Chris Ivory | New York Jets | RB
2013 Experience: 4th Season
|Twitter News||Team Schedule|
Fantasy Football Outlook: It looked like Chris Ivory was going to wear the brown hate again in New Orleans as the team placed a second round tender tag on him back in February. After he signed his tender, the Saints traded Ivory away for a 4th round pick, finally giving this talented young running back a chance to start.
Ivory’s main competition in camp will be Mike Goodson who is coming over from a one-year stint with the Raiders. Goodson has talent, but we should expect Ivory to win the early down role as the banger in this running back committee.
While Ivory will be a breakout candidate to watch with RB2 upside, we need to understand some of his limitations. First off, he’s consistently had problems with injuries throughout his career, and second, he won’t do much in the passing game.
Not good for those of you in PPR leagues for sure, so keep that in mind as he’s better suited for standard leagues and touchdown-only, or touchdown-heavy leagues. I wouldn’t blame you for grabbing Ivory as your third running back but be careful about selecting him as your No.2 as we could see his fantasy stock rise because of all the talk from fantasy experts and fellow league owners.

Summer 2012, Ivory’s Fantasy Outlook
Add Chris Ivory’s name to the list of reasons why the Saints will remain a committee backfield. Ivory is the fourth man on the depth chart but continued knee problems for Mark Ingram, may keep him active on game days. For now, Ivory will need injuries in front of him to get a chance to play, but given the history of the Saints backfield, that is likely to happen.
More of a bruiser between the tackles; Ivory can give you quality flex play minutes, in deep leagues, if given a regular role.
