Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Evans was the 93rd overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft after averaging 6.1 yards per carry and totaling 32 catches across 2 seasons as Appalachian State’s lead back.
  • The 5’10, 203-pounder clocked a 4.41-second 40-yard dash and earned an 84th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine.
  • Evans was plagued by a hamstring injury for the majority of his rookie season. He appeared in just 5 games, totaling 14 carries for 54 yards and hauling in 2 of 4 targets for 27 yards and a score.
  • Even beyond Derrick Henry, both Jeremy McNichols and D’Onta Foreman were more effective on a per-carry basis than Evans. Those guys both averaged 4.3 yards per carry vs. Evans’ 3.9.
  • Foreman is gone. But McNichols is back for 2021, and the Titans added RB Brian Hill in free agency.
  • Henry has missed just 2 games with injury across 5 NFL seasons; just 1 game over the past 2 years.
  • Non-Henry Titans RBs have totaled just 150 carries and 55 targets over the last 2 seasons.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

After a mostly invisible rookie season, Evans will duke it out with Brian Hill and Jeremy McNichols this summer for snaps behind Derrick Henry. None will be a fantasy factor as long as Henry is healthy. Even if Henry misses time, we’re likely looking at a committee backfield that would keep Evans from being a real difference-maker. He’s a lower-end handcuff.

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.
