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.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is probable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Good news for Ivory's fantasy owners, who will obviously be hoping for a little more than 35 yards on 9 rushes the RB had a week ago against the Ravens.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Ivory was limited for the second straight day, and is coming off a 9-35 rushing performance in Week 12 following back-to-back double-digit fantasy point games.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was seen on the side working with trainers in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: This is an interesting development. The Jets have a pretty good matchup against the Dolphins defense this week, but Ivory hasn't done well with injuries. Keep an eye on his situation this week and be prepared to bench him.

An update on the status of New York Jets RB Chris Ivory will come Wednesday, Nov. 27. Ivory suffered an ankle sprain on his first carry in the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he was still able to rush nine times for 35 yards.
Huddle Up: Ivory's early Week 12 injury was a setback for his fantasy owners as the RB had amassed 237 rushing yards and 2 TDs over his previous 2 games. Monitor his progress this week.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory was leaned upon heavily in the Week 7 overtime victory against the New England Patriots, posting a career-high 34 carries for 104 yards. RB Bilal Powell, who had been the primary ball carrier, managed just three touches. 'Bilal only carried three times but Ivory had the hot hand and we fed him,' head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 20. 'We rode Ivory a little more than normal, but it was a good game.'
Huddle Up: This was an interesting turn of events in New York. Bilal Powell appeared to have the job largely to himself heading into Week 7. It looks like a bit of a nightmare for fantasy owners if Rex Ryan is going to go with the "hot hand" on a weekly basis.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory said he'd like to see the team run the ball more. 'I would like to see us run the ball more,' Ivory said. 'I really feel like when you can run the ball that opens up everything else. It would take a little (pressure) off (QB Geno Smith).'
Huddle Up: The Jets do have the 11th most rushing attempts in the league with 167. Ivory, meanwhile, only has 34 of those rushes for 115 yards -- less than half of starter Bilal Powell's production (87-360)-- but figures to see his usage rise with fellow RB Mike Goodson (knee) getting placed on season-ending IR Tuesday, Oct. 15.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Bilal Powell will see more touches but with Ivory and Mike Goodson back in the picture, the Jets' running back situation is one to avoid for now, and probably the rest of the year.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated in positional drills at practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Ivory, who sat out Week 4 with the injury, has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the season, gaining 72 yards on 26 carries so far. In the meantime, Bilal Powell has taken hold of the team's No. 1 RB job, and Mike Goodson is now back from suspension, meaning Ivory has a lot of work to do just to regain a semblance of fantasy relevance.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: It looks like Bilal Powell will have the backfield to himself this week, making him a good flex option.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Chris Ivory's hamstring injury is to the same hamstring he injured during training camp but at a different spot. The team is expecting Ivory to miss some time because he was slow to recover from his first hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Ivory has had trouble staying healthy, and those issues combined with Bilal Powell's impressive Week 3 showing (a career-high 149 yards on 27 carries) is bad news for Ivory's fantasy value for the foreseeable future.

New York Jets RB Alex Green worked as the No. 2 running back behind RB Bilal Powell in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills when RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) injured his hamstring in the first quarter. Green had 14 yards on five carries.
Huddle Up: Ivory cannot stay healthy. Alex Green doesn't provide much upside. Meanwhile, Bilal Powell is proving to be a big-time fantasy commodity right now.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory left the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Ivory simply can't stay healthy. Meanwhile, Bilal Powell topped 100 yards and looks to be solidifying his hold on the Jets' gig. He may not be as dynamic as Ivory, but he's definitely more durable. So, apparently, is wet toilet tissue.

