RB - TEN - IR
This Week Outlook
Titans RB Darrynton Evans has been placed on season-ending IR due to a knee injury.
Evans missed the first six games of the season due to the knee and saw limited action in Week 7 before being placed on season-ending IR on Friday. Evans was once considered a mandatory handcuff for Derrick Henry fantasy managers, but injuries have cost him the majority of the last two seasons.
Darrynton Evans rushed two times for seven yards and caught two passes for an additional 11 yards on Sunday as the Titans beat the Chiefs by a 27-3 score.
Evans (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday and surpassed Jeremy Mcnichols as the backup to running back Derrick Henry. Evans will not see a larger workload but is worth picking up as a handcuff to Henry by fantasy managers.
The Titans activated RB Darrynton Evans (knee) from injured reserve.
Evans was designated to return back on October 6th and will finally make his 2021 debut in Week 7. His presence could slightly lower the ceiling for Derrick Henry moving forward, but it would be foolish to overthink this. Henry remains a top-three fantasy football asset moving forward. Evans is a speculative PPR stash.
Tennessee Titans running back Darrynton Evans has been designated to return from the injured reserve list.
The Titans will now have 21 days to activate Evans or place him on season-ending injured reserve. However, he appears to have lost his spot on the depth chart to Jeremy McNichols. Evans contributes on special teams, so he should still be active for game day but may not have much of an offensive role when he first returns.
The Titans have placed backup running back Darrynton Evans on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Evans injured his knee early in the preseason and will now miss at least the first three weeks of the regular season. A valuable handcuff behind Derrick Henry, Evans also missed 11 games during his rookie campaign last year. He's worth stashing in deeper leagues due to the upside he offers if Henry were to miss time.
