As we suspected, a full season of Allen can be a wonderful thing, and we finally saw it in '17 - only Hopkins and Brown were better fantasy WRs - is back-to-back injury-free seasons too much to ask?As far as power-forward WR types go, you'd be hard pressed to find a better specimen than Evans - look at last season (71-1001-5) as his floor and '16 (96-1321-12) as something close to his ceiling - I'm comfortable splitting that difference here
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After starting out the season extremely slow (595 yards, one touchdown through the first nine games), Allen exploded over the final seven games of the season, posting 798 yards and five touchdowns. His emergence came as the team started to move away from Antonio Gates, who is no longer with the team in 2018. The concern with him is that Mike Williams (who they drafted in the top-10 last year) will see much more playing time and is a real red zone threat, though the loss of Hunter Henry definitely clears up some targets. Allen has been a fantasy asset when he's on the field, so there's little reason to doubt him now. The lone problem is that Mike Williams is going to be "a thing" in the red zone, potentially limiting Allen's touchdown ceiling. Anyone who drafted Evans last year has a bad taste in their mouth, though we've always said that touchdowns are the hardest thing to predict, even when you're 6-foot-5 and 231 pounds. Evans now has two 12 touchdown seasons under his belt, but the other two netted a combined eight touchdowns. Still, he's now produced 1,000 yards in each of his four seasons, which is something you need to value. If Jameis Winston takes a step forward in his career, Evans could be right back in the first-round conversation next year. The suspension to Winston for the first three weeks might turn out to be okay, because if you recall, Ryan Fitzpatrick produced two top-20 wide receivers with the Jets just a couple years ago in Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Staff Rankings
QB List
I'm sure some of you are shocked to see Keenan Allen above fantasy darlings Julio and Odell, but here's why: solidified high volume role within a primarily passing offense with an elite quarterback, elite athleticism, and BIG questions for the two former receivers. Neither Tyrell Williams nor Travis Benjamin nor Mike Williams even hope to diminish from his role, and last season went a long way to dispelling thoughts of Allen as a "glass bones" receiver. Draft Allen confidently in your top 5 receivers.Sitting atop the 3rd tier of my rankings is the Bucaneers' undisputed #1 receiver, Mike Evans. Typically thought of as a top 10 wideout, I have Evans in my fourth tier for a plethora of red flags which point to his down 2017 as more indicative of his 2018 than some might think. Evans sports a 52.2 % catch rate, good for 87th among wideouts. While a great deal of this poor catch rate might be due to poor quarterback play, this year looks no better in that department as he'll be catching passes from Harvard's resident genius Ryan Fitzpatrick, and embattled (former?) franchise quarterback Jameis Winston. Even if we decide to ignore that, he remains in an offense anchored by a subpar O-line and featuring several accessory pieces with established target shares and a young tight end in O.J. Howard poised for an expanded role in his sophomore season. You'll enjoy the highlight catches Evans can and will make, but know his upside is crippled due to the subpar team surrounding him.
Chet Gresham

Allen had a great rookie season and then two seasons marred by injury. Last season, we finally got to see what Allen is capable of outside of that rookie year, and he was great. Even with just six touchdowns, Allen finished as the third-best fantasy wide receiver in PPR leagues. There's no reason to believe things will change in 2018.Evans has now gone through a great season, a poor season, a great season again and then a poor season again. If the pattern holds, then we get a great season in 2018! Of course, that's not how this works, but we know what he can do and we know he's stayed relatively healthy and will continue to see good target numbers. His floor isn't as high as I'd like, but his ceiling is.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Allen was second in the NFL in red zone looks last year and should remain busy in that area as the Chargers keep losing tight ends. Strong rebound target, Evans is being undervalued due to his disappointing 2017 that still resulted in 136 targets in 15 games and 1,000+ yards.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
The full season of Allen proved well worth the wait. After missing half of 2015 and all but one game in 2016, he caught 102 of 159 targets for 1,393 yards in his first-ever 16-game campaign. Four straight 100-yard games made him fantasy's premier WR from Week 10 onward, and no wideout received more targets inside the 20 (24) or 10 (15). Just think how seismic his season would look with more than six TDs, a strong possibility in 2018 with Hunter Henry out of the picture.Jameis Winston's three-game suspension doesn't pose a major problem for Evans, who caught 14 of 30 targets for 265 yards and a TD in three full games with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Yet an inefficient WR20 season still sparks concern regardless of Tampa Bay's signal-caller. He barely exceeded 1,000 yards (1,001) for the fourth time in as many years, but posted an underwhelming 52.9 catch % and five TDs. While high volume-especially his nine looks inside the 10 that yielded one score-should yield a bounce-back, 2016's 96 catches is now the clear outlier in a career catalog with no other 75-catch output.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Allen had been healthy for only nine games over the past two seasons. He came back from a torn ACL to play in all 16 games last year, catching 102 passes for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns. Allen had seven 100-yard games. I think he comes back to WR1 form, but the Winston suspension will slow his start.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Allen had a great year returning from injury, posting 102 receptions for 1,393 yards and 6 touchdowns. He should be an elite fantasy option again in 2018. Evans had only 71 receptions for 1,001 yards and 5 touchdowns, but he is an elite talent and he should rebound next year. The likely 3-game suspension of QB Jameis Winston hurts his value early in the year, but he should still be in the high WR2 to low WR1 mix.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
 Jameis Winston is suspended for the first 3 games of the season. That's the first reason I have Mike Evans ranked as a WR 2 this season. The second is how difficult their schedule is. They face one of the hardest schedules of passing defenses in the league. When you add to that the amount of weapons that offense has (speaking in terms of total numbers) you get a guy who needs to win on efficiency in order to pay off. That's not something Evans has showed us he can do. I'm staying away this season and I suggest you do the same.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Health is always Allen's issue but he looked good last year and could be even better in 2018. Slight bump in PPR formatsHe's taking a massive hit in the first three weeks and his long-term outlook isn't overly appealing for 2018
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Allen was sensational at the end of the season, as we have typically seen from him when he stays healthy. Granted, staying on the field has been a struggle in the past, but you can bet on positive touchdown regression and another huge year if he plays 15 or 16 games.Evans has managed 1,000+ yards each of his first four seasons, but he was just the WR20 in 2017. With Winston out the first three weeks, Evans' stock drops a little, but he is still a WR1 who can be targeted at the end of second rounds.
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Always good for a WR1 season if he can play at least 14 gamesGigantic upside but showed that he has a lower floor than the receivers listed above him
