    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is focused on improving his awareness and his yards after catch heading into his fifth season. 'I've got another hurdle to jump over, and I think I'll be much better this year,' Evans said. 'I've got to do better in [yards after catch], and I think if I do, I'll be the most complete receiver.'

    Huddle Up: Four years in a row now Evans has reached at least 1,000 yards. His touchdowns were down last year, but Tampa Bay's offense as a whole sputtered based on expectations. Still, Evans is an elite wide receiver, worthy of WR1 consideration.

  • Posted: 3/9/2018 1:07pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans agreed to a five-year contract extension worth $82.5 million on Friday, March 9. The deal includes $55 million guaranteed, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Evans, who has topped 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first four seasons, is now the second-highest paid receiver in football behind Antonio Brown. Although his 2017 campaign was a disappointment for most of his owners, he already has two 12-touchdown seasons on his resume and remains an elite WR1 for fantasy purposes. The 24-year-old should be entering his prime within the next year or two, which is a scary thought for defenses if Jameis Winston can eventually become a top-10 quarterback in the league.

  • Posted: 2/12/2018 1:56pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and the Buccaneers are not currently negotiating a new deal, according to Evans' agent. Evans' fifth-year option was picked up last year, so he will be earning $13.2 million in 2018. Both parties will evaluate Evans' contract when the time comes, but for now he's going to focus on playing out his current deal, his agent added.

    Huddle Up: Evans is one of the best wide receivers in the league when he's healthy and clicking with Jameis Winston. Last season was a substantial down year for Evans, but don't let that keep you from drafting him as a WR1. Odds are 2017's results will be an anomaly.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:48pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted six receptions for 107 yards on eight targets in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: While Evans was held out of the end zone for the seventh time in eight games, he was able to post his first 100-yard game of the season for fantasy owners in a very important week.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 10:11pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans registered five receptions on eight targets for 79 yards and his first touchdown catch since Week 6 in the team's loss Monday, Dec. 18, opposite the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Evans finally snapped his touchdown drought and it basically could not have come at a better time for his owners. He was also able to manufacture his most receiving yards in a month. Even so, unless he explodes in the final two games, 2017 will go down as the most disappointing campaign of Evans' career, as he's on pace for career lows in receptions and yards. In addition, he has just four touchdowns after plating 12 scores a year ago.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 7:12pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted just two receptions for 25 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions

    Huddle Up: Evans hasn't had a 100-yard game this season, and he wasn't even close in this one. There have been some quarterback issues in Tampa this season, as Jameis Winston has been in and out of the lineup, but he was there in this game and he did next to nothing. He was drafted as a must-start WR1, but lately he has performed only like a WR3 or flex option. Not good.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 3:59pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to two grabs for 33 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Evans is working on five straight games without a touchdown, and he hasn't had a 100-yard game yet this season. He might be one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football in 2017.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 1:22pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught six passes for 78 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Evans has been targeted at least 10 times in four of the last five games and has at least 75 yards in three of those games. He continues to be a solid option for owners and can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 5:32pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 92 yards on 10 targets in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Evans has yet to post a 100-yard game through nine outings and he hasn't found the end zone in three games. He'll look to bounce back in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. You can't bench him in fantasy, as he is still somewhat productive, but he is more of a WR2 right now.

  • Posted: 11/7/2017 3:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Nov. 7. He will not play in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries stand to benefit the most with Evans out, although they will have backup Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing their way. Fitzpatrick is not Jameis Winston, but he is a veteran who has succeeded in the past. Jackson makes for a sneaky WR2 while Humphries is a serviceable WR3 or flex. Cameron Brate remains a TE1.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 1:08pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has been suspended for the Buccaneers' Week 10 contest for his involvement in an altercation Sunday, Nov. 5, versus the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers will now be without Jameis Winston and Evans next week. DeSean Jackson becomes Tampa Bay's No. 1 receiver and can still be started as a WR2 or WR3 against the New York Jets next week. Adam Humphries now demands flex consideration while Cameron Brate is a worthy TE1.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to 13 yards on just one catch in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners can't be happy about his performance, and he probably should have been ejected anyway during the game after a cheap shot on Marshon Lattimore as he was portending to protect his injured quarterback. Winston and Lattimore had words on the sidelines, and Evans popped Lattimore in the back to touch off a fracas. Evans actually ended up with more penalty yards on the day than receiving yardage.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 1:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted five receptions for 60 yards on 10 targets in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Evans has posted at least 60 yards in three straight outings, and six of his past seven games. This was his first game without a touchdown since Week 5, and his second-lowest yardage total of the season, however, to disappoint fantasy owners somewhat. He should bounce back in Week 9 and his first 100-yard day could be in the offing in a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints under the dome.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 6:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in a 30-27 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Evans put up a strong stat line against Buffalo's stout secondary, and he now has three touchdowns in his last four games. Expect more solid production from Evans against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 7:34pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught three of his eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time this year that Evans has been held below five catches, but it was also his most receiving yards to date thanks to multiple big plays. He remains a must-start WR1 regardless of the matchup.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 8:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches on eight targets for 49 yards in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: The matchup looked great on paper, but Evans delivered his most disappointing effort of the season. He draws a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals next time out, but Evans is still a must-start option.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 9:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Evans has 32 targets through three games and remains the go-to option for Jameis Winston. He is a high-end WR1 heading into a Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots that could turn into a shootout.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 67 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Evans was facing a tough Vikings secondary this week but was able to make seven catches for the second straight week. He remains one of the better receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 7:06am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans still has two years left on his contract, but the Buccaneers have started preliminary contract extension talks with Evans, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Evans has become one of the best receivers in the NFL, and the two sides have plenty of time to work out a long-term contract extension. He should be a starting fantasy option no matter the matchup.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 2:04pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Evans entered this season as one of the better receivers in the NFL and did not disappoint in his first game of the season. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in leagues next week even though he is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings secondary.

  • Posted: 8/24/2017 6:55am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 24, for the second straight day.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Dirk Koetter said the issue is nothing serious, but it's worth watching after Evans vaulted himself to WR1 status last season.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 8:31pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught five passes for 57 yards in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Evans finished in the top six in receptions (96), receiving yards (1,321) and touchdowns (12) in 2016 and will continue to be one of the top receivers in the NFL. He will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues and likely will be a first- or second-round pick in drafts.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 8:07pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes on seven targets for 58 yards in a 23-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Friday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Evans led the NFL in targets last season, and despite some offseason additions to the passing attack, he was still the clear No. 1 option for Jameis Winston in this one. Evans is a midrange WR1 in any format.

  • Posted: 7/6/2017 9:40am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans isn't expected to make a big jump in numbers with the addition of WR DeSean Jackson. 'I'm not sure (how much better he can get) from a numbers standpoint, but Mike's confidence is at an all-time high right now,'' head coach Dirk Koetter said. 'And I think with Mike, like with a lot of our guys, the main goal is to win, not create stats. The goal is to win games.''

    Huddle Up: Evans solidified himself as a WR1 last season with a 96-1,321-12 line. There isn't much room for improvement there, and if the team is cautioning expectations, it's a good idea to do so from a fantasy expectation. Evans is still in the WR1 window and can be considered after the first few are off the board.
