Silent to close regular season
RBTennessee Titans
January 4, 2021
McNichols did not log a stat in Week 17 against the Texans. He closed the regular season with 47 rushes for 204 yards and a touchdown to go along with 12 receptions for 55 yards.
ANALYSIS
McNichols worked as the backup to Derrick Henry for much of the season. He had flashes of production, highlighted by games with 51 and 49 rushing yards. However, due to Henry's dominance, McNichols was regularly relegated to little or no action on offense. McNichols remains under contract with the Titans through the end of the 2021 season, and will likely fight for the backup role once again.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
A fifth-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2017 draft, McNichols has already proven to be a journeyman just two years into his career. His profile is highlighted by strong size-adjusted athleticism, as he pairs a 79th percentile BMI with 4.49 40-yard speed. That combination helped him turn in impressive college production, highlighted by a massive sophomore season in which he compiled 1,337 rushing yards and 20 rushing touchdowns. He also proved to be an effective receiver at the college level, racking up 66 receptions for 615 yards and seven scores across his two seasons Boise State. After joining the Titans' organization as a member of the practice squad late in the 2018 season, McNichols has a chance to latch on as the fourth running back on the team's depth chart entering 2019. Though he's only received two NFL carries, he could be a natural fit to fill in Dion Lewis' role as a satellite back if Lewis were to be sidelined for any significant amount of time.
McNichols spent the majority of the 2017 season on the 49ers' practice squad after getting cut by Tampa Bay in the preseason, though he didn't record a snap in the four games he spent on the 53-man roster at the end of the season. The 5-foot-9 back showed up to camp this year in better shape, but he is still has a tough hill to climb before making the 53-man roster, with a slew of other hungry running backs competing for backup spots behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida.
McNichols' surprise draft free fall looked like a steal for the Bucs in the fifth round, as the former Boise State standout boasted first-round worthy numbers. The 21-year-old compiled 3,205 rushing yards and 44 touchdowns in just three college seasons, impressively complementing those totals with 103 receptions for 1,089 yards and 11 additional scores through the air. McNichols also brings a solid track record as a blocker and is expected to be fully recovered from his post-Combine shoulder surgery by training camp. Alas, McNichols didn't make the cut, thus halting for now any talk that he might be a fantasy sleeper out of the gate.
