You saw the Matthew Berry 100 facts article, surely. Yeldon received loads of first quarter touches, but then the Jaguars played from behind all game and were slinging the ball all over the yard. If Ivory wins the Jaguars' job this season, he could become a workhorse that finishes a top ten running back again this season after ending up No. 8 in 2015.

Chris Ivory led the Jaguars' rushing attack in Saturday's loss against the Buccaneers with 25 yards on six attempts.

Fantasy Impact: Ivory did well in the Jaguars' second preseason game, but could have had an even better stat line, if it wasn't for a penalty that negated a nine yard rush. Although he did well with what he was given, he still split first-team carries with T.J. Yeldon. Ivory should be considered a low-end flex play while Yeldon is there to steal carries.

Ivory is now a Jaguar, which is a step down from the Jets, especially with T.J. Yeldon taking a big piece of a running back committee. Ivory's running style is abusive, both to him and his opponents. That abuse puts Ivory in a riskier category than other backs, but he gets the job done when healthy. Yeldon is younger and more likely to take over the job, but this is in no way a clear-cut case of one back being better than the other. I will try to avoid the situation if possible

If Yeldon falters Ivory will push for Rb1 numbers weekly

Listed as a co starter with Yeldon but his goal line role gives him the slight edge.

Ivory looks like he will be the lead-back and in line for goal line work, he is a RB2 in an explosive offense, but will probably not see enough touches to be a RB1.
