Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his third 100-yard game of the season Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury early in the season and didn't take the reigns of the team's backfield until Week 6, but he's been a solid flex option since then with 699 rushing yards and three touchdowns over his last nine games.
 
11/29/2013 4:21:00 PM
Description: New York halfback Chris Ivory is listed as probable on the team's Week 13 injury report.
Insight: Ivory suffered a sprained ankle Sunday against Baltimore but has been able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. He'll split carries with Bilal Powell this week against the Dolphins.
 
11/25/2013 9:25:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory suffered an ankle sprain in the first quarter.
Insight: Ivory had been hot with 237 yards and two touchdowns over the previous two weeks, but finished with nine carries for 35 yards to the disappointment of fantasy owners everywhere. We await word of the severity.
 
11/17/2013 5:42:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory came within two yards of the 100-yard bonus in Week 11 at Buffalo.
Insight: Ivory left no doubt about who New York's lead RB is. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, while Bilal Powell had 27 yards on five rushes. Ivory has had 98 or more yards in three of the last four games and a touchdown in two straight.
 
11/3/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his second 100-yard game in three weeks Sunday against the Saints, his former team.
Insight: Ivory ran with a purpose against the team that traded him this past offseason, gaining 139 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries after seeing just six carries in Week 8 at Cincinnati. Bilal Powell finished with 29 yards on nine carries. The split will limit Ivory's fantasy value, but he should be the lead ballcarrier after New York's Week 10 bye.
 
10/20/2013 5:51:00 PM
Description: The Jets gave Chris Ivory 34 carries Sunday against the Patriots and the running back came away with 104 rushing yards.
Insight: According to Kimberly A. Martin of Newsday, coach Rex Ryan said Ivory had the "hot hand" so they stuck with him over Bilal Powell. If 3.1 ypc is considered hot, we don't want to know what cold is. Bilal Powell saw just three carries in the game. Neither player can be trusted in fantasy leagues.
 
9/29/2013 3:04:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) will miss Sunday's game with Tennessee.
Insight: Ivory pulled his hamstring in the win over Buffalo. Bilal Powell broke out with 149 yards on 27 carries against the Bills and will be the workhorse back in Week 4.
 
9/26/2013 3:36:00 PM
Description: Injured Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Ivory pulled his hamstring in last Sunday's win over Buffalo and is doubtful for Week 4 against the Titans. Bilal Powell broke out with 149 yards on 27 carries against the Bills and has 226 yards and a touchdown on 52 carries this season. Powell is a lock for 20 touches Sunday and should be started in most fantasy leagues.
 
9/25/2013 4:28:00 PM
Description: Injured Jets running back Chris Ivory did not practice on Wednesday and his chances of playing against Tennessee continue to shrink.
Insight: Ivory pulled his hamstring in last Sunday's win over Buffalo. Most expected Ivory to be the Jets' lead back this season but so far he's been outplayed by Bilal Powell (226 yards).

9/6/2013 9:54:00 AM
Description: Running backs coach Anthony Lynn said that Chris Ivory will get the goal line carries, according to a New York Daily News report.
Insight: If Ivory can stay healthy this season, there are plenty of questions in this area including a hamstring injury in the preseason, there are at least 250 carries with his name on them. If they include the goal line work he could be a viable RB2.
 
8/11/2013 2:47:00 PM
Description: According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated in individual drills Sunday.
Insight: Ivory has yet to complete a full practice due to a hamstring injury, which isn't a good sign for a running back that is considered injury-prone, but at least he's making progress in his recovery. If Ivory can stay healthy this season, there are at least 250 carries with his name on them.
 
8/6/2013 10:54:00 PM
Description: According to the New York Daily News, Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) said he "definitely" will be "full speed" by next Tuesday.
Insight: Ivory has yet to complete a full practice due to a hamstring injury, which isn't a good sign for a running back that is considered injury-prone. If Ivory can stay healthy this season, there are at least 250 carries with his name on them.

Description: According to ESPNNY.com, the Jets are likely going to have a committee backfield but are privately hoping that Chris Ivory will become a 15-carry per game back.
Insight: ESPNNY.com also said earlier this month that the Jets view Ivory as a "poor man's" Marshawn Lynch. Ivory was frequently banged up during his time with the Saints but also had to compete for carries with three or four other talented backs at all times in a pass-heavy offense. With only Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and Mike Goodson (if he ever shows up to training camp) to beat out, Ivory should emerge as the No. 1 back on the team if he can stay healthy. Remember, the New York Jets handed Shonn Greene 276 carries last year.

Description: According to ESPNNY.com, the Jets view Chris Ivory as a poor man's Marshawn Lynch.
Insight: Ivory caused 12 missed tackles on just 40 rushing attempts, which nearly equaled former New York running back Shonn Greene's total of 15 on 276 attempts, according to Pro Football Focus. Ivory will have to stay healthy, but if he does he's going to get a ton of touches this season.
 
5/23/2013 6:59:00 PM
Description: With Mike Goodson's future up in the air, Chris Ivory doesn't have much competition to be the Jets' feature back, according to the New York Post.
Insight: Goodson was arrested last week on drugs and weapons charges, leaving just Ivory, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in the backfield, and new GM John Idzik has been trying to dump McKnight. Ivory showed flashes in limited playing time with New Orleans, averaging 5.1 yards per carry and scoring eight touchdowns on 256 carries in 24 career games.

Description: The Jets have inked running back Chris Ivory to a new three-year, $10 million contract. SOURCE: Manish Mehta, New York Daily News
Insight: The 25-year-old is New York's running back of the future. The Jets may have also found their quarterback of the future after taking Geno Smith with the 39th pick at Friday night's NFL Draft.

Description: New Orleans traded running back Chris Ivory to the Jets for a fourth-round pick. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: We heard rumblings about an Ivory trade earlier in the week and now it looks like the deal has finally come to fruition. Ivory was never a fantasy-worthy back in New Orleans but we're expecting that to change now that he's part of a more run-oriented offense in New York.

Description: The Jets are trying to work out a deal for New Orleans running back Chris Ivory. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: The Jets would be willing to part with a fifth-round pick in next week's draft to complete the trade. After backing up Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram last season, Ivory would have a chance to be a starter in New York.
 
12/14/2012 3:55:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) will miss Week 15 against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Ivory was a hot waiver wire property after a couple of big weeks against Philadelphia and Atlanta, but hasn't cracked the 40-yard mark or the goal line in the last three weeks.
