Chris Ivory had 35 yards and a touchdown on five carries against the Atlanta Falcons on Friday evening. Speaking about the running back, teammate Brandon Marshall said: "The offense starts with Chris Ivory, that's what it starts with - Chris Ivory and the hogs up front." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Ivory's performance and Marshall's words were both encouraging for his fantasy value. The former New Orleans Saint appears to be in the lead to take the starting job in New York, and if he does then he should get plenty of chance to run the ball with a shaky quarterback situation. He should be an enticing mid-round option for those still to draft.

Chris Ivory scored on a 33 yard run against the Atlanta Falcons Friday night. After punting on their first five possessions, Ivory broke the run in the second quarter. Ivory was 5 for 36 in the game. The Jets went on to win 30-22.

Fantasy Impact: While 5 for 36 looks good generally, Ivory had a tough time getting going. The Jets didn't move the ball early, as Ryan Fitzpatrick is getting used his new offense. If Ivory stays atop the depth chart, expect low end RB2 numbers from him.

Ivory is a lot better than the old Jets staff allowed him to be. He's probably always an injury risk because of him battering ram style, but he has monster upside as a value pick.

We are looking at a nice value pick in Chris Ivory who is the starting RB for the Jets. He has 1,000 yard upside potential with 6 TDs, with that amount of upside he is a nice back-up RB this year.

Ivory will get his when he's healthy and getting snaps. He's the best pure runner on the team and should remain the lead back. He's not a sexy pick, but he can be had a value.

Another player that is being overlooked this season. The Jets brought in a dinged up Stevan Ridley and an unfamiliar Zac Stacy to compliment the existing Ivory and Powell. He should flirt with 15+ touches a game and is a great value as your RB3.

This could be a big year for Ivory. He's versatile and could thrive as an every down back if given the opportunity. There isn't much competition for carries in NYJ, so it's his job to lose at this point. Ivory could be a very solid value pick as he's going as the 33rd RB off the board according to ADP.

Ivory solidifying his role that earned him a 19th overall standard league finish last year while Ridley continues to rehab torn ligaments.

The Jets should pass the ball more this season with the addition of Brandon Marshall and rookie Devin Smith. That does not bode well for Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley, regardless if Chris Johnson is no longer in the mix. New offensive coordinator Chan Gailey has not run the football greater than 45% of the time over the past 4 years as an offensive coordinator. It all adds up to another fantasy running back situation that you want to avoid, especially with injury prone Ridley.

Ivory projects to be the lead back in a very crowded Jets backfield. He will have RB2 value at times this year, but he also is going to have games where he does not do much. At the right value, he could help your fantasy team.

There's a large contingent of football fans that staunchly believe preseason games are completely inconsequential. To these naysayers, they're nothing more than an evaluation phase for head coaches looking to comprise the best 53-man roster possible. However, most fanatics would vehemently disagree. Exhibition action gives owners the opportunity to gain invaluable insight into potential sleepers a...

Since joining the Jets in 2013, Chris Ivory has led the team in carries both years. That isn’t exactly saying a whole lot, as he failed to crack 200 carries in either season. That said, the Jets did bring in some real competition last year in former star Chris Johnson. This year the Jets have... Read More
