The 14 rushing yards was Powell's lowest output since he rushed for 19 yards Week 8 against the Bengals. The Jets are back in action Week 15 at Carolina.
It's been a while since
A lot has changed since then, particularly Powell's role on offense. He's become more of a backup to Chris Ivory and has totaled more than 10 carries just twice in the last seven games. Though, Powell still appears to be a key back on passing downs, as he has had at least three catches six times this season.
Running backs have had decent success against the Raiders. In the the last 10 games against Oakland, running backs are averaging 98.1 rushing yards, 38 receiving yards and 18.5 Fantasy points per week. Dallas running backs torched Oakland for 145 rushing yards and three touchdowns Week 13.
The lack of being a featured back and touchdowns has really made Powell a poor Fantasy option. He's averaging just 3.3 Fantasy points in his last eight games. Despite the somewhat favorable matchup, Powell is just a desperation Fantasy start Week 14.
With Chris Ivory recovered from an ankle injury,
Powell rushed the ball just seven times, finishing with 34 yards in the game. He was featured more in the passing game than Ivory, however, hauling in three of five passes thrown his way for 25 yards.
Powell has mostly been involved in a timeshare recently, a trend that will likely continue in Week 14 against the Raiders.
