Mike Evans caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards in the Bucs' Week 13 win over the Chargers.
He did tack on a two-point conversion catch after a Cameron Brate touchdown, but Evans was shut down by Chargers CB Casey Hayward in this game. Hayward added an interception and drew an offensive pass interference flag on Evans on an end-zone target. Evans is headed for a likely bounce back in Week 14 against the Saints, but Hayward got the individual matchup win and the Bucs got the real-life victory in Sunday's 28-21 upset. Dec 4 - 7:31 PM

Mike Evans caught 8-of-11 targets for 104 yards and two touchdowns Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Evans opened the game on fire, grabbing a 26-yard pass on the first series before capping that drive with a short touchdown. He found the end zone again on the next drive, beating Richard Sherman before hauling in a perfect pass from Jameis Winston down the left sideline. Evans was held to 20 yards in the second half as the Bucs reined in the offense, but he still managed to top 100 yards for the third time in four games. This performance puts him at 1,020 yards on the year, making him just the fourth receiver in NFL history to record at least 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons. He should be able to keep it going next week against the Chargers. Evans will be a high-end WR1 in that matchup.
Nov 27 - 8:02 PM

Mike Evans snagged six-of-13 targets for 105 yards Sunday in the Buccaneers' Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

Evans got off to another sluggish start, failing to haul in a single catch in the first quarter. Of course when you’re as talented as Evans, you’re never down for long. Evans was the recipient of Jameis Winston’s longest completion of the afternoon, beating Steven Nelson for a 31-yard pickup down the left sideline. Evans almost had a touchdown on another deep pass from Winston but Nelson knocked that one away at the last second. Evans came through again with 14-yard grab late in the fourth quarter, allowing the Bucs to take another two minutes off the clock. Sunday marked Evans’ third 100-yard game of the season. He’ll be in play as a WR1 next week against Seattle.
Nov 20 - 5:03 PM

Mike Evans absorbed four-of-five targets for 66 yards Sunday in the Buccaneers' Week 10 win over the Bears.

Evans was completely invisible in the first half while being followed around the field by Tracy Porter. In fact, he wasn’t even targeted. He finally broke loose after halftime, drawing targets on seven of Jameis Winston’s 15 second-half passes. Evans made a heck of a catch on a 39-yard pass from Winston on his first target of the afternoon. Winston did some nice improv work on the play, narrowly avoiding what would have been close to a 20-yard loss. Evans has now reached 50 yards in 11 straight games going back to last season. The league’s most-targeted receiver will be in play as a WR1 next week at Kansas City.
Nov 13 - 5:13 PM

Mike Evans said he's "good to go" for Week 10 against the Bears.

Evans denies he even suffered a concussion last Thursday night against the Falcons. He quickly advanced through the league's testing and was officially cleared yesterday. Evans is a locked-in, target-hog WR1.
Nov 11 - 11:56 AM

Mike Evans has passed the league's concussion protocol.

It's no surprise as Evans has practiced fully the last two days. He'll be ready to go against Chicago on Sunday and should be a top-five wide receiver option this week. Evans leads the league in both targets (103) and touchdown catches (eight).
Nov 10 - 2:04 PM

Mike Evans (concussion) remained "full" on Thursday.

Barring a setback, Evans will be ready to rock against the Bears. Evans has established himself as a top-five WR1.
Nov 10 - 1:33 PM

Mike Evans (concussion) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Evans is still in the league's concussion protocol but should have no trouble getting cleared for Sunday's game against Chicago. The league leader in touchdowns and targets will be a clear-cut WR1 in the likely event that he suits up this week.
Nov 9 - 4:54 PM

Mike Evans remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Evans went through the Bucs' light walkthrough Monday and probably will be on the practice field in some capacity Wednesday, but he still needs to pass further tests. We tentatively expect Evans to be cleared before the end of the week, especially with the Bucs having 10 days between games.
Nov 9 - 12:00 PM

Mike Evans (concussion) is practicing Monday.

He will likely be limited after entering the concussion protocol following Thursday night's game, but even limited work this early in the week gives him a great shot to play. He might even be able to clear the protocol before Wednesday's practice. Evans will be a high-end WR1 against the Bears.

Nov 7 - 10:54 AM

Mike Evans is in the NFL's concussion protocol.

That's the bad news after Evans came up woozy late in Thursday night's loss to Atlanta. The good news is he is expected to practice on Monday, and should have a good shot at playing in Week 10 with the Bucs on a long week. Evans leads the NFL in targets and touchdown catches. Tampa faces the Bears next.
Nov 4 - 4:44 PM

Mike Evans nabbed 11-of-17 targets for 150 yards and two touchdowns before leaving with a head injury Thursday in the Buccaneers' Week 9 loss to the Falcons.

With no running game to speak of, Evans was the Bucs’ only real source of offense on Thursday night. Jameis Winston fed him early, peppering Evans with four targets on the opening drive, which culminated with Evans beating Desmond Trufant for an 18-yard touchdown. He scored again in the second quarter, this time beating Robert Alford for a 24-yard score. Evans made arguably the play of the year on a terrific one-handed grab in the second half but paid the price by taking a huge hit from Keanu Neal. He returned for the following series but exited again and did not return. Evans has 10 days to get healthy before the Bucs’ next game against Chicago. As always, he’ll be a WR1 if he suits up.
Nov 4 - 12:03 AM

Mike Evans caught 4-of-11 targets for 50 yards in the Bucs' Week 8 loss to the Raiders.

Amazingly, Evans went nearly two full quarters between the second and fourth without a target. It was an extremely disappointing day, especially since Raiders CB Sean Smith went down early with a shoulder injury. The 50 yards were Evans' fewest of the season, but he's now drawn double-digit targets in six straight games. He'll bounce back as an elite WR1 for Thursday's game against the Falcons.
Oct 30 - 6:05 PM

Mike Evans secured 8-of-13 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

The 49ers didn't seem to have a game plan to stop Evans, who dominated in the red zone and also got wide open for another touchdown only to lose it in the shadow on a would-be over-the-shoulder catch. An elite every-week WR1, Evans has been a touchdown-scoring machine in the early going and should remain that way with Vincent Jackson out of the picture. Evans gets another juicy Week 8 matchup against the Raiders.
Oct 23 - 7:20 PM

Mike Evans caught 6-of-12 targets for 89 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs' Week 5 win over the Panthers.

Evans again led the Bucs in targets by a wide margin -- the next closest was Jacquizz Rodgers with six -- and he's been targeted at least 11 times in each of the past four games. Jameis Winston simply isn't afraid to throw it to Evans, even in double-coverage, and it nearly cost the Bucs a couple times in this one. Evans' 26-yard touchdown came on a slick double-move, leaving rookie CB Daryl Worley in the dust. Evans has scored in 4-of-5 games. He's an elite WR1 seeing heavy volume. The Bucs host the hapless 49ers after their Week 6 bye.
