Chris Ivory looks like Jets' goal-line back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn said the team is leaning toward Chris Ivory as its goal-line and short-yardage back, reports the New York Daily News.

"If we were playing tomorrow, Chris Ivory would be on the goal line, obviously," Lynn said. "Sometimes in those situations you have an extra defender that you can’t block, and you need a back that can take him on."

Ivory (6-foot, 222 pounds) is the "best power runner in the game," Lynn added. Ivory ran for three touchdowns last year.


Chris Ivory back at practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) After missing some work with a hamstring injury, Chris Ivory of the Jets was back at practice on Friday according to the New York Post

Chris Ivory has 'a little bit of a hamstring' issue


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said running back Chris Ivory has "a little bit of a hamstring, but he's fine," reports ESPN.com. Ivory sat out team drills on the first day of practice.

Ivory has a history of hamstring injuries but was able to play 15 games last year.


Chris Ivory's carries expected to drop


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) With the Jets' addition of Chris Johnson, running back Chris Ivory most likely will get "a decent number of carries, but not as many as he did last year," reports the New York Post. Ivory averaged 12 carries per game last year while amassing 833 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

The paper said it will be interesting to see how Ivory reacts to a smaller workload. "One of the reasons he was unhappy in New Orleans was he was part of a crowded backfield and did not feel he was being used enough," the paper said. "Will he bite his tongue if he is riding the bench?"


Rex Ryan says Chris Ivory ankle injury not serious


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Jets running back Chris Ivory missed the end of the team's minicamp practice Wednesday after he "kind of rolled an ankle" according to coach Rex Ryan via the Newark Star-Ledger. The injury isn't considered "severe" according to Ryan but he said he'd probably hold Ivory out of practice. 

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.


Report: Jets like idea of Chris Johnson-Chris Ivory combo


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) The Jets "really like" the idea of a backfield featuring running backs Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson, reports the New York Daily News. Ivory would provide the power, Johnson the speed.

Tennessee cut Johnson on Friday, and the Jets are expected to pursue him. No visit, however, has been scheduled.

Ivory led the Jets last season with 833 rushing yards, averaging 4.6 yards per carry.


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. 


Chris Ivory, Santonio Holmes able to play Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory (quadriceps, ankle) and Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) are active and in uniform for Week 17 against the Dolphins, and that doesn't come as much of a surprise. Both players were considered probable on the injury report for the game. 

Chris Ivory looking to finish season strong


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) The Dolphins defense hasn't done a good job against the run this season, a trend Jets running back Chris Ivory is hoping continues into Week 17.

Ivory has run the ball well recently, averaging 5.1 yards per carry over the last four. That includes a 61-yard effort on just 12 carries in Week 12 against the Dolphins, a 23-3 loss. He should have some success against a team that allowed 18.9 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, the ninth-highest mark in the league.

Ivory had already set a career-high in rushing yards, a mark he will only improve on in Week 17. Given a solid matchup, he can be considered a solid No. 2 Fantasy running back for the finale. 


Chris Ivory able to practice in full


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Ivory is dealing with a quadriceps/ankle injury. Ivory is coming off a game in which he received 20 carries. It's the second time this season he's received at least 20 carries in a game.


Browns try to stop Chris Ivory - but no soap


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The inconsistency that plagued Jets running back Chris Ivory earlier in the season is becoming a distant memory. He provided his finest performance Sunday since Nov. 3 - and that's saying something.

Ivory rushed for 109 yards on just 20 carries in the defeat of Cleveland. His 5.5 YPC average was typical of his recent production. Ivory has 588 yards on 103 carries for a 5.7 mark in the last six games.

His numbers against the Browns were particularly impressive considering he managed just 12 yards on the ground in the first quarter. He got untracked with a 21-yard run late in the second quarter on a scoring drive that helped the Jets begin their comeback and added a 28-yard burst in the middle of the third.

Ivory needs a career-high 186 yards in the season finale against Miami to reach 1,000 for the season.


Chris Ivory showing Fantasy appeal with consistent carries


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Jets featured back Chris Ivory has received the consistent playing time he was seeking in the first half of the season and has taken advantage of it. His Fantasy owners have reaped some benefits.

Not that Ivory has run wild. But he has rushed for 475 yards on 83 carries in his last six games for a fine 5.7 YPC average and scored three touchdowns during that stretch. His value, however, is weakened in PPR leagues. Ivory has just two catches all season as he has shared time with Bilal Powell.

Week 16 foe Cleveland still boasts one of the better rush defenses in the NFL. The Browns rank third in the NFL in YPC at 3.7, but they have the tendency to give up long runs and are coming off a game Sunday against Chicago in which they surrendered a season-high 179 yards on the ground.

Ivory is ranked 14th among all NFL backs this week by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writer Dave Richard and 21st by his two compartiots. He is a viable No. 2 back or flex option, though owners must hope he sneaks into the end zone because he won't be piling up points through the air.


Chris Ivory collects 66 yards in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory ran the ball well but did not receive enough touches during Sunday's loss to the Panthers in Week 15.

