Justin Evans Fantasy Football News 2018

The Buccaneers have ruled S Justin Evans (toe) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. That marked a downgrade from his participation level last week with the same injury. We'll check JPP's status Sunday morning. The issue plus the poor sack matchup with New Orleans make him much more of a "sit" candidate than usual.

Buccaneers S Justin Evans left Sunday's game against the Panthers early after aggravating the injury to his right big toe. Evans missed Wednesday's practice and was seen in a walking boot. That bodes ill for Evans' Sunday availability -- and durability even if he plays. Evans practiced every day last week, including a full workout Friday. We've removed him from the Week 14 DB rankings (for now, at least).

Buccaneers S Justin Evans (toe) and LB Lavonte David (knee) are active for today’s game against the Panthers. Each carries some extra durability risk coming off a multi-week injury, but use either as you planned in IDP lineups.

Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (knee) and S Justin Evans (toe) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Each player graduated to a full practice Friday, though, after limited workouts the 1st 2 days. Each player appears to be on the verge of returning after missing the past 2 contests. We'll confirm the status of each Sunday morning.

The Buccaneers will face the Giants on Sunday without OLB Lavonte David (MCL sprain), S Justin Evans (toe) and DE Vinny Curry (ankle). The 1st 2 are starter-level IDP options when healthy. We wouldn't bother chasing their backups. Curry hasn't been an IDP factor, but Carl Nassib has delivered recently amid Curry's inconsistent availability. Nassib has tallied 4 sacks and 6 total QB hits over the past 4 games. He's questionable for Sunday's game as well with an elbow issue but put in limited practice Thursday and a full Friday workout after sitting Wednesday. If Nassib's active Sunday, he'll be an upside option in DL2 territory.

Buccaneers S Justin Evans has missed practice Wednesday and Thursday this week because of a toe injury. That doesn't seem to bode well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Giants. LB Lavonte David also continued to miss practice Thursday, coming off an MCL sprain. If he sits, the Bucs would be without their top 2 LBs and 2 starting safeties. (Chris Conte has been out with a knee injury.) An upside spot already for the Giants' offense is only looking better. We'll keep an eye on Evans and David for IDP purposes.

Bucaneers S Justin Evans left Monday night's game in the 2nd quarter with an ankle injury and did not return. We'll see about his participation heading into Week 16, but the situation makes an already-inconsistent IDP option worth benching.

The Buccaneers drafted Texas A&M S Justin Evans in the 2nd round Friday night. NFL Network's Mike Mayock said he expects Evans to start right away at FS, touting the player's coverage range and aggressiveness as a tackler. Multiple analysts have criticized his propensity for missing tackles, however. Evans should face a fairly clear path to playing time in a weak secondary that has struggled to find full-time safeties in recent years.
