Rank Among Leaders
|Chris Ivory dominating the playing time in New York |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/29/14) For the first time all season, Chris Johnson averaged more yards per carry than Chris Ivory for the Jets in Week 4 against the Lions Sunday. Still, Ivory dominated the playing time, as he continues to look like the best option in the Jets' backfield.
Johnson led the team with 7.3 yards per carry, though that number is skewed by the way his day went. Johnson had just 9 yards on five carries until his 35-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, his first play of more than 12 yards on the season. By comparison, Ivory's 84 yards on 17 carries still looks pretty solid, especially for Fantasy owners looking forward.
The snap count numbers aren't much better for Johnson, who saw the field for just 28 percent of the team's plays; that was down from 36 the previous week. Ivory, on the other hand, jumped up from 34 percent to 58 percent in Week 4.
Johnson isn't going to disappear, especially not if he can show more examples of the big-play ability that made him so dangerous in the past. However, Fantasy owners should absolutely consider Ivory the top option in the Jets' backfield until further notice.

(9/28/14) Jets running back Chris Ivory racked up 100 yards of total offense in a Week 4 loss to the Lions on Sunday.
Ivory got the start and ripped a 17-yard run right before the end of the first half, his longest gain of the day. He took 17 carries for 84 yards, averaging 4.9 yards per attempt. He also caught two of the six passes thrown his way for 16 yards in a 24-17 defeat.
Ivory has 50 carries for 274 yards on the ground through four games. He will look to shoulder the load in Week 5 against San Diego.
|Chris Ivory outshining Chris Johnson through three games |

(9/24/14) When perusing ProFootballFocus.com's stats on running backs, I discovered some interesting numbers for the Jets' backfield, and they shouldn't make Chris Johnson owners very happy.
Through the first three games of the season, Chris Ivory leads the league in Yards After Contact, per rushing attempt, at 3.9 yards. That goes a long way in explaining how Ivory ranks among the league leaders in yards per carry overall, at 5.7. Unfortunately, it also makes it hard to forgive Johnson's poor performance this far, as he is averaging just 3.5 yards per carry overall.
Johnson and Ivory have seen a nearly identical workload through three games, but Ivory has looked like the more competent back. Johnson is averaging nearly half as many yards after contact as Ivory, at just 2.1 -- this despite running behind the same line.
Head coach Rex Ryan suggested after Week 3 that Ivory is likely to cut into Johnson's playing time moving forward, noting, "There's not a whole lot of guys who want to tackle him." The duo has split playing time nearly evenly so far, but Ivory looks like the better bet moving forward.
The Jets face a tough run defense in Week 4 with the Lions coming into town, so you might not want to rely on either one this Sunday. Moving forward, however, Ivory looks like the guy to own here.
|It's a 'possibility' Chris Ivory will get more playing time |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/23/14) After totaling 94 yards (44 rushing) during Monday's loss against the Bears and averaging 5.7 yards per carry through three games, Jets running back Chris Ivory might start to see more reps moving forward.
"Maybe Chris Ivory will get more time," coach Rex Ryan told reporters Tuesday. "He's running hard and there's not a whole lot of guys who want to tackle him. Will we play Chris Ivory more? That's a possibility."
|Chris Ivory delivers a punishing 96 yards |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(9/23/14) Jets running back Chris Ivory bowled over multiple would-be tacklers in Monday night's loss to the Bears. He ran 10 times for 44 yards and caught all four of his targets for 52 yards.
Ivory was clearly more effective than backfield partner Chris Johnson, who averaged 3.4 yards per carry and did not make a catch. Ivory plays the Lions in Week 4.
|Chris Ivory is expected to share playing time with Chris Johnson this season, and we’ll find out in training camp who will get more touches. Based on last season, if Ivory gets the ball enough, he could be a beast. Ivory had five games in 2013 with at least 15 carries, and he had double digits in Fantasy points in all five outings. He played as we expected last season, battling a hamstring injury early in the year and losing touches to Bilal Powell, before closing the season with solid production. Adding Johnson clearly hurts the outlook for Ivory, but he can still be a useful flex option. Johnson has to prove he’s better than what he showed with the Titans in 2013 when he averaged 3.9 yards per carry compared to Ivory, who was at 4.6. Ivory is limited as a receiver with five career catches, but if the Jets are smart they’ll lean on him over Johnson as a rusher since he’s more physical and likely has better burst at this point in their respective careers. The best plan for Ivory is let him fall to you in Round 9 or later and hopefully he’ll do better than five games with double digits in Fantasy points this year.
