Chris Ivory injury update: Hamstring getting better but fantasy value tangled up in committee

Kevin C. Cox

Chris Ivory continues to practice on schedule and is probable for Week 6. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets running back Chris Ivory is officially listed as probable for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ivory remains limited in practice with a hamstring injury, but it's slowly starting to get better and he should be active for the second week in a row after missing Week 4. He made his return to game action in Monday's win over the Atlanta Falcons, rushing for 27 yards on four carries. He has 30 carries for 99 yards on the season.

Fantasy impact: Ivory went from one fantasy quagmire to another--from a lingering hamstring injury to a confusing three-headed running back committee. Bilal Powell has been carrying most of the load with Ivory and Mike Goodson out, but now that both are back in the fold, the Jets may spread out carries more evenly. Powell remains the only player worth starting due to his volume of carries, but Ivory is someone to monitor over the coming weeks.
