Eli McGuire likely to be activated Saturday from IR. He’s “trending toward playing,” per Todd Bowles. In Bowles-speak, that means he’s playing.
Odds are McGuire will take over the third-down role and could even push Isaiah Crowell for early-down touches. Until we know what his role will actually be, he isn't startable, as he falls into RB5 territory in our Week 9 rankings.
