4 spots, I have Hill, Cooper for first two. Please choose from Maclin, Gabriel, and Thielen for last two spots. I was going to sit Maclin and see how well Flacco is after being off with a back issue. Maclin however has a favorable matchup. Matt Ryan is my QB and I have Coleman as running back2 so Gabriel makes me heavy on Atlanta in my lineup.
The 4th spot is flex so I could throw CJ prosis, Powell, and

CJ Fedowitz into the mix.
I would go Maclin and

Powell. I think Powell will surprise a lot of
owners as the Jets don't have anything at wr.
I like Powell too! He is explosive.

However Forte is supposed to start, get the most snaps including goal-line snaps. that made me wonder about Powell. Have to think on that some more.
Theilen and Powell

I am playing Powell  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 9/9/2017 10:36 am : link
I think in PPR he's going to be a consistent point producer.
for Flex

I like both so I don't think it will be an issue. I would probably lean toward Marshall for the TD factor and Beckham still banged up.
Curious as to why some people are high on Powell.

IMO, he's going to get 50% of the touches at best in a bad offense with zero threats in the passing game. I understand last years Bills defense gave up a lot of points to the running backs, but I'm not expecting a ton out of Powell. Curious to hear others thoughts.

I agree for the most part. I have Powell, but he's clearly my backup RB, behind Melvin Gordon and Jordan Howard. Just hope Powell establishes himself as the jets bellcow, by the time I need him for bye week.
Perhaps that 85 yard TD in preseason has something to do with it  
wgenesis123 : 9/9/2017 2:22 pm : link
on BBI. Of course that was against the 2nd and 3rd team players on defense.
Do you agree that the only chance Powell becomes the bellcow  
Keith : 9/9/2017 2:36 pm : link
is if Forte gets hurt or traded?
if you play PPR in deep league, guys liike Powell, Riddick and Sproles  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 9/9/2017 3:13 pm : link
are solid RB/Flex plays. Riddick outscored Jonathan Stewart; Powell outscored Lamar Miller.
Would you start

Fournette vs a tough Texans defense or crowell versus the Steelers?
I'm not big on Powell  
YAJ2112 : 9/9/2017 6:18 pm : link
though I have warmed to him some as the preseason has gone on. I think it's clear that while he's not going to be a bellcow type even if Forte goes down, he will be heavily involved. He and Forte are the best 2 options on the Jets O right now and I think they will dominate the touches/targets.
