Sat, 09 Aug 2014 07:20:06 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) is not participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: It is still very early in the preseason, so this is probably nothing to be concerned with at this point. Check back in the next couple days to see if Ivory gets back on the practice field.

Jets | Chris Johnson looked rusty

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 09:28:51 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson looked rusty in his debut with the team against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Aug. 7. RB Chris Ivory (rib) was injured in the game and RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) is still nursing an injury, so Johnson was the team's lone healthy back for this game. Johnson dropped a pass on a third down and lacked burst while running, rushing for just two yards and a touchdown on four carries.

Fantasy Tip: Cimini said there's no reason to be alarmed, and he's right. It's just the first preseason game. Not much was gleaned from this game with Ivory and Powell sitting out. Johnson is the most experienced of the three, and Ivory has had problems staying healthy, so CJ2K will likely be the most valuable of this three-headed monster on your draft day.

Jets | Three players injured

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 23:55:22 -0700

Three New York Jets players were injured in a 13-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Aug. 7. RB Chris Ivory (ribs) and WR David Nelson (hand) left the game, but coach Rex Ryan said afterwards both players would be fine. LB A.J. Edds (finger) broke a bone on his finger but returned to the game.

Jets | Chris Ivory injured

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 20:57:31 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) left the team's preseason game with a rib injury Thursday, Aug. 7, and did not return.

Fantasy Tip: If Ivory's injury ends up being significant, it could potentially boost the value of Chris Johnson or Bilal Powell. Ivory was set to be the team's goal-line back, and if he is out of the picture, Johnson or Powell would likely receive the carries around the goal line.

Jets | Chris Ivory gets first crack

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 16:26:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory lined up with the starters in the team's first preseason series.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Johnson is still the running back to own in the Jets' backfield. Bilal Powell is unavailable so Ivory may see more work than he would in a normal regular season game. Again, it's preseason, so take these things with a grain of salt.

Jets | Three RBs will receive playing time

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 11:50:17 -0700

New York Jets RBs Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will all receive playing time this season, and the team likely will use a running back-by-committee approach, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said there is a chance the team uses the hot hand during games.

Fantasy Tip: Committees are not great news for fantasy owners, but the team wants to use all three in their running game. Johnson probably will have the most value entering the season because of his experience. Johnson's spot in starting lineups will depend on the matchup each week. Ivory and Powell likely will be later-round options as well as handcuffs for Johnson.

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 06:45:31 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is a RB4 with enhanced value in TD-only leagues.

Jets | Chris Ivory returns

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 07:05:05 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory figures to be in the mix with Chris Johnson, but he is relegated to RB4 status.

Jets | Chris Johnson confident in role as lead back

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:04:37 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said Tuesday, July 1, that he's confident he'll be the team's lead back this year and won't be too involved in a timeshare with RBs Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. "Once the season starts and once we're playing and I'm doing my thing, I'm pretty sure if I'm making plays they're going to want to keep handing the ball off to me," Johnson said. "If they want me to continue making plays, I'm pretty sure I can't do that if I'm on the sideline." Johnson said he's "pretty much cleared" by Dr. James Andrews after coming off offseason knee surgery, and he said he's close to 100 percent health.

Fantasy Tip: After Johnson's disappointing 2013 season, it's hard to envision him ever returning to his glory days running the football. The Jets will surely look to keep him fresh, but there is room for improvement if he can prove he deserves lead-back touches; the Jets said they'll go with a hot hand if one stands out. For now, consider Johnson a risky RB3 with upside for a bit more.

Jets | To limit Chris Johnson

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 05:44:11 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's touches will be limited to keep him fresh, according to Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn. "He's got some miles on him," Lynn said. "So we're going to have to be strategic in how we use him, and when we use him, to keep him fresh so that he can be the explosive guy that I know that he can be." Johnson will be in a committee with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.

Fantasy Tip: That's quite a different stance than the one reported a couple weeks ago that they were going to give him the ball as much as possible. Johnson is a decent receiver and has more value in PPR leagues as a RB2. Ivory and Powell are depth fantasy backs that could figure in more in good matchups.

Jets | Chris Ivory injures ankle

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 12:01:01 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) rolled his ankle and did not finish the Wednesday, June 18 practice. Head coach Rex Ryan said it's not severe but that Ivory will probably sit out of practice Thursday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: As long as it doesn't turn out to be anything serious, Ivory should still have an important role behind Chris Johnson. There are still a couple months of watching and waiting left, but consider Ivory a flex option at this point.

