2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Powell has quietly been the best running back for the Jets over the past three seasons and a viable fantasy asset while averaging 8.5 fantasy points per game dating back to 2015. Although the seven-year NFL vet has yet to rush for more than 1000 yards in a season or receiver more than 178 rushes in a campaign, he continues to be a reliable flex option with excellent receiving skills.

Despite his success running the ball during that span (4.7 yard per carry average), the New York front office and coaching staff do not view Powell as an every-down back, as evident by the signing of Isaiah Crowell this offseason to a three-year contract. Crowell will be the first and second down back, with Powell acting as the change of pace and sharing passing down duties with Elijah McGuire.

Should Crowell continue to underwhelm as he did last season in Cleveland, Powell and McGuire could see a more active role as the season progresses. Until that occurs, neither player has much value outside of a flex start, and the New York ground game might be better off avoided.

News From The Past 90 Days
Isaiah Crowell poised to play big role
RB has impressed with speed, receiving ability
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 2, 9:00 pm

New York Jets
RB Isaiah Crowell is faster than I expected. He's a better receiver than Bowles expected. He'll be a big factor. (ESPN - Rich Cimini)

FFToday's Take: Crowell never consistently quite got the workload owners expected (or that HC Hue Jackson promised on a regular basis), but he has a grand opportunity to do so in New York. The Jets have seemingly identified Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire as change-of-pace backs, so there's no reason Crowell can't top 200 carries as the likely only "big back" on the roster.


Injury Elijah McGuire suffers foot injury
Will require surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jul 28, 2:56 pm

New York Jets
Jets RB Elijah McGuire, who figured to have a key role in the backfield, has suffered a fracture in his foot, source said. He’s going to require surgery and will miss an extended period. Depending on how long, he could be a candidate to return off Injured Reserve. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: McGuire was in the mix as part of the Jets three-headed running back by committee but he will unfortunately miss some if not most of the season. As a result he can be removed from consideration in redraft leagues. Alfred Morris and Orleans Darkwa have scheduled visits with New York. Bilal Powell gets a slight boost in value on the news.


Reduced role for Bilal Powell?
Crowell's missed one game in 4 years
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 11, 6:00 pm

New York Jets
I expect Bilal Powell’s production to drop dramatically this season, not because of any dropoff by him but because of fewer opportunities. Powell benefited in prior years from Ivory and Forte being injury prone. Crowell does not miss time. That is one of the things that appealed to the Jets about him. (New York Post)

FFToday's Take: Powell say an increase in carries (+47) but a decrease in receptions (-35) last season and the addition of Isaiah Crowell, who has missed only 1 game in four years, and emergence of Elijah McGuire could eat into Powell's workload in 2018. The Jets currently have three viable running backs making all of them marginal fantasy options unless injury occurs.
