2018 Fantasy Outlook
Arguably the most hyped of the Michigan trio of tailbacks in 2018, Evans finally displayed some of the talent that made him a four-star recruit out of high school. He worked behind Karan Higdon in the running back rotation, but Evans still managed 135 totes for 685 yards and two touchdowns and added a position-best 16 grabs for 157 yards and another score. Higdon remains on campus for the Wolverines for 2018, but Evans should get his fair share of touches in the backfield and will likely be the top pass-catching back once again. Read Past Outlooks
No longer on Michigan football team

February 5, 2019
Evans is not a member of the Michigan football team at this time, Aaron McMann of MLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Little is known as to why Evans was dismissed, and the university said they couldn't disclose anything further at this time due to privacy laws. However, Evans announced on his personal Twitter account that he's going through some academic issues right now and will continue his career at Michigan once things are resolved. No word has come out as to when he'll be ready to resume his role in the Michigan backfield. Tru Wilson, Christian Turner and Zach Charbonnet could step up for more carries if Evans isn't ready for the start of the 2019 season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Evans enters this season as Michigan's most productive returning back after De'Veon Smith exhausted his eligibility, having rushed for 614 yards on just 88 carries (6.98 YPC). The issue with Evans' upside is not unlike what any Michigan back has faced since Jim Harbaugh took the reins as the head coach: opportunity. The Wolverines' running back depth chart is littered with starter-level talent, which affords the offense with the ability to be highly situation-specific with its running back personnel. With that, Evans may be Michigan's leading rusher this season, but he may be held to well under 15 carries per game given team and game flow contexts.
