2016 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Jul-28-2016 by Shawn Childs
Update (7/28): A very slight rise for Powell in your rankings is in order now that Ryan Fitzpatrick is back. Unfortunately, since Powell is limited to third-down and passing down situations, it's hard to imagine poaching enough touches to have a consistent Fantasy impact.
Powell turned out to be a nice find on the waiver wire in 2015 while delivering playable value in PPR leagues over weeks 12 through 15. Over this period, Bilal caught 25 passes for 225 yards and two TDs on 32 targets. Also, he had 22 rushes for 134 yards and another TD. This worked out to 89.9 Fantasy points (19.7 per game). I'm sure someone in the high-stakes market picked up a huge check in the overall standing as a result of his upside ride. His season in 2015 started with mid-teen touches over his first three games (14.3 per game) while splitting time with Chris Ivory. He battled a groin injury and ankle from Week 4 to Week 10 leading to no value for more than half of the season. In 2013, Powell had his best opportunity for success (213 touches for 969 combined yards with 36 catches and only TD). His skill set will be overlapped in the passing game by Forte, and he has no upside as a runner at this point in his career. His pass-catching ability makes him worth a flier as insurance if you decide to draft the lead back on the Jets.
