Suspension
June 3, 2019
Evans (suspension) will not play for Michigan this fall, Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News reports. "Chris Evans is suspended for the year," coach Jim Harbaugh said.
ANALYSIS
The university handed down the decision to suspend Evans earlier in the offseason due to an academic issue. His one-year suspension is set to expire in January of 2020, at which point Evans will be able to rejoin the team. In the meantime, Christian Turner, Tru Wilson, and Zach Charbonnet will handle the bulk of the backfield work for the Wolverines in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2018
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.
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.
