Corey Clement News

Defects

Clement is signing a one-year deal with Dallas, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Clement will come to Dallas as the No. 3 back, unlikely to get snaps on offense unless Ezekiel Elliott or Tony Pollard suffers an injury or the Cowboys are in the closing minutes of a blowout. Clement mostly figures to make his mark on special teams -- something he did for the Eagles in 2017 before emerging as an unlikely rookie hero in the Super Bowl. While he hasn't done anything of interest to fantasy managers since his debut campaign, Clement did log 268 snaps on special teams for the Eagles last year. He then landed with the Giants this offseason, but Big Blue settled on Devontae Booker and Gary Brightwell as the depth options behind Saquon Barkley (knee). Meanwhile, Clement has now been rostered by three of the four NFC East teams this calendar year.

Cut free by G-Men

The Giants cut Clement on Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Early camp reports hinted at Clement pushing Devontae Booker for a backup role, but it instead seems the former Eagle was surpassed by rookie sixth-round pick Gary Brightwell. Clement can block, catch passes and play special teams; it's his lack of explosiveness as a runner that seems to be the issue.

Gets four carries

Clement rushed four times for 24 yards in Sunday's 22-20 preseason loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Clement outplayed starter Devontae Booker, who finished with just 17 yards on eight total touches. Nonetheless, as the regular season approaches, it still appears Booker is the favorite to serve as Saquon Barkley's (knee) top understudy. However, if Barkley is slowed at all, Clement could find more opportunities to see the field, beginning with Week 1's matchup versus the Broncos.

Leads in carries

Clement rushed nine times for 30 yards in Sunday's 17-13 preseason loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Clement entered the game after Devontae Booker started and managed 40 yards and a touchdown from eight touches over New York's first two drives. Although Clement protected the ball after fumbling in his first preseason outing, Booker's superior performance should keep him as the Giants' top backup behind Saquon Barkley heading into next weekend's exhibition finale.

Making bid for backup role

Clement is outperforming Devontae Booker at Giants training camp, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger.

Analysis: With Saquon Barkley (knee) on the PUP list, Booker has mostly worked as the top running back in practice, as was expected after he signed a two-year, $6 million contract in March. Clement settled for a one-year, $990,000 deal a couple months later, but it sounds like he's now pushing Booker for what could be the Week 1 starting job (if Barkley isn't ready). The Giants also have Alfred Morris and rookie sixth-round pick Gary Brightwell in the backfield, though the latter reportedly hasn't seen many reps on offense at training camp.

Signs with Big Blue

Clement has signed a contract with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Clement appeared in 15 games with the Eagles last season but played a minimal role on offense, totaling just 26 touches. He featured more prominently on special teams, where Clement has some experience returning punts and kicks. Clement's versatility should give him the inside track when it comes to securing a spot on the Giants' roster, but he'll need to earn that spot in preseason.

Mostly sees special-teams duty

Clement finished the 2020 season with 20 carries for 75 yards and a touchdown while adding five catches on six targets for 25 more yards.

Analysis: Clement was only involved in the offense when Miles Sanders was out. Even then, it was only minimal involvement as pint-sized Boston Scott took over as the lead back in those several games. The 27-year-old former Super Bowl hero now heads into unrestricted free agency.

Jan 21, 2021 12:25 AM EST


No offensive role Sunday

Clement didn't play an offensive snap during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The 26-year-old has two carries for 11 yards and a touchdown while playing only five offensive snaps since Miles Sanders returned Week 10. Clement should continue to see sporadic offensive opportunities while Sanders and Boston Scott remain healthy.

Lifted from COVID list

The Eagles activated Clement from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: Clement was a high-risk close contact when he was placed on the list. The 26-year-old running back will be available for Monday's game against the Seahawks. The Wisconsin product isn't expected to play much if Boston Scott (abdomen) is active.

Nov 27, 2020 1:47 PM EST


Moves to COVID list

Clement was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Analysis: Upon discovering Thursday morning that a player within the organization tested positive for COVID-19, Philadelphia shifted a total of five players to the inactive list -- including fellow depth skill-position players J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and John Hightower. The 26-year-old Clement has not been heavily integrated into the offense this season, collecting 19 rush attempts and four receptions over his nine appearances. He missed 12 games last year after being placed on IR with a shoulder injury.

