Chris Ivory rushed 20 times for 69 yards in Week 9 against the Bengals.
He added three catches for 34 yards. Ivory didn't have any big plays outside of a 29-yard screen. He split carries with T.J. Yeldon, but got the majority of second-half work with Jacksonville closing out a win. With Leonard Fournette expected to return next week, Ivory won't be more than a handcuff. Nov 5 - 4:20 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 47 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Colts.

Ivory started with Leonard Fournette sidelined. He scored on a third-down run at the goal-line on the opening drive, but struggled the rest of the game. Ivory missed a block that led to a Blake Bortles fumble, then fumbled on the first drive of second half. With Fournette expected to return after the Week 7 bye, it won't be surprising if Yeldon cuts into Ivory's role.

Chris Ivory caught 9-of-10 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 6 loss to the Rams.

Stunningly, Ivory tied for the team lead in targets, and more than doubled his season receptions total. Ivory entered Week 6 with 80 career catches. His touchdown was a 22-yarder on a screen. Ivory caught the pass in a whole mess of traffic before somehow getting loose down the right sideline for the score. It was impressive on his part. Ivory is seeing plenty of work behind Leonard Fournette, but it isn't translating to standalone value in fantasy leagues.
Oct 15 - 7:42 PM

Chris Ivory rushed eight times for 41 yards in the Jaguars' Week 5 win over the Steelers.

It was the second week in a row with more than 40 yards for Ivory, and he even got a shot at the goal line in the second quarter. Leonard Fournette is going to dominate work, but Ivory is clearly going to get a handful of touches every game. Even so, he is not an option in standard leagues.
Oct 8 - 5:20 PM

Chris Ivory rushed nine times for 42 yards against the Jets in Week 4.

Ivory also caught 1-of-3 targets for two yards. He continues to spell Leonard Fournette and did get some goal-line snaps in this game. If the Jaguars defense can play well most weeks, Ivory should still be able to flirt with 7-10 touches per game. That said, almost all his value lies as a handcuff, but he likely wouldn't be featured in a best-case scenario anyway.
Oct 1 - 4:46 PM

Chris Ivory rushed six times for 17 yards and hauled in both his targets for 25 yards in the Jaguars' Week 3 win over the Ravens in London.

T.J. Yeldon was once again a healthy scratch, leaving Ivory as the clear backup behind Leonard Fournette. He made the work count against Baltimore, ripping off a 14-yard gain on a screen pass early in the game and adding a nine-yard run in the second half, but he will at best be a 10-touch player while Fournette is healthy. His only fantasy value is as a handcuff in deeper leagues.

Chris Ivory delivered 17 yards on six carries while snagging three-of-four targets for 31 yards Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

All of his carries came in the first half as Jacksonville put an emphasis on its running game early on. Once the Titans started putting points on the board (they won 37-16 after leading 6-3 halftime), the Jaguars had to counter by airing it out, which essentially took Ivory out of the game. Ivory has clearly distanced himself from T.J. Yeldon, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but he’s still just a change-of-pace option behind starter Leonard Fournette. He’ll get the Ravens in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:17 PM

Chris Ivory rushed nine times for 42 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Jaguars' Week 1 win over the Texans.

Ivory was very effective in the Jaguars' change-up back role behind Leonard Fournette, who logged a whopping 29 touches. It certainly helped that Jacksonville had a big first-half lead and was able to play smash-mouth football, piling up a whopping 39 rushing attempts compared to just 21 passes. Ivory still shouldn't be viewed as offering much standalone value, but he's worth rostering in 12- and 14-teamers as a back getting touches on a run-first team.
Sep 10 - 4:56 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 10 times for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

With both Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon out, Ivory was the clear lead back. He had a solid 10-yard gain but was otherwise lackluster. If Fournette's injury proves to be more serious than what's thought, Ivory looks like the best bet for short yardage work.
Aug 24 - 10:42 PM

First Coast News' Mike Kaye expects Chris Ivory to open the season as the Jaguars' short-yardage running back.

Kaye didn't say "goal-line" back, but that would be the concern if this proves to be true. The Jaguars are paying Ivory a ton of money in the second year of his deal and want to keep him involved, but Fournette (6'/228) is even bigger than Ivory (6'/223). Ultimately, Fournette should get all the early-down work and most of the scoring opportunities. However, it sounds like Ivory could vulture some.
Aug 8 - 9:21 PM

Chris Ivory (hamstring) is inactive for Week 17 against the Colts.

It's a fitting end to what can only be declared an outright disaster of a first year in Jacksonville for Ivory. He'll head into season two of his "five-year, $32 million" contract having appeared in just 11-of-16 games in 2016, and averaging 3.75 yards per carry. With the Jaguars likely to do some housecleaning, soon-to-be 29-year-old Ivory could be sent packing.
Jan 1 - 11:31 AM

Chris Ivory (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17 against the Colts.

Ivory figures to lead this backfield with T.J. Yeldon on I.R. The Jaguars are also getting back Denard Robinson from a three-week high ankle sprain.

Chris Ivory (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

His status for Week 17 has never been in doubt. With T.J. Yeldon (ankle, I.R.) hurt, Ivory should see a full complement of carries Sunday against Indianapolis. He matched a season-high with 114 yards from scrimmage last week in a win over the Titans.

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

Ivory's hamstring has been nagging at him for weeks now. With T.J. Yeldon (ankle) already on I.R., Denard Robinson are Corey Grant are next up.

Chris Ivory rushed 14 times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-6 targets for 69 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Ivory took over as the Jaguars' primary back due to T.J. Yeldon's ankle aggravation, scoring from a yard out before suffering an apparent aggravation of his own previous hamstring injury. The health of both Yeldon and Ivory are question marks entering Week 17 against the Colts. Corey Grant is the No. 3 back.
