Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin played all 68 offensive snaps in the Week 11 loss against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Nov. 17. It was also the fifth straight game in which Godwin played more snaps than WR Mike Evans.
Huddle Up: While a projected quarterback change for Tampa Bay in 2020 will likely muddy the waters at the receiving position even further, fantasy managers may have a tough task choosing between the top two wideouts with Bruce Arians serving as head coach. Both Godwin and Evans have seven touchdowns, but Evans has the lead in yardage.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes for 69 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Evans has been targeted at least 10 times in three of the last five games and has at least 80 yards in four of those games. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game and should be a weekly starting option in all leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans ended up with four grabs for 82 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Evans fell back to Earth after going for 23 grabs, 378 yards and three touchdowns over the past two outings. He is up to 54 grabs, 924 yards and seven scores through nine games, showing why he is a WR1 in all fantasy leagues. He'll look to atone for a Week 5 blanking in New Orleans when he faces the Saints in Week 11.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with 12 catches on 16 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks. With his 198 yards in Week 8 and 180 yards in Week 9, Evans became the first receiver in team history to go over 150 yards in back-to-back games.
Huddle Up: The volume and production have been ridiculous for Evans since he was shut out against the New Orleans Saints in Week 5, as he has amassed 32 catches, 474 yards and three touchdowns on 45 targets over that span. Owners should probably lower expectations to a fantasy WR2 level over the next two weeks as he faces likely shadow coverage from Patrick Peterson and Marshon Lattimore, but it's clear he and Jameis Winston are back on the same page after a slow start.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans racked up 11 receptions for 198 yards and two touchdowns in Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans on 12 targets.
Huddle Up: Evans eclipsed his previous season high of 190 yards posted back on Sept. 22 against the New York Giants. That's six touchdowns over the past five games. He is back as a WR1 in all fantasy leagues after that stinker in New Orleans back in early October. The Bucs travel to meet the Seahawks in Week 9.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught nine passes for 96 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted 17 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Evans was held off the stat sheet last week but was heavily involved in the passing game against the Panthers. He will continue to receive a lot of targets during games and will be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver most weeks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is coming off a reception-less game in Week 5, and QB Jameis Winston says that has to change. 'Bottom line, to win football games, we've got to get Mike Evans the ball,' Winston said Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Evans has had two strong games and three with 6.1 standard fantasy points or fewer, but don't be surprised if the Bucs' trip to London results in the former for Evans who was held without a reception last week for only the second time in 82 career games. Start him with confidence this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted no receptions or offensive statistics on three targets in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: It was all Chris Godwin in this one, as Evans and the rest of the receivers took a back seat. Evans will look to get back on track against the Panthers in London for a Week 6 game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and WR Chris Godwin are the only two receivers in the NFL with at least 350 receiving yards and four touchdowns so far this season, and head coach Bruce Arians said he wants both players to remain heavily involved. 'They have great hands and they're good receivers,' Arians said. 'Just keep throwing the damn ball to them.'
Huddle Up: Evans was already a weekly WR1 candidate coming into the year, and Godwin has been packing up the preseason hype. Tampa Bay faces a solid New Orleans defense in Week 5, but both players remain must-start options.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four of his seven targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Even with Chris Godwin going off against the Rams, Evans still managed as solid line in his own right. He's a weekly WR1 candidate.
