My point is unless the catch % increases instead of decreasing he will be dependent on High TD volume to push him into the top 10 WR which is where quite a few ppl have him. I had this same discussion with a leaguemate earlier tonight. He thought I was nuts because I'm not that high on Evans (I have him 15-20 range). At his current rate if he gets 10+TD which is something no one can count on (just ask the ARob detractors) then he gets into the top 10 WRs. If he gets 5 or fewer like his 3 last yr then he slides to the 18-22 range.
Evans finished WR23 overall. He missed 1 game to start the season and played as a decoy with 0 points in the next game. If you take those two games out, Evans was WR16 from Week 3 to Week 17.

Now, if you look at Evans numbers after Tampa's bye week, from Week 7 to 17, he was WR11. He did that wthout a huge touchdown total.

The whole TD conversation is reasonable if you're looking at a player who doesn't have the talent to post big TD numbers. Ted Ginn probably isn't going to sniff 10 TD's again. But when you're looking at a player of Evans size, deep play ability and red zone dominance, you tend to think 3 touchdowns is a flukey number.

He had a rookie QB, Lovie Smith, and a soft tissue injury. What more did people want from him?

He's every bit the stud everybody thought he'd be.

Yes but at what price?
Would you pay the 1.01and DT for him and a late 2017 1st?
Of course he is a buy at every opportunity, its the price that's the question.

I'm debating offering the 1.01 in a start 3RB/4WR/1flex league. Am I nuts to NOT offer that?

Hmmm that's a tough one in a start 3 RB league. I think it would depend on your roster/future outlook.

Evans is my startup 1.02 right now. Not deterred at all by last year.

Is this sarcasm?
PSA - Haggling is NOT the same as negotiating.

From the home office in Grand Rapids, MI, the Top 5 signs you suck as a trade partner (and probably as a human being)

5. You can name or fabricate 5 risks on every player not on your team.
4. You always respond that you don't value another team's players as highly as they do.
3. You steer conversations away from ADP or any other form of consensus or rankings to gauge trade value.
2. Your trade strategy centers around seeing where someone's at on a player or that "it's just a first offer".
1. Your trade offers are rejected without counter or outright ignored.
