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.

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.

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) should be able to play against once he recovers from his neck injury, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: Powell probably will be ready for training camp this season but will not be a starting running back for a team. He likely will be a No. 2 running back for a team next season but would only be a late-round pick in deeper leagues.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) will have surgery on his injured neck. The injury will not only end Powell's season, but could threaten his career, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: It's terrible news for the Jets' complementary running back. Obviously he can be dropped in all redraft leagues. Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon will take over Powell's change-of-pace, passing-down role going forward with Isaiah Crowell maintaining his starting duties.

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: Trenton Cannon caught four balls for 69 yards last week, and he figures to take over in that third-down, receiving back role. He's worth a speculative look in PPR formats. Powell can be dropped in most formats. Maybe he's worth keeping in a dynasty league near the end of your roster.
