Roster %


Evans has been a happy surprise this season. He has a 25.0% Target share, a 48.7% air-yard share, and 3.89 YPRR as the WR5 in fantasy. The Evans and Mayfield connection clicking like clockwork was not on my bingo card for 2023, but here we are. Evans will run about 78% of his routes against Darius Slay (73.3% catch rate and 91.3 passer rating) and James Bradberry (60% catch rate and 123.3 passer rating), assuming he has recovered from his concussion. Week 3 Positional Value: WR2

Mike Evans has 42 fantasy points on the season, including 26 fantasy points last week. He should be a WR2 with upside against an Eagles secondary that is 28th against fantasy receivers.

Mike Evans with 6-171-1 does it again on 8 targets (25% target share). Catches another bomb versus a horrible defense. The Chicago Bears D is that bad. Chris Godwin also saw 8 targets, but no scores. Mayfield missed him in the end zone. 5 for 58 to end the day. Think Evans' reign of terror versus defenses comes to an end versus the Eagles strong perimeter cornerbacks. He remains a sell high as we anxiously await this Buccaneers' 2-0 Super Bowl run to end. Godwin is the sharp buy low target. Steady as they come with 5 catches for 50-plus yards on 7 targets per game in his first two contests.
