New York Jets RB Bilal Powell ran 19 times for 74 yards in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two receptions for 14 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Powell did a good job and is worth using as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 15 if Le'Veon Bell is sidelined again.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold spoke glowingly of his team's re-signing of RB Bilal Powell this past week. 'Great to have BP back,' Darnold said. 'Can't wait to get to work with him. I haven't seen him in a while, so it's going to be nice to be able to see him. I know BP is a great guy and obviously a great player, so it's great to have him back.'
Huddle Up: Powell played seven games in 2018 before suffering what was initially believed to be a career-threatening neck injury. The 30-year-old rushed for 343 yards and zero touchdowns, but he caught 11 of 18 targets for 110 yards and one score. He'll enter camp battling for a depth position behind No. 1 back Le'Veon Bell.

Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (neck) was fully cleared from a neck injury that was once thought to threaten his career.
Huddle Up: Powell could return to RB4 relevance in the right situation. Keep tabs on him through the offseason.

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent RB Tevin Coleman could be signed by the New York Jets to lead their backfield in 2019, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. Cimini also believes the Jets will cut RB Isaiah Crowell and not pursue impending free-agent RB Bilal Powell.
Huddle Up: Coleman was solid, although not spectacular, as the lead back for the Falcons last year. If he does end up as the No. 1 back for the Jets, he should at least be a volume-based RB2.
