Chris Ivory practicing, return to fantasy action still unknown

Ron Antonelli

Jets running back Chris Ivory returned to practice for the team on Wednesday. We discuss the fantasy implications.

New York Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated in the team's practice on Wednesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Ivory joined the Jets this past off-season after spending the last three years with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy impact: The fact that ivory is back at practice for the Jets is good news for his fantasy owners, especially considering that he hadn't practiced since suffering his injury in Week 3. Before getting hurt, Ivory had managed to put together just 72 yards rushing on 26 carries this season and had yet to score a touchdown.

On the down side of things, Bilal Powell has played well all season, and it doesn't seem likely that Ivory will take carries away from the Jets' leading back. Powell has averaged 4.4 yards per carry in comparison to Ivory's 2.8 yards per carry this season. More than likely any sort of split between the two backs would see the lion's share go to Powell.

Going into Week 5, the Jets face an Atlanta Falcons run defense that has given up the 11th most fantasy points to running backs this season.
