Bilal Powell does everything fine, but nothing exceptionally in the backfield. He can run between the tackles, catch the ball, break the odd big run - but none of it all the time. Which is why the team brought in Chris Ivory last year and Chris Johnson this year. Ivory is often hurt, so you can expect to see Powell sometime in the 2014 season, though in reduced roll as we expect the majority of carries to go Johnson's way. Powell then has minimal value for fantasy in general and bye week value if something happens to Ivory. If both Johnson and Ivory go down, aside from causing Jets fans to break their televisions, the result would be Powell getting the full load, which he can handle. But even then, his worth is likely no more than a low-end RB3. (May 25)

Jets | Chris Johnson looked rusty (Fri Aug 8, 12:28 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson looked rusty in his debut with the team against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Aug. 7. RB Chris Ivory (rib) was injured in the game and RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) is still nursing an injury, so Johnson was the team's lone healthy back for this game. Johnson dropped a pass on a third down and lacked burst while running, rushing for just two yards and a touchdown on four carries.

Our View: Fortunately, the Jets will have some time to shake off the rust from Johnson. We'll see if he can start looking more like his old self as the preseason continues.

Jets | Several to sit preseason opener (Thu Aug 7, 05:55 PM) - New York Jets SS Calvin Pryor (concussion), RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) and WR Greg Salas (undisclosed) will not play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 7.

Our View: No surprises here as the team won't mess with Pryor's concussion. Powell is stuck behind the Chris Brigade (Ivory and Chris Johnson) and isn't likely to be much of a factor so resting him is no loss. Salas is stuck in a glut of receivers and can use the play time to stand out, but clearly the Jets aren't worried about getting another look at him right now.
