2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Mike Evans has had a wonderful career so far - last season was his first where he played in fewer than 15 games, and it was his sixth season. He has never finished with fewer than 1,000 yards receiving, and has racked up 7,260 yards and 48 touchdowns! He is a tall, strong receiver with excellent jumping ability, great hands, and good route-running. He built an excellent chemistry with former quarterback Jameis Winston, and they regularly burned cornerbacks with double moves that resulted in touchdowns.

It will be interesting to see if he can develop the same chemistry with Brady. They are both consummate pros, so I anticipate they will work until they get in sync, but the biggest question related to Evans is how well he will produce with fewer opportunities at deep balls. He relied on those big plays over the course of his career, so can he be a top wide receiver by focusing on winning the intermediate routes?

It seems to be a given that he is going to be great near the goal line. He is tall, with a huge wingspan and vertical jump. Brady should target him early and often down in the red zone. But I am just not sure about the deep balls, with Brady's arm strength declining. Perhaps with Evans' size and ability to highpoint balls, this won't matter. He'll just wait for it and then go up to get it when the ball gets there. But even if so, I think we'll see fewer long touchdown receptions.

Even if we see some statistical regression due to fewer deep opportunities, Evans is too good to not receive a lot of looks in the passing game, an he's always a threat to score double-digit touchdowns. I have him projected to receive around 120 targets and again go over 1,000 yards receiving. He could go even higher, but there is risk he and Brady do not get on the same page, or that Godwin continues his ascent and becomes the clear-cut top option for Brady.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Antonio Brown ruled out for NFC Championship game
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 22, 11:30 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not have wide receiver Antonio Brown for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Green Bay Packers, coach Bruce Arians announced Friday. "I just talked to him this morning, and to put him on the plane and fly up there and have it swell more doesn't make any sense," Arians said. "He wasn't as close as we'd hoped, so we'll get him ready for the next one." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: AB missed practice this week after injuring his knee in the Divisional Round against the Saints. In his absence the Saints will lean on Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Scotty Miller and rookie Tyler Johnson at the receiver position. Evans and Godwin should be the primary targets. Note that tight end Cameron Brate has out-targeted Rob Gronkowski 11 to 6 during the playoffs.


Injury Mike Evans misses practice Thursday
Hamstring injury

FFToday's Take: Evans' owners should have plan B in place. We should get a good indication of his availability after practice on Friday. Chris Godwin is expected to play despite having a procedure done on Tuesday to remove pins from his injured index finger.
