Jets | Elijah McGuire involved in run, pass game

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:31:56 -0800

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 22 yards on eight carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10. He also caught four passes for 36 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: McGuire received more work against the Bucs with Matt Forte out and had a decent outing. He could see more playing time as the season goes on but is not a strong fantasy option at this point.

Jets | Elijah McGuire struggles again

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 22:44:59 -0700

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire gained 30 yards on 13 carries (2.3 yards per carry) in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills. McGuire had one reception for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: In his last five games, McGuire has averaged 1.8, 2.2, 2.3, 2.0 and 2.3 yards per carry, respectively. That's Trent Richardson territory. With Bilal Powell and Matt Forte both producing it's unclear how long the team will continue to invest touches on McGuire, who did enjoy some success earlier this season. Whatever Todd Bowles decides, you should keep McGuire away from your lineup.

Jets | Elijah McGuire has disappointing game

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:07:05 -0700

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 22 yards on 10 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: McGuire received most of his work in the running game and was only able to rush for 22 yards. He should still have a role moving forward, but owners may want to consider keeping on the bench next week.

Jets | Elijah McGuire not a big factor

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 13:06:10 -0700

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 20 yards on 11 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5. He also caught two passes for 10 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: McGuire did not do a lot in this game but may be the team's starting running back in Week 5 if Bilal Powell and Matt Forte are sidelined. He can be considered at least a flex option against the New England Patriots next week if he starts.

Jets | Elijah McGuire involved in run, pass game

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 14:50:28 -0700

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 93 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4. He also caught two passes for 38 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: McGuire was added to the committee at running back a few weeks ago and was a big factor for the Jets this week. He should have a similar role next week against the Cleveland Browns and could be a flex option in most leagues.

Jets | NYJ will use three running backs

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 11:16:42 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Powell entered the season as the starting running back, but Forte leads the team in rushing yards with 69 yards. Powell and Forte can still be flex options in point-per-reception leagues because of their pass-catching abilities. Owners can avoid McGuire for the time being.

Jets | Matt Forte on the bubble?

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 14:44:36 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte is believed to be on the final roster bubble, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Cimini cites Forte's age and the presence of RB Bilal Powell and rookie RB Elijah McGuire as the main reasons for Forte's potential departure.

Fantasy Tip: It was recently reported that Forte was being shopped, so the fact that he may be cut shouldn't come as a huge surprise. This is Powell's backfield and McGuire has already shown he can be a promising backup. For now, view Forte as no more than a flex. He could still be picked up by another team if released.

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 15:28:00 -0700

New York Jets WR Frankie Hammond Jr. appears to be the leading candidate for the punt returner job at this point, but RB Elijah McGuire could win the job if he performs well during training camp.

Jets | Elijah McGuire will have a role

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 07:38:06 -0700

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire will have a role with the team this season, according to running backs coach Stump Mitchell. "I like everything (about him)," Mitchell said. "He's got great hands. As a third-down back or simply a back, he can catch the ball extremely well. He has good vision, and a good ability to make cuts. I like him. He's a student of the game and good in the classroom."
