Buccaneers | Mike Evans wants to improve

Tue, 22 May 2018 15:36:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is focused on improving his awareness and his yards after catch heading into his fifth season. "I've got another hurdle to jump over, and I think I'll be much better this year," Evans said. "I've got to do better in [yards after catch], and I think if I do, I'll be the most complete receiver."

Fantasy Tip: Four years in a row now Evans has reached at least 1,000 yards. His touchdowns were down last year, but Tampa Bay's offense as a whole sputtered based on expectations. Still, Evans is an elite wide receiver, worthy of WR1 consideration.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans lands huge extension

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 13:07:40 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans agreed to a five-year contract extension worth $82.5 million on Friday, March 9. The deal includes $55 million guaranteed, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Evans, who has topped 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first four seasons, is now the second-highest paid receiver in football behind Antonio Brown. Although his 2017 campaign was a disappointment for most of his owners, he already has two 12-touchdown seasons on his resume and remains an elite WR1 for fantasy purposes. The 24-year-old should be entering his prime within the next year or two, which is a scary thought for defenses if Jameis Winston can eventually become a top-10 quarterback in the league.

Buccaneers | No talks ongoing for Mike Evans

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 13:56:31 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and the Buccaneers are not currently negotiating a new deal, according to Evans' agent. Evans' fifth-year option was picked up last year, so he will be earning $13.2 million in 2018. Both parties will evaluate Evans' contract when the time comes, but for now he's going to focus on playing out his current deal, his agent added.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is one of the best wide receivers in the league when he's healthy and clicking with Jameis Winston. Last season was a substantial down year for Evans, but don't let that keep you from drafting him as a WR1. Odds are 2017's results will be an anomaly.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted six receptions for 107 yards on eight targets in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans produces first TD in weeks

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 22:11:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans registered five receptions on eight targets for 79 yards and his first touchdown catch since Week 6 in the team's loss Monday, Dec. 18, opposite the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Evans finally snapped his touchdown drought and it basically could not have come at a better time for his owners. He was also able to manufacture his most receiving yards in a month. Even so, unless he explodes in the final two games, 2017 will go down as the most disappointing campaign of Evans' career, as he's on pace for career lows in receptions and yards. In addition, he has just four touchdowns after plating 12 scores a year ago.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans continues to disappoint

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:12:28 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted just two receptions for 25 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions

Fantasy Tip: Evans hasn't had a 100-yard game this season, and he wasn't even close in this one. There have been some quarterback issues in Tampa this season, as Jameis Winston has been in and out of the lineup, but he was there in this game and he did next to nothing. He was drafted as a must-start WR1, but lately he has performed only like a WR3 or flex option. Not good.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans silent in Week 13

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 15:59:37 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to two grabs for 33 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is working on five straight games without a touchdown, and he hasn't had a 100-yard game yet this season. He might be one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football in 2017.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans finishes with 78 yards

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:22:12 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught six passes for 78 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has been targeted at least 10 times in four of the last five games and has at least 75 yards in three of those games. He continues to be a solid option for owners and can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
