Bilal Powell Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jets RB Bilal Powell fractured his toe during last week's game against the Jaguars.  He sat out practice on Thursday, but HC Rex Ryan believes Powell has a chance to play on Monday night.  "I think he'll be ok with that," Ryan said.  "I feel like he'll have a chance to go. That's what's been explained to me."  RBs usually struggle with toe injuries though.  Even if Powell plays, we're expecting to see less of him and more of Shonn Greene.

Jets HC Rex Ryan confirmed that the team wants to go forward with a committee attack at RB with Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell, and Joe McKnight.  "I think it is the ideal scenario for us because we have three very capable backs," Ryan said. "Instead of just throwing one guy in there all the time to take all the hits and all the protections and the routes and all that.  You kind of divide that role up. I think for us it's good.  If you have the talent, when the guys are healthy and all that, fresh, I think that's the best way."  Against the Rams on Sunday, Greene finished with 18 touches, Powell with 13, and McKnight with 5.  Powell actually led the way with 28 snaps though.  Greene had 26 and McKnight had 7.  Based on that game, Greene looks like the early-down pounder; Powell the 3rd-down and red zone back; and McKnight a change-of-pace.  A healthy workload was the only thing keeping Greene in low-end RB2 territory.  If he continues to share carries, he won't be much of a fantasy option at all.

Jets RBs Bilal Powell (shoulder) and Joe McKnight (ankle) were unable to practice all week.  Powell is listed as doubtful, while McKnight is questionable.  Neither guy is expected to play against the Patriots on Sunday though.  Undrafted rookie Jonathan Grimes will serve as the #2 RB, and we could see Tim Tebow take on a bigger ball-carrying role too.  Of course, Shonn Greene will continue to operate as the lead back.

Jets RB Bilal Powell went down with a shoulder injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts.  He's been ruled out for the rest of the game, hinting at a potentially serious injury.  RB Shonn Greene, meanwhile, is enjoying his best game of the season.

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.
