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.

Jets | Bilal Powell dominated late

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:42:54 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell amassed 82 carries for 411 yards and two touchdowns while adding 21 catches for 141 yards over the final four games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: It's worth remembering Powell pulled off this feat with Bryce Petty and Ryan Fitzpatrick under center and behind a banged-up offensive line as well as a defense that didn't look like it cared at times toward the end of the season. Powell's strong finish should put him in line to begin 2017 no worse than a split backfield partner, although the film suggests he should start over Matt Forte. As such, Powell should be considered a high-upside flex for now.

Jets | Bilal Powell may see bigger role

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 15:12:16 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell may receive a bigger role in 2017 after he played well over the last month of the season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Powell rushed for 411 yards over the last four games of the season, which was third most in the league during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Powell could receive a chance to compete for the starting job during training camp but will still have a solid role in the offense even if he does not start. He will be involved in the running and passing game in 2017 and should be considered a middle-round pick in drafts.

Jets | Bilal Powell hits the century mark

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:42:38 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries in the Week 17 game against the Buffalo Bills. He also had three receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Powell proved he is more than capable of handling the full-time load when Matt Forte was unavailable. The Jets are likely to have plenty of upheaval on their roster in the offseason. If Powell finds himself competing for the starting tailback job, he could be a nice fantasy sleeper in 2017.

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 08:57:14 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (knee) will play in Week 17's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Powell only participated in one day of practice on a limited basis during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to start and receive the bulk of the carries this afternoon, making him worthy of consideration as a viable RB2 option in most fantasy formats.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Jets | Bilal Powell draws questionable tag

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 11:21:24 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (illness, knee) is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Powell is expected to start despite his ailment, but it is worth wondering how much the Jets will want to push him in a meaningless game. He possesses a great deal of fantasy upside this weekend in a plus-matchup if he is able to handle the full workload. Looking forward to 2017, Powell's strong finish may convince the Jets to use him in a true committee with Matt Forte.

Jets | Bilal Powell injury update

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 11:12:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (illness, knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29, because of an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Powell may be able to play in Week 17 if he recovers from his illness, so owners should check in his status closer to game time. He could receive most of the work if Matt Forte is ruled out and could be a No. 2 running back in some leagues.

Jets | Bilal Powell sits out

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 08:21:39 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Forte (knee) is also sitting out, which could thrust Brandon Wilds or Brandon Burks in position to see action in Week 17. Both would be really speculative flex options against the Buffalo Bills.
