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.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans out for preseason

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:20:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is not expected to play the rest of the preseason with the hamstring injury he suffered Monday, Aug. 24, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Evans needs as much rest as he can get for the injury with the regular season nearing. He's an invaluable part of their offense, so it's not worth risking an aggravation. It remains to be seen how involved he'll be in practices the next few weeks. His status will need to be monitored, but he's still in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans' injury not likely serious

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 05:52:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) isn't believed to have a serious hamstring injury. "I talked to him and he didn't feel like it was that serious," head coach Lovie Smith said. "We wanted to get our (starters) into the second quarter and then get them out."

Fantasy Tip: Evans has solid WR2 value in fantasy, and this is something to watch through the last half of training camp.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans leaves game early

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:10:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) left the preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Aug. 24, due to a strained hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: The team has another game in five nights, so it could be just a precaution. Obviously if this an injury of a more serious nature we'll keep you updated. And, Vincent Jackson would see a spike in pre-draft value in FantasyScore and standard leagues heading into the regular season.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans feels he was held back

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 19:00:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is expected to play more on an island in 2015 as the "X" receiver in Tampa Bay's new offense, which is the same role offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter created for Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones during Koetter's time with that organization. He said Monday, June 29, that the QB carousell of Josh McCown and Mike Glennon last year held him back, too, so he is excited about a potential breakout with QB Jameis Winston.

Fantasy Tip: Evans posted huge numbers last season, finishing with over 1,000 yards while scoring 12 touchdowns. If he can improve on those numbers he will be a Top 5 fantasy option at his position. Look for him to fly off the board rather early on draft day.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans works out with Randy Moss

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:51:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he worked out with former NFL WR Randy Moss for a week this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Evans had a terrific rookie season with 1,051 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games. Evans should be one of the team's top targets this season and likely will be selected in one of the earlier rounds of fantasy drafts.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans being used as 'X' WR

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 17:49:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he's being used exclusively as an 'X' wide receiver. Evans was used as the 'Z' receiver as a rookie, but he said he likes the move and "being on an island."

Fantasy Tip: Evans demonstrated the size and skill necessary to win just about any one-on-one battle in his rookie season. Evans should be selected as a WR3 heading into his sophomore season, and he has WR2 upside.

Buccaneers | Players comfortable with TB offense

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 13:53:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston and WRs Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are becoming acclimated to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's offense. The three players said they've become more comfortable with the offense and now need to learn more of the terminology that comes with it.

Fantasy Tip: Evans and Jackson may take some time to get used to Koetter's offense and a new rookie quarterback, but from a season-long perspective Evans and Jackson should be drafted as a WR1 and WR2, respectively. Winston should be drafted as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Buccaneers | Mike Davis back at practice

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 18:47:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, June 2, at organized team activities (OTAs) after a "tweak" to his hamstring during drills Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Davis does not sound like he suffered a major injury, and he should be fine going forward. He’ll be a Top 10 fantasy option at his position, and early-round selection, come draft day.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans hurts hamstring

Thu, 28 May 2015 13:45:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring during organized team activities Thursday, May 28. Head coach Lovie Smith said Evans' injury isn't major.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Evans will be fine, especially since Smith added that Evans tweaked his hamstring last year. He ended up catching 68 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns. Plus, Evans still has plenty of time to recover, not that a tweak takes a lot of time to recover from. He should be drafted as a high-end WR2 to low-end WR1.
