WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

The Falcons waived/injured Jeremy Langford.

Langford played one game for Atlanta last season, his first action since 2016. It’s unclear what injury Langford is dealing with, but he’ll revert to injured reserve for the Falcons if no other team claims him.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford gets nine carries in Falcons' win.

Langford gained 25 yards on his nine attempts against the Bucs in Week 17. This was the former Bears starter's first game since the 2016 season, so it was great to see him back on the field before the 2018 campaign ended. Langford is just 27 and will look to start next season on a team, but he's not a fantasy option at the moment.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

The Falcons have signed Jeremy Langford to the 53-man roster.

With Ito Smith (knee) on injured reserve, Langford is getting an opportunity with Atlanta's active roster. The former Bears starter hasn't appeared in a game since 2016, so it'll be cool to see him back on the field again. He's not a recommended fantasy pickup, but perhaps he'll get a good number of touches the last two weeks of the season.

The Dolphins are signing Jeremy Langford, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

The 2015 fourth-round pick of the Bears that had 816 total yards and seven total touchdowns as a rookie was out of football last season, but the Dolphins are giving him a shot. Frank Gore, Kenyan Drake, and Kalen Ballage are all locks for roster spots unless something changes, so Langford will look to play well enough that Miami keeps four running backs on the roster. Special-team contributions will be huge for Langford as he looks to make the team.

The Ravens have placed RB Jeremy Langford on IR.

It's unclear what exactly is the issue with Langford, but it looks like his season might be done. Langford was on Baltimore's practice squad after being cut last week then re-signed. The third-year back has battled some injuries that have derailed his first few years in the league, but he'll look to get healthy and make an impact in the NFL.

The Ravens re-signed RB Jeremy Langford to their practice squad.

The team released Langford last week just a few days after they promoted him to the active roster, but he's back in Baltimore. It's a pretty good spot for him, as the Ravens don't have any clear-cut lead guy in the backfield.

The Ravens waived running back Jeremy Langford.

The team had just called up Langford from the practice squad earlier this week, but they've decided to move on. Fellow running back Alex Collins was brought up to the 53-man roster as a corresponding move. It's surprising Langford was let go at this time, but he shouldn't have trouble getting interest from other teams.

The Ravens signed RB Jeremy Langford off their practice squad.

Danny Woodhead (hamstring) was placed on Injured Reserve, and this is the corresponding move. Langford, who racked 816 total yards and seven total touchdowns as a rookie in 2015 with the Bears, will be the number three back behind Terrance West and Javorius Allen, but there's a chance he carves out a nice role in the backfield. Still, only those in very deep leagues should add Langford right now.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford signed with Baltimore's practice squad, according to Adam Schefter.

The 2015 fourth-round pick and former starting running back in Chicago unsurprisingly wasn't without a job for long. Langford joins recently-released former Seahawks running back Alex Collins on the practice squad for the Ravens, who have a deep group of running backs in their program.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford didn't play in the Bears' second preseason game.

Langford recently returned to practice after dealing with an ankle injury, but he hasn't played in either of the team's preseason games this year. He might be on the roster bubble, given the Bears' depth at running back.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford has a sprained ankle and didn't practice today.

Head coach John Fox says he injured the ankle last night and it was the same one that forced him to miss four games last season. The injury isn't serious, but it shows Langford might not be fully over his ankle issues—sometimes, guys just struggle with bad ankles. He'll be OK though, and hopefully he can take steps to avoid future injuries there. Langford is vying to be the primary backup behind Jordan Howard.

Jeremy Langford rushed 10 times for 26 yards and caught three passes for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

Langford finishes the season with 200 yards on 62 carries (3.2 YPC) and four touchdowns. We still like Langford's talent, but he will be no more than a handcuff to the rising star Jordan Howard in 2017.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford scores in Week 16.

He had seven carries for 19 yards and a touchdown, with one catch for four yards. Langford isn't a fantasy option to conclude the season and will just be a handcuff to impressive rookie Jordan Howard.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford rushed three times for four yards and caught one pass for one yard in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

Langford isn't a fantasy option behind Jordan Howard, who has a clear hold on the Bears featured back role for 2017.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford sees one touch in loss.

Langford rushed once for five yards and was targeted twice but did not catch a pass on Sunday. With Jordan Howard dominating touches, Langford is just a handcuff to the impressive rookie.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford finished with only eight yards on six carries and 30 more yards on three receptions. He saved his day with a one-yard touchdown run.

Langford, like the rest of the team, looked good early as he came in for a dinged Jordan Howard. But he lost yards in the second half and did nothing to warrant a bigger role in the weeks ahead. He'll only be an option if something happens to starter Jordan Howard.

Jeremy Langford | Falcons RB

Jeremy Langford sees just two carries in loss to Bucs.

Langford rushed twice for 16 yards, and caught four passes for just 10 yards. He is clearly behind impressive rookie Jordan Howard, and remains just a handcuff. Still, Langford is talented in his own right, so he is probably one of the better handcuffs to own. Stash him if you have roster space.
