Bucs WR Mike Evans suspended for one game

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was suspended one game for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules in Sunday'€™s game against the New Orleans Saints.

The suspension stems from a physical altercation Evans had with Saints rookie defensive back Marshon Lattimore in the third quarter of Sunday's game.

Fantasy Impact: 

Lattimore got into a verbal confrontation with Buccaneers players on the sideline, including an injured Jameis Winston, who touched Lattimore. Lattimore turned around and shoved Winston before Evans ran in quickly from the field and shoved Lattimore down before falling on top of him as he threw punches. With Evans out, Jackson would take over as the WR1 with Humphries and Godwin pickings up the slack after that. Keep in mind QB Jameis Winston has been shut down, so Fitzpatrick will see his options limited without Evans on the field.
