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.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans posted 92 yards in win

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 17:32:39 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 92 yards on 10 targets in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has yet to post a 100-yard game through nine outings and he hasn't found the end zone in three games. He'll look to bounce back in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. You can't bench him in fantasy, as he is still somewhat productive, but he is more of a WR2 right now.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans' appeal denied

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 15:19:12 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Nov. 7. He will not play in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries stand to benefit the most with Evans out, although they will have backup Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing their way. Fitzpatrick is not Jameis Winston, but he is a veteran who has succeeded in the past. Jackson makes for a sneaky WR2 while Humphries is a serviceable WR3 or flex. Cameron Brate remains a TE1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans suspended one game

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 13:08:35 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has been suspended for the Buccaneers' Week 10 contest for his involvement in an altercation Sunday, Nov. 5, versus the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers will now be without Jameis Winston and Evans next week. DeSean Jackson becomes Tampa Bay's No. 1 receiver and can still be started as a WR2 or WR3 against the New York Jets next week. Adam Humphries now demands flex consideration while Cameron Brate is a worthy TE1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans limited to one grab

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:02:10 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to 13 yards on just one catch in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners can't be happy about his performance, and he probably should have been ejected anyway during the game after a cheap shot on Marshon Lattimore as he was portending to protect his injured quarterback. Winston and Lattimore had words on the sidelines, and Evans popped Lattimore in the back to touch off a fracas. Evans actually ended up with more penalty yards on the day than receiving yardage.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans limited to 60 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:54:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 60 yards on 10 targets in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has posted at least 60 yards in three straight outings, and six of his past seven games. This was his first game without a touchdown since Week 5, and his second-lowest yardage total of the season, however, to disappoint fantasy owners somewhat. He should bounce back in Week 9 and his first 100-yard day could be in the offing in a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints under the dome.

Buccaneers | Solid line for Mike Evans

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 18:45:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in a 30-27 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Evans put up a strong stat line against Buffalo's stout secondary, and he now has three touchdowns in his last four games. Expect more solid production from Evans against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans finishes with 95 yards and TD

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:34:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught three of his eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first time this year that Evans has been held below five catches, but it was also his most receiving yards to date thanks to multiple big plays. He remains a must-start WR1 regardless of the matchup.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans held in check

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 20:55:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches on eight targets for 49 yards in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup looked great on paper, but Evans delivered his most disappointing effort of the season. He draws a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals next time out, but Evans is still a must-start option.

Buccaneers | Solid line for Mike Evans

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 21:17:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has 32 targets through three games and remains the go-to option for Jameis Winston. He is a high-end WR1 heading into a Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots that could turn into a shootout.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans has solid outing

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:43:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 67 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Evans was facing a tough Vikings secondary this week but was able to make seven catches for the second straight week. He remains one of the better receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

Buccaneers | Tampa, Mike Evans start contract talk

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 07:06:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans still has two years left on his contract, but the Buccaneers have started preliminary contract extension talks with Evans, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has become one of the best receivers in the NFL, and the two sides have plenty of time to work out a long-term contract extension. He should be a starting fantasy option no matter the matchup.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans plays well in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:04:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Evans entered this season as one of the better receivers in the NFL and did not disappoint in his first game of the season. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in leagues next week even though he is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings secondary.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans out of practice

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 06:55:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 24, for the second straight day.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Dirk Koetter said the issue is nothing serious, but it's worth watching after Evans vaulted himself to WR1 status last season.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans catches five passes

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 20:31:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught five passes for 57 yards in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Evans finished in the top six in receptions (96), receiving yards (1,321) and touchdowns (12) in 2016 and will continue to be one of the top receivers in the NFL. He will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues and likely will be a first- or second-round pick in drafts.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans busy in preseason opener

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 20:07:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes on seven targets for 58 yards in a 23-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Evans led the NFL in targets last season, and despite some offseason additions to the passing attack, he was still the clear No. 1 option for Jameis Winston in this one. Evans is a midrange WR1 in any format.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans not expected to have big spike

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 09:40:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans isn't expected to make a big jump in numbers with the addition of WR DeSean Jackson. "I'm not sure (how much better he can get) from a numbers standpoint, but Mike's confidence is at an all-time high right now,'' head coach Dirk Koetter said. "And I think with Mike, like with a lot of our guys, the main goal is to win, not create stats. The goal is to win games.''

Fantasy Tip: Evans solidified himself as a WR1 last season with a 96-1,321-12 line. There isn't much room for improvement there, and if the team is cautioning expectations, it's a good idea to do so from a fantasy expectation. Evans is still in the WR1 window and can be considered after the first few are off the board.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans pumped for DeSean Jackson

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:19:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said it will be "awesome" to play with WR DeSean Jackson, and he believes they "could be one of the best tandems in the league."

