Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy had six catches for 99 yards receiving in the team's Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Murphy entered the lineup with WR Mike Evans (groin) dealing with a groin injury in the third quarter. In the preseason, Murphy had most of his repetitions with QB Mike Glennon, who is now starting.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy has familiarity with Glennon, and now he'll see plenty of playing time with Evans out two to three weeks. Consider Murphy a deep sleeper, but he'll be cheap at FantasyScore moving forward.
Mon, 29 Sep 2014 08:50:40 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) will reportedly miss two or three weeks with a strained groin.
Fantasy Tip: Louis Murphy will likely move into the starting lineup, which makes him a fringe flex option on FantasyScore. Vincent Jackson will probably receive more attention from defenses now, which could hurt his stock slightly. TE Brandon Myers could play a larger role in the offense and is a fringe option at the position. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who had 3 catches for 44 yards in Week 4, is also a benefactor and could move into the fringe/bargain bin options at tight end.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) left the Week 4 game in the second half against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a groin injury and he was unable to return.
Sun, 28 Sep 2014 12:38:49 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 4 and will not return to the game.
Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is not known at this point. Owners will have to wait for an update on Evans to get a better idea on his timetable, but he will enter Week 5 as a risky play on FantasyScore.

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.
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 13:09:03 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was allegedly involved in a fight outside a nightclub Saturday, Aug. 16. The alleged incident was caught on video, but no arrests were made.

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.
Sat, 16 Aug 2014 15:54:32 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is starting in place of WR Chris Owusu in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Evans has some upside as a WR4.
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.
Tue, 08 Jul 2014 11:44:51 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he wants to come into training camp and develop a good relationship with QB Josh McCown and prove that he deserves to be a starter in the NFL.

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 19:06:52 -0700

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."

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.

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.
Wed, 30 Apr 2014 20:25:47 -0700
According to a poll of 17 NFL personnel men, Clemson WR Sammy Watkins received 15 votes as the top wide receiver of the 2014 NFL Draft class.
