Chris Ivory carried the ball 10 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' season opener against the Raiders, including a 71-yard run in the fourth quarter. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: The Jets' backfield had a solid rushing day for owners. Ivory showed that despite being in a time share, he is a viable fantasy option as he is a tough tackle and wont to break long runs.

Chris Ivory carried the ball six times for 50 yards and added one catch for 23 yards in Fridays game against the Giants.
Fantasy Impact: It looks like Ivory is out to prove to everyone he is more than just a backup RB. He ran with a purpose and nearly took his lone reception all the way. Though he might not be a big part of the passing game, expect Ivory to see plenty of work in the red-zone, especially in goal-line situations. It isn't clear yet just how the Jets will split carries between Chris Johnson and Ivory but he is very draftable in nearly every league, especially as a handcuff to Chris Johnson. Think of him as a Joique Bell type player.

Fantasy Impact: Missing this game means that Ivory has less of a chance to stake his claim for the starting RB spot in New York. It is likely that Chris Johnson will start over Ivory anyway, but you have to figure that Ivory will now remain behind Johnson on the depth chart.

Fantasy Impact: This is very good news to hear. Ivory could get more carries than most people think and could be a steal on draft day. He should get the bulk of the goal-line carries and if the newly acquired Chris Johnson struggles, expect the Jets to look Ivory's way. He is a must draft as a handcuff to CJ2K in 2014.

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.
