Josh Adams
23-Year-Old Running BackRB
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Facing a six-month timeline in his recovery from January shoulder surgery, Adams could be stashed on the PUP list if the Eagles don't want to lose him but also don't have a job for him on the 53-man roster. The offseason additions of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders leave the team with a crowded backfield, forcing Adams, Corey Clement (knee), Wendell Smallwood, Boston Scott and Donnel Pumphrey to compete for one or two spots. Clement is the best bet to secure a job, while Scott and Pumphrey are the longshots. Adams lands somewhere in the middle -- along with Smallwood -- despite making five starts as an undrafted rookie last season. Read Past Outlooks

Adams didn't see the field in Week 17 and finishes the season with eight carries for 12 yards and no catches in three games played.
ANALYSIS
Adams didn't make much of an impact after being called up from the Jets' practice squad. The 23-year-old running back is under contract for next season at the minimum cap hit of just $660,000, so he should compete for a depth spot behind Le'Veon Bell in 2020.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jay Ajayi is in a contract year and has long believed to have a problematic knee, and Corey Clement doesn't project as a long-term starter for the most part. Adams doesn't project as a traditional starter, either, but the athleticism and especially the skill set imply a player capable of providing fantasy value if he sees a significant role. Adams was highly explosive at Notre Dame, where he ran for 3,201 yards (6.7 YPC) and 20 touchdowns in 37 games, adding 41 receptions for 336 yards and two touchdowns. He would ideally add at least 10 pounds to his frame because he's currently thin at 6-foot-2, 213 pounds, but in the meantime he has encouraging speed and quickness with a 4.51-second 40-yard dash and 6.78-second three-cone drills. NFL.com even cited a top game speed of 22.37 miles per hour for Adams in one game last year, which would generally compare more to 4.4 speed.
