Joe McKnight: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

McKnight (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McKnight ruptured his Achilles in practice last week, so it was just a matter of time before he ended up on IR. The fourth-year back posted a career game in Week 3 with Jamaal Charles out with an ankle injury - catching six passes for 64 yards and two scores - after not playing at all in 2013. His loss makes the eventual return of De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) more intriguing, though Charles and Knile Davis will continue to handle most of the work out of the backfield for Kansas City.
McKnight (Achilles) will not play in Monday's game against the Patriots.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Joe McKnight.

2014

The former Jet signed with the Chiefs this offseason and will enter camp competing for a spot on the Chiefs' roster as a depth running back/returner.

2013

McKnight may see a few carries from time-to-time but will see the field as a dynamic kick returner.

2012

McKnight saw double-digit carries in just one game last season, but he impressed in that outing, totaling 121 yards during a Week 12 game in Denver. He finished the year with a poor 3.1 YPC mark, and itís pretty clear the Jets view him as nothing more than a complementary player incapable of handling a lot of touches. But starter Shonn Greene has proven to be a plodder, and itís not implausible McKnight outplays him in 2012; itís just that it may not result in more playing time. For what itís worth, McKnight reportedly gained 15 pounds of muscle during the offseason.

2011

Expecting to be the No. 3 running back on the depth chart behind Shonn Greene and LaDanian Tomlinson, the Jets surprised McKnight by drafting Bilal Powell in the fourth round of the 2011 Draft. Whether this dampens McKnight's work ethic or increases it is completely up to him. McKnight showed some promise in Week 17 of the 2010 season, but if there is any week to take with a grain of salt, it's that one. McKnight will be given an opportunity to be the primary kick returner, but his fantasy value will be limited to that role.

2010

Here's a name to be aware of; you never know what might happen to Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson, and the Jets OL is a star-making machine. That said, let's be very clear on this: McKnight is unlikely to get a lot of carries as a rookie unless someone gets hurt.
