From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Ivory is running as well as he has in his entire career, and the Jets are willing to feed him to the tune of at least 15-20 touches a game now. Enjoy the ride while it lasts. Ivory can still be submarined by the Jets poor offense putting him in a bad game script for a running back, but the addition of Percy Harvin can only help him in this respect, and to give defenses more to think about on any given play.

Week 8: vs Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Jets' 'Chrises' combination of Chris Ivory (21/107/1 rushing with 4/18/0 receiving) and Chris Johnson (13/61/0 rushing with 2/19/0 receiving) moved the ball very well indeed at New England, with 43/218/1 rushing as a team when the dust settled on a narrow two-point loss to Tom Brady and company. Ivory has gradually become the lead back in this committee, though Johnson still sees a non-trivial amount of touches when the Jets' offense is grinding well. Ivory is the best bet to be a solid fantasy back, though. The Bills' rush D is really stout, ranking fourth in terms of average yards allowed per game (80.4), and they are tied with K.C. for first in the NFL with zero rushing scores given up to date. Last week, Minnesota managed 29/158/0 rushing at Buffalo, though, after New England had 27/50/0 rushing there two games back. Most weeks, teams are well under 100 yards rushing when the Bills are playing across from them. This looks like a tough matchup for the home-team Chrises.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs SD (9 / 44 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Game flow continues to work against Chris Ivory. New York's defense was unable to stop Philip Rivers and New York's passing attack was unable to generate many positive plays. Therefore, New York trailed by double digits for nearly the entire game. Ivory was able to develop a rhythm in the fourth quarter when he parlayed three carries into 24 yards, but the runs came against relaxed defensive fronts. Chris Johnson lost a fumble in the second quarter, which further cemented Ivory's billing as New York's top running back.

2014 Week 6 vs DEN (8 / 7 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Ivory ran with tenacity, but his offensive line was unable to open any running lanes. Denver stacked the box and put the onus on Smith and his receivers. Ivory received all of New York's red zone carries, which resulted in minimal gains, but these runs set-up Smith's touchdown passes. Despite receiving a more prominent pass catching role during the last few weeks, Ivory was only targeted twice. He turned one of his targets into a 14 yard gain on a quick screen.

2014 Week 7 vs NE (21 / 107 / 1 rush, 4 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)

Chris Ivory was a complete non-factor last week against Denver, but bounced back in a big-way against New England. New York's offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage and New England's Front 7 was unable to handle Ivory's physical running style. Ivory appeared in nearly half of New York's offensive sets and scored New York's first touchdown. Midway through the third quarter, Ivory scored from New England's 1-yard line. Ivory ran off left tackle, was initially stopped, but dove over defenders for the score. Ivory was New York's offense and ran ahead of Chris Johnson for the fifth straight week.


Latest News

Jets | Chris Ivory has 100-yard game (Thu Oct 16, 11:48 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 21 carries for a season-high 107 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 16. He also added four catches for 18 yards.

Our View: The Jets continue to give Ivory twice as many touches as Chris Johnson, and he is delivering as one of the better lead backs in the NFL right now. He's a strong RB2 if he can keep this up and the Jets can stay in games.
