Buccaneers | Mike Evans makes presence felt

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 20:59:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in two receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in a cameo in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Evans certainly looked the part of a WR1, and he has been flying off the board at the tail end of Round 1 or early part of Round 2 in PPR fantasy formats.

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.

Buccaneers | Big night for Mike Evans

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 21:04:48 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with nine catches for 157 yards in a 31-23 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) bounced back after a quiet Week 14, earning 17 targets and reaching the 150-yard mark for the third time this season. There have been some growing pains with rookie Jameis Winston under center, but Evans still has a ton of upside at FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans quiet in loss

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:30:21 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had three catches on four targets for 39 yards in a 24-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Evans was surprisingly quiet, especially with Vincent Jackson going down early with an injury. That being said, Evans should see plenty of looks going forward if Jackson misses more time.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans catches game-winning TD

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 21:22:12 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 61 yards and the game-winning touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has posted yardage totals under 100 in a season-high three straight games, but he has two touchdowns over the past three outings, accounting for all but one of his scores this season. He remains a solid low-end WR1 in most fantasy formats.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson could be busy

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 20:25:51 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson will likely be covered by Indianapolis Colts CB Greg Toler in Week 12 while WR Mike Evans will be covered by CB Vontae Davis, and when Evans was covered by Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman in Week 4, Jackson finished with 10 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has taken a backseat to Evans ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) this year, but with Evans drawing a tough matchup in Week 12, Jackson should be the main beneficiary.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans could continue hot streak

Sat, 21 Nov 2015 18:05:30 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans faces the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11, and the Eagles have allowed the third-most receptions and seventh-most yards to wide receivers this season.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,700, 13.6% of cap) has had issues with drops, but he has had at least 126 receiving yards in three of his last four games. Start him with confidence at FantasyScore against a vulnerable Philadelphia secondary.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans surpasses 100-yard mark

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 14:46:37 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught eight passes for 126 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has posted back-to-back 100-yard performances and probably will be the team's No. 1 receiver moving forward. He should be a solid starting option against most opponents.

Panthers | Ted Ginn leads league in drops

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 11:28:51 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. leads all receivers with a 25% drop rate this year. Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is second with a 17.9% drop rate, followed by Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (16.1%), Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (13.5%), New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (12.3%) and Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (9.8%).

Fantasy Tip: Ginn leads a list that includes some pretty heavy hitters in the wide receiver ranks. Ginn's knack for the big play is typically what carries his fantasy value, so he's hard to rely on in point-per-reception leagues like FantasyScore on a consistent basis.

Buccaneers | Drops mar Mike Evans' big game

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 19:54:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had eight catches for 152 yards in a 32-18 loss to the New York Giants in Week 9, but he also lost a fumble and dropped five passes.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,900, 12.8% of cap) may have topped 200 yards had he been able to hold on to the ball, and while he has a high ceiling, he has been an all-or-nothing option at FantasyScore this season.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans banged up

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 07:41:33 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin, oblique) admitted that he tweaked his groin and oblique trying to catch a pass in the Week 8 game. "My groin, if I wouldn't have dropped the pass I wouldn't have hurt my groin," Evans said. "Yeah, I dropped the pass and I turned before I secured the ball. And then the guy pushed me, and I tried to stop myself and it like tweaked up a little bit on me." "It felt kind of like my ribs were broken," Evans said, but the sharp pain steadily subsided.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has a good matchup against the New York Giants on FantasyScore, but this is a concerning revelation for a player that has been banged up all year. Stay tuned for the Friday practice report.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson could miss multiple weeks

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 15:05:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) could miss multiple weeks after suffering a knee injury in Week 7. He is not expected to play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source informed of Jackson's progress. WR Mike Evans should now expect to see a lot of double coverage for however long Jackson is out.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons will give Evans ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) plenty of attention this weekend, which will make him a bust candidate after he broke out last week. Donteea Dye could be the biggest beneficiary of targets from Jameis Winston with Jackson dinged, and he's worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans breaks out again

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 13:55:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had his fifth 100-yard receiving game of his career, as he caught eight passes for 164 yards and one touchdown in a 31-30 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) seems to have a good rapport with Winston, so as long as Winston stays healthy and effective it should be a good union. Evans is a decent play on FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston, Mike Evans not connecting

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 14:35:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is 13-for-33 with no touchdowns and three interceptions when targeting WR Mike Evans this year.

