Chris Ivory with an impressive 56-yard TD, on the fantasy radar

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Chris Ivory had an amazing TD for the first TD for New Orleans.

Chris Ivory broke a big 56-yard run for the score in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Ivory has been outperfomring former Heisman winner Mark Ingram and this is his second week in a row with a TD. Ivory also had 10 carries for 48 yards in last week's win against the Eagles.

The injury to Darren Sproles (hand) has turned the Saints backfield into a muddled mess with a three-way split going between Ivory, Ingram and Pierre Thomas. Ivory has shown some flashes in his career with three 100-yard games. He had a 127-yard, one-TD outing in last year's regular season finale, which was his shy of his 158-yard game back in the 2010 season.

The Saints could be without Sproles for the rest of the regular season, so this will be a position battle to keep an eye on for those that fancy themselves as knowledgeable fantasy owners. Ivory is owned in just 2.3 percent of fantasy leagues and has the makings of being a hot pickup should he keep this up.
