Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
The Titans spent a third-round pick on Evans in the 2020 NFL Draft with the expectation that he would serve as the team's change-of-pace back behind Derrick Henry. Evans made a strong early impression with explosive performances in training camp. However, fumbling issues and a couple different injuries ultimately limited to him only 14 carries and two receptions in his rookie campaign. He found a steadier role on special teams, however, as he racked up 206 yards as a kick returner. Unfortunately, a knee issue landed Evans on IR and he'll miss at least three games out of the gate this season.
With Derrick Henry entrenched atop the depth chart, the Titans didn't exactly have a pressing need at running back, but they still saw enough in Evans to nab him late in the third round of this year's draft. An explosive, elusive runner, Evans can change direction on a dime and is a home-run threat once he gets some green around him. His smaller frame and lack of power could make him ineffective between the tackles, but that's Henry's domain anyway, so it shouldn't be a big issue in Tennessee. Evans also gives good effort in pass protection and is useful enough as an outlet receiver, so he should be able to take on the passing-down role previously filled by Dion Lewis. Should anything happen to Henry, however, Evans has the skills to make a big impact as a three-down option, even if he might need someone else to take on short-yardage work.
