  Colts | Cut two    Tue Feb 18, 04:41 PM

The Indianapolis Colts waived DE Jake McDonough and released RB Tashard Choice Tuesday, Feb. 18.

Footballguys view: Choice has bounced around the NFL during his pro career. He may latch on during camp with some team, but making the final roster would be a question mark.

  Colts | Two moves made    Mon Dec 9, 09:50 AM

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent RB Tashard Choice (Bills) and placed RB Chris Rainey (ankle) on Injured Reserve.

Footballguys view: Choice is just veteran depth behind Donald Brown and Trent Richardson. His fantasy value is low, even in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Bills | Tashard Choice cut    Wed Dec 4, 09:48 AM

The Buffalo Bills waived RB Tashard Choice.

Footballguys view: The team wouldn't do this if they didn't feel comfortable about the health status of the running backs ahead of him on the depth chart. C.J. Spiller looked to be at full strength last week, and fantasy owners can trust him as a RB2 with upside in Week 14.

  Bills | C.J. Spiller has nice game    Fri Oct 4, 01:44 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) rushed eight times for 66 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Oct. 3. However, the bulk of his production came on his 54-yard touchdown scamper in the third quarter. Spiller didn't have a single pass thrown his way.

Footballguys view: Spiller clearly looked limited by his injury on the run, but he displayed the vision and initial burst to find and hit the lane for the score. His outlook took a hit when EJ Manuel went down, but Spiller reminded everyone why it is so hard to bench him in any given week.

  Bills | C.J. Spiller has limp    Tue Oct 1, 07:08 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) will be a game-time decision in the team's Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Oct. 3, and he was walking with a heavy limp in the locker room Tuesday, Oct. 1, despite saying there is 'not much swelling' in his ankle. 'It felt good. To be honest, I didn't think I would be able to jog today. So that was an encouraging sign,' Spiller said. 'Tomorrow will be a huge day for us, to see what the reaction will be.' RB Tashard Choice is expected to see more carries, and the team is even considering signing RB Ronnie Wingo off the practice squad for the game.

Footballguys view: Spiller could be a game time decision for Thursday night against the Browns. We'd be looking for other options if you were planning on starting Spiller.

  Bills | Fred Jackson has better chance to play    Tue Oct 1, 05:41 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone is confident that RB Fred Jackson (knee) will be able to play in the team's Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Oct. 4. RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) could be a game-time decision.

Footballguys view: Jackson makes for a RB2 with upside on Thursday Night Football against the Browns. His upside will be a little higher if Spiller does not play.

  Bills | C.J. Spiller to play Week 5    Mon Sep 30, 03:31 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) will be able to play Week 5 even though he suffered a sprained ankle in the team's Week 4 game.

Footballguys view: Spiller isn't at full strength, so we should continue to see more from Fred Jackson. Both are RB2 plays with upside moving forward.

  Bills | Three in running for No. 3 RB job    Fri Aug 30, 03:52 PM

Buffalo Bills RBs Kendall Gaskins, Zachary Brown and Tashard Choice are all candidates to be the team's No. 3 running back. The team may try to sign Gaskins or Brown to their practice squad if they do not get the job.

Footballguys view: This shows you how far Tashard Choice has fallen five years after having great success against the Steelers and Ravens defenses late in the 2008 season.

  Bills | Two RBs banged up    Wed Jul 31, 01:13 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday, July 31, that RBs Zachary Brown (ankle) and Tashard Choice (ankle) were shaken up in practice. Brown will be examined by team doctors.

Footballguys view: Choice and Brown are competing for the RB3 spot behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. Neither are overly exciting prospects if they received bigger roles due to injury. We like other backup RBs much better than these two.

Buffalo Bills RB Tashard Choice, WR Marquise Goodwin, WR T.J. Graham and WR Brad Smith have been returning kicks during organized team activities. CB Leodis McKelvin (groin) is also expected to be a candidate for the role but has been limited to individual drills because of offseason groin surgery.

  Bills | Chan Gailey has faith in Tashard Choice     Mon Sep 24, 01:15 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey would not discuss the likelihood of RB Fred Jackson (knee) playing in Week 4, although he is expected to practice later this week. Gailey said he is fine going with RB Tashard Choice if necessary. 'Tashard Choice is a pretty good back,' Gailey said. 'I have no qualms about running with him.'

Footballguys view: Gailey coached Choice back in college at Georgia Tech. Choice will be the lead back for the Bills while Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller recover from their injuries.

  Bills | Tashard Choice does well in relief    Sun Sep 23, 05:22 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Tashard Choice rushed for 91 yards on 20 carries in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. He entered the game when RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) was injured.

