  • Chris Evans Struggles In Preseason Opener

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Chris Evans rushed for minus three yards on eight carries while catching his only target for nine yards in Friday's 36-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The 24-year-old drew the start with both Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine being held out. He logged 14 snaps but could not muster any positive yards with his eight rushing attempts. However, Evans did have a 75-yard touchdown run called back due to a penalty. Evans is currently third on the RB depth chart and will compete with Perine to be Mixon's primary backup in 2022. The Michigan product is worth a late-round flyer as he could have a vital role in an explosive offense if Mixon were to go down with an injury.

  • Chris Evans Making Case For No. 2 Spot

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Chris Evans had flashes of promise during his inaugural year. He finished with only 77 yards off 17 carries. However, Evans' most significant contribution came on the receiving end, with the 24-year-old catching 15 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns. The Athletic's Paul Dehner Jr., who's been covering the team for years, believes Evans could be in line to overthrow Samaje Perine on the depth chart, especially if he improves as a pass protector. Obviously, Joe Mixon is the No. 1 option for Cincy. Yet, if Evans can develop, he may serve as a viable insurance policy for Mixon. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on this situation throughout training camp.

  • Chris Evans Could Become Third-Down Back

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Chris Evans could make an argument to supplant Samaje Perine as the team's third-down back this year if he can continue to grow as a pass-protector and build trust in the coaching staff. Evans' role expanded last year as a kick returner, and he's more dangerous as a receiver than Perine. The 24-year-old carried the ball 17 times for 77 yards and caught 15 of his 17 targets for 151 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games (one start) for the Bengals in his rookie season, but he should have a bigger role on third downs in 2022. He's unlikely to be taken in standard-sized fantasy leagues, but you shouldn't forget about him in deeper PPR formats as the better handcuff to Joe Mixon.
