Player Outlook
Evans enters the season with the least confidence Fantasy managers have had about him since he first broke out. An uncertain quarterback position is one of the problems; going from Tom Brady and the excellent rapport they'd built to a veteran retread like Baker Mayfield or a mid-round dart throw like Kyle Trask is troubling. What's more troubling is how far Evans' production fell off in 2022. He earned just the 37th-highest target share and the 22nd-most red-zone targets in the league. And it's not like he should've gotten more targets - he was just 33rd in yards per route run. Evans feels like a name-inflated WR3 who is going off the board in Rounds 7-8.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Free agency looking likelier

    The Buccaneers are not expected to re-sign Evans by Monday's 'soft' deadline, which will force the team to take on $7.4 million in dead cap space, Jordan Schultz of BleacherReport.com reports. Evans and Tampa Bay will continue contract negotiations in the meantime, but as things stand, the passing of Monday's deadline makes it look more realistic that the 30-year-old wideout ends up on the free-agent market. The Buccaneers also have the option of placing the franchise tag on Evans, though that would cost the team a whopping $28.4 million for 2024 and rule out other tag options like Baker Mayfield and Antoine Winfield. Evans has put together 10 straight seasons with over 1,000 receiving yards and been instrumental to each iteration of Tampa Bay's offense to burgeon in that stretch, so whether he receives his next contract from the Buccaneers or a team on the open market, expect his compensation to be remunerative.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Could stay in Tampa

    Buccaneers offensive coordinator Liam Coen made it clear Tuesday that he's hopeful the team will re-sign Evans, an impending free agent, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports. Evans and quarterback Baker Mayfield have expiring contracts, and wide receiver Chris Godwin is scheduled for $20 million in non-guaranteed compensation for the final year of his deal in 2024. The possibility of significant change can't be ignored, but Coen's opening press conference left little doubt that part of his motivation for taking the Tampa Bay job was an expectation that the team's core playmakers would be retained. The former Rams and University of Kentucky offensive coordinator talked about how much easier it is to design an offense with a downfield, perimeter threat like Evans, and Coen also mentioned that he plans to move Godwin back to the slot as his primary alignment. A franchise tag for Evans would cost $28.4 million -- 120 percent of his 2023 cap charge -- while Mayfield's tag number likely would be around $35 million. The Buccaneers have a third candidate for the tag in 25-year-old safety Antoine Winfield, whose salary would be about $17 million. Re-signing Evans first would help the team's short-term cap flexibility, allowing the Buccaneers to shift much of his $12.2 million cap hit from void years into future seasons.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Huge production in playoff loss

    Evans secured eight of 12 targets for 147 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday. After a relatively quiet performance in the wild-card win over the Eagles, Evans reassumed his usual role as the clear-cut top target for Baker Mayfield, finishing with team-high figures across the board for the Buccaneers' pass catchers on the day. The highly decorated veteran delivered a clutch 16-yard touchdown grab with 4:37 remaining to bring Tampa Bay within one possession, and he was also the intended target on the subsequent two-point conversion attempt that fell short on a play on which there was contact between Evans and the defensive back. A disappointing conclusion to the season doesn't take away from the fact Evans looked as effective as ever in 2023, finishing with a 79-1,255-13 line across 17 regular-season games. With his reception and yardage totals his highest since 2018, Evans, a pending free agent, figures to command a lucrative new contract from either the Bucs or on the open market this offseason.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Trio of catches in wild-card win

    Evans secured three of seven targets for 48 yards in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night. Evans finished third in receptions and fourth in receiving yards despite garnering the second-most targets on the night for Tampa Bay, an unfamiliar level of inefficiency for the multi-time Pro Bowler. However, Evans finished strong with 19- and eight-yard grabs on Tampa Bay's final scoring drive, and he also was partly responsible for his modest night by dropping what looked like a perfectly thrown deep ball from Baker Mayfield just past the midway point of the first quarter. Evans should be heavily involved again when the Buccaneers face the Lions on the road in a divisional-round matchup Sunday afternoon, a game in which Tampa Bay's air attack figures to play an integral part.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Three catches in season-ending win

