Jets | New York has questions at running back

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:41:57 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will all be unrestricted free agents this offseason if they are not re-signed.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is expected not to re-sign, and it's unlikely that the Jets would let their three best running backs walk away. If Powell stays and the Jets don't sign anyone else, he could be the featured back in New York's offense next season.

Jets | Chris Ivory unlikely to return?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 10:22:38 -0800

New York Jets impending unrestricted free-agent RB Chris Ivory is likely to sign elsewhere this offseason. Although he racked up an AFC-best 1,070 rushing yards in 2015, he'll be 28 next month, he declined late in the season, and the Jets salary cap situation is tight. New York has seven starters headed to free agency, and they have only $14 million projected in salary cap space.

"They want to bring me back, but like I said, I think it's about the cap space. That's going to be the biggest factor as to whether I'm back or not," Ivory said. He's expected to seek at least $4 million per year on the open market.

Fantasy Tip: Although he'll only be 28, Ivory has a lot of miles on his legs, and his second-half decline in 2015 isn't a good sign. He'll likely sign elsewhere and be part of a timeshare where he could be useful as an RB3 or flex player most weeks.

Jets | Chris Ivory wants to stay with Jets

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 17:05:45 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory said he would like to re-sign with the Jets but is not sure if the team will have the salary cap space to bring him back.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory had a strong start to the 2015 season but was a bit inconsistent for the last few months. He was still able to finish the season with 1,070 yards and seven touchdowns. Ivory should be able to find a solid role with whoever he signs with this offseason and could be a middle-round pick in most leagues.

Jets | Chris Ivory probable

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 11:26:34 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (knee) was limited Friday, Jan. 1, but he's probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is a midrange option on FantasyScore against the Buffalo Bills.

Jets | Limited practice for Chris Ivory

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:53:41 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (knee) put in a limited practice Thursday, Dec. 31, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It's a positive sign for Ivory ($6,100, 12.2% of cap), and he should be able to play against the Buffalo Bills barring a setback. Buffalo is a tougher team to run against, though, and Ivory had been fading in recent weeks, making him more of a midrange daily pick this weekend.

Jets | Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell sit out

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:19:47 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory (knee) and RB Bilal Powell (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye out on the situation to see if Ivory ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) and Powell ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be able to play against the Buffalo Bills this week. Both could decent starting option in leagues if they are active with Powell being more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Jets | Three Jets limited Wednesday

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 12:45:19 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and RBs Chris Ivory (knee) and Bilal Powell (ankle) were limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30. Head coach Todd Bowles said Fitzpatrick's injury is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: These guys will need to be tracked as the week goes on, but it doesn't sound like any of them are in serious doubt of missing the last game of the season. The Buffalo Bills have been mediocre defending both the pass and the run this year, so Fitzpatrick ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) and Ivory ($6,100, 12.2%) are still decent plays, while Powell ($4,900, 9.8%) has more value in PPR leagues like FantasyScore.

Jets | Chris Ivory returns

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 11:43:06 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (knee) returned in Week 16 after being questionable to return with a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory has struggled to get going so far today. Of course, the injury didn't help. Although, if the Jets continue to pad their lead against the New England Patriots, Ivory may see more carries later in the game.

Jets | Chris Ivory questionable

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 11:08:05 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (knee) is questionable to return in Week 16 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Ivory is out, Bilal Powell will handle the backfield duties for New York. Of course, it's too late now to plug in Powell, but he's a great PPR option and may even be more versatile than Ivory. He'll be worth a look next week if Ivory is still injured.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 22 carries for 101 yards and one catch for six yards in a 30-8 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory has been up and down in recent weeks, and he topped 100 yards for the first time since Week 6. With the Jets' passing attack firing on all cylinders, Ivory has become a matchup-dependent play at FantasyScore.

Jets | Chris Ivory mostly in neutral

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 19:55:50 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory carried 10 times for 47 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. He added five receptions for 22 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory totaled less than five yards per touch, so it wasn't a great fantasy performance and he did not find the end zone, either. The Jets face a Tennessee Titans rush defense which is 15th in the league, so Ivory should rebound rather nicely.

