Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 16 vs TEN (14 / 45 / 1 rush, 6 / 4 / 69 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory was tremendous as a runner and pass catcher, doing a great job of making explosive plays and gaining extra yards. He scored one touchdown from the goal line and the team made a point of featuring him there. The only downside to his performance was that he could not stop fumbling. He fumbled twice, though one was ruled down, and lost one of them. His ball security was awful all season.
2016 Week 15 vs HOU (10 / 44 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Ivory played his first game for a few weeks but didn't really do much to make his presence known. He looked impressive on several carries and has proven he can break off big runs even behind the Jaguars line, but for some reason, the Jaguars terribly inept Offensive Coordinator Nate Hackett only gave him 10 carries on the day.
2016 Week 12 vs BUF (9 / 44 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Ivory did not play much due to a hamstring injury, but it was clear that the Jaguars offensive potential rides and dies with Ivory's play. When he was in the game, the Jaguars' offense was able to drive down the field and consistently pick up first downs. Ivory has displayed great burst and tackle breaking ability and the team trusts him in goal-line situations.
2016 Week 11 vs DET (17 / 39 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 75 / 0 rec)
Ivory is lucky Yeldon got hurt, because he would have surely been benched after fumbling. His fumble was his 4th as a Jaguar, which leads the NFL. Luckily he bounced back and played very well, racking up a ton of yards as a pass catcher. The real question is how much the Jaguars staff will continue to trust him with his ball security issues, but he is still clearly the Jaguars most talented back.
2016 Week 10 vs HOU (9 / 31 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Strangely, the Jaguars refused to let Ivory carry the offense the way he did the week before. He looked good in limited reps but the team only gave him 9 carries and rotated him and Yeldon sporadically. He never had a chance to get into a rhythm.
2016 Week 9 vs KC (18 / 107 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Ivory looked terrific. He had a burst that has not been there all season and it seemed like he broke a tackle every time he had the ball. His 4o+ yard run was a thing of beauty, showing his balance and power. The lone bad play he had doomed the team, though. It is a debate as to whether or not he truly fumbled in the endzone, but hold onto the ball and the call never has to be made. Either way, expect the team to continue to ride Ivory.
2016 Week 8 vs TEN (4 / 6 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
The Jaguars have one of the most feeble running games in team history. Ivory does not look 100% from his early season injury, there is no blocking to speak of, and by the time that the game is a quarter or so underway, the Jaguars are already in such deep of a hole that they have to abandon the run game.
2016 Week 7 vs OAK (5 / 48 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 3 / 0 rec)
It has become abundantly clear over the last 2 games that Ivory is seen as the lead back by the coaching staff. Ivory had his best game of the season on Sunday, despite poor blocking by the OL. He had the Jaguars running back's best carry of the season, following his blocking and outrunning Raider defenders to nearly score. Unfortunately, he looks remarkably uncomfortable as a pass catcher.
2016 Week 6 vs CHI (11 / 32 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 3 / 0 rec)
Outside of a select few runs, Ivory saw the same issues Yeldon had. There simply was not much room to run. One upside is that Ivory did see all of the goal line work, which resulted in a short touchdown for him.
2016 Week 4 vs IND (8 / 29 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Ivory did not see as much work as Yeldon, nor was he as impressive when given the chance to be. He looked mostly pedestrian, though he did show some tackle breaking ability that this offense has been needing. He was also the teams primary goal line back but only saw 1 carry in that area.
2016 Week 3 vs BAL (12 / 14 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
The Jaguars tried to get Ivory going after he missed the first two games but there was nothing there. The run blocking is simply non-existent and the Jaguars are not going to try to feature him as a receiver.
