The Jets used a fourth-round pick in 2010 to acquire the Louisville product and he will get his first chance to earn extended playing time this season after sitting behind Shonn Greene, LaDainian Tomlinson and Joe McKnight as a rookie. Powell touched the rock in just two games last season, gaining 21 yards on 13 carries and showing little promise as an NFL back. However, Greene has failed to impress and McKnight is better suited running outside the tackles. There is a decent chance that Powell will sit third on the depth chart coming out of training camp but if Greene were to go down or struggle, Powell just might leapfrog McKnight to earn a more significant role.
New York waives Knile Davis a day after claiming him off waivers
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets hope C.J. Spiller can help boost their backfield with some speed and versatility.
The veteran running back was officially signed Wednesday, and the Jets waived running back Knile Davis a day after claiming him off waivers.
FF Today's Take:After being jettisoned by the Seahawks, C.J. Spiller will add some much needed depth behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. Meanwhile, Knile Davis's fantasy prospects are back on the decline after being let go by two teams in one week.
