Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ronald Jones II
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans hauled in seven of 10 targets for 99 yards in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He was second on the team in targets and receiving yards behind only Chris Godwin. The 28-year-old was one yard shy of recording his third 100-yard receiving game. Evans has been terrific this season, catching 57 catches for 794 yards and 10 touchdowns over 12 games in 2021. The Buccaneers star wideout will look to build on Sunday's performance and is a surefire WR1 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans faces the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13, a team he shredded for five catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns in his previous game against them. This season, the 28-year-old has been terrific, catching 50 of 83 targets for 695 yards and 10 touchdowns over 11 games in 2021. He owns 18% of the team's target percentage and averages 13 air yards per target, 25th among all wideouts. In 2021, the Falcons allow the 12th most fantasy points to wide receivers and are 25th in DVOA against opposing WR1s. Evans is a strong option and a must-start against a woeful Falcons defense in Week 13.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers Mike Evans (back) and Chris Godwin (foot) were both taken off the final injury report for Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts. Evans' status for Sunday's game was in question after he missed practice on both Wednesday and Thursday, but he returned to a full practice on Friday and is good to go against the Colts. Antonio Brown (ankle) remains out of action, so Evans and Godwin should continue to be targeted heavily in Tampa's pass-happy offense. Through 11 weeks of the 2021 season, Evans is the WR6 in fantasy with 679 receiving yards and a league-high 10 touchdowns, while Godwin is the WR10 with 782 receiving yards and five scores. They will both be must-starts this weekend.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers Mike Evans (back) and Antonio Brown (ankle) were not practicing in the portion open to the media on Thursday. The Bucs are expecting Brown to miss another game this weekend, but he has a chance to return in Week 13 against the Atlanta Falcons. Evans, meanwhile, is looking questionable for this Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. The team's No. 1 receiver will need to get on the practice field on Friday to ease any concerns fantasy managers may have about him playing this weekend. When active, Evans remains one of Tom Brady's favorite weapons, and he's been a strong WR1 all season with 47 catches on 77 targets for 679 yards and a league-leading 10 touchdowns. If he cannot play, Chris Godwin and tight end Rob Gronkowski would see an uptick in targets, while Tyler Johnson would likely serve as the No. 2 receiver.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (back) was held out of the team's walkthrough practice on Wednesday with back issues. The Bucs held a light practice coming off their Monday night game, so Evans' absence shouldn't sound the alarm bells for fantasy managers just yet. The 28-year-old looked to tweak something late in the Monday night game, but he returned to action to finish with six catches on 11 targets for 73 yards and his league-leading 10th touchdown of the season. Evans has scored in four straight games and has six touchdowns in that span. As long as he's able to play in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts, he'll be a must-start in fantasy as one of Tom Brady's favorite targets, especially in the red zone.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans caught two passes for 62 yards with one touchdown in the team's Week 10 loss to the Washington Football Team. Evans was targeted five times in the game but was bottled up throughout until quarterback Tom Brady found him streaking down the sideline for a 40-yard touchdown in the second half. Evans now has only 10 receptions over his last three games but has five touchdowns during that span. Evans has been boom-or-bust this season and will need a touchdown to 'boom' in Week 11 against the Giants on Monday Night Football.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans could be even more involved in Week 10 against Washington. Evans is trending towards being the undisputed top dog in the Buccaneers' wideout room, as Antonio Brown (ankle) and Chris Godwin (foot) look unlikely to play this Sunday. Evans, who has hit double-digit targets three times this year, could see that number this Sunday against Washington. Their unit has allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to wideouts and surrendered a 100-yard game to Evans in the playoffs last year. Fantasy managers can fire up the star wideout as a solid WR1 this week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans struggled against the coverage of Marshon Lattimore but managed to break free for a long touchdown in Sunday's defeat to New Orleans. Evans had just one reception for seven yards against old nemesis Lattimore