Since the Buccaneers are coming off their bye in Week 5, Evans has yet to miss a game despite the injury occurring all the way back in Week 4. That hasn’t stopped the hamstring issue from keeping Evans off the practice field, who has yet to participate even in a limited fashion. He’s been QB Baker Mayfield’s favorite target so far this season, but any time missed by him would be enough to give teammate Chris Godwin a significant upgrade in a matchup where the Bucs could realistically be chasing points. The Lions qualify as a plus matchup with regards to the number of fantasy points allowed to WRs so far this season (10th-most in the NFL), and they’ve been particularly vulnerable in the slot allowing the second most points to receivers lined up there. Godwin would be a solid start if Evans misses.
