New York Jets running back Chris Ivory isn't quite ready to give fantasy owners a look at him in the preseason. Ivory tells the New York Daily News that he likely won't play on Friday against the Detroit Lions but expects to be back at full speed by early next week.
Fantasy Impact: Ivory is getting his chance to be a No. 1 running back in New York. The Saints had a number of good running backs on their roster and Ivory -- despite showing bursts of talent -- never got regular opportunities in New Orleans.
Fantasy owners don't yet need to worry about the hamstring injury and should still target Ivory as a No. 2/3 running back on draft day depending on the league format. Ivory could be a steal this season.
