Jets will 'look into' more carries for RBs Bilal Powell or Joe McKnight

After a decent effort in Week 1, Jets running back Shonn Greene rushed for 63 yards on 30 carries in the past two games. Bilal Powell was the team's most effective runner in each of those weeks, and head coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Greene could lose more work to Powell or Joe McKnight @OfficialJoeJet going forward.
"That's certainly a possibility that we'll look into," Ryan said. "We'll look at anything that will help our team. Has that been discussed? No."

Fantasy Analysis:

McKnight has rushed just three times for 14 yards this season, so this is really between Greene and Powell. Greene has been one of the most annoying running backs to own or watch for the past couple of years. He is a pure straight-line runner and doesn't use enough power even though he's carrying close to 230 pounds. He's also doesn't make a big impact in the passing game. I don't think it's a fluke that Powell's touches count is steadily rising. He should be picked up and stashed on the bench right now. For this week, I don't like ANY Jets player versus an angry 49ers defense.
