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.