Fantasy Tip: Evans was already one of the top fantasy receivers, and having Jackson to take the top off defenses should only help his value. Jackson can be a little big-play dependent, but he has enough upside to use as a WR3.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans' option picked up

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 09:09:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Evans had a monster 96-1,321-12 season last year, but he had very little help. He might not receive 175 targets again with DeSean Jackson in town. However, that addition should free up Evans more, and he's in the low-end WR1 mix in fantasy.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans not concerned about contract

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 10:06:08 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is entering this final season of the four-year rookie contract he signed in 2014 - the team has a club option for 2018 as well - and is due to make only $690,000 (plus a $1.7 million roster bonus in 2017). Despite the low pay relative to his position, Evans has yet to express any concern about being compensated on the level of some of the game's elite receivers. "I'm not worried about that stuff. It'll come, but I'm mainly focused on getting better and helping this team win," Evans said of a possible contract extension in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: The expectation is the Bucs will approach Evans about an extension this summer on par with the five-year, $71.25 million contract Julio Jones signed in 2015. The club option makes doing a deal less urgent, but Tampa Bay would be wise to lock up one of the game's best receivers long-term as quickly as possible. After posting 96 catches for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2016, Evans will be a first-round lock in fantasy drafts this spring and summer.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans consistent at home, on road

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 16:23:58 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught 51 passes for 668 yards and six touchdowns at home this season. He caught 45 passes for 653 yards and six touchdowns on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Evans was one of the most consistent option for fantasy owners this season and led the league in targets. He will continue to be the main target in the team's passing game and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season.

Buccaneers | New deal coming for Mike Evans?

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 18:17:02 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is eligible for a contract extension this offseason, and beat writer Mark Cook believes the Buccaneers should try to extend Evans before New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. receives a new deal and sets the market.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has 3,578 yards and 27 touchdowns in his first three seasons. He is a WR1 in any format and a top-five pick in dynasty leagues.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans busy in 2016

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 20:32:25 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans led the NFL with 175 targets during the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Jameis Winston looked Evans' way early and often, and it should be more of the same in 2017. Evans should be one of the first receivers off the board next year.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans scores to wrap up season

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 19:51:39 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in the Week 17 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ended up with 96 catches for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns, and he was targeted 175 times. Very rarely did he let his fantasy owners down in 2016, and he'll be a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy leagues for years to come.

Buccaneers | Another good game for Mike Evans

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 00:18:15 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 97 yards and a touchdown Saturday, Dec. 24, in a 31-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Evans was targeted eight times, and his almost perfect day on the field ended up going for naught in the end. Still, Evans remains a strong WR1 as he is clearly Jameis Winston's top target on a weekly basis.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans back at practice

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 09:11:01 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (rest) said he'll return to practice Wednesday, Dec. 21. Head coach Dirk Koetter said not to read much into Evans' rest day Tuesday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has had three off games in a row with an 11-139-0 line combined. He has a midrange matchup against the New Orleans Saints. You play him if you have him, but his recent stretch is concerning that he is wore down in these late stages.

Buccaneers | Dirk Koetter unconcerned with Mike Evans

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 14:16:45 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter is not concerned with WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) not practicing Tuesday, Dec. 20, believing, "I wouldn't read too much into anybody who was or wasn't out there today."

Fantasy Tip: This should be a relief for his fantasy owners, as it appears the team is just managing Evans' reps after Sunday night's draining game in Dallas. While it's certainly at least a little concerning that the 23-year-old hasn't reached 60 receiving yards, nor scored a touchdown, over the last three weeks, owners can take solace in the fact that he's healthy. As is normally the case, Evans is in the WR1 picture for upcoming fantasy championship games.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans held out of practice

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 11:15:02 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 20. He did do some work on the side, however.

Fantasy Tip: Evans' issue was not disclosed, but it doesn't seem too serious. He's had a disappointing couple of weeks lately, but he has one of his best matchups of the season this week against the New Orleans Saints. He's easily in WR1 territory despite his recent struggles.

Buccaneers | Another full practice for Mike Evans

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:02:32 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (not injury related) got in another full practice Friday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Evans rested on Wednesday but has been a regular back at practice since then. As a result, there's no reason to be concerned with him providing his usual stellar production in Sunday's desirable matchup with the Chargers. As always, he'll enter that contest as a respectable WR1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans rests Wednesday

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:37:44 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Evans and his wife recently had a baby, so that could be the reason for his absence. He's good to go for Week 13 and has a great matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Although, he should be started no matter whom he's playing. He's easily in WR1 territory.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans doesn't practice

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 14:52:57 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It was likely just a day off for the star receiver, but his status should still be monitored over the coming days. He's already proven to be matchup-proof, but he does have a decent matchup with the San Diego Chargers. San Diego is in the top 10 in yards allowed to wide receivers this year. Start Evans as a WR1 per usual, assuming he takes the field.

