2019 Fantasy Outlook
After going undrafted out of Florida in 2018, Powell latched on with the Lions and ultimately saw action in six regular-season games. He only caught five passes for 26 yards in his first five appearances, but exploded for six receptions and 103 yards in the season finale, when neither Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones or Bruce Ellington were healthy enough to play. While Golladay and Jones are back and healthy in 2019, both Ellington and TJ Jones were allowed to walk in free agency and Danny Amendola was the only notable receiver signed to fill in. That leaves the No. 4 receiver job up for the taking, and Powell is one of the favorites to snag the job. Read Past Outlooks

Two passes in preseason opener
WRDetroit Lions
August 8, 2019
Powell caught both of his targets for 27 yards during Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots.
ANALYSIS
The last time we saw Powell in a live game setting was in Week 17 of last season, when he drew the start against the Packers and caught six of nine targets for 103 yards. While there weren't many bright spots for the Lions on a night they got beat 31-3, Powell at least made a couple of plays and looks to have picked up where he left off from last year. The No. 4 receiver job in Detroit appears to be wide open in the wake of Jermaine Kearse's (leg) injury, and no other pass catcher did much to distinguish himself Thursday.
