Jets | Bilal Powell a bright spot

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:26:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell had nine carries for 32 yards and two catches for 14 yards against the Detroit Lions in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Powell could end up being the best weapon for a Jets offense lacking much firepower. He figures to be on the receiving end of plenty of dump-offs, and he is a legitimate RB2 candidate in PPR formats.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:38:48 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) will play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Powell missed some time because of a neck injury but will receive some playing time against the Lions. Powell will be sharing work with Matt Forte this season but should receive a majority of the touches. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Jets | Full practice for Bilal Powell

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:06:26 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Powell appears to be recovered from his neck injury and could see some playing time in the second preseason game. He probably will see most of the snaps at running back this season and will also be involved in the passing game. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 running back in point-per-receptions leagues.

Jets | Bilal Powell participates in practice

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 13:43:17 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) participated in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday, Aug. 15, after being absent from practice for about a week and a half.

Fantasy Tip: Powell is the Jets' running back to own this year, even if Matt Forte is healthy. Powell was a PPR machine in 2016 and there's no reason he can't be the same in 2017, especially in New York's abysmal offense that may be forced to pass a lot.

Jets | Bilal Powell, Matt Forte limited

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 15:30:08 -0700

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell (neck) and RB Matt Forte (hamstring) were limited to positional drills during practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Powell and Forte are making progress but they probably will miss the second preseason game. Both have a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season, but owners will need to monitor the situation. Powell could receive more of the snaps at running back this season, but Forte will also be involved in the offense. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back, while Forte is more of a No. 3 back.

Jets | Bilal Powell, Matt Forte unlikely to play

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 15:57:17 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) and RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 9, and are not expected to play in the preseason game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Powell and Forte continue to be sidelined by their injuries, so their status for the second preseason game is uncertain. They are expected to share work at running back this season, but Powell may see more touches in the offense. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in most standard leagues, while Forte could be a low-end No. 3 back.

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:07:10 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) and RB Bilal Powell (neck) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Forte and Powell have both missed several practices, but the team probably will not bring them back until they are 100 percent since they will have big roles in the offense. Both are expected to receive a solid amount of playing time, but Powell may receive more of the snaps during the season. Powell can be considered a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in leagues, while Forte could be a low-end No. 3 back.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see when Powell will be able to return to the field. Powell and Matt Forte probably will be sharing playing time this season, but Powell could be more involved in the offense because of his receiving ability. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in leagues.

Jets | Bilal Powell leaves practice early

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 14:47:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (chest) left practice early Friday, Aug. 4, because he got the wind knocked out of him, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Powell could miss a few days but should be fine moving forward. He should split time with Matt Forte this season and will be used as receiver out of the backfield. Owners should consider Powell as a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back that can also be a weekly flex option.

Jets | Backfield committee to be used by Jets

Tue, 23 May 2017 11:31:16 -0700

New York Jets RBs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell will serve as a two-man backfield committee this season, according to offensive coordinator John Morton. Morton added that the offensive gameplan will vary from week to week, but a timeshare is expected.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't positive news for Powell, who was expected by many to take over New York's backfield. He still could, but Forte won't be pushed aside easily. Powell remains the more valuable back from a fantasy perspective and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 with added profit in PPR leagues. Forte is more of a flex consideration, although he could see more goal-line carries.