Jets | Chris Ivory to return to the big time?

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 22:13:01 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory will meet the Miami Dolphins in Week 12. In the first game with the Dolphins in Week 4 in London it was Ivory running for a season-best 166 yards with a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is a must-start FantasyScore option since he will be facing the league's 31st-ranked rushing defense. Miami has allowed 138.6 yards per game with eight touchdowns allowed through 10 games.

Jets | Light workload for Chris Ivory

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 17:23:14 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had eight carries for 36 yards and one catch for nine yards in a 24-17 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory still led the team in carries, and the Jets didn't run the ball much as a team against a solid Houston front. Going forward, he should still be a strong RB2 at FantasyScore when the Jets draw a friendly matchup.

Jets | Chris Ivory uses acupuncture

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:06:35 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory has used acupuncture as part of his weekly rehab regimen. He has needles stuck in him twice a week in an effort to help him feel fresh and pain-free. Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, but it can also stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Ivory first started using acupuncture with the Jets in 2013. He's already carried the ball 156 times this year for 643 yards and six touchdowns in eight games. New York is cautious not to overwork Ivory down the stretch. He's averaging 19.5 carries a game and 4.1 yards per carry in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is so useful for fantasy owners because he guarantees you a healthy workload. He should see plenty of touches again in a nice matchup with the Houston Texans in Week 11. As long as he's healthy and serving as the workhorse runner, he's pretty safe in most fantasy formats.

Jets | Chris Ivory bounces back

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 21:59:16 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 18 carries for 99 yards and two catches for 36 yards in a 22-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) busted out after three poor games, and it could be a sign that he is back on track after the rough patch.

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 11:18:22 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) practiced Wednesday, Nov. 11, and is probable for Week 10 Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) had 19.8 points on FantasyScore last week and faces a Bills team susceptible to opposing RBs the last five weeks. He's a high-end RB2.

Jets | Several key Jets fully practice

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 14:08:51 -0800

New York Jets WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle, toe), QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets should have the core of their offense for Thursday night's tilt with the Buffalo Bills. Decker ($7,100, 14.2%) and Marshall ($7,600, 15.2%) have the most favorable matchup of the four players as the Bills allow 171.25 receiving yards per game to wide receivers. Ivory ($7,400, 14.8%) may have a harder time than usual finding room to run against a Buffalo rush defense that yields just 81.25 rushing yards per game to running backs.

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 16:53:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) and RB Stevan Ridley (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory should continue to see a majority of the carries for the Jets and should be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners. Ridley should also receive a handful of touches during the game but is not a great option.

Jets | Chris Ivory struggles -- sort of

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 14:11:05 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory rushed 23 times for just 26 yards in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he scored two touchdowns to salvage his fantasy value. Ivory added 22 yards on three receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory has been a pleasant surprising in 2015, but recent injuries and struggles have forced fantasy players to question his role in their lineups. As long as he is touching the ball 20-plus times per game, Ivory is a must-start in all formats.

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 11:53:44 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) and RB Stevan Ridley (knee) practiced Friday, Nov. 6, and are probable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is a low-end RB1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ridley ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't have a large enough role to use on FantasyScore.

Jets | Chris Ivory wants better OL play

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 15:43:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory said he believes the offensive line needs to do a better job blocking after being held to only 58 rushing yards in the last two games. "It starts up front," Ivory said. "We have to do a better job up front and just know our assignments. We prepared well this week. Maybe it will show out on the field." Ivory indicated loaded boxes and running more inside are part of the reason for his poor performances.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) was one of the best running backs in the NFL before the last two games where he averaged last that 2.5 yards per carry. Ivory should be a better option this week since the Jacksonville Jaguars allow the fourth most fantasy points to running backs this season.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) and RB Stevan Ridley (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Nov. 5. RB Bilal Powell (ankle) was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is really the only one to consider starting against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week. He's a low-end RB1 on FantasyScore.

