Jets | Could use RB by committee
Wed, 31 Jul 2013 13:27:52 -0700
The New York Jets could use a running-back-by-committee approach this season with RB Chris Ivory being the lead runner. The team is hoping Ivory will be able to handle 15 carries a game. RB Bilal Powell is expected to be the No. 2 running back and is the leading candidate for the third-down back role.
The Jets do not appear have a true No. 1 running back, but Ivory likely will receive a majority of the carries if healthy this season. He should be considered a low-end No. 3 fantasy running back. Powell could be a No. 4 or No. 5 running back in point-per-reception leagues.
