2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Mike Evans delivered a quality rookie season to fantasy owners despite the offense’s struggle to put points on the board. Better quarterback play will almost assuredly see Evans’ poor catch rate of 55 percent improve in 2015, and he did spend a portion of the offseason working with Randy Moss. However, he is not likely to garner 23 percent of his team’s passing attempts as he did a year ago. Before anointing Evans a top-five player at his position and surefire WR1 for the upcoming season, take a closer look at the numbers. Tampa Bay passed the ball 531 times throughout the 2014 regular season against only 353 rushing attempts on its way to the worst record in the NFL. The coaching staff knows it will need to improve the running game, and while Evans will be the focal point of the passing game, it may be a little too bullish to predict a huge step forward in Evans’ second season as a pro. He appears to be over a slight hamstring issue from earlier this spring during OTAs and heads into training camp looking to develop chemistry with his new quarterback. The media hype surrounding Winston will undoubtedly keep Evans’ name in the fantasy spotlight throughout the entire preseason, which could inflate his fantasy stock by the time draft day comes around.

Injury Mike Evans has hamstring strain
Bucs WR left MNF game with injury
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 25, 8:30 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Mike Evans left Monday night’s preseason game against the Bengals with a hamstring strain, according to the team. He's considered day-to-day. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Evans, who just turned 22, caught 68 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns last year as a rookie. With Jameis Winston now in as the Bucs’ quarterback of the present and future, Evans is one of the Bucs’ most important players and could become one of the league’s top receivers. This dampens expectations a bit, as soft-tissue injuries like this can linger.


Winston officially named starting QB for Bucs
Lovie Smith says 1st overall pick will take first team reps
By: John Canario | Fri Jul 31, 3:30 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith announced Friday that No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston will be the team's starting quarterback. "Jameis Winston is our starting quarterback. He'll be taking first-team reps tomorrow," Smith said of the Bucs' first practice of training camp. "We brought him in here to be our quarterback." The quote is noteworthy only because it's the first time Smith has bluntly stated Winston would be the starter. During offseason workouts and minicamp Winston didn't take all the first-team reps, with Smith saying the rookie needed to "earn" the job. Winston apparently did just that. "All this talk about Jameis needing a mentor... Jameis doesn't need a mentor," he said, per NFL Media's Jeff Darlington. "He's ready to take the reins and go with it." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: It's rarely a confidence-instilling tactic to select a rookie quarterback in fantasy drafts, but Winston might be a serviceable slinger in two quarterback leagues. In his favor, he has an ideal wide receiving corps in twin towers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson; both are 6-foot-5 and are major red zone threats.
