New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 21 carries for a season-high 107 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 16. He also added four catches for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Ivory rebounded quite nicely from his 8-carry, 7-yard game in Week 6 -- at least for those fantasy owners who hadn't lost faith. Chris Johnson also had a decent game with 80 total yards on 15 touches Thursday night, but Ivory had 10 more touches and retains his strong grip on the Jets' starting job.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory may get more playing time, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ivory and Chris Johnson both had 10 carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 3, but Ivory saw more action in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Ivory has most definitely been the more productive back, rushing for 66 more yards (189-123) and 2 more TDs (2-0) than Johnson on 2 fewer carries and posting 32 more reception yards (55-23) despite one fewer catch. The concern, though -- especially with an increased workload -- is Ivory's health as he's played in only 42 out of a possible 67 games in his four-plus-year pro career.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 10 rushes for 102 yards and a touchdown in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The bulk of Ivory's stats came via a 71-yard touchdown run in which he was virtually untouched--though almost caught from behind. Not every defense will present the opportunities that Oakland's did, but Ivory looks to be an equal partner with Chris Johnson in the Jets backfield and with that comes some degree of fantasy value.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 11. He has missed the last three practices because of the injury.
Huddle Up: Initial reports indicated Ivory returned to practice over the weekend, but we should've known better with a RB who has yet to play a full season in 4 years in the league.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) left the team's preseason game with a rib injury Thursday, Aug. 7, and did not return.
Huddle Up: In what is quite possibly the least surprising development from the first night of preseason games, the oft-injured Ivory got hurt. Sounds like he'll be fine, and in what is expected to be a reduced role as the Jets' goal line guy he shouldn't be overly taxed with regards to playing time. But it serves as a reminder that Ivory isn't exactly the most durable back on the planet.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory lined up with the starters in the team's first preseason series, but later the left the game with a rib injury.
Huddle Up: Bilal Powell (hammy) was out and veteran free-agent acquisition Chris Johnson was expected to be limited, so don't read a whole lot into Ivory's start. He finished with only 17 yards on 7 carries before departing with the rib issue. Further details were sketchy, so monitor the situation.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is likely to be the team's goal line back, according to running backs coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Before you hit the panic button on Chris Johnson's fantasy value, keep in mind that CJ?K tends to score more touchdowns from 50 yards and out than he does from five yards and in so this shouldn't ding his stats significantly. It does, however, give Ivory some value in TD-heavy scoring systems.
