Chris Ivory to see smaller role in 2015?


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/9/2015) Although there's a good chance the Jets will release running back Chris Johnson, running back Chris Ivory still could face a smaller role due to Chan Gailey's offense, reports ESPN.com.

Gailey's spread attack "puts a premium on a running back who can play in space and catch the ball," the website said. "That could mean a smaller role for Ivory."

Ivory (6-0, 222 pounds) is entering the final year of his deal. He played 42 percent of the snaps last season, compared to 37 percent for Johnson, per the website.

ESPN.com says the "ideal fit" for the Jets would be impending free agent C.J. Spiller, who had his best year, 2012, playing for Gailey in Buffalo.


Report: Jets 'probably' will release RB Chris Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/5/2015) Jets running back Chris Johnson is scheduled to count $5.25 million against the cap in 2015, "steep for a player who would be no more than a part-time back again," reports ESPN.com. The Jets would save $3.5 million by releasing Johnson, and "that probably will be the outcome."

The move could happen relatively soon, because the team has until Feb. 16 to decide whether to pay Johnson's $500,000 option bonus. Johnson, who signed a two-year, $8 million contract last offseason, will turn 30 in September and "isn't close to being the player he once was," the report said.

Splitting time with Chris Ivory, Johnson rushed 155 times for 663 yards (4.3 ypc) and a touchdown, adding 24 catches for 151 yards and another score. He was arrested last month in his hometown of Orlando for open carrying of a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor.


Jets' Percy Harvin, Nick Mangold deemed questionable in Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin (rib) and center Nick Mangold (ankle) are the most notable players listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale at Miami. Defensive lineman Damon Harrison (illness), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (shoulder), safety Dawan Landry (illness), cornerback Darrin Walls (shoulder) and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson (toe, illness) joined Mangold and Harvin as questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: Safety Antonio Allen (hand), guard Willie Colon (knee), kicker Nick Folk (right hip), running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) and running back Chris Johnson (knee).

Safety Rontez Miles (shin) was the only player on New York's final injury report of the season ruled out for Sunday.


Jets add RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) to injury report


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/25/2014) The Jets added running back Chris Ivory to the injury report Thursday, saying he was limited by a hamstring injury, reports ESPN.com. Ivory, who's battled hamstring problems in the past, leads New York with 792 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

The Jets are 6-point underdogs in Sunday's season finale at Miami. Ivory was held to 62 rushing yards on 16 carries in the Week 13 home loss to the Dolphins.


Trio of Jets RBs combine for 100-plus yards in Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Jets running backs Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell were able to combine for 100-plus rushing yards in a 17-16 defeat to the Patriots in Week 16.

Johnson and Ivory each had 10-plus carries, while Powell took five handoffs for 21 yards. Ivory led the way with 11 carries for 53 yards. Johnson carried the ball 10 times for 30 yards. He caught his lone target for a gain of 3 yards.

New York will face Miami in Week 17.


Jets fail to get Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory on track Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Jets running backs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory failed to combine for 100 rushing yards in a 16-11 victory over the Titans Sunday.

Johnson received 10 carries and produced 55 rushing yards. He was targeted once in the passing game, but failed to catch his only target.

Ivory rushed for 25 yards on 12 carries and scored the game-winning touchdown on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter. He also caught his only passing target for 1 yard.

The Jets host the Patriots Week 16.


Jets' Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson held scoreless Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Jets running backs Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson did not reach the end zone during the Jets’ 30-24 loss to the Vikings Sunday.

Ivory had a more productive day, producing 73 rushing yards on 16 attempts including catching one pass on two targets for 4 yards. Johnson also had 16 carries, but produced just 53 rushing yards. He also added two catches on two targets for 13 yards.

The Jets will play at Tennessee Week 15.


Chris Johnson outshining Chris Ivory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Jets running back Chris Johnson has showed some signs of life in recent weeks, and appears to have earned a bit of a bigger role in the team's offense after Week 13's 16-13 loss to the Dolphins.

Johnson rushed the ball a season-high 17 times for 105 yards, both of which led the team. This is just the second time he has finished a game with more carries than Chris Ivory in the last six, though they both also had seven in the team's previous game.

Ivory had been the better runner over the first half of the season, but he has fallen off the pace of late, which has allowed Johnson to cut into his playing time a bit. Ivory is averaging 4.4 yards per carry for the season, while Johnson is now up to 4.6, and the gap is mostly from the last five games. Johnson is averaging 5.4 yards per carry, while Ivory is at 3.6 yards per carry in that span.

Neither player is a must-start Fantasy option, but Johnson is starting to show signs of being the player the Jets they were getting when they added him this offseason. The continued split workload makes it hard to rely on either player, however, so view Johnson and Ivory both as just low-end starting Fantasy options down the stretch.


Chris Ivory grinds out 62 yards


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/2/2014) Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed 16 times for 62 yards in Monday's loss to the Dolphins, his highest output since Week 7. Ivory, who was not targeted in the passing game, failed to score for the fourth straight week.

He'll visit the Vikings in Week 14.

Jets get away from running game in Week 12 loss


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/24/2014) Jets running backs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory each ran seven times in Monday's 38-3 loss to the Bills. Johnson gained 40 yards, Ivory 31, but the Jets got away from the ground game as their deficit mounted.

Johnson caught three of four passes for 22 yards, while Ivory hauled in all three of his targets for 7 yards.

They'll face the Dolphins in Week 13.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Several Jets backs contribute to upset defeat of Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Jets divided up their carries effectively Sunday against Pittsburgh with Chris Ivory leading the way.

