|Jets have a committee at RB -- Tue Nov 20 12:54 pm --|
Powell and Greene will split time
|Jets Coach Rex Ryan said the Jets would ideally want their backfield to be a committee approach. Last week Shonn Greene had 18 touches on 26 snaps and “backup” Bilal Powell saw 13 touches on 28 snaps. "You see the Patriots do it with their different backs. Miami does it. Buffalo's doing it," Ryan said. "If you have the talent, when the guys are healthy and all that, fresh, I think that's the best way." (ESPN New York)|
FF Today's Take: This report gives some relevance to Bilal Powell. Powell scored two touchdowns last week and over the course of the season averages 3.9 yards per carry to Greene’s 3.7 yards per carry. Unless Powell of Greene score a touchdown in a given week, it is hard to say that either Jets running back is fantasy relevant: especially this week. The Jets play on a short week against the Patriots, on Thanksgiving. The Patriots are 10th in the NFL against the rush and are 11th in fantasy points allowed to running backs.
