Titans RB Darrynton Evans Dynasty Rookie Analysis

  • Draft Position: 3.93 | School: Appalachian State
  • Height: 5’10” | Weight: 203 pounds
  • 40-yard dash: 4.41 seconds
  • 2020 Age: 22 | Class: Redshirt Junior
  • Recruitment Stars: 2

Maybe I should have Evans higher in my dynasty rookie rankings: He’s a top-100 pick who is slated to be the direct backup to the volume-ridden franchise-tagged starter on a run-heavy team.

If Derrick Henry were to suffer an injury in 2020 or leave after the season, Evans could be incredibly productive, because he has great athleticism, and in college he was a dynamo.

  • 2017 (12 games): 48-217-0 rushing, 6-34-0 receiving
  • 2018 (13 games): 179-1,187-7 rushing, 12-87-1 receiving
  • 2019 (14 games): 255-1,480-18 rushing, 21-198-5 receiving

To this production, he’s also added three kick return touchdowns. But my sense is that Evans is intended to be a long-term backup and change-of-pace option to Henry, and that doesn’t interest me.

I’d just rather draft a wide receiver, tight end or quarterback who slides down the board.

NFL Prospect Comp: Joe McKnight with more production but no major-program pedigree
