Chris Ivory comes through again for Jets, fantasy owners

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets running back produced his third big game in his last four outings. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets running back Chris Ivory continued his hot streak of late Sunday. Ivory had his third double-digit fantasy day in his last four outings as the Jets lost to the Buffalo Bills, 37-14.

On 15 carries, Ivory rushed for 98 yards and a touchdown, bringing him to 467 rushing yards and two scores on the year. In his last four games, Ivory has 352 yards, and that includes an 11-yard game in Week 8. His touchdown Sunday came on a 1-yard run early in the second half.

Fantasy impact: Ivory's first big game -- 34 rushes, 104 yards in Week 7 -- seemed like a fluke, as he gained that yardage despite only 3.1 yards per carry. It seemed a clear quantity-over-quality situation. His last two games, though, have provided 237 yards in value on only 33 carries, an average of more than 7 yards per rush.

It remains to be seen whether Ivory can remain healthy long-term, but as long as he's out there, he's pretty clearly supplanted Bilal Powell as the team's top running back. He's a low-end RB2 at best, but he's providing plenty of value so far.
