At the beginning of the NFL season, it appeared that running backs Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson would split time in the backfield for the New York Jets. Over the last two weeks however, Rex Ryan and the rest of the Jets coaching staff have slowly been placing the offense in Chris Ivory’s hands.

The former New Orleans Saint has seen an average increase of 15 carries per week, good news for fantasy owners.

He has also been a good option out of the backfield for struggling quarterback, Geno Smith.
