Isaiah Crowell Fantasy Football News 2019

The Raiders have signed RB Isaiah Crowell to a 1-year contract. Crowell averaged 4.8 yards per carry in a wildly inconsistent 2018 with the Jets. He delivered 219 yards in a win over the Dolphins and racked up 102 and 2 TDs on just 10 carries in the surprise opening blowout win at Detroit. But Crowell cracked 50 yards just 1 other time and tallied only 143 rushing attempts (plus 21 catches) for the season. His arrival in Oakland likely means unrestricted free agent Doug Martin is done there. Marshawn Lynch isn't expected to decide until after the NFL Draft whether he'll return for another season. RBs Jalen Richard and Chris Warren remain on the roster. HC Jon Gruden has compared Richard to former RB Charlie Garner, which indicates he'll maintain a significant role. Warren spent his rookie season on IR after a flashy preseason. This backfield figures to see further changes before we can project its 2019 touch splits.

The Jets have released RB Isaiah Crowell. It was a no-brainer move after they landed RB Le'Veon Bell. Crowell averaged 4.8 yards per carry in his lone season in New York. That was fueled by runs of 54, 62 and 77 yards -- but Crowell also didn't get much help from an offensive line that finished dead last in Football Outsiders' Adjusted Line Yards. He ranked 16th in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating among 47 RBs who carried 100+ times last year. We'll see where he lands, but Crowell has a shot to be a fantasy factor in 2019.

The Jets have placed RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) on IR, ending his 2018 campaign. New York promoted RB De'Angelo Henderson from the practice squad to take Crowell's spot on the roster. Henderson and Trenton Cannon will handle change-of-pace duties behind Elijah McGuire over the final 3 weeks. McGuire is just a RB3 vs. a tough Texans defense on Saturday but has a more favorable matchup against the Packers in Week 16.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) is out for Saturday night's game against the Texans. RB Elijah McGuire (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report after limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday. McGuire should see 15+ touches on Saturday but is just a RB3 vs. a tough Houston run defense.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) did not practice on Tuesday. He seems unlikely to play against the Texans on Saturday after aggravating that foot injury last week. Crowell's absence would leave Elijah McGuire as New York's lead back -- but just a RB3 in fantasy lineups vs. Houston's 7th-ranked RB defense.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell re-injured his foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bills. He was in obvious pain and was helped to the locker room. Crowell is officially questionable to return. His absence leaves the Jets with RBs Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be close to 100%. Crowell is a shaky RB3 play.

The Jets expect RB Isaiah Crowell to play today against the Bills despite a toe injury that has him questionable, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Crowell only put in a limited Friday practice after missing the previous 2 days. The injury obviously adds downside risk to a guy who hasn't been giving fantasy owners much anyway. Avoid him if you can.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bills. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’ll get Crowell’s official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he’ll be a shaky RB3 if active. If not, Elijah McGuire will be a RB3 or flex consideration.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It looks like he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Bills. Crowell's absence would leave Elijah McGuire as New York's lead back, with Trenton Cannon as the #2.

The Jets have activated RB Elijah McGuire (foot) from IR, putting him on track to play against the Dolphins this weekend. He would be a desperation Week 9 fantasy start, but he could quickly earn a significant role in this backfield and is worth rostering in most fantasy leagues. McGuire's return dings RB Isaiah Crowell's outlook and kills any PPR value RB Trenton Cannon had.

10:10am EDT 10/24/18

The Jets have placed RB Bilal Powell on IR with the neck injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Vikings. He's not eligible to return until Week 16, if he's able to return at all. Powell can safely be dropped from fantasy rosters. He was averaging 11.4 carries and 2.6 targets per game this season, so it's a significant loss. RB Isaiah Crowell should soak up most of those carries. Trenton Cannon stepped in as the pass-catching back in Week 7, hauling in 4 of 5 targets for 69 yards. RB Elijah McGuire seems close to returning from the broken foot he suffered in late July and could re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the 2nd half of the season.

Jets RB Bilal Powell suffered a neck injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Vikings and has been ruled out. That should leave Isaiah Crowell in a 3-down role.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (ankle, knee, shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His absence helps the Jets' rushing outlook. Pro Football Focus grades Joseph among the top one-third of interior defenders in run D. That doesn't propel Isaiah Crowell or Bilal Powell into attractive fantasy territory, but it makes each more palatable if you need 1 of them.

11:10am EDT 10/21/18

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He only got in 1 limited practice this week. But he did the same last week before carrying 13 times and seeing 2 targets. He should see a similar workload today. But Minnesota’s 9th-ranked RB defense leaves Crowell as a weak fantasy play.
