Ivory is expected to start Sunday versus the Texans with Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) unlikely to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fournette was unable to practice all week, so the Jaguars are taking a cautious approach with their franchise running back in the stretch run of the season. When Fournette sat out Weeks 7 and 9, Ivory churned out 37 carries for 117 yards and one touchdown and hauled in three of four passes for 34 yards. Nevertheless, T.J. Yeldon had a bigger impact on the box score during that span, turning 20 rushes into 163 yards and one TD while posting four catches for 26 yards. Despite a tough opponent on the other side, both Ivory and Yeldon should get in the act Week 15, with Corey Grant waiting in the wings in the event another injury hits the backfield.

Ivory ran for 48 yards on six carries during Sunday's 30-24 win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory's 48 total yards were his most since Week 9. The uptick might look like progress, but 34 of those yards came in on an early first-quarter run. Overall, the veteran back saw the field for just 12 of 66 offensive snaps, eight more than fellow backup T.J. Yeldon, but a whopping 38 less than starter Leonard Fournette. Ivory hasn't seen double-digit touches since Week 9 and isn't a reliable start.

Ivory ran the ball four times for 12 yards and added a three-yard catch during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

The return of Leonard Fournette has not been kind to Ivory. Ivory averaged 20 touches per game during Fournette's two-game absence in Weeks 7 and 9 and averaged 9.3 touches in the six games prior with Fournette in the lineup. Since Fournette has returned, however, Ivory has just 18 total yards on 14 touches in four games. He inched past fellow backup T.J. Yeldon in offensive snaps Sunday, nine to six, but generally should be discarded from a fantasy perspective at this point.

Ivory lost a fumble on his only carry in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory was held to six carries for six yards the previous week while battling an illness in a 19-7 win over the Browns. With Leonard Fournette is locked in as the lead runner and T.J. Yeldon doing solid work on passing downs, Ivory might find himself on the inactive list for Week 13 against the Colts.

Ivory carried six times for six yards in Sunday's 19-7 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

News came down Sunday morning that Ivory was battling an illness, which is presumably the reason the team handed 28 carries to Leonard Fournette despite a nagging ankle issue of his own. Ivory received just one carry last week despite being healthy, and it's becoming apparent that his days of flirting with double-digit touches each game could be coming to an end. Fournette should continue to carry a heavy load next week against the Cardinals, limiting Ivory's chances of making a significant fantasy impact.

Ivory could see limited snaps Sunday against the Browns, as he's battling an illness, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

On the plus side, fellow RB Leonard Fournette is active for the contest despite dealing with an ankle injury. Ivory is in uniform Sunday, but based on Rapoport's report, he's under the weather and may be limited. Meanwhile, T.J. Yeldon is healthy and on hand to provide support for Fournette.

Ivory carried the ball once for a one-yard gain in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Chargers. He also lost five yards on a lone reception.

EDGE Analysis

The touches were far and a way a season low for Ivory, who was getting starter-level opportunities with Leonard Fournette out of the lineup the past two weeks. He had at least eight touches per game in every other contest this season. Surprisingly, the Jaguars went pass happy against the Chargers and, in the process, Ivory was limited to just eight offensive snaps while T.J. Yeldon -- inactive for stretches earlier in the season -- saw 31 snaps even with Fournette back in the line up. Ivory wasn't a bad play even as a No. 2 back given the Jaguars' run-heavy style. Now, reevaluation is warranted.

Ivory carried the ball 20 times for 69 yards and added 34 yards on three catches in Sunday's 23-7 win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory has now accumulated 80 total yards in two of his last three games and has had at least 17 touches in back to back games. Don't get too excited. Leonard Fournette was out with an ankle injury in the Jags' game before the bye and then was benched for disciplinary reasons on Sunday. Assuming Fournette is back next week, Ivory is likely to return to his backup role. That role, in a run-first offense, is still pretty solid as he averaged over nine touches per game in six outings with Fournette starting, but with just one score in that span, he's probably not worth a start provided Fournette is healthy.

Ivory will start at running back Sunday against the Bengals after Leonard Fournette (coach's decision) was made inactive for the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The surprising decision to hold Fournette out of the contest due to an unspecified violation of team rules should allow Ivory and T.J. Yeldon to lead the Jacksonville backfield for the second straight game after Fournette missed the team's Week 7 win over the Colts with a sprained ankle. During that contest, Ivory nearly doubled Yeldon up in running attempts, 17-9, but managed just 2.8 yards per carry, while Yeldon scampered for 122 yards. Much like Fournette, the Jaguars seem to value the big-bodied Ivory's ability to wear down defenses, but Yeldon's explosiveness in the open field may make the latter a more enticing fantasy option in season-long and DFS contests in Week 9.

Ivory carried 17 times for 47 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-0 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Ivory received the majority of the carries with Leonard Fournette (ankle) sidelined, but he could only manage a disappointing 2.8 yards per tote against a lackluster Colts defense. He managed to salvage his day from a fantasy perspective with a one-yard touchdown plunge on the opening drive, but there was plenty of production left to be had. Fournette could return after the team's bye to face the Bengals in Week 9, which would likely see Ivory's allotment of carries reduced back down to the single digits.
