Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell suffered a torn Achilles during a team workout on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Crowell is out for the season. This is obviously a really tough break for Crowell, who just signed a one-year deal with Oakland. The good news is Crowell is still just 26 years old, and he'll likely draw interest around the league next offseason after he proves he's back to 100%. From a fantasy perspective, this injury doesn't have huge implications, but it almost certainly means first-round rookie Josh Jacobs will be the team's clear No. 1 running back from Day 1. Look for the Raiders to add another veteran back to the backfield mix, though.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

The Raiders and Isaiah Crowell have agreed to a one-year deal, according to Adam Schefter.

According to Schefter, the deal can be worth up to $2.5 million, so this isn't even necessarily the kind of money that will assure Crowell of a role in Oakland's backfield. Still, the depth chart is wide open, and Crowell will have a good shot of winning the starting job if the team doesn't invest a Day 1 or Day 2 pick on a rookie runner. The 26-year-old rushed 143 times for 685 yards (4.8 YPC) and six touchdowns last year for the Jets, but much of the damage came in a couple outlier performances.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

The Jets have released Isaiah Crowell.

The team just signed Le'Veon Bell yesterday, so this was fully expected. Crowell's one season in New York was up and down, as he had 685 rushing yards on 4.8 yards per carry, but most of the damage came in a ten-carry, 102-yard game in Week 1 and a 15-carry, 219-yard game in Week 5 (which broke a Jets franchise record). He averaged under 3.8 yards per carry in six of his seven other games with ten-plus carries. Crowell is just 26 and will likely draw interest pretty quickly around the league.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

The Jets are placing Isaiah Crowell (toe) on injured reserve, according to multiple reports.

Second-year running back Elijah McGuire is set to lead the Jets backfield for the final three games of the season, with rookie Trenton Cannon mixing in. Crowell's season ends with 143 carries for 685 yards and six touchdowns along with 21 receptions for 152 yards in 13 games. Most of his damage came on his 219-yard showing, and the former Brown probably didn't play as well as his 4.8 yard-per-carry indicates. For 2019, Crowell's fantasy outlook is very much up in the air, but we don't expect he'll lead the Jets backfield.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (toe) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Crowell didn't practice all week and has already been ruled out for Saturday, indicating this is a week-to-week thing that could keep him out the final three games of the season. Rookie running back Elijah McGuire is set to lead the Jets backfield for the second week of the fantasy playoffs, but he's just a weaker FLEX option in a difficult matchup with the Texans.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (toe) officially did not practice today.

Crowell looks doubtful to play against the Texans on Saturday, but we'll update you with his official Week 15 game status when it's released sometime tomorrow. Rookie running back Elijah McGuire is worth a look as a potential addition to fantasy rosters if he's still available in your league.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (toe) did not practice today.

Crowell is probably on the doubtful side of things for Saturday afternoon against the Texans, but we'll track his status throughout the week. Elijah McGuire (ankle) and Trenton Cannon (toe) both also missed today's practice but are thought to be OK.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (foot) did not return against the Bills.

Crowell was injured in the first half and never returned. He had two carries for five yards and one reception for two yards before leaving. This could be a multi-week injury for Crowell, but more information should become available in the next day or so.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (foot) is officially questionable to return.

Crowell went to the locker room without his helmet, and he didn't appear to be moving too well. It's officially being called a foot injury. Elijah McGuire will likely handle most of the backfield work for as long as Crowell is out.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell handles 25 touches in loss to the Titans.

Crowell rushed 21 times for 98 yards, also adding four receptions for nine yards. It wasn't exactly an efficient showing by the former Browns starter, but the volume was there for fantasy owners that rolled with him as a desperation FLEX play. It will be interesting to see if the Jets stick with Crowell down the stretch, but it would seem wise to get Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon more involved in a lost season. Crowell probably remains a shaky FLEX for Week 14 in Buffalo.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets nine touches in Week 12.

Crowell carried six times for 30 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards against the Patriots. Crowell hasn't crossed 50 rushing yards since his 219-yard outburst in Week 5, so he's not a recommended fantasy option right now.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell scores against the Bills.

