Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 9 vs CHI (7 / 36 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory exited Buffalo's game against Chicago with a shoulder injury. The play looked innocuous, but Ivory was reportedly taken to a hospital after the game. Before his injury, Ivory was the most effective Buffalo running back. Ivory's north-south style has been more effective than McCoy's lateral cutting style of late, and Sunday was no exception. Ivory was the primary back on multiple series in the first half. Ivory did get the first goal line opportunity of the game but was stopped short of the end zone on the carry he was injured. Ivory will look to return next Sunday against the Jets.
2018 Week 8 vs NE (6 / 34 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Ivory was arguably the best Bills offensive player in the home loss to New England. Ivory hit interior holes hard with a no-nonsense style compared to LeSean McCoy bouncing plays attempting to hit home runs without success. Ivory had three chunk gains in the game, including exhibiting power and a spin move on his most impressive run. Ivory did log a drop in addition to his successful screen gain in the passing game.
2018 Week 7 vs IND (16 / 81 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory came in for relief after LeSean McCoy left with a head injury. Ivory ran hard and had some of the better interior running success Buffalo has had this season. He was the clear three down back after McCoy left, with Marcus Murphy rotating into the game in the second half. Ivory left the game briefly but returned and showed no signs of an injury. Ivory is an effective power runner and projects as the lead back if McCoy misses time.
2018 Week 6 vs HOU (6 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory has solidified himself as the clear backup to LeSean McCoy. Ivory ran hard against Houston and was used early in the game while also operating in short yardage. Buffalo had a late lead and used Ivory as their back trying to grind away the clock.
2018 Week 5 vs TEN (14 / 43 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory saw extensive work in the offense. Ivory was the primary short yardage back, but also got standalone work in relief of LeSean McCoy. Ivory's workload of 14 carries was a product of a game script that allowed Buffalo to run the ball 43 times while only attempting 19 passes. Ivory was physical and broke tackles for conversions and key runs on the final drive to set up a game winning field goal.
2018 Week 4 vs GB (6 / 15 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory worked as the backup to LeSean McCoy. Ivory got some short yardage work early in the game and led Buffalo in carries. Ivory runs hard but is not a fantasy option outside of a McCoy injury or a goal line touchdown.
2018 Week 3 vs MIN (20 / 56 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 70 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory held the lead back role in relief of an injured LeSean McCoy. Ivory was used in both the running and passing game, running with power and showed capability to get yards after contact. Ivory's big play was a scramble drill where Ivory released out of the backfield and got a long runway down the sideline. Much of Marcus Murphy's workload was in gadget type plays, so Ivory should continue the lead workload if McCoy misses additional time.
2018 Week 2 vs LAC (2 / 7 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 30 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory was the third back in order of usage in the Buffalo backfield but had the best fantasy performance. Ivory managed a goal line score, and later had a nice catch and run that set up another Buffalo touchdown.
2018 Week 1 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Ivory worked as a backup running back, getting the third opportunity at the position. Ivory only managed 3 yards on his 3 carries, but his job is one to monitor, with Marcus Murphy appearing before Ivory in the game.
