You had to know Evans was going to get peppered with targets against the Panthers when Godwin was announced as out, right? What was somewhat shocking was that Evans lined up in the slot on 47 percent of his routes, something that's really been unheard of. With Godwin back, Evans will move back to a near full-time perimeter role. With A.J. Bouye out of the lineup, the Broncos are starting slot cornerback Bryce Callahan on the perimeter alongside rookie Michael Ojemudia. Through two games, that duo has allowed 18-of-25 passing for 251 yards and two touchdowns in their coverage. Callahan is 5-foot-9 and 188 pounds. Evans moves back and forth, so he'll see a mix of them both, but he can with either matchup. There's zero reason to fade Evans this week when you consider the matchup, even if Brady hasn't looked great through two games. Start Evans as a borderline WR1 once again this week.

Mike Evans scores again in Week 2

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught 7-of-10 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact

Evans has now scored in consecutive weeks, only this time, he also went over 100-yards receiving. The Tampa offense should open up more now that Evans is fully healthy and once Chris Godwin returns as well. Evans gets a tough matchup with Denver in Week 3.
