  • Powell carried 15 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Dolphins. He was not targeted in the passing game. With Matt Forte exiting the contest late in the third quarter with a toe injury, Powell took on the role of lead back and finished helping the Jets grind out a win. The 28-year-old's carry and yardage totals were both season highs, while his one-yard scoring run in the third quarter was his first touchdown of 2017. Powell was excellent during the tail end of last season on both occasions in which he saw over 20 carries, an opportunity he may have against the Jaguars in Week 4 if Forte remains sidelined.

  • Jets' Bilal Powell: Part of three-man committe
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell had six carries for 13 yards and zero catches on two targets in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders In addition to being outplayed by Matt Forte, the 28-year-old Powell ceded some work to sixth-round rookie Elijah McGuire, who picked up 36 yards on seven touches. Given their low likelihood of competing, the Jets have no good reason to remove McGuire from the offense. Powell thus seems to find himself as one part of a three-man committee in arguably the NFL's worst attack. It's not a role conducive to fantasy production as the Jets prepare for their home opener Week 3 against Miami.

  • Jets' Bilal Powell: Contained in opener
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell rushed seven times for 22 yards and caught five of six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Bills. Powell got 12 touches to Matt Forte's nine, but averaged a measly 3.1 yards per carry and 3.4 yards per reception. While his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield enables Powell to stay involved in all situations, the lack of a vertical threat among New York's wide receivers allows opponents to key on the runs and short passes that make up the bulk of his production.

  • Jets' Bilal Powell: Logs full practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell (ribs) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice. Powell already proved his health by playing in the third and fourth weeks of the preseason after dealing with a neck injury earlier in August. With Matt Forte still on the roster, the Jets may divide snaps pretty evenly between their two veteran backs in Sunday's opener in Buffalo. Considering a playoff appearance isn't in the cards this year, the team may eventually take a close look at sixth-round rookie Elijah McGuire later in the campaign.

  • Powell caught four of four targets for 110 yards and a score and added 32 yards on seven carries in Saturday's preseason loss to the Giants. Powell took a short dropoff from Bryce Petty and went 85 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Anything associated with the Jets this season will look like fantasy poison with their quarterback situation and overall lack of talent, but with that can be some opportunity. The lack of established receivers makes pass-catching backs like Powell all the more valuable in this offense. Look for Powell to top the 58 catches he had a season ago.