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 05:40:37 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught eight balls for 104 yards and two touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: He did a lot of that on Richard Sherman and has really vaulted himself into the WR1 spotlight with a 73-1,020-10 season thus far. He has a good matchup next week against the San Diego Chargers.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in six receptions for 105 yards on 13 targets in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Evans continues to be a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy leagues, but he could struggle in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks and their lockdown pass defense.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans coming of age

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 09:30:56 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has averaged the second-most points at the position in PPR leagues the last five weeks with 21.8 points per game.

Fantasy Tip: Evans was slowed last week in a good matchup against the Chicago Bears. However, he has a 27-362-4 line during the stretch. The Kansas City Chiefs aren't the daunting matchup they have been in recent years, and Evans remains in the WR1 conversation.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 11:58:02 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was held without a reception in the first half of Week 10 play against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: A week after going off for fantasy owners, Evans is on pace for a major letdown. He still has time to redeem himself, so don't panic just yet.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans pronounces himself fit

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 11:30:59 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) told reporters he didn't suffer a concussion in Week 9 even though he was put in the protocol for it and will play in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Bears have been better than expected defensively, they have allowed more PPR fantasy points per game to receivers than any other team. Evans has seen no fewer than 11 targets in any game since Week 1, essentially locking him in as an elite WR1 option.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans practices in full again

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 15:42:10 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Tip: Well, this basically ensures he'll be good to go for Week 10 after having to depart towards the end of last week's contest opposite the Falcons. As usual, Evans will be a solid WR1 option, as he's a good bet to put up some nice numbers versus a leaky Bears defense.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans cleared

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 11:34:20 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) passed all of his concussion tests and has been cleared to play in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Evans should see his normal workload against the Chicago Bears in Week 10 and will be a primary target in the passing game. He has been targeted at least 10 times per game in all but one game this season and has eight touchdowns on the season. Evans should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 16:23:54 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Evans will need to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, but it seems he is close since he fully participated in practice. Evans should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues as long as he is able to play.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans still in protocol

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 09:16:29 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is having a career year with a 55-745-8 line thus far, and he'd be a low-end WR1 against the Chicago Bears if he's cleared in time.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans in concussion protocol

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 14:02:03 -0700

Updating a previous story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) has entered the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: While a concussion never qualifies as good news, Evans is expected to return to practice Monday, suggesting this injury must have been very minor in nature. The third-year wideout leads the league in targets and receiving touchdowns, making him nearly matchup-proof. Assuming he does not suffer a setback next week, he needs to be trusted as a WR1 once again versus the Chicago Bears.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans may have concussion

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (head) left the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Nov. 3, versus the Atlanta Falcons and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Fortunately, this didn't affect his Week 9 performance, as Evans certainly did plenty of damage before enduring the potential injury, finishing the night with 11 receptions for 150 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Hopefully this won't cost him any time but more should be known in the coming days.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans held mostly in check

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 16:28:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted four catches for 50 yards in the Week 8 overtime loss against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: The performance by Evans was very disappointing for fantasy owners considering the Bucs were facing the leaky Raiders pass defense and the game went deep into overtime. They tried getting Evans the ball early and often, but the Oakland defense did a good job clamping down on him and forcing others to step up. Evans remains a WR1 heading into Thursday's game against the visiting Atlanta Falcons, another team with problems against the pass.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans has outstanding matchup

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 20:39:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. The Raiders have allowed 302.1 yards per game through the air, worst in the NFL. The Raiders have also allowed 32 pass plays of 20 or more yards, most in the NFL, and they're tied for the NFL lead with nine pass plays of 40 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Evans is in line for a giant fantasy performance, and if he doesn't hit triple digits in yardage with at least one touchdown it would be a huge disappointment.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans scores pair of TDs

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 21:56:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted eight receptions for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted 13 times, the only receiver in the game with double-digit targets.

Fantasy Tip: Evans just missed out on a 100-yard receiving bonus, and that's about the only thing fantasy owners can complain about. He has scored at least once in five of his six games this season, and has totaled six touchdowns while snagging at least five receptions in each outing. The WR1 faces another favorable matchup with the Oakland Raiders visiting in Week 8.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted six receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in the Week 5 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Evans remains a steady fantasy contributor week in and week out, showing why he was a first- or second-round fantasy selection in nearly every type of league. Fantasy owners need to make alternate plans in Week 6, as the Bucs have a bye week.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans held down by Denver

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 22:38:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five grabs for 59 yards on 11 targets in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a great game for Evans or the Tampa Bay offense, but they were facing a stout passing defense. Look for Evans to rebound to WR1 fantasy status in Week 5 on Monday night against a Carolina pass defense which was torched by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones in Week 4.
