Ryan added that Powell earned his starting nod, but he wasn't too stellar in the preseason. The Jets used him as a Wildcat quarterback and also received goal-line carries. He averaged just 3.7 yards per carry in his carry and hasn't done much in the process.
Fantasy impact: The Jets have been coy in their discussion of most of their roster and they're going to have their hands full against the Bucs on Sunday. Tampa Bay ranked first in the NFL in rushing yards allowed and they even got better on defense. While there's no doubt that Powell should be owned in all leagues, he's not someone that should be starting and is more of a stash player. Those that drafted Chris Ivory shouldn't panic yet and he's a nice buy-low player.
