Mike Evans caught 3-of-6 targets for 51 yards in the Bucs' Week 10 loss to the Redskins.
It's an improvement off of Evans' 1-16 day on 10 targets last week, but Evans looked like he was going to have a bigger day when he had 28 yards on two grabs early in the first half. The Bucs totaled nearly 500 yards of offense but didn't score a touchdown. Ryan Fitzpatrick had Evans wide open for a two-yard score in the fourth quarter but spiked it right at his feet then fumbled on the very next play. Evans will be a WR1 next week against the Giants.

Mike Evans (knee) wasn't listed on the Buccaneers' final injury report for Week 10 against the Redskins.

The Bucs removed him from the injury report after he was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice. Going against a Redskins secondary that was just torched by Julio Jones, Evans will be a rock-solid WR1 when he takes the field in Week 10.
Nov 9 - 3:07 PM

Mike Evans (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

Coming off a game where he caught just 1-of-10 targets, Evans got a Wednesday breather. He will be safe to fire up as a WR1 against the Redskins.
Nov 8 - 1:20 PM

Mike Evans (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

This appears to be a maintenance day for Evans, who also got a breather last Wednesday before being removed from the injury report entirely on Friday. Coming off his worst game of the season, Evans will look to bounce back Sunday against Washington. Josh Norman's presence limits Evans to low-end WR1 status for Week 10.
Nov 7 - 4:41 PM

Mike Evans caught just 1-of-10 targets for 16 yards in the Bucs' Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

Evans entered halftime 0-of-6, and things did not get better after the break. Evans was the intended "target" on Ryan Fitzpatrick's first interception. Fitz sailed the ball 10 feet over his receiver's head. Evans had previously balled out with Fitz under center, but the quarterback had little time to throw today. The Bucs get Josh Norman and the Redskins in Week 10.
Nov 4 - 4:51 PM

Mike Evans (knee) was removed from the Week 9 injury report.

Evans didn't practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday. Getting taken off the injury report confirms he's fully healthy. After a downswing with Jameis Winston at quarterback, Evans should benefit from the Bucs turning back to Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Nov 2 - 6:25 PM

Mike Evans (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

It puts Evans on track to suit up against the Panthers, though his status can't quite be taken for granted. How Evans rebounds on Friday will be the final hurdle to clear. Having a monster season with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the controls, Evans will be locked and loaded as a WR1 if he suits up against the Panthers.
Nov 1 - 1:20 PM

Mike Evans (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Evans suffered the injury late in last week's loss to Cincinnati. He had a monster game before getting hurt, producing a season-high 179 yards on six catches. This is more than just a simple maintenance day, though it's too early to speculate on his status for Sunday's game in Carolina.
Oct 31 - 4:07 PM

Mike Evans caught 6-of-13 targets for 179 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 8 loss to Cincinnati but left late with a leg injury.

Evans' highlight-reel play was a 72-yard touchdown bomb delivered by Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bengals' zone coverage couldn't account for Evans as he got lost behind the defense and caught Fitzpatrick's throw wide open in stride. Unfortunately, Evans appeared to tweak his leg or knee late in the fourth quarter. We thought it might have been a cramp. Hopefully, the Bucs will shed some light on whether Evans is injured in the near future.
Oct 28 - 4:48 PM

Mike Evans caught 7-of-10 targets for 107 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

After two slow weeks with 107 yards combined through the air, Evans led the Bucs across the board in receiving on Sunday. With Denzel Ward following DeSean Jackson, Evans worked mostly on Damarious Randall on the afternoon. After scoring a touchdown in each of the opening three weeks of the season, Evans has failed to reach the end zone over the past three games. Despite that, he remains a high-end WR1 option in Week 8 on the road against the Bengals.
Oct 21 - 5:24 PM

Mike Evans hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 58 yards in the Bucs' Week 6 loss to the Falcons.

It is an extremely disappointing result considering Jameis Winston threw for 395 yards and four touchdowns. That said, Evans did not make any glaring mistakes or play poorly. He just did not really get the opportunities. That should change next week against the Browns.
Oct 14 - 6:10 PM

Mike Evans hauled in 6-of-9 targets for 59 yards in the Bucs' Week 4 loss to the Bears.

Unlike last week, it was DeSean Jackson (5-112) who benefited immensely as the Bucs trailed 38-3 after two quarters. Evans' nine targets were still a team-high, with Adam Humphries (6-36) seeing seven. Evans has proved to be a true WR1 with Jameis Winston, who replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick at the half, under center and that should continue once the Bucs return from their Week 5 bye.
Sep 30 - 10:23 PM

Mike Evans hauled in 6-of-11 targets for 137 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Evans was given chance after chance downfield and delivered, fighting through double-coverage multiple times to eventually finish with 137 yards. Normally DeSean Jackson would join him in the mix downfield, but it was primarily Evans and Chris Godwin (5-74-1) who were trusted with jump-balls throughout the evening. Now at 23-367-3 on the year, Evans remains a strong WR1 whether it's Ryan Fitzpatrick or Jameis Winston under center in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 1:09 AM

Mike Evans caught 10-of-12 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 2 win over the Eagles.

Evans didn't get loose for vertical bombs, but he out-physicaled the Eagles' defensive backs en route to a high-volume game. His touchdown came on an easy four-yard route where Evans simply used his big body to shield himself from beleaguered Eagles CB Jalen Mills. The Steelers' defense has been getting torched early on, and Evans will catch them on Monday Night Football in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:30 PM

Mike Evans tallied seven catches for 147 yards and a touchdown on seven targets Sunday in the Buccaneers’ improbable Week 1 win over the Saints.

Evans disappointed in his matchups against Marshon Lattimore last season but he flipped the script Sunday, owning the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year from start to finish. The Bucs stud left the field with an injury early in the second half but showed no ill effects upon his return, dusting Lattimore on a 50-yard touchdown strike from red-hot Ryan Fitzpatrick. The 147 yards were Evans’ most in a game since Week 9 of 2016 against Atlanta. He’s now just one receiving touchdown away from tying Jimmie Giles’ team record of 34. Next week’s matchup with Philadelphia won’t be an easy one, though Evans is still worthy of WR1 consideration against the reigning World Champs.
