Evans saw more single coverage than usual in Week 1 against the Bears, and he put up his usual stellar line, catching seven of his nine targets for 93 yards and a touchdown. Even if he sees single coverage again this week, however, he may be in for a slightly down game against Xavier Rhodes, who had success against both Michael Thomas and Antonio Brown. The tough matchup isn't close to enough to move Evans out of the WR1 range, but playing in Minnesota against a tough defense certainly takes the bloom off of Evans' rose. Start him, of course, but this may not be one of his best efforts this season.

Mike Evans with a strong performance

Mike Evans caught seven of nine targets for 93 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Bears. Evans caught an 18-yard pass yesterday as well. He had 1321 receiving yards last season.

Fantasy Impact

Evans had the most targets of the Tampa Bay receivers yesterday and will likely continue to be their top receiver. He had less than 75 yards in four of his last five games of 2016, so this is a nice start to 2017. Evans is a top-five WR and will face the Vikings in Minnesota next week.
