Draft note
by John Paulsen
Evans got off to a spotty start with Tom Brady, though he was a constant threat in the red zone. He gained two receiving yards in both Week 1 and Week 3, but caught three combined touchdowns. He had six touchdowns in his first five games and a total of 13 on the season. Unlike Chris Godwin, Evans’ production actually increased in the games that Antonio Brown was active. Including the playoffs, Evans averaged 13.1 PPG (half-PPR) in 11 games with Brown and just 11.9 PPG in the nine games without an active Brown. That’s the difference between low-end WR1 numbers and midrange WR2 production. Evans is going off the board as the No. 15 receiver, which is reasonable value. There are just a lot of mouths to feed in this offense.

TB WR Mike Evans - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Mike Evans struggled to get open with Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs covering him. Per Next Gen Stats, Diggs covered Evans on 79.6% of his coverage snaps. As a result, Evans finished 3-24 on six targets. Unfortunately, Evans has some games like this. He had three games last season where he finished with 10 yards or less. Although he can usually bail out his low receiving yards with a touchdown. We expect Evans to get back on track in Week 2 in a favorable matchup against the Falcons. In his only full game against the Falcons last year, Evans was able to top the 100-yard mark. We like Evans as a strong WR2 play this week.
