Don't sleep on McGuire having an outside chance at winning the starting role outright for the Jets. As it looks now, Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell are probably ahead of him, but the job is open for competition and we've heard enough good things about McGuire that the possibility of him becoming fantasy relevant is quite realistic.

Elijah McGuire impressing in camp

ESPN reporter Rich Cimini is reports that Jets running back coach Stumpy Mitchell has continually praised second-year running back Elijah McGuire, comparing him to LaDanian Tomlinson and saying, "he can do it all."

Fantasy Impact

While we have to remember that it's a running back coach that's saying this, it's a lofty comparison for the sophomore who netted 105 touches last year, and that was with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell in front of him on the depth chart. Forte did retire, but the Jets didn't sit tight in free agency, signing both Isaiah Crowell and Thomas Rawls. Those moves don't scream confidence in McGuire, but it's good to see him impressing in camp. It's no secret that the Jets don't want Powell in a workhorse role and we know that Crowell isn't anything special, so it's possible that McGuire makes a bigger impact than most are expecting. He would need to be a starter in the preseason to have any sort of redraft appeal.
