Bilal Powell injury: Limited Wednesday practice raises fantasy value of Shonn Greene

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

With Powell and Joe McKnight hurt, Greene's value is set. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets running back Bilal Powell (shoulder) was limited in practice on Wednesday after missing the last two games with injury. Backup Joe McKnight (ankle) missed practice altogether. Both could play against the Seahawks on Sunday, but so far Shonn Greene is the only sure bet to go barring something unforeseen in practice.

Fantasy Take: Seattle was one of the top run defenses in the NFL, but have been battered by Frank Gore and Adrian Peterson in recent weeks. Shonn Greene, however, is not of that level. If Powell and McKnight are both out, it should increase the value of Greene a bit, but he's already receiving 60% of the team's carries and part of those are going to Tim Tebow.

Greene is a low-end RB2 this week.
