One of the reasons why I was a lot lower than consensus on Mike Evans coming into the season was because of his volatility week in and week out. He obviously presents week-winning upside with his talent and skillset, but we knew the targets were going to go Godwin first and then potentially AB as well. That's irrelevant at this point though because he's on your roster and you now have to figure out what to expect from him week in and week out. This matchup screams that Evans should be a superb start, but we simply don't know what his target share is going to be in this one. He received a 13% team target share last week and saw players like Anthony Schwartz, Chester Rogers, KJ Osborn, Braxton Berrios, MVS, and Zach Pascal be more involved in their respective offenses than he was. Now, Evans is clearly the superior talent over all of those options, so he comes with 10x the amount of upside as those players do, but it's not exactly an encouraging sign moving forward. Evans can be viewed as a low-end WR2 this week that absolutely has the potential to finish as a top-5 option or he could fall outside the top-80 WRs again like he did against Dallas.