Footballguys view: Fred Jackson probably won't be back next week, but the Patriots defense is stout. Consider Choice a one-week (or more) flex play. At least he finally showed some of what made us so excited about him in his rookie year of 2008.

  Bills | Tashard Choice expected to have bigger role    Mon Sep 10, 03:48 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said RB Tashard Choice will receive a bigger role in the offense while RB Fred Jackson (knee) is out.

Footballguys view: Choice has a long history with Gailey dating back to their days together at Georgia Tech. He's a solid veteran backup and worth adding in deeper leagues while Jackson is out. Most feel Jackson's knee injury will keep him out over the next few weeks.

  Bills | Tashard Choice expected to be No. 3 RB    Thu Aug 30, 08:02 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Tashard Choice is expected to win the No. 3 running back job over RB Johnny White.

Footballguys view: Choice played under Chan Gailey in college at Georgia Tech and knows the system like the back of his hand. We like White's size and determined running style but it's not a good sign for his future if he can't beat out Choice.

  Bills | Two expected to compete for No. 3 RB job    Sun Mar 25, 05:05 PM

Buffalo Bills RBs Tashard Choice and Johnny White are expected to compete for the No. 3 running back job during training camp.

Footballguys view: We like White in this battle. Choice played under Chan Gailey in college at Georgia Tech but has not played up to his potential in years. White is a no-nonsense runner who reminds us of Bengals' RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

The Washington Redskins released RB Tashard Choice Tuesday, Nov. 22, and promoted RB Evan Royster from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

  Redskins | Reluctant to start Roy Helu    Tue Nov 22, 03:41 PM

The Washington Redskins have been reluctant to start RB Roy Helu Jr. over RB Ryan Torain, despite the fact that Torain has just 71 yards in the last six games, compared to Helu's 122. 'I like Helu. He's doing some great things,' head coach Mike Shanahan said. 'I don't want to put too much pressure on him too early. He's not ready for that. But he's gaining experience, and I like what I see.' Torain started in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys, but Helu and RB Tashard Choice saw plenty of work.

  Redskins | Tashard Choice may not play Week 11    Thu Nov 17, 05:12 PM

Washington Redskins offense coordinator Kyle Shanahan said RB Tashard Choice may not play in Week 11 because he still does not have a good grasp of the offense at this point.

Footballguys view: Choice is the most physically talented RB on the Redskins roster, but he's not going to see the field unless he knows the playbook better.

  Redskins | Unsure of Tashard Choice's role     Wed Nov 16, 10:09 AM

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said he is uncertain RB Tashard Choice (hamstring) will play in Week 11, even though Choice has declared himself ready. Shanahan also said he isn't sure exactly what kind of role Choice will play once he is cleared for action. 'You don't know about running backs or safeties until they play,' Shanahan said. 'People can tell you a running back is a good running back or a safety is a good safety, but at least in my experience, until they actually put the pads on and they do it in live situations, you don't know for sure.'

Footballguys view: Choice showed flashes of brilliance years ago, but has done next to nothing since then. Because of Mike Shanahan's propensity to throw fantasy owners a curve ball it wouldn't surprise us to see Choice inserted as the Redskins starter at some point this year.

  Redskins Tashard Choice ready for debut    Thu Nov 10, 01:18 AM

Washington Redskins RB Tashard Choice (hamstring) is hopeful of making his team debut in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins. 'He had a good practice today so that was a good sign,' head coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday, Nov. 9. 'I'm hoping he gets a good feel for our system this week and helps us on game day.'

Footballguys view: Choice could become the starting RB for the Redskins at any time the way the backfield has been handled this year, but it is questionable how much that role is worth in fantasy leagues right now.

  Redskins | Tashard Choice to help depth    Wed Nov 2, 04:12 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said the team added RB Tashard Choice (hamstring) to add depth to the position. Shanahan expects Choice to practice next week.

Footballguys view: Choice isn't going to play this week, but could see the field in week 10. We think he's the most talented runner on the Redskins roster. They have Ryan Torain and Roy Helu ahead of him on the depth chart, but it wouldn't surprise us to see him start at some point this year. With Mike Shanahan you just never know.

Washington Redskins RB Tashard Choice (hamstring) said he will not be available for Week 9 but may be able to play in Week 10.

Footballguys view: The Redskins will be a little short handed at the RB position against the 49ers on Sunday. Ryan Torain and Roy Helu will be given the bulk of the workload as runners and Helu especially as a receiver out of the backfield.