Fantasy Tip: Winston ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has plenty of upside but is way too tough to rely on in daily games because of his turnover problems, and Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) also becomes a weak play because of inconsistency at the quarterback position.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans rather quiet in win

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 18:08:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had just three receptions for 41 yards in the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has failed to post consistent numbers this season, and he hasn't really jelled as nicely with rookie Jameis Winston as nicely as FantasyScore players might like. At this point he is too expensive for the minimal returns.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans struggles in Week 4

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 17:11:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had three catches for 32 yards in a 37-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) followed up a 100-yard performance in Week 3 with a quiet afternoon, and with Jameis Winston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) struggling, Evans will likely remain a boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans has busy afternoon

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 18:50:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had seven catches on 17 targets for 101 yards in a 19-9 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: After being a non-factor in his season debut in Week 2, Jameis Winston ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) looked Evans' ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) way early and often Sunday. The two should continue to develop better chemistry as the year goes on, and he should make a solid WR2 at FantasyScore most weeks.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans probable Sunday

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 14:06:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 25, and is probable for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) has been limited with injuries to start the year and had zero catches on three targets last week. He could easily bounce back this weekend against Houston if he's 100%, but if you're playing it safe it might be best to avoid him on FantasyScore until he proves he's fully healthy.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans takes part in practice

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 14:50:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) was held without a catch in Week 2 but should be healthier for the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans. Owners could consider him as a starting option because he should see more targets.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans has full practice

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 16:09:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) was active last week, but he did not even see a single target. That should change this week. As is the case with any player who is coming off or being hampered by an injury, there is some risky with rostering Evans. It might be best to take a wait-and-see approach with him this week.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans limited in Week 2

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 07:13:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) played 40 of 65 snaps (62% of the offense) Sunday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) wasn't even targeted in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. He's a risky FantasyScore selection with a rookie quarterback he still needs a rapport with against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans fails to catch pass

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 18:07:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had zero catches on three targets in a 26-19 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Whether it was lingering issues with the hamstring injury that held him out of Week 1 or simply lack of chemistry with Jameis Winston ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) was a non-factor Sunday. Better days are ahead, but you may want to avoid him at FantasyScore until he and Winston seem to be on the same page.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans will be in uniform

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:15:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will be able to play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 even though he was listed as questionable for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) missed the opening game of the season because of the injury but will be ready to play against the Saints. Evans will come with some risk because hamstring injuries can linger, but he should see a solid amount of work in the passing game and could be a starting option in most leagues.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans listed as questionable

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 15:18:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is expected to be a game-time call against the Saints Sunday morning, and it's believed that he will play. Make sure he's in there, but if he is, he's not a bad pick on FantasyScore against a depleted New Orleans secondary.

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 11:24:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Week 2.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans limited Thursday

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 13:36:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 17. Evans said he feels 100% despite his limited status.

Fantasy Tip: Evans' ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) fate is still in the hands of head coach Lovie Smith. If he plays, he could still see less playing time than he normally would if he were fully healthy. The matchup is favorable, so stay tuned to his status leading up to the game this weekend.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) said he feels 100% Thursday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) isn't a lock to play because Lovie Smith is traditionally cautious with hamstring injuries. Evans is a shaky WR2 against the New Orleans Saints on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) was not able to play in Week 1 but is off to a good start this week. Evans could be limited if he does play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 but may still be a starting option because of the matchup.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans will not play

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 11:27:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will be inactive for the team's Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) appeared to be close but will sit out this week and could return in the next game or two, so owners should minor the situation. Vincent Jackson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely will be the main targets in the passing game and could be solid option on FantasyScore.

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 09:53:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is considered doubtful to play against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1, and will have to convince the team he can play if he wants to be active.

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) was able to do some things at practice this week but likely will sit the game out because of the injury, so owners should avoid him. Louis Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will start at wide receiver but is not a great option for fantasy owners.

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 08:49:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is not expected to see much playing time against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 if he is active.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list before the game to see if Evans ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) will dress for the game. Evans probably will not be a great option since likely will be limited if he does play. Louis Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would see more playing time if Evans is out and could be a cheaper option for desperate owners on FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans questionable against TEN

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 12:01:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) "looked good" during a walkthrough practice Friday, Sept. 11, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Evans missed the team's final two preseason games but could play in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. Evans is listed as questionable for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Everything is pointing to Evans ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) being a game-time decision Sunday against the Titans. That means he's extremely risky on FantasyScore. Even if Evans does play, Vincent Jackson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) may be better value picks.

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is improving, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said Evans could play Sunday if he feels good.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to wait until Sunday morning, if you can, before deciding whether or not to start Evans. If Evans is unable to go, Vincent Jackson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) would be a great option to start on FantasyScore as he will be Jameis Winston's main and only receiving threat.

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 11:13:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) did not practice Monday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has been dealing with a hamstring injury for a few weeks now. It's mildly concerning that he isn't practicing the Monday before the season kicks off, but if he practices this week at all he should be able to play Week 1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans fine with not playing

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 09:29:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) said he thinks it's smart not to play the last two preseason games with a hampered hamstring. "There's no reason to risk it," Evans said. "I've already proven myself. And this way I can just try to get back for Week 1 of the regular season." Evans added that if he had to play, he could.

Fantasy Tip: This should be an obvious move for the Buccaneers -- resting their start receiver until the games count. As Evans said, there's no reason to risk aggravating the injury. As long as he's healthy, Evans should be in contention for a WR1 position in fantasy football this year.
