2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of only a few attractive fantasy options on an otherwise pathetic offense, Powell was far more efficient than his backfield mate Matt Forte, with a 5.5 yard per carry average on 131 carries in 2016, and was a more accomplished player catching balls out of the backfield.

Only David Johnson, Le'Veon Bell, and James White garnered more targets in the passing game for running backs last season, and Powell will likely continue to be the primary option for McCown, Petty, Hackenberg, or whatever QB the lowly Jets roll out each Sunday.

The fact that Powell has never carried the ball more than 176 times in a season and the likelihood that Forte will continue to receive the bulk of first and second down carries, in addition to goal line work, limits Powell's value in standard leagues. In PPR formats, Powell is a solid flex option with the upside to be a viable No. 2 RB.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Matt Forte ruled out
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 10, 11:45 am

New York Jets
After missing practice for the third straight day with knee swelling, New York Jets running back Matt Forte was declared out for Sunday's road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Forte experienced some knee swelling this week which will keep him out of action against the Buccaneers. Expect Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire to handle the running back duties. Powell makes for a solid RB2 option against a Bucs defense allowing the 4th most fantasy points to running backs.


Injury Forte misses second straight practice
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 9, 11:45 am

New York Jets
Jets practice report (early version): RB Matt Forte (knee) wasn't spotted at practice, the second straight day he's sitting out. This is officially a concern. It also appears that CB Morris Claiborne (foot) and DE Mo Wilkerson (foot, shoulder) won't practice. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Forte's knee swelled up causing him to miss practice yesterday as well. We'll see how he does Friday but he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday. If he sits, Bilal Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire would handle running back duties. Powell would be in the RB2 conversation against the Bucs.


Injury Bilal Powell misses practice Wednesday
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 18, 1:45 pm

New York Jets
Did not practice: Wilkerson, Robby Anderson (ankle), Bilal Powell (calf) Limited: Ealy, Matt Forte #nyj (Brian Costello on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Powell missed Week 6 with a calf injury and is off to a bad start for Week 7. In his absence, Matt Forte handled 17 touches with Elijah McGuire accumulating 10. The Jets travel to Miami in Week 7.

Powell dealing with calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 12, 12:45 pm

New York Jets
Jets injuries: Mo Wilkerson and Bilal Powell missed practice for the second straight day. Matt Forte was limited. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like we're trending towards Powell being inactive and a shared backfield with Forte and rookie Elijah McGuire against the Patriots. McGuire would have some flex appeal in this scenario.


Injury Bilal Powell day-to-day
Calf strain

Bilal Powell has a calf strain. He is day-to-day. (New York Post - Brian Costello)

FFToday's Take: With the exception of his 190-total yard explosion in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Powell has been a bitter disappointment for those owners who expected him to take over the Jets' backfield and benefit from excessive garbage time. Elijah McGuire may be forced to carry the load in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots should Powell and Matt Forte (toe) be unable to go.


Injury Forte not likely to play in Week 4
New York signs Travaris Cadet
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 27, 11:46 am

New York Jets
The Jets may not have Matt Forte this week because of a toe injury, so they’ve added some reinforcements to their backfield by committee. According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Jets have signed former Saints running back Travaris Cadet. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Matt Forte is being labeled as week-to-week and appears doubtful to play Week 4. Toe injuries have a way of lingering so don't anyone owning Forte may want to amend their roster accordingly. Bilal Powell becomes a stronger fantasy play as a result of the expected increase in workload not only this week but for the remainder of the season. If Forte were to miss extended time, Travaris Cadet could become an attractive add in deeper PPR formats as the bye weeks approach.
