From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 25): McGuire could inherit a bigger role in the Jets backfield while Matt Forte is nursing a toe injury. He would be second fiddle to Bilal Powell, who hasn't been the most durable during his career, so McGuire's path to value is becoming clearer.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs OAK (6 / 29 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

The rookie running back was regularly mixed in with Forte and Powell--and was given more touches than Powell. McGuire gained most of his yardage when the game was out of reach. In the second quarter, McGuire lined up as the running back on a key fourth down--and was stuffed. However, New York was penalized with a false start, negating the run.

Jets | NYJ will use three running backs (Thu Sep 21, 02:16 PM) - New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire will all receive playing time against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Our View: As if this mess wasn't already nearly fantasy useless, this should kill whatever meager value it had. Too many mouths and not enough bread—nobody is likely to get enough carries to be worth a start anytime soon barring injury.
