The Tennessee Titans placed running back Darrynton Evans (knee) on Injured Reserve for the second time this season on Friday, which will end his 2021 campaign. Evans missed the first six games of the year while being on IR for a knee injury. He had two carries for seven yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in the Week 7 win over the Kansas City Chiefs before going back on IR this week. Evans was a third-round pick last year and played in five games in his rookie season. Behind the NFL's top rusher in Derrick Henry, the Titans also have Jeremy McNichols and fullback Khari Blasingame on the active roster, with Mekhi Sargent and Dontrell Hilliard on the practice squad.
The Tennessee Titans designated running back Darrynton Evans (knee) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday. The Titans are hoping that Evans can return to practice this week after going on Injured Reserve to start the season. It's unclear if he'll be active for the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but this is good news for the team's running back depth behind workhorse Derrick Henry. The Titans also have Khari Blasingame, Jeremy McNichols and rookie Mekhi Sargent backing up Henry. Evans, a third-round pick last year, carried the ball 14 times for 54 yards and caught two of his four targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in five games in his rookie season in 2020.
Tennessee Titans running back Darrynton Evans (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday. He will miss at least three games and won't be eligible to return until Week 4. The 23-year-old has had trouble staying on the field and was limited to five games in 2020 due to a hamstring injury. Running back Brian Hill is also on the injured reserve, and Jeremy McNichols is on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Mekhi Sargent, who had an impressive preseason, will be the backup running back to star Derrick Henry. Fantasy managers should stash Evans for now, but Sargent is the Titans' backup RB that should be rostered while Evans is sidelined.
Tennessee Titans running back Darrynton Evans served as the team's lead running back in the team's preseason opener against the Falcons, but exited with a knee after his fourth carry of the game. Evans finished with 26 rushing yards on those four carries, but that impressive start is undercut by the injury concern. Considering a hamstring injury sidelined Evans for much of his rookie season, this is definitely something that fantasy managers should be concerned about. Evans is expected to be the primary backup to Derrick Henry, though he'll have virtually no fantasy value as long as Henry is healthy. Jeremy McNichols would be in line for a bump in usage if Evans misses time.
Tennessee Titans running back Darrynton Evans will start Friday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. According to head coach Mike Vrabel, Evans will draw the start at running back after having a strong camp. "He's been doing good at camp because he's been able to be out there every day," said Vrabel. The 23-year-old has seen a significant workload during training camp and could have a vital role on third downs in 2021. Evans logged 14 carries for 54 yards while adding two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown in 2020. The former third-round pick is competing with Brian Hill for the Titans RB2 spot behind star Derrick Henry. Evans starting in the first preseason game gives him a leg up on the competition over Hill and is the Titans running back fantasy managers should target to back up Henry.
Tennessee Titans running back Darrynton Evans has seen a big workload during training camp, per offensive coordinator Todd Downing. "Darrynton Evans has done a nice job with the wrinkles added in the offense." He was limited to five games in his rookie season due to a hamstring injury. The former third-round pick logged 14 carries for 54 yards while adding two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown in 2020. Derrick Henry will do most of the heavy lifting as the Titans' early-down back; Evans could have a vital role on third downs and as a matchup specialist. The 23-year-old is co-number two running back along with Brian Hill on the Titans' depth chart.
Tennessee Titans running back Darrynton Evans figures to have a large role as a third-down and matchup specialist behind workhorse Derrick Henry this year. Evans, drafted in the third round last year, only managed to play in five games in his rookie season and had 14 carries for 54 yards while adding two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown. He took repetitions at receiver in offseason practices and the Titans like the versatility he gives them out of the backfield. The 22-year-old won't be guaranteed a much playing time unless Henry goes down with an injury, but he might be worth a late-round flier in deep PPR leagues, at least as a handcuff for Henry owners.
