Tennessee Titans RB Darrynton Evans has impressed QB Ryan Tannehill with his receiving ability. 'Catching the football, really natural,' Tannehill said. 'When you see a running back catch the ball naturally, whether they're coming out of the backfield or split out wide, it definitely adds another element to the offense and can give defenses a hard time.'
Huddle Up: After the Titans handed out a big extension to workhorse Derrick Henry, Evans probably won't see enough touches, even as a receiver out of the backfield, to warrant a starting spot in fantasy leagues. However, Henry owners may want to add Evans as a handcuff.

Tennessee Titans third-round draft choice RB Darrynton Evans signed a four-year contract with the Titans Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Evans likely will serve as the primary backup for the Titans and could be used on third downs. He probably will see a handful of touches each game but can be avoided in most standard leagues.

Tennessee Titans third-round pick RB Darrynton Evans is expected to fill RB Dion Lewis' role on third down.
Huddle Up: Evans is merely a handcuff in fantasy to Derrick Henry at face value. However, if something happens, and Henry decides to hold out instead of signing his franchise tender, Evans could be more intriguing.

Tennessee Titans RB Darrynton Evans' role will be determined on how much he will be able to handle, according to head coach Arthur Smith. Evans probably will be used when RB Derrick Henry needs a rest.
Huddle Up: The Titans do not have a clear No. 2 running back, so Evans could earn the job with a solid training camp. He probably will see a handful of touches each game but can be avoided in most leagues since Henry will see a lot of work.

The Tennessee Titans added some lightning to their running game with the selection of RB Darrynton Evans in the third-round of the NFL Draft. Evans believes his speed and play style meshes well with RB Derrick Henry's style. 'I can change the pace of the game whether you need 80 yards on a quick play or just any kind of explosive plays. I just feel like I can get the job done and we can be a great little combination,' Evans said. Evans was clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash at the combine and his one-cut ability makes him dangerous in the open field, as does his run-after-catch talents on screen plays. The team could also utilize Evans on special teams.
Huddle Up: Evans likely will take over the role vacated by Dion Lewis, a cap casualty this offseason, who had a 54-209-0 run line last year, while also chipping in 26 receptions for 164 yards and one touchdown. He's a late-round consideration in PPR leagues.
