Dolphins RB De’Von Achane (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jets. He got in three limited practices this week and was listed as questionable, so a Week 13 return seems possible. RBs Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and Darrynton Evans are active for Miami today. Mostert should handle the majority of the backfield work against New York’s 29th-ranked RB defense.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Dolphins don't expect RB De'Von Achane (knee) to play today against the Jets. He adds that it's not a "long term" injury, so don't be surprised if Achane's ready for Week 13. Pelissero says to expect "a lot" of Raheem Mostert and "some" Jeff Wilson Jr. in the Black Friday game. Mostert makes for a strong fantasy play in a matchup that's much friendlier to rushing than passing. Wilson's a fine roster stash given Achane's situation and could pay off in DFS showdown lineups. But he has only 13 touches through three appearances this season and was a healthy scratch last week. So we wouldn't recommend trying Wilson in common-sized fantasy football league lineups.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday afternoon's game vs. the Jets. He was limited in practice all week. The Dolphins elevated RB Darrynton Evans from the practice squad on Thursday, which is an indication that they're not particularly optimistic about Achane's availability for this one. We'll get Miami's inactives around 1:30 pm ET on Friday.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) was not activated from IR and won't play vs. the Panthers today. Herbert was listed as a full participant in practice all week, so he should be able to return for Week 11. His absence tonight leaves D'Onta Foreman as the favorite for lead duties against Carolina's 31st-ranked RB defense. He's carried 15+ times in three of the last four weeks and is a solid RB2 play tonight. Roschon Johnson will handle No. 2 RB duties and is on the RB3/Flex radar in this plus matchup. See where the Bears land in the updated Week 10 RB Rankings.

The Bears on Monday designated RB Khalil Herbert to return from IR. Herbert missed the past four games after suffering a high-ankle sprain against Washington. His designation doesn't necessarily mean he'll return to the active roster for Week 10. But it does allow him to return to practice and give Chicago three weeks to decide whether to activate him. We'll have to see how Herbert fits in with D'Onta Foreman, Roschon Johnson, and Darrynton Evans once he returns, but Herbert had been the backfield's top guy before the injury.

The Bears’ running game was unsuccessful on Sunday night vs. the Chargers. Veteran back D’Onta Foreman led the team with 9 carries for 34 yards in the Week 8 contest. Rookie Roschon Johnson didn’t fare much better, accumulating 31 total yards on 9 touches. The only Chicago runner who produced fantasy-relevant numbers was Darrynton Evans. The former Titan caught 3 passes for 22 receiving yards and found the end zone on an 11-yard run late in the second quarter. On top of being a mess, this committee backfield is going up against a stout Saints run defense (13th in run defense DVOA entering this weekend) next Sunday. We’re not keen on starting any of them as more than flex options.

Bears RB D’Onta Foreman went off for 33 PPR points in Sunday’s win over Vegas. That’ll happen when you rack up three TDs – each from the five-yard line or closer. Darrynton Evans mixed in for 14 carries -- two fewer than Foreman – but only one surfaced at the goal line. We’ll see if Roschon Johnson (concussion) returns for Week 8 at the Chargers. Even if he does, Foreman’s played well enough to retain a backfield role in the short term.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. He's yet to return to practice, despite sustaining his concussion over two weeks ago. With RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) on IR, the Bears are down to RBs D'Onta Foreman, Darrynton Evans, and Travis Homer, who is set to return from his hamstring injury. Foreman is the favorite for carries after handling 15 of them last week.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's now a long shot to be cleared ahead of Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. Johnson's absence will leave Chicago's backfield to RBs D'Onta Foreman, Darrynton Evans, and Travis Homer, who is set to return from his hamstring injury. Foreman is the best fantasy bet but is an unexciting RB3 or flex play.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. It's concerning that he hasn't made enough progress through the protocol to even get in a limited practice. We'll see if Johnson gets on the field tomorrow, but he seems iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. RB Travis Homer (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday after missing last week's game.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman ran for 65 yards on a team-high 15 carries in Sunday's loss to the Vikings he added a 2-yard catch on his only target. Foreman watched Darrynton Evans draw the other 9 RB carries and ceded a target each to Evans and Khari Blasingame. Foreman did lead the trio in pass routes, according to Pro Football Focus, running 12 to Evans' 9 and Blasingame's 2. Foreman played a solid 60.6% of Chicago's total offensive snaps. Don't be surprised if rookie RB Roschon Johnson makes it through the concussion protocol, though, and works ahead of Foreman in a Week 7 home meeting with the Raiders.

Bears RBs Khalil Herbert (ankle), Roschon Johnson, and Travis Homer (hamstring) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Chicago with RBs D'Onta Foreman and Darrynton Evans, who spent last season with the Bears but was just re-signed earlier this week. Foreman should handle the majority of the backfield work against a middling Minnesota run defense. See where he lands in the Week 6 RB Rankings.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's now an extreme long shot to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. With RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) out and RB Travis Homer (hamstring) likely out, Chicago will be down to RBs D'Onta Foreman and Darrynton Evans, who spent last season with the Bears but was just re-signed earlier this week. Foreman should handle the majority of the backfield work against Minnesota.

Bears RB David Montgomery ran for 61 yards and a TD on 14 carries in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Darrynton Evans handled the team's only 3 other RB carries. Montgomery drew all 5 backfield targets, catching 4 for 6 yards.

The Bears claimed RB Darrynton Evans off waivers from the Titans. The 2020 3rd-round pick was a total bust in Tennessee. We'll see if the change of scenery gets him going, but Evans' best-case scenario in the short term is winning Chicago's #3 RB job behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. Evans remains off the redraft radar.

The Titans released RB Darrynton Evans. He totaled just 16 carries and 4 targets in 6 appearances over the past 2 seasons, but it's still surprising that Tennessee is already throwing in the towel on the 93rd overall pick of the 2020 draft. We'll see where Evans resurfaces, but he's obviously off the redraft radar for now. He's a tepid hold in dynasty.

11:41am EDT 10/10/21

Titans RB Darrynton Evans (knee) is active for today's game vs. the Jaguars. We'll see what kind of role he plays in his 2021 debut.

The Titans designated RB Darryton Evans (knee) off IR. He's eligible to play this weekend, although it's unclear if he'll be ready. When healthy, Evans should take over the change-of-pace role from RB Jeremy McNichols. Evans still looks like just a fantasy handcuff but is worth a stash in deeper leagues.

Titans RB Darrynton Evans (knee) has been placed on IR. He'll miss at least the first 3 games of the season. With Evans out and RB Jeremy McNichols on the COVID list, Mekhi Sargent is currently Tennessee's #2 RB.

Titans RB Darrynton Evans left Friday night's preseason game after a non-contact knee injury in the 1st quarter. Tennessee deemed him questionable to return, which could be a good signal on the injury's severity. We'll keep an eye out for updates, though. Jeremy McNichols stepped in after Evans left.
