Evans curled in one cross and made six clearances, three tackles and a clean sheet in the outstanding 1-0 away victory over Everton on Saturday.

Unbelievable defensive stand by the West Brom rearguard. The Baggies fend off 34 total shots (two off the post), 14 corners and picked up a priceless win despite only holding the ball for 27% of the time. Evans has been invaluable for the Baggies this season but outside the shutout games and the only goal he has this campaign, the versatile defender doesn't posses a high fantasy upside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Everton.

Evans apparently passed a late fitness test to keep his spot in the starting XI, and he'll maintain his role as a holding midfielder in front of a number of centerbacks for manager Tony Pulis.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans (hamstring) will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Everton, manager Tony Pulis said Friday.

Evans has played centerback and defensive midfielder this season, two positions that don't lend themselves to high fantasy scoring in most formats. With Gareth McAuley out with a hamstring injury, Evans could start if he's fit, with Sando holding a defensive midfield spot alongside Claudio Yacob.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans curled in one cross, tallied four clearances, three interceptions and committed three fouls in the scoreless draw to Aston Villa on Saturday.

West Brom defensive rearguard have been fairly solid fantasy performers throughout the season. They have tallied eight clean sheets with only one loss in the last five games. Evans is arguably the best defender of the team. He is averaging 2.4 tackles, 3.4 interceptions and 3.3 clearances per game for the best combined total. Unfortunately, his game doesn't translate that well in most fantasy formats and he only has one goal and no assists. Up next is a favorable matchup against Swansea on Feb. 2.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans notched in the winner on three shots (one on target) and added two clearances in the 2-1 win over Stoke on Saturday.

Evans opened his scoring account this season with a crucial goal. He also had another clear scoring opportunity earlier in the game and could've had a stellar fantasy outing. He's been playing as a defensive midfielder of late, and while that involves him slightly more in the attack, he's fantasy upside is still fairly limited to clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Sunderland.

The Black Cats have really struggled this season, and with Jeremain Lens suspended and Jermain Defoe on the bench, they have even less bite than usual.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans (hamstring) faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Sunderland.

Evans came off in the 24th minute against Crystal Palace and did not feature in either of Northern Ireland's two qualifying fixtures for the Euro 2016. Evans has been progressing well and could feature for West Brom, but his status is still up in the air.

October 3, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Evans came off in the 24th minute of Saturday's match against Crystal Palace with a suspected hamstring injury.

It's unclear just how severe the injury is, though obviously bad enough that he had to come off so early. He is a very important part of the Northern Ireland squad, who will be playing Euro 2016 qualifiers over the international break, so his recovery will be closely monitored.
