  Chiefs | Kansas City signs nine to futures deals    Tue Feb 4, 06:21 PM

Free-agent QB Kyle Shurmur (Chiefs), WR Jody Fortson (Chiefs), TE Nick Keizer (Chiefs), LB Emmanuel Smith (Chiefs), DT Braxton Hoyett (Chiefs), RB Elijah McGuire (Chiefs), DT Devaroe Lawrence (Browns), CB Chris Lammons (Dolphins) and RB Mike Weber (Chiefs) signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday, Feb. 4. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We'll keep an eye on Weber and McGuire in super deep dynasty formats. Weber was a seventh-round pick out of Ohio State for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2019 NFL draft. A knee injury suffered in May slowed him down and he didn't make the 53-man roster out of training camp. McGuire is a fine all-purpose runner who can shine as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He was a sixth-round pick for the Jets when he came out of Louisiana in 2017.

  Patriots | Elijah McGuire visits New England    Fri Oct 25, 09:20 PM

Free-agent RB Elijah McGuire (Browns) worked out for the New England Patriots Friday, Oct. 25.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are just updating their emergency list here, although we could see a back like McGuire thriving with an offense like the Patriots. He's a decent all-around back who can excel as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Only Fantasy GMs in crazy deep dynasty formats should be monitoring his status.

  Browns | Elijah McGuire let go    Wed Oct 23, 12:17 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Elijah McGuire was released from the practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Browns try to keep McGuire around on the practice squad. He's a good change-of-pace back but has now failed to impress with the Jets and the Browns.

  Browns | Elijah McGuire signed to active roster    Mon Sep 16, 09:27 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Elijah McGuire was signed to the 53-man roster Monday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a good change-of-pace back who can thrive as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. With Dontrell Hilliard in the concussion protocol, the Browns needed more depth at the running back position.

  Browns | Elijah McGuire to CLE    Mon Sep 2, 11:37 AM

Free-agent RB Elijah McGuire (Jets) and OT Paul Adams (Giants) signed with the Cleveland Browns practice squad Monday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a good all-purpose back who can thrive as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He's looked good in regular season action with the Jets, and we're certain he would look good if the Browns were promoting him to the active roster.

  Jets | Elijah McGire busy in finale    Thu Aug 29, 09:48 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed 14 times for 29 yards and caught all five of his targets for 35 yards in a 6-0 preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: McGuire is trying to beat out Trenton Cannon for a roster spot. His receiving prowess is his best asset, but it's not as important with Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell on the roster. His bubble popped after the game and he was released.

  Jets | De'Angelo Henderson pushing for time    Wed Jul 10, 10:48 PM

New York Jets RB De'Angelo Henderson worked ahead of RB Trenton Cannon during OTAs and began to share reps with RB Elijah McGuire.

Footballguys view: Henderson has a low center of gravity and can run inside better than some think. We'll see if he can beat out Cannon for perhaps the final spot in the RB depth chart. The Jets are stacked at the position with Le'Veon Bell, Eli McGuire, Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell (in addition to Henderson and Cannon). We'll see this pecking order behind Bell established in the preseason.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire bumped down the charts?    Thu Apr 11, 10:46 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire will likely be the third-string running back following the signing of RB Ty Montgomery, according to Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record.

Footballguys view: Yeah, it's a weird signing for the Jets as they already have McGuire (and Trenton Cannon) on the roster. The starter is Le'Veon Bell, and he's a great three-down back. When he needs a breather, Montgomery might be that next back up.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire may be top backup    Wed Feb 6, 07:41 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire likely will be the No. 2 running back for the Jets next season.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire made most of injury    Fri Jan 25, 09:51 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire said he used the time he missed with a foot injury at the start of the 2018 season to log 'mental reps' in the film room, which helped him become a better blocker and better understand what opposing defenses are trying to do.

Footballguys view: McGuire only played in eight games this year due to the foot injury. He made plays at the end of the season, scoring four TDs in the last four weeks of the regular season. He's a talented back but might be best served working in a RBBC. That's why we think the Jets will be in the market for running back help either in free agency or the 2019 NFL draft.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire rushes for 41 yards    Sun Dec 30, 04:17 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 41 yards on 18 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 17. He also caught two passes for 24 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: McGuire was productive the last two weeks, but languished with the Jets offense this week. He didn't do much to stake a claim to the starting running back job in the future. The Jets should be players in the LeVeon Bell sweepstakes this offseason.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire riding hot streak    Tue Dec 25, 05:43 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire has scored four touchdowns and averaged 79.6 total yards over the last three weeks while catching three passes in each contest.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a talented all-purpose back who can do damage as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy GMs still playing in Week 17 can consider him as a RB2 with upside in PPR formats.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire scores twice    Sun Dec 23, 09:35 PM

  Jets | Elijah McGuire takes part in practice    Wed Dec 19, 06:28 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (ankle, quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Footballguys view: McGuire should once again be the lead back for the Jets in Week 16. That's worth RB2 or flex status for Fantasy GMs as the Jets are at home playing the Packers.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire finds end zone    Sat Dec 15, 08:22 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire managed 21 touches for 71 yards and a touchdown in a loss versus the Houston Texans Saturday, Dec. 15.

