Evans brought in three of eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals.
Evans struggled to generate much volume while often dealing with Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson (quadriceps) early, but he was able to salvage his final line with an impressive 37-yard touchdown grab against Justin Bethel with 2:02 remaining, long after Peterson had exited with his injury. Evans' yardage total and 31.7 YPC were season highs, but his 37.5 percent catch rate was his worst in any contest this season. The Pro Bowler will look to ramp up his production in a tough matchup versus the Bills in Week 7.
Evans brought in five of eight targets for 49 yards in Thursday's 19-14 loss to the Patriots.
Evans' final stat line contained a pair of oddities, namely, a sub-10.0 YPC figure and a target total that didn't pace the team on the night. The 24-year-old wideout was tightly covered for a good portion of the night, resulting in his lowest receiving yardage output through four games. Evans is still seeing a heavy volume of targets (40 through four games), so it's likely just a matter of time before his first 100-yard game of the season. He'll have his hands full trying to accomplish the feat in Week 6, however, considering he's likely to see plenty of shutdown corner Patrick Peterson when the Bucs travel to face the Cardinals.
Evans brought in five of 11 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-23 win over the Giants.
Evans secured a contested six-yard touchdown reception to open up the scoring on the afternoon and paced the Bucs in targets overall. The towering wideout has already been the recipient of 32 looks from Jameis Winston through three contests, although in bringing in only 19 of them, he's been somewhat lacking in efficiency. Evans projects for a pivotal role in a Week 5 tilt against the Patriots on Thursday that could well turn into a shootout.
Evans brought in seven of 12 targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Vikings.
Evans did pace the Bucs in receptions and targets, but his 9.6 YPC was his lowest figure in any game in which he's logged at least one reception since Week 15 of his rookie 2014 campaign. The 24-year-old does have seven catches apiece over his first two contests and has already visited the end zone once, so fantasy owners have to be pleased overall thus far. Sunday's matchup against stalwart Vikings corner Xavier Rhodes proved to be a challenge, and it doesn't figure to get any easier against Janoris Jenkins and company when Tampa faces off with the Giants in Week 4.
Evans brought in seven of nine targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.
Unsurprisingly, Evans served as Jameis Winston's top target on the day and also brought in the Bucs' only passing touchdown. As impressive as the first three seasons of his career have been, the towering 24-year-old wideout could be primed for his best numbers yet in 2017, given that the team's offensive roster is arguably the most talented of Evans' relatively young NFL career. He'll look to build on Sunday's effort in a tough road matchup versus the Vikings in Week 3.