Crowell carried seven times for 19 yards and a touchdown along with two receptions for 18 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss. Despite the touchdown, Crowell hasn't run the ball well for most of this season, so he's in danger of having Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon take control of the backfield after the Jets' Week 11 bye week.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets 14 touches against the Dolphins.

Crowell carried 13 times for 49 yards and added one reception for 11 yards in the Jets' Week 9 loss. Second-year running back Elijah McGuire (ten touches, 67 yards) was impressive in his first action of 2018, and Crowell is probably in danger of losing the starting role soon. We recommend selling high on him if you can.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets shut down in Week 8.

Crowell carried 13 times for 25 yards and added one reception for 13 yards against the Bears. Through eight games, Crowell is on pace for 188 carries, 968 rushing yards, ten rushing touchdowns, 20 receptions, and 164 receiving yards. He's been major hit-or-miss this season, and it's difficult to trust him as anything more than a weak FLEX option in fantasy lineups.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets 12 touches against the Vikings.

Crowell carried 11 times for 29 yards and added one reception for 21 yards in the Week 7 loss. With Bilal Powell suffering a neck injury, Crowell might become the clear top option in the Jets backfield if Powell misses time. Crowell would be easier to trust in fantasy lineups with Powell out, but hopefully his teammate is OK.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (foot) is active for Week 7.

Crowell was listed as questionable but expected to play against the Vikings, and he is indeed active. He’s a risky FLEX option against a tough run defense.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (foot) is questionable for Week 7.

Crowell was listed as questionable with an ankle injury last week and ultimately played, but this is a different injury he's dealing with. He missed the first two days of practice this week and appears to be a true game-time all. If Crowell is out, Bilal Powell might get a heavy workload against the Vikings and would be a better FLEX option than if Crowell is active. Crowell's status will be knowns by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets 15 touches against the Colts.

Crowell carried 13 times for 40 yards and added two receptions for 12 yards in the Week 6 victory. Meanwhile, Bilal Powell rushed 16 times for 59 yards. Hopefully you didn't chase the points from Crowell's franchise record performance last week. He's a shaky FLEX option for Week 7 against the vikings.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is officially active against the Colts.

Crowell was listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but there wasn’t much doubt he’d be on the field coming off a Jets record 219 rushing yards last week. Crowell is a volatile FLEX option for Week 6.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is questionable for Week 6 against the Colts.

Crowell is said to be a game-time decision, but fantasy owners are in a good spot with the Jets kicking off at 1 PM ET. While the 25-year-old is coming off a franchise-record 219 rushing yards in last week's win over Denver, we are still hesitant to label him as an RB2 with 35 or fewer yards in three-of-five games, so the ankle issue probably makes him more of a volatile FLEX option. If Crowell sits, Bilal Powell would be a low-end RB2/FLEX option in all formats.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell breaks Jets' single-game rushing record in Week 5.

The Jets offensive line did an excellent job of opening lanes for the running backs, and Crowell was able to bust open for a few long runs including a 77-yard touchdown run. Overall, Crowell had 15 carries for 219 yards (14.6 yards per carry) and a touchdown along with one reception for 12 yards. Crowell has been boom-or-bust this season, so consider him just a FLEX option next week against the Colts.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell totals three yards in Week 4.

Crowell carried four times for zero yards and caught one pass (on one target) for three yards in the Jets' loss to the Jaguars. Obviously this was an extremely risky game to insert Crowell into fantasy lineups, and he was out-touched by Bilal Powell 12-5. Crowell is difficult to trust in lineups in Week 5 against Denver.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell scores twice in Week 3.

Crowell had a couple of second-quarter scores in the Jets' loss to the Browns, with both touchdowns coming deep in the red zone. Crowell had 16 carries for 34 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns, along with two receptions for 17 receiving yards. Unfortunately, his highlight was a distasteful and immature touchdown celebration after his second score against his former team, which should cost him a lot of money with the NFL. He was also visibly frustrated with his offensive linemen on certain plays despite them doing the dirty work on both of his scores—so that wasn't a good look either. It's hard to trust Crowell in fantasy lineups with a matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets 14 touches in Jets' loss.

