Summary

Powell will give Matt Forte the occasional break to try and keep the 30-year old back fresh, but we're not totally sure how much he'll really eat into the latter's carries. He's making almost as much as Forte, but we all know that finances don't always translate to playing time. Powell balanced well with Chris Ivory last season, so we expect him to do so again this year, but his talents replicate what Forte can do, so he doesn't particularly bring a different look to the offense. His biggest value might come if Forte gets hurt. (May 20)

Jets | Lots of rest for Matt Forte (Thu Jul 21, 04:42 PM) - New York Jets RB Matt Forte should receive plenty of rest this season with RBs Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson also in the mix.

Our View: Forte will see a lot of touches in 2016 but with Powell re-signed, he should also stay fresh throughout the season. We believe he will put up solid RB2 numbers this year.
