Josh McCown reaching new heights with addition of Mike Evans
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Josh McCown will benefit having big weapons like Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans , reports ESPN. Both receivers stand at least 6-foot-4.

Smith said McCown had the advantage of throwing to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery last season with the Bears, and he likes that formula for the passing game.

"We want to score points in any way we can,"’ Smith said. "This is a combination that looked pretty attractive to us. Of course, having a player like Josh McCown here – Josh, of course, has been in that situation and to say Josh has been in our ear quite a bit is an understatement. Seeing that [combination in Chicago] work like that was attractive to us, but as much as anything, we saw a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball that we had a chance to get that we really felt like could help us."

Bucs make smart pick with Mike Evans
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Josh McCown had great success in 2013 with the Bears when he stepped in for the injured Jay Cutler in part because of his receiving corps with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He doesn't have that same talent with the Buccaneers, but he might not be far off following the NFL Draft. The Bucs drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans at No. 7 overall, and he will join Vincent Jackson as the starters in Tampa Bay.

Now, this doesn't elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.

The Bucs are going to be run-first with Doug Martin, but now they have a legitimate receiving corps, including quality tight ends in Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers.

In dynasty leagues, plan on drafting Evans with a first-round pick, and he will likely be selected in Round 8 or later in re-draft formats.

Mike Evans boards the Buccaneers' ship
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the seventh pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Buccaneers drafted Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans . The Galveston, Texas, native has drawn comparisons to Vincent Jackson with his huge 6-foot-5, 231-pound frame and ability to make awesome down-field jump-ball catches. On the other end of throws from Johnny Manziel for the past two seasons, Evans tallied 147 catches for 2,427 yards and 17 touchdowns over 25 games. Now Evans will catch passes alongside Jackson, creating a dangerous combination for the defensive backs they'll play against.

Josh McCown 'impressed' with Vincent Jackson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown started throwing with his No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson on Friday. McCown said he came away impressed.

McCown said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's worked with some top-notch receivers in his career -- Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery -- and Jackson is "right there with those guys."

"I'm very, very impressed with him," McCown said. "You know when you have one of those special guys. You can tell the first time you work with him, you see it and feel it. That was the case throwing with Vincent. You can see why he's been so good for so long because of his work ethic and his attention to detail."
