2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Nov-12-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (11/12): The volume is there, but over Ivory's last three games, the rushing yardage has been sorely missing. Over those weeks, Ivory has 55 carries for 84 yards. Finding the end zone three times and modest receiving totals have bailed out Fantasy owners though. As long as Ivory sees the same volume of work, he should remain a valuable RB2 with RB1 upside. If the volume decreases, it might be time to worry.

After rushing for 4.6 yards per carry in 2013 and 5.1 over a three-year span with the New Orleans Saints from 2010-12, Ivory recorded a career-low 4.1 YPC in 2014. The Jets' other running backs averaged 4.8 yards per rush. He finished the year with 198 rushes for 821 yards and six rushing scores. He put together two 100-yard rushing games despite having just one week with more than 20 touches. The added depth in the Jets' passing game should open more holes for him, but he'll be facing some very tough defensive lines in the AFC East. Ivory runs hard and breaks tackles at a high rate, but he won't average more than 15 touches per game and doesn't add much as a receiver. He actually set career highs in the passing game last year with 18 receptions and 123 yards. His style of play is boring in the fantasy market and doesn't hold any real impact upside over the course of a full season. At his best, Chris was just a weak RB2 option. This year, he'll compete for playing time with Stevan Ridley and Zac Stacy. However, he could complement his value by becoming a pass catcher more often now that Chris Johnson is no longer on the roster.
