Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Corey Clement ran the ball three times for eight yards in the Super Bowl, adding four catches for 100 yards and a touchdown. Clement had three enormous plays through the air, including a touchdown that the NFL might have considered overturning. Clement was an undrafted rookie, but he showed plenty this season and should have a role in next year's backfield.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Corey Clement could be a darkhorse for some nice production in the Super Bowl on Sunday. Clement has carved out a role as the team's third-down and passing-play back. If the Eagles were to fall behind early on Sunday, they would undoubtedly go all out in trying to get back into the game. That would involve a lot of Clement in the backfield, heading out to catch short passes. He is a risky play of course, because he won't be all that involved in a close game nor in one that Philadelphia takes control of. He's a risky dart throw, but one that could have some nice upside if the Eagles fall behind by a large deficit.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Corey Clement is not a DFS or playoff-pool option for the NFC Championship Game against the Minnesota Vikings. Clement did see more of the field last week than most people expected, showing up on a lot of third downs, but he still didn't do enough to promote any kind of confidence in him going up against an elite defense. Owners of Clement in dynasty and keeper leagues should be happy with the rookie, but he's not a starting option in any format this week.