    Evans brought in three of eight targets for 22 yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Evans logged a pair of receptions for 16 yards on the Buccaneers' first two plays from scrimmage but was then almost shut out the rest of the way. The multi-time Pro Bowler's yardage total was his second lowest of the campaign, and he finished the season just one catch short of reaching the 80-catch mark for the first time since 2018. Nevertheless, Evans could have an opportunity to see a boost in production against the struggling Eagles secondary in a home wild-card matchup next weekend.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Solid numbers in loss

    Evans brought in three of four targets for 70 yards in the Buccaneers' 23-13 loss to the Saints on Sunday. Evans didn't have to deal with the pesky coverage of Marshon Lattimore (ankle), but he was still largely contained by the Saints and gained half his yardage on one reception. The perennial Pro Bowler has recorded at least 70 receiving yards in four of the last six games, however, and while Sunday's target total was his second lowest of the season, he should see more passes come his way in a Week 18 road finale against the Panthers that gives the Buccaneers a chance to clinch the NFC South.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Another two touchdowns Sunday

    Evans brought in seven of eight targets for 86 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 30-12 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Evans was back in the customary position of leading the Bucs in receptions and receiving yards while also paying multiple visits to the end zone for the second time this season. The veteran wideout has eight scores overall in his last seven contests, making him a premium fantasy option for a Week 17 home divisional clash with the Saints.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Another TD grab in win

    Evans brought in four of six targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 34-20 win over the Packers on Sunday. Evans played a rare second fiddle to Chris Godwin for the second straight game, although in contrast to Week 14, the gulf between the two players' numbers was expansive. Nevertheless, Evans was able to round out his fantasy day nicely with his 11th touchdown of the campaign, which came on a 19-yard grab early in the second quarter. Evans has followed up a 7-162-1 line in Week 13 against the Panthers with just five receptions for 65 yards over his next two games, but he'll look to bounce back against the Jaguars' inconsistent secondary in a Week 16 home matchup on Christmas Eve.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Atypically quiet showing Sunday

    Evans brought in one of six targets for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 29-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Evans' final line was extremely out of the norm for the talented receiver, who's consistently served as Baker Mayfield's top target all season. The perennial Pro Bowler hadn't posted fewer than three catches or 39 yards in any game prior to Sunday this season, and he was coming off an explosive 7-162-1 line against the Panthers in Week 13. Evans may have an uphill battle bouncing back in notable fashion in a Week 15 road matchup against a talented Packers secondary.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Makes history in Week 13 win

    Evans caught seven of 12 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers. The future Hall of Famer produced the longest TD of his career in the third quarter, taking a Baker Mayfield pass 75 yards to the house. With the big performance, Evans has reached 1,000 receiving yards for the 10th straight season, something only Jerry Rice had done in NFL history, while Evans becomes the first ever to do it in his first 10 NFL campaigns. Evans has also scored double-digit touchdowns for the fifth time, and the 30-year-old wideout isn't slowing down -- his 9.8 yards per target is his best mark since 2019. With the Bucs still in the mix for the NFC South crown, Evans will try to make an impact again in Week 14 versus a Falcons secondary he posted a 6-82-1 line against in Week 7.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Scores twice in Week 12 loss

    Evans brought in six of nine targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 27-20 loss to the Colts on Sunday. Evans was in the familiar position of leading the Buccaneers in receptions, receiving yards and targets, and he rounded out his afternoon with touchdown grabs of one and 23 yards. The big-bodied receiver now has four touchdowns in his last three contests, and he's been at Sunday's yardage tally or higher in three of the last four contests overall. Evans, who's now just 150 yards away from his 10th straight 1,000-yard campaign, next takes aim at the division-rival Panthers in a Week 13 home matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Hauls in red-zone TD in loss

    Evans caught five of 12 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the 49ers. The veteran receiver was on the other end of a one-yard TD toss from Baker Mayfield right before halftime, but it was otherwise a tough day for Evans despite the fact that he saw a season high in targets. He's been his usual productive self in 2023, scoring seven touchdowns in 10 games including four in the last five contests, and Evans is on pace for his fifth career season with double-digit scores as well as his best receiving yards total since 2018.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Practices in full Thursday

