Jets place RB Eli McGuire on IR

NJ.com - [Full Article]

The Jets put Eli McGuire on injured reserve.

Related players: Bilal Powell, Isaiah Crowell

Fantasy Impact:

McGuire broke his foot on the first day of training camp and required surgery to repair the damage. Initially, it appeared as though he'd return somewhere around the start of the season, but Todd Bowles said last week that his timetable remained unclear. The Jets must think he's not close to being ready so he'll miss the first six games of the season leaving a bulk of the RB duty to fall with Crowell and Powell.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Cleveland Browns

Bilal Powell only carried the ball five times for six yards last week, but blame that on the game situation as the Jets abandoned the running game when they got down early. He did make up for it with five receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown catch, though.

The Jets will face a defense that has been average against the run early in the season. The Browns are 15th in aFPA to running backs. Powell has the same problem he will have every week. He is splitting time with Isaiah Crowell.

Start Powell as an RB3 or flex for Week 3, although, he does rank a little higher in PPR leagues.
