Mike Evans' fantasy managers have had a rollercoaster of a week so far. Beginning the week looking as though he was good for Week 1, he was then downgraded to doubtful on Friday, only to be upgraded to questionable again on Saturday.

While the "questionable" tag isn't a guarantee Evans will suit up on Sunday, it is encouraging because it's an upgrade, so things are clearly trending that way.

However, fantasy managers should temper their expectations even if Evans is able to play. While he's most likely your WR1, so you're probably playing him regardless if he suits up, he does draw a tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints and Marshon Lattimore, who did a great job of limiting Evans in 2019.

This is a situation to keep a very close eye on given how much his status has changed in just the last 48 hours.
