Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Chase Edmonds saw 16 total touches this past week and he was highly efficient with his opportunity. He logged 5.3 Yards Per Carry and over 10 Yards Per Reception. He's always been a talented receiver out of the backfield and that was evidenced by his top-15 ranking in terms of Yards Per Route Run at the RB position with 1.72. Unless the Cardinals go up big again in this one - which is quite possible - it's unlikely that we see Edmonds hit 12 rush attempts again in this one. However, he should remain involved enough as a receiver to justify a high-end RB3 ranking.
Pat Fitzmaurice

The only one of the Bucs' top three receivers to be left out of the fun against Dallas Thursday night, Evans had three catches for 24 yards on six targets. Evans might be the most fragile of the Buccaneers' receivers from a fantasy standpoint - which seems an odd thing to say about a dude who's strung together seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. But Evans barely cleared the 1,000-yard bar last year despite playing all 16 games, and only the highest TD total of his career (13) kept him in WR1 territory. What if Evans is the third-best receiver on his own team? That's not to say you should fade Evans this week. I expect him to create nightmares for Falcons CB Fabian Moreau, though it should be noted that Evans failed to score a touchdown in his two contests against Atlanta last season.After getting repeated doses of Joe Mixon in week 1, the Minnesota defense will have to deal with a two-headed backfield in Week 2. Chase Edmonds and James Conner split work pretty evenly in Arizona's win over Tennessee. Edmonds played 58% of the offensive snaps and rushed 12 times for 63 yards, adding four receptions for 43 yards. Conner played 49% of the offensive snaps and rushed 16 times for 53 yards. He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Given that the Cardinals were in firm command of their Week 1 game from the second quarter on, I might have guessed that Conner would have had a better game than Edmonds, since Conner seems to better fit a ground-and-pound, milk-the-clock approach. The combination of a superior snap share and a much healthier role in the passing game suggests that Edmonds is the better investment.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Evans caught just 3 of his 6 targets for only 24 yards, as he was the odd man out in the passing game. He also had only 11 targets, 9 receptions, and 156 yards with no touchdowns against the Falcons last year. He is still a WR3 in a great matchup, but Godwin and Brown appear to be the better Buccaneers options in this game.Edmonds was out-carried 16-12 in the Week 1 game, but Conner received his work with the game out of hand and Edmonds out-gained Conner in scrimmage yards 106-53. It is still a timeshare, but Edmonds seems to be the better fantasy option against a Vikings D that did not do well stopping Joe Mixon in Week 1.
