Bilal Powell managed 30 yards on 10 carries and caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bucs.
He was out-touched 12 to 11 by Elijah McGuire in a game where the Jets got nothing going offensively before Robby Anderson's 38-yard touchdown catch in what amounted to garbage time. Powell was one of this week's highest-owned DFS plays, and busted as the Jets went with a near-equal RBBC instead of employing Powell as a lead back. The Jets go on their bye in Week 11. Matt Forte's (knee) status is uncertain for Week 12. Nov 12 - 4:50 PM

Matt Forte played 28-of-56 snaps (50%) Week 7 against the Dolphins.

He out-snapped Bilal Powell by seven and out-touched him by one. With both players healthy again, it looks like the Jets will revert to the same workload split we saw the first several weeks of the season, a split which did not result in much fantasy success for either player. Neither Forte nor Powell will be better than an RB3 even in a good matchup against the Falcons this week.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes reports the Jets are looking to add a fullback.

The move suggests the offense will change dramatically from the mostly spread attack under former OC Chan Gailey. Hughes reports New York is expected to put an "emphasis on the run game," which would be excellent news for Matt Forte's and Bilal Powell's fantasy values. Hughes mentions Mike Tolbert and Marcel Reece, but neither is a great lead blocker. Patrick DiMarco would make a lot of sense if the Falcons let him hit the open market.
