After toiling away for three seasons in a limited backup role with the New Orleans Saints, Ivory is now the presumed No. 1 tailback in the Jets’ new-look backfield. In 24 games played (eight starts) in a Saints uniform, Ivory averaged 5.1 yards per carry and notched three 100-yard games. The 6-foot, 222-pound Ivory is a powerful, violent straight-ahead runner with some sneaky speed. His longest career run is 56 yards. But with just three career receptions while playing in New Orleans’ high-octane passing attack, it’s a no-brainer that Ivory will do very little as a receiver. He never has carried the ball more than 137 times in a season, which raises durability concerns. While there is some slight risk involved with Ivory, he offers solid fantasy RB2 potential. Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell are expected to back him up.
