In the five games since Antonio Brown joined the Tampa Bay Bucs, they've had four different leading receivers. The only pass catcher to lead them in receiving twice? Mike Evans. Figuring out the Bucs passing attack and their offense in general this season has been quite the task. I'm here to tell you that it's OK to trust Evans as a WR2 this week. First of all, that game has a plus environment inside of a dome with a 49.5 total. While the targets have been spread around, Evans leads the team with a 22% target share since Brown joined them back in Week 9. During that span Evans also leads Tampa Bay with 11 red zone targets as well, the second most in the NFL.

As for the matchup, the Falcons have admittedly played better defense since Raheem Morris took over. Even with that, they're allowing the most Fantasy points to wide receivers this season. They've given up 100 yards or a touchdown to four different wide receivers over their last two games. On top of that, Evans has really enjoyed playing the Falcons in his career. Evans has eight touchdowns in 11 career games against the Falcons, his most against any team. We've heard a lot of talk about T.Y. Hilton this week and how he's always dominated the Houston Texans. It's time to throw some love Evans' way as well. I currently have Evans as my WR17 this week, just ahead of Robby Anderson, Amari Cooper, and Corey Davis. As for his teammate Chris Godwin, I view him as more of a high-end WR3 in Week 15.

Below you'll find the rest of my thoughts on each game this week, with injuries, stats and more on every Fantasy relevant player. Good luck in your playoff matchups!

Tom Brady is currently the QB10 in FPPG... On the season Brady has 33 total TDs (three rushing) with 11 INTs, completing 64.8% of his passes at 7.0 yards per attempt...

It sounds like Ronald Jones is going to miss this week because of contract tracing...

Week 14 usage: Evans led the team in receiving with 3-56-0 on five targets, Brown 5-49-0 on five targets, Godwin 2-25-0 on three targets, Scotty Miller 1-48-1 on two targets...
