Player Outlook
Until McNichols finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • 49ers' Jeremy McNichols: Injures hamstring

    McNichols (hamstring) will likely be out for San Francisco's preseason finale against the Chargers, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports. McNichols was competing for the third-string role with Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price and could now be in danger of not making the final roster because of this injury. The 27-year-old had rushed for 36 yards on 10 carries in the first two preseason games.

    McNichols signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. McNichols missed all of the 2022 season with a shoulder injury and was non-tendered by the Steelers in March. The 27-year-old last suited up for the Titans in 2021, seeing 41 carries for 156 yards in 14 contents. He'll now work to earn a role in San Francisco's backfield.

  • Jeremy McNichols: Not tendered by Pittsburgh

    The Steelers didn't tender an offer to McNichols as a restricted free agent Wednesday, Alan Saunders of reports. This was an easy decision after McNichols missed all of 2022 with a shoulder injury. He wasn't worth the $2.6 million tender and will now head to the open market.

  • Steelers' Jeremy McNichols: Placed on IR

    Pittsburgh placed McNichols (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. McNichols signed with the Steelers to compete for a depth role in the backfield, but he lasted less than a week into camp before suffering what was apparently a severe shoulder injury. The Steelers signed Master Teague in a corresponding move to restore numbers in the backfield heading into the preseason.

  • Steelers' Jeremy McNichols: Bangs up shoulder

    McNichols is being evaluated for a shoulder injury, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Another update on the injury will likely surface once its severity is determined. McNichols is battling for a depth role in Pittsburgh's backfield after suiting up for 30 games with the Titans over the previous two seasons.

  • Steelers' Jeremy McNichols: Joins Pittsburgh backfield

    McNichols has signed with the Steelers. The 2017 fifth-rounder gives the Steelers added running back depth following the team's release of Trey Edmunds. McNichols is coming off a 2021 campaign with the Titans in which he carried 41 times for 156 yards over 14 games while adding 28 catches on 38 targets for 240 yards and a TD. With Pittsburgh, McNichols will compete with Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland for snaps and touches behind the team's undisputed top back, Najee Harris.

  • Jeremy McNichols: Let go Thursday

    McNichols was released by the Falcons on Thursday. The 5-foot-9 running back was dropped along with receiver Austin Trammell in corresponding moves to make room for the additions of offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison and defensive lineman Jalen Dalton. McNichols spent the past two seasons playing for Tennessee, accumulating 655 yards on 116 total touches over 30 regular-season games during that span.

  • Falcons' Jeremy McNichols: Signs with ATL

    McNichols signed with the Falcons on Thursday, Michael Rothstein of reports. This will be the eighth team McNichols has spent time with since the Bucs made him a fifth-round pick in 2017, and it'll be the fifth team he's played a regular-season game for if he makes it that far. His chances are better in Atlanta than they would be practically anywhere else, joining a backfield that otherwise has Cordarrelle Patterson, Damien Williams, fifth-round rookie Tyler Allgeier and Qadree Ollison as the top candidates for jobs. Patterson is the lock of the bunch, but he's unlikely to handle a workhorse role, leaving room for someone else to get regular touches. McNichols has made 30 of his 34 regular-season appearances in a Titans uniform, mostly handling passing downs for Tennessee the past two seasons. Last year, he had nearly as many targets (38) as carries (41), even though Derrick Henry missed half the season with a foot injury.

  • Jeremy McNichols: Waived Saturday

    McNichols was waived by the Titans on Saturday. The Titans opted to elevate Jordan Wilkins from the practice squad, signaling the end of McNichols' tenure with the franchise. The fifth-year running back had a relatively critical role earlier in the season after Derrick Henry's season-ending foot injury, which ultimately allowed the scatback to set career highs in both receptions and receiving yards. The emergence of Dontrell Hilliard relegated McNichols to an offensive afterthought recently as the 26-year-old tallied just nine carries and zero receptions over the last two weeks.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Minimal role

    McNichols rushed the ball twice for 14 yards in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins. McNichols was the third back in Tennessee's rotation as he took the field for only six offensive snaps. His playing time could tick up in different game script given that his primary role for the team comes from work as a receiver out of the backfield. However, that may not come in Week 18, as the Titans should be favored in a matchup at Houston.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Leads Tennessee in rushing

    McNichols recorded seven rushes for 31 yards in Thursday's 20-17 win over San Francisco. McNichols finished second on the team with seven rushing attempts, with only D'Onta Foreman (nine carries) earning more opportunity. He was fairly efficient his work, posting four gains of five or more yards on the ground. Contrary to his encouraging work as a rusher, McNichols' role as a pass catcher out of the backfield evaporated nearly entirely -- he was targeted only once and did not record a reception. Given the return of A.J. Brown (chest), McNichols' volume in the passing attack may not return in the team's final two games this season. That makes McNichols a difficult option to rely upon given his lack of bankable volume in Tennessee's split backfield.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Earns nine touches

    McNichols rushed six times for 26 yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to the Steelers. He added three receptions for 25 yards. McNichols served as the Titans' third back, as he worked behind both D'Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard. Even so, Tennessee's run-heavy attack and lack of healthy wide receivers played to McNichols' advantage. His longest gain of the day came on a 12-yard reception, though he also chipped in a gain of nine on the ground. In two games since returning from a pair of absences, McNichols has combined to record 14 rush attempts and three receptions. His involvement in the offense gives him a safe floor but a very low ceiling as the third back on the depth chart.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Practicing fully

    McNichols (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. After missing the Titans' last two games prior to the team's Week 13 bye, McNichols looks poised to play Sunday against the Jaguars. That said, McNichols' role upon his return to the lineup is somewhat unclear, with D'Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard both having performed capably in Tennessee's last outing, a 36-13 loss to the Patriots in Week 12.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Misses practice

    McNichols (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday. With McNichols absent from Sunday's 22-13 loss to Houston, the Titans deployed Dontrell Hilliard as their passing-down back. That role that came with a 63 percent snap share and 10 targets, a workload range McNichols has flirted with just once this season (40 percent and 12 targets Week 4 against the Jets). In any case, one or the two will handle the role this Sunday in New England, where yardage and touchdowns may be in short supply even if the target volume checks out. The Titans also have major issues at wide receiver, where A.J. Brown (chest) and Marcus Johnson (hamstring) have now rejoined the lengthy list of injured players.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Remains absent Thursday

    McNichols (concussion) wasn't spotted at Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. McNichols has now missed consecutive practices, putting his status for Sunday's game against the Texans in doubt. D'Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson are in line to split early-down snaps in Tennessee's backfield against Houston, though it's not clear which running back would absorb the passing-down duties normally occupied by McNichols should he sit Sunday.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Dealing with concussion

    McNichols didn't practice Wednesday after being diagnosed with a concussion, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. McNichols likely sustained the head injury at some point during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Saints, and he'll now have to hope to navigate the NFL's five-step protocol ahead of a this weekend's game against the Texans. If McNichols suits up Week 11, he would likely be in line mostly for pass-catching work, with Adrian Peterson and D'Onta Foreman both seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order for carries out of the Tennessee backfield while Derrick Henry (foot) remains on injured reserve.
