Darrynton Evans Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

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.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bills. He was limited in Thursday's practice but sidelined on Friday and Saturday. McNichols' absence would open the door for RB Darrynton Evans to step into Tennessee's change-of-pace role.

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.

The Titans placed RB Brian Hill on IR with an undisclosed injury. The timing of the move means that Hill is out for the season. That leaves Darrynton Evans as the clear #2 RB and handcuff to RB Derrick Henry.

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.

The Titans signed former Falcons RB Brian Hill to a 1-year deal. Hill, a 2017 5th-round pick, averaged 4.7 YPC last year on a career-high 100 attempts. He’ll battle Darrynton Evans and Jeremy McNichols for the #2 spot behind Derrick Henry. A Henry injury would almost certainly result in a timeshare, though.

The Titans have placed RB Darrynton Evans on IR with a hamstring injury. That leaves Jeremy McNichols as Tennessee's #2 RB. He'd need a Derrick Henry injury to have fantasy value.

Titans RB Darrynton Evans (hamstring) is out for Monday night's opener vs. the Broncos. That leaves only RB Senorise Perry and FB Khari Blasingame to spell RB Derrick Henry. Henry has a shot to play nearly every snap in Week 1.

The Titans added Appalachian State RB Darrynton Evans in the 3rd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 5’10, 203-pounder has the look of a change-of-pace back in the pros, which makes his fit in Tennessee behind Derrick Henry make perfect sense. “He’s a finesse guy,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He’s not a very strong inside runner, but get him on the perimeter and he’s got a really natural feel.” Evans helped himself by clocking a 4.41-second 40-yard dash and earning an 84th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. He averaged a nice 6.1 yards per carry as Appalachian State’s lead back over the past 2 seasons but was obviously facing weaker competition in the Sun Belt Conference. Evans didn’t fare well in Pro Football Focus’ 2019 Elusive Rating, ranking 19th among 21 of the top backs in the class. He looks comfortable in the passing game on tape, though, and tallied 32 grabs over the past 2 seasons. Evans will probably need a Henry injury to be a real fantasy factor this year. But Henry is currently set to hit free agency next offseason.
