Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Just when we thought we were past Evans being a volatile fantasy asset, he disappointed majorly in week six with a 2-27-0 stat line. With Brown and Godwin in the lineup and healthy, there's always the possibility that Brady will lock onto one of the other receiving options over Evans and feature them any given game. While Evans still has week-winning upside - and he should remain in starting lineups as a top-24 option as a result - we can't view him as a locked-in WR1 moving forward. We'll simply have to learn to live with the ups-and-downs as fantasy managers. He can be viewed as a high-end WR2 this week. 
Derek Lofland

The Bears are just 20th against fantasy wide receivers, Evans is a solid WR2 at home coming off a TNF game last week. He is a little touchdown dependent, but he is also one of the best red zone threats in the NFL.
