Wed, 21 Sep 2016 07:50:00 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: T.J. Yeldon is averaging 2.4 yards per carry and has just 67 rushing yards. Ivory would be a flex option if he's able to make it back this week.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory out for Week 2

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 08:23:36 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) has been ruled out for Week 2 with an undisclosed illness.

Fantasy Tip: T.J. Yeldon has a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers. He rushed 21 times for just 39 yards and a score against the Green Bay Packers last week. He's a decent RB2 in fantasy this week.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory says he's 'ready to go'

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 15:26:06 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) said he's "ready to go" and there are "no more issues." He didn't want to go into details about what caused him so much pain that he needed to be taken to the hospital the morning of Sunday, September 11, but he was excited to be back and "just ready to get back going."

Fantasy Tip: Tip: Details are still vague about why Ivory even went to the hospital in the first place, but based on how he's feeling at the moment, it looks like he's ready to put all of this in the rearview mirror. Ivory probably won't play this week, but certainly has the potential to be a serviceable flex option again in the near future. In the meantime, T.J. Yeldon looks like a solid RB2.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory not ruled out yet

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 11:22:15 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) has not been ruled out for Week 2 at this point, but head coach Gus Bradley said it would be challenging for Ivory to play in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory likely will sit out next week and try to play in Week 3 or Week 4. T.J. Yeldon will be the starting running back for the Jaguars and should be a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory sitting out

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 09:10:44 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Ivory will miss at least one more week, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. T.J. Yeldon should see most of the playing time at running back again in Week 2 and should be considered a fine No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory absent from practice

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 11:00:56 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory was just released from the hospital Tuesday, Sept. 13, so it isn't surprising he was absent from practice Wednesday. There is currently no timeline for his return, so continue to view T.J. Yeldon with elevated fantasy value heading into the Week 2 matchup against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Sept. 18. Yeldon is in RB2 consideration after the Chargers allowed 33 points and 413 yards in Week 1.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory out of hospital

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 13:00:10 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) was released from the hospital Tuesday, Sept. 13, and is doing well. There is no timetable for his return yet.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely at this point that Ivory would jump right back into a major role in Jacksonville's backfield. T.J. Yeldon is still the better play. He's a decent RB2 option if Ivory is out or limited after the San Diego Chargers surrendered 200 total yards and a touchdown to Spencer Ware last week.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory still undergoing tests

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 10:58:21 -0700

Updating a previous story, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) is still undergoing tests but is hopeful of being discharged from the hospital in the day or two, according to USA Today's Tom Pelissero.

Fantasy Tip: The fact Ivory is hopeful of being discharged in the next day or two is a good sign, but no one can really be for sure until an official diagnosis has been made. Pelissero called Ivory's Week 2 status for the Jaguars' game versus the San Diego Chargers "up in the air", but owners shouldn't expect him to play. Even if he does somehow suit up, he'd be looking a slight cameo at most, while T.J. Yeldon carries most of the load in a plus-matchup.

Jaguars | No change in Chris Ivory's status

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 10:03:13 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) remains hospitalized with a "general medical issue", according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: His status remains unchanged from Monday's update. As one might expect with a diagnosis yet to be made, his Week 2 availability against the San Diego Chargers is in serious doubt. Schefter also mentioned the Jaguars hope to know more within the next 48 hours, so perhaps this story is close to reaching a resolution.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory remains hospitalized

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 10:30:43 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (calf, illness) remains in the hospital and is undergoing tests to discover the source of the pain that led to his admission Saturday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, fans and owners should care less about availability against the San Diego Chargers next week and can only hope this isn't a more serious issue that threatens his overall well-being. As far as the Jaguars are concerned, they should anticipate another committee backfield attack of T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson in the very likely event Ivory is forced to sit out Week 2.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory sent to hospital

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 09:50:16 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (calf, undisclosed) was admitted to the hospital Saturday, Sept. 10, because of an issue unrelated to his calf, according to a source. He will be evaluated later this week, which will determine whether he will be able to play in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next week to see if Ivory will miss more time because of his undisclosed injury. T.J. Yeldon will receive most of the work while Ivory is sidelined and will be a decent starting option in fantasy leagues.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory out Sunday

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 08:26:41 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (ankle) has been declared inactive for Week 1's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Ivory from all fantasy lineups immediately. RB T.J. Yeldon will receive the starting nod against Green Bay and makes a viable flex option in all formats. RB Denard Robinson could also see a few carries but should not be viewed as a great fantasy option.

Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon could start Sunday

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 07:30:47 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon could start Week 1's game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Sept. 11. RB Chris Ivory (ankle) is expected to play but is likely to receive fewer snaps than normal, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are worthy of consideration as flex options in all fantasy formats this week, although Yeldon appears to be the safer choice since it is unknown how many snaps Ivory will play.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory questionable

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 08:46:52 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 1, but he's expected to play in Week 1. He participated in the walkthrough Friday, Sept. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory looks to be on the plus side of questionable, and the matchup is solid against the Green Bay Packers. He'll likely share the load with T.J. Yeldon, and both are flex options in fantasy.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory limited again

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 13:54:57 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (calf) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory's status will need to be monitored heading into Sunday's slate of games. Even if he's healthy and plays he'll split playing time with T.J. Yeldon. Don't view Ivory as more than a flex start this week.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory limited Wednesday

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 13:49:01 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Ivory is in danger of missing Week 1. He is expected to receive most of the carries in the running game this season and will be a fine No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues if he is active.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon are co-starters

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 14:06:38 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon are listed as co-starters on the Jaguars' first depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: The acquisition of Ivory really crowded the Jacksonville backfield this offseason. Ivory has the experience, but Yeldon is no pushover and is coming off a decent rookie campaign. For now, they're both in RB3 territory, but if push comes to shove then Ivory is a slightly better option.

Jaguars | A timeshare in the Jacksonville backfield?

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 05:35:22 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon could have close to an even split of playing time, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.

Fantasy Tip: What's most important is where and when the playing time come, and Ivory is likely to see more work close to the goal line, whereas Yeldon could be utilized more in passing situations. Depending on your fantasy format, their respected values alter slightly. View both as viable No. 3 backs for your virtual squad. In the event of an injury to either, the other's stock would skyrocket, though, so don't shy away in the middle rounds of drafts.

Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon the third-down back?

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 18:33:31 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon's improvement in pass protection was praised by offensive coordinator Greg Olson, and beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Yeldon is being slotted for the third-down back role while RB Chris Ivory will handle more of the carries on early downs.

Fantasy Tip: Yeldon is younger and has more upside, especially in PPR formats, but both he and Ivory are in RB3 range heading into 2016.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory back at practice

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:09:50 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (undisclosed) participated in practice Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory appears to be fine and should share work with T.J. Yeldon at running back in 2016. He likely will receive more carries as part of the committee and is coming off a solid 2015 season. Ivory should be a fine No. 2 or No. 3 running back for fantasy owners.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory not at workout

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 11:10:06 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (undisclosed) was not present for organized team activities Monday, June 6.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory should be on the field for the mandatory minicamp and is expected to share work with T.J. Yeldon in 2016. The team is expected to have a better offense this season, which will help his fantasy value. Owners in most leagues should consider Ivory as a No. 2 or No. 3 running back.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory back at practice

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:30:45 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (personal) participated in organized team activities Thursday, June 2, after he missed workouts Tuesday, May 31, because of a personal issue.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory probably will share work with T.J. Yeldon in 2016 but may receive a majority of the carries. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues and should be a starting option most weeks. The Jaguars are expected to have an improved offense this upcoming season, which will help Ivory's fantasy value.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory successful on first down

Sun, 22 May 2016 21:01:34 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory's 736 yards gained on first-down carries last year were the third most in the NFL, and beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Ivory will handle more carries on first and second down than RB T.J. Yeldon, and Yeldon will serve as the primary third-down back.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how the carries will be distributed, but Ivory and Yeldon are going to curb the fantasy upside of each other. Yeldon has more upside, especially in PPR formats, but Ivory should still be a potential RB3.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory could start

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 20:05:14 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory and RB T.J. Yeldon will be in a competition to see who opens the 2016 season as the starter, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of who is officially listed as the starter, both backs should see their share of touches. Yeldon has more upside and could sneak into RB2 territory, and Ivory should make a serviceable RB3.

Jaguars | Lighter load could help T.J. Yeldon

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 20:03:35 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon led all running backs with 49.3 snaps per game in 2015, and head coach Gus Braldey said RB Chris Ivory was signed in part to help keep Yeldon healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory will cut into Yeldon's workload, but a fresher Yeldon could easily be more productive overall if he is able to play all 16 games. Consider Yeldon a strong RB3 heading into 2016.

