Troymaine Pope
25-Year-Old Running BackRB
2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Scores first career touchdown
RBLos Angeles Chargers
September 30, 2019
Pope carried the ball 10 times for 20 yards and also caught both of his targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in the 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
The fourth-year running back found the end zone for the first time in his career, taking an easy checkdown from Rivers 13 yards in for the score. Pope likely won't have many opportunities in the future, with Melvin Gordon expected to make his 2019 in-game debut in Week 5 and Justin Jackson (calf) nearing his return.

Depth Chart Watch: Fallout From Week 13
December 6, 2016
Andrew Fiorentino tallies up the injuries and demotions that have lain waste to depth charts across the league, but Thomas Rawls' big performance should ensure he remains the lead dog in Seattle's backfield.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
