Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Silent to close regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols did not log a stat in Week 17 against the Texans. He closed the regular season with 47 rushes for 204 yards and a touchdown to go along with 12 receptions for 55 yards.

McNichols worked as the backup to Derrick Henry for much of the season. He had flashes of production, highlighted by games with 51 and 49 rushing yards. However, due to Henry's dominance, McNichols was regularly relegated to little or no action on offense. McNichols remains under contract with the Titans through the end of the 2021 season, and will likely fight for the backup role once again.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Struggles with garbage time work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols carried the ball 11 times for nine yards in Week 14 against the Jaguars. He added one reception for one yard.

McNichols earned a season-high 11 rushes, though all but one of them came in the fourth quarter with the team up by multiple scores. He also wasn't particularly effective with the opportunity, as his highlight runs went for six and four yards. McNichols has emerged as the clear backup to Derrick Henry in the Titans' backfield.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Scores in garbage time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols rushed the ball two times for two yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Browns. He added three receptions for 15 yards.

McNichols didn't touch the ball until late in the fourth quarter with the Titans down 20 points. He helped move the ball down the field with receptions of four and eight yards, and ultimately capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run. McNichols remains the likeliest candidate to see the majority of work out of the backfield if Derrick Henry were to be sidelined.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Eight carries in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols carried the ball eight times for 20 yards in Week 12 against the Colts.

McNichols saw the relatively high workload as the Titans maintained a three-touchdown lead for the entire second half. While the game was competitive, Derrick Henry dominated the backfield and logged 17 carries in the first half. McNichols continues to share backup running back duties with D'Onta Foreman.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Gets work in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols carried the ball three times for 26 yards in Week 10 against the Colts. He added one reception for eight yards.

McNichols didn't record a touch until the fourth quarter, when he worked as the primary back with the Titans down 34-17. He was productive with his limited opportunity, ripping off a run of 16 yards to get Tennessee into Colts territory. Despite the limited work, McNichols logged 17 offensive snaps, second in the team's backfield behind Derrick Henry.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Role slips in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols carried the ball two times for 10 yards in Week 9 against the Bears.

McNichols was out-touched by D'Onta Foreman, though he still finished second in snaps among players out of the backfield. Both McNichols and Foreman could see their roles decrease when Darrynton Evans (hamstring) is able to be activated from injured reserve.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Shows burst in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols carried the ball four times for 49 yards in Week 8 against the Bengals.

McNichols continued to work as the backup to Derrick Henry, logging 22 offensive snaps. He broke off two long runs of 17 and 16 yards, providing some explosive efforts in relief of Henry. While McNichols won't see enough volume to be viable, he should continue to work as an effective change-of-pace back in Week 9 against Chicago.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Effective as change of pace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols rushed the ball five times for 51 yards in Week 6 against the Texans. He also added two receptions for 11 yards.

With Darrynton Evans (hamstring) on injured reserve, McNichols had the opportunity to work as the change of pace back for Derrick Henry. He was effective in the role, breaking free for gains of 20 and 10 yards to help keep the offense moving. Though he won't have any value without a forced absence for Henry, McNichols is the clear second-string running back in Tennessee for the time being.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Removed from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols (ribs) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans after practicing fully Friday, Terry McCormick of reports.

With Darrynton Evans (hamstring) on IR, McNichols is now slated to serve in a change-of-pace role behind top back Derrick Henry. It's a playing context that gives McNichols a modest degree of fantasy utility in deeper formats or for managers scrambling for a bye-week plug-in.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Upgrades to limited activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols (ribs) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

McNichols' ability to take a step forward from no activity on Wednesday's estimated practice report suggests he's trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against the Texans. Perhaps more importantly for McNichols' fantasy outlook, fellow running back Darrynton Evans (hamstring) landed on injured reserve Thursday, per Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site. With Evans now set to miss at least Tennessee's next three games, McNichols should be relatively unchallenged for the change-of-pace role behind bell cow Derrick Henry in the short term.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Tagged as DNP on practice estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report due to a rib injury, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

