RB - PHI
Week 8 Outlook
Former Lions fifth-round pick RB Jason Huntley out of New Mexico State was claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huntley is a dynamic playmaker who will become the fourth RB to start the season on the Eagles roster alongside Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Corey Clement. He could be used as a return man as well for Philadelphia.
Fifth-round pick RB Jason Huntley has agreed to terms on a rookie deal with the Detroit Lions.
Huntley is expected to compete with Ty Johnson for a spot behind second-round pick D’Andre Swift and incumbent starter Kerryon Johnson. He’s unlikely to see the field very much in 2020, but he’s got some appeal in deep dynasty leagues.
The Detroit Lions have selected running back Jason Huntley with the No. 172 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Huntley is a smaller, quicker back who will likely be used as a change-of-pace back and a target in the passing game. The Lions already added running back D'Andre Swift in the second round and still have incumbent starter Kerryon Johnson the roster, so it's not clear how big of a role Huntley will have in his first year.
