Latest dynasty outlook for Mike Evans

By: Jake Rajala

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was clearly dancing like Michael Jackson when Tom Brady un-retired this off-season. Evans hauled in a career-high 14 receiving touchdowns last season and he was a play-maker in the playoffs (236 yds and 2 touchdowns in 2 games). He should continue to be a red-zone freak, especially without the potential absence of Robert Gronkowski (outside of AB’s demise). Gronk had six touchdowns and 802 yards last season. The Bucs weaponry will have to replace his production if he stays out of the Bucs facility.

Evans will continue to be the lead toy for TB12. Fantasy Pros has already sung praises for the Bucs WR “in 2022”, as they stated that he is the consensus 8th best fantasy WR, top WR for Brady and that the Bucs will feel great about having the 10th best WR schedule. Evans may not feel ecstatic about facing Marshon Lattimore, also known as his kryptonite, but he will certainly have Brady throwing him the pigskin against mediocre competition next season.

The long-term outlook for Evans is a bit of a mystery. He is under contract through the 2023 season. I believe Brady could play in 2023, but I highly doubt he will be in an NFL uniform in 2024. Regardless, Evans will be in a Bucs uniform for the next couple of seasons. He should really have a high ceiling in 2022 and he should be the main target with Brady or a new QB in 2023.

He is labeled as the 20th best WR in dynasty PPR via Fantasy Pros. I would honestly hold/buy Evan’s services. Regardless of the GOAT’s options in the 2023 off-season, I am a big believer in his role in Tampa Bay and he has a tremendous work ethic at 28 years old. The WR that has never had a season below 1,000+ yards should be a fantastic, heavily involved weapon for the Bucs for many more seasons in my opinion.
