Elijah McGuire leads team in carries, rushes for 22 yards in loss

Elijah McGuire rushed for 22 yards on a team-high 10 carries during the Jets’ Week 6 home loss to the New England Patriots, including a long run of 12 yards.

Fantasy Impact

McGuire had more carries than Matt Forte in this game, but it was more of a product of game flow more than anything, as the Jets were playing from behind in the entire second half. Forte also logged some yards through the air, whereas McGuire did not register a single catch. With Bilal Powell out due to a calf injury, and Forte returning from his own injury, this outcome was easy to predict, as Forte got the start, has the better hands out of the backfield, and is the better pass-blocker. You’ll need to monitor Powell and Forte’s playing status going forward, as McGuire’s playing time hinges on either of them missing time. For now, keep McGuire on your bench until further notice.
