Bilal Powell RB NYJ Sep 12 '781 Comment

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.

Bilal Powell (concussion) was held out of Wednesday's practice.

It means he's unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game. Back to a strict reserve role even before his latest injury, Powell can be dropped in 12-14 team leagues.

Jets RB Bilal Powell suffered a fourth-quarter concussion against Seattle and is done for the night.

He'll be doubtful for Week 11, as well. Powell played sparingly behind Shonn Greene against the Seahawks, managing two touches for 11 yards. He can be dropped comfortably in re-draft leagues.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Powell missed two weeks with a dislocated shoulder, but practiced on a limited basis this week and is expected to be active Sunday, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. With Joe McKnight (ankle) sidelined, Powell will serve as the primary change-of-pace option to Shonn Greene.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

Powell missed the last two weeks with a dislocated shoulder and will continue to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. With Powell and Joe McKnight (ankle) sidelined, Shonn Greene has firmly entrenched himself as the Jets' featured back.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) missed Jets practice again Friday and is listed as doubtful for Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Shonn Greene may be an every-down back in the difficult matchup with Powell out and Joe McKnight still hobbled by his ankle injury. McKnight didn't practice at all this week and will be a game-time decision. Powell's status remains "week to week" with no timetable for return. He's droppable in 12-team leagues.