Just one snap Sunday

Clement rushed once for five yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Clement is primarily a special-teams player with Miles Sanders now back healthy. Even in the three games this season in which the 26-year-old has seen double-digit snaps, he has failed to top six carries or 24 rushing yards.

Nov 17, 2020 12:12 AM EST


Gets six touches in win

Clement rushed five times for 24 yards and caught one of his two targets for four yards in Sunday's 23-9 win over Dallas.

Analysis: Clement saw at least 18 snaps on offense for the second straight week with Miles Sanders still nursing a knee issue. As expected, Boston Scott still significantly outpaced the Wisconsin product with more than double the playing time and touches. He'll likely revert to a role primarily on special teams if Sanders is healthy coming out of the Eagles' bye in Week 9.

Nov 2, 2020 11:46 PM EST


Gets three touches in win

Clement rushed twice for nine yards and caught his lone target for 12 yards in Thursday's 22-21 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Clement saw just 18 snaps on offense even with Miles Sanders inactive due to a knee injury. Boston Scott worked as the lead back in the win, playing 56 total snaps on offense. It doesn't look like Clement will see much action unless both Sanders and Scott are forced to miss time.

Oct 24, 2020 12:18 AM EST


Sees light use Week 6

Clement failed to corral his lone target in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Clement played seven offensive snaps in the contest, his most since the Eagles' Week 1 loss to Washington, when Miles Sanders was sidelined with a hamstring injury. Sanders exited Sunday's contest midway through the third quarter with a knee injury that's expected to keep him out for 1-to-2 weeks, paving the way for Clement to see a slightly expanded workload Week 7 in a Thursday night matchup with the Giants. That said, Boston Scott is likely to operate as the lead option in the Eagles' backfield committee while Sanders is out, so Clement probably can't be counted on to take on double-digit touches if the game proves to be reasonably competitive throughout.

Oct 19, 2020 1:07 PM EST


Two carries in win

Clement rushed twice for three yards in Sunday's 25-20 win over San Francisco.

Analysis: Clement saw just four snaps in the win. The good news for the Wisconsin product is that at least he has a good shot to get the ball when in the game. The downside is that he has been on the field for a grand total of 13 offensive plays over the last three games.

Oct 5, 2020 3:26 PM EST


Sees just six snaps Sunday

Clement rushed three times for eight yards in Sunday's 23-23 tie with the Bengals.

Analysis: Clement once again played sparingly behind Miles Sanders and saw just six snaps on offense, seven fewer than Boston Scott. Perhaps his most notable contribution to the game was an unnecessary roughness penalty on a second-quarter punt that set the Bengals up at the Eagles' 38-yard line, enabling Cincinnati to kick a field goal just five plays later for their first points of the game. With Sanders healthy, the 25-year-old looks like he'll primarily be a special-teams contributor for the foreseeable future.

Sep 29, 2020 12:55 AM EST


Resumes practicing in full

Clement (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Clement was held out of Wednesday's practice entirely due to an illness, but he's already managed to return in full capacity. He'll suit up as Philadelphia's third running back, behind Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, versus the Bengals on Sunday.

Sep 24, 2020 2:39 PM EST


No practice due to illness

Clement did not practice Wednesday due to an illness.

Analysis: Clement should manage to suit up against the Bengals on Sunday as long as he's able to shake his illness before the contest. The 25-year-old didn't see any touches Week 2 with Miles Sanders back in the lineup, so Clement's status won't carry much of a fantasy impact one way or another.

Sep 23, 2020 2:24 PM EST


Does little with eight touches

Clement carried six times for 19 yards and caught both his targets for an additional two yards during Sunday's 27-17 loss to Washington.

Analysis: In the absence of Miles Sanders (hamstring), Clement received his first offensive touches since the 2018 season. He averaged an underwhelming 3.2 yards per carry and did next to nothing as a pass catcher, outside of an eight-yard gain. Clement could play a role next Sunday against the Rams if Sanders remains out, but even if he does he seems like a longshot for notable fantasy production.

Sep 13, 2020 1:54 PM EST


Increased duties on tap

Clement is slated for an increased role in Sunday's game versus Washington following news that Miles Sanders (hamstring) has been ruled out, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Boston Scott is expected to be the main beneficiary of Sanders' absence, but Clement should garner a decent amount of touches as well. While the 25-year-old running back barely played last year, he's been a formidable depth option and has averaged 4.1 yards per carry in his career while displaying solid pass-catching abilities. He's worth fantasy consideration in deeper formats.
