Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

The Jets are promoting Josh Adams to the active roster.

Adams is getting brought up from the practice squad with La'Mical Perine (ankle) out a few weeks. Frank Gore is set to lead the Jets backfield, though, and Adams is not a recommended fantasy pickup.

The Jets promoted Josh Adams to the active roster.

Le'Veon Bell had an MRI on his knee yesterday (which we are still waiting to hear the results of), so this promotion could have something to do with that. But NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says that other teams were interested in signing Adams, so perhaps the Jets thought they might lose him and didn't want to. The second-year running back is not a highly recommended redraft pickup, even if Bell misses time.

Josh Adams is signing with the Jets practice squad, according to NFL Network.

Adams led the Eagles in rushing last season, but the team was too loaded at running back after acquiring Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders earlier this year. The Notre Dame product is unlikely to have much fantasy value if he's promoted to the active roster.

The Eagles are waiving Josh Adams.

Adams ran for 511 yards last season, but Philadelphia's backfield added Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders in the offseason. The Notre Dame product is a pretty good bet to be claimed on the waiver wire tomorrow.

Josh Adams underwent shoulder surgery, according to multiple reports.

Adams played through a labrum injury late last season, which likely limited his effectiveness. He'll now miss the start of offseason training, but he should be ready to go for training camp at the latest. With Jordan Howard now in the mix for Philadelphia, Adams will be vying for a backup role with the Eagles and does not look like a highly-recommended fantasy option for 2019 at the moment.

Josh Adams gets zero touches in playoff loss.

Adams didn't seem to see an offensive snap, as Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles handled all the work out of the backfield. The undrafted rookie isn't a lock to make the roster in 2019, but it's worth noting that he was banged up down the stretch. Philadelphia seems like a team that could spend money in free agency or invest a high draft pick in a running back this offseason.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams gets one touch in Eagles' playoff win.

Adams gained two yards on his lone attempt against the Bears, as Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood dominated the touches in the Eagles backfield. Look for the rookie running back to remain the third option in the backfield in the Divisional Round versus New Orleans.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams gets 14 touches against the Redskins.

Adams carried 11 times for 50 yards and caught three passes for 33 yards in the Eagles' win. Wendell Smallwood started the game and continues to run the ball better than Adams, but Adams received nearly as many touches. The undrafted rookie's first regular season ends with 120 carries for 511 yards and three touchdowns along with seven receptions for 58 yards. He'll now get a taste of the playoffs in his first NFL season, and the run game will obviously be important for Philadelphia as they look to repeat.

Josh Adams gets 11 carries in Week 16.

Adams gained 21 yards on his 11 attempts along with a lost fumble against the Texans, as Houston did a good job of containing Philly's run game. However, the undrafted rookie again just didn't have a great showing, as he appeared to be hesitant at times; though it appears the Eagles want to keep utilizing him as the primary ball-carrier, so he's in the FLEX mix to conclude the regular season next week against Washington.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams scores in Week 15.

Adams had 15 carries for 28 yards and a touchdown against the Rams. While a touchdown made it a solid day for fantasy owners, the undrafted rookie looked to be a little too patient throughout the night, and he didn't hit the holes as aggressively or consistently as Wendell Smallwood (ten carries, 48 yards, two touchdowns). There's definite risk playing Adams in fantasy title matchups next week against a tough Texans team, especially with the chance Smallwood eats into his workload or takes the top role outright.

Josh Adams (back) has returned for the Eagles.

Adams didn't miss much time and is back in there against the Rams. The rookie already has one touchdown tonight while splitting time with Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams (back) is questionable to return against the Rams.

It's unclear when Adams was hurt, but now Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood will handle the backfield work for as long as the rookie running back is out. We'll update you as more information becomes available.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams rushed seven times for 36 yards in Sunday's loss the Cowboys.

Adams looked good early on, but clock-killing drives by Dallas along with Philly not stringing drives together led to a disappointment for the rookie back. The Eagles will be in serious danger of falling behind quickly against the Rams next week, so Adams will be a risky FLEX option if Doug Peterson abandons the run again.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams gets 20 carries against the Redskins.

