Last season Mike Evans lead the league in dropped passes and only recorded three touchdowns. He also received for a career high of 1,206 yards, and with 6 games remaining that career high is about to change. Possibly with a franchise record.
This season mike leads the NFL in drops again but by half the number. Now, he is placed third in drops but ties in number with the first two. Times targeted for receptions vs drops is what keeps him in third instead of second or first. Although Evans had not received for TD in the game vs Kansas city, he still holds second place in touchdown receptions, now, just behind Green Bay’s Jordy Nelson, who has 9.
Mike Evans is a true deep ball threat, but Tampa Bay fans are coming to learn that he is more than that that he is an all-around receiver and one of the best in the league. Mike has 916 yds through ten weeks, which puts him third overall in the league. He averages 14.1 yards per catch, which also puts him in the top ten in the league. He has 8 touchdowns, which happens to lead the league for receivers. Mike also has 10 catches that have gone for more than 20+ yards.
The rest of the league has been put on notice. Mike Evans will put up numbers.