Crowell was the clear lead ball-carrier against the Dolphins, carrying 12 times (compared to Bilal Powell's five) for 35 yards. He also had two receptions for four yards, but Powell was heavily involved as a receiver with five receptions for 74 yards and a score. This remains a committee backfield, so neither Crowell or Powell is more than a FLEX option.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell breaks 62-yard touchdown in Jets' win.

Bilal Powell started the game for the Jets, but Crowell worked in for nearly about an even split and ran the ball well with his opportunities, eclipsing 100 yards and scoring twice versus the Lions. Overall, he had ten carries for 102 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. The long touchdown was on an outside run that Crowell got to the second level and to the sideline, where he was off to the races. Expect a similar backfield split in Week 2 against the Dolphins, as Powell (12 carries for 60 yards) also ran the ball well.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell is expected to play tomorrow's presason game.

After missing a week because of a concussion suffered in the Jets' first preseason game, Crowell is out of concussion protocol and should be back for the important third preseason game tomorrow against the Giants. Hopefully the Jets starters get extensive action so we can get a good look at the running back situation for them. Crowell and Bilal Powell are expected to handle most of the work in the backfield this season.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell is apparently being evaluated for a concussion.

On a 16-yard touchdown reception from Teddy Bridgewater, Crowell took a big shot from a few Falcons defenders as he crossed the goal line. Crowell was under the medical tent for a few minutes before heading to the locker room. His night is probably over, but hopefully it's not too serious.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell is expected to take a Matt Forte type of role with the Jets.

Jets.com Senior Reporter Eric Allen says Crowell will take the place of Forte, who retired after the season. Jets head coach Todd Bowles said of Crowell: "We like his toughness, we like the way he can slash through and cut. He's a tough runner. We think he's a pound-it back as well as having some versatile lateral movement that can play out on the edge a little bit. And we thought he'd be a great younger-legged type of Forté utility guy coming in. Maybe not the receiver Forté is to a certain degree, but running the ball, we thought he would help in the backfield from a toughness standpoint.” It sounds like the Jets coaches expect the backfield to be a lot like last year, when it was a couple of veterans handling the load with Elijah McGuire mixing in. Former Seahawk Thomas Rawls was also added to the mix, and there's a lot of time to go until the start of the regular season, but expect the Jets backfield to be headlined by Crowell and Bilal Powell for now.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

The Jets officially signed running back Isaiah Crowell.

According to reports, it’s a three-year deal in which the Jets can easily cut Crowell after this season with no cap repercussions. Crowell will join Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire in the backfield, so he has limited fantasy upside in what is likely to be a committee.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Former Browns running back Isaiah Crowell is expected to sign with the Jets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's a three-year deal for Crowell. After losing Matt Forte to retirement, the Jets are adding Crowell to the mix to go along with Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. It's possible the Jets have another full-blown committee in 2018, but it'll be interesting to see the numbers on Crowell's deal. Crowell averaged 4.2 yards per carry in his four seasons with the Browns. This deal cannot become official until the start of the new league year tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets shutdown in season finale.

Crowell rushed 15 times for just 21 yards. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, the 24-year-old disappointed with 206 attempts for 853 yards (4.1 yards per carry) and two touchdowns in 2017. Crowell was pegged for a breakout behind an improved offensive line, but the truth is that he's not a difference-making NFL talent. He will look to strike a nice deal on the open market, but it's more likely that he settles for a backup role than it is he becomes a bonafide starter and fantasy option. We'd avoid him wherever he lands in 2018.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets 13 touches in Week 16.

Crowell had 12 carries for 44 yards and one reception for -1 yards in the loss to Chicago. Despite some concerns with Crowell and Hue Jackson seeming to have a strained relationship, he worked as the primary ball-carrier for the Browns today. He's not a great fantasy option in Week 17 against Pittsburgh.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell sees just nine touches in Week 15 loss.

Crowell rushed five times for 72 yards, including a 59-yard run, also "adding" four receptions for negative-seven yards (which is one of the many reasons that PPR doesn't make any sense). The 24-year-old won't be a recommended fantasy option against the Bears on Christmas Eve as the Browns look to earn their first win of the season.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell goes over 100 yards in Week 14.

