Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians wasn't satisfied with how he deployed WR Mike Evans in the opening loss at New Orleans. “We got to do a better job when we play the Saints of getting Mike in different positions,” Arians said, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “I think we let him sit there on the backside too much last week and it’s something we’re going to have to address when we play them later on again. I never want to come out of a game without 10 targets to Mike, at least.” The last part of that quote is sweet music to the ears of fantasy owners, and it doesn't look like hyperbole. Arians can get silly with numbers at times, but Evans averaged 9.7 targets over his 11 healthy games last season (Arians' 1st in Tampa). We'd bet on Week 1 winding up a low point for Evans more than a worrisome trend-setter.
Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) is active for tonight's game against Washington. We know he'll be somewhere short of 100%, though. Just how far short remains to be seen during the game. Evans makes for a risky fantasy play.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Buccaneers WR Mike Evans plans to "try everything he possibly can" to play in Saturday night's game against Washington. It's good that he sounds like he'll be able to play through the Week 17 knee injury, but it also sounds like Evans will be a risky fantasy play this weekend. We'll see about his official game status Saturday evening.
