    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 92 yards on 10 targets in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Evans has yet to post a 100-yard game through nine outings and he hasn't found the end zone in three games. He'll look to bounce back in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. You can't bench him in fantasy, as he is still somewhat productive, but he is more of a WR2 right now.

  • Posted: 11/7/2017 3:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Nov. 7. He will not play in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries stand to benefit the most with Evans out, although they will have backup Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing their way. Fitzpatrick is not Jameis Winston, but he is a veteran who has succeeded in the past. Jackson makes for a sneaky WR2 while Humphries is a serviceable WR3 or flex. Cameron Brate remains a TE1.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 1:08pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has been suspended for the Buccaneers' Week 10 contest for his involvement in an altercation Sunday, Nov. 5, versus the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers will now be without Jameis Winston and Evans next week. DeSean Jackson becomes Tampa Bay's No. 1 receiver and can still be started as a WR2 or WR3 against the New York Jets next week. Adam Humphries now demands flex consideration while Cameron Brate is a worthy TE1.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to 13 yards on just one catch in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners can't be happy about his performance, and he probably should have been ejected anyway during the game after a cheap shot on Marshon Lattimore as he was portending to protect his injured quarterback. Winston and Lattimore had words on the sidelines, and Evans popped Lattimore in the back to touch off a fracas. Evans actually ended up with more penalty yards on the day than receiving yardage.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 1:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 60 yards on 10 targets in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Evans has posted at least 60 yards in three straight outings, and six of his past seven games. This was his first game without a touchdown since Week 5, and his second-lowest yardage total of the season, however, to disappoint fantasy owners somewhat. He should bounce back in Week 9 and his first 100-yard day could be in the offing in a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints under the dome.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 6:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in a 30-27 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Evans put up a strong stat line against Buffalo's stout secondary, and he now has three touchdowns in his last four games. Expect more solid production from Evans against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 7:34pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught three of his eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time this year that Evans has been held below five catches, but it was also his most receiving yards to date thanks to multiple big plays. He remains a must-start WR1 regardless of the matchup.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 8:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches on eight targets for 49 yards in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: The matchup looked great on paper, but Evans delivered his most disappointing effort of the season. He draws a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals next time out, but Evans is still a must-start option.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 9:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Evans has 32 targets through three games and remains the go-to option for Jameis Winston. He is a high-end WR1 heading into a Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots that could turn into a shootout.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 67 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Evans was facing a tough Vikings secondary this week but was able to make seven catches for the second straight week. He remains one of the better receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 7:06am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans still has two years left on his contract, but the Buccaneers have started preliminary contract extension talks with Evans, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Evans has become one of the best receivers in the NFL, and the two sides have plenty of time to work out a long-term contract extension. He should be a starting fantasy option no matter the matchup.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 2:04pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Evans entered this season as one of the better receivers in the NFL and did not disappoint in his first game of the season. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in leagues next week even though he is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings secondary.

  • Posted: 8/24/2017 6:55am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 24, for the second straight day.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Dirk Koetter said the issue is nothing serious, but it's worth watching after Evans vaulted himself to WR1 status last season.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 8:31pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught five passes for 57 yards in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Evans finished in the top six in receptions (96), receiving yards (1,321) and touchdowns (12) in 2016 and will continue to be one of the top receivers in the NFL. He will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues and likely will be a first- or second-round pick in drafts.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 8:07pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes on seven targets for 58 yards in a 23-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Friday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Evans led the NFL in targets last season, and despite some offseason additions to the passing attack, he was still the clear No. 1 option for Jameis Winston in this one. Evans is a midrange WR1 in any format.

  • Posted: 7/6/2017 9:40am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans isn't expected to make a big jump in numbers with the addition of WR DeSean Jackson. 'I'm not sure (how much better he can get) from a numbers standpoint, but Mike's confidence is at an all-time high right now,'' head coach Dirk Koetter said. 'And I think with Mike, like with a lot of our guys, the main goal is to win, not create stats. The goal is to win games.''

    Huddle Up: Evans solidified himself as a WR1 last season with a 96-1,321-12 line. There isn't much room for improvement there, and if the team is cautioning expectations, it's a good idea to do so from a fantasy expectation. Evans is still in the WR1 window and can be considered after the first few are off the board.

  • Posted: 4/17/2017 9:09am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, April 17.

    Huddle Up: Evans had a monster 96-1,321-12 season last year, but he had very little help. He might not receive 175 targets again with DeSean Jackson in town. However, that addition should free up Evans more, and he's in the low-end WR1 mix in fantasy.

  • Posted: 1/29/2017 10:06am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is entering this final season of the four-year rookie contract he signed in 2014 - the team has a club option for 2018 as well - and is due to make only $690,000 (plus a $1.7 million roster bonus in 2017). Despite the low pay relative to his position, Evans has yet to express any concern about being compensated on the level of some of the game's elite receivers. 'I?m not worried about that stuff. It?ll come, but I?m mainly focused on getting better and helping this team win,? Evans said of a possible contract extension in 2017.

    Huddle Up: The expectation is the Bucs will approach Evans about an extension this summer on par with the five-year, $71.25 million contract Julio Jones signed in 2015. The club option makes doing a deal less urgent, but Tampa Bay would be wise to lock up one of the game's best receivers long-term as quickly as possible. After posting 96 catches for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2016, Evans will be a first-round lock in fantasy drafts this spring and summer.

  • Posted: 1/27/2017 4:23pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught 51 passes for 668 yards and six touchdowns at home this season. He caught 45 passes for 653 yards and six touchdowns on the road.

    Huddle Up: Evans was one of the most consistent option for fantasy owners this season and led the league in targets. He will continue to be the main target in the team's passing game and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season.

  • Posted: 1/6/2017 8:32pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans led the NFL with 175 targets during the 2016 season.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 7:51pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 12:18am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 9:11am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/20/2016 2:16pm ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/20/2016 11:15am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 20. He did do some work on the side, however.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/2/2016 1:02pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 1:37pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/30/2016 2:52pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 5:40am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught eight balls for 104 yards and two touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: He did a lot of that on Richard Sherman and has really vaulted himself into the WR1 spotlight with a 73-1,020-10 season thus far. He has a good matchup next week against the San Diego Chargers.
