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.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans idle Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:01:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) is out of practice at the minicamp Thursday, April 28. Evans tweaked something at the end of the first day of the camp.

Fantasy Tip: If he's watching from the sidelines, it's most likely minor. Evans was limited most of the preseason last year due to a hamstring issue but still delivered a solid 74-1,206-3 season. The three scores was a huge step back from the 12 in his rookie year, so this year will be big in deciphering if Evans is a WR1 or a WR2. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy with room for more.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans acknowledges slump

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 13:38:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said it's fair to say he had a sophomore slump last season, adding that he needs to get back to his fundamentals.

Fantasy Tip: Evans actually increased his catches (74) and yards (1,206) from his rookie season, but he only scored three times compared to 12 touchdowns in 2014. He also led the NFL with 11 drops, which may be the reason for the reference to fundamentals. If Evans can hold on to a few more balls and catch a few more touchdowns, then he should be back near WR1 territory.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans led league in drops in 2015

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 10:12:50 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers new offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Todd Monken stated in his introductory news conference that his top priority will be to coach the team's receivers. His top priority will be finding a way to cut down on WR Mike Evans' league-leading 11 drops.

Fantasy Tip: Evans saw his catch and yardage totals increase from his rookie year, but watched his touchdown total plummet from 12 in 2014 to three last season with rookie QB Jameis Winston under center. Evans is a prime bounce-back candidate that owners should target as a high-upside WR2 as he enters his third season.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans underperforms in 2015

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 15:55:55 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans scored just three times and only caught 74 passes on 147 targets last season.

Fantasy Tip: Evans did tally 1,206 yards, but the lack of touchdowns really haunted his fantasy value, especially after scoring 12 times in his rookie year. Evans should have plenty of opportunities again next season under new head coach Dirk Koetter.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans held out of end zone

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:45:00 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in four receptions for 61 yards in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has not jelled exactly the way fantasy owners hoped. While, yes, he has 1,046 receiving yards which is nothing to sneeze at, he has just three touchdowns overall, and only one since Nov. 22. He has devolved from a WR1 to more of a WR2 fantasy option this season due to his lack of scoring.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans in elite company

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 19:09:14 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans went over 1,000 yards for the year in Week 15, becoming the eighth receiver in NFL history to eclipse 1,000 yards in his first two seasons in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is one of the up-and-coming receivers in the game, and he is a very attractive option at FantasyScore in Week 16 against a weak Chicago defense.
