|The team made a serious effort to re-sign veteran Bilal Powell this offseason, which means they likely envision a fairly significant role for him even with Matt Forte in the mix. Powell made his mark down the stretch last season in Weeks 13 through 16 and his absence in Week 17 against the Bills with the playoffs on the line was more significant than it was considered to be at the time. Powell’s role was more clearly defined as a backfield partner with Chris Ivory, who was not a big part of the passing game, but being teamed with the similarly skilled Forte will likely be a boost for the overall offense. Now the play selection will not be as apparent to opposing defenses when Powell is in the as it was when he came on to replace Ivory on passing downs. Powell had 47 receptions for 388 yards and 2 touchdowns last season, and while those numbers may fall a bit with Forte’s presence, there is room for him to increase his 313 rushing yards from last season. If Forte was to miss any time with injury, Powell would likely move into his role without much drop off in production making him an intriguing late-round pick.
|Jets sign C.J. Spiller|
New York waives Knile Davis a day after claiming him off waivers

|FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets hope C.J. Spiller can help boost their backfield with some speed and versatility.
The veteran running back was officially signed Wednesday, and the Jets waived running back Knile Davis a day after claiming him off waivers.
FFToday's Take: After being jettisoned by the Seahawks, C.J. Spiller will add some much needed depth behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. Meanwhile, Knile Davis's fantasy prospects are back on the decline after being let go by two teams in one week.
