Dolphins Elevate Darrynton Evans

Miami Dolphins running back Darrynton Evans was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster, the team announced. Evans spent the first half of this season with the Bears, totaling a career-high 105 rushing yards, 49 receiving yards, and one touchdown. His promotion to Miami's active roster suggests that there's a real chance De'Von Achane (knee) or Raheem Mostert (ankle, knee) will not play on Friday. Fantasy managers invested in this backfield should check back for updates on the Dolphins' final injury report Thursday afternoon.

Darrynton Evans Scores First Touchdown This Season

Chicago Bears running back Darrynton Evans found the end zone for the first time this year on Sunday night, finishing with four carries for 18 yards and a rushing touchdown. He also added three catches for 22 yards on four targets. With Khalil Herbert (ankle) on IR, there was an opportunity for touches in the Bears' backfield. Evans ended up with fewer touches than both Roschon Johnson and D'Onta Foreman, but he managed to find paydirt and had the best game in the running back room. The 25-year-old had the most yards of any running back and should remain in the mix in some capacity until Herbert returns. The Bears take on the Saints in Week 9, who allow the fifth-fewest points to running backs this season. While Evans is likely to have some role, his matchup combined with an uncertain role should keep him out of fantasy lineups.

Darrynton Evans Breaks Tackles For 35-Yard Score In Win

Buffalo Bills running back Darrynton Evans rushed nine times for 65 yards in Saturday's 24-21 preseason win over the Chicago Bears. The 25-year-old created a highlight play on a slick, tackle-busting 35-yard sprint to start the fourth quarter with a bang. Evans nicely capped off a fairly productive preseason, where he took 21 attempts for 108 yards through three games. Ty Johnson handled 11 carries for 46 yards in this one after signing with the Bills earlier in the week. Assuming Buffalo only retains four RBs heading into the regular season, it likely comes down to either Evans or Johnson for the fourth-string spot. Fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned about the status of either back in upcoming drafts.
