The Bills released RB Leonard Fournette from the practice squad. He was not elevated for the Wild Card win over the Steelers, so the news isn't a big surprise. Buffalo will continue to roll with RBs James Cook, Ty Johnson, and Latavius Murray. The 29-year-old Fournette's NFL career is on the ropes.

Bills RB Ty Johnson sustained a concussion in Sunday night's game vs. the Dolphins. He's out for the rest of this one and is in danger of missing next weekend's Wild Card game. We'll track Johnson's progress through the protocol.

Bills RB Ty Johnson (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Chargers. RB Leonard Fournette is making his Buffalo debut in this one, joining James Cook and Latavius Murray in the backfield. Cook remains a strong fantasy play. Fournette and Murray are only options on the Saturday DFS slate.

Bills RB Leonard Fournette will make his 2023 debut tonight against the Chargers. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo expects the veteran to get “some run” behind James Cook. Of course, Cook is coming off a career-best game vs. Dallas, so any work Fournette takes is likely to come from Latavius Murray or Ty Johnson. Ultimately, we’re not expecting Fournette to turn into a fantasy asset down the stretch.

Bills RB James Cook logged a season-high 22 touches in Sunday's loss to the Eagles: 16 carries and a season-high 6 receptions. It marked the third time this season he has reached 20 touches and the second such game in a row. So does that mean his role is growing? No. Cook's carry and opportunity shares have not increased the past two weeks, following the team's OC switch. In fact, Cook's 51.6% share of RB carries against Philly was his second-smallest of the season. His 53.5% opportunity share (carries + targets) was his fourth-lowest. Cook benefited in each case from high team play volume. The Bills ran a season-high 92 plays at Philadelphia and 76 in the Week 11 win over the Jets, their third-most plays of the year. Buffalo RBs, though, have also seen a boost in target share over the past two games. A 21.9% share against the Jets was the highest since the season opener -- until Sunday's 23.5% share. If that continues, Cook's fantasy numbers would certainly benefit. He has caught four passes in two straight games after reaching that number just twice through the first 10 weeks. Buffalo now heads into a Week 13 bye. Then come matchups with the Chiefs and Cowboys that should support RB targets, because each ranks among the league's toughest WR defenses. Then comes Cook's best remaining matchup (Chargers) and a Week 17 rematch with New England. The Patriots afforded him 102 total yards and a TD at 6.4 yards per touch in their first meeting. Cook should be a solid PPR contributor the rest of the way. He won't be a lock for strong touch counts, though. Latavius Murray actually played 1 more snap vs. Philly, ran six more routes, and trailed Cook by just 1 target. Ty Johnson has also worked in for 6 touches each of the past two weeks. Leonard Fournette, meanwhile, has yet to be called up from the practice squad a month after signing.

Jets HC Robert Saleh labeled RB Zonovan Knight questionable but "arrow up" for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Knight missed some time in yesterday's loss to the Lions with an ankle injury but eventually returned. We'll keep a close eye on his status over the next couple of days. If Knight can't play on Thursday, we'd likely see RB Michael Carter lead a committee alongside Ty Johnson and James Robinson.

Jets RB James Robinson is again a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Lions. RB Ty Johnson is active but didn't play a single offensive snap last week. RBs Zonovan Knight and Michael Carter figure to handle most, if not all, of the backfield work today.

Jets RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bills. RB Michael Carter is back and will join Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson in New York's backfield.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is not listed on the Week 14 injury report. So he'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Bills -- and should be at least close to 100%. The question now becomes how touches will be divvied in this backfield. HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday that RB Zonovan Knight is "not going anywhere," so expect him to remain significantly involved. RBs Ty Johnson and/or James Robinson also might continue to mix in. It's a messy situation and a tough matchup this weekend.

Jets RB Zonovan Knight handled 15 of the Jets' 20 RB carries in Sunday's loss at Minnesota. He ran for 90 yards (6.0 per rush), with more than half of that coming on a 48-yard scamper. Knight added 5 catches for 28 yards on 5 targets. RB Ty Johnson beat him in targets, catching 6 of 7 for 38 yards. James Robinson ranked 2nd in carries, with 4, gaining just 10 yards. HC Robert Saleh said the team planned a committee approach, but Knight operated as the clear leader in Michael Carter's absence (ankle sprain). We'll see about Carter's status for next Sunday's trip to Buffalo.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Vikings. RBs Zonovan Knight, Ty Johnson and James Robinson are active. We’re expecting Knight to lead the 3-man committee, making him a decent RB3 or flex play.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. He didn’t practice all week and should obviously be on fantasy benches. Carter’s absence would leave New York’s backfield to Zonovan Knight, James Robinson and Ty Johnson. Knight would be the best bet for touches and a viable RB3 or flex play in fantasy.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Vikings this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He reportedly has a low-ankle sprain that isn't considered serious, but Carter is certainly in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. His absence would leave rookie Zonovan Knight as New York's likely lead back, with Ty Johnson and James Robinson behind him.

Jets RB Michael Carter suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bears and is officially doubtful to return. With RB James Robinson scratched, New York is down to RBs Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson.

Jets RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bears. RBs Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight are dressed for New York. Robinson's absence is a slight boost to Carter's Week 12 fantasy stock.

Jets RB Michael Carter got the bulk of the backfield snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, the 1st game since Breece Hall's ACL tear. He played 1 more snap than the combined total for Ty Johnson and James Robinson. The carry counts made it look closer. Carter's 7 rushes (for 26 yards) led the group, with Robinson taking 5 (for 17) and Johnson 2 (for 6). Carter dominated receiving opportunities, tying for 2nd on the team with 7 targets. he caught 4 for 35 yards. Johnson (2) and Robinson (1) combined for no receptions on 3 targets. We're betting on Carter as the touch leader going forward, even if Robinson works into more playing time. We'd also bet on the backfield continuing to be unexciting. Week 9 brings a terrible matchup for everything on offense, with Buffalo coming to town.

In a game that likely saw rookie RB Breece Hall suffer an ACL tear, Jets RB Michael Carter gained just 29 yards on his team-leading 13 carries (2.2 per attempt). Carter did add 45 receiving yards on 2 receptions. Most of that came on a single 37-yard catch. Carter figures to lead the backfield going forward, with Ty Johnson the current #2. There are options available on the trade market, though, and we wouldn't be surprised to see the 5-2 Jets add someone there. Johnson carried 1 time for 3 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards in Sunday's win over Denver.
