RB - FA - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
Bilal Powell is signing a one-day contract with the Jets, and retiring from the NFL, according to Ari Meirov.
Powell last played in 2019 and spent his entire nine-year career as a member of the Jets.
Bilal Powell rushed seven times for 27 yards in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.
Powell is now headed to free agency, and the market will likely be lukewarm at best. Powell may land on a roster for 2020, but likely as nothing more than a backup or veteran presence. Powell figures not to carry any relevant fantasy value in 2020.
Bilal Powell rushed 19 times for 74 yards and caught two of his three targets for 14 yards in the Jets' Week 14 win over the Dolphins.
With Le'Veon Bell sidelined, Bilal Powell stepped right into 20+ touches. While that should inspire confidence in the event Bell misses more time, Powell would draw matchups with the Ravens and Steelers in the next two weeks, which make him a risky option.
Jets running back Bilal Powell is inactive for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Cleveland Browns due to a coach's decision.
With Bell playing and Montgomery set to back him up, Powell remains the odd man out in New Jersey.