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 14:53:35 -0800

New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory (hamstring) and Stevan Ridley (knee) both were full participants in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is the clear workhorse runner in this backfield, and he faces an excellent matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. Pay up for him on FantasyScore. With many of the Jets offensive players injured this week, expect Ivory to have heavy usage. Ridley ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) can be ignored for now.

Jets | Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley probable

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 15:43:25 -0700

New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory (hamstring) and Stevan Ridley (knee) both practiced in full Friday, Oct. 30, and are probable for Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders continue to be a good matchup for running backs, especially for one like Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) that usually sees heavy workloads. He's a strong play on FantasyScore. It looks like this'll be Ridley's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) first game active this year. While he could become the primary backup to Ivory, he should be avoided as we wait to see what kind of role he'll have in this backfield.

Jets | Another practice for Chris Ivory

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 16:36:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) should be fine for Week 8 against the Raiders, and his hamstring isn't believed to be an issue anymore. The Raiders are giving up 27.0 PPR fantasy points per game to rushers, so Ivory makes for a pretty safe FantasyScore selection.

Jets | No restrictions for Stevan Ridley

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 14:58:00 -0700

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) has no restrictions from the medical staff after being removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list last week. Ridley is a year removed from tearing ligaments in his knee and should be more than a bit player behind RB Chris Ivory when he returns to the field. Ivory's bruising running style makes Ridley's presence that much more important down the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), not Bilal Powell or Zac Stacy, may be the primary handcuff for Chris Ivory owners now in traditional leagues. It's unclear how much time Ridley will see when he returns to action and this situation could be fluid. For now he has no daily value.

Jets | Chris Ivory says he's fine

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 12:31:32 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) said he is feeling fine, and his tight hamstring is apparently a thing of the past.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) will be fine to play against the Oakland Raiders this weekend, and he should be ready for a bounce-back game. The Black and Silver allow 27.0 PPR fantasy points per game to running backs in 2015. Start Ivory with confidence on FantasyScore.

Jets | Chris Ivory practice update

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 14:22:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28. It was previous reported that Ivory did not practice.

Fantasy Tip: There were conflicting reports on Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap), so he'll really need to be monitored as the weekend nears. The Raiders have only allowed three rushing touchdowns to running backs this year, however, so Ivory doesn't have the most favorable matchup anyway.

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 13:18:37 -0700

Jets | Chris Ivory dealing with tightness

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 13:06:53 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) is dealing with tightness in his quadriceps following a Week 7 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory had the worst game of the 2015 season so far yesterday. He did say he had trouble getting loose before the game, and he was dealing with a hamstring issue. He's still a good start against a mediocre Oakland Raiders rush defense next week, as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

Jets | Chris Ivory had trouble getting loose

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 15:56:02 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) said Sunday, Oct. 25, that his hamstring is fine after the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots, but he said he had trouble getting loose during pre-game warmups.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) ran 17 times for 41 yards, and he added two receptions for 12 yards and a score. Not a bad return for FantasyScore players, and he'll be even better as he gets healthier.

Jets | Chris Ivory successful against Patriots

Sat, 24 Oct 2015 19:51:22 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory faces the New England Patriots in Week 7, and he has topped 100 rushing yards in two of his four previous games against the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Although there is a risk that Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) could be limited if the Jets fall too far behind, he should still see plenty of touches against the Patriots' 29th-ranked run defense. Don't write off Ivory at FantasyScore because of the matchup.

Jets | Chris Ivory running wild

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 14:21:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is averaging an NFL-best 115.0 rushing yards per game this year, and the Jets are 4-0 when he's in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) has been one of the most valuable fantasy running backs this year, and he's a safe play most weeks considering he has at least 14 carries in each of his four games in 2015. Temper your expectations a bit in Week 7 against the New England Patriots. The Jets may be forced to go in a different direction if they have to play catchup against the high-flying Pats.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory rushed 20 times for 146 yards in a Week 6 victory over the Washington Redskins Sunday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: In his last two games, Ivory ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has rushed for 312 yards on 49 attempts, averaging 6.4 yards per carry. He will face a more difficult opponent in Week 7, when the Jets take on the New England Patriots.

