Powell suffered a neck injury that sidelined him for the second half of last season and proved healthy after a workout with his former team. It's an interesting signing, as New York shelled out some big money for Le'Veon Bell this offseason, and also have Elijah McGuire, Ty Montgomery and Trent Cannon in their RB room. Powell is just one season removed from back-to-back 700+ rushing yard outputs and with a solid camp could emerge as a change-of-pace back in this offense.
Powell is worth a late-round flier in best-ball contests and could be a viable streaming option once the season gets rolling.
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.
