Jets | Chris Ivory unlikely to play in preseason game

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 15:34:58 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is unlikely to play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, thanks to a tweaked hamstring. RBs Mike Goodson and Joe McKnight (head) haven't been available in drills, either, so RB Bilal Powell has received a lot of the repetitions in training camp.

Jets | Joe McKnight arrested

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 22:44:24 -0700

New York Jets RB Joe McKnight was arrested last week in New Jersey after police discovered two outstanding warrants when he was stopped for speeding and changing lanes without signaling. McKnight failed to pay a $200 fine for failing to produce an insurance card in another town, and another unpaid $120 fine from a ticket for failing to observe a traffic signal.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely McKnight will be penalized any further by the league in regards to this incident. He is fighting for a reserve RB role, and he is likely to serve as the team's kick returner when healthy.

Jets | Bilal Powell fighting for roster spot

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 19:14:16 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is in need of a strong training camp and preseason to stick around, as the team brought in RBs Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson during the offseason. Powell and RB Joe McKnight are fighting for jobs, and McKnight has value due to his skills as a kick returner. Powell's value increases if Goodson is suspended for his recent arrest.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Powell makes the roster, he still has an uphill climb to get into the mix for any meaningful touches. Avoid Powell on draft day in all fantasy leagues unless injuries decimate the team's RB corps during the preseason to open up a more prominent role.

Jets | Joe McKnight says No. 1 RB not decided

Fri, 14 Jun 2013 14:40:07 -0700

Jets | Chris Ivory has strong lead for featured work

Thu, 23 May 2013 22:06:53 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory impressed in practice Wednesday, May 22, and is lining up to be the feature back. Mike Goodson's legal troubles are jeopardizing his future with the team. Joe McKnight doesn't appear long for the club. Bilal Powell is the only true competition for touches.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory, who often dazzled in changeup work with the New Orleans Saints, has a high ceiling in this West Coast offense, but his floor is pretty low, as well, if the quarterback play (Mark Sanchez? Geno Smith?) doesn't come through. He's more safely drafted as an RB3 but might garner RB2 attention. Don't put yourself in the latter category based on numbers he hasn't produced yet.

Jets | Joe McKnight not giving up roster spot

Thu, 16 May 2013 12:31:12 -0700

New York Jets RB Joe McKnight said he is not going to give up his roster spot because the team brought in competition. "I don't care who they bring in, they're going (to have to) kill me to take my spot. You understand that now?" McKnight said in the locker room Thursday. "Just because they bring Goodson and Ivory in they already think I'm gone. They just bringing people in for competition, they ain't bringing nobody in to say, 'Joe is done.'"

Jets | Joe McKnight's spot could be in jeopardy

Wed, 08 May 2013 19:19:24 -0700

New York Jets RB Joe McKnight's roster spot could be in jeopardy if the team decides to sign free-agent WR Joshua Cribbs (Browns) because Cribbs could handle the kick return duties. The Jets also added RBs Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson this offseason.

Jets | Chris Ivory acquired

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 18:46:14 -0700

The New York Jets have acquired RB Chris Ivory from the New Orleans Saints for a fourth-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are putting together a somewhat crowded backfield. Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and offseason signee Mike Goodson are also in the mix. Ivory has the best combo of size and speed among them, though, and the Jets' desire to work out a long-term contract suggests that he'll be an interesting mid-round fantasy pick.

Jets | Mike Goodson unsure about snap distribution for RBs

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 17:23:47 -0700

Jets | Mike Goodson to compete for starting job

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 07:33:47 -0700

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson is expected to have a significant role with the team. He could potentially be the team's starting running back in 2013. RBs Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight do not have experience as every-down backs, and the Jets feel Goodson was one of the top sleepers in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Goodson's fantasy value increases somewhat after this signing; however, owners should wait and see how the rest of the offseason and training camp unfolds before labeling him a starting running back. The Jets may very well add a running back in the NFL Draft. Goodson does display some big-play ability and he is versatile, but he also fumbles too much. Expect him to be part of a committee in the backfield.
