Jets Beat: Expect Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley to split carries

Saturday, April 25, 2015, 12:04pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Regarding the Jets running game, expect Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley to share the bulk of the load. One of those two might get 20 to 30 carries more than the other guy, but it won't be a huge gap, provided both backs stay healthy all season.

Fantasy Impact:

With Chris Johnson out of the way, it looked like Ivory might be one of the more attractive middle round sleepers at his position, but the team’s decision to sign Stevan Ridley has thrown his status up in the air. He’s a career 4.7 YPC runner, and has averaged 4.4 YPC in two seasons with the Jets. It would have made more sense if the Jets had paired Ivory with a speed back/receiving threat like C.J. Spiller, but the arrival of Ridley is a concern. If the two players do indeed split carries, neither will carry much reliable fantasy value.

Scouting Report

Week 17: Johnson vs Dolphins

Chris Johnson split the carries last week with Chris Ivory but was on the field for more snaps (25 to 18). Bilal Powell also was on the field for 18 snaps. Johnson had a big game last time out against Miami, rushing for 105 yards, his only 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Miami is 21st in aFPA to running backs, but the fact that the carries and snaps are split limits all the Jets backs fantasy impact. Johnson should not be in your starting lineup this week unless Ivory ends up not playing. He is nursