Through four training camp practices, it has been clear that Gase likes the idea of mixing and matching his backs while using them in various ways. There could be multiple ballcarriers lined up at different spots on a given play, presenting a big-time challenge for opposing defenses.
Bell will be the primary ball carrier, obviously, but it seems like the rest could also be involved in all aspects of the offense. The team likely can't keep all five backs listed above, and there have been stories that McGuire and Cannon could be on the roster bubble. Right now, the Jets are taking it easy with Bell and likely making sure to get a good look at the rest of the backfield.
NYJ RB Bilal Powell - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs. Minnesota Vikings
Bilal Powell carried the ball 16 times for 59 yards last week. He's been consistent in his touches and is basically splitting time with Isaiah Crowell, which limits the value of both. Powell did have a 99 rushing yard game two weeks again but it seems Crowell is having bigger games more often.
Powell will face the Vikings who are ranked 5th in aFPA to running backs. He should still get his touches and his numbers will be pretty consistent unless the Jets change up their strategy. Powell can be in your lineup for Week 7 but only as a low-end RB3 or Flex.
