SELL Mike Evans, WR, Buccaneers
To say Evans’ splits with and without Chris Godwin are extreme would be an understatement. Check ‘em out:
Per-game averages without Godwin:
Per-game averages with Godwin:
Godwin is reportedly “50/50” for Week 9 after finger surgery. That suggests he should at least be back by Week 10. And then there’s that Antonio Brown guy, who’s expected to make his Bucs debut this Sunday. With TE Rob Gronkowski also playing a big role in the passing game, there’s about to be a serious target squeeze for Evans.
Now, we’re not suggesting he’ll see 3 targets per game going forward. But he also won’t maintain his current 23% TD rate.
Evans looks like a volatile WR2 moving forward that might still return WR1 value in a trade.
