The semifinals are here. The question is are you still here or did your team get eliminated this final week of the regular season? Whether you’re going for a title or just playing consolation rounds, let’s scrape the last bits of meat off of the waiver wire’s bones.
Availability is based on ESPN leagues and FAAB off the $100 budget you’ve been nursing since September.
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (96%; $8) has scored four touchdowns in his last four games and has received at last 11 carries per outing. This week’s matchup with the Titans shows promise for another nice game from Powell.
New York Giants RB David Wilson (60%; $5) has burst back on to the scene with his monster game against New Orleans. I’m just as impressed with his 100 yards rushing as I am with this 221 yards in the kick return game. Add to the mix Ahmad Bradshaw possibly having knee issues and a soft Atlanta run defense, this could be another big week for the rookie.
Washington QB Kirk Cousins (99.8%; $3) would be...

Jets running back Bilal Powell led the team with 78 yards on 19 carries, and also scored a touchdown Sunday against Jacksonville.Fantasy Spin:Powell has handled 13.5 carries per game over his last four games.

The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn't need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time around.
Instead, they just pounded the Jaguars (2-11) up the...
Jets coach Rex Ryan revealed Thursday running back Bilal Powell has a fractured toe, but he expects him to play Week 15 at Tennessee (Monday). Powell was held out of practice Thursday.
It sounds like Powell has an injury that might not only keep him out Week 15, but the rest of the season. However, Ryan seems to disagree and believes Powell will be available Monday. Powell has...
It wasn’t the prettiest game of the season, but like “they” say: a win is a win. Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell helped the New York Jets (6-7) get past the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11).

The ideal gameplan for the New York Jets' offense includes a lot of carries divided evenly between running backs and limited chances taken via the passing game. That's exactly what transpired Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Running back Bilal Powell rushed for 78 yards on 19 carries, and fellow tailback Shonn Greene gained 77 yards on 20 carries. Each scored a rushing...
