Jets | Lots of rest for Matt Forte

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:42:46 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte should receive plenty of rest this season with RBs Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson also in the mix.

Fantasy Tip: It's to be expected that a running back at Forte's age and with Forte's workload wouldn't be a bellcow anymore. He's still the Jets' top option at the position, though, and should be viewed as a high-end RB2.

Jets | Big workload for Bilal Powell?

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:16:56 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is expected to see a lot of touches this season, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello.

Fantasy Tip: Powell will play behind Matt Forte, but he played behind Chris Ivory last year and still excelled. The versatile running back has more value in PPR leagues after catching 47 passes last season. He's a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 option in those formats.

Jets | Bilal Powell contract details

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 17:03:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Bilal Powell's contract is three years in length and worth $11.25 million, including $6 million fully guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Powell will steal away a decent amount of playing time from newly acquired RB Matt Forte, specifically in passing situations. Powell was one of the most underrated PPR running backs last season and should be in the RB3 conversation in PPR formats.

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 09:51:55 -0800

Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (Jets) is re-signing with the New York Jets Thursday, March 10, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are also signing Khiry Robinson, and Powell will likely have to battle him for about half the touches that won't go to Matt Forte. Powell is an RB4 that could emerge into an RB3.

Broncos | Denver eyeing Bilal Powell

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 11:54:34 -0800

The Denver Broncos are interested in New York Jets impending free-agent RB Bilal Powell as Powell's market begins to intensify. The Jets are still interested in bringing him back, too.

Fantasy Tip: Powell had 70 carries for 313 yards and one touchdown for the Jets in 2015, and he's had just five total touchdowns in the last two seasons. Powell would represent a complementary back in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme in Denver and is unlikely to carry much fantasy value.

Jets | Bilal Powell in focus for Gang Green

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 21:35:37 -0800

Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (Jets) has come into focus for the New York Jets, as they have already lost RB Chris Ivory to the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots are also interested in Powell's services, according league sources.

Fantasy Tip: Powell might find the situation in New York more tenable now that he would be at or near the top of the depth chart, perhaps seeing a majority of the touches.

Jets | New York has questions at running back

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:41:57 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will all be unrestricted free agents this offseason if they are not re-signed.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is expected not to re-sign, and it's unlikely that the Jets would let their three best running backs walk away. If Powell stays and the Jets don't sign anyone else, he could be the featured back in New York's offense next season.

Jets | Bilal Powell inactive for Week 17

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 08:51:13 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ankle) will not play in Week 17's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Powell ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had been outplaying Chris Ivory ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) recently but he was unable to practice all week. Ivory should be considered a midrange option in FantasyScore versus the Bills.
