Ivory carried six times for 25 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory and T.J. Yeldon again shared the workload while the first team offense was on the field, but Yeldon carried only twice, though he did find the end zone on a 14-yard reception. While it's unclear exactly how the carries will be split when the regular season rolls around, the more physical Ivory would appear to have a slight advantage at this point. Through two preseason games, he's racked up 51 yards on 12 carries, while Yeldon has run for 41 yards on six carries.

Ivory had six carries for 26 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

T.J. Yeldon, who got the start, had four carries for 26 yards and one reception for eight yards. As will likely be the case once the regular season begins, Ivory and Yeldon split snaps with the first-team offense, both handling significant roles. It probably isn't all that important which player is technically the starter.

Ivory said recently that the transition from New York to Jacksonville has been a smooth one, the Florida Times-Union reports. "For the most part, it's been pretty smooth," Ivory said last month. "The only thing is trying to adjust to the new terminology. It's the same stuff, but new terminology. I'm just trying to wrap my mind around it and get more comfortable with it so I can just go out and play."

EDGE Analysis

Ivory signed a two-year deal with Jacksonville after spending the previous three seasons in a Jets uniform. The veteran, who rushed for 1,070 yards last season, will split duties with second-year back T.J. Yeldon, and at this point it's unclear exactly how the workload will be shared. The expectation is that Ivory will technically be the No. 1 back, though the Times-Union suggests the number of carries could be close to even. It's also possible that, with two capable backs, the Jags opt to ride the hot hand on a series-to-series basis.

Ivory signed a five-year, $32 million contract with the Jaguars, ESPN's Michael DiRocco reports.

EDGE Analysis

The contract numbers may seem oddly large for an injury-prone running back that will soon turn 28, but only $10 million of the deal is guaranteed and only $5 million comes from the signing bonus. According to NFL.com's Albert Breer, Ivory's deal can really be thought of as a two-year, $12.5 million contract. Of course, that's still more than enough money to ensure that Ivory is ticketed for a starring role, though 2015 second-round selection T.J. Yeldon also figures to be a big part of the offense.

Ivory (knee) had six rushes for 81 yards Sunday against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory just completed the first 1,000-yard season of his career, ending the campaign with 1,070 yards. After starting out this season with four straight excellent performances, he clearly slowed down over the course of the year. He'll go into the off-season as a free agent, as his three-year contract has expired. If he's able to secure a role as a lead runner, he'll continue to be a solid weekly option for fantasy teams.

Ivory (knee) is active Sunday against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory could be in line for an expanded workload Sunday, as backup Bilal Powell, who has been very active in the past few weeks, is out because of an ankle injury. Ivory rushed for 99 yards and picked up an additional 36 receiving yards against the Bills back in Week 10.

Ivory (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Though limited at practice this week, Ivory looks good to go Sunday, which is more than can be said of fellow RB Bilal Powell, who did not practice all week, and is looking very iffy for the Jets' regular season finale. If Powell sits this weekend, Ivory would be a candidate to see added work Sunday, a scenario that would boost his Week 17 fantasy ceiling.

Ivory (knee) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

We'll have to see how the Jets list Ivory for Sunday's regular season finale against the Bills, but we suspect that he'll be out there this weekend, with the team looking to secure a playoff spot with a win in Week 17.

Ivory (knee) did not practice Wednesday, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nor did fellow RB Bilal Powell, though at this stage, of the two, it appears as though Powell's sore ankle may be of more concern to the Jets as Sunday's regular season finale against the Bills approaches.

Ivory rushed 11 times for 38 yards while catching all four of his pass targets for an additional 4 yards Sunday against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Despite leading the Jets in rushing attempts, he was easily the least effective running back on the team in this game. While he struggled, his teammates, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley turned their 14 carries into 92 yards. He now has rushed for 47 or fewer yards in three of his last four games while not finding the end zone during that span.
