Player Outlook
With Samaje Perine off to Denver, there's a chance Evans becomes the Bengals' new passing-downs running back. He will face competition from rookie Chase Brown, who is also capable of handling throws and pass protecting. Whichever guy ends up in the passing downs role, assuming it's not Joe Mixon, he would carry minimal value in PPR leagues. Until it's sorted out, Evans isn't a good Fantasy pickup.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Inactive Sunday

    Evans (healthy scratch) is inactive Sunday against the Steelers. With Chase Brown back from IR, Evans is the odd man out in the Bengals' Week 12 backfield. Also in the mix against Pittsburgh Sunday are starter Joe Mixon, as well as Trayveon Williams.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Not involved in loss

    Evans failed to record a single snap in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Titans. Evans did not see the field Sunday, as the veteran has fallen down the depth chart behind both Trayveon Williams and Chase Brown. With that said, Joe Mixon remains the only reliable fantasy back in this offense going forward, barring an injury. Evans should remain far of the fantasy radar going forward. The Bengals face the Cardinals in Week 5.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Inactive against Rams

    Evans is inactive for Monday night's game against the Rams. With Evans the odd man out in the Bengals' Week 3 backfield, Trayveon Williams and Chase Brown are available to handle complementary snaps versus Los Angeles behind top running back Joe Mixon.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Sitting out Sunday

    Evans (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Evans' absence will leave the team without its No. 3 running back and kick returner. In his place, Charlie Jones, who handles punt return duties, will likely also take over on kicks, while running back Chase Brown will make his NFL debut after being selected in the fifth round of the 2023 Draft.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Officially questionable for Sunday

    Evans (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus Baltimore. As expected, Evans will carry an injury designation into Cincinnati's matchup versus the Ravens in Week 2. If he's out, fifth-round rookie Chase Brown would likely be in line to make his NFL debut.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Week 2 status uncertain

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that Evans (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Friday, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Taylor added that the team will evaluate Evans -- who didn't practice Thursday -- on Saturday to see where the running back is in terms of his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Evans thus appears likely to be officially listed as questionable when the Bengals release their final Week 2 injury report later Friday.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Back at practice

    Evans (hamstring) is present for Friday's practice, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Evans didn't practice Thursday due to a hamstring issue, so it will be encouraging if he's even officially listed as a limited participant. He logged three touches Week 1 while splitting depth work behind Joe Mixon with Trayveon Williams.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Not practicing Thursday

    Evans (hamstring) wasn't in uniform for Thursday's practice, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Evans was listed as limited Wednesday, so the fact that he didn't suit up for Thursday's session suggests that the running back's status for Sunday's game against the Ravens could be in danger. If Evans ends up being ruled out, Chase Brown, who was a healthy scratch Week 1, would likely be active versus Baltimore to provide depth behind top back Joe Mixon.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Nursing hamstring injury

    Evans was a limited participant at practice Wednesday due a hamstring issue. Evans dealt with an undisclosed injury near the end of the preseason, but it's not clear if his current issue is related. The third-year pro played a limited role as Cincinnati's No. 3 running back in the season-opening loss against Cleveland, logging six offensive snaps and finishing with two carries for 12 yards along with one reception for a one-yard loss. However, he didn't appear to be held back by the previous injury as he also served as the team's lead kickoff returner, tallying 45 yards on two returns. Given Evans' ability to take to the practice field (albeit in limited fashion) Wednesday, there's a decent chance he'll be able to play in Week 2, especially if he's able to get in a full practice session by the end of the week.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Present for practice

    Evans (undisclosed) was present for Monday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Evans sat out the Bengals' preseason finale, but now that he's back on the field, the 2021 sixth-rounder will look to secure a change-of-pace role behind top back Joe Mixon. Also in the mix for complementary touches out of the Bengals backfield are rookie Chase Brown and Trayveon Williams (ankle), but if Evans ends up absorbing a good chunk of the team's third-down duties, he could gain fantasy utility in deeper PPR formats.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Likely dealing with injury

