Running Back Ottawa Redblacks
September 17, 2017 William Powell News
RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Powell (undisclosed) gained 144 yards on 25 rushes and added one reception for four yards in Sunday's 29-11 win over the Alouettes.
With the Redblacks down two quarterbacks, the onus was on Powell to carry the offense, and he came through in spectacular fashion. The 29-year-old logged career highs in carries and rushing yards, following what had been a three-game absence with an undisclosed injury. Powell has logged double-digit carries in five of the last six games he's played in, making him an especially appealing play in Week 14 against the vulnerable Bombers defense if Ottawa finds itself down to Ryan Lindley at quarterback.
