Isaiah Crowell Fantasy Football News 2018

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Vikings. He was limited in Friday’s practice after sitting out the previous 2 days. HC Todd Bowles labeled Crowell a game-time decision on Friday. This is the same exact boat he was in last week before playing against the Colts. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but between the injury and a brutal matchup, Crowell isn’t a recommended Week 7 fantasy play.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He sat out the first 2 practices of last week before returning to a limited practice on Friday and playing Sunday -- although that was with an ankle injury. We'll see if Crowell is able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and is likely to be playing at far less than 100%. Crowell sits in RB3 territory in our Week 6 Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets expect RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) to play today against the Colts. Saturday reports had him as a game-time decision, so we'll certainly track his status when the inactives come out later Sunday morning. Crowell also missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited workout Friday. He'll make for a risky fantasy proposition this week. Bilal Powell looks like the safer option between Jets RBs if you're looking to use 1 this week.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Colts. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. HC Todd Bowles labeled him a "Sunday decision." We'll get Crowell's official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he'll obviously come with elevated risk if active. If Crowell sits out, Bilal Powell would turn into a feature back -- and a nice RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice, putting his availability for this weekend's game against the Colts in question. Crowell's absence would turn Bilal Powell into a feature back. We'll get another update on the situation tomorrow.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell missed Wednesday's practice and is listed on the injury report with an ankle. We didn't see or hear about any injury last Sunday, so this is likely a rest day after Crowell's huge 219-yard day against the Broncos. We'll see if he gets back on the field tomorrow.

The Jets have placed RB Elijah McGuire (foot) on IR. He's presumably a candidate to be designated-for-return and play the 2nd half of the season, but he's not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell are locked in as the Jets' top 2 RBs.

Jets HC Todd Bowles conceded Sunday that RB Elijah McGuire won't be ready for Week 1. He's still recovering from late-July surgery to repair a broken foot. Bowles also wouldn't rule out McGuire landing on short-term IR, according to insider Ralph Vacchiano. That'd cost him the first 8 games. McGuire obviously isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell will handle backfield duties for the Jets to open the season.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell has cleared the concussion protocol, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. So he should play in Friday night's preseason game against the Giants. Crowell ran behind RB Bilal Powell in the opener, so we're interested to see what the backfield looks like in the all-important 3rd exhibition.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (concussion) participated in individual drills during Saturday's practice, according to insider Andy Vasquez. We'll see if Crowell can receive full medical clearance ahead of the 3rd preseason game. He ran behind RB Bilal Powell in the 1st and missed the 2nd.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell left Friday’s preseason game to be evaluated for a concussion. He took a hard shot to the head right at the goal line. We’ll pass along updates when they’re available, but Crowell has been a top RB value since the spring. He’s currently coming off the board around RB34.

Update: Crowell did sustain a concussion

Jets RB Elijah McGuire will undergo surgery on his broken foot and is expected to miss 3-6 weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The short end of that timetable would have him back in late August; the long end would keep him out through the season opener. Foot injuries are notoriously tricky to return from, so we're considering McGuire questionable at best for Week 1. He's not worth rostering in most redraft leagues. Look for Bilal Powell to open the season in a pass-catching role behind Isaiah Crowell.

Jets RB Elijah McGuire sustained a fractured foot on Friday. Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the 2nd-year RB will undergo surgery and miss an “extended period.” That knocks him off the radar as a late-round flier. Now, New York’s down to Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell in the backfield, although they’re hosting Alfred Morris and Orleans Darkwa on free agent visits.

The Jets and RB Isaiah Crowell have agreed to a 3-year contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We're waiting for monetary details, but Crowell should be the favorite to lead New York's 2018 backfield in touches. The team has never seemed to want Bilal Powell in a lead role. Crowell saw his carry total climb all 4 years in Cleveland, although he topped out at a relatively modest 206 last year. He also averaged just 4.1 yards per carry in 2017, while ranking 39th among 51 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades. Football Outsiders, however, rated him 25th out of 47 in both main efficiency metrics. At this point, Crowell is tough to like as more than a lower-end RB2 in his new digs.

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell suited up for the 3rd preseason game after missing the 2nd with a groin injury. He operated as Cleveland's clear lead back, carrying 11 times for 40 yards in 1 half of action. With the groin issue behind him, Crowell is safe to draft as a volume-based RB2.

The Browns held RB Isaiah Crowell out of Monday night's preseason game against the Giants after he suffered a groin injury in practice Thursday. Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports that the move was precautionary and that the team isn't worried. The Browns had Friday off, and Crowell was reportedly idle during Saturday's closed session. We'll watch to see whether he's back on the field this week.

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell signed his restricted free agent tender Wednesday. That's not a surprising move, given the lack of interest from potential suitors (who would have had to give a 2nd-round pick) this offseason. It locks Crowell in with Cleveland for at least the coming season, though. And the 2 sides reportedly started the offseason interested in a longer-term deal. We'll see what comes of that. As it is, Crowell will head into 2017 as the clear lead runner for the Browns and an upside fantasy football option. He ranked 9th in the league with 4.8 yards per carry in 2016.

The forecast for today's Browns-Bills game calls for a slight chance of snow but winds of 20-30 mph. That's certainly enough to impact the passing games. Hopefully you're not relying on any part of Cleveland's passing attack. Downgrade Bills QB Tyrod Taylor and WR Sammy Watkins a tad, but both are still fine fantasy starters. Expect a heavy dose of RB LeSean McCoy today.

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell busted off 113 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's loss to the Browns. It was his first 100-yard game since Week 4 and his 1st time over 44 yards since Week 7. Crowell seemed to benefit from the threat of QB Robert Griffin's legs. We'll see if RG3 remains under center next weekend after completing just 12 of 28 passes today. Regardless, Crowell will be no more than a RB3 or flex in Buffalo next Sunday.
