Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a big-bodied wideout who has gone over 1,000 yards receiving in each of his six seasons. His yard-per-catch average has been north of 17.0 in each of the last two years, which shows his big-play ability down the field. Evans' combination of size (6-foot-5, 231 pounds), speed and physicality make him one of the best at his position in the NFL, especially in one-on-one situations. The 26-year-old has been a consistent top-10 performer at the receiver position for fantasy, but it remains to be seen how he'll fare with quarterback Tom Brady at the helm. It's possible that Evans' targets could take a hit in 2020, but he'll still be worth an investment as a low-end WR1 with upside.
