We have never seen Powell start an entire season and he is now 30 years old so we may never know how good he could have been, but he has killed in fantasy when given the lion's share of touches. There is a chance it happens to start the season with Crowell and McGuire banged up.While it seems that the Broncos drafted Royce Freeman to jump in as the lead-back from Week 1, it isn't certain quite yet. Booker is said to have the starting job for now, and while that may still mean a split backfield, Booker is worth drafting just in case.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Fantasy gamers would love to see the Jets give Powell a leading role, but they instead signed Isaiah Crowell to replace Matt Forte. Any gains from Powell's career-high 178 carries were washed out by his receptions (23) and targets (33) getting gutted from 2017's 58 catches in 74 targets. He also tied Doug Martin for the worst success rate (35 %) of 47 RBs with at least 100 rushes. Yet despite the limited workload and snap counts (51 % in 2016, 42 % in 2017), the underrated back has netted RB22 and 26 finishes over the last two years. Now that the breakout buzz has withered, he's a nice late-round value amid a strong preseason.Averaging 3.6 YPC over two years, picking Booker is a bet of him getting more volume than rookie Royce Freeman. He found pay dirt once despite receiving 17 red-zone carries, but also produced 14.8 PPR points in his only game playing the majority of Denver's snaps. Despite what the depth chart says, Freeman looks poised to assume C.J. Anderson's leading rushing role, which leaves Booker as bench fodder.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He could be the lead back to start the season, but he's almost 30 and he only had 2 weeks of RB1 production and another 3 where he didn't kill you in 2017.Could get first crack at being the lead back in Denver. Booker's per-carry average of 3.6 yards is 27th out of the 29 backs in 2016-17 who had at least 250 carries (Booker had 253). "He's got to come out and work and earn the right to be the (first) guy," Joseph said. "He understands that with C.J. gone, it's a wide open race. He's a good football player, but we want more from him, obviously." denverpost.com
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's not an ideal situation in New York, but if you really think they'll lean on Isaiah Crowell more than they did Matt Forte, you're going about this the wrong way. Powell should at least have the same role he had last year, if not more. He finished as the RB26, less than double his current cost. He's not someone who will win you your fantasy league, but he can most definitely play a role. Knowing that he played the snaps with the first-team offense in their preseason game, it should give you a bit more confidence in drafting him. I love Royce Freeman's game, which is why I don't view Booker as a threat to him. With that being said, NFL teams sometimes do some weird things and make rookies "earn their stripes." Booker is someone who played behind C.J. Anderson the last few years, and the Broncos cut Anderson this offseason. Then they drafted Freeman in the third-round. What does that tell you about Booker? He's just a handcuff and not one that you should go out of your way to draft, as we've seen him in a workhorse role before back in 2016. It wasn't pretty.

I'd personally love to see Powell get the running back gig in New York to himself, but I've wanted to see that for years and the Jets apparently hate him. The Jets backfield is really muddled, with the additions of Isaiah Crowell and Thomas Rawls this offseason and the drafting of Trenton Cannon (not to mention the fact that Elijah McGuire still exists, though he's not healthy) makes drafting Powell risky at best, especially in standard leagues.Personally, I'm a Royce Freeman believer, and that's partly why I have Booker as low as I do. Could Booker get the majority of the work Week 1? Sure, that's definitely possible, but even if he does I don't expect him to hang onto the job for long. He's had and lost the starting job too many times for me to have any faith in him, and he ended the year last year with a -9.2% DVOA. However, he's still worth a grab in the later rounds on the chance that he gets the starting gig and hangs onto it-even if he's not that good, being a starting running back in the NFL is worth something in fantasy.

 Booker is a solid talent but he has been a bust so far and he has competition. I like him as a late flier but I can't invest early in him

Hopefully now we all know what the Jets knew, Powell simply not talented enough for featured roleThis is Freeman's backfield but Booker has the talent to carve out a significant role
