  Lions | Detroit works out running backs    Tue Oct 2, 02:56 PM

Free-agent RBs Charles Sims, Terrance West and Fitzgerald Toussaint worked out for the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

Footballguys view: The Lions are just updating their emergency list here. Rookie Kerryon Johnson should continue as their lead back and hopefully he gets more work than he did in Week 4 (only nine carries in a loss to the Cowboys).

  Steelers | Fitzgerald Toussaint facing uphill battle    Sat Jul 7, 12:19 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Fitzgerald Toussaint will have a hard time making the 53-man roster because of the addition of RB Jaylen Samuels this offseason, in the opinion of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Joe Rutter.

Footballguys view: At the end of the day, Samuels is simply capable of more. Toussaint isn't a special teams ace either, which just makes it harder for him to remain on the team. Toussaint is probably fighting with James Conner and Stevan Ridley for a spot.

  Steelers | Terrell Watson let go    Sat Nov 25, 12:19 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Terrell Watson was released Saturday, Nov. 25. RB Fitzgerald Toussaint was activated from the Reserve/Injured list in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Watson is a big back that doesn't run with the assumed power, and he's had trouble hanging onto the rock. Speaking of fumbling, Toussaint has a history with that as well but he's a better back overall. Toussaint will compete with rookie James Conner to get some reserve snaps behind superstar starter LeVeon Bell.

  Steelers | Several signed to Pittsburgh practice squad    Sun Sep 3, 05:44 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint, WR Marcus Tucker, WR Justin Thomas and TE Jake McGee to their practice squad Sunday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Toussaint has gotten some work in important games with the team in the past and if Le'Veon Bell goes down, he's a prime call-up candidate. The backup running back situation could get much more complicated than it was in previous years.

  Steelers | Fitzgerald Toussaint atop depth chart    Tue Aug 8, 11:49 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Fitzgerald Toussaint is listed as the first-team running back with RB Le'Veon Bell not in camp.

Footballguys view: James Conner was not listed because he is nursing a shoulder injury. If Conner can get healthy soon, he should be able to push Toussaint to be the backup to Bell, a very valuable fantasy spot.

  Steelers | Fitzgerald Toussaint re-signs    Tue Jan 31, 11:44 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Fitzgerald Toussaint was re-signed to a one-year exclusive rights contract Tuesday, Jan. 31, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: The Steelers have some decisions to make at running back with LeVeon Bell and DeAngelo Williams both entering free agency. Karlos Williams only has one game left to serve on his suspension, so he could be battling Toussaint for the backup role, or even more if Bell is allowed to walk.

  Steelers | Fitzgerald Toussaint to see solid work    Sat Dec 31, 12:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Fitzgerald Toussaint is expected to receive a solid amount of playing time against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17. RB DeAngelo Williams is also expected to receive carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to proceed with caution here. If Williams got most of the work against the Browns, he could post RB1 numbers....but he's not going to get that workload. If Toussaint gets most of the work against the Browns, we'd trust him more as a flex player...but it sounds like Williams will cut into his workload. This is yet another reason why Week 17 championships are bunk.

  Steelers | DeAngelo Williams not expected to play    Fri Jan 8, 12:05 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) isn't planning to play in the wild-card game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Jan. 9, but the Steelers haven't officially ruled him out, according to a source. Williams' status will be updated after practice Friday, Jan. 8. It was reported earlier Friday that the Steelers considered Williams to be out. Williams has been seen wearing a walking boot, but he's been walking without a limp.

Footballguys view: Offensive coordinator Todd Haley said RB Fitzgerald Toussaint will be 'the guy' this weekend unless Williams can play. RB Jordan Todman would also be heavily involved.

  Steelers | Fitzgerald Toussaint prepared to start    Thu Jan 7, 12:38 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Fitzgerald Toussaint is preparing as if he'll start in the wild-card game this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals with RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) still in a walking boot. Toussaint had 18 carries for just 42 yards in the regular season, but his teammates have confidence that he can get the job done if Williams can't play. 'I take pride in my work ethic,' said Toussaint. 'I go out there every day and put it all on the line. I will be ready if my number is called. I hope DeAngelo is good, but I have to be ready to take on that task.'

Footballguys view: Toussaint is an interesting player, and even if he splits time with Jordan Todman he should get most of the carries. Keep it locked here in case DeAngelo Williams is a 'go' and given that this is a late game, if you can't swap a player out after the early Saturday kicks off, you might want a safer choice. We have him as a low-end RB1 but the expected gap between him and guys like Charcandrick West or Adrian Peterson is big.

  Steelers | Trio of backs could be used to fill in    Tue Jan 5, 12:57 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers intend to use RBs Fitzgerald Toussaint, Jordan Todman and FB Will Johnson to fill the void in the AFC Wild Card Game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Jan. 9, if RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is not available.

Footballguys view: Those who play fantasy football in the playoffs should not be relying on any of these backs. Toussaint filled in last week after Williams went down, but he could only muster 24 yards on 12 carries. Todman might be the most intriguing because of his speed, but he's been inactive the last four weeks. On the season, Todman only has four carries for 22 yards. Avoid this situation if you can.

  Ravens | Make several roster moves    Sat Sep 5, 03:52 PM

Baltimore Ravens RBs Terrence Magee and Fitzgerald Toussaint, TE Konrad Reuland and QB Bryn Renner were released Saturday, Sept. 5.

Footballguys view: Magee is a player we'd like to see stick on the team's practice squad. He's got good explosion and can make defenders miss in tight quarters.