Ivory rushed for 33 yards on seven carries early, then did a lot of standing around on the sideline before returning to finish with 51 yards on 14 attempts. All-purpose Percy Harvin had 33 yards on six rushes while adding three catches for 23 yards. Chris Johnson added 23 yards on seven attempts and one reception for 12 yards. Bilal Powell managed four yards on his only run.


Jets running backs as unreliable as ever


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Just one week removed from a two-touchdown game and just two weeks removed from a 20-carry game, Chris Ivory gained a measly 22 yards on eight carries Week 9 at Kansas City. Change-of-pace option Chris Johnson was better, gaining 69 yards on 11 carries and 32 on two catches, but he got his usual allotment of touches. If not for a couple big plays -- specifically, a 21-yard run in the second quarter and a 26-yard catch in the third, his performance would have been just as forgettable.

It's further evidence that you have no way to predict how either player will perform in a given week. For Ivory, it depends on both the score of the game (Week 7 was a rare close one for the Jets) and whether or not the Jets get inside the 5-yard line (which they rarely do). For Johnson, it depends whether or not he breaks a long one, which is especially unpredictable on a limited number of touches.

It's why I don't care to start either of running back in a standard 12-team league. In anything deeper, you may not have a choice, but Ivory and Johnson are just too unreliable for Week 10 against Pittsburgh.


Jets RBs total more than 100 rushing yards in Week 9 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets running back Chris Johnson had one of his better games of the season, and New York running backs totaled more than 100 rushing yards during a 24-10 loss Week 9 at Kansas City.

Johnson led the way with a team-high 69 rushing yards on 11 carries. His longest rush went 21 yards. Chris Ivory added 22 rushing yards on eight carries, while Bilal Powell had 20 rushing yards on five carries. Although, no Jets running back had a touchdown Sunday.

Johnson was the only running back to catch a pass, totaling two receptions for 32 yards. He was targeted three times.

The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh.


Chris Ivory scores two of Jets' three rushing TDs in Week 8 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Jets running back Chris Ivory led the team's three-headed rushing attack Sunday, racking up 43 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in his team's 43-23 loss to the Bills in Week 8.

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.


Chris Ivory still the No. 1 option


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) If anything good came out of the Jets' 43-23 drubbing at the hands of the Bills in Week 8, it might just be that the team finally seems to be going away from a timeshare at running back.

Chris Johnson received just three carries in Sunday's game, the second time in three games he has recorded that total. His backfield mate Chris Ivory saw the majority of the work, rushing the ball 13 times for 43 yards and two touchdowns, giving him three over the last two weeks.

Ivory has been the more impressive runner for the Jets this season, but Fantasy owners have had to deal with concerns about his role throughout the season, with Johnson getting 10-plus carries on four separate occasions. However, Ivory has 46 more carries than Johnson over the last five games, and is clearly the top option.

Ivory makes for a solid Fantasy starter moving forward, while Johnson is little more than a reserve option at this point. Keep Ivory active in Week 9, even with a tough matchup against the Chiefs on the way.


One and done for Jets running backs?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson each turned in his best game of the season (or close to it) Week 7 at New England, with Ivory contributing 107 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and Johnson going for 61 yards on 13 carries. Ivory had averaged just 44.4 rushing yards in his previous five games, and Johnson had averaged just 26.4.

You know the number that jumps out to me in all of that? How likely are those two to get a combined 34 carries again? Their previous combined high was 25, and that came way back in Week 2. They managed to keep it close against the Patriots in Week 7, but that won't be the norm for a 1-6 team with Geno Smith at quarterback.

Besides, they host Buffalo in Week 8. The Bills rank fourth against the run, allowing 80.4 yards per game and 3.2 yards per carry. They haven't allowed a touchdown on the ground all season.

It was nice to see Ivory and Johnson can still perform well when they get the opportunity, but they won't get the opportunity often and wouldn't be able to make the most of it this week anyway. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Ivory among their top 24 running backs for the week, but for me, that's too high.


Jets RB Chris Ivory gets back on track in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Jets running back Chris Ivory bounced back with a productive performance, cracking the century mark and scoring his third touchdown of the season in his team's loss to the Patriots in Week 7.

Ivory gashed New England's front line for 69 yards on 14 attempts in the first half. He leaped his way over his blockers and into the end zone from 1 yard out on the opening drive of the second half. Ivory finished the game with a season-high 107 yards on the ground on 21 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per carry. He caught all four of his targets for 18 yards in a 27-25 defeat.

Ivory has rushed for 432 yards through seven games. He has two 100-yard performances this season. He'll look for his third at home Week 8 against the Bills.


Nothing changes for Chris Ivory


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) If you own Chris Ivory in Fantasy, you've probably gotten used to him giving you 40-50 yards on 10-12 carries. So it was nothing less than a shock -- a shock, I say! -- to see him contribute just 7 yards on eight carries Week 6 against Denver.

But it was a tough matchup. The Broncos entered the day allowing 88.3 yards rushing yards per game and just 3.5 per carry. And it's not like some other Jets running back did what Ivory couldn't. Chris Johnson had three carries for 9 yards, and Bilal Powell had two for 4.

Bottom line: This performance for Ivory in no way changes his role or Fantasy relevance, which is both good and bad news. The good news is that he's still the Jets go-to ball carrier. The bad news is he's confined to about 40-50 yards on 10-12 carries in that role.

Ivory is worth rostering in Fantasy as a bye-week replacement and nothing more.


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' Chris Ivory leads team in rushing yards Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Jets running back Chris Ivory led the club with 44 rushing yards Week 5.

It was an awful game for the Jets on offense. The team's quarterbacks had just 60 passing yards. Ivory only received nine carries, but made the most of his work, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. He was targeted in the passing game once, but couldn't come up with the ball. 

Ivory will take on the Broncos Week 6. 


Chris Ivory dominating the playing time in New York


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) 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.
