Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Solid but unspectacular in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans hauled in four of six targets for 82 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-27 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Evans once again paced the team in receiving yardage, but he actually was just fourth in targets and checked in under 100 yards receiving for the first time in the last three contests. He had been on an unsustainable pace of averaging 15 targets per game over the last three contests, and although he saw a considerable drop in looks Sunday, he still naturally remains a strong play in all formats going into a Week 11 divisional showdown against the Saints.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Eye-popping line in Week 9 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans secured 12 of 16 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 40-34 overtime loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

For the second straight game, Evans put up stellar fantasy numbers in a close Buccaneers loss. The standout receiver now has a 23-378-3 line over the last pair of games, and he's drawn a jaw-dropping 45 targets over the last three contests overall. Evans could have had an even bigger day, as he was the intended receiver on a pass that ended up in the hands of teammate Breshad Perriman in the end zone after it was deflected into the air. Given his elite production of late, Evans remains a very viable play in an upcoming Week 10 matchup against the fast-paced Cardinals.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Tramples Titans secondary in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans secured 11 of 12 targets for 198 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 27-23 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Evans easily led both teams with his reception, receiving yardage and target totals, as the Titans secondary consistently proved to be no match for him all afternoon. He made catches short and long throughout the contest, including a spectacular leaping 46-yard grab down the right sideline. Evans' two scores came from nine and two yards out, and he now has two multi-touchdown games on the campaign. He'll look to stay hot against the Seahawks in a Week 9 matchup.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Bombarded with targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans brought in nine of 17 targets for 96 yards and also caught a two-point conversion pass in the Buccaneers' 37-26 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

A week after being blanked for only the second time in his career, Evans was peppered with a team-high amount of targets. The efficiency wasn't exactly high for the multi-time Pro Bowler, but the performance did serve as a much-needed resurgence. Evans' day could certainly have been even bigger, as he was the intended target on three of Jameis Winston's five interceptions. With a strong performance under his belt heading into the bye week, Evans will look to stay hot against the Titans in a Week 8 road interconference matchup.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Surprisingly blanked in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans failed to bring in any of his three targets in the Buccaneers' 31-24 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Evans suffered the indignity of an empty stat line for only the second time in his career, a shocking development given his talent, his usually ample target share and the fact he'd even come into the game tied for the league lead in receiving touchdowns. The 26-year-old had been enjoying a typically solid season prior to Sunday, but the matchup against Marshon Lattimore is one that Evans has had issues with in the past. Consequently, Evans will look to bounce back in another difficult assignment versus James Bradberry and the Panthers in Week 6 across the pond in London.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Gets loose downfield again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans secured four of seven targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 55-40 win over the Rams on Sunday.

Evans got loose for a long touchdown for the second straight week, recording a 67-yard scoring reception early in the fourth quarter to quickly answer a Rams touchdown that had brought Los Angeles within 11 points. As reported by Jenna Laine of, Evans had to leave the game temporarily in the second half to have his right wrist X-rayed, but he ultimately returned and did not seem to have any further issues. Chris Godwin has clearly ascended to at least the 1-A option at receiver, but as Evans demonstrated Sunday, he's still highly capable of providing big plays in his own right. He'll look to add to the four touchdowns he's accumulated over that last pair of contests when the Buccaneers face off with the Saints in a Week 5 divisional clash.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Scores three TDs versus Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans caught eight of 15 targets for 190 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 32-31 loss to the Giants.

Evans was a one-man wrecking crew in the first half, catching three touchdown passes to help his team to an 18-point lead at the break. He added a season-long reception of 55 yards as well, finishing with the best yardage output since his rookie year. This is exactly what fantasy owners wanted to see from Evans, who totaled just 89 receiving yards on six catches through his first two games. He'll look to pick up where he left off next Sunday on the road against the Rams.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Makes four grabs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (illness) brought in four of eight targets for 61 yards in the Buccaneers' 20-14 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

