Of the 15 multiple-TD games Evans has had over his eight-year career, three have come in 2021. He's coming off the second three-TD game of his career. (The other was in Week 3 of 2019.) With seven TD catches on the year, Evans is tied with DeAndre Hopkins for second in that category behind league leader Cooper Kupp, who has nine. This Sunday, Evans may see a fair amount of Saints CB Marshon Lattimore, who's a tough matchup. But with Antonio Brown still sidelined with an ankle injury, Evans' target outlook is enhanced. He's a high-end WR2 this week with WR1 upside.

 Jones was able to fight through an injury last week and suit up, which is what he has been known to do throughout his entire NFL career. Jones is seemingly always banged up, but he finds a way to battle through and make it out onto the field each week. He certainly was not full strength though as he only played 29 snaps in week seven, which was the same as Marcus Johnson. With a week of rest, we should see Jones play a little bit more in this game against Indianapolis and they're going to need him more than what they did in their blowout win against Kansas City. In a
Derek Lofland

Evans has five touchdowns in his last three games and he should be a WR2 with upside on the road against a New Orleans D that is 22nd against fantasy wide receivers.
