He started off slow this season. Fantasy owners wondered where he went. He was not the number one target of Winston, as Chris Godwin was.
However over the past couple of weeks, Evans has been one of, if not the best receivers in the NFL. He has 23 receptions for 378-yards and 3 touchdowns over the last two games against the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans.
You could see him breaking out of it two weeks ago with a 9 catch for 76-yard performance. It’s also not just Evans fans need to worry about.
The Cardinals pass defense has been well, not defensive of late. They gave up 317-yards passing to the 49ers but also 4 touchdown passes from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
They’ve had difficulty covering receivers most of the season as it is. Evans, with the way he’s been playing, could eclipse 200-yards receiving on Sunday if the Cardinals aren’t careful.
