RB - TEN
Week 17 Outlook
Darrynton Evans carried one time for one yard in a playoff matchup on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Ravens by a 20-13 score.
Evans rarely sees the field on offense with Derrick Henry holding a near-monopoly on the touches out of Tennessee's backfield. The rookie running back will once again be in a backup role in 2021 and will unlikely have any fantasy value.
Darrynton Evans rushed one time for three yards and failed to catch his two targets on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Packers by a 40-14 score in Week 16 action.
With the Titans falling behind the Packers early on Sunday they went away from the run and Evans was not part of the game plan. The rookie running back should see more playing time in Week 17 when the team faces the struggling Texans in a must-win game.
Darrynton Evans rushed eight times for 30 yards and caught both his targets for 27 yards and a touchdown on Sunday as the Titans defeated the Lions by a 46-25 score in Week 15 action.
Evans has been out since Week 5 after hurting his hamstring against the Bills. The rookie running back has looked good in limited action but is stuck behind workhorse Derrick Henry in the Titans offense and will struggle to see the ball.
The Titans activated RB Darrynton Evans (hamstring) off IR.
The third-round rookie is expected to remain a distant No. 2 (at best) behind Derrick Henry. Jeremy McNichols has been occupying that role as of late.
Titans RB Darrynton Evans is being placed on short-term IR Thursday with a hamstring injury.
Evans hasn't been a factor in the Titans offense to this point, so look for them to continue to feed the BEAST (Derrick Henry that it). Evans' backup Jeremy McNichols looked solid in his absence, but he also did not practice Wednesday with a rib injury. Evans should be held onto in deeper leagues as a potential injury handcuff.
