Summary

Mike Evans has emerged into one of the top receivers in the NFL with 135 or more targets in each of the past four seasons including a career-high 1,524 yards and 17.7 yards-per-catch. Evans is the perfect pairing with the bold downfield passers from last year of Jameis Winston and now-departed Ryan Fitzpatrick. Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich's pairing as the head coach and offensive coordinator fit the mindset and offensive design for 2019. DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries depart the wide receiver depth chart, clearing 179 targets from last year, likely to be filled by Chris Godwin, a now-healthy O.J. Howard after missing six games, and insulation for Evans' strong target share. Evans is one of the safer projections for a high volume of targets in 2019. (April 13)

Buccaneers | Mike Evans has hamstring issue (Thu Jun 6, 11:34 AM) - Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) missed the three-day minicamp with a tweaked hamstring.

Our View: It is at least a positive sign that Evans was seen jogging off to the side of the practice field with trainers. Evans is the primary target in the Bucs passing game, a fantasy favorite and a no-brainer WR1 in 2019. He's currently WR8 (2.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
