Player Outlook

Until Elijah McGuire finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

Player News
  • McGuire has signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. The 26-year-old, who has spent time on the team's practice squad over the past two seasons, will provide Kansas City with backfield depth behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson. McGuire, a sixth-round draft pick in 2017, last saw regular season action with the Jets in 2018.

  • McGuire will sign with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. The Chiefs are making the move after rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and a strained hip in last week's win over the Saints. McGuire will add organizational depth in the backfield behind Le'Veon Bell, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson (illness). The fourth-year tailback hasn't suited up since 2018 when he rushed 92 times for 276 yards and three touchdowns and caught 19 receptions for 193 yards and a score.

  • McGuire will head to Kansas City for a visit with the Chiefs, Field Yates of ESPN reports. With the team concerned starting back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and a strained hip during Sunday's win over New Orleans, contingency plans are therefore needed at the position. McGuire offers experience with 591 rushing yards over 180 career carries for the Jets, but he hasn't played in a game in two years. Another former Jet, two-time All-Pro Le'Veon Bell, joined the team in October after being cut by New York, and his Week 15 outing of 76 scrimmage yards and a touchdown was possibly his strongest yet as a Chief.

  • McGuire reverted to the Dolphins' practice squad Monday and was later cut, per the NFL's official transaction log. McGuire got the call to suit up for Miami's Week 14 home test against the defending-champion Chiefs, though he ultimately did not see any action during the contest. Having made stops in Kansas City, Dallas and Miami within the past calendar year, the 26-year-old remains devoid of an NFL appearance since his time with the Jets in 2018.

  • McGuire was promoted to the Dolphins' active roster Saturday. Both Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida have been placed on the COVID-19 list, while Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Chiefs. As a result, McGuire could get an immediate opportunity after signing with the practice squad just a few days ago. DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird still figure to handle a bulk of the work. McGuire last played in 2018, when he suited up for the Jets and posted 276 yards and three touchdowns on 92 carries (3.0 yards per carry) and 193 yards and a score on 19 receptions.
