Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs BUF (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Given Forte's workload, Powell only saw three opportunities as a ball carrier/receiver. Powell was used sparingly as a receiver on third downs, but when asked to pass block, he was able to pick up blitzing defenders. Forte's sizeable workload is unsustainable over a 16-game season, so expect Powell to receive more work in the following weeks.

2016 Week 1 vs CIN (4 / 41 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

Fans that were expecting to see more opportunities came away disappointed, but when given touches, he produced. Powell was the clear back-up to Forte and only received six touches compared to 28 touches for Forte. When given the ball, however, Powell made plays. In the third quarter, Powell took designed handoff on a draw play for 16 yards and a first down. Powell was also utilized as a receiver, catching two short dump off passes for minimal gains.

Jets | Bilal Powell ready to make an impact (Sat Sep 24, 09:30 PM) - New York Jets RB Bilal Powell has five carries and three catches through two games this season, but he said he will be ready to handle a bigger load whenever he is needed.

Our View: Consider Powell a high value handcuff while Matt Forte is taking the vast majority of the work. Powell is an excellent receiver out of the backfield and he was a low RB1 in PPR last year in November and December while sharing with Chris Ivory.

Jets | Matt Forte still thriving (Tue Sep 20, 08:20 PM) - New York Jets RB Matt Forte has shown no sign of old age or wear and tear yet in 2016. He is third in the NFL in rush attempts (52), second in rushing yards (196) and tied for first in rushing touchdowns (3). It was suspected that RB Bilal Powell would take away a good chunk of Forte's touches this season, but that has not been close to the case so far.

Our View: Forte is straight fire for his fantasy owners. He's a set-it-and-forget-it starter going forward as the clear lead back with the Jets. If you have the bench space, then make sure to keep Powell around just in case. He's a talented backup who could thrive in a larger role.
