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.

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.