    Evans didn't practice last week and isn't in uniform for Saturday's preseason finale against Washington, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Recent reports hint at Evans getting most of the third-down snaps, but he's seemingly now suffered an injury to close out the preseason. He'll have two weeks to get healthy before a Week 1 trip to Cleveland, and he may have a role on offense if only because the other reserve RBs failed to step up this summer.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Gets first chance in backfield

    Evans carried the ball seven times for 15 yards in Friday's 13-13 tie against the Falcons in preseason action. He added two receptions for 20 yards. Evans was the first Bengals running back on the field with Joe Mixon (personal) and Trayveon Williams (ankle) sidelined. He ended up splitting carries with rookie Chase Brown for most of the first half and wasn't particularly impressive rushing the ball. However, Evans continued to make an impact as a pass catcher -- his likeliest role once the regular season begins. It remains to be seen if he can maintain his role in the offense, but for now, he appears to have the upper hand to be Mixon's primary backup come Week 1.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Plays well in preseason start

    Evans rushed seven times for 49 yards and didn't catch his only target in Friday's 36-19 preseason loss to the Packers. He also had a 28-yard kickoff return. Evans got the start with Joe Mixon sitting out and made the most of the opportunity, ripping off a 33-yard run on Cincinnati's third possession. After the offseason departure of Samaje Perine, Evans has a chance to win the backup role behind Mixon. The other running backs in contention for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart are rookie Chase Brown (45 yards on 11 touches Friday) and Trayveon Williams, who missed Friday's game due to an ankle injury. Another strong performance in the team's next preseason game against the Falcons would go a long way in helping Evans lock up the primary backup role.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Inactive Saturday

    Evans (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's matchup with the Patriots. With Joe Mixon, Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams ahead of him on the depth chart and active, Evans will again be a healthy scratch for the Bengals. The 25-year-old has suited up just four times this season and has not suited up since Week 13.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Not active against Browns

    Evans (coach's decision) is inactive Week 14 against the Browns. Evans has been used as a depth running back option this year, but he typically sees most of his work on special teams. With Joe Mixon returning from a concussion this week, the Bengals will elect to keep Trayveon Williams active as the presumed RB3, with Evans now a healthy scratch.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Zero touches

    Evans was held without a carry or catch in Sunday's win over the Titans. More importantly, teammate Trayveon Williams did contribute offensively, with two carries and a catch. Evans also committed a bad penalty on a "pick" play in the first quarter, wiping out a big Tee Higgins catch-and-run.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Suiting up Sunday

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Evans (knee) is good to go for Sunday's game against the Titans, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Evans will return to the field for the first time since Week 9, with his knee injury keeping him sidelined for the Bengals' last two games. Though he's seen most of his work on special teams this season, Evans could have more of a role on offense in Week 12 while top back Joe Mixon (concussion) is sidelined. Samaje Perine is slated to pick up the start, while Evans could serve as the primary change-of-pace option behind him. The Bengals also have Trayveon Williams on hand for backfield depth, though he's more likely to be deployed as a runner than a pass catcher.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Listed as full participant

    Evans (knee) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice report, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Evans missed last week's win over the Steelers due to a knee injury and was limited at practice Wednesday, but he appears to be back to full health ahead of Sunday's game in Tennessee. Joe Mixon is in the league's concussion protocol, so it's possible Evans will take on a starting role in Week 12.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Won't play Week 11

    Evans (knee) has been ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Evans was considered questionable to play against Pittsburgh after injuring the PCL in his right knee against Carolina in Week 9. While he had some extra time to recover coming off the Bengals' Week 10 bye, he'll ultimately be sidelined until at least the team's next contest against Tennessee on Sunday, Nov. 27. With Evans out, expect Trayveon Williams to serve as Cincinnati's third-string running back while Trent Taylor handles kick-return duties.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Iffy for Sunday

    Evans (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Evans sustained a knee injury during Cincinnati's Week 9 win over the Panthers, but he was ultimately given some extra time to recover with the team's Week 10 bye. The 25-year-old practiced in a limited fashion in each of the Bengals' sessions heading into Sunday's contest versus Pittsburgh, but if he's eventually ruled out this weekend, Trent Taylor would be the likely candidate to handle kick returns.
