Jets beat expects RB Bilal Powell's production to drop in 2018
Brian Costello of the New York Post expects Bilal Powell's production to "drop dramatically" in 2018. Costello cites new addition Isaiah Crowell's health as a major reason for this prediction, as well as the emergence of second-year running back Elijah McGuire.
This prediction doesn't seem outrageous given the Jets' investment in Crowell (three years, $12 million). If McGuire can prove he can do the third-down work effectively, Powell becomes expendable for the team. The Jets can save $4 million on the cap by cutting Powell.
