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. 

Chris Johnson manages to score late-game touchdown
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) The struggles continued for Chris Johnson throughout most of the day, as he was practically phased out of the running attack for the Jets on Sunday at home against the Lions in Week 4. Johnson, however, managed to break off a 35-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter. 

Before the score, Johnson had only five carries. He finished six carries for 44 yards on the ground, averaging 7.3 yards per carry. He caught all two of his targets for 17 yards. Meanwhile, his running mate Chris Ivory rushed for 84 yards on 17 attempts.

Johnson will try to get back in the end zone in Week 5 against the Chargers.

Chris Johnson among injured players ruled active for Week 4
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) The following players on the injury report were listed active for the Jets in Week 4 at home against the Lions: Muhammad Wilkerson (knee), David Nelson (illness), Eric Decker (hamstring) and Chris Johnson (ankle).
Jets issue injury report for Sunday game against Lions
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/14) Cornerback Dee Milliner (quad) is the lone doubtful on the injury report released Friday by the Jets for their Week 4 clash against Detroit.

Wide receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) is questionable. The probables are offensive linemen Nick Mangold (shoulder), Dalton Freeman (knee) and Willie Colon (calf), running back Chris Johnson (ankle), wide receiver David Nelson (illness) and defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson (knee).

Chris Ivory outshining Chris Johnson through three games
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(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.
