Gets two offensive snaps in Week 11

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-15

Evans played two of the Bengals' 64 snaps on offense and went without a carry or target in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Texans.

As usual, lead back Joe Mixon dominated the snaps and touches for the Bengals, leaving little opportunity left over for Evans and Trayveon Williams, who combined for one target and no carries. Williams out-snapped Evans by a 14-2 margin Sunday, so he would appear to be next in line for the starting role if Mixon were to miss time at any point.

Not involved in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-04

Evans failed to record a single snap in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Titans.

Evans did not see the field Sunday, as the veteran has fallen down the depth chart behind both Trayveon Williams and Chase Brown. With that said, Joe Mixon remains the only reliable fantasy back in this offense going forward, barring an injury. Evans should remain far of the fantasy radar going forward. The Bengals face the Cardinals in Week 5.

Inactive against Rams

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-25

Evans is inactive for Monday night's game against the Rams.

With Evans the odd man out in the Bengals' Week 3 backfield, Trayveon Williams and Chase Brown are available to handle complementary snaps versus Los Angeles behind top running back Joe Mixon.

Healthy ahead of Week 3

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

Evans (hamstring) is no longer listed on the Bengals' injury report ahead of Monday night's Week 3 game against the Rams, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Evans played just seven offensive snaps in the Week 1 loss and then missed last week's game against the Ravens. He's been no threat to Joe Mixon's workload and might even be behind Trayveon Williams on the depth chart. Evans has zero fantasy value.

Sitting out Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Evans (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Evans' absence will leave the team without their No. 3 running back and kick returner. In his place, Charlie Jones, who handles punt return duties, will likely also take over on kicks, while running back Chase Brown will make his NFL debut after being selected in the fifth round of the 2023 Draft.

Officially questionable for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Evans (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus Baltimore.

As expected, Evans will carry an injury designation into Cincinnati's matchup versus the Ravens in Week 2. If he's out, fifth-round rookie Chase Brown would likely be in line to make his NFL debut.

Week 2 status TBD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Coach Zac Taylor noted that Evans (hamstring) was limited at practice Friday, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Per the report, Taylor indicated that the team will evaluate Evans -- who didn't practice Thursday -- on Saturday to see where the running back is in terms of his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Evans thus appears to be trending toward heading into the weekend officially listed as questionable.

Back at practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Evans (hamstring) is present for Friday's practice, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Evans didn't practice Thursday due to a hamstring issue, so it will be encouraging if he's even officially listed as a 'limited' participant. He logged three touches Week 1 while splitting depth work behind Joe Mixon with Trayveon Williams.
