Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted seven catches for 104 yards and a touchdowns on 10 targets in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Evans had the wideout targets all to his lonesome, as Chris Godwin was inactive due to a concussion. Even with Godwin on the field, Evans is a must-start fantasy play. He'll look to carry the momentum over into Week 3 in Denver.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Evans should be more involved in the passing game this week since he was limited in Week 1 because of the hamstring injury. He should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Evans was able to play in Week 1 despite the injury and should be in uniform again this week. He was held to only one catch last week but may be more involved in the passing game since Chris Godwin may not be able to play. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active for the game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' (hamstring) routes were limited in Week 1 as head coach Bruce Arians said 'we were careful how many times we sent him downfield.'
Huddle Up: Evans could be asked to do more in Week 2 with Chris Godwin iffy in the concussion protocol. Evans would be a high-end WR2 against Carolina.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Evans caught just one of four targets for a two-yard touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. He remains a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 and should ramp up his practice level through the week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was held to one catch on four targets in Week 1 versus the New Orleans Saints, but his one reception was good for a 2-yard score.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners who rolled the dice on Evans despite his injury status (hamstring) and matchup (mostly Marshon Lattimore) got lucky when he got isolated on a linebacker near the goal line with 2:41 remaining in the game and the Buccaneers trailing by 17. As long as Evans can get his hamstring closer to 100 percent, he offers enormous upside and should return WR1 value when Tampa Bay hosts the Carolina Panthers in Week 2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 1 game.
Huddle Up: Evans missed most of practice this week but should have at least a limited role in the passing game against the New Orleans Saints. He is a risky option because of the injury but can still be a starting option in most leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 1's game against the New Orleans Saints, although he will likely be on a pitch count, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Evans was upgraded from doubtful to questionable on the injury report Saturday, Sept. 12, which is certainly a good sign for his Week 1 availability. He was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 11, after being sidelined for the team's first two practice sessions earlier in the week. If Evans is active, he merits consideration as a WR2 option in most fantasy formats. However, owners should have a Plan B in place in case he suffers a setback, since the Buccaneers are playing a late-afternoon game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) on Saturday, Sept. 12, was upgraded from doubtful to questionable on the team's Week 1 injury report.
Huddle Up: Evans appears to be trending in the right direction, but his fantasy owners are still going to need to wait for his official status before Sunday's game, and that's going to be somewhat tricky with Bucs playing in the late-afternoon window. If Evans is active, feel free to plug him in as a starting WR2. Still, hammy injuries are always touchy, and things could turn back the other way real quick with an in-game tweak.
