He "added" a four-yard reception. Gray out-touched Denard Robinson, but did nothing with his looks. Signed off the Dolphins' practice squad two weeks ago, Gray didn't show anything that should guarantee a spot on the Jags' 90-man roster. Jan 3 - 7:45 PM

Jaguars OC Greg Olson said the "plan" is to "get a good look" at RB Jonas Gray in the Week 17 finale against the Texans.

Denard Robinson has been a massive disappointment in two spot starts in place of an injured T.J. Yeldon (knee), so the Jaguars want to see what Gray brings to the table as they head into the offseason. Gray rushed five times for 31 yards in Week 16 against the Saints, but 23 of those yards came on one carry. Gray and Robinson will likely split work against Houston with Gray (5'10/225) handling the early-down and Shoelace playing some pass downs.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said the team wanted to see what Jonas Gray could do in the second half against the Saints.

"I liked him," Bradley said. "In the second half, we said, ‘Let’s give him some more opportunities and see what he can do.’ He added a little bit of burst." Gray finished with 31 yards on five carries, but most of that was driven by a 23 yard gain. Gray still out-gained Denard Robinson by 11 yards on one fewer carry. T.J. Yeldon's status for the season finale is up in the air, but Gray likely earned a bigger role if Yeldon is forced to sit again.

Jonas Gray rushed five times for 31 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 loss to the Saints.

Gray actually out-rushed Denard Robinson 31-20, but was out-touched 11-5. With T.J. Yeldon (knee) potentially returning for Week 17, Gray will remain off the fantasy radar against the Texans.

Jaguars signed RB Jonas Gray from the Dolphins practice squad.

The Jaguars have yet to give a firm timetable on T.J. Yeldon (sprained knee), but this move strongly suggests he will miss at least this week. Denard Robinson will start and should be a nearly every-snap back as long as Yeldon is out. Robinson is easily the best waiver add of the week and will be a solid RB2 against Atlanta.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Atlanta has been very beatable on the ground, allowing the 2nd most FPPG to RBs, so Denard Robinson may be worth a long look as a value option if Yeldon is ruled out. In the only game Yeldon missed this year, Robinson finished with just 10 touches while Toby Gerhart (who is on season-ending IR) saw 12. Blake Bortles threw it 53 times with the Jags playing from behind which very much skewed the rushing totals, so we can expect a more balanced approach. Robinson has far more upside than Gray, who we'd only expect to act in a complementary role, if Yeldon sits out.

Dolphins waived RB Jonas Gray.

Miami re-signed C Sam Brenner in a corresponding move. Gray had been serving as Lamar Miller's backup, but the successful return of rookie Jay Ajayi made Gray expendable. Gray should find himself on the bottom of another team's depth chart very soon. Perhaps the Patriots, who just lost Dion Lewis for the season, will be interested in a reunion.

Jonas Gray caught 4-of-5 targets for 50 yards in Miami's Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

He "added" two rushes for one yard. Gray's missed connection was a brutal drop. Most of his yardage came deep into garbage time. Gray is firmly established as Lamar Miller's handcuff, but has zero standalone fantasy value.

Jonas Gray rushed seven times for 27 yards and caught a 12-yard pass in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Titans.

Gray handled the seven carries to Lamar Miller's 19 and Damien Williams' two. If something happened to Miller, the Fins would likely utilize Gray and Williams in a committee, lessening the handcuff appeal of both power-back Gray and more versatile Williams.

Dolphins signed RB Jonas Gray from their practice squad.

With Lamar Miller battling an ankle injury, Gray is added as insurance. Miller says he'll play Week 3 against the Bills, but the Dolphins are near the bottom of the league in rushing. Gray is unlikely to see the field much this Sunday.

Dolphins signed RB Jonas Gray to their practice squad.

Gray was promoted from the practice squad in time for Week 1 but didn't play in the opener. He lost his spot in the Dolphins' backfield to Raheem Mostert.

Dolphins waived RB Jonas Gray.

C Sam Brenner has also been cut loose. Gray's release comes the same day as LaMike James', and clears a roster spot for Eagles practice-squad signee Raheem Mostert. Gray ran well for the Patriots both last season and this summer. He should eventually find a home on someone's 53-man roster.

Dolphins promoted RB Jonas Gray from the practice squad.

He was added to the Dolphins' practice squad earlier this week after going unclaimed on waivers. Miami needed some depth at running back with Jay Ajayi (cracked ribs) sidelined. If Gray suits up Sunday against the Redskins, he won't see more than few snaps behind workhorse Lamar Miller.

Dolphins signed RB Jonas Gray to the practice squad.

It's been a long, hard fall for Gray since his 201-yard performance against the Colts last November. The 25 year old had a strong preseason, so he might not have to wallow on the practice squad for long. Miami has shaky running back depth behind starter Lamar Miller.

Free agent RB Jonas Gray is scheduled to work out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Gray was waived by the Patriots at final cuts. Tennessee traded a seventh-round pick for Terrance West on Sunday, but they may be interested in adding another middling back to their rotation. The Titans currently have five running backs, five tight ends and four wide receivers on their roster.

Former Patriots RB Jonas Gray went unclaimed on waivers.

Gray is now an unrestricted free agent, and lacks practice squad eligibility after appearing in eight games last year. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry with the 2014 Pats and should top many teams' emergency lists at running back.
