Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 17: Chris Ivory, Jets still too weak on offense

The Jets don't have much offensive firepower, so it that enough to sit Chris Ivory in fantasy leagues?

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Unlike most weeks, the New York Jets were able to move the ball quite well against the Cleveland Browns last week. Chris Ivory had a lot to do with it, carrying the ball 22 times for 109 yards in the 24-13 victory, and he'll look to have a repeat performance.

He's become the featured back for the Jets with 14.0 carries per game over his last four games. However, the Jets still aren't quite hitting on all cylinders on offense, especially on the road. Ivory only has one rushing touchdown on the road this year, and his carries at home are more than double his totes on the road.

Quarterback Geno Smith is a nightmare as a visitor and the Jets aren't going to be racking up the points against the Dolphins. The Fish have a nice pass rush and they're likely going to force Geno to make a lot of mistakes.

Fantasy impact: The Dolphins have been getting gashed lately, so if you're willing to trust Geno on the road and not completely take the Jets out of this game, Ivory is nice player to use as an RB2.
