Through 11 weeks, Mike Evans is making his case to be considered among the NFL's best wide receivers. He is second in the league in touchdowns, third in total yards and fifth in receptions. Against the Chiefs, he continued to thrive, catching six passes for 105 yards. Though he didn't find the end zone, Pro Football Focus graded Evans as the best receiver in the league in Week 11.
"With no Marcus Peters in the lineup for the Chiefs, Evans was set up to have a big day, and he did exactly that," PFF's Sam Monson wrote. "CB Steven Nelson was giving up six inches in height to the big receiver, and who knows what in catch radius, and while he managed to break up one deep pass in the end zone, he was otherwise overmatched. Evans caught six passes for 105 yards, with 65 of them coming against Nelson, including some impressive receptions at key times in the game."
Evans was graded as the sixth-best player overall. No other wide receiver graced the top 10.
PFF has Evans graded as the NFL's second-best wide receiver so far this season with an overall rating of 90.5. Atlanta's Julio Jones owns the top spot with a 91.6 rating while Cincinnati's A.J. Green is No. 3 with a rating of 88.1. Seattle's Doug Baldwin and Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald occupy the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.
