Jets | NYJ will use three running backs

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 11:16:42 -0700

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire will all receive playing time against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Fantasy Tip: Powell entered the season as the starting running back, but Forte leads the team in rushing yards with 69 yards. Powell and Forte can still be flex options in point-per-reception leagues because of their pass-catching abilities. Owners can avoid McGuire for the time being.

Jets | Bilal Powelll used sparingly

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:17:05 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell finished with six carries for 13 yards and didn't record a catch in a 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Powell is off to a slow start, and with Matt Forte earning touches and the offense struggling, you may want to sit Powell against the Dolphins in Week 3.

Jets | Rushing game limited in Week 1

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:55:14 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell and RB Matt Forte combined for just 38 yards Sunday, Sept. 10, in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Buffalo was near the bottom with its run defense last year, averaging over 133 yards given up on the ground. The fact the Bills did this to New York is not a good sign for either back. Forte may still be a flex option for deeper leagues, but the Jets' QB issues means the running game may not get the respect.

Jets | Bilal Powell takes part in practice

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 15:30:00 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Powell will be the starting running back for the Jets and should receive a majority of the touches at the position. He will also help in the passing game, which makes him valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Powell can be a solid No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Jets | Bilal Powell fully practices

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 12:54:14 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ribs) had his second straight day of full practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Powell is basically the only offensive hope for the Jets this season. Matt Forte seems to be wearing down and the passing game is a shell of itself compared to 2017. Powell is most valuable in PPR leagues after catching 58 passes a season ago. He's a solid RB2 this week versus a lackluster Buffalo Bills defense.

Jets | Bilal Powell practices in full

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 14:36:20 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ribs) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Powell appears to be on track to face the Bills in Week 1, and he is expected to split the touches with Matt Forte in the New York backfield. Powell rolled for 122 rushing yards with one receiving score in the regular season finale against the Bills in 2016. He has a little more fantasy appeal in PPR formats, and he'll see enough targets to make him a viable RB2 in those formats.

Jets | Matt Forte on the bubble?

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 14:44:36 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte is believed to be on the final roster bubble, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Cimini cites Forte's age and the presence of RB Bilal Powell and rookie RB Elijah McGuire as the main reasons for Forte's potential departure.

Fantasy Tip: It was recently reported that Forte was being shopped, so the fact that he may be cut shouldn't come as a huge surprise. This is Powell's backfield and McGuire has already shown he can be a promising backup. For now, view Forte as no more than a flex. He could still be picked up by another team if released.

Jets | Bilal Powell shines in passing game

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 19:33:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell had seven carries for 32 yards and four receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in a 32-31 loss to the New York Giants in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Powell will likely split carries with Matt Forte, but he should see enough action in the passing game to push for RB2 production in PPR formats. The Jets don't have any proven receivers, and they figure to be trailing a lot this year.

Jets | Bilal Powell a bright spot

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:26:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell had nine carries for 32 yards and two catches for 14 yards against the Detroit Lions in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Powell could end up being the best weapon for a Jets offense lacking much firepower. He figures to be on the receiving end of plenty of dump-offs, and he is a legitimate RB2 candidate in PPR formats.

Jets | Bilal Powell to play vs. Detroit

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:38:48 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) will play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Powell missed some time because of a neck injury but will receive some playing time against the Lions. Powell will be sharing work with Matt Forte this season but should receive a majority of the touches. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
