Rejoins Chargers' practice squad
RBFree Agent
December 19, 2020
Pope was signed to the Chargers' practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
The Chargers have routinely used their weekly practice squad call-ups to rotate their running back depth chart, so it makes sense Pope would return to the team's practice squad. The health of Austin Ekeler and Kalen Ballage have relegated Pope to obscurity, but the shifty back did see action in five games so far this season and has totaled 118 yards across 23 touches.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
2016
Pope joined the Chargers' practice squad in late November and was eventually elevated to the 53-man roster two weeks later, but the 25-year-old never actually saw time on the field. He's firmly behind Detrez Newsome as the No. 4 back on the depth chart currently, but an extended Melvin Gordon holdout might help Pope's chances at beginning the season with the Chargers.
Pope played just one game last season for the Jets before being released mid-season. The Texans signed him to their practice squad last November and locked him up to a reserve/future contract. The D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) opens up all kinds of possibility in the Texans backfield. Pope flashed in the first preseason game, including a 34-yard catch, putting him on the map. He and Tyler Ervin are similar in build, so it might come down to whichever one has the better preseason.
Pope only appeared in three games for the Seahawks last season, rushing for 43 yards on 11 attempts. He'll now be one of at least 10 running backs in training camp for the Seahawks vying for a reserve role on the depth chart. He ended last season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed ankle injury, which could factor into his odds of making the 53-man roster. Even if he lands a roster spot, it seems unlikely that he'll be a fantasy producer in 2017.
Pope was named the FCS Running Back of the Year last season, leading Jacksonville State to the FCS title game. He rushed for 1,788 yards, averaging an FCS-leading 8.2 yards per carry. He ran a 4.55 40 at his Pro Day. An undrafted free agent, Pope will have to beat out a couple of drafted rookies to make the team. He can also return kicks, though, so perhaps that will work in his favor.
