2019 Fantasy Outlook
A knee injury cut short Clement's 2018 season, but the second-year back hadn't been doing much to distinguish himself before that. The Eagles' crowded backfield did him no favors, as he saw double-digit carries twice in 11 games, though he also was less efficient with the touches he got. It's tough to say if his poor season was merely a product of the team's decline, or if Clement's struggles were a major contributing factor to that decline. At 5-10, 220, he's at his best grinding between the tackles but also displayed unexpected receiving chops during the 2017 Super Bowl run. The addition of Jordan Howard will limit goal-line chances, and Clement said he'll slim down to become quicker and more useful as a pass catcher. The Eagles drafted Miles Sanders in the second round and still have Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams on the roster, so Clement will need a good summer to earn a key role. Read Past Outlooks

Headed for pass-catching role

July 9, 2019
Clement (knee) is the favorite to replace Darren Sproles on passing downs, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite catching just 29 passes throughout his college career, Clement worked his way into the third-down role by the end of his rookie season, culminating in four catches for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl. His second pro campaign was far less successful, with Clement catching 22 passes and averaging just 3.8 yards per carry in 11 games before he was sent to injured reserve Week 15 to have knee surgery. The 24-year-old was restricted to rehab work throughout the offseason program and may be limited or unavailable when the Eagles begin training camp in late July. Once he's cleared for practice, Clement will face tough competition for carries but much softer competition for targets. Jordan Howard struggled in the passing game during his time with the Bears, and rookie second-round pick Miles Sanders (hamstring) finished his Penn State career with just 193 receiving yards. The biggest challenge may come from Wendell Smallwood, who caught 28 of 35 targets for 230 yards (6.6 YPT) and two scores last season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
An undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin last season, Clement initially made his mark on special teams, and when he did get his chances on offense he produced, scoring six touchdowns on only 84 touches. Clement is never going to be mistaken for a burner - he ran a 4.68 40-yard dash at the combine - but his low center of gravity and wide frame make him tough to bring down in short-yardage situations, and he has some surprising agility and elusiveness for a player his size (5-10, 220). Clement isn't a natural pass catcher, but he does appear competent as a pass blocker and at least didn't embarrass himself as a receiver. The midseason addition of Jay Ajayi and the re-signing of Darren Sproles leaves the Eagles' depth chart crowded, but Clement seems like the team's best option to spell Ajayi on early downs and in short-yardage spots. If the former Dolphin were to burn another bridge or run into more trouble with his balky knee, Clement could suddenly find himself with a lead role in a high-scoring offense.
Clement signed with his hometown team after going undrafted out of Wisconsin, where he rushed for 1,357 yards in his senior season. Prior to the signing of LeGarrette Blount, Clement was thought to have a good chance to make the Eagles' 53-man roster because at 5-10 and 220 pounds, the former Badger was the largest running back on the team. Clement isn't known for his pass-catching ability and will now have to contend with more multifaceted backs like Darren Sproles, Donnel Pumphrey and Byron Marshall in addition to Blount and the returning Wendell Smallwood in order to see playing time in 2017.
