Jets RB Bilal Powell (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a poor bet to play against the Patriots. RB Matt Forte (toe) practiced again on Thursday and seems on track to form a committee backfield with Elijah McGuire.
Jets RB Bilal Powell suffered an ankle injury late in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He went for an x-ray after the game, but HC Adam Gase didn't have an update on his status. Powell led the Le'Veon Bell-less backfield with 19 carries for 74 yards vs. Miami but will drop back off the fantasy radar assuming Bell is back from the flu next week.
The Jets on Friday re-signed RB Bilal Powell. He'll compete with Ty Montgomery, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon for touches behind Le'Veon Bell. Powell averaged 11.4 carries and 1.6 receptions over his 7 games for last year's Jets. He'll turn 31 in October. We'll see if he hits August drafts as the #2 RB for the Jets.
The Jets have placed RB Bilal Powell on IR with the neck injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Vikings. He's not eligible to return until Week 16, if he's able to return at all. Powell can safely be dropped from fantasy rosters. He was averaging 11.4 carries and 2.6 targets per game this season, so it's a significant loss. RB Isaiah Crowell should soak up most of those carries. Trenton Cannon stepped in as the pass-catching back in Week 7, hauling in 4 of 5 targets for 69 yards. RB Elijah McGuire seems close to returning from the broken foot he suffered in late July and could re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the 2nd half of the season.
Jets RB Bilal Powell suffered a neck injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Vikings and has been ruled out. That should leave Isaiah Crowell in a 3-down role.
Jets RB Bilal Powell (calf) put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and isn’t listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He’ll play against the Dolphins this weekend, although the workload split between him, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire is uncertain. Powell is the best fantasy bet of the trio but is just a RB3 or flex play.
