Jets RB Elijah McGuire (ankle, quadricep) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Last week, McGuire delivered to the tune of 71 total yards and a touchdown on 21 touches. This serves as a reminder that when we’re looking for production from strange places, just follow the volume. McGuire now has two straight games with 14.1 or more fantasy points and is primed for a third as the Packers limp into MetLife Stadium his week.

Scouting Report

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.