but beat the star corner deep for a 41-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Evans and Brady have a knack for finding the end zone, as the two have connected on 20 touchdowns since the signal-caller came to Tampa Bay. The star receiver ranks first on the team in targets and touchdown receptions and seems well on his way to his eighth straight 1,000-yard campaign heading into the bye week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans will face off with an old rival in Marshon Lattimore when his team takes on the Saints in Week 8. Evans and Lattimore are no stranger to each other, as the star corner has routinely shadowed the star wideout when the two teams meet each year, with Evans failing to eclipse 50 yards in four of the last nine meetings. Still, Evans, who just had a monster, three-touchdown game against the Bears, is talented enough to beat Lattimore in coverage. Plus, he could see added targets with Antonio Brown (ankle) sidelined. Evans could have a lower floor than usual this week but should still be in lineups as a WR2.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans recorded six receptions for 76 yards and three touchdowns on 10 targets in Sunday's win over the Bears. Evans went off in the touchdown department, posting his highest total of the season for one game. The WR also has at least 75 yards in five of seven contests. The 28-year-old is one of the most reliable pass-catchers in fantasy and doesn't have too many bad days on the field. With a huge role on this offense, Evans is a solid WR1 going forward.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a low-end WR1 option against Chicago. After four straight contests with at least five receptions, eight targets, and 75 yards, Evans fell back down to earth in Week 6 with two receptions for 27 yards on four targets. Nevertheless, while last week was a slow week for the talented WR, it's not usually frequent that this happens. The 28-year-old is a top receiving option for Tom Brady and should see a stable number of targets each week. In Week 7, both Antonio Brown (ankle) and Rob Gronkowski (ribs) will be out, so Evans could see more looks. Lock him in as a WR1 against a Bears team that is average against fantasy wideouts.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans posted two catches for 27 yards in a 28-22 win over the Eagles Thursday. Evans drew a tough assignment against corner Darius Slay, who held him in check for much of the contest. The big-bodied wideout has had a couple of dud games this season, but they're worth enduring for when he booms, such as when he broke out for 113 yards and two scores against Miami two weeks ago. Evans should be able to rebound in Week 7, despite the tough matchup the Bears present.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans should keep rolling against the Eagles in Week 6. Evans has been the best receiver in the Tampa Bay offense, corraling 29 of 45 targets for 393 yards and four scores, all of which lead the team. After a disappointing Week 1, he has gone on to see at least eight targets in every game, with two-75 yard efforts and two 100-yard games in that span. Evans gets a bit of a tricky matchup against an Eagles defense that has surrendered the fourth-fewest fantasy points to receivers. He likely won't approach the monster numbers he posted last week, but Evans should be in all lineups as a strong WR2 in Week 6.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans finished with six receptions for 113 yards and two scores on eight targets in Sunday's win over Miami. Evans now has at least eight targets in the last four games and at least 100 yards in two of the three past games. The WR is on a hot stretch right now after struggling in Week 1 as he has thrived in every game from Week 2 onward. Evans is firmly in the WR1 tier going ahead.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a solid starting play in Week 5. After a Week 1 dud, Evans has shown out, posting at least 75 yards in the last three games, including one 106-yard performance. He also has nine targets in the last three games. As one of Tampa's top pass-catching options, the volume and opportunities for Evans will be there each week. The Dolphins are about average against fantasy wideouts, so the 28-year-old is a great start.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans caught seven of a team-high 12 targets for 75 yards in Sunday's win over the Patriots. Evans was on the receiving end of history, as he hauled in a 28-yard reception, which made Tom Brady the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards. The big-bodied wideout then proceeded to operate as Brady's favorite target for the entirety of the contest, amassing double-digit targets for the second straight week. Evans hasn't found the end zone as much as he did early on last year but has made up for it with an increase in volume. With Brady's red zone favorite Rob Gronkowski (ribs) likely out for Week 5, look for Evans to get back in the end zone against Miami.