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory will split carries in Week 1. Powell is listed as the starter, and the team confirmed Ivory would see the short-yardage and goal line work.
Huddle Up: The Jets' running back position only offers fantasy value when one of the backs is getting the bulk of the carries--preferably Ivory, the more talented of the two. With Ivory at least getting goal line work in Week 1 he's the better fantasy play; long-term, he's the significantly better play assuming he takes over the entire workload and stays healthy.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is expected to receive more playing time in the third preseason game based on his practice reps this week. Ivory had only six carries for 13 yards in the team's second preseason game.
Huddle Up: Ivory can solidify his starting case with a strong, injury-free effort this week.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he hopes RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) will be able to play in the team's second preseason game. Ivory fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 12, for the first time since training camp began.
Huddle Up: Hopefully Ivory can shake off the hamstring injuries to make it onto the field soon, lest he lose his job for longer than just the preseason.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory expects to play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Ivory has missed most of training camp with hamstring problems, missing an opportunity to claim the Jets' feature back job as his own. It'll be nice to see him on the field for a change; it'll be even better if he's able to stay there for any length of time.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory has yet to take part in a full practice session, and he said Tuesday, Aug. 6, that he is unlikely to play in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 9. However, he expects to be return to the practice field either 'Monday or Tuesday,' Ivory said. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said the lack of reps for some of the running backs are becoming somewhat of a concern, as is the fact RB Bilal Powell might be touching the ball a bit too much in camp.
Huddle Up: Ivory has thus far been unable to capitalize on the situation and make any sort of a claim on the starting job the Jets hope to give him. With Joe McKnight injured and Mike Goodson AWOL, Powell has become the Jets' default RB1.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is unlikely to play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, thanks to a tweaked hamstring. RBs Mike Goodson and Joe McKnight (head) haven't been available in drills, either, so RB Bilal Powell has received a lot of the repetitions in training camp.
Huddle Up: Jets fans and fantasy owners waiting to see what Ivory brings to the Jets' backfield are going to have to have a little patience as the RB's hammy hasn't cooperated all training camp.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: Chris Ivory's stock continues to deflate this preseason as his hamstrings continue to hamper him. He is at the back of the depth chart—who wouldn't be after being unable to practice—and might stay there for the foreseeable future. Still, it's hard to see the Jets keeping him there once he gets healthy. All this serves to do is decrease his price.
Posted: 8/6/2013 9:27am et
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is listed as the team's starting running back on the first depth chart of the preseason released Monday, Aug. 5, while RB Chris Ivory is second.
Huddle Up: Makes sense; Ivory should have to actually practice as a Jet before Rex Ryan hands him the starting gig. Right now, though, Ivory needs to shake his hamstring issue and get on the field before Powell steals his job for good.
Posted: 8/5/2013 10:17am et
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory has yet to practice during training camp, remaining sidelined for a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 3, and practice Sunday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: With Ivory still out and Joe McKnight sidelined with a concussion, Bilal Powell looks to be the Jets back to have--if you can stomach having a Jet on your fantasy roster at all.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) was wearing pads at the start of practice Friday, Aug. 2, but may have suffered a setback because he worked on a stationary bike and did not participate in position drills.
Huddle Up: Ivory remains the Jets' projected starter, but the once-high fantasy hopes for the ex-Saint grow a tad dimmer with every workout he misses given his unproven track record and history of injuries.
Posted: 8/1/2013 12:27pm et
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is sitting out of team drills again Thursday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: Not a good start for the injury-prone Ivory, who is nursing a hamstring injury. He remains a potential sleeper in the Jets' run-first offense, but Bilal Powell is looking more and more like either a must-handcuff or an even later-round sleeper candidate.
Posted: 7/31/2013 9:27pm et
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) was able to participate in individual drills Wednesday, July 31, but he did not practice with the team.
Huddle Up: Ivory's hamstring flared up when he tried to practice so he didn't want to push it. It's something to watch because Ivory has had injury issues in the past and there are already reports that the Jets want to limit him to around 15 carries a game this season. Ivory has an ADP of Round 6, so his health is a situation to monitor closely throughout training camp.
Posted: 7/31/2013 5:06pm et
The New York Jets could use a running-back-by-committee approach this season with RB Chris Ivory being the lead runner. The team is hoping Ivory will be able to handle 15 carries a game. RB Bilal Powell is expected to be the No. 2 running back and is the leading candidate for the third-down back role.
Huddle Up: This is potentially bad news for anyone looking to snag Ivory as their second or flex starter. This translates to 240 carries for the season if Ivory can stay healthy, 35 fewer than Shonn Greene had a year ago. The good news is Ivory is better than Greene, which means he should still have a nice season. His stock is on the decline this preseason, however.
