Evans grabbed a short pass in the red zone and exhibited excellent body control to stay in bounds and get the ball over the goal line for a touchdown. He is mostly a blocker, however, and even then the Saints do not use a fullback in their backfield often so his fantasy value is minimal at best.

2009 Week 4 vs NYJ (3 / 12 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Evans almost scored his third touchdown of the season, and he continues to get a few touches a game in this high-powered offense. He got three carries in addition to his red zone look in the passing game.

2009 Week 6 vs NYG (1 / 2 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

2005 Week 10 vs MIA (17 / 84 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)

Released three weeks ago by the Miami Dolphins, the fullback Evans took out his frustration on his opponent by eclipsing his previous season high over his four-year career in this game. Evans ran with good power, and showed unexpected quickness for a fullback six feet in height and weighing 250 pounds. Evans went to school at Auburn, where he closed out his college career primarily as a blocker for Rudi Johnson, and has not seen a spotlight role in many years. His future role with the team may be dependent upon the status of Corey Dillon, or if the Patriots would like to return him to his natural fullback position.

2005 Week 11 vs NO (16 / 74 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Evans was the main ball carrier with Corey Dillon inactive. He ran the ball very hard, but failed to get in from a yard out on the Patriots' second drive before Brady threw to Vrabel in the end zone. Evans had a 20 yard run for a first down and followed it with a 15 yard reception. Evans gained several first downs and looked capable of carrying the ball should Dillon be out of action for a prolonged period. He caught both passes thrown his way.

2005 Week 12 vs KC (6 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

Evans was also called on during the game to try to get the Patriots' running game jump started. He was held to minimal yards on the ground but he was somewhat successful receiving the ball from Brady.

2005 Week 16 vs NYJ (6 / 16 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Evans entered the game in the final two drives, and ran a number of times to drain the clock. He didn't gain many yards with his attempt, as the Jets knew what was coming. He could be deactivated in future weeks.

2005 Week 17 vs MIA (6 / 7 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)

Evans gained one yard to make a successful fourth down conversion attempt. Near the end of the game, Evans turned a short catch into a 19 yard gain.
