Heading into Week 15 fantasy football, rookie running back Elijah McGuire of the New York Jets is easily a safe sit against the New Orleans Saints.
Unfortunately for rookie running back Elijah McGuire, he’s currently dealing with an ankle injury that he suffered last week against the Denver Broncos. While he was limited in practice this week with the New York Jets, he will more than likely be a non-factor in Week 15 fantasy football.
Besides facing a tough New Orleans Saints team on the road, McGuire is third on the depth chart at running back for the Jets. Even though running back Matt Forte is dealing with a nagging knee injury, he’s more than likely going to get a few reps his way as his status is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints.
Running back Bilal Powell will more than likely get starting duties once again due to Forte’s injury and well, that doesn’t bode well for McGuire. Considering that McGuire was limited in practice this week with the Jets means either he’ll get very little reps or might not even play at all.

As always, head coach Todd Bowles will make the final decision on McGuire but either way, it’s best to sit McGuire this week. He hasn’t done much of anything all season long for the Jets and even though he has potential to be a decent running back over the next few years, he won’t do much of anything this week against the Saints.
START OR SIT?: Fantasy Pros Start or Sit Assistant Tool
Sit McGuire this week and don’t even think twice about it since he hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 4. Trust me when I say, there isn’t a hidden sleeper pick here or anything and since it’s fantasy playoff time, don’t make an ill-fated decision by starting him as you will regret it for a very long time.
