Description: Jets running back Bilal Powell missed Wednesday's practice due to illness.
Insight: This shouldn't effect his availability for Sunday. He's a low-end value at best while sharing time with Chris Ivory.

Description: According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Jets coach Rex Ryan said that Bilal Powell "earned the right to start" Week 1 but added that Chris Ivory will get "substantial work."
Insight: Ivory is the better player but he missed significant time in training camp due to a hamstring injury. The Jets will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had the No. 1 rush defense in the NFL last season, so fantasy owners should stay away from this situation.

Description: Jets halfback Bilal Powell doesn't have a broken left toe, but it is extremely sore and he's going to be limited in the game against Tennessee.
Insight: Shonn Greene (883 yards, six TDs) will become a more attractive backfield option for fantasy owners even if Powell plays on Monday as he should see the majority of the workload.

Description: Jets halfback Bilal Powell is dealing with a broken left toe according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Description: Jets running back Bilal Powell led the team with 78 yards on 19 carries, and also scored a touchdown Sunday against Jacksonville.
Insight: Powell has handled 13.5 carries per game over his last four games. He's turned in 218 yards and four touchdowns in that span and isn't a bad flex play next week against the Titans.

Insight: Powell was a big part of the Jets running attack last weekend with 11 carrries for 42 yards and two scores. His appearance takes away from Shonn Greene's fantasy value.

Description: Jets running back Bilal Powell left Sunday's game with a concussion and is questionable for Week 11 against St. Louis.
Insight: Shonn Greene has seen his fantasy numbers drop for three consecutive weeks since his breakout game against Indianapolis, but with Powell and Joe McKnight sidelined by injury, he'll continue to get the majority of the workload.

Description: Jets running back Bilal Powell left Sunday's game with a dislocated shoulder and is expected to miss Sunday's game against New England.
Insight: If Shonn Green can continue what he started last week (161 yards rushing, 3 TDs), Powell will not be missed. Joe McKnight will be Greene's backup assuming his injured ankle cooperates.
