Jaguars | Chris Ivory successful on first down

Sun, 22 May 2016 21:01:34 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory's 736 yards gained on first-down carries last year were the third most in the NFL, and beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Ivory will handle more carries on first and second down than RB T.J. Yeldon, and Yeldon will serve as the primary third-down back.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how the carries will be distributed, but Ivory and Yeldon are going to curb the fantasy upside of each other. Yeldon has more upside, especially in PPR formats, but Ivory should still be a potential RB3.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory could start

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 20:05:14 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory and RB T.J. Yeldon will be in a competition to see who opens the 2016 season as the starter, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of who is officially listed as the starter, both backs should see their share of touches. Yeldon has more upside and could sneak into RB2 territory, and Ivory should make a serviceable RB3.

Jaguars | Lighter load could help T.J. Yeldon

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 20:03:35 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon led all running backs with 49.3 snaps per game in 2015, and head coach Gus Braldey said RB Chris Ivory was signed in part to help keep Yeldon healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory will cut into Yeldon's workload, but a fresher Yeldon could easily be more productive overall if he is able to play all 16 games. Consider Yeldon a strong RB3 heading into 2016.

Jaguars | Yeldon, Ivory to split carries

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 10:30:28 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory will likely split carries in 2016, according to general manager David Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: That was fairly obvious, but Yeldon holds the upside over Ivory. Ivory seemingly has nagging injuries every year, and Yeldon has the home-run potential. Both will be worth consideration as a low-end RB2, but your RBs are looking good with either of them as an RB3.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory financials

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 16:55:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory's new contract is a five-year deal worth $32 million, including $10 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Tip: While Ivory's addition solidifies the Jaguars' backfield, it seriously hurts his immediate fantasy prospects as well as T.J. Yeldon's. Both backs should be considered nothing more than flex options for now.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory contract note

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 05:23:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Chris Ivory (Jets) agreed to a five-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars that will be worth more than $6 million per season.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will form a committee, which will render both to RB3 status.

Jaguars | Chris Ivory expected to join Jacksonville

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 19:13:30 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is expected to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars when free agency begins on Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: A curious move to say the least for the Jaguars, who repeatedly expressed their satisfaction with T.J. Yeldon's ability to handle a full workload. Ivory will almost certainly form a committee with Yeldon and assume goal-line and short-yardage duties, robbing the rookie of much of the fantasy value he figured to have in an improving offense in 2016. Both backs figure to be flex options at best if Ivory ends up in Jacksonville.

Jets | Chris Ivory wants certain deal

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 15:39:52 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is looking for a deal around $6.5 million per year and at minimum three years in length.

Fantasy Tip: There are plenty of teams wanting to sign Ivory, as he is one of the hottest commodities among free-agent running backs this year. There's probably at least one team willing to pay up for Ivory, who, for now, should be regarded as a RB2 for next season.

Jaguars | Jacksonville looking for running back

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 12:10:41 -0800

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be a wild card in free agency when going after running backs, and they've been linked to Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller, New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Doug Martin. The Jaguars have a ton of money available this year.

Fantasy Tip: The Jags have confidence in second-year player T.J. Yeldon as a three-down back, but they wouldn't mind pairing another runner with him in the backfield. If Jacksonville brings someone else in, that'll obviously hurt Yeldon's fantasy value and make him more of an RB3 or 4.

NFL | Chris Ivory has plenty of suitors

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 12:04:48 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory has interest from the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders, and the Miami Dolphins could also enter the mix.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory can be effective in between the tackles as a downhill runner when healthy, as he showed with the Jets, but his age and injury history should be concerning to fantasy owners. Wherever he lands next he'll likely split backfield duties, but Ivory can still have value as an RB3 in the right situation.
