Head Coach Lovie Smith said after watching rookie receiver Mike Evans on the field at the Bucs’ rookie minicamp that he thinks he’s found a keeper in his first-round draft pick.
Evans (6'5") will now pair with Vincent Jackson (6'5") heading into the 2014 season giving the Buccaneers one of the biggest wide receiver duos in the league. The team is expected to turn to Josh McCown under center, who is familiar with receivers of this nature from his days with the Bears. While we will have to see what Evans can do before labeling him a must-start fantasy option, we have to like what we are hearing thus far. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Rudy Gay (ankle) will start against the 76ers on Wednesday.
Gay has been playing through an ankle injury, and after being on a slight minutes limit for the last couple of games, he isn't expected to be on Wednesday night against the 76ers. Consider him a solid start going up against a bad team, while featuring an average of 17 points and nearly seven rebounds per game on the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Rajon Rondo (toe) will play against the 76ers on Wednesday.
While his fantasy numbers have been solid this season, Rondo has been a turnstile defensively and has brought a bad locker room vibe to Sacramento. Luckily for fantasy owners, the only thing that matters is his statistical production, which has been good so far, so continue to start him on a nightly basis, just like recently saved coach Karl will do going forward.
