The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' passing game has created a ton of fantasy football value this season, and coming into Week 11 both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin ranked in the top four in fantasy scoring among wide receivers.

Both have disappointed in a Week 11 matchup with the New Orleans Saints, though.

There was plenty of volume to go around in the first half, as Jameis Winston threw the ball 20 times, but Evans and Godwin combined for only three targets. Godwin didn't catch his lone look, and Evans caught just one of two for six yards.

This lackluster first half is particularly disappointing considering the Saints are playing without their top corner Marshon Lattimore.

Evans was held to zero fantasy points the first time he met with the Saints this season as well, catching none of his three targets. Godwin's lowest fantasy score of the season was 7.0 PPR points against the New York Giants in Week 3.

Before Week 11, the pair had both scored double-digit fantasy points in four consecutive games, and this dud shouldn't cause too much concern about their fantasy outlook moving forward.

Their schedule gets much easier in Week 12 as well. They go from taking on a Saints defense that ranks 11th against the pass in Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings to an Atlanta Falcons unit that ranks 31st in that same metric.
