Bilal Powell Fantasy News

Friday, November 10, 2017, 5:53pm

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 10. With Forte out, Bilal Powell is a low-end RB1 (and chalk DFS) play. In the four games that Forte has missed over the last two seasons, Powell has averaged 18.3 touches for 108 yards and 0.50 touchdowns. Elijah McGuire is also worth a look as a RB3/flex who should see 8-12 touches as the change-of-pace back. Beat writer Rich Cimini intimated that this might be a multi-week absence for Forte.
