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."
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.
