Chris Ivory RB NYJ 3 weeks ago2 Comments

Ivory currently sits atop the Jets' running back depth chart, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

It's unclear at this point how the workload will be split this season, but Ivory appears to be the early favorite to serve as the No. 1 back. He'll face competition from Bilal Powell, Daryl Richardson, Zac Stacy and Stevan Ridley.

Ivory (hamstring) had 13 carries for 29 rushing yards and one catch on one target for eight receiving yards during Sunday's 37-24 win over the Dolphins.

Like most games this season, Ivory split the backfield touches with Chris Johnson, who finished with just 20 yards on 10 carries. Ivory has one more season left on the three-year, $6 million contract he signed in April 2013, while Johnson also has one year left on his deal. It's unclear if they'll keep both backs, though both of their fantasy upsides could be limited next season if they have to split carries again.

Ivory (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Ivory will once again split carries with Chris Johnson, though the two could be heavily involved in the Jets' offense against a Dolphins defense far better against the pass than the run this season.

Ivory (hamstring) practiced fully Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins , the Jets' official site reports.

The hamstring issue that resulted in Ivory popping up on Thursday's injury report was evidently a minor one, and he's in line to close out the season sharing the Jets' backfield with Chris Johnson.

Ivory was added to the Jets' Week 17 injury report, after being deemed a limited practice participant Thursday with a hamstring issue, the team's official site reports.

We'll revisit Ivory's status Friday, but if he is out or limited at all Sunday against the Dolphins, Chris Johnson's Week 17 fantasy prospcts would see a bump.

Ivory had 11 carries for 53 yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Ivory finished with one more carry than Chris Johnson, though the latter only sputtered out 30 yards. That's now eight games in a row for Ivory with fewer than 75 rushing yards, and he has only one touchdown since Week 8. He'll continue to split carries with Johnson, though the two could be heavily used in Week 17 against the Dolphins, who are allowing the third-fewest passing yards per game this season, but allow the 11th-most rushing yards per contest.

Ivory had 12 carries for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win at Tennessee. He caught his lone target for one yard.

Ivory didn't do much against a soft Titans' rush defense, but his short touchdown run late in the fourth quarter helped to salvage his fantasy game. Meanwhile, Chris Johnson was more effective, gaining 55 yards on 10 carries, although most of that damage came on a 37-yard scamper. In Week 16, Ivory will face a Patriots' defense that he shredded for 107 yards and a touchdown on Oct. 16.

Ivory had 16 carries for 73 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for four receiving yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Vikings.

Chris Johnson matched Ivory's 16 carries, though he finished with only 53 rushing yards. The 73 yards for Ivory were the most he's had since Week 7, and he's now gone five straight games without a touchdown. The good news is that the Jets will face off against the Titans in Week 15, who are allowing the most rushing yards per game in the NFL this season, though Ivory's upside will continue to be limited by Johnson, who spent the first six years of his career with the Titans.

Ivory had 16 carries for 62 yards in Monday's 16-13 loss to the Dolphins.

The Jets piled up 277 yards on 49 carries, with Chris Johnson's 17 totes for 105 yards leading the way. Most of the damage was done early in the game, as the Miami front seven clamped down after halftime. While the gameplan allowed both Johnson and Ivory to get plenty of carries, there's no guarantee the Jets will go with a similar approach in Week 14 against the Vikings.

Ivory (shoulder) had seven carries for 31 yards and three receptions for seven yards in Monday's 38-3 loss to the Bills.

Chris Johnson recorded seven carries for 40 yards and three receptions for 22 yards. The Jets had a few nice gains on the ground against a stout defense, but their passing game was entirely dysfunctional. The team thus spent nearly the entire contest trailing, which limited Ivory's ability to make an impact. While still a talented runner, Ivory has just 147 rushing yards over his last four games, heading into a difficult Week 13 matchup with the Dolphins.
