The New York Jets opened up their training camp on Thursday, with running back Chris Ivory participating in limited activity. It was reported that Ivory 'tweaked his hamstring' while working out on his own, which happened at some point between last month's minicamp and training camp. (Source: The Star-Ledger)

Fantasy Impact: Ivory should be fine after sustaining the injury to his hamstring, however it may be worth watching his health closely throughout the season. Ivory has a tough, physical running style, so it isn't hard to imagine that he may pick up an injury or two in 2014. However, health isn't the biggest threat to Ivory's fantasy production. Even though it is unclear at the moment, Chris Ivory may see less of the ball this season because of the acquisition of fellow running back Chris Johnson, who has been slated to take the role of lead back for the Jets heading into September. At the moment, it would be hard to see the former Saints rusher as anything more than an RB4.

Just how much of his role will Chris Johnson cut into?

Chris Ivory has plenty of juice in his legs but is injury prone and playing behind a back with every-down skills in Chris Johnson. Ivory should still flirt with flex2 value and has shown he can produce at an RB2 level if Johnson misses time or gets demoted. The Jets will run enough for both backs to have value and both will see their value spike if Michael Vick gets starts this season.

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports New York Jets running back Chris Ivory sat out of team drills Thursday with a hamstring injury. Despite Ivory's track record of hamstring injuries last season, Jets head coach Rex Ryan did not seem to be worried."He did have a little bit of a hamstring, but he's fine," Ryan said via The Star-Ledger. "It's not a major deal."Ivory has "a little bit of a hamstring...

With Chris Johnson in town, many wonder if there will be a timeshare or not. Ivory was good last season, and by the numbers, was a better runner than CJ, but Johnson could improve with a better offensive line in front of him. I'm on the fence about drafting either guy in leagues if I can avoid them.

The fragile back is second in line in the Jets run-first scheme.

The coaching staff is unchanged in New York and Ivory almost had 1,000 rushing yards. He will slip late in drafts, but he is a sneaky bye week filler RB to select.

Considering the Jets offense, I do not think Ivory did that bad with 833 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns. I do not think he will ever be an elite fantasy back, but with WR Eric Decker improving the passing offense, Ivory could emerge as a nice flex play in 2014. Chris Johnson will lead the team in carries, but Ivory will see plenty of touches and could emerge as the goal line option.
