Evans hauled in his game-long 36-yard reception early in the first quarter, and he was quiet for a good portion of the game thereafter. However, he still finished tops on the team in receiving yards and drew even with Adam Humphries and Jacquizz Rodgers for most receptions. Evans has been productive on the latter front in particular of late, as he amassed between Sunday's 86 yards and 120 yards in three of his past four contests. Now just 115 yards away from eclipsing his career high of 1,321, Evans will look to continue building towards that total against the Ravens in Week 15.
Evans caught four of six targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Panthers.
Evans received one of his lowest target counts of the season and did little of note outside his long gain of 20 yards. He came in having topped the 100-yard mark in two straight, so this dull performance in a seemingly inviting matchup will be frustrating on fantasy owners counting on the big wideout. Evans also failed to reach the end zone again and has now done so just once over his last five games. He'll look to get back on track in what should be a high-scoring matchup with the Saints next Sunday.
Evans co-led the team in receptions while pacing all Bucs pass catchers in receiving yardage. The fifth-year veteran now has back-to-back 100-yard efforts for the second time this season, and his yardage haul for the day vaulted him over the 1,000-yard mark for the campaign. If Jameis Winston can maintain the caliber of play he displayed Sunday, it can only mean good things for Evans' fantasy prospects down the stretch. Evans will look to post his third straight 100-yard effort against the Panthers in Week 13.
Evans bounced back nicely from two sub-par weeks, eclipsing the 100-yard mark and notching a receiving touchdown for the first time in three games. Moreover, he was credited with another score on a recovery of a Jameis Winston fumble into the end zone in the third quarter. Evans' 41-yard touchdown reception with 2:22 remaining also gave the Bucs hope by bringing them to within 38-35, but Winston ultimately threw an interception with 23 seconds left that sealed Tampa's fate. Evans will look to build on his impressive performance versus the 49ers in Week 12.
Evans caught three of six passes for 51 yards during Sunday's 16-3 loss to Washington.
Evans made a couple of highlight-reel catches Sunday, including a falling 23-yard completion in the third quarter that required Evans to go back across his body for the grab. Still, Sunday ended with Evans being held under 60 yards for the fourth time in six games. Although there are two really nice performances sandwiched in between, the star receiver has scored just once after finding the end zone in three straight contests to start the season. Tampa Bay figures to keep pushing the ball downfield, and considering Evans is the team's most-targeted option by a sizable margin, it's probably worth riding it out with him. Next up in Week 11 is an average Giants pass defense giving up 244 yards per game.
