Summary

The good news for Chris Ivory is that Stevan Ridley - who the Jets brought in to compete for the job - is coming off a big injury and had a bad case of 'the fumbles' in New England. The bad news is early reports (such as from NJ.com's Dom Cosentino) point to a split load for both backs. Ivory has been productive as a Jet, but the new regime has no loyalty to him. Ivory isn't great in the passing game, but has shown he can handle it a little, whereas Ridley has far fewer receptions to his name. Ivory is going to have to prove himself all over in camp to win the lion's share of the carries and has plenty of competition beyond Ridley as well. (May 15)

Jets | Running back situation up in the air (Thu May 21, 02:51 PM) - New York Jets coach Todd Bowles said his team's running back situation may take until the preseason to sort out. RB's Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Zac Stacy, Stevan Ridley and Daryl Richardson all have experience at the position, but no one has broken out yet.

Our View: Bowles has no attachment to any of the previous regime's running backs - we're looking at you Powell and Ivory - but Ridley is coming off a significant leg injury and Stacy faded during last year. There's room for everyone to get carries which hurts everyone's value right now. Until we see how things shake out more in camp, this is a situation to avoid.

Jets | NYJ to run more in 2015? (Tue May 19, 02:14 PM) - New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy and others could be busy this season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the reason he hired offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is because he has a track record of being able to run the ball, at least in his college coaching days. Bowles supposedly prefers a balanced, ball-control offense, which puts more of the onus on the running backs.

Our View: There's a huge question mark at quarterback (Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick) so it's wise for the Jets to lean on their rushing attack. Through free agency and trades they have compiled quite a group of backs led by Ivory. We believe in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, and he could make Ivory a value add for fantasy owners. Ivory's current ADP is RB35 (8.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
