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.djeternal2 wrote: Correct they are dependent on volume which Evans is getting in spades. 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.
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.
