22-Year-Old Running BackRB
New York Jets
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Knight spent most of 2022 on the Jets' practice squad until injuries paved the way for the undrafted rookie out of North Carolina State to debut in Week 12. The man known as "Bam" came in with a bang, topping 100 scrimmage yards in each of his first two NFL appearances before adding 77 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in his third game. Knight ran out of gas after that, mustering just 70 rushing yards on 39 carries over his final four games. New York hopes to have starter Breece Hall back from ACL surgery by Week 1 and drafted running back Israel Abanikanda in the fifth round to go with Hall and 2021 fourth-round pick Michael Carter, so Knight could be relegated back to the practice squad unless the Jets opt to roster four running backs.

Knight rushed 12 times for 22 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins.
ANALYSIS
Knight burst onto the scene with consecutive 100-yard scrimmage games, but he cooled off after the hot start, totaling only 70 rushing yards on 39 rushing attempts for a paltry 1.8 yards per carry over his last four appearances. The undrafted rookie could factor into the Jets' backfield plans next season, though he'll likely be pushed to a reserve role whenever Breece Hall (knee) is deemed healthy. Knight totaled exactly 300 yards on 85 carries and 13 catches for 100 yards on 14 targets across seven appearances.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Knight signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent after topping 900 scrimmage yards in 12 games last year at NC State, and the 21-year-old running back will try to secure a depth spot in New York's backfield. He also had two kickoff return touchdowns in 2021, so Knight's best chance of making the roster is as a return specialist.
