Buccaneers | More on Mike Evans incident

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 13:18:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was involved in an altercation outside a nightclub in March, and not this past Saturday, according to his agent. There were no arrests made in the incident that was caught on tape.

Fantasy Tip: If the incident occurred in March, it would not fall under the personal conduct policy as Evans was not employed by a team. This should not change his fantasy football status.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans named starter

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 07:21:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was named a starter, alongside WRs Vincent Jackson and Chris Owusu, by head coach Lovie Smith. Owusu will start in the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is a WR4 with upside that could lump into the WR3 mix over some aging veterans with little upside. Owusu is worth consideration for a final roster spot, but he still has much to prove.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans lining up inside

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 08:07:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans frequently lined up in the slot or between the slot receiver and the outside wideout in trips formation in practice Sunday, Aug. 10. Head coach Lovie Smith said that could become more of a common position for Evans, who spent most of his college time lining up outside the numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is a downfield matchup nightmare for defenders, and switching up his line-of-scrimmage station would boost his potential to contribute right out of the gate. He can be drafted as highly as a WR4 in the middle rounds of non-PPR games and could deliver a miniature version of Vincent Jackson's numbers.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is working out with Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall in Miami and said he has no lingering issues from a hamstring injury. He also said he needs to drop 7 to 10 pounds. "Physically, I'm not in tip-top shape. I'm getting back into my game shape," said Evans. "As far as injury-wise, I feel good. I've been running, and I feel 100 percent. I've got to lose more weight. I'm too heavy right now. But the workouts I've been doing, I'll be fine. I'll be ready."

Buccaneers | Mike Evans selected seventh overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 17:57:45 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Texas A&M WR Mike Evans with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is a clone of Vincent Jackson (who's still a fantasy WR2) and will eventually take over for the aging V-Jax. The rookie will be a WR4 in fantasy leagues with big yardage potential. Josh McCown now has another pair of big wideouts following his time in Chicago with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. The veteran slinger, under Jeff Tedford, is a fantasy backup that could dominate in the right match-up.

Steelers | Need height at receiver

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 20:29:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Steelers might select a wide receiver with one of their first two picks, perhaps even with the No. 15 pick overall. If Texas A&M WR Mike Evans is available, the team likely would not hesitate to add him given the small stature of the other receivers on their roster. The team likes Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham, too, but he is right around 6-foot, and they seek a much taller target.

From a subjective list of the top 14 wide receivers, only Matthews was a senior.

49ers | GM covets players with long arms

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 23:08:57 -0800

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke has made no secret of his preference for players with long arms. Baalke was on the record in 2011 praising 49ers LB Aldon Smith for having 35 3/8-inch arms, citing how it improved his chances of making shoestring tackles. San Francisco's 2013 rookies averaged 34-inch arms.

Wide receiver is a position of need for the 49ers in the upcoming NFL Draft, so they could show first-round interest in Texas A&M's Mike Evans and Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin, whose arms measure 34 7/8 inches and 35 1/8 inches, respectively.
