08/19/2014 10:40 2014 Draft Prep: The RB landscape
Owners typically go one of two ways with running backs. It's either invest early or stockpile late. Our Jamey Eisenberg shares his philosophy for Draft Day 2014.
Chris Ivory is expected to share playing time with Chris Johnson this season, and we’ll find out in training camp who will get more touches. Based on last season, if Ivory gets the ball enough, he could be a beast. Ivory had five games in 2013 with at least 15 carries, and he had double digits in Fantasy points in all five outings. He played as we expected last season, battling a hamstring injury early in the year and losing touches to Bilal Powell, before closing the season with solid production. Adding Johnson clearly hurts the outlook for Ivory, but he can still be a useful flex option. Johnson has to prove he’s better than what he showed with the Titans in 2013 when he averaged 3.9 yards per carry compared to Ivory, who was at 4.6. Ivory is limited as a receiver with five career catches, but if the Jets are smart they’ll lean on him over Johnson as a rusher since he’s more physical and likely has better burst at this point in their respective careers. The best plan for Ivory is let him fall to you in Round 9 or later and hopefully he’ll do better than five games with double digits in Fantasy points this year.
