Mike Evans' consistency in fantasy football is astounding. Over the last eight seasons, he's hit 1,000 or more every year. He's finished as a top 20 wide receiver in weekly fantasy scoring in every season but one. Last season he ranked 11th in red-zone targets and second in total touchdowns at the receiver position. With Tom Brady back in the fold, Evans is a locked-in top 12 option at the receiver position.

Mike Evans commanded just a 16% target share throughout the regular season and playoffs, but still finished eighth in both fantasy points per game and overall in half-point scoring.

The Buccaneers wide receiver achieved his eighth consecutive 1,000-yard season and set a new career-high with 14 touchdown grabs, breaking his record from 2020. Double-digit touchdowns accompanied by a low target share is usually a sign to fade a wide receiver, but that's hardly the case in a pass-happy offense led by Tom Brady.

Evans is THE BEST WR at generating step or more of separation vs. single-man coverage in 2021 (min 70 routes), 73%

Evans gets over 1000 yards every year and Brady loves him as an end-zone target. Chris Godwin likely misses part of the front of the season, Antonio Brown is gone, and while Gronk is 'retired' Evans is the only returning pass catcher Brady trusts.

7/27: Mammoth TD Upside takes a slight hit with Godwin cleared so early & Julio Jones still here. But do think Evans still feasts

6/22: Gronk retires, Godwin coming along slowly -- Mike Evans has THE WR1 upside in 2022

Stat line has been nearly identical in each of 2 seasons with Tom Brady at QB, averaging 72 catches, 1,025 yards and 13.5 TDs in that span

Evans had only 68 receptions for 946 yards in the fantasy season, but he also had 12 touchdowns. Evans has Tom Brady back and he should be in the WR1 / WR discussion.
