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. Ridley continues to be listed on the active/PUP list, though he recently told ESPN's Mike Reiss he feels as though he'll be back soon. Still it appears that the Jets are looking to keep Ivory as their every down back. The expectation is that his carries will still not rise much above his 198 from last season and he may still be replaced on third downs by Bilal Powell as Ivory isn't great in the passing game. He has a leg up over Ridley though, as Ivory has shown he can handle it a little, whereas Ridley has far fewer receptions to his name. So far nobody has really challenged Ivory for the top spot, and that is unlikely to change any time soon. (August 18)

Jets | Chris Ivory having great camp (Fri Aug 28, 09:20 AM) - New York Jets RB Chris Ivory has had the best camp since landing with the Jets in 2013 and is primed for a career year, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Ivory could see an expansion of his role in the passing game as well as QB Ryan Fitzpatrick throws to his checkdown options.

Our View: We'll see if he can really deliver on the potential we all saw back in the Saints days. We have him as an RB3 and he's tracking at an ADP of the 24th back off the board at the start of the fifth round.

Jets | Chris Ivory primed for big year? (Tue Aug 25, 06:12 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Ivory will play a vital role in the Jets' offense this season. Ivory believes his best is yet to come. 'People haven't seen my full potential,' Ivory said. 'People that actually watch the game, they know my talent and what I'm capable of. Me, within myself, I definitely know what I'm capable of. I'm striving for greatness.'

Our View: With Stevan Ridley still healing, Bilal Powell relatively average and Zac Stacy unimpressive--yes Ivory is the guy they will lean on. We see him as an RB3 to start with, and we don't expect huge numbers from him, but they'll use him to keep the defense honest and he will see more passes this season than he did in 2014.
