Joe McKnight Fantasy News
Thursday, May 23, 2013, 12:44pm
Chris Ivory, who averaged an eye-opening 5.1 yards per carry in limited snaps over three seasons with New Orleans, is sitting even prettier in the fight to be the Jets’ top backfield option now that newly acquired Mike Goodson’s future with the team is up in the air after his arrest last week on drugs and weapons charges.
Ivory’s only competition for snaps with Goodson out are Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight, and new general manager John Idzik seemingly has spent much of the offseason trying to write McKnight’s ticket off the roster.
The article also describes Ivory making a move off of a swing pass, which is good news for his potential upside heading into 2013. The Saints didn't use him at all in the passing game, but if he can show playmaking ability and decent hands, he may be a three-down back for the Jets. Right now, we're projecting him as a two-down back.

Cumberland will draw another start at tight end with Keller likely to be inactive, and Hill could miss the remainder of the season with a strained LCL injury. As for the Titans, Johnson returned to practice on Friday and is a full go as his ankle isn’t a concern. The Jets offer Johnson a good matchup and he should post solid fantasy production.
