Last season, Powell was stuck behind Chris Ivory, and though Ivory left, Matt Forte came in and we are looking at a similar circumstance. Powell may see a few more carries, and will continue to be a great receiver out of the backfield, but unless Forte suffers an injury, Powell will be nothing more than a RB4.

Jets RB Bilal Powell finished the third preseason game with four carries for 18 yards and three catches for 16 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Powell received decent volume in the 'dress rehearsal' game. Expected to be the primary backup to Matt Forte and the occasional change of pace RB, Powell is worth a mid-to-late round pick in fantasy, especially PPR leagues. He currently holds an ADP of 132 (14th round in 10-team and 11th in 12-team leagues).
