Jets expected to take advantage of versatile RBs

The New York Jets will have a busy backfield this season.

LeVeon Bell is the star of the running backs group, of course. But, Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell, and perhaps even Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon could all play significant roles in Adam Gase's offense.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
