FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 15 ISSUES: SNOW, MATT FORTE INJURY SPELL BIG DAY FOR BILAL POWELL

There was almost unanimous consensus regarding the fact New York Jets backup running back Bilal Powell was the top waiver add for fantasy football Week 15.  Coming off a monster performance the previous Sunday where he rushed for a massive 145 yards on 29 carries (plus 5 catches for 34 more yards), Powell was a star in spelling Matt Forte who came down with a torn meniscus in his knee.  Forte has yet to practice this week and will reportedly be a game-time call.  Since the Jets are out of playoff contention, there is no need to take chances with Forte against the Miami Dolphins. Complicating matters is the fact the game will be played Saturday night (thus eliminating another recovery day) and in the snow and wind which increases the chance for more trouble.  As a result of the weather and his own skill, Powell looks like a lock as a top RB 2 this week in the semifinals of fantasy football.  The workload will be there and Powell also can be a big help in PPR leagues since he can catch the football.  If you didn't snag Powell off waivers, let's hope you don't have to play him this week.
