Jets running back Chris Ivory is the early favourite to be the team's goal line specialist, and take over the reigns at running back in short-yardage situations. "If we were playing tomorrow, Chris Ivory would be the would be on the goal line, obviously." Jets running back coach Anthony Lynn said, via the New York Daily News. (Source: Sports Illustrated)

Fantasy Impact: This news would suggest that Chris Johnson is going to be the starting running back for Gang Green, and harms Ivory's status as an RB3/4 at best. For him to be an effective fantasy player, he's going to have to see a lot of these goal line attempts, which seems unlikely in a subpar offense. However, this may not be great news for Johnson owners as well, because this could limit the number of touchdowns he scores.

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.

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.

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

The fragile back is second in line in the Jets run-first scheme.
ProFootballTalk | Jul 29th
The Jets are confident — as they are with all things — that Chris Johnson will get plenty of touches and gain plenty of yards. But he might lose some chances near the goal line to Chris Ivory, for what running backs coach Anthony Lynn said was good reason. Lynn called Ivory “the best power runner…

Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Chris Ivory is the favorite to be the Jets' goal-line back this season.
Win My Fantasy League | Jul 26th
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.

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.
