Chris Ivory contributed a career-high 166 yards and one touchdown on 29 carries in the Jets' Week 4 win over the Dolphins.
Ivory made up for last week’s DNP by absolutely obliterating a Miami defense that seems to have lost all sense of direction. All day, Ivory devoured huge chunks of yards behind right guard Brian Winters. He attacked the sluggish Dolphins from all angles, beating them both inside and out. His monster game would have been even more enormous had Zac Stacy not spelled him on the goal line early in the third quarter. Ivory will be a locked and loaded RB2 next time out against Washington. The Jets have a bye week before that. Oct 4 - 1:33 PM

Chris Ivory (quad) is active for Week 4 against the Dolphins.

He was active last week as well, but unlike Week 3, he's actually going to play on Sunday. Ivory is the Jets' preferred early-down back and usually gets first crack at goal-line carries. That's enough to make him an RB2 against a Miami front seven that has underachieved to this point. Obviously, Bilal Powell's role will be scaled back this week.
Oct 4 - 8:27 AM

ESPN New York reports the Jets are concerned whether Chris Ivory (quad) can play the entire game Sunday.

Ivory is listed as probable, but the Jets don't think he's fully over his quad issue. Ivory didn’t see the field despite being active last week and could lose more work than expected to Bilal Powell. Ivory is more of a lower-end RB2/FLEX for Week 4.
Oct 3 - 6:58 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Chris Ivory (quad) is "good to go" for Week 4 against the Dolphins.

He's officially listed as probable. Ivory was active for last week's game but never saw the field. After practicing in full the last two days, we feel much better about Ivory's fantasy prospects heading into Week 4. Expect him to receive close to a full workload against a Miami defense that has underachieved terribly despite the offseason addition of Ndamukong Suh.
Oct 2 - 10:16 AM

Chris Ivory (quad) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Ivory will be returning to his early-down role in London after playing zero snaps in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Re-injury is a possibility for a player with Ivory's history of ailments, but he'll be a volume-based RB2 against the Dolphins.
Oct 1 - 1:21 PM

Chris Ivory (quad) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Ivory was active last week but unable to play through the injury. He played zero snaps. Look for Ivory and Bilal Powell to split work Week 4 against Miami.
Sep 30 - 3:25 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles expects Chris Ivory (quad) to be "good to go" against the Dolphins.

The fact that Ivory was active against the Eagles suggested he was "good to go," but it appears the Jets mean it this time. With the Dolphins' defense struggling at every level, Ivory will slide back in as an RB2 if he's active in London.
Sep 28 - 3:55 PM

Chris Ivory (quad/groin) said after Sunday's loss to Philadelphia that he felt "really good" on the sideline and could have played.

The Jets' team doctors obviously disagreed, keeping Ivory out while Bilal Powell was featured with 17 touches. Regardless, Ivory's comments would seem to bode well for his chances of resuming lead back work in Week 4 against the overrated, underachieving Dolphins defense. "I felt really good," Ivory said. "But the decision was made. I was happy with it. I was happy with it [because] I don't want something lingering around most of the year. I was able to sit back and be the emergency back and get ready for next week."
Sep 27 - 6:58 PM

Chris Ivory did not play a snap in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Although he was active for the game, Ivory (groin/quad) spent all four quarters with his helmet off on the sideline as Bilal Powell operated as the Jets' feature back, and Zac Stacy changed the pace. Ivory's status for Week 4 against the Dolphins is uncertain. Although Powell piled up seven catches against the Eagles, he did not run well enough (10-31) to threaten Ivory's early-down work. Ivory is banged up but at least has job security.
Sep 27 - 4:48 PM

Chris Ivory is officially active against the Eagles.

This lowers the fantasy appeal of Bilal Powell, though not by much. Ivory and Powell to this point have been sharing work, anyway, and Ivory is dealing with injuries to both his quadriceps and groin. He's a high-risk RB2 option in a tough matchup against Philly. Powell is just a PPR flex option.
Sep 27 - 11:30 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chris Ivory (quad) is "optimistic" he'll play Week 3 against the Eagles.

Signs continue to point to Ivory suiting up Sunday. On a short week after he was clearly limited in last Monday night's win over the Colts, expect Ivory and Bilal Powell to again split the workload in Gang Green's backfield. Powell has standalone value in PPR leagues as a FLEX, while Ivory is an RB2/3.
Sep 27 - 8:06 AM

Chris Ivory (questionable, quad/groin) expects to play Sunday against the Eagles.

The Jets aren't expected to make a decision on Ivory until after pre-game warmups, but he's trending in the right direction after practicing on a limited basis Friday. Ivory will be an RB3 if he plays.
Sep 26 - 8:24 PM

Coach Todd Bowles said Chris Ivory (questionable, quad/groin) will be a game-time decision for Week 3 against the Eagles.

As will Eric Decker (knee). Ivory practiced on a "limited" basis Friday, while Decker -- a longer shot to play -- did not participate. This will be a situation to monitor into Sunday morning. The good thing is the Eagles and Jets kick off at 1 PM ET, meaning we'll know if Ivory and Decker are active by 11:30 ET. Bilal Powell would be in for a significant workload if Ivory can't play, with Zac Stacy changing the pace on some early downs.
Sep 25 - 1:06 PM

Chris Ivory (quad, groin) acknowledges he could miss Sunday's game.

Coach Todd Bowles has already called Ivory a game-time decision, and Ivory says there's a chance he could make the injury worse by playing through it. "If it's not ready, it's not ready," Ivory said. "I just won't play." Owners need to have Bilal Powell on speed dial, while Zac Stacy would be in for some work on early downs.
Sep 24 - 7:49 PM

Chris Ivory (quad, groin) remained sidelined Thursday.

Per reporter Rich Cimini, coach Todd Bowles is "concerned," and believes Ivory will be a game-time decision. Ivory has the talent and role to be a high-end RB2, but has always struggled to stay healthy. Third-down back Bilal Powell will have a bigger role against the Eagles if Ivory sits, while Zac Stacy will help out on early downs. Owners need to be lining up an Ivory contingency plan. Daily Slant: If Ivory were to sit out on Sunday, Bilal Powell would become a very strong DFS option against the Eagles. Philadelphia is more stout against the run, but Powell is at or near minimum price across the industry and would push for at least 15-20 touches with Ivory on the shelf. Powell's value isn't game flow dependent (he'll be involved as a receiver if the Jets fall behind), so he'd be playable in any format if Ivory sits.
