  • Jets' Bilal Powell: Ineffective in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell rushed 13 times for 35 yards in Sunday's 23-0 loss to Denver. The Broncos' defense dominated like old times, and the Jets could only muster three drives longer than a three-and-out the entire day. Powell only had one rush longer than two yards until the game was in full blowout mode late in the third quarter. It's not likely to get any better for the 29-year-old in Week 15 at New Orleans, especially with Bryce Petty possibly under center.

  • Jets' Bilal Powell: Leads backfield in touches
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell rushed 18 times for 48 yards and a touchdown and brought in two of three targets for two yards in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs. Powell's carry total was a team high, and he was able to score his first rushing touchdown since Week 4 with a one-yard surge into the end zone in the first quarter. The versatile 29-year-old has been nowhere near as involved as usual in the passing game this season, but he stands a chance of producing for fantasy owners during playoff season if he can continue seeing the type of robust workload he enjoyed Sunday.

  • Jets' Bilal Powell: Totals 46 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell carried the ball nine times for 34 yards and added a 12-yard catch during Sunday's 35-27 loss to Carolina. Despite a hobbled Matt Forte (knee), Powell didn't see an uptick in touches and struggled against a tough Carolina run defense. Though Powell has put up some nice numbers in spurts this season, especially with Forte out earlier in the year, but he's been more mediocre than good. Weeks 4 and 9 aside, Powell has averaged just 3.0 yards per carry this season.

  • Powell is expected to split snaps at running back with Matt Forte (knee) and Elijah McGuire in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Connor Hughes of reports. With the Jets labeling Forte as a game-time decision ahead of the Week 12 matchup, there was a chance Powell could serve as the clear lead back in the team's rushing attack, but Forte's availability means a timeshare will likely be in the works. The backfield committee hasn't been especially fruitful for any of the three players from a fantasy perspective over the last four games, with the backs combining for two touchdowns during that span and none of the trio clearing 100 total yards in any of those contests.

  • Jets' Bilal Powell: May lead backfield Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Powell could be the Jets' lead back Sunday against the Panthers, as Matt Forte (knee) is considered a game-time call. Outside of 190 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown Week 4 against the Jaguars, Powell hasn't taken advantage of Forte's other two absences this season, combining for 12 carries for 35 yards and five receptions (on seven targets) for 34 yards. In the event the Jets continue to manage Forte's knee injury and include him among the inactives this weekend, Powell will still have to contend with rookie Elijah McGuire, who has churned out 97 scrimmage yards the last two contests.