Jaguars | Yeldon, Ivory to split carries

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 10:30:28 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory will likely split carries in 2016, according to general manager David Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: That was fairly obvious, but Yeldon holds the upside over Ivory. Ivory seemingly has nagging injuries every year, and Yeldon has the home-run potential. Both will be worth consideration as a low-end RB2, but your RBs are looking good with either of them as an RB3.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory financials

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 16:55:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory's new contract is a five-year deal worth $32 million, including $10 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Tip: While Ivory's addition solidifies the Jaguars' backfield, it seriously hurts his immediate fantasy prospects as well as T.J. Yeldon's. Both backs should be considered nothing more than flex options for now.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory contract note

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 05:23:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Chris Ivory (Jets) agreed to a five-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars that will be worth more than $6 million per season.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will form a committee, which will render both to RB3 status.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory expected to join Jacksonville

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 19:13:30 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is expected to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars when free agency begins on Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: A curious move to say the least for the Jaguars, who repeatedly expressed their satisfaction with T.J. Yeldon's ability to handle a full workload. Ivory will almost certainly form a committee with Yeldon and assume goal-line and short-yardage duties, robbing the rookie of much of the fantasy value he figured to have in an improving offense in 2016. Both backs figure to be flex options at best if Ivory ends up in Jacksonville.

Jets | Chris Ivory wants certain deal

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 15:39:52 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is looking for a deal around $6.5 million per year and at minimum three years in length.

Fantasy Tip: There are plenty of teams wanting to sign Ivory, as he is one of the hottest commodities among free-agent running backs this year. There's probably at least one team willing to pay up for Ivory, who, for now, should be regarded as a RB2 for next season.

Jaguars | Jacksonville looking for running back

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 12:10:41 -0800

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be a wild card in free agency when going after running backs, and they've been linked to Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller, New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Doug Martin. The Jaguars have a ton of money available this year.

Fantasy Tip: The Jags have confidence in second-year player T.J. Yeldon as a three-down back, but they wouldn't mind pairing another runner with him in the backfield. If Jacksonville brings someone else in, that'll obviously hurt Yeldon's fantasy value and make him more of an RB3 or 4.

NFL | Chris Ivory has plenty of suitors

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 12:04:48 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory has interest from the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders, and the Miami Dolphins could also enter the mix.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory can be effective in between the tackles as a downhill runner when healthy, as he showed with the Jets, but his age and injury history should be concerning to fantasy owners. Wherever he lands next he'll likely split backfield duties, but Ivory can still have value as an RB3 in the right situation.

Jets | Chris Ivory likely to move on

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 07:31:37 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is unlikely to re-sign with the Jets, according to a source. The Jets don't believe they can keep him and are prepared to move on.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory has improved each of the last three seasons, but it seems like he has constant health issues. Ivory could be an RB2 consideration in the right spot, and he shouldn't be viewed worse than a high-end RB3.

Raiders | Oakland interested in Chris Ivory

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 16:34:15 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is receiving interest from the Oakland Raiders. The team is looking for a power back to pair with RB Latavius Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory should receive interest from several teams and may not want to share carries next season, so owners should monitor the situation. Ivory's fantasy value probably would drop if he signed with the Raiders but would still be a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues.

Buccaneers | Chris Ivory of interest to Bucs

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 15:54:41 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is of interest to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Doug Martin does not re-sign.

Fantasy Tip: Both teams will be in dire need of a running back if Ivory and Martin leave their respective squads. Martin and Ivory are considered the two top free-agent running backs this year. Both will be fringe RB1s depending on who they play for next.

Jets | New York could target Alfred Morris

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 15:20:15 -0800

Impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris (Redskins) could be an option for the New York Jets if RB Chris Ivory departs in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets should have no shortage of options in a loaded free-agent class for running backs. Morris profiles similar to Ivory in the sense that he is a more-than-capable early-down back that generally comes off the field on passing downs. In what figures to be an above-average New York offense again this year, Morris could return the same kind of RB2 value Ivory did last season.

Patriots | New England fixed on upgrading backfield

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:21:31 -0800

Impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory (Jets), Matt Forte (Bears), Alfred Morris (Redskins) and Joique Bell (Lions) are among the veterans on the radar of the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots would do well to upgrade from LeGarrette Blount and each of the aforementioned names - outside of Bell - would provide that. Ivory is perhaps the most intriguing option in that he is an early-down thumper that would be a great complement to dynamic passing-down back Dion Lewis. If Ivory joins New England, he could be a solid RB2 option in most leagues.

Jets | New York has talked with Chris Ivory

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 11:42:10 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory and his representatives have spoken with the Jets this offseason, but Ivory is still expected to test the free-agent market. The Jets do want Ivory to return, but they probably won't be able to pay him as much as other prospective teams. Furthermore, the Jets are expected to draft a running back since three of their unrestricted free agents this year are Ivory and RBs Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is one of the biggest names on the free-agent market this year, and probably a top-three free-agent running back along with Lamar Miller and Doug Martin. There are always interested suitors for top free-agent ball-carriers, and Ivory's fantasy value will depend on where he lands in free agency.

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 | 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.

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.
