Hilliard is out with a concussion, a hit to backfield depth for the Browns, the tweet added. McGuire could see some time behind Chubb Monday night, but Johnson could also play as well. McGuire was mostly a pass-catching, change of pace option with the Jets the past few years.
NYJ RB Elijah McGuire - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at New England Patriots
The Jets are determined to see what Elijah McGuire can do and so far the results have been acceptable. He now has touchdown runs in three straight games and is getting the bulk of the touches out of the backfield.
McGuire will get the start for the first time against New England who is ranked 18th in aFPA to running backs. We expect him to get 15-20 touches which gives him some value for Week 17. Start him as a solid RB2 in all leagues and formats.
