Bilal Powell injury update: Jets running back ready to go for Patriots, has some fantasy value

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Bilal Powell is listed as probable to face the Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

Bilal Powell is listed as probable to face the Patriots on Sunday. He didn't miss any practice with a minor neck injury. He suffered a tweak in Week 6 and there's no reason to think that this will limit him in a big divisional game.

Powell hit the skids last week week with just nine carries for 30 yards against the Steelers. He did lead the team in both categories while Chris Ivory had four carries for 16 yards. Mike Goodson was making a charge, but he tore his ACL and will be out for the year.

Fantasy impact: Powell is far from a superstar and it's not a tough argument to make that Ivory is the more talented back. Ivory can't get stay healthy with his troublesome hamstring, however, so his limited touches might be the remedy to the issue. Powell will serve as a low-end flex play. Ivory is still far to risky to start even though coach Rex Ryan is really going to want to get the ground game going to keep Tom Brady off the field.
