Cincinnati Bengals RB Chris Evans rushed three times for 10 yards and caught a 29-yard touchdown in a 29-26 preseason loss to the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Aug. 29.
Huddle Up: Evans has been praised for his receiving skills throughout the offseason, and the Bengals need a third-down back after the departure of Giovani Bernard. Evans is worth keeping an eye on in deeper PPR formats.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Chris Evans has impressed offensive coordinator Brian Callahan with his receiving skills. 'He's got the most natural hands for a running back that I've ever been around,' Callahan said. 'He's so natural at catching the ball and he can track the ball down the field. A lot of times, running backs struggle down the field. He doesn't. So he could be a unique piece for us.'
Huddle Up: There has been nothing but praise for the receiving skills of Evans since the Bengals selected him in the sixth round. Throw in the departure of Giovani Bernard, and Evans has an immediate path to playing time as a third-down back. Keep him on your radar in deeper PPR formats.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Chris Evans impressed the coaching staff with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. 'Chris's trait that is different than a lot of other running backs in the league is his ability to catch the ball and he's a very natural route runner out of the backfield,' head coach Zac Taylor said. 'He can split out.'
Huddle Up: It is still early, but Evans has been generating some buzz as a third-down specialist. If the hype continues to build during training camp, he could be worth a late-round flier in deeper PPR formats.
