24-Year-Old Running BackRB
Cincinnati Bengals
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Bengals selected Evans, a 5-11, 211-pound running back from Michigan, in the sixth round with the 202nd pick in the 2021 draft. Evans is both old for a rookie, turning 24 in October, yet lacking recent experience. He sat out 2019 for academic reasons, and then barely played as a fifth-year senior in 2020, netting 73 yards on 16 carries. He was more active in his earlier seasons, and stood out on that tape, giving draft evaluators a reason to put him on their boards. He then managed to stick on Cincinnati's initial 53-man roster, starting off as the No. 3 back behind Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine. Read Past Outlooks

Scores first NFL touchdown

October 17, 2021
Evans rushed four times for 18 yards and brought in all three targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 34-11 win over the Lions on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The rookie saw extended opportunity with Samaje Perine sidelined for Week 6 due to his residency on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and he made good use of his seven touches. The highlight of Evans' afternoon was his 24-yard scoring grab down the left sideline in the first quarter, which served as both the Bengals' first points and the 24-year-old's first career touchdown. Evans' four carries were also the first of his career, and perhaps Sunday's encouraging effort will allow him to carve out a bigger role in the offense moving forward.
