2014 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Chris Ivory has always put up solid numbers, but has had a hard time staying on the field. Ivory was relatively healthy in 2013, though. Ivory's touches will be limited thanks to the arrival of Chris Johnson. While Ivory averages almost five yards a carry for his career, he has never carried the ball more than 182 times in a season. Ivory is a non-factor in the passing game, which really hurts his PPR value. How the Jets divide up carries is yet to be seen, but expect Johnson to be the top guy in New York. Ivory will also have to contend with Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson. Ivory will likely lead the Jets in yards per carry; however, Johnson will lead this backfield in fantasy points. Ivory should be drafted as a bench player and maybe even left on the waiver wire in PPR.

Latest Update

Jul-29-14 Jets RB Chris Ivory favorite for goal-line back

The running back coach for the New York Jets organization, Anthony Lynn, has said, "If we were playing tomorrow, Chris Ivory would be on the goal line." The Jets have one of the most crowded backfields in the NFL with the likes of Chris Johnson, Bilal Powell, Chris Ivory, Alex Green and Daryl Richardson. Ivory is one of the largest backs on the depth chart weighing in at 222 pounds and six feet tall. During his first year stint with the Jets in 2013 the back garnered 833 yards and only three touchdowns, but this year may be different.

Fantasy Analysis:

If you're looking for a cheap running back who will consistently get the ball, Ivory is your man. In the latter portion of 2013 Ivory turned on the Jets and became the teams' best fantasy producer in terms of yardage. In second-half of the season, Ivory touched the ball at least ten times in six games. I would draft Ivory as a matchup-based back who will get you at least 50 yards and possibly a touchdown every other game.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
6.02 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - Injury concerns are a major red flag (played in just 24 games over first 3 seasons) but the Jets boast a solid O-line and will be one of the more run focused offenses whether they have Sanchize or rookie Geno Smith under center. The 25 year old has been mired in a crowded Saints backfield but posted an impressive 5.1 YPC (256 carries for 1,307 yards and eight touchdowns). Ivory is a solid RB2 with RB1 upside if he's able to stay healthy.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
6.05 Draft TV - Chris Ivory is my ideal RB3. Instant starter, big time upside, and in line for a lot of carries. I will protect him in case of injury, but what other 6th round RB could get 275+ carries?
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
5.10 ESPN1090 
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
5.08 DraftSharks - This one felt like a reach, but Ivory could definitely provide this type of value if he stays healthy. The Jets' line remains good, and the team should showcase that again after getting rid of the plodding Shonn Greene. Ivory is the "runs angry" type.
