike Evans

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 20:44:29 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has had less than 50 receiving yards in each of his last five games, but he has been targeted 46 times over the same stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has remained a serviceable fantasy option by hauling in four scores over the same five games, but since his 209-yard outburst in Week 11, opposing defenses may be paying a little more attention to the rookie.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans into end zone again

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 18:23:16 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. He has now scored at least one touchdown in four consecutive games.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option, even as his price tag has continued to rise. He continues to score touchdowns and pay for himself.
