2. Darrynton Evans, RB
Darrynton Evans has seen the field for a brief second this season and he actually looked like an intriguing option in this offense. However, that was just for a second as Evans immediately went back on I.R. with a hamstring injury.
It has been seven weeks (actually 50 days, but who is counting) since Titans fans have seen Evans, but if he could come back and get in some work before the playoffs it could be huge for this offense.
Right now, Derrick Henry is the Titans leading receiver at running back and he doesn’t even have 100 yards despite having one catch that actually went 53 yards.
This offense is incredibly limited in how they can use their running backs and even though Jeremy McNichols has been a solid blocking back, he just doesn’t have the burst that Evans does as a receiver or a runner.
If the Titans can get Evans going as a running back that defenses truly can’t predict, then you would add another dangerous and complex level to this Arthur Smith offense.
