Evans received the lion's share of snaps once again, and was one of five Bucs to catch touchdown passes from rookie quarterback Jameis Winston on a record-setting afternoon. The second-year standout should continue receiving abundant playing time and targets for the remaining six weeks of the season, although his looks figure to see a slight dip now that Vincent Jackson has returned to the field.
Mike Evans secured four of his seven targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 45-17 victory over the Eagles.
With the return of fellow starting wideout Vincent Jackson, Evans saw his least amount of targets since Week 5 versus Jacksonville, but still put together a solid performance. The highlight of the second-year standout's day was a leaping four-yard touchdown in the left corner of the end zone to open the scoring for Tampa. Even though Jackson's presence may generally equate to a drop in targets for Evans, he should still be the beneficiary of plenty of looks from Jameis Winston the remainder of the season, especially considering his game-breaking ability. Next up for Evans is an intriguing matchup versus Vontae Davis and the otherwise beatable Colts secondary in Week 12.
Mike Evans was the beneficiary of 63 snaps in the Week 10 victory over the Cowboys,Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The second-year standout receiver saw his highest playing time volume since Week 4, and turned in a stat-sheet-stuffing eight-catch, 126-yard day. Based on his talent and production, Evans would normally see the majority of the offensive snaps anyhow, but is particularly counted on in the aftermath of knee injuries to Vincent Jackson and Louis Murphy. Evans figures to be in for another target-heavy day in Week 11 versus the Eagles.
Mike Evans secured eight of 13 targets for 126 yards in Sunday's 10-6 victory over the Cowboys.
Evans put together a second consecutive mammoth performance in the absence of fellow starter Vincent Jackson. In addition to considerably curtailing the drops that infamously plagued him in Week 9, Evans also drew a pivotal defensive holding call at the goal line late in the fourth quarter that erased what would have been a back-breaking fumble by Jameis Winston as he dove into the end zone. The 100-yard outing was Evans' third in the last four weeks, all games in which he's received double-digit targets. Evans will once again be looked at to speahead the Bucs aerial attack in what could be a fast-paced offensive game versus the Eagles.
Mike Evans was in on 57 offensive snaps in the Week 9 loss to the Giants, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Evans had the unique distinction of amassing a considerably impressive stat line (eight receptions for 152 yards), while also leaving a great deal of opportunity on the field due to five dropped passes. The struggles negated many of the positives that Evans was able to produce with his robust playing time, including a spectacular 68-yard catch-and-run. Evans will take aim at the Cowboys' beatable secondary in Week 10 in a game that should see him play a generous amount of snaps, irrespective of whether Vincent Jackson (knee) or Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) return to the field.