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans gets a bit of a tough matchup against the Patriots in Week 4. Evans has bounced back since his poor Week 1 effort, as he has totaled 13 receptions on 19 targets for 181 yards and two scores over the last two weeks. New England's defense has allowed the fewest receptions and the second-fewest receiving yards to opposing wideouts this year, but they've faced soft matchups against the Dolphins, Jets, and Saints. Even in a game that could quickly tilt in the Buccaneers' favor, Evans should be able to do enough, particularly in the red zone, to produce WR2 numbers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans paced the team with eight receptions for 106 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's loss to Los Angeles. Evans posted his season-best numbers despite the tough matchup and continued to show why he is an elite weapon for Tom Brady. After struggling in Week 1, the WR now has 75 and 106 yards in the last two games to go along with nine and 10 targets. Evans will see a decent number of targets each week and should remain in the WR1 tier going ahead.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a solid WR2 this week against the Rams. After not performing well in Week 1, the talented WR came alive in Week 2 and delivered a solid line of five receptions for 75 yards and two scores on nine targets. Evans remains a top receiving option for this team and should see more targets this week with Antonio Brown unlikely to play after landing on the COVID list. The Rams are a little stiffer against fantasy WRs, but Evans' volume and talent keep him in the starting tier.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans caught five of nine targets for 75 receiving yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 48-25 win over the Falcons. Evans disappointed with just a 24-yard effort in Week 1, though he quickly put that performance in the rearview on the team's opening drive, exceeding his yardage total from the past week on his first two receptions. The big-bodied wideout later scored twice in the red zone, further adding to his lucrative day- which also saw him pace the team in targets. Evans should continue to be a touchdown magnet in what looks like yet another high-octane Buccaneers offense in 2021. A potential shootout with the Rams awaits in Week 3.
Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (leg) returned to the game on Sunday versus the Falcons. The veteran was spotting limping off the field after suffering a non-contact issue in his lower right leg. Evans was playing fantastic before he briefly left the game, racking up 75 yards and two touchdowns off five catches. Nonetheless, fantasy managers are undoubtedly glad to see him out there, so they can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (leg) limped off the field during Sunday's matchup against the Falcons. It was a non-contact injury, too, which is certainly not a good thing. It's unfortunate timing for Evans, who was having himself a fantastic contest in Week 2 before suffering the lower leg ailment, compiling four catches for 49 yards and two touchdowns. More in his status should be revealed by the team soon.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans could be in store for a bounce-back against the Falcons in Week 2. Evans saw six targets in a Week 1 shootout with Dallas, though he failed to do much of anything, turning in just three receptions for 24 yards. A matchup with an Atlanta defense that allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts last season could be just what Evans needs to get going this year. In 13 career games against the Falcons, the Pro Bowl wideout has totaled 69 catches on 108 targets for 1,062 yards and eight touchdowns. Managers should fire him up as a WR2 with upside to finish as one of the top options at the position in Week 2.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans managed only three receptions for 24 yards on six targets in Thursday's win over Dallas. In a game filled with yards and touchdowns, Evans was the odd man out in terms of putting up explosive numbers as his teammates thrived. While Week 1's performance was disappointing, Evans remains a top receiving option for Tom Brady and will see a consistent amount of targets each week. Therefore, he should remain in the WR1 conversation weekly. Up next is a matchup against the division-rival Falcons.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a low-end WR1 option for Week 1 of the 2021 season against Dallas. Evans was the top receiver for Tampa last season and posted an incredible seventh consecutive season of 1,000+ receiving yards. Entering 2021, the 28-year-old will face plenty of competition for targets but remains a top target for QB Tom Brady. The Cowboys allowed the fourth-most points to fantasy wideouts last season, so there is a real chance for Evans to post big numbers in the first game of the regular season.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?
Yes! As you can see from this Julio Jones write up from his player page, we updated his news section as soon as the news broke.
“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
