Week 3: at Minnesota Vikings

All WR vs MIN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Buccaneers quickly established Jameis Winston to Mike Evans connection as Evans had 7 receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown in the season opener. Winston threw the ball just 30 times in this game, but it was largely due to game script as the Buccaneers got off to a quick lead and there was no need to continue to throw the ball in this game. Outside of Evans, no receiver stood out as the only receiver with more than three targets was DeSean Jackson who had seven targets but was just able to catch three of those for 39 yards. On the season, the Vikings secondary which had high expectations coming into this season has not played up to their 2016 standards as in 2016 they were the third best pass defense allowing just 208 yards per game and this season they are the 25th pass defense allowing 259 yards passing per game. The biggest difference has been Xavier Rhodes not being 100% healthy along with Trae Waynes really struggling in coverage so far this season. The one bright spot for the Vikings has been Harrison Smith who has been one of the best coverage safeties so far this season and was a big factor why Antonio Brown was held to just 5 receptions for 62 yards. This could be a big opportunity for DeSean Jackson this week as Smith will likely stay to help protect Mike Evans side of the football.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs CHI (9 / 7 / 93 / 1 rec)

Evans hauled in a nice gain on an out route to start his day in the 1st quarter. He caught a touchdown pass at the end of the 1st quarter on a beautiful toe-tapping corner route, immediately after the Bucs recovered a punt return fumble in their own red zone. Evans nearly had another touchdown later in the 2nd quarter when a high pass bounced off his fingertips in the back of the end zone. Winston found Evans across the middle in the waning seconds of the 1st half for a nice catch-and-run that set the Bucs up in field goal range. Evans had two more nice catches on Tampa's opening drive of the 3rd quarter, but didn't see much use after that with the Bucs holding a 29-0 lead at the time. Evans finished the day with 7 catches on a team-high 9 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans plays well in Week 2 (Sun Sep 17, 05:04 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Our View: Evans was the focus of the passing game on a day that Jameis Winston didn't have to do much to deliver the win. He has to go on the road to face a strong Vikings defense next week. He's worth every bit of the first-round pick he cost so far this year.
