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.The Lions backfield is loaded with several decent backs who are all about on the same level. It will be tough for most of them to find touches except for Riddick who has his job locked in. Expect much of the same, making him a solid depth piece to fill in during bye weeks and injuries.
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. Possibly one of the hardest players to predict in fantasy football, as Riddick has been one of the more consistent RB3/RB4's in the game the last few years, but the scenery has changed quite a bit in Detroit.
Staff Rankings
QB List
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.In the past, Riddick has been a worthwhile flex option in PPR leagues but not worth much in standard leagues. Now, with the addition of Kerryon Johnson alongside LeGarrette Blount, Riddick's value may decrease even more. Still, he's a good pass-catching running back, so he might still get some work.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
The Jets backfield likely won't produce a strong fantasy player this season but Powell and Crowell are the best of the group and I think Powell can play well with full-time work if Crowell is hurt or can't produce.Riddick will continue to be a PPR fantasy option, as he has a clear path to the majority of running back targets this season with Blount and Johnson both not proficient as receivers.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He only had 2 weeks of RB1 production and another 3 where he didn't kill you in 2017. 
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 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 decent late-round value at a discounted RB57 ADP.The only RB with 50+ catches in each of the last three seasons, Riddick has maintained PPR value (RB 18, 25, and 26) despite compiling 776 combined rushing yards on 219 carries. Drafters are nevertheless nonplussed with a steady hand who has not scored more than six TDs in a single season or hit the 100-yard plateau since Oct. 20, 2016. Kerryon Johnson's three-down abilities caps Riddick's ceiling, but he's a useful low-floor PPR bench pick.
Kevin Roberts

 Riddick has more value in PPR formats but even there it's tough to project him too high given all the bodies in DET now

Hopefully now we all know what the Jets knew, Powell simply not talented enough for featured role
