Bilal Powell, RB, Jets
2014 Outlook:Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
This former Louisville running back has been a disappointment since being drafted by the Jets in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Powell is averaging 3.9 yards per carry in his career and has never rushed for 700 yards or scored more than five touchdowns in a season. Now Powell finds himself on the outside looking in at a two-headed monster of Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory. Powell's biggest success in the Jets' offense was catching passes out of the backfield last season. He was clearly the superior receiver between himself and Ivory. In 2014, Chris Johnson will surely fill that role and thus push Powell further to the fringes of the game. This leaves Powell in limbo. Unless Johnson gets injured, don't expect Powell to have much fantasy relevance. In a crowded Jets backfield, Powell is not draft worthy in any format because of his limited role in the offense.