Crowell had 19 carries for 121 yards while adding three receptions for ten yards against Green Bay. This was Crowell's first 100-yard rushing game of the season, which is not what those that drafted him expected heading into the year. Next week against Baltimore, Crowell is in the FLEX conversation.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets ten carries against the Chargers.

Crowell gained 41 yards on his ten attempts, and he also added a three-yard reception. He ran pretty well with his opportunities, but Crowell didn't get enough of them to make a fantasy impact against the Chargers. He's a FLEX option next week against Green Bay.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell goes over 100 total yards in loss to the Bengals.

Crowell rushed 16 times for 95 yards and caught a 10-yard pass. He bounced back from an 11-carry, 18-yard effort against Jacksonville, but Crowell is still not a recommended fantasy option for the winless Browns. They head to Los Angeles to face the Chargers next Sunday.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell gets 11 carries against Jacksonville.

Crowell gained 18 yards on his 11 attempts, as the Jaguars continued their improvement in run defense over the last couple weeks. Crowell had gotten going a bit over the last two games, but there's always a chance he puts up a dud like this. He'll be an uninspiring FLEX option against the Bengals next week.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell rushed 16 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

He also caught a five-yard pass. The performance was easily Crowell's best of 2017, and the Cleveland running game has somehow been significantly better since All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas went down for the year. The previously underperforming Crowell is back to FLEX territory heading into a matchup with the Jaguars.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell scores in Browns’ loss.

Crowell carried 11 times for 64 yards and a touchdown while adding four receptions for 54 yards, including a long of 38 yards on a short pass that he went untouched and almost all the way to the end zone. Though he did lose a fumble, this was Crowell’s best game of the season, and he’ll look to keep it going when the Browns return from their Week 9 bye.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell does almost nothing on the ground in Week 7 loss.

Crowell rushed 17 times for 35 yards and no touchdowns. He was able to catches four passes for 36 yards, but overall, it was another poor performance. Duke Johnson was the better player again, but there's no indication that the Browns won't stick with Crowell as the lead back against Minnesota next Sunday in London. It's safe to drop him anyway.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell rushed 12 times for 58 yards in Sunday's blowout loss.

He also caught two passes for 15 yards. Crowell continues to be outplayed by Duke Johnson, but he remains clearly ahead of him for carries. Sunday was probably Crowell's best game of the season, which is disappointing. He's yet to score in 2017, and that's unlikely to change next week against Tennessee. Keep him out of lineups.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell has another inefficient day for Cleveland.

Crowell rushed 16 times for 60 yards and caught two passes for seven yards. The starter was stuffed on a short fourth down with the Browns knocking on the door of the end zone, and he also couldn't haul in a DeShone Kizer pitch on an option play with the Browns attempting to score earlier in the game. Overall, it was a bad performance, and it's clear Crowell isn't the answer for Cleveland. Perhaps Kevin Hogan or Cody Kessler becoming the starting quarterback would open things up, but Crowell shouldn't be in fantasy lineups until he shows something.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell again doesn't do much in Browns loss.

Crowell carried seven times for 20 yards and had a seven-yard reception versus the Bengals. He's on pace for 184 carries for 536 yards this season, so obviously things can only go up from here. Crowell gets the Jets in Week 5 in a game that hopefully will be close so that Browns can run the ball more.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell again doesn't do much in loss to the Colts.

Crowell carried 12 times for 44 yards against Indy, while also adding two receptions for ten yards. He has yet to top 45 rushing yards in a game this season, and he's only averaging 2.9 yards per carry. There's opportunity and upside there behind a solid offensive line on paper, but Crowell should probably be out of your fantasy lineup if possible until he starts putting up numbers.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell rushed 10 times for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to Baltimore.

Crowell wasn't expected to have a strong fantasy performance against the Ravens' elite defense. He is going to continue to see heavy boxes until quarterback DeShone Kizer makes the defense pay or there's a change at the position. That said, he will hopefully have more carries next week against the Colts. He's a low-end RB2 for that one.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell struggles in season opener.

