Jets | Bilal Powell fighting for roster spot

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is in need of a strong training camp and preseason to stick around, as the team brought in RBs Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson during the offseason. Powell and RB Joe McKnight are fighting for jobs, and McKnight has value due to his skills as a kick returner. Powell's value increases if Goodson is suspended for his recent arrest.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Powell makes the roster, he still has an uphill climb to get into the mix for any meaningful touches. Avoid Powell on draft day in all fantasy leagues unless injuries decimate the team's RB corps during the preseason to open up a more prominent role.
