Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had two catches for 27 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 14. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: Evans had been dialed in for the last four weeks, averaging 6.5 receptions, 92 yards and 1 TD per game, but he has now bookended those strong performances with two disappointing ones -- a 3-24-0 line in Week 1 and 2-27-0 tonight. This isn't a new phenomenon with Evans, who has now had nine games of fewer than 50 yards receiving in 22 games played with Brady. That's why Tampa's most talented wideout can't be considered more than a feast-or-famine WR2 in fantasy circles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans registered six receptions for 113 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Evans has three or more receptions in all five outings, five or more grabs in four straight, and six or more catches in each of his past three. He also has 75 or more receiving yards in four straight games, and four total touchdowns during the span. Evans is back as a WR1 in all fantasy formats. The Buccaneers have a quick turnaround, traveling to Philadelphia Thursday for Week 6.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes (on 12 targets) for 75 yards during the team's Week 4 win over the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Despite playing in a downpour the Bucs threw the ball 43 times Sunday night with a team-high 12 of them aimed at Evans. His Week 1 no-show is a distant memory as Evans has gained at least 75 yards receiving in each of the subsequent three games. He's a solid WR2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in eight of his 10 targets for 106 yards in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Evans got off to a bit of a slow start in this one despite seeing occasional - but not regular - coverage from Jalen Ramsey. He picked things up a bit once Tampa Bay fell behind multiple scores late. While some of his production in this game was the product of Antonio Brown (illness) being inactive this week, Evans has 13 catches for 181 yards and two scores in his last two outings following a disappointing effort in the opener. He'll be a strong WR2 option in Week 4 against the New England Patriots.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught five of his nine targets for 75 yards and two touchdowns in a 48-25 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Evans bounced back from a quiet opener to snag a couple of scores while leading Tampa Bay in catches, yards and targets. Inconsistent yardage totals seem like they will be the norm for Evans with Tom Brady under center, but another double-digit touchdown season should also be on tap.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had three receptions for 24 yards during the team's Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Ostensibly the team's No. 1 receiver, Evans found himself down the pecking order in the opener, finishing well behind Antonio Brown, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski in yardage. This isn't anything new for Evans, who finished with 10 yards or less four times last year (including the postseason) but scored 15 times. For better or worse, Evans is surrounded by other high-end options, and that's why his fantasy value should be more of a midrange WR2 as opposed to the WR1 slot he occupied in previous seasons.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans joins Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce as the only two players with at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of the last five seasons.
Huddle Up: Evans has been a low-end WR1 for fantasy (standard scoring) in four of the last five seasons and figures to be ranked as such again in 2021, but beware of some possible TD regression coming Evans' way as he caught a career-high 13 scoring passes in 2020. The only other two seasons (2014 and 2016) in which Evans finished with double-digit TD grabs, he followed those up with three and five touchdown seasons the following year and finished outside of the fantasy top 19 at the position.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is the only player in NFL history to record at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first seven seasons in the league.
Huddle Up: Evans has been one of the most consistent option in fantasy football since entering the NFL and should see similar success next season as long as he can stay healthy. He will be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has told the team that he is willing to restructure his contract if the team needs salary cap this offseason because he wants to keep the team together, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Evans will continue to be the top receiver for the Bucs for years to come, but the team wants to re-sign Chris Godwin this offseason. Fantasy players should consider Evans a weekly starting option in all leagues in 2021.