    Evans (quadriceps) logged a full practice Thursday. After beginning Week 11 prep with a capped session due to a quad injury Wednesday, Evans was able to work fully one day later. He's thus ready to take on a 49ers defense Sunday that has conceded the third-most catches (141) to opposing wide receivers in nine games this season. Evans himself has 43 receptions in the same number of appearances, making him a good bet to continue to produce.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Sets pace in receiving yards

    Evans secured four of five targets for 87 yards in the Buccaneers' 39-37 loss to the Texans on Sunday. He also recovered a fumble. Evans led the Buccaneers in receiving yards on the afternoon, but his volume was down overall on a day when Baker Mayfield spread the around to seven targets. The veteran wideout gained a big chunk of his yards on a 53-yard grab in the fourth quarter that was originally ruled a touchdown before replay determined Evans had been down before breaking the plane of the goal line. Evans' yardage total was his highest since Week 2, and although his two-game touchdown streak was narrowly snapped, he could have a good chance of getting back in the end zone in a favorable Week 10 home matchup against the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Salvages night with score

    Evans secured three of six targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 24-18 loss to the Bills on Thursday night. The perennial Pro Bowler was contained effectively by the Bills secondary most of the contest, with his 24-yard scoring grab with 2:44 remaining preventing his night from being a washout on the fantasy end. Evans' reception total tied for his lowest of the season, and he accrued what represented his fewest yards in any game thus far in 2023 as well. Evans does now have a touchdown in five of seven games, a favorable pattern he'll look to extend at the expense of the Texans in a Week 9 road matchup on Sunday, Nov. 5.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Tallies fourth touchdown

    Evans recorded six receptions on eight targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Falcons. Evans was out-targeted by Chris Godwin in a full game for the first time this season, though that didn't prevent him from having a strong performance. He delivered a 40-yard touchdown reception deep down the left sideline on Tampa Bay's second offensive possession and also chipped in a 16-yard reception in the second quarter to account for the majority of his production. Though Evans has only one 100-yard performance this season, he now has four touchdowns and has at least eight targets in five of his six games.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Disappoints despite 10 targets

    Evans recorded four receptions on 10 targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Lions. Evans returned from a hamstring injury after Tampa Bay's bye, an issue that cost him the second half of the team's Week 4 matchup against the Saints. After displaying strong rapport with Baker Mayfield early this season, the duo was off in this matchup, as Evans dropped an open target that hit him in the hands, while a pass that could have gone for a potentially long gain was deflected at the line of scrimmage and resulted in an interception. Though it was a disappointing outcome, Evans remains the top target of Mayfield, as he tallied 10 targets compared to Chris Godwin's seven.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Gains clearance for Week 6

    Evans (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Lions. Evans tweaked his hamstring in the Buccaneers' Week 4 win over the Saints, but a well-timed Week 5 bye appears to have allowed the veteran wideout to make enough progress in his recovery to return to action without missing any games. The 30-year-old steadily increased his practice activity throughout the week, advancing from no participation Wednesday to limited work Thursday before taking every rep in Friday's session. He should be able to take on a normal snap count Sunday while Tampa Bay takes aim at a Detroit secondary that will be without one of its top three cornerbacks in Emmanuel Moseley (knee), who suffered a season-ending ACL tear last week.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Expected to play

    Coach Todd Bowles said Friday that Evans (hamstring) is a "full go" for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Evans returned to a limited practice Thursday before upgrading to full participation Friday. He's on track to play, with the biggest question at this point being whether the Bucs officially list him as questionable or simply remove him from the final injury report Friday afternoon.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Returns to limited practice

    Evans (hamstring) officially was a limited practice participant Thursday. Per Greg Auman of Fox Sports, Evans didn't make an appearance in the portion of Thursday's session open to the media, but the veteran wide receiver evidently logged some on-field work at some point. Auman also noted that coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that the key day for Evans during Week 6 prep will be Friday with regard to the hamstring injury that has lingered since he got injured Week 4. Consequently, how Evans is listed on Friday's practice report will be key for his potential to play Sunday against the Lions.
