Elijah McGuire signed to Cleveland practice squad

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting that the Browns have signed Elijah McGuire to their practice squad.

Fantasy Impact

McGuire was cut by the Jets Saturday and will look to find his way to an active roster spot this season as a backup.

Elijah McGuire has been released by the Jets

Elijah McGuire has been released by the Jets. He started three games for them last season.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets only had one or two spots for running backs behind Le’Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery. He only averaged 2.6 yards per carry and 6.8 per reception this preseason. McGuire was a long shot to make the Jets over Bilal Powell and Trenton Cannon. He will try to latch onto another team, but his 3.3 YPC might not attract many other clubs.

Elijah McGuire decent in preseason loss

Elijah McGuire rushed five times for 21 yards and caught his only target for five yards in the Jets' preseason loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

McGuire would figure to have the best hold on a roster spot of the fringe candidates, given his tenure and performance late in 2018. However, with two others clearly ahead of him for playing time, his fantasy value is minimal.

Elijah McGuire quiet in preseason win

Elijah McGuire rushed five times for 14 yards and caught one of his two targets for 10 yards in the Jets' preseason win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

McGuire is fighting for the #3 RB job at this point, and perhaps a roster spot, though he likely has the inside track given his performance late last season. His appeal in fantasy football is fading into nothingness pretty quickly. He need not be drafted this season.

Elijah McGuire projects to miss the final cut

Jets beat writer Connor Hughes does not believe RB Elijah McGuire will make the final 53-ma roster.

Fantasy Impact

While McGuire flashed last season, he is in danger of being cut when it is all said and done. With Le'Veon Bell and Ty Mongomery locked in as the RB1 and RB2 -- can you guess which one is which? -- and Bilal Powell in the mix at RB3, the final running back spot will be up for grabs between McGuire and Trenton Cannon. However, since Cannon is a special teamer, he has an edge on McGuire. If McGuire is indeed cut, he should find a new home sooner rather than later.
