Ivory had 21 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown, adding four receptions for 18 yards on four targets, in Thursday's 27-25 loss to the Patriots.
Chris Johnson had 13 carries for 61 yards, with two receptions for 19 yards on three targets. Ivory is getting most of the carries, but Johnson and Bilal Powell are still handling most of the work on passing downs. Though you could certainly make the case that some of Johnson's carries should go to Ivory, the Jets seem to have settled into a split they are comfortable with. As good as he's looked with the ball in his hands this season, Ivory may struggle to pick up yardage in next week's road matchup against the Buffalo Bills' league-leading run defense.

Ivory managed just seven yards on eight carries in Sunday's loss to Denver. He also had one catch for 14 yards.
Ivory was a no-show on this week, but he's still a potential flex consideration for the Thursday night matchup in New England.

Ivory had nine carries for 44 yards in Sunday's loss at San Diego.
While Ivory didn't go off, or collect any receptions, at least he outplayed Chris Johnson (26 total yards) once again. If you're going to have a Jets back, Ivory is the guy you went. The Broncos are up next.

Ivory was New York's featured runner in Sunday's loss to Detroit, carrying 17 times for 84 yards. He also caught two passes for 16 yards.
A handy showing from Ivory, especially when you consider how good Detroit's rushing defense has been this year. Chris Johnson, meanwhile, was limited to eight touches (though one went for a 35-yard touchdown). If you have just one running back card to play in this backfield, we suggest you spend it on Ivory.

Ivory had 10 carries for 44 yards and four receptions for 52 yards on four targets in Monday's 27-19 loss to the Bears.
Chris Johnson had 10 carries for 34 yards, and did not catch a pass on two targets. The two once again split the workload evenly, with Bilal Powell handling some of the snaps in obvious passing situations. Ivory has consistently looked better than Johnson this season, but there's no guarantee that will lead to a larger share of the workload. Johnson hasn't made any egregious mistakes, and the Jets seem fairly committed to their multi-back approach.

Ivory was the top Jets rusher in Sunday's loss at Green Bay, finishing with 13 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown. He also had a three-yard reception.
Ivory and Chris Johnson were used about the same amount; Johnson finished 12-21 rushing and had one catch for no gain. The timeshare probably isn't going away in New York, no matter the opponent or game situation. Someone should be able to find running room in Week 3's matchup at Chicago, but good luck figuring who it will be.

Ivory had 10 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Raiders.
Chris Johnson started the game and led the Jets with 13 carries, but it was Ivory's 71-yard touchdown that did the most fantasy damage. Johnson did score a touchdown on a short shovel-pass, but with both backs playing well, it wouldn't be surprising to see them split carries again in Week 2 against the Packers.

The Jets continue to list three running backs (Ivory, Chris Johnson, Bilal Powell) atop their depth chart, ESPN New York reports.
Ah, those sneaky Jets - anything for a competitive advantage, real or imagined. Ivory looks like the team's No. 2 back on paper, but it's not like Johnson arrived in town without baggage.

Ivory (ribs) gained 50 yards on six carries in Friday's preseason game against the Giants.
Ivory and Chris Johnson both found success, as did Geno Smith through the air. Johnson started and got the first handful of touches, but Ivory was also quite active with the first-team offense. Ivory should get most of the goal-line carries, while Johnson figures to handle most of the passing-down snaps. Johnson is the best bet to lead the team in Week 1 touches, but the workload division is still worth keeping a close eye on. Ivory seems to have recovered nicely from the rib injury that kept him out of last week's preseason game.

Ivory (ribs) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Giants, the New York Daily News reports.
Ivory hurt his ribs during the Jets' preseason opener and was held out of the team's second exhibition outing last weekend as a precaution. He'll return this Saturday for the Jets' dress rehearsal, when the team's starters are slated to play the entire first half, as well as the first series of the second half. With that in mind, it will be worthwhile to monitor how Ivory, Chris Johnson, and possibly Bilal Powell split snaps with New York's first-team offense.
