Report: Buccaneers Optimistic that Mike Evans Will Play vs. Washington
January 6Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
Evans suffered a hyperextended knee in Week 17 vs. the Falcons, but NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the team is “optimistic” he will be able to suit up Saturday vs. the Washington Football Team. Evans was present at Tuesday’s walkthrough, but he was ultimately listed as a DNP on the official practice report.
Evans being in the lineup would be a big boost for the Buccaneers’ passing attack in a brutal matchup vs. Washington. They rank second in Football Outsiders’ pass-defense DVOA, so Tom Brady is going to need all the help he can get.
If Evans cannot suit up, look for Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, and Rob Gronkowski to pick up the slack. All three would become popular DFS options on FanDuel in that situation.
