Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

The 49ers claimed Trenton Cannon.

Cannon was recently waived by the Ravens after playing for Baltimore on Monday night in Week 1. Cannon will help make up for the loss of Raheem Mostert, but his contributions might come on special teams more than offense. Ultimately, Cannon is a better real-life contributor to his teams than a fantasy asset.

The Ravens signed Trenton Cannon.

Cannon will help fill the No. 3 running back role immediately, but his biggest role for the Ravens will likely come on special teams. With Le'Veon Bell likely to get called up to the active roster at some point, Cannon is not a highly recommended fantasy add.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

The Jets placed Trenton Cannon on injured reserve.

Cannon is dealing with a foot/ankle injury. The 25-year-old running back mostly contributes on special teams for the Jets, so this is a loss for them in real life but not a move that has huge fantasy implications.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon rushed twice for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to New England.

He didn't catch his only target. Cannon's rookie campaign finishes with 38 carries for 113 yards (3.0 YPC) and 17 receptions for 144 yards. Already turning 25 in July, Cannon won't be assured of a roster spot under a new coaching staff.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets three touches against the Packers.

Cannon had two carries for four yards and one reception for five yards in the Jets' Week 16 loss. Elijah Mcguire (17 touches, two touchdowns) is obviously the running back to play for the Jets heading into the season finale next week versus New England.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets ten touches in Week 15.

Cannon carried seven times for 13 yards and caught three passes for 24 yards against the Texans. The rookie running back had a key drop on a third-down pass in the flat, but it was good to see him bounce back the next play and make a nice tackle in punt coverage. Cannon is just a deep-league FLEX option for the third week of the fantasy playoffs next Sunday.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon scores against the Bills.

Cannon had five carries for three yards and a touchdown along with one reception for four yards in the Jets' Week 14 win. It was the first career touchdown for the rookie running back, and hopefully it will be the first of many. Even if Isaiah Crowell (foot) is out in Week 15, Cannon will be difficult to trust in fantasy lineups against the Texans with Elijah McGuire ahead of him on the depth chart.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon handles five touches in loss to the Titans.

Cannon rushed four times for 18 yards and caught a seven-yard pass in a 26-22 defeat. The rookie might be more involved down the stretch, but he is unlikely to become a fantasy contributor in 2018.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets one touch in Week 12.

Cannon caught one pass for -3 yards against the Patriots. The rookie running back isn't getting enough work to be a fantasy option right now.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets five touches in Week 10.

Cannon carried four times for 30 yards and added one reception for five yards against the Bills. The rookie running back (along with Elijah McGuire) might be passing Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart, but he's not a highly-recommended fantasy option after the Jets' Week 11 bye.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets one touch in Week 9.

Cannon caught one pass for 15 yards against the Dolphins. The rookie running back is down to No. 3 on the depth chart with Elijah McGuire now in the mix in the Jets backfield. Cannon's role may increase at the expense of Isaiah Crowell moving forward, though, as Crowell hasn't played well lately.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets nine touches against the Bears.

Cannon carried six times for ten yards and added three receptions for 12 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss. The rookie running back split work with Isaiah Crowell (14 touches, 38 yards), who couldn't get much going either. Cannon isn't a recommended FLEX option yet.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets six touches in Week 7.

Cannon carried two times for four yards and caught four passes for a team-high 69 yards against the Vikings. Cannon stepped up and played well when Bilal Powell left the game with a neck injury, and the sixth-round rookie running back could have a nice role moving forward if Powell misses more time. He's worth a look as a pickup, particularly in deep PPR leagues.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

Trenton Cannon gets time in first NFL game.

Cannon received a good amount of work toward the end of the game, carrying six times for 15 rushing yards while adding one reception for six receiving yards. The rookie running back is a distant third in the backfield at the moment, so he's just a fantasy option in dynasty leagues.

Trenton Cannon | 49ers RB

The Jets have selected Virginia State running back Trenton Cannon with the 204th pick (sixth round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Cannon has 4.41 speed with great explosiveness, but he needs to add weight to his frame to be more than a change-of-pace option at the next level. That said, the Jets have no established starter in the backfield, and he might have just as much talent as anyone else on the roster. We would target him late in dynasty leagues, and owners in redraft leagues should keep him on their radar this summer.