Crowell rushed 17 times for just 33 yards, but he did match his rushing output with 33 yards on two receptions. Teams are going to make rookie DeShone Kizer try to beat them by stacking the box against the run, and that's bad news for Crowell. He isn't a good fantasy option next week against Baltimore's elite defense.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell rushed 11 times for 40 yards on Saturday night.

Cleveland's starting offense really struggled against Tampa Bay, but the workload is a good sign for Crowell's fantasy outlook. He is a good pick in the third/fourth round of fantasy drafts, and that is exactly where he is currently going.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell is not playing in tonight's preseason game against Giants.

Crowell is dealing with a groin injury, but it's probably not too serious as he was not known to have missed any practice. The Browns are probably just being cautious with their starting running back. We'll see if he can get out there on Saturday for the third preseason game.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Crowell leads Browns in carries for preseason opener.

The Browns starter rushed six times for 15 yards and caught one pass for nine yards. With Duke Johnson playing a lot at wide receiver (mostly in the slot), Crowell is the clear lead back for Cleveland. He will try to be better in the next exhibition versus a stringy Giants defense.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Hue Jackson: "we have to run the ball more."

Jackson said the team didn't run enough last season. Jackson loves to run the ball, but had the second fewest rush attempts in the league last season. The Browns have one of the better offensive lines in the league, and they're almost certain to run more this season. Isaiah Crowell, who had 198 carries last season and averaged 4.8 yards per carry, has 250 carry upside this season.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

The Browns placed a second round tender on restricted free agent Isaiah Crowell.

Rapoport reports that the Browns are going to try to reach a long-term extension with Crowell. He will almost certainly be back in Cleveland next season. The Browns seem to think highly of him.

Isaiah Crowell rushed 19 times for 152 yards in Sunday's overtime loss.

Crowell committed a crucial (perfect?) mistake with a lost fumble as the Browns could have ran the clock down and kicked a field goal to win in regulation, but they will at least get the #1 overall pick with the loss. Crowell finishes the season with a respectable 952 yards on 198 carries (4.8 YPC) and seven touchdowns, but mostly struggled outside of a hot start and good finish. If he's the starter next season, Crowell could be a good FLEX, but the Browns seem destined to add a big-time runner in the draft.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell scores twice against the Chargers

Crowell had 16 carries for 54 yards and two touchdowns, along with four catches for only four yards. Hue Jackson noted that Crowell is someone he really likes and wants to keep around for the future, so Crowell has a chance to head into 2017 as the Browns' lead back again. He'll finish his season against the Steelers and will be an RB2/FLEX option.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell had eight carries for 28 yards in a loss to the Bills.

The Browns played from behind and couldn't get the run game going. Crowell is just a FLEX.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell finally has good game in loss.

Crowell rushed 10 times for 113 yards and caught one pass for five yards on Sunday. Perhaps the return of RGIII helped boost the running game, but fantasy owners rolling with Crowell will take it. Still, Crowell isn't a good starting option for Week 15 against the Bills.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Crowell struggles again on the ground in Week 12.

He had 16 carries for only 44 yards, but did add six catches for 47 yards. The Giants gave the Browns no room to run. That's three straight weeks that Crowell has really struggled. The Browns have a Week 13 bye to try to get things right. Crowell will be a FLEX option in Week 14.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Isaiah Crowell completely shut down in loss.

Crowell rushed eight times for 10 yards and caught five passes for 13 yards. After a blazing start to the year, we recommended selling high on Crowell, and hopefully you did. He was outplayed by Duke Johnson again on Sunday, and now looks like someone you can drop without worry. Crowell is averaging just 2.46 yards per carry since Week 5. Looking ahead, there is a chance Cleveland becomes the first team this millennium to draft a running back with the first overall pick, as Leonard Fournette would provide a huge boost to the offense.

Isaiah Crowell | Raiders RB

Crowell shut down by Ravens on Thursday night.

The Ravens have a top-five run defense, and the Browns couldn't get anything going on the ground (or offensively overall). Crowell had nine carries for 23 yards, along with three catches for 30 yards. Crowell will be a decent RB2 next week against the Steelers.
