    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.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 7:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in six receptions for 105 yards on 13 targets in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Evans continues to be a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy leagues, but he could struggle in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks and their lockdown pass defense.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 9:30am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has averaged the second-most points at the position in PPR leagues the last five weeks with 21.8 points per game.

    Huddle Up: Evans was slowed last week in a good matchup against the Chicago Bears. However, he has a 27-362-4 line during the stretch. The Kansas City Chiefs aren't the daunting matchup they have been in recent years, and Evans remains in the WR1 conversation.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 11:30am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) told reporters he didn't suffer a concussion in Week 9 even though he was put in the protocol for it and will play in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Although the Bears have been better than expected defensively, they have allowed more PPR fantasy points per game to receivers than any other team. Evans has seen no fewer than 11 targets in any game since Week 1, essentially locking him in as an elite WR1 option.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 3:42pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Tip: Well, this basically ensures he'll be good to go for Week 10 after having to depart towards the end of last week's contest opposite the Falcons. As usual, Evans will be a solid WR1 option, as he's a good bet to put up some nice numbers versus a leaky Bears defense.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 11:34am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) passed all of his concussion tests and has been cleared to play in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Evans should see his normal workload against the Chicago Bears in Week 10 and will be a primary target in the passing game. He has been targeted at least 10 times per game in all but one game this season and has eight touchdowns on the season. Evans should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 4:23pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Evans will need to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, but it seems he is close since he fully participated in practice. Evans should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues as long as he is able to play.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 9:16am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Evans is having a career year with a 55-745-8 line thus far, and he'd be a low-end WR1 against the Chicago Bears if he's cleared in time.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 2:02pm ET

    Updating a previous story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (concussion) has entered the league's concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: While a concussion never qualifies as good news, Evans is expected to return to practice Monday, suggesting this injury must have been very minor in nature. The third-year wideout leads the league in targets and receiving touchdowns, making him nearly matchup-proof. Assuming he does not suffer a setback next week, he needs to be trusted as a WR1 once again versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 8:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (head) left the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Nov. 3, versus the Atlanta Falcons and is being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately, this didn't affect his Week 9 performance, as Evans certainly did plenty of damage before enduring the potential injury, finishing the night with 11 receptions for 150 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Hopefully this won't cost him any time but more should be known in the coming days.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 4:28pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted four catches for 50 yards in the Week 8 overtime loss against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted 11 times.

    Huddle Up: The performance by Evans was very disappointing for fantasy owners considering the Bucs were facing the leaky Raiders pass defense and the game went deep into overtime. They tried getting Evans the ball early and often, but the Oakland defense did a good job clamping down on him and forcing others to step up. Evans remains a WR1 heading into Thursday's game against the visiting Atlanta Falcons, another team with problems against the pass.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 8:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. The Raiders have allowed 302.1 yards per game through the air, worst in the NFL. The Raiders have also allowed 32 pass plays of 20 or more yards, most in the NFL, and they're tied for the NFL lead with nine pass plays of 40 or more yards.

    Huddle Up: Evans is in line for a giant fantasy performance, and if he doesn't hit triple digits in yardage with at least one touchdown it would be a huge disappointment.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 9:56pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted eight receptions for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted 13 times, the only receiver in the game with double-digit targets.

    Huddle Up: Evans just missed out on a 100-yard receiving bonus, and that's about the only thing fantasy owners can complain about. He has scored at least once in five of his six games this season, and has totaled six touchdowns while snagging at least five receptions in each outing. The WR1 faces another favorable matchup with the Oakland Raiders visiting in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/10/2016 9:41pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted six receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in the Week 5 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Evans remains a steady fantasy contributor week in and week out, showing why he was a first- or second-round fantasy selection in nearly every type of league. Fantasy owners need to make alternate plans in Week 6, as the Bucs have a bye week.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 10:38pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five grabs for 59 yards on 11 targets in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great game for Evans or the Tampa Bay offense, but they were facing a stout passing defense. Look for Evans to rebound to WR1 fantasy status in Week 5 on Monday night against a Carolina pass defense which was torched by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 9:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with 10 receptions for a game-high 132 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams. He was also targeted 13 times.

    Huddle Up: Evans was drafted as a WR1 and he has looked the part in every game so far this season. He and Jameis Winston have the potential to be one of the most potent pass-catch combos in the NFC.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 6:48pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted six receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, and he was targeted 17 times.

    Huddle Up: Evans is showing why he was a high-round pick in all fantasy leagues, especially PPR formats. He is a catch machine and Jameis Winston targets him early and often. He might find the room a little harder to come by in Week 3 against the visiting Los Angeles Rams and their suffocating defense.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 8:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted nine receptions for 99 yards and a 45-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted a team-high seven times.

    Huddle Up: Evans was a high-round fantasy selection, especially in PPR formats, and he showed why. As long as he can maintain his focus all season long and avoid the drops, he is a high-end WR1 in all formats.

  • Posted: 9/9/2016 7:22am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans lost 15 pounds to around 220-225 pounds, which he played at in college. Evans has also worked on the mental aspect, which includes letting go of his mistakes.

    Huddle Up: Evans has been dogged by hamstring injuries in his young career, and this could be a big season for him in an up-and-coming offense. He's a solid WR2 against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 8:09pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught five passes for 115 yards and a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns Friday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Evans is a borderline WR1, and he shouldn't slip out of the second round, especially in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 8/20/2016 8:59pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in two receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in a cameo in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Evans certainly looked the part of a WR1, and he has been flying off the board at the tail end of Round 1 or early part of Round 2 in PPR fantasy formats.
