Chris Ivory signs two-year deal with Bills

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have signed running back Chris Ivory to a two-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Let's be real here, Ivory is being brought in as a LeSean McCoy insurance policy. Their depth chart was among the shallowest in the league, so it's likely they'll continue to add depth through the draft or free agency. Ivory totaled just 821 yards on 229 carries (3.59 YPC) with the Jaguars, leading to his release this offseason. Ivory is not going to be a recommended fantasy option unless something were to happen to McCoy. Even then, he's limited to first and second down, making him a limited upside running back.

Jaguars part ways with Chris Ivory

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Jacksonville Jaguars have released running back Chris Ivory.

Fantasy Impact

The move saves the Jaguars more than $3 million in cap space. Ivory was considered a top-tier free agent running back just two years ago when he signed his five-year, $32 million dollar contract with the Jaguars. It was always going to end this way with a front-loaded contract, especially when you consider his inability to contribute on third down. The Jaguars will move forward with a lethal combination of Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon. As for Ivory, his days in the NFL may be numbered now that teams are looking to get younger at the position, and the bevy of talent available in the NFL Draft and free agency.

Chris Ivory sees 17 carries in Week 17

Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 42 yards on Sunday against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

The Jaguars leaned heavily on the run on Sunday, and it was good to see Ivory get substantial work even with both other Jaguars backs being active. He likely won't see all that much work in the playoffs absent a Fournette injury. He's under contract with the Jaguars through 2020, but unless he's traded or Fournette sustains a serious injury, he won't be a fantasy factor.

Chris Ivory disappoints in relief of Leonard Fournette

Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 42 yards on Sunday against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Houston is a tough matchup, but this was a disappointing effort from Ivory, especially since he got several carries from within the five-yard-line. He also left the game in the third quarter with an injury, but it does not appear to be serious. If Leonard Fournette remains out next weekend, Ivory should be an excellent play against the 49ers.

Chris Ivory totals 15 yards against the Colts

Chris Ivory took four carries for 12 yards and added one catch for another three yards during the Jags' 30-10 win over Indy on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

With Leonard Fournette close to 100 percent Ivory is unlikely to see a substantial snap count going forward. With Lenny's ankle still slightly balky however, it would be smart to keep Ivory as a handcuff just in case.
