Chris Ivory climbs back over 100 yards for Jets, fantasy owners

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

The Jets running back had his second-most rushing yards of the season Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets running back Chris Ivory had his second-biggest rushing day of the season Sunday. Behind him, backup running back Bilal Powell had his third-most rushing yards of the year. The rushing performances came in the team's 24-13 win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday.

Ivory had 109 rushing yards on 20 carries, his first time over 100 yards since going for 139 in Week 9. Meanwhile, Powell ran for 54 yards on seven carries, adding 26 receiving yards on four catches. Powell's production had really fallen off after his hot stretch in Weeks 2-4, when the running back averaged 112 yards and 12 fantasy points over the three-game stretch.

Fantasy impact: The Jets play the Miami Dolphins in Week 17, in a game that the Jets will really want to win to finish the season at an even 8-8. The Dolphins struggle a bit against the run, so Ivory and Powell ought to have a chance on at least nominal value again next week.
