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.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans approves of Jameis Winston

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:36:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has received the approval of WR Mike Evans. "He can sit in the pocket, deliver the ball and that's more opportunities for the receivers," Evans said, emphasizing his desire for a pocket passer.

Fantasy Tip: Winston's ability to be composed and pass from the pocket will benefit both Evans and Vincent Jackson, who can both spread the field and score on any play downfield. Assuming Winston starts, it could take some time for him to acclimate to the professional level, but Jackson and Evans should still be in the WR2 neighborhood with WR1 potential. Winston, meanwhile, is a backup fantasy quarterback for his rookie season, even with his valuable weapons.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans wants to improve

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:19:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans wants to improve his route running and his understanding of coverages for the 2015 season. Evans added that he has two other goals of making the playoffs and making the Pro Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Evans kind of makes it sound like he had an off season in his rookie campaign, but 68 catches for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns isn't a lot to improve on. Evans is in WR2 territory with WR1 upside if he can develop good chemistry with QB Jameis Winston.

Buccaneers | Yards tough to find for Mike Evans

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 20:44:29 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has had less than 50 receiving yards in each of his last five games, but he has been targeted 46 times over the same stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has remained a serviceable fantasy option by hauling in four scores over the same five games, but since his 209-yard outburst in Week 11, opposing defenses may be paying a little more attention to the rookie.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans more comfortable

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 08:42:40 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is playing faster and appears to be more comfortable playing in the NFL, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "Just like anything else, it's just brand new and he's really taking a step, it seems, every week and we're excited about that because obviously he's a difference-maker and we'll continue to push him and help him and try and guide him in a way that can really propel him into where he wants to be," Smith said.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has posted solid numbers over the last four games and has caught at least one touchdown pass in three of those games. Evans costs $5,200 on FantasyScore and could be a good No. 3 wide receiver or flex option against the Atlanta Falcons this week.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans playing faster

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 07:30:11 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is playing faster and the offense is clicking more, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "I think that's evident and I think he's putting some fear in some guys," Smith said. "He's playing faster, things are clicking a little bit more."

Fantasy Tip: Evans ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) is emerging as the top option in the passing game and busted out with a 7-124-2 line last week. Evans is a great WR3 option on FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans finding rhythm

Sat, 01 Nov 2014 20:04:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said he is becoming more physical in his blocking in the run game and believes it will help open up opportunities in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has been steady in his rookie year, and he has caught four passes in five straight games and has topped 50 yards in four straight games. More importantly, he has touchdowns in two of his past three games. He will take up 10.2% of the cap ($5,200) at FantasyScore in Week 9, and he has decent upside as a sleeper against a Cleveland defense ranked 20th in passing yards allowed.
