2019 Fantasy Outlook
With the offseason acquisitions of Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery to join Elijah McGuire, there's not much room left for Cannon on the Jets' running back depth chart. All hope isn't lost for the 2018 sixth-rounder, however, as New York drafted him with the return game in mind and there's a special teams hole to be filled with Pro Bowler Andre Roberts now plying his trade in Buffalo. Cannon battled fumbling issues when used as a return man during the 2018 preseason, so he'll have to show that those are behind him in order to make the roster. Read Past Outlooks

Cannon will have to battle for a roster spot in camp, Matt Stypulkoski of reports.
New York's roster battle at running back will likely come down to the preseason, as the Jets currently have five capable bodies in camp and are unlikely to keep them all. Cannon played well in coverage on special teams as a rookie last season and has the potential to turn into a dangerous returner if he can curb his fumbling issues, making him a strong fit for the back end of the roster. He'll need to beat out at least one of Bilal Powell, Ty Montgomery or Elijah McGuire behind starter Le'Veon Bell.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cannon may not have the size to handle a starter's workload at the NFL level, but the rookie sixth-rounder out of Virginia State almost certainly won't be asked to. If the 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back sees the field at all, it will likely be in a change-of-pace passing down role or as a returner on special teams.