Adams gained 85 yards on his 20 attempts in tonight's win, working as the clear lead ball-carrier ahead of Corey Clement, Darren Sproles, and Wendell Smallwood. The undrafted rookie was stuffed at the goal line on a questionable fourth-down play call in the first half, but he ran well overall and picked up positive yardage when he received good blocking. Adams, who entered the game with a hip injury but was no-doubt going to play, appeared to grab at his hip a few times throughout the game, but it didn't appear to limit him much. He'll be in the FLEX mix as a potential 20-carry guy next week against the Cowboys.

Josh Adams scores against the Giants.

Adams carried 22 times for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 12 win, as the team finally committed to the running game, which clearly wore down the Giants defense and helped lead to a big comeback victory. The score came at the goal line, and Adams had another touchdown (52 yards where he showed his solid speed) called back on a questionable holding call. The 22 carries were by far a career-high for the undrafted rookie, as he hadn't hit double-digit carries in a game yet this season. Adams looks to be on the RB2 radar after this commitment to the running game.

Josh Adams scores first NFL touchdown in Eagles' loss.

In the second quarter when the game was relatively close at 17-0, Adams took a carry up the middle for a 28-yard score, showing his excellent speed for his size. Overall, Adams carried seven times for 53 yards and a touchdown along with three receptions for 19 yards. He's being treated as Philadelphia's clear lead back at the moment, so he's a strong fantasy option against the Giants in Week 12.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams gets seven carries against the Cowboys.

Adams gained 47 yards on his seven attempts, including a long of 27 yards, in the Sunday night loss. The Eagles are again going to say they will get Adams the ball more, but he can't be trusted as more than a FLEX option until it actually happens. He has a lot of upside on fantasy rosters, though.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams gets ten touches against the Jaguars.

The undrafted rookie got an extended look as a runner ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, carrying nine times for 61 yards along with one reception for six yards. The Notre Dame product ran well downhill, and he had a long run of 21 yards in the win. Adams nearly had a costly fumble late in the game, but it was overturned after a replay review. Adams received more carries than Wendell Smallwood (eight) and Corey Clement (four), but it's unclear if he'll continue getting more carried moving forward. He's worth a look as a pickup, especially in deeper leagues.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams rushed four times for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Adams has looked good when given opportunities, but fantasy relevancy doesn't look like it will happen without an injury to Wendell Smallwood or Corey Clement. The Notre Dame product can stay on the waiver wire in redraft leagues heading into a matchup against the Jaguars.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams gets one touch against the Vikings.

Adams received a third-down toss that went for -1 yards. Perhaps the Eagles were trying to catch the Vikings off guard, but Adams probably doesn't have the acceleration to beat Minnesota's stingy defense on most occasions. The rookie running back is just a dynasty option for now.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

Josh Adams plays well in his NFL debut.

After getting called up from the practice squad earlier in the week, Adams received a good amount of work with Jay Ajayi (back) out, carrying six times for 30 yards. The undrafted rookie from Notre Dame showed flashes that made him a Heisman Trophy candidate for much of last season, as he gets downhill for positive yardage if the holes are there. We'll see what happens with Adams if Ajayi is back healthy for Week 4.

The Eagles are promoting Josh Adams to the practice squad, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Somehow undrafted out of Notre Dame, the Eagles were able to get Adams through waivers and onto the practice squad after a solid preseason with the team. Now, he's getting a crack on the 53-man roster and could be immediately active on game day this weekend against the Colts. Adams is someone to keep an eye on in dynasty leagues in particular, with Jay Ajayi due to become a free agent this offseason.

The Eagles signed Josh Adams to the practice squad.

The undrafted rookie running back from Notre Dame was just waived yesterday after a solid preseason, but he got through waivers and will remain with Philadelphia on the practice squad. He's someone to keep an eye on, particularly in dynasty leagues.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

The Eagles waived Josh Adams.

The undrafted rookie from Notre Dame played well this preseason, but the Eagles have a deep running back group. If he clears waivers, he's almost certain to land on Philadelphia's practice squad.

Josh Adams | Free Agent RB

The Eagles have officially signed former Notre Dame running back Josh Adams as an undrafted free agent.

As a true junior with the Fighting Irish last season, Adams was thought of as a Heisman candidate for much of the season. He ran for 1,430 yards and nine touchdowns on 206 carries during the year. With the Eagles, Adams will look to carve out a role as a big back that could take some of the touches left by LeGarrette Blount's departure, but he might have an uphill battle to make the final roster.
