He's the direct handcuff to Le'Veon Bell, which should carry some value considering Bell hasn't played football in over a year. The issue is that the Jets aren't a very high-scoring offense and have a shoddy offensive line, meaning he'd still be just a mediocre RB3 play even if Bell missed time.

Elijah McGuire ends 2018 season with weak performance

Elijah McGuire rushed 18 times for 41 yards and caught both of his targets for 24 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots. He fumbled once as well.

Fantasy Impact

With Bilal Powell heading to free agency and Isaiah Crowell's contract having little dead cap, it's possible (though unlikely) that McGuire returns as the lead back. Due to his inefficiency as a runner, it's more likely that he plays a satellite back role to Crowell, so McGuire should be expected to enter 2019 as the second back on the depth chart, pending any other offseason moves.
