Fearless Forecast Week 6: 9 Rec, 126 Yds, TD
Projected Points: 23.1
MATT HARMON: You know, we certainly expected more than 35 targets and 54 yards per game from Mike Evans. But let's be clear. He's been very involved as a scoring threat. He's clearly Brady's guy when you get into the red zone. They have been clicking. That chemistry is really there when they get into the scoring area of the field.
So I'm not too worried about the fact that he has just nine air yards per target. I think that does need a little bit of context, considering he's been so heavily involved in those short, constricted areas of the field near the end zone.
Now, you can definitely get over on this Packers secondary. And I absolutely expect Mike Evans to get a ton of volume in this game, considering the Packers have been so good on offense. The Bucs are going to have to do something to keep up on their end.
I'm fearlessly forecasting nine catches for 126 yards and a touchdown.
