From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 12): McGuire is in a committee and going into his bye, but he has some emergency play value with his number of touches including catches and fresh second-half legs after being on injured reserve for the first half of the season.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 10 vs BUF (6 / 30 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

While the box score isn't sexy, McGuire has looked much better than anyone else in the backfield. That was true this past Sunday as well, though he lost out on a touchdown with Isaiah Crowell taking the short yardage plunge. Still, he showed some decent speed, vision and even some toughness on his handful of runs and did a nice job catching the ball as well.

2018 Week 9 vs MIA (7 / 30 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)

It was McGuire's first day back in action after a preseason injury, but given the way things went he would probably rather be back on the PUP list. McGuire did seem to have a little more success running the ball than Isaiah Crowell did, and he was much more involved in the pass game. He showed some elusiveness in space, with a sharp 20-yard catch and run near the end of the first half, helping to set the Jets up for a field goal.
