Evans has missed the first two practices of the week with the back injury, though it should be noted that Wednesday's practice was merely a walkthrough. Evans could still play with no practice due to Bruce Arians being extremely comfortable trusting his veterans and medical staff opinions on game day, but fantasy managers would prefer to see him log at least a limited session on Friday. With Antonio Brown slated to be out at least one more week, the Buccaneers could be down to Chris Godwin, Tyler Johnson, and Scott Miller as their top three receivers for Week 12. This is a situation for fantasy managers to monitor but is one that will likely come down to a game-time decision. Mike Evans is currently our seventh-ranked wide receiver for Week 12.
TB WR Mike Evans - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 at Atlanta Falcons
Mike Evans set a season-low in receiving last week as he finished 3-16-0 on six targets. It's his third real dud game of the season as it's the third time he's finished below 30 receiving yards with no touchdowns. Those types of games are bound to happen in an offense with so many weapons as someone is likely to catch the hot hand. Last week it was Leonard Fournette and Gronk. This week it could be Evans again, as he draws a favorable matchup vs. the Falcons. Atlanta has given up the 6th-most average fantasy points to opposing receivers. Evans looked good against Atlanta earlier in the year, finishing 5-75-2 on nine targets. Evans can be trusted as a strong WR1 option in Week 13.
