Jets RB Joe McKnight rushed once for two yards in the team's Week 17 loss to Buffalo.

McKnight gained 179 yards on 30 carries (5.97 YPC) this season, but was curiously underutilized as a change-of-pace back behind plodders Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell. McKnight, also the Jets' primary kickoff returner, is still just 24 years old and due an affordable $575,000 in 2013. While he's almost certainly not the answer for the Jets' feature back woes, McKnight deserves a longer look in a complementary role from New York's next offensive staff.
