Bilal Powell Injury Update: Backup RB is out without fantasy value

Jeff Zelevansky

Bilal Powell is out on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) will miss Sunday's game against the Patriots. He did not practice all week and the Jets are hoping that he can return for Week 8.

Powell has 34 carries for 129 yards so far this season and technically started a game for the Jets. He plays on third downs, but only has four receptions on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Powell was slowly building up some value as Shonn Greene really struggled this year until last week, but that all changed when Greene exploded for 161 yards and three TDs on Sunday. Greene's value skyrocketed over the weekend and the Jets are really shorthanded in the backfield.

Powell can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues and Greene owners might want to sell high at the first chance they can.