Footballguys view: McGuire was competent, but not much more. His team pushed him into the end zone for his one score. He'll be a flex play against the Packers next week.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire should play in Week 15    Thu Dec 13, 05:59 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Footballguys view: McGuire should be the lead back for the Jets on Saturday with Isaiah Crowell banged up. It's a tough matchup against the Texans run defense, but McGuire has enough ability as a receiving back to have RB2/flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in Week 15.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire absent Tuesday    Tue Dec 11, 03:43 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (ankle) missed practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Isaiah Crowell is banged up right now with a foot injury. If he doesn't play against the Texans on Saturday, the team would turn to McGuire as the starter...if he's healthy. Trenton Cannon is the backup behind McGuire. Check back to see if he can practice later in the week.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire reaches end zone    Sun Dec 9, 05:30 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 60 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. He also caught three passes for 23 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: McGuire relieved an injured Isaiah Crowell and was able to put together a solid game despite being stopped for short or no gain on most of his runs. He'll be a what the heck flex against the Jets next week if Crowell can't go.

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

Footballguys view: The Jets are playing against the Patriots in Week 12. McGuire could get plenty of work as a receiving option out of the backfield this week. That makes him a deep flex option for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire activated    Sat Nov 3, 01:16 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) was officially activated from the Reserve/Injured list on Friday, Nov. 2.

Footballguys view: We're interested in seeing what McGuire could do for the Jets as a satellite or change-of-pace back. Dynasty owners should be all over him due to his explosive skill set. When healthy and involved in the offense, there is flex appeal for McGuire. Stash him if you can and take a wait-and-see approach for the rest of the season.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire trending in right direction    Fri Nov 2, 01:56 PM

  Jets | Elijah McGuire likely to return    Thu Nov 1, 09:26 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) will likely be activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 3, for the Week 9 game against the Miami Dolphins, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Footballguys view: McGuire had some shining moments in limited action last year and the Jets had him tabbed for a role in the backfield before his preseason injury. He should get a chance to fill Bilal Powell's role.

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) and FS Rontez Miles (knee) will be eligible to participate in practice this week, but head coach Todd Bowles would not say if either will take part in practice. McGuire is currently on the Reserve/Injured list, while Miles is on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on McGuire if you play in a deep league with a large bench. He can make plays as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. McGuire will be eligible to return after Week 8 of the regular season.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire could land on short-term IR    Sun Aug 26, 03:24 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) has been ruled out for the regular-season opener and head coach Todd Bowles told reporters Sunday, Aug. 26, he would not rule out placing McGuire on the Reserve/Injured list to start the season.

Footballguys view: Well that's a wide range of possibilities. The Jets might have a roster spot crunch with some much youth and uncertainty on the roster, including carrying three quarterbacks, so that could spell injured reserve for McGuire. If McGuire does end up on injured reserve, that helps Bilal Powell's stock.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire injury update    Mon Jul 30, 12:53 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday, July 30, to repair the broken bone in his foot. He is expected to be sidelined for six weeks.

Footballguys view: His Week 1 is in question and it's possible the team could put him on injured reserve with a plan for him to return mid-season.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire to miss 3-6 weeks    Sun Jul 29, 10:46 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) will undergo surgery on his broken foot this week and is expected to miss three to six weeks, according to a source.

Footballguys view: McGuire might not end up on injured reserve after all. If this timetable is correct, George Atkinson was signed to be a camp body, not potentially fill part of McGuire's role for the 2018 season.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire not out for the year    Sat Jul 28, 06:55 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) does have a broken foot but the injury is not expected to end his season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's good news for McGuire if true. He suffered a foot injury that requires surgery and is clearly a candidate to begin the regular season on the Injured Reserve/Return list.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire to have surgery    Sat Jul 28, 04:05 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) suffered a fracture in his foot earlier this week and will need to undergo surgery, according to a source.

Footballguys view: He is expected to miss an extended period of time and could start the season on the Reserve/Injured list. McGuire's injury opens up more opportunity for Bilal Powell on passing downs.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire suffers injury    Fri Jul 27, 06:12 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) suffered a foot injury during practice Friday, July 27. The severity of the injury is not known at this time.

Footballguys view: McGuire was being hyped by some as an ascending player in this backfield, staking a claim to more of the third down and passing game work in his second year. Sixth round Trenton Cannon is showing good speed and agility early in camp and this could open the door for him to make the roster.
