Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed fora team-high 51 yards Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: He did so on 14 carries, and is clearly the lead back in the Jets' backfield. Chris Johnson had seven carries for 23 yards.
 
10/26/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory was unable to buildoff his impressive Week 7 performance.
Insight: After 107 yards and a touchdown last week, Ivory rushed for only 43 yards on Sunday. Chris Johnson was not any better, totaling only three carries for seven yards. Ivory is clearly the lead dog in New York.
 
10/17/2014 9:24:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory reappeared after being two ugly games to post 107 yards and a score on 21 carries and catch four balls for 18 yards.
Insight: Ivory was "the guy" with Chris Johnson as an afterthought and we liked what we saw.
 
Cold10/15/2014 8:18:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory has disappeared over the last two games.
Insight: The promise of two double-digit fantasy point days to start the season has faded and Ivory can't be started at this point in time.
 
10/6/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed a team-high nine times for just 44 yards.
Insight: It was better production than fellow running back Chris Johnson, but neither posted fantasy-worthy numbers in a 31-0 blowout.
 
9/28/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 84 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards in Week 4 against Detroit.
Insight: He touched the ball 11 times more than Chris Johnson, but unfortunately Johnson stole the touchdown. It remains a pretty evenly distributed backfield, at least, fantasy wise.
 
9/16/2014 1:11:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory got the better of Chris Johnson in Week 2, rushing for 43 yards and a score on 13 carries.
Insight: Johnson saw 12 rushed for 21 yards. This is very close to a 50-50 situation and until one of the guys takes control, it will be difficult to start either back in fantasy lineups.
 
9/8/2014 12:53:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory played 30-of-70 offensive snaps in the Jets' Week 1 victory over the Raiders. Chris Johnson barely had more playing time with 33 offensive snaps.
Insight: Even though Johnson out-touched Ivory 18 to 10, it is really looking like the workload is going to be split right down the middle. The duo, along with Bilal Powell, averaged 7.4 yards per carry. As much as the Jets would like to give quarterback Geno Smith more responsibilities, this team is going to be a run-first offense. Both Johnson and Ivory are worth stashing away on the bench.

Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory has a rib cartilage injury and is uncertain to play in the second preseason game. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: Ivory, who has always been injury-prone, left the preseason opener with the rib injury. Chris Johnson's best chance to return RB2 numbers is Ivory going down. Johnson scored a one-yard touchdown after Ivory left in the first preseason game.
 
8/8/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory injured a rib in Thursday's preseason opener.
Insight: Chris Johnson ended up scoring from a yard out which would normally be Ivory time. It's early, but Ivory's history of injuries makes this a concern. Update: X-rays were taken and coach Rex Ryan said he "would be fine."

Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory injured a rib in Thursday's preseaosn opener.
Insight: Chris Johnson ended up scoring from a yard out which would normally be Ivory time. It's early, but Ivory's history of injuries makes this concerning.
 
7/29/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory was confirmed as the team's goal line back, according to RBs coach Anthony Lynn.
Insight: Chris Johnson is the No. 1, but this will hurt his fantasy value. Ivory is a clear No. 2 and goal line back ... when healthy. The Jets also have Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson in the backfield, but they don't figure to see much time, barring injury.
 
7/24/2014 1:45:00 PM
Description: Injury-prone Jets running back Chris Ivory is already sitting out drills with a hamstring problem.
Insight: Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury last season and despite his talent we want no part of him this season. Chris Johnson is the No. 1 and Ivory a clear No. 2, when healthy. The Jets also have Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson in the backfield.
 
12/22/2013 5:41:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his third 100-yard game of the season Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury early in the season and didn't take the reigns of the team's backfield until Week 6, but he's been a solid flex option since then with 699 rushing yards and three touchdowns over his last nine games.
 
11/29/2013 4:21:00 PM
Description: New York halfback Chris Ivory is listed as probable on the team's Week 13 injury report.
Insight: Ivory suffered a sprained ankle Sunday against Baltimore but has been able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. He'll split carries with Bilal Powell this week against the Dolphins.
 
11/25/2013 9:25:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory suffered an ankle sprain in the first quarter.
Insight: Ivory had been hot with 237 yards and two touchdowns over the previous two weeks, but finished with nine carries for 35 yards to the disappointment of fantasy owners everywhere. We await word of the severity.
 
11/17/2013 5:42:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory came within two yards of the 100-yard bonus in Week 11 at Buffalo.
Insight: Ivory left no doubt about who New York's lead RB is. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, while Bilal Powell had 27 yards on five rushes. Ivory has had 98 or more yards in three of the last four games and a touchdown in two straight.
 
11/3/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his second 100-yard game in three weeks Sunday against the Saints, his former team.
Insight: Ivory ran with a purpose against the team that traded him this past offseason, gaining 139 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries after seeing just six carries in Week 8 at Cincinnati. Bilal Powell finished with 29 yards on nine carries. The split will limit Ivory's fantasy value, but he should be the lead ballcarrier after New York's Week 10 bye.
 
10/20/2013 5:51:00 PM
Description: The Jets gave Chris Ivory 34 carries Sunday against the Patriots and the running back came away with 104 rushing yards.
Insight: According to Kimberly A. Martin of Newsday, coach Rex Ryan said Ivory had the "hot hand" so they stuck with him over Bilal Powell. If 3.1 ypc is considered hot, we don't want to know what cold is. Bilal Powell saw just three carries in the game. Neither player can be trusted in fantasy leagues.
 
9/29/2013 3:04:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) will miss Sunday's game with Tennessee.
Insight: Ivory pulled his hamstring in the win over Buffalo. Bilal Powell broke out with 149 yards on 27 carries against the Bills and will be the workhorse back in Week 4.
