Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: This officially closes the door on a potential return. Chris Godwin (hamstring) is likely to follow him, but it seems they're going to wait a week to decide on him. Breshad Perriman is a flex option in a tough matchup against the Houston Texans this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will miss the remainder of the 2019 season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Chris Godwin becomes the Buccaneers unencumbered No. 1 receiver, while Breshad Perriman, Justin Watson and rookie Scott Miller round out the depth chart. Perriman is the most experienced of those latter three and warrants flex consideration in the pass-happy offense of QB Jameis Winston.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is likely out for the season as head coach Bruce Arians said he'd be shocked if Evans returned.
Huddle Up: Justin Watson emerged with five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 14. He'll immediately benefit from Evans' absence and should be picked up in most leagues. If you have the space, you have to hold on to Evans at least for a week to see how he recovers.
