Elijah McGuire remains with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal

Per Jordan Schultz of ESPN, the Chiefs have re-signed RB Elijah McGuire to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

The exact details for the one-year deal McGuire and the Chiefs agreed to are still unknown. However, expect a rather inexpensive deal as McGuire, 26-years old, has primarily been a practice squad player for the Chiefs the last two years. McGuire will mainly be a depth piece for the Chiefs at RB, even after the release of Damien Williams, as they still have Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson.

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.