The Tennessee Titans activated rookie running back Darrynton Evans (hamstring) from Injured Reserve on Monday and also activated offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson from the suspended list. The NFL's leading rusher resides on the Titans in Derrick Henry, so Evans has seen very little work in his first season in the league. The 22-year-old third-round pick from Appalachian State has seen only five carries for 21 yards in two games played for Tennessee. Evans could be Henry's direct backup for the rest of the season, but the Titans also have Jeremy McNichols that can pitch in in a pinch. While Evans would have immediate fantasy value in redraft leagues if Henry were injured, he's just a dynasty/keeper stash for the time being in 2020.
Tennessee Titans rookie running back Darrynton Evans (hamstring) was designated to return from Injured Reserve on Monday, giving the team three weeks to return him to the active roster. Evans, who was selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL draft out of Appalachian State, figured to become the backup for Derrick Henry, but that role has been filled primarily by Jeremy McNichols and D'Onta Foreman. With that trio heading the backfield, Evans figures to carry very little fantasy appeal upon his activation in single-year leagues, particularly with Henry being one of the top running backs in the NFL. With just 13 snaps to his credit thus far in his professional career, Evans can remain firmly on the waiver wire in all season-long formats for the time being.
The Tennessee Titans moved rookie running back Darrynton Evans (hamstring) to the short-term Injured Reserve on Thursday, which means he'll miss at least three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in the Tuesday night win over the Bills. The team also activated defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons from the COVID-19 list. With Evans out for at least the next three weeks, Jeremy McNichols should be the direct backup to bell-cow Derrick Henry in Tennessee's backfield, but he won't hold any standalone fantasy value. Evans has played in just two games so far in his rookie season, rushing the ball five times for 21 yards and not seeing any action in the passing game. He's merely a stash in deep dynasty/keeper leagues.
Tennessee Titans rookie running back Darrynton Evans has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Broncos. Evans has been dealing with a hamstring injury and the slated backup to Derrick Henry will now get his next chance to play against the Jaguars in Week 2. Evans rushed for over 1,100 yards in two of his three seasons at Appalachian State, and could take on a decent role as the RB2 on the team. He's worth stashing right now, as he could provide some value later in the season as he adjusts to playing in the NFL.
The Tennessee Titans are excited about rookie running back Darrynton Evans, and offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said during a conference call this week that how much of a role Evans will have will depend on how much he can handle. The Titans will use Evans to give workhorse Derrick Henry a break, and Evans is likely to give the team more playmaking ability than backup Dion Lewis did in 2019. The 21-year-old should be a solid complement to the bruising style of Henry in Tennessee's run-first offense, giving the rookie immediate fantasy value in redraft leagues this year. If Evans is used enough on third downs, he could generate standalone flex value in deep PPR leagues. But at the very least he'll be a must-have handcuff for Henry owners.
The Tennessee Titans spent a third-round pick on Appalachian State running back Darrynton Evans in the 2020 NFL Draft despite the team having a workhorse lead back already in Derrick Henry. But Evans should be on the field in 2020, says John Glennon of The Athletic, who expects Evans to serve a change-of-pace role for the team and hopefully come into the game on third downs to catch passes. However, Glennon noted that Evans didn't have a ton of pass-game usage in college. The explosive young back should end up with a role that looks similar to the one that Dion Lewis had over the past few years, though potential fantasy owners will hope he looks more like the 2018 version of Lewis -- who had 917 scrimmage yards -- than the 2019 edition when Lewis saw his touches cut tremendously and had just 373 scrimmage yards.
The Tennessee Titans used their third-round pick (93rd overall) on Appalachian State running back Darrynton Evans. Evans is fast -- he ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the combine -- and should complement power-back Derrick Henry nicely in Tennessee's run-first offensive attack. Evans is a one-cut running back with solid explosiveness and excellent vision to find the hole. Henry will still be the lead dog, but after handling 303 carries last season, Evans could share some of the load. The Titans have been one of the most run-heavy teams in the NFL, so expect Evans to go early in rookie-only dynasty league drafts. He'll be a must-own handcuff to Henry.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?
Yes! As you can see from this Julio Jones write up from his player page, we updated his news section as soon as the news broke.
“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
