Jets | NY's running back depth is solid

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 16:54:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is the team's starting running back, but the Jets' running back depth behind him with RBs Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy and Bilal Powell is impressive and will give QB Geno Smith a lot of help out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory should see most of the touches in this crowded backfield, and you should consider him an ideal RB3 in fantasy leagues. The Jets are unlikely to keep four running backs on roster, so Stacy and Powell might be fighting to stay on the final roster.

Jets | Zac Stacy on outside looking in?

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 19:31:43 -0700

New York Jets RB Zac Stacy is competing with RBs Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley (knee) and Bilal Powell for one of the running back spots on the 53-man roster in training camp and the preseason. According to beat writer Darryl Slater, Stacy is not projected to make the cut, although it could depend on the health of Ridley.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy went from fantasy starter to an afterthought in an awful hurry. If he can't crack the Jets, he could find work elsewhere. However, it appears his days as a serious fantasy option are already behind him.

Jets | Chris Ivory leads backfield

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:35:43 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is listed as the starting running back entering training camp, according to beat writer Rich Cimini's unofficial depth chart. RB Bilal Powell is the primary backup, and RB Zac Stacy is listed as the third running back. RB Stevan Ridley (knee) could figure in eventually, but he's expected to be limited at the start of camp.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory established himself in a muddy backfield that was expected to be led by Chris Johnson last year. Ivory has competition again this year, but he's a solid RB2 and takes a hit in PPR formats. Powell is a decent RB4 in PPR formats. It's hard to draft Stacy right now unless Powell and Ridley slip up.

Jets | Running back situation up in the air

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:51:04 -0700

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles said his team's running back situation may take until the preseason to sort out. RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Zac Stacy, Stevan Ridley and Daryl Richardson all have experience at the position, but no one has broken out yet.

Fantasy Tip: Bowles said the team could keep as many as four backs, but it begs the question of which one to start. For now, this situation is too volatile, but be prepared to move one up your draft board if someone looks explosive in preseason games.

Jets | Bilal Powell re-signs with Jets

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 08:36:28 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell resigned with the team Tuesday, March 10, according to a league source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Powell will not be the every down back for the Jets, but will likely see a lot of the third down work in 2015. He does not have much value at this point, other than maybe as a “handcuff” for whoever the starter is in 2015.

Bills | Bilal Powell headed to Buffalo?

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 15:01:03 -0700

Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (Jets) may be headed toward the Buffalo Bills and a reunion with head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Powell would be a second-tier RB in Buffalo, a change of pace for LeSean McCoy. He carries little fantasy value other than as a handcuff back in case McCoy gets hurt.

Jets | NY wants Bilal Powell back

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 04:23:10 -0800

Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (Jets) is wanted back by the New York Jets, who want to make a "sincere effort" to re-sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Powell is not the long-term answer at running back but was used a lot on third-down situations when healthy. Right now he carries minimal fantasy value, except maybe as a "handcuff" pick with the top running back on the team (whomever that turns out to be).

Jets | Bilal Powell on the field Friday

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 14:07:35 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Powell likely will regain his role on third down if he is able to play this week. He only costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners likely will be able to find other options to use.
