Mike Evans caught 3-of-8 targets for 32 yards in Tampa Bay's Week 4 loss to the Panthers.
Evans wasn't shadowed by Josh Norman, but had his second straight disastrously-inefficient afternoon. Evans now has 10 grabs for just 133 yards on 25 targets over the past two weeks. Evans still has WR1 upside, but he'll be best utilized as a WR2 in Week 5 against the Jaguars. Jameis Winston simply isn't playing well enough right now. Oct 4 - 4:51 PM

Mike Evans caught 7-of-17 targets for 101 yards in the Bucs' 19-9, Week 3 loss to the Texans.

Evans' 17 looks were an obvious game-high. Unfortunately, he should've had a much bigger afternoon if it wasn't for what we counted as four dropped passes. It wasn't all Evans' fault, however, as Jameis Winston wasn't exactly accurate on a number of other passes. The 17 targets are very encouraging, and a sign Evans will dominate looks, especially with Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) out. Evans also made an impact as a blocker, paving the way for Charles Sims' 32-yard touchdown on a screen pass. Evans will have a tough date with Panthers budding star CB Josh Norman in Week 4. He'll be more of a WR2.
Sep 27 - 4:40 PM

Mike Evans (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 3.

Evans played a limited role in his return Sunday, getting held without a catch on three targets. He should be close to fully recovered. Evans isn't expected to be on a snap count in Week 3.
Sep 23 - 4:40 PM

Mike Evans said he won't be on a snap count Week 3 against the Texans.

Evans played just 40-of-66 snaps in his season debut against the Saints last week, failing to catch any of his three targets. "I’ll be full go, no pitch count this time," said Evans. "I know I’ll play more this game, so I’m excited about it." Evans obviously didn't suffer any setbacks in New Orleans and will be on the high-end WR2 map against Houston. A big game will happen soon for Evans.

Mike Evans played 40-of-66 snaps Week 2 against the Saints.

Evans was held without a catch on three targets. Evans indicated after the game he was on something of a pitch count coming off a multi-week hamstring injury. He appears to have escaped the game without a setback, meaning the reins should come off next week against the Texans. He will be a high-end WR2 in that matchup.

Mike Evans was held without a catch in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Saints.

Evans had just three targets. He played a limited role in a game where the Bucs attempted just 21 passes. Evans didn't look fully healthy, but was able to play the entire game. He'll look to get on track in Week 3 against the Texans.
Sep 20 - 5:22 PM

Mike Evans (hamstring) is active for Week 2 against the Saints.

The Bucs made Evans a game-time decision after a full week of limited practice, but he's declared himself fully healthy. Evans is a top-12 receiver play against the Saints depleted secondary. His return is a downgrade to the matchups of Vincent Jackson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Inactive for the Bucs are RB Mike James, CB Mike Jenkins, S Major Wright, OG Matthew Masifilo, C Jeremiah Warren, DE T.J. Fatinikun, and QB Ryan Griffin.
Sep 20 - 11:35 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Mike Evans (hamstring) will indeed play in Sunday's Week 2 game against the Saints.

Evans is listed as a questionable after pulling his hamstring in the preseason and missing Week 1. He got in a full week of limited practices and declared himself "fully healthy." Evans is a must-start in redraft and makes for a fine DFS play in tournaments as someone with sky-high upside who will be under-owned.
Sep 20 - 8:24 AM

Bucs coach Lovie Smith said Mike Evans (questionable, hamstring) is "closer" to being ready to play this week.

Evans recently declared himself "100 percent" healthy, but Lovie is apparently not buying it. "You want them to say they're ready to go," Smith said, "but Mike wasn't ready to go last week. He's closer this week, and we have a little bit of time before game time." Evans is shaping up as a game-time decision, but all indications are he will play barring a setback. He is a high-upside WR2 against the Saints' depleted secondary.
Sep 19 - 9:24 AM

Mike Evans (hamstring, questionable) participated in Friday's practice and will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Saints.

Beat writer Rick Stroud said the Bucs are leaning "heavily" toward having Evans suit up. The Bucs' offense didn't look the same without him as rookie Jameis Winston struggled to find chemistry with Vincent Jackson and mostly settled for short check-down passes to Austin Seferian-Jenkins last week. New Orleans' secondary showed no resistance against the Cardinals' vertical attack in Week 1. Assuming he plays, Evans should be approached as a high-upside WR1.
Sep 18 - 1:31 PM

Mike Evans said his injured hamstring is "100 percent" healthy.

Evans added he hopes the Bucs will let him play Sunday against the Saints. Evans got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday. He would be a must-start option against the Saints if he plays.
Sep 17 - 12:58 PM

Mike Evans (hamstring) was listed as limited in Wednesday’s practice.

It’s a step in the right direction after Evans was only able to get in a walkthrough last week. Evans’ status will be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 16 - 5:14 PM

Mike Evans (hamstring) is inactive for Week 1 against the Titans.

Evans said he felt good but the Buccaneers and their notoriously cautious coach Lovie Smith are opting to play it safe. Louis Murphy will start in Evans' place. Vincent Jackson will be Jameis Winston's go-to receiver in Week 1 with tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins also playing a bigger role than usual.
Sep 13 - 1:53 PM

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports Mike Evans (hamstring) is "very doubtful" to play Sunday against the Titans.

Glazer said it would take a "complete turnaround" for Evans to see the field on Sunday. He's still going to go through pregame warmups but that probably won't be enough to sway coach Lovie Smith, who is notoriously cautious when it comes to hamstring injuries. Vincent Jackson will see a huge boost in value with Evans in street clothes.
Sep 13 - 12:53 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports hopes are "not high" that Mike Evans (hamstring) will play Sunday against the Titans.

Evans will test his hamstring out in warmups but Schefter noted that Lovie Smith is famously cautious when it comes to hamstring injuries. With Tampa Bay playing at 4:25 PM ET, fantasy owners might want to look elsewhere. Vincent Jackson and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will both have expanded roles if Evans is forced to sit out.
