    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.

    Huddle Up: McGuire was the feature back tonight with Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell out. The rushing average could have been better, but his 16.2 PPR points will do just fine. Keep tabs on Crowell's status for next week as it will obviously negatively impact McGuire's value.

  • Posted: 12/13/2018 2:59pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: McGuire is in line to start this week with Isaiah Crowell ruled out and likely will receive plenty of touches against the Houston Texans. Owners in most leagues can consider McGuire as a flex option this week.

  • Posted: 12/11/2018 12:43pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: McGuire broke out last week to the tune of 93 total yards and a touchdown. New York's backfield is hurting, though, and the upcoming workload is unclear at this point. If Isaiah Crowell is inactive and McGuire is able to play then McGuire must be viewed as a PPR RB2 candidate.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 2:30pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: McGuire may receive the start next week depending on the severity of Isaiah Crowell's injury. He should be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option next week if he receives a majority of the work at the position.

  • Posted: 11/23/2018 2:43pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: McGuire has posted decent numbers since returning to the lineup and will continue to be part of the running and passing game. He may not be a starting option this week, but owners should keep an eye on him over the next few weeks.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 12:28pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: McGuire has been involved in the running and passing game since returning from injury and should have a similar role this week. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start player for owners.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 2:40pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 30 yards on six carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10. He also caught three passes for 27 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: McGuire has had two similar performances since coming off the Reserve/Injured list and will continue to be involved in the running and passing game. He could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 11:18am ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) put in a full practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: McGuire stepped right into Bilal Powell's role a week ago, catching three passes and totaling 67 yards. He's a flex candidate in deeper PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 3:25pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: McGuire received 10 touches in his season debut last week and finished with 67 yards. He should continue to have a solid role in the offense and could be a possible flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 9:36pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire ran for 30 yards on seven carries and turned five targets into three catches for 37 yards in Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: On an otherwise miserable day for the offense, McGuire was one of the brighter spots. He immediately filled the Bilal Powell role in this offense and finished with a backfield-high 36 snaps per Pro Football Focus, 13 more than Isaiah Crowell. McGuire, who had not played all season due to a midsummer foot injury, showed impressive quickness and figures to see plenty of time moving forward as the Jets are sorely lacking weapons on offense. He should be a solid flex play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 10:16pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: It might be a little aggressive to plug McGuire into your lineup right away, but he'd be a nice grab and stash candidate as he's set to assume a sizable role and is fresh after not playing since July.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 10:56am ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) is 'trending toward playing' in Week 9, head coach Todd Bowles said Friday, Nov. 2, and a decision will be made this weekend.

    Huddle Up: The Jets are in need of RB help with Bilal Powell done for the season, and check to see if McGuire is activated off the Reserve/Injured list Saturday. If so, plug him in a what-the-heck flex option if needed.

  • Posted: 7/29/2018 7:46am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: It appears that McGuire could miss the first game or two of the regular season, but this injury likely ends his bid to be the third-down back. Expect Bilal Powell to see more work, especially at the beginning of the year, making him worthy of consideration as a flex option.

  • Posted: 7/28/2018 1:05pm ET

    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. He is expected to miss an extended period of time and could start the season on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: McGuire was expected to have a decent role this season but likely will be out multiple weeks because of the injury. Bilal Powell likely will receive more touches with McGuire out and could be a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 6/15/2018 7:16am ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire is expected to be the third-down back, in the opinion of beat writer Manish Mehta.

    Huddle Up: Add McGuire's name to your list of RB5 sleepers come draft day.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:56am ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (illness) is active for Week 16's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: McGuire will play despite not practicing at all during the week due to an illness. He will be splitting carries this afternoon with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell and is not a recommended fantasy option.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 7:35am ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (illness) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: McGuire was listed as questionable on the injury report and did not practice at all during the week. Assuming he is active for this game, he will be splitting carries with Bilal Powell and Matt Forte, so he is not a recommended fantasy option.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 3:09pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (illness) did not practice Friday, Dec. 22, and he is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: McGuire is a question mark for Sunday's game. If he is able to play he will split backfield touches with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. McGuire is a RB4 or flex fantasy option at best in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 4:34pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (illness) missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: It's only an illness, so there's still a good chance McGuire can make it back onto the practice field before the weekend. In any event, the sixth-round draft choice out of LSU is really someone that should be reserved for the deepest leagues, unless Matt Forte (knee) is unable to suit up, in which case McGuire merits a little more consideration for other formats.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 5:41pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: McGuire has a few days to recover from his illness and should be active for Week 16. He is coming off one of his better games of the season but will be facing a tough Los Angeles Chargers defense. He probably can stay on the bench in most fantasy leagues.
