Powell rushed 10 times for 30 yards and brought in one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers. He also lost a fumble.
Powell appeared primed for significant volume with Matt Forte (knee) sidelined, but his afternoon could largely be classified as a fantasy dud. The 29-year-old tailback's rushing yardage total mostly consisted of a game-long 21-yard scamper, while his production in the passing game was virtually non-existent. Rookie Elijah McGuire actually outpaced Powell in total touches by a 12-11 margin and 58 to 36 in total yards. Forte could well be back for a Week 12 tilt against the Panthers after the Jets' bye week, but if the veteran isn't quite ready to suit up, a 50-50 workload split between Powell and McGuire in that contest is certainly conceivable.
Meanwhile, Elijah McGuire is slated to see an increased role this weekend as the Jets' No. 2 running back. With Forte, who led the Jets with 14 carries for 77 yards Week 9, not in the mix, Powell looks like a viable lineup option Sunday, especially considering that he won't be competing with Forte for pass-catching duties out of the Jets backfield.
Powell rushed nine times for 74 yards in Thursday's 34-21 win over the Bills.
Powell was the ideal complement to lead back Matt Forte, nearly matching the latter's 77-yard rushing total despite seeing five fewer carries. The 8.2 yards that Powell averaged per tote was a welcome sight after he'd been stonewalled to the tune of 2.4 yards per carry against the Falcons in Week 8. The 29-year-old was also held without a catch for the first time in five contests and third time overall on the season. While he played more of a change-of-pace role Thursday, it remains difficult to gauge what exact share of the rushing touches Powell will garner week-to-week, keeping his fantasy owners guessing. He'll look to put together another strong outing against the Buccaneers in Week 10.
Powell rushed 14 times for 33 yards and secured all three of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Falcons.
Powell notably saw 17 total touches to Matt Forte's 10, but neither back could get anything going on the ground. However, Powell did find some success in the passing game, and he now has at least three receptions in three of his past four contests. Despite the boost in volume Sunday, the 29-year-old's fantasy prospects remain difficult to gauge, considering his timeshare with Forte and the cap that places on his upside. He'll look to up his production versus a tough Bills defense in a Week 9 Thursday night matchup.
Powell ran for 43 yards on nine rushes and had two catches for 40 yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to Miami.
Powell's afternoon featured a catch of 31 yards and a run of 25, accounting for over two-thirds of his total action. The veteran back flashed big play in Matt Forte's absence a few weeks ago with a 190-yard day against the Jaguars, but he seems like he's back in a supporting role with 17 touches to Forte's 29 over the past two weeks. Look for Elijah McGuire to further eat into Powell's workload.
