Jets | Bilal Powell pleases fantasy owners

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:39:14 -0800

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell run four times for 37 yards but added seven receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: That's a fine day in PPR leagues -- the only format in which Powell should be trusted with a lineup spot. New York gets a breather in Week 11.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 19:10:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed six times for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Cleveland Browns, and he added a three-yard reception on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Powell has struggled with turf toe, so this was a surprising performance on the ground. Normally Powell is more effective for fantasy owners in deeper PPR leagues.

Jets | Limited practice for Bilal Powell

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 15:11:41 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Powell took a backseat to Matt Forte again last week, but Forte could be limited in Week 8. Powell's fantasy ceiling will always be stinted if and as long as Forte plays, but Powell is still a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 option in PPR leagues.

Jets | Bilal Powell does not practice

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 14:58:40 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Powell is in any danger of missing the team's Week 8 game. He has received decent playing time this season and could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he plays.

Jets | Bilal Powell plays often

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 07:28:14 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell played 39 snaps in Week 6 for 72 percent of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Don't let the usage rate fool you because he rushed three times for 10 yards and caught three balls for 12 yards. Powell is worth holding onto, but he's not much of a flex option right now.

Jets | Bilal Powell helps out as receiver

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 13:40:45 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell caught six passes for 41 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5. He also rushed for 10 yards on four carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Powell will continue to see playing time as a receiver out of the backfield and could see more playing time if Forte does not improve his play. Powell should be considered a flex option at this point.

Jets | Bilal Powell rounding into form?

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 15:53:38 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell has caught 12 passes over the last two weeks after catching just three passes over the first two weeks of the season. He has also gained 56 rushing yards compared to just 43 rushing yards in the same time span.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Forte's touches have certainly decreased of late, perhaps in an effort by the Jets to preserve the veteran running back. Powell proved last season that he can be a force in the passing game. With Eric Decker sidelined, Powell should continue to see plenty of action, particularly in the passing game. He's worth a flex start in PPR formats against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that has yielded the most receiving yards to running backs (318) so far this year.

Jets | Bilal Powell ready to make an impact

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 18:30:02 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell has five carries and three catches through two games this season, but he said he will be ready to handle a bigger load whenever he is needed.

Fantasy Tip: Veteran Matt Forte is off to an excellent start, and as long as he remains healthy and productive, Powell is simply a handcuff.

Jets | Matt Forte still thriving

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:20:07 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte has shown no sign of old age or wear and tear yet in 2016. He is third in the NFL in rush attempts (52), second in rushing yards (196) and tied for first in rushing touchdowns (3). It was suspected that RB Bilal Powell would take away a good chunk of Forte's touches this season, but that has not been close to the case so far.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is a weekly RB1 in standard and PPR formats at this point. As for Powell, don't give up on him just yet, especially if you own both Forte and Powell. If anything were to happen to Forte then Powell would be the heir apparent in New York's backfield. Plus, the Jets may start considering that they're using Forte too much.
