Bilal Powell RB NYJ Dec 18 '12
Bilal Powell rushed for 28 yards on six carries and caught two passes for 15 yards in Week 15 against the Titans.
Powell was held under double-digit touches for the first time since Week 10, and it came one week after he toted the rock 19 times in Jacksonville. He played primarily on passing downs and lost some work in that area to Joe McKnight, who received four carries. Powell battled a toe injury during the week, so that may explain his limited usage. He'll be a poor flex play option for Week 16 against the Chargers' No. 7 run defense.

Bilal Powell (toe, shoulder) practiced in full on Saturday and is listed as probable for Monday night versus the Titans.
Powell steadily improved throughout the week, going from a DNP on Thursday, to limited on Friday, and then finally "full" on Saturday. He and Shonn Greene will continue to split carries in the New York backfield. Powell is Rotoworld's No. 34 running back for Week 15 and isn't a recommended flex option.

Bilal Powell (toe) returned to a limited practice on Friday.
The Jets will release their final injury report for Week 15 on Friday. Powell has avoided a fracture in the toe, but has experienced soreness and will not be a recommended flex play on Monday night against Tennessee.

Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) will miss practice again on Friday.
X-rays were negative on Powell's toe, but he's still experiencing soreness. Although coach Rex Ryan has expressed optimism that Powell will play against the Titans Monday night, it's a good bet that Shonn Greene will be carrying a heavier workload than normal.

The Jets revealed Thursday that Bilal Powell has a fractured toe.
Powell played in a dead-even timeshare with Shonn Greene last week, compiling 78 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. The fracture was likely discovered after the game. Even though Powell won't practice Thursday, coach Rex Ryan expressed no concern over his availability for Monday night's game in Tennessee. However, if Powell is operating at less than 100 percent than a larger piece of this timeshare figures to go to Greene. It's a situation to monitor through Saturday's practice.

Bilal Powell rushed 12 times for 58 yards as the Jets outlasted the Cardinals in Week 13.
Powell got the start, but Shonn Greene appeared to have the hotter hand and the Jets stuck with Greene en route to twice as many carries as Powell had. Although Powell has earned increased workloads as the season as gone along, he's not an upgrade on Greene as an early-down ball carrier and hasn't swiped Greene's starting job. Leave Powell on fantasy benches in Week 14 at Jacksonville.

Bilal Powell rushed 12 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 12 loss to the Patriots.
Powell was the red zone back of choice, and that ended up netting him a score from four yards out in the third quarter. New York is moving to more of a timeshare committee between he and Shonn Greene in the backfield, so Powell could be worth a grab in deeper leagues. Greene touched the ball 15 times on Thursday night, compared to 14 for Powell.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) is practicing in full this week.
Powell is seemingly always on the injury report, but has managed to suit up for 8-of-10 games this season. The Jets' goal-line and third-down back in Sunday's win over the Rams, Powell appears ticketed for a strict timeshare on Thanksgiving against the Patriots. You could do worse for a desperation flex option.

Bilal Powell (concussion, questionable) will play on Sunday against the Rams.
Powell suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of last week's game in Seattle, so it's a quick recovery for the second-year back. However, he won't have much of an impact in the game. Powell isn't worthy of a roster spot in standard 10-12 team leagues.

Bilal Powell (concussion) returned to Jets practice Friday, getting in a limited session.
Powell is officially questionable for Week 11, but it's hard to see him making an impact against the Rams if he's active. The "questionable" tag does suggest he's been medically cleared, however. Even behind lead-footed Shonn Greene, Powell isn't worth a roster spot in 10-12 team leagues.
