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.

Injury Predictor

Darrynton Evans is explosive with fantastic top-end speed. He has burst through the hole and is instinctive in the open-field. Evans is a zone runner with great one-cut ability. Evans is average when it comes to being elusive and contact balance. He does have great vision and is patient. A threat after the catch and has experience at wide receiver. Evans has one significant roadblock ahead of him in Derrick Henry, but he makes a beautiful complimentary piece.

Dynasty Spin: Henry signed his extension. A four-year deal worth $50 million, therefore, Evans is regulated to back up duties or only a third-down role. He is an exciting player. Unfortunately, there is just a limited volume. Evans is going at the start of the third round in rookie leagues and early 14th to 15th round in startups.
