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.
