Kendre Miller Returns From Seven-Game Absence, Leads Team In Rushing

Sunday, January 7, 5:18 PM

New Orleans Saints running back Kendre Miller missed a good chunk of the season with an ankle injury but returned to action for the first time since Week 9 to split backfield work with Jamaal Williams. Miller carried the ball 13 times for a team-high 73 yards and the first touchdown of his career. He also caught a pass for six yards. The rookie out of TCU was effective in his first time carrying the load and could carve out a role in the backfield heading into 2024.

Israel Abanikanda Stays Involved, Sees Six Touches

Friday, December 29, 12:25 PM

New York Jets rookie running back Israel Abanikanda has seemingly leapfrogged Dalvin Cook as the No. 2 back behind Breece Hall with the team playing out the string of another lost season in 2023. Abanikanda carried the ball twice for three yards and caught a season-high four passes on seven targets for 27 yards in Thursday night's 37-20 loss to the visiting Cleveland Browns. The 21-year-old rookie also lost a fumble on a kickoff return in the first half. Abanikanda saw a career-high nine carries in last week's win over the Washington Commanders and should be more involved behind Hall in the team's Week 18 regular season finale against the New England Patriots on Jan. 7. He figures to be more involved in a complementary role in 2024 and should be stashed in dynasty/keeper leagues.
