Elijah McGuire (ankle) cleared for Jets on Saturday

New York Jets running back Elijah McGuire (ankle) practiced in full Thursday and will play Week 15 versus the Houston Texans on Saturday.

What It Means:

Isaiah Crowell (toe) has been ruled out, so McGuire will lead the way for the Jets' backfield. He picked up 83 yards and a touchdown on 20 touches last Sunday. Trenton Cannon (toe) is questionable for Week 15.

Without yet accounting for Crowell's absence, models project McGuire for 10.9 touches and 8.0 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,400 on Saturday. He is currently the RB36 in numberFire's Week 15 fantasy rankings.
