Bilal Powell Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jets beat writer Manish Mehta confirms that RB Bilal Powell has beaten out RB Joe McKnight for the team's 3rd-down job.  Powell proved superior in pass protection this summer, although he managed just 3.5 yards per carry and 4.2 yards per catch this preseason.  Still, a few Jets players told Mehta that Powell is "flying under the radar."  Starter Shonn Greene is far from a world-beater, so it's conceivable that Powell could push for a bigger role as the season progresses.  He's a guy worth monitoring -- and maybe even adding in deeper PPR formats.

Jets insider Jenny Vrentas confirms that RB Bilal Powell has moved past RB Joe McKnight for the team's #2 RB spot.  Powell operated as the 1st-team offense's 3rd-down back in the preseason opener.  He finished with just 5 carries for 16 yards and 1 catch for 4 yards tough.  McKnight, meanwhile, picked up 32 yards on 7 carries and 34 yards on 3 receptions, although it came mostly against Cincinnati's 2nd-team defense.  This battle isn't over, but consider Powell the favorite for now.  That'd make him a potential late-round flier in PPR formats.  We just updated our projections for the Jets backfield.

Jets insider Rich Cimini singled out RB Bilal Powell for his outstanding training camp.  Cimini believes Powell has a shot to pass RB Joe McKnight on the depth chart.  "Frankly, Powell has looked like the best back on the field," Cimini writes. And that includes starter Shonn Greene.  Powell has a bit of a cult following in fantasy circles, but he managed just 21 yards on 13 carries last season.  We need to see more before recommending him as a late-round flier.  We did just nudge Powell up our rankings though.

Jets OC Brian Schottenheimer recently raved about 4th-round rookie RB Bilal Powell.  "You’re talking about an explosive runner that has great vision, great balance," Schotty sai.  "He’s a finisher. I think he had five or six runs over 50 yards [at Louisville last year.] A dynamic young back."  Powell will enter the 2011 season as New York's 4th RB behind Shonn Greene, LaDainian Tomlinson, and Joe McKnight.  He's a longshot for any fantasy value this year but has the skill-set to eventually emerge as the team's primary change-of-pace option behind Greene.