Jets | Chris Johnson could be main running back

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 11:38:32 -0700

If New York Jets RB Chris Johnson can prove he's still an explosive, dynamic and productive running back, he could be in line for most of the workload, according to a source. The New York Jets' distribution of backfield touches hasn't been panned out yet. Running backs coach Anthony Lynn said Johnson is "definitely going to get the ball" and has plenty left in the tank.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been underrated ever since he landed in New York. Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will take away some playing time, but Johnson is the Jets running back to own this season. As long as he stays healthy, which he has his whole career, he's a safe RB3 option, with RB2 potential if he does end up as the team's main running back.

Jets | Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory to be tandem

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:48:23 -0700

The New York Jets will use RBs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory as a tandem this upcoming season and have them split carries. RB Bilal Powell will be the team's No. 3 running back.

Jets | Sign Chris Johnson

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:29:09 -0700

The New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson (Titans) to a two-year deal Wednesday, April 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has lost a lot in recent seasons, and he's, at best, a weak RB3 for your fantasy squad. Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will spell Johnson frequently, and Ivory figures to be the short-yardage, goal-line back. With Marty Mornhinweg as the offensive coordinator, Johnson could be used frequently out of the backfield as a pass catcher, making him more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Jets | Not concerned with Chris Johnson's work ethic

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 14:42:23 -0700

The New York Jets are not concerned with free-agent RB Chris Johnson's (Titans) work ethic, and they'd be excited with a running back tandem of Johnson and RB Chris Ivory.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory's matchup against the Oakland Raiders is a nice one, but the lack of production from the Jets' offense as a whole makes him a weak play. Use Ivory mainly as a flex option in deeper leagues.

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 15:42:24 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign that Ivory was able to do at least something in the first day of practice. However, it might take a lot for him to be able to play against the Miami Dolphins. Plan to leave him on your bench.

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:34:59 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was seen on the side working with trainers in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory's injury looks serious enough to keep him out of action this weekend against the Miami Dolphins, so get him out of your lineups. Bilal Powell would become the main runner again and is an RB2 this weekend.

Jets | Chris Ivory carves up old mates

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 15:32:27 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory carried 18 times for 139 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints, his former team.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory has managed to go over 100 yards in two of the past three games. While he struggled in Week 8, that was more due to a lopsided score and the team getting away from the run to play catch-up. Ivory has emerged as a must-start RB2 or flex fantasy play in all formats.

Jets | Chris Ivory carries load in OT win

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 21:32:48 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory was leaned upon heavily in the Week 7 overtime victory against the New England Patriots, posting a career-high 34 carries for 104 yards. RB Bilal Powell, who had been the primary ball carrier, managed just three touches. "Bilal only carried three times but Ivory had the hot hand and we fed him," head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 20. "We rode Ivory a little more than normal, but it was a good game."

Fantasy Tip: If Ivory can duplicate this type of production, he would be a solid RB2 or flex play in all fantasy formats. However, don't discount Powell just yet, as he showed earlier this season while Ivory was sidelined, that he could carry the mail and do it well. Keep him reserved, but don't drop him just yet.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory should be good to go against the New England Patriots. Now that Mike Goodson (knee) is done for the year, Ivory is worth owning in deeper leagues as a handcuff to Bilal Powell.

Jets | Bigger role coming for Chris Ivory

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 13:36:21 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is expected to have a bigger role in the backfield with RB Mike Goodson (knee) now out for the season. Ivory had only four carries in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he has 115 yards on 34 carries this season. "It hasn't been tough yet," Ivory said. "I don't feel like I'm sitting back waiting on my time. I just feel like we could run the ball more. We're not doing that, but I think it will get better."

Fantasy Tip: Ivory should now be a waiver wire target in deeper leagues for those either hoping to handcuff Bilal Powell or build running back depth.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory said he'd like to see the team run the ball more. "I would like to see us run the ball more," Ivory said. "I really feel like when you can run the ball that opens up everything else. It would take a little (pressure) off (QB Geno Smith)."

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is listed as probable for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory likely will share playing time with Mike Goodson as the backups at running back with Bilal Powell getting most of the work at the position. Ivory likely will not be more than a flex option this week.
