The New York Jets will use RBs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory as a tandem this upcoming season and have them split carries. RB Bilal Powell will be the team's No. 3 running back.

The New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson (Titans) to a two-year deal Wednesday, April 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson has lost a lot in recent seasons, and he's, at best, a weak RB3 for your fantasy squad. Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will spell Johnson frequently, and Ivory figures to be the short-yardage, goal-line back. With Marty Mornhinweg as the offensive coordinator, Johnson could be used frequently out of the backfield as a pass catcher, making him more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was seen on the side working with trainers in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Fantasy Tip: Ivory's injury looks serious enough to keep him out of action this weekend against the Miami Dolphins, so get him out of your lineups. Bilal Powell would become the main runner again and is an RB2 this weekend.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory was leaned upon heavily in the Week 7 overtime victory against the New England Patriots, posting a career-high 34 carries for 104 yards. RB Bilal Powell, who had been the primary ball carrier, managed just three touches. "Bilal only carried three times but Ivory had the hot hand and we fed him," head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 20. "We rode Ivory a little more than normal, but it was a good game."
Fantasy Tip: If Ivory can duplicate this type of production, he would be a solid RB2 or flex play in all fantasy formats. However, don't discount Powell just yet, as he showed earlier this season while Ivory was sidelined, that he could carry the mail and do it well. Keep him reserved, but don't drop him just yet.

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as probable for Week 7.
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 16:05:13 -0700
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 17.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 14:03:50 -0700
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Powell insisted he was fine when he left the Week 6 game temporarily, and it looks like he will be. Continue to view Powell as a No. 3 fantasy running back.
Tue, 15 Oct 2013 13:36:21 -0700
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is expected to have a bigger role in the backfield with RB Mike Goodson (knee) now out for the season. Ivory had only four carries in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he has 115 yards on 34 carries this season. "It hasn't been tough yet," Ivory said. "I don't feel like I'm sitting back waiting on my time. I just feel like we could run the ball more. We're not doing that, but I think it will get better."
Fantasy Tip: Ivory should now be a waiver wire target in deeper leagues for those either hoping to handcuff Bilal Powell or build running back depth.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (shoulder) insisted Sunday, Oct. 13, that he is not injured after leaving the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers for what was reported as a shoulder injury. "I just took a little hit, came out and took a breather," Powell said. "Came in and everything is good."
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 13:20:21 -0700
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (shoulder), WR Clyde Gates (shoulder) and RB Mike Goodson (knee) exited the Week 6 game with injuries.
