Chris Ivory reaches end zone again in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jets running back Chris Ivory gained 43 yards on 13 carries with one touchdown while also adding three yards on one reception in his team's 31-24 loss to the Packers in Week 2.

For the second straight week, Ivory and Chris Johnson both received at least 10 carries, and for the second straight week, Ivory led the team in rushing. With the team already up 14-3, he took a handoff up the middle for a four-yard touchdown, which was upheld upon review, early in the second quarter. It was his second touchdown in as many weeks after breaking off a 71-yard score in Week 1.

The Jets could shift the focus of the running game towards Ivory after he impressed in each of the team's first two games. He'll look to keep rolling when the Bears come to town in Week 3.


Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson shine in Week 1


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) The Jets running back duo of Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory played at a high level Sunday in Week 1 against the Raiders in a 19-14 victory.

Johnson had 13 carries for 68 yards and five catches for 38 yards and a touchdown on five targets. And Ivory had 10 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown, which came on a 71-yard run.

The Jets play at Green Bay in Week 2.


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.


Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory in midseason form vs. Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Jets running backs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory both looked sharp Friday night against the Giants in exhibition play.

Johnson ripped a 17-yards run in the opening quarter and turned a pair of short passes into long plays. He played into the first series of the third quarter with the backups and racked up 77 yards of total offense. He took nine handoffs for 42 yards, averaging 4.7 yards per attempt. He caught both of his targets for 35 yards.

Ivory returned to action and made his presence felt as well. He ripped an 18-yard run and finished the game with a team-high 50 yards on six carries while being limited to one half of work. He caught one pass for 23 yards.

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.

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.
