Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Chris Ivory is the favorite to be the Jets' goal-line back this season.

"If we were playing tomorrow, Chris Ivory would be on the goal line, obviously," Lynn said. "Sometimes in those situations you have an extra defender that you can't block, and you need a back that can take him on." Ivory weighs over 220 pounds and will serve as the short-yardage vulture while Chris Johnson operates as the Jets' lead back between the twenties. Ivory may still struggle for weekly start-ability in fantasy leagues barring a CJ?K injury.