Jets | Chris Ivory expected to play

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 13:03:34 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is listed as probable for the Week 6 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) should receive most of the carries during the game despite the injuries. He has rushed for at least 91 yards in two of his three games this season and is coming off a 166-yard performance. Ivory will be facing a tough Redskins run defense but should be a starting option for owners.

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 14:14:58 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) and WR Eric Decker (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: After a bye week to heal, both Ivory ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Decker ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should be near full strength. Ivory is a bust candidate on FantasyScore against a Washington Redskins defense that has allowed just two scores on the ground. Decker should be a fine pick against a shaky secondary as one of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite targets.

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 15:27:04 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (knee) and RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) both practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is a bust candidate in daily formats against a stout Washington Redskins run defense that has allowed only two rushing scores all year. Decker ($5,100, 10.2% of cap), on the other hand, is a much safer FantasyScore pick against a suspect secondary.

Jets | Chris Ivory with bruising performance

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 14:37:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory ran like a man possessed in the team's Week 4 win over the Miami Dolphins in London, and he lost yardage on just one of his 29 carries and gained nine or more yards a whopping 10 times. "Sometimes I see bodies out there out of my peripheral (vision)," Ivory said. "If I don't feel like I can get outside, I try to pick a shoulder … and that's usually the guy in front of me."

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is clearly the Jets workhorse back, and the injury to Bilal Powell further cements Ivory's fantasy value with plenty of touches each week. Ivory is a solid RB2 on a weekly basis if he's healthy and has a great chance to return value on FantasyScore if he touches the ball 20-plus times each week, depending on the matchup.

Jets | Chris Ivory runs wild in London

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 18:12:55 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) rushed 29 times for 166 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 win against the Miami Dolphins in London. He did not have any receptions, although he was targeted twice.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Ivory ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) did not show any ill-effects of his quadriceps injury. He has the bye week to rest his injury, and should be a strong FantasyScore option in Week 6 upon return.

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 12:34:20 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) participated in practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Ivory ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be able to suit up this week if he's practicing this early, although, he could see less playing time than if he were fully healthy. He's not the safest option on FantasyScore in Week 4. Better options should be considered.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets won even without Ivory in Week 3. Ivory was active, but he did not play. He will have had plenty of rest leading up to New York's Week 4 contest against the Miami Dolphins. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he'll be worth a start.

Jets | Chris Ivory feeling good

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 20:22:48 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) was active in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he never got into the game. Ivory said Sunday, Sept. 27, that he could have played. "He warmed up and he said he could play," head coach Todd Bowles said. "He missed a lot of practice time during the week. We thought it would be better to go with two other guys to make sure he was full speed next week."

Fantasy Tip: If you started Ivory ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) in FantasyScore, sorry, but that was Bowles' decision and not our fault. Ivory was active and all indications were that he would play. It's further proof that most NFL coaches can care less about fantasy owners.

Jets | Chris Ivory optimistic

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:10:28 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps) is optimistic about his availability for the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He likely will be active if he does not suffer a setback before the game.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Ivory ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be limited if he plays, so owners should see him as a risky option for their starting lineups. Ivory could post solid numbers if he sees a normal workload, so he could still be a solid option despite the injury.

Jets | Three Jets players questionable

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 09:45:00 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (quadriceps), WR Eric Decker (knee) and CB Darrelle Revis (groin) are all questionable for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles and all will be game-time decisions. Revis was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 25, while Ivory and Decker didn't practice.

Fantasy Tip: Both Ivory ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) and Decker ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) are extremely risky on FantasyScore. Decker is expected to play it cautious and sit out. Bilal Powell ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should see considerable work if Ivory is out and is a fine value play on FantasyScore. Quincy Enunwa ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is the sleeper receiver to watch for the Jets if Decker is ruled out.
