Fantasy start/sit advice, Week 10: Chris Ivory an average RB play

The Jets running back is putting together a solid season. Can he keep it up in Week 10?

New York Jets running back Chris Ivory has been having a solid season thus far while splitting time with Chris Johnson. Through nine games, Ivory has run 109 times for 497 yards (4.6 YPC) and five touchdowns. Although he's only carried the ball more than 13 times on two occasions, Ivory has managed a pair of games over 100 yards rushing. It's also worth noting that the last time he lost a fumble was back in 2010. While Ivory has proven to be effective, he will not see enough volume to become an RB1 for as long as Chris Johnson is in the mix.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson and Ivory will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10. Pittsburgh's middle-of-the-pack front-seven allows the 15th-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Looking to bounce back from his 8/22 line last week, Ivory is a mid-range RB2 play with more value in standard leagues than in PPR.
