Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is one of the tops at his position, posting an incredible seven straight seasons with 1,000-plus receiving yards since entering the league in 2014. It takes an elite talent to be able to slow him down.

On Sunday, he'll face a familiar foe in the New Orleans Saints and cornerback Marshon Lattimore. That Evans-Lattimore matchup has gone in the CB's favor so far.

The Saints have proven to be a difficult matchup for Evans, as he's only averaging 51.4 yards against them, compared to 81.7 YPG against all other teams.
