One game after rushing 21 times and posting his second 100-yard effort of the season, Ivory was the leader in the rushing game again, though the team's rushing leader ended up being backup quarterback Michael Vick. Both of Ivory's scores came from two yards out in the second quarter. He has delivered 475 yards on 101 carries with five touchdowns and 12 receptions for 103 yards.

The Jets also saw running back Bilal Powell deliver in limited action, rushing for 28 yards and a touchdown on four carries. Chris Johnson managed only three carries for seven yards while adding two receptions for 13 yards in the loss. The Jets will hit the road to face the Chiefs in Week 9.

Jets backfield trio comes up with huge dud on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Jets backfield could not exactly be called a three-headed monster after their performance Sunday against the Broncos - though their production could be called monstrous.

Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell combined for just 20 yards rushing on 13 carries. Ivory, who had been performing well recently, was mired at minus-1 yard after five attempts and finished with seven yards on eight rushes. He did snag a pass for 14 yards while Johnson added a reception for two yards.


Jets' Bilal Powell does little Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Jets get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jets three-headed backfield precludes strong Fantasy option


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) They say if you have two quarterbacks vying for the starting spot, you actually have no starting quarterback. The same might be said about featured backs.

At least those seeking that title with the Jets. Though newly acquired Chris Johnson is coming off a sixth consecutive 1,000-yard season with Tennessee, but his 3.9 YPC average in 2013 was the worst of his career. Chris Ivory followed strong performances with weak ones throughout last season and Bilal Powell also proved inconsistent.

The trio combined to rush for 223 yards on 43 carries for a 5.2 average in the preseason, which prompted Rex Ryan to declare that the three will alternate in the regular season. Though Johnson is the most likely to emerge as the featured back, it seems clear that all will receive enough opportunities in the season opener Sunday against an improved Oakland defense to make none of them more than a second option in shallower leagues and flex in deeper ones.

Fantasy owners should monitor their reps to determine if any of them emerge as a featured back.


Bilal Powell returns to action, scores TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Jets running back Bilal Powell, who missed the preseason opener with a hamstring injury, returned to action and found the end zone Saturday night against Cincinnati.

Powell ripped a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He worked the entire first half with the first-team offense, splitting the load with Chris Johnson. He finished with four carries for 41 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for 13 yards.

Bilal Powell, Greg Salas among Jets inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Running back Bilal Powell (hamstring) and receiver Greg Salas (undisclosed) are among the Jets' inactives for Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts. Salas' absence could hurt him as he battles for a roster spot at the crowded receiver position.

Jets expect to go with 'committee approach' at running back


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters Tuesday he envisions running back Chris Johnson sharing carries with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell this season.

"I definitely think it's going to be a committee approach," Ryan said, per the New York Daily News.


Chris Ivory listed as Jets' starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Jets listed Chris Ivory atop their running back depth chart, followed by Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell, reports the New York Daily News. The paper cautions not to read too much into the initial depth chart.

Bilal Powell won't be forgotten man in Jets' backfield


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Despite the presence of Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Daryl Richardson in the same backfield, Jets running back Bilal Powell should see plenty of playing time, reports the New York Post. Powell ran for 697 last year and has proven to be durable and versatile, the paper noted.

"Powell has a funny way of being the last running back standing, and it could happen again this year," the paper said, noting Johnson is coming off knee surgery and Ivory has battled injuries throughout his career.


How will the Jets split carries this season?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) The Jets have to figure out who will get the majority of carries this season out of Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Daryl Richardson, Alex Green and Mike Goodson, reports ESPN.

The report says two of them likely won't make the team, but figuring out the carries could be tough. Johnson averaged 18 rushes per game in his six seasons with the Titans. Ivory averaged 12 per game last season as the Jets' leading rusher. Powell averaged 11 last season. That's a total of 41 rushes for their top three backs.

"Everybody’s goal is to put wins on the board," said Johnson. "We’re not really worried about the carries, who's going to play this down and that down. We’ve all just got one focus and that’s winning."


Jets backfield takes shape following Johnson signing


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2014) With the Jets signing Chris Johnson on Wednesday, the rest of their backfield should start to take shape, reports the New York Daily News.

The report says Johnson and Chris Ivory will work as a tandem, and Bilal Powell will be the No. 3 running back. Mike Goodson is expected to be released before the start of the season.


Jets 'pretty set' at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) The Jets have a ton of needs to address in free agency and the draft, but running back isn't one of them, reports the New York Post. Chris Ivory can be a "strong feature back" if he stays healthy, Bilal Powell is a "nice backup," and Mike Goodson can provide the "speed component" assuming he recovers well from his knee injury, the report said.

The paper says general manager John Idzik doesn't need to chase running backs in free agency but possibly should draft one in the later rounds "to see if you can develop a back behind the top three."


Report: Jets interested in Ben Tate, Donald Brown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Although their greatest needs are at wide receiver and tight end, the Jets are exploring free agent running backs Ben Tate (Texans) and Donald Brown (Colts), reports ESPN.com. The news could mean the Jets aren't totally satisfied with the backfield combo of Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.


Bilal Powell outshines Chris Ivory in Week 17


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory took a surprise backseat to Bilal Powell Sunday, in a 20-7 win over the Dolphins in Week 17.

One week after rushing for 109 yards on 20 carries, Ivory touched the ball just five times, finishing with 19 yards on the ground. Instead, Powell got the bulk of the work, carrying the ball 21 times for 76 yards, while adding a 30-yard completion out of the wildcat.

The Jets used a running-back-by-committee approach for much of the season, so the two players ended up with similar overall numbers. Ivory led the team with 833 yards on 182 carries and three touchdowns, while Powell accumulated 697 yards on 176 carries, with one touchdown.
