Bilal Powell big disappointment for fantasy owners in Week 4

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith hands the ball off to running back Bilal Powell against the Tennessee Titans - Wesley Hitt

New York Jets running back Bilal Powell rushed for 66 yards, but did not score in the Jets Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

New York Jets' running back Bilal Powell rushed for 66 yards, but did not find the end zone in the Jets Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Powell had some nice runs, yet the Jets offense struggled to get things going and rookie quarterback Geno Smith turned the ball over four times. Powell carried the ball 14 times and finished with a 4.7 yards per carry average. The Jets only ran the ball 23 times as they went to the passing game in an effort to play catch up against the Titans who put up 38 points to the Jets 13. Powell got the bulk of the carries while Chris Ivory remains sidelined with a hamstring injury. Powell did catch three passes for 42 yards.

Fantasy impact: Powell will continue to get the bulk of the carries, but this was a big disappointment in light of the performance he put in against the Buffalo Bills. The Titans' defense has rebounded from a dreadful 2012 performance and has been very stout so one game shouldn't concern fantasy owners. Powell should rebound from this performance and still remains a solid fantasy start in all leagues. He also caught three passes, which he turned into 42 yards, so PPR players take note. The Jets will face the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football in Week 5 and Powell should still be considered a must-start for fantasy owners.
