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.

Buccaneers | Another full practice for Mike Evans

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:02:32 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (not injury related) got in another full practice Friday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Evans rested on Wednesday but has been a regular back at practice since then. As a result, there's no reason to be concerned with him providing his usual stellar production in Sunday's desirable matchup with the Chargers. As always, he'll enter that contest as a respectable WR1.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans rests Wednesday

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:37:44 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Evans and his wife recently had a baby, so that could be the reason for his absence. He's good to go for Week 13 and has a great matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Although, he should be started no matter whom he's playing. He's easily in WR1 territory.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans doesn't practice

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 14:52:57 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It was likely just a day off for the star receiver, but his status should still be monitored over the coming days. He's already proven to be matchup-proof, but he does have a decent matchup with the San Diego Chargers. San Diego is in the top 10 in yards allowed to wide receivers this year. Start Evans as a WR1 per usual, assuming he takes the field.