Evans did manage to bump up his numbers from his lackluster 2-28-0 Week 1 line, but he still had a pedestrian catch rate and also failed to haul in a catchable first-half would-be touchdown. The Buccaneers' presumptive No. 1 receiver has had a bit of a ragged start to this 2019 campaign, and an illness that plagued him leading up to the opener likely had a role in his underwhelming numbers against the 49ers. Evans has been out-targeted by fellow wideout Chris Godwin by a 15-13 margin over the first pair of contests, but he'll look to put together his first breakout effort of the season at the expense of the Giants in a Week 3 matchup a week from Sunday.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Putting illness further behind him
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans is active for Thursday's game at Carolina, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Evans picked up an illness just days before the Buccaneers' season-opening loss to the 49ers. The development clearly played a role in his 2-28-0 line on five targets, but he still managed to play 59 of 69 offensive snaps (86 percent). Evans is used to taking on such a heavy workload, so with the issue further in the rearview mirror, he should look more like the receiver that posted 1,000-plus yards in each of his first five pro campaigns.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Doesn't look like himself in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans, who entered the day with a questionable tag due to illness, brought in two of five targets for 28 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-17 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Not only was Evans' final line a significant disappointment, but Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports the ailing receiver took himself out of the game on multiple occasions in the first half alone due to his health issues. The Pro Bowl wideout looked anything but against some stingy coverage from Richard Sherman, which likely only exacerbated whatever residual illness he was still dealing with. Jameis Winston's generally poor play was more or less the proverbial final nail in the coffin for Evans on Sunday, but the big wideout will have an immediate opportunity to bounce back in a Week 2 battle against the Panthers on Thursday night.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Active Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (illness) is active for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the 49ers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Evans' status for Sunday's opener was never overly in doubt, but it's still naturally good to confirm he'll be available in his usual capacity for what could be a high-scoring affair.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Should be fine for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, is slated to play in the contest, sources tell Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Evans had been tending to quadriceps and groin injuries coming out of the preseason, but he shook off both issues to turn in full practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday. However, the illness prevented him from taking the field Friday for the Bucs' final practice, resulting in him carrying a questionable tag into the weekend. The wideout has apparently progressed well following Saturday's off day, so the expectation is that he'll handle a normal snap count in Week 1 and fill his usual role as Tampa Bay's top target in the passing game.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Listed as questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing practice Friday.

Coach Bruce Arians expects Evans to regain his health by Sunday, but the story nonetheless merits tracking prior to the Bucs' 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. The weather forecast doesn't look great if he's still a bit under the weather, with the high Sunday in Tampa Bay estimated at 87 degrees Fahrenheit.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Misses practice with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans missed Friday's practice due to an illness, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The end-of-week timing isn't great, but coach Bruce Arians expects Evans to be fine for Sunday's game against the 49ers. It remains to be seen if the Bucs will list the wide receiver as 'questionable' on their final injury report Friday afternoon.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Left off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (quadriceps/groin) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Evans has dealt with a number of lower-body injuries since the midpoint of the offseason program, limiting him to one appearance during the preseason. The restricted reps seem to have done him wonders, as he'll go through Week 1 preparations without an injury designation. Working within new coach Bruce Arians' aerial attack, Evans will look to extend his 1,000-yard streak to six seasons in 2019.

August 26, 2019 12:08 PM
Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (quad/groin) has resumed practicing, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Evans' return to practice puts him on track to be good to go for Week 1 action. The wideout presumably will sit out the Bucs' preseason finale, but now that he's back at practice, Evans can resume taking first-team reps alongside Chris Godwin.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Remains out with quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (quadriceps/groin) was again held out of practice Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Evans has been sidelined for a week with his quad injury and it's unclear when he'll be able to return. The team is in no hurry to rush its star receiver back in the preseason and has ruled Evans and other starters out for Thursday's preseason finale. There's been no indication thus far that Evans' injury will impact his regular-season availability.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians confirmed that Evans (quadriceps/groin) won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Browns, Jenna Laine of reports.

Evans has missed practiced all week due to what Tom Pelissero of suggests is a "minor quad or groin issue" that isn't viewed as a long-term concern. When healthy, Evans is entrenched as the Bucs' top wideout, with Chris Godwin slated to start opposite him in 2019.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Absent with quad issue again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (quadriceps) isn't at practice Wednesday, making him unlikely to play in Friday's preseason game against Cleveland, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Unable to finish Sunday's practice, Evans now is absent from work for a third straight day. Coach Bruce Arians wasn't worried about the injury Monday, even leaving open the possibility of Evans playing in Friday's exhibition. That probably won't actually happen, but it's a good sign Arians even viewed it as an option.

Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Could sit out Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (quad) is iffy for Friday's preseason game against the Browns, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Per the report, Evans exited Sunday's practice early with an apparent left quad injury. Though coach Bruce Arians indicated Monday that Evans' issue is "nothing serious," he did acknowledge that he wasn't sure if the wideout -- who is considered day-to-day -- would be ready to play Friday.
