Jets' Bilal Powell: Closes out ninth season in NY
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed seven times for 27 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Bills.

There were questions about whether Powell would be able to play this season after he suffered what was believed to be a career-ending neck injury last season, but he returned for a ninth campaign with the Jets. The 31-year-old running back worked in a backup role, finishing with 59 carries for 229 yards and seven catches for 33 yards. It remains to be seen whether Powell opts to retire or returns for another season in a depth role.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Quiet in final 2019 home game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell (ankle) rushed once for three yards while catching one of two targets for another five in Sunday's 16-10 win over Pittsburgh.

Neither Powell nor Ty Montgomery broke double-digit scrimmage yards while Le'Veon Bell touched the ball 29 times. The lifelong Jet will close out his ninth season with the team against the Bills in Week 17.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Cleared for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Powell's reps were capped in practice throughout the week, but his availability for game day ultimately wasn't impacted. He'll be in line to fill his usual role as the primary backup to top back Le'Veon Bell.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers after logging limited practices this week.

Powell has a chance to return to the Jets' backfield mix following a one-game absence, but with starter Le'Veon Bell back in action, Powell's projected complementary role limits his fantasy utility.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Returns to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Powell was unable to practice in advance of Week 15 action, so his return to the field Wednesday is a positive sign with regard to his availability for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That said, after Le'Veon Bell rejoined the Jets lineup for last week's loss to the Ravens following a one-game absence, Powell once again profiles as a complementary option in the team's backfield.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Ruled out for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell (ankle/illness) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Ravens, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Powell missed a trio of practices this week, so it doesn't come as a surprise that he won't be available. With Ty Montgomery (foot/hip) also listed as questionable, Josh Adams could step into the No. 2 role in New York's backfield behind Le'Veon Bell, who is slated to return to action after missing the Week 14 win over the Dolphins with an illness.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Ankle injury may force DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell's ankle injury, and not his current bout with the flu, is the greatest threat to his availability for Thursday's contest at Baltimore, Rich Cimini of reports.

Powell will miss his second practice in as many days Tuesday, per Connor Hughes of The Athletic. With just one session remaining this week to prove his health, Powell is trending in the wrong direction for an appearance Thursday. Elsewhere in the Jets' backfield, Le'Veon Bell (illness) was listed as a full participant on Monday's injury report, so Powell was poised to take a step back before his health became compromised.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Dealing with ankle issue, illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

If the Jets had practiced Monday, Powell (ankle/illness) would not have participated, Rich Cimini of reports.

Meanwhile, fellow running back Le'Veon Bell (illness) is said to be pretty close to 100 percent and has a solid chance to play Thursday night against the Ravens. In that scenario, Powell's projected Week 15 workload would take a hit, especially if he heads into Baltimore banged up and/or under the weather.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Exits late after carrying load
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed 19 times for 74 yards and caught two of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami. He also injured his ankle late in the game, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Powell worked in a workhorse role with Le'Veon Bell (illness) out, getting 19 carries to nine for Ty Montgomery. Per Hughes, coach Adam Gase didn't know if Powell would have been able to come back from his late ankle injury. While Bell likely will return by Thursday's Week 15 clash against the Ravens, Powell's status is worth monitoring in case Bell has to miss additional time.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Slated to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell is in line to start at running back in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This was the expected outcome after the Jets downgraded Le'Veon Bell (illness) from questionable to out for the Week 14 matchup, but it's at least reassuring for those deploying Powell in their lineups to know that the 31-year-old will be on the field for the Jets' first snap of the day. Though Powell will start and projects to lead the team's backfield Sunday, Ty Montgomery and Josh Adams should also have roles in the game plan and could earn increased snaps as the contest unfolds, depending on how they perform in their initial opportunities. Powell has seen the most consistent use of the reserve trio when Bell has exited the field this season, rushing 32 times for 125 yards (3.9 per carry) and catching four passes for 17 yards in 10 games.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Could lead backfield committe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell could be in line for a significant boost in playing time Sunday against the Dolphins after the Jets ruled lead back Le'Veon Bell (illness) out for the contest.

Powell is still expected to share snaps out of the backfield with Ty Montgomery, but Rich Cimini of hinted Friday the 31-year-old would stand to be the primary beneficiary while Bell is inactive. Powell has just 139 total yards in 2019, but he's averaged at least four yards per carry in each of the prior seven seasons and has proven to be a difference maker when given opportunities in the past. The well-traveled Montgomery, meanwhile, has a total of 248 rushing yards with three different teams across the past two seasons.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Continues to work as backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed four times for 14 yards and caught both of his targets for four yards in Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Bengals.

Powell has touched the ball between six and nine times in each of the past four games. Expect a similar workload for the backup running back against the Dolphins in Week 14.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Six touches in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed five times for 15 yards and caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Raiders.

This game featured plenty of mop-up work from New York's depth running backs as Powell got five carries, Ty Montgomery got five and Josh Adams got four. As long as Le'Veon Bell remains healthy, New York's other backfield options will be irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Another seven-carry game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed seven times for 42 yards, caught one of two targets for five yards and threw an incomplete pass in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Redskins.

Powell was more effective than starter Le'Veon Bell (18 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown) on a per-carry basis, but Bell remains locked in as New York's unquestioned starter. Ty Montgomery and Josh Adams worked in for a combined six carries, but Powell remains No. 2 on the Jets' depth chart.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Gets seven carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed seven times for 15 yards in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Giants.

Most of Powell's production came on a 13-yard run. New York's backup running back got more touches than usual because starter Le'Veon Bell hurt his ribs and came out of the game, but Bell says he expects to be fine for the team's Week 11 game against the Redskins.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Eclipses Montgomery as No. 2 back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed twice for 16 yards but wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 26-18 loss to the Dolphins.

Powell seems to have taken over the backup running back gig, as Ty Montgomery didn't touch the ball for the second straight game. The backup role doesn't come with much usage, however, as Powell hasn't recorded more than four touches in a game this season.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Season-high four carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed four times for 11 yards in Sunday's 29-15 loss to the Jaguars.

Powell's four carries were four more than Ty Montgomery saw, while Le'Veon Bell led the way with nine. We'd still consider Montgomery to be the team's No. 2 running back at this point, but a similar distribution next week could flip-flop Powell up from his current No. 3 spot.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Just one touch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed once for three yards on his only touch in Monday's 33-0 loss to New England.

Powell came in to spell Le'Veon Bell on a short yardage situation and managed to plow straight ahead for a first down. Even if Bell were to get hurt, Ty Montgomery would likely be the primary beneficiary rather than Powell.

Jets' Bilal Powell: One rush in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed once for five yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 24-22 win over the Cowboys.

Powell was the only Jets running back besides Le'Veon Bell to record a carry, but Ty Montgomery out-touched him three to one. Neither of New York's backups will get more than a handful of touches as long as Bell remains healthy.

October 6, 2019 06:28 PM
Jets' Bilal Powell: Gets first touch in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell rushed for four yards on his only touch in Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Eagles.

The carry was Powell's first of the season. He continues to languish as New York's third running back behind Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery.
