Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans registered six receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 11 targets in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans at 80 percent    Tue Oct 27, 11:04 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ankle) was asked by head coach Bruce Arians what health percentage he was at before the Week 7 game, and Evans said 80 percent.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers are comfortable using Evans as a decoy because he's clearly not himself. Fantasy GMs have to lower expectations for Evans since he's banged up, making him mostly a flex play or even deep flex play depending on your roster.

  Buccaneers | Week 6 injury report for Tampa Bay    Fri Oct 16, 03:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis (abdomen), DL Khalil Davis (ankle) and RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and are listed as questionable for Week 6 versus the Green Bay Packers. DL Ndamukong Suh (non-injury) and LB Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) did not practice Friday while WRs Mike Evans (ankle), S Jordan Whitehead (knee) and Scott Miller (hip, groin) were limited; all five have been removed from the injury report. LB Lavonte David (knee), WR Chris Godwin (hamstring), TE Rob Gronkowski (shoulder), RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) and WR Justin Watson (chest) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: It doesn't sound like Fournette is 100% yet, so expect Ronald Jones to continue to dominate the work in the backfield. Davis being less than 100% isn't great news as he'll face Davante Adams this week, who isn't on the injury report.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans upgraded Thursday    Thu Oct 15, 05:57 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: That's a good sign for Evans. Even though he's not 100 percent, and we'll likely see Chris Godwin back this week, Evans should still perform like a WR1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 6.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans' routes were limited    Thu Sep 17, 11:40 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' (hamstring) routes were limited in Week 1 as head coach Bruce Arians said 'we were careful how many times we sent him downfield.'

Footballguys view: Evans was out there last week but didn't quite look like himself. He should be even better this week. In fact, Evans might be in for a big week against the Panthers defense on Sunday. With his injury, consider Evans a WR2 with upside in Week 2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is listed as doubtful for Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

S Andrew Adams (hamstring), CB Parnell Motley (hamstring), LB Jason Pierre-Paul (non-injury) and CB Ryan Smith (ankle) practiced in full Friday and have been removed the injury report.

Footballguys view: Scott Miller is likely to start in Evans place, but he's only a long shot to hit. The team could use a lot more two tight sets with Evans out.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans likely a GTD    Fri Sep 11, 01:34 PM

Updating a previous report, the status of Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) likely will be decided before kickoff Sunday, Sept. 13, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday following practice. 'He (Evens) did some individual stuff today,' Arians said. We'll see if he's sore tomorrow. It'll probably be a game-time decision.'

Footballguys view: Evans is best left on your bench unless you don't have any viable options behind him. Even if he plays, it's a late start that will limit your hedge options if you wait, and he'll face Marshon Lattimore. Chris Godwin could get more targets if Evans is out, and Scotty Miller would likely take his place in the pass offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) on Thursday, Sept. 10, did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media.

Footballguys view: Evans is going to be a game-time decision for Week 1. We'll have to see if he practices Friday but things are not trending in the right direction for the veteran receiver. This Buccaneers/Saints matchup in Week 1 could have a ton of points scored but we are unlikely to know Evans status until perhaps right before kickoff.
