Chris Ivory RB NYJ 5 Days
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.

Ivory rushed 14 times for 51 yards in Sunday's victory over Pittsburgh. He was not targeted in the passing game.
A modest showing from Ivory, though at least he saw more work than Chris Johnson (7-23 rushing, 1-12 receiving). The staunch Buffalo defense is next up on the schedule.

Ivory was held to 22 yards on eight carries in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.
The game situation basically eliminated Ivory from the game plan, to the benefit of Chris Johnson (101 total yards on 13 touches). Oddly, Ivory still kept the majority of touches in Week 8, when the Jets were blown out against Buffalo. Good luck mining this backfield for value next week, when New York plays Pittsburgh.

Ivory had 13 carries for 43 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Buffalo. He did not catch a pass (two targets).
Ivory had a passable fantasy game when you consider that Buffalo blew out New York. Also keep in mind the Bills hadn't allowed a rushing touchdown before this week. The Jets play Kansas City in Week 9.