Ivory split carries with Bilal Powell and broke free for a 35-yard run in the second quarter. He had six carries in the first half and just five touches in the final two quarters. He rushed for a team-high 66 yards (6.0 yards per carry) on 11 carries in a 30-20 defeat.

Ivory has not rushed for more than 76 yards over his previous four games. He has 157 carries for 705 yards and three touchdowns this season. He'll look to stay productive in Week 16 against the Browns.

Chris Ivory aiming to score in back-to-back games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory will be looking to get in the end zone in back-to-back games for the second time this season heading into Week 15 against the Panthers in Carolina.

Ivory had 18 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Raiders. It was his first rushing touchdown since Week 11 and only his third of the year. He'll face a stingy Carolina defense that has allowed only 79.4 yards per game on the ground, the fewest among any team in the league. Opposing running backs have only scored 12.08 Fantasy points per game this season.

Ivory has shown some flashes of productivity over his last five games, averaging 5.7 yards per carry over that span. Still, he may not get a chance to stay productive against the best run defense in the league. Consider Ivory a low-end starting option in the majority of formats for Week 15.

Great individual effort leads to Chris Ivory's third touchdown


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory contributed his third rushing touchdown during a 37-27 win Week 14 vs. Oakland. Ivory had a team-high 76 rushing yards on 18 carries in the win.

Ivory got off to a quick start, rushing for 20 yards on his first three carries on the team's opening drive. Though, he quieted down after that, finishing with just 34 rushing yards on seven carries in the first half.

Ivory wasn't making much noise in the second half either until he bullied his way in for a 15-yard score with 8:58 remaining, which sealed the win for New York. Ivory broke at least four tackles in what turned into a great individual effort, which came two plays after Geno Smith extended the drive with a 32-yard scramble on 3rd-and-5.

All three of Ivory's touchdowns have come in the last five games, and it's his highest season total since recording five rushing touchdowns as a rookie in 2010 with the Saints. The Jets are back in action Week 15 at Carolina.


Jets clear a slew of injured players Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Jets guard Willie Colon (calf), cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip), defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (back), wide receiver Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring), running back Chris Ivory (ankle), wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow), center Nick Mangold (wrist), linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee), cornerback Dee Milliner (wrist), wide receiver Greg Salas (finger), quarterback Geno Smith (right wrist), defensive Muhammad Wilkerson (wrist) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) were all cleared to play Week 14 vs. Oakland. All of these players were listed as probable.

Nine offensive players probable on Jets injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) The Jets are quite healthy as they prepare to host Oakland on Sunday. All 14 players on their Friday injury list are probable, including nine offensive players.

They are linemen Willie Colon (calf) and Nick Mangold (wrist), tight end Kellen Winslow (knee), wide receiver Stephen Hill (knee), Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring), Jeremy Kerley (elbow) and Greg Salas (finger), running back Chris Ivory (ankle) and quarterback Geno Smith (wrist).


Chris Ivory a good option when Jets don't get blown out


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) There was some concern last week Jets running back Chris Ivory might not be effective against the Dolphins because he came into the matchup nursing an ankle injury. Ivory, however, put all doubts to rest by averaging 5.1 yards per carry (12 carries for 61 yards).

Ivory might have gotten more work last week had the Jets' offense been more productive in a 23-3 loss. Ivory is surely hoping for more work Week 14 vs. Oakland.

Running backs have had decent success against the Raiders. In the the last 10 games against Oakland, running backs are averaging 98.1 rushing yards, 38 receiving yards and 18.5 Fantasy points per week. Dallas running backs torched Oakland for 145 rushing yards and three touchdowns Week 13.

Since Week 7, Ivory is averaging 4.8 yards per carry in his last six games. It's just that he's had 12 or less carries in three of those games -- all blowout losses. Ivory could be a really good Fantasy option Week 14, if the Jets can hang with the Raiders. Or he could be a disappointing option, if the Jets get blown out again.

It's probably safest to consider Ivory a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy running back or flex option Week 14.


Chris Ivory looks fine despite ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory saw a larger share of the workload than Bilal Powell in Week 13 against the Dolphins, despite coming back from an ankle injury.

Ivory led the team with 61 yards on 12 rushing attempts, with a long carry of 32 yards. He added one catch for 12 yards, the only time he was targeted in the passing game.

Ivory rushed the ball just nine times last week thanks to his injury, so it was certainly good to see him able to handle a larger role. He will try to get going in Week 14 against the Raiders. 


Chris Ivory takes the field Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory (ankle) is active and in uniform for Week 13 against the Dolphins Sunday, after being listed on the injury report as probable. Ivory suffered the ankle injury last week, but has been able to practice in recent days in spite of it.  

Top Jets dominate list of probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Nearly all the Jets deemed probable for Sunday against the Dolphins are key starters. All were full practice participants on Friday.

They are offensive linemen Nick Mangold (wrist) and Willie Colon (calf), defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson (wrist) and Kenrick Ellis (back), wide receiver Stephen Hill (knee) and Greg Salas (finger), running back Chris Ivory (ankle), tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) and cornerback Dee Milliner (wrist).
