RB Montell Owens (Jacksonville)
Percent owned (ESPN): 8.8%
Montell Owens rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on 14 attempts in his first career start and added an 11 yard reception. I can’t guarantee you he’ll get another start, but there are 3 backs injured on the depth chart ahead of him, Maurice Jones-Drew, Rashad Jennings, and Jalen Parmele, and he looked better last week than any of them ever have, with the exception of Maurice Jones-Drew. If he continues to be the starter, he’ll be worth a start going forward.
RB Bilal Powell (NY Jets)
Percent owned (ESPN): 3.1%
Now fully healthy, Powell has rushed for 218 yards and 4 touchdowns on 54 carries in his last 4 games, along with 4 catches for 31 yards. He’s effectively operating as 1b to Shonn Greene’s 1a and should be owned in as many leagues as Greene, who is probably an inferior runner, but isn’t. He’s definitely worth a pickup for those thin at running back.