McNichols didn't show any signs of injury during Tuesday's win over the Bills; in fact, he saw ample use during Tennessee's final drive, carrying four times for eight yards. If McNichols is able to shake off this injury before Sunday's game against the Texans arrives, he could handle the change-of-pace role behind starter Derrick Henry. The Titans' normal No. 2 back, Darrynton Evans, (hamstring) was also listed as a non-participant Wednesday and may have a tough time gaining clearance for the Week 6 game.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Logs 10 touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols rushed the ball nine times for 28 yards in Week 5 against the Bills. He also added one reception for three yards.

McNichols got the opportunity to work as the Titans' change-of-pace back after Darrynton Evans exited the contest early with a hamstring injury. He didn't do all that much with that opportunity, as he averaged only 3.1 yards per carry, with his longest rush of the day going to seven yards. Depending on the severity of Evans' injury, McNichols could be the running back to keep an eye on should Derrick Henry miss any game action.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Elevated from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans promoted McNichols from their practice squad Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Tennessee has called up McNichols from the practice squad both of the past two weeks, with the fourth-year back handling a limited role behind starter Derrick Henry in wins over the Broncos and Jaguars. The Titans' decision to bring him back ahead of Sunday's game in Minnesota implies some level of concern about the status of rookie Darrynton Evans, who has yet to make his NFL debut due to a hamstring injury. Once healthy, Evans is expected to replace McNichols as Tennessee's top change-of-pace back.

Jeremy McNichols: Back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols reverted back to the Titans' practice squad Monday, according to the league's official transaction report.

With Darrynton Evans (hamstring) ruled out of Sunday's contest, the Titans added McNichols to the active roster to give them a little more depth in the backfield. He only ended up playing 11 of 62 offensive snaps but could be called upon again if Evans should miss more time.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Jumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Rookie third-rounder Darrynton Evans (hamstring) has been ruled out for a second straight game, so McNichols was brought back up. McNichols logged 13 snaps in the season opener but couldn't reel in his only target, and a similar role should be expected in Week 2 versus the Jaguars.

Jeremy McNichols: Bounces back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols has reverted to the Titans' practice squad, per the NFL's official transaction report.

McNichols suited up in the Titans' season opener and logged 13 offensive snaps, but he couldn't haul in his lone target. The Boise State product could be called back up if rookie Darrynton Evans (hamstring) can't go in Week 2's game versus Jacksonville.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols was promoted from the Titans' practice squad to the active roster Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

The 24-year-old was added to the practice squad after failing to make Tennessee's season-opening roster, but he'll serve as an extra player ahead of Monday's matchup with Denver. McNichols will provide depth at running back with No. 2 option Darrynton Evans (hamstring) unavailable Week 1, and he'll revert back to the practice squad after the contest.

Jeremy McNichols: Joins Titans' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans signed McNichols to the practice squad Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

McNichols didn't make Tennessee's initial regular-season roster, but he'll stick around as an emergency option on the practice squad. To begin the 2020 season, the Titans' only backups to Derrick Henry are Darrynton Evans (undisclosed) and Senorise Perry.

Jeremy McNichols: Waived shortly after signing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNichols was waived by the Titans on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

This transaction should more or less confirm Darrynton Evans' availability to start Week 1, as the rookie third-round pick had missed a number of practices the last couple of weeks due to an undisclosed injury. McNichols has seen stints with every AFC South team except the Texans over the last two years.

Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Heading to Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans signed McNichols on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Tennessee's backfield depth chart looks nebulous behind uncontested No. 1 option Derrick Henry, so McNichols could immediately figure into the competition at training camp. Of course, McNichols has only logged two career carries since joining the league in 2017, so he's unlikely to factor in as more than a reserve option.
