Jets | Chris Ivory takes the lead

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 05:50:05 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory played 37 snaps (58% of the offense) in Week 4. RBs Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell only played on 18 and 11 snaps, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is the clear leader right now and should be owned in all formats. Johnson could still become a factor, more so in PPR leagues, but it's tough to start him right now.

Jets | Chris Johnson wants more carries

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:25:40 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said he will be a more efficient rusher if he receives more carries per game, but he said he isn't going to complain to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. "It's still early," Johnson said. "I know what Marty wants to do, and I know what this offense wants to do. We want to run the ball. I don't think it's time right now to go in there and talk to Marty and try to tell him what he needs to do."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson leads the team with 35 carries this season, but teammate Chris Ivory is averaging 2.2 more yards per carry and has scored twice. Johnson seems to have lost the extra step that allowed him to rip off the huge runs on a weekly basis in his prime, and without his big-play ability, he doesn't offer much upside. Throw in the fact that Johnson hasnít been seeing much action around the goal line, and his $6,300 salary (12.4% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 4 seems a little steep, especially against a Detroit defense that is allowing the second-fewest rush yards in the NFL through three games.

Jets | Chris Johnson gets full reps

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:41:42 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($6,300, 12.60% of cap) has received fewer touches than Chris Ivory in back-to-back weeks. The Jets face the Detroit Lions, who are allowing the second fewest rushing yards per game, too. Johnson is not a worthy investment this week.

Jets | Chris Ivory breaking more tackles

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 16:41:42 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory has forced .42 missed tackles per touch this year, while RB Chris Johnson has forced only .12 missed tackles per touch.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory had 96 total yards from scrimmage in Week 3, while Johnson struggled to find running room. The Jets have split the running duties virtually right down the middle through three games, but it looks as though Ivory, who's been more productive, might see more work moving forward. At $5,700 (11.4% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 4 versus the Detroit Lions, Ivory appears to be a fine play.

Jets | Chris Johnson limited in practice

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:47:16 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It may be tough for Johnson to live up to expectations in Week 3 with a FantasyScore price of $6,200 against a tough Bears defense. That money may be better spent elsewhere.

Jets | Limited practice for Chris Johnson

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:42:43 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: After a big Week 1, Johnson had only 12 carries for 21 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2. He's involved in a committee with Chris Ivory, and he may find little room to run against the Chicago Bears in Week 3.

Jets | NYJ RB trio splits snaps

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 08:47:55 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson played 27 snaps in Week 2, while RB Chris Ivory played 27 and RB Bilal Powell played 17 snaps Sunday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory's play could have elevated himself in the committee. He has 23 rushes for 145 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson has 25 carries for 89 yards and no scores. Powell has just five rushing attempts. Ivory has been a cheap flex option on FantasyScore thus far, but his stock is rising for the Week 3 tilt against the Chicago Bears. Johnson is a weaker flex option at this point.

Jets | Ivory, Chris Johnson split work

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 07:08:25 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson played in 33 of the 70 offensive snaps inn Week 1. RB Chris Ivory played in 30 of the 70 offensive snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is still the RB to own as a low-end RB2 or great RB3, while Ivory has played himself into flex consideration on FantasyScore.
