Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe, out) missed practice again Thursday. Elijah McGuire (ankle) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. With Crowell out, it’s looking likely that McGuire serves as the RB1 against the Texans. It’s a bad matchup, but McGuire should see a sizable workload after turning 20 touches into 83 yards and a touchdown against the Bills last week. Houston has yielded just 40 rushing yards per game (on 2.65 YPC) to opposing running backs in the last four games, though they’ve given up an average 42 receiving yards to the position in the same span. McGuire is more than capable as a receiver—he has 11 catches for 90 yards in five games played, so he holds more value in PPR formats than in standard this week. Trenton Cannon (toe, questionable) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Week 14 at Buffalo Bills
Isaiah Crowell carried the ball 21 times for 98 yards last week against Tennessee. He had a season-high 25 touches and it was the first time all season he carried the ball 20+ times. The Jets will get back rookie QB Sam Darnold this week so you would think they want to continue to ride the running game.
Crowell had a poor game in Week 10 against Buffalo, who is 21st in aFPA to running backs in 2018. He only had carried the ball seven times for 19 yards and actually added 18 receiving yards as well. We expect a better outing this tie around as long as the Jets get Crowell the touches. Start him as a solid RB3 or flex for Week 14.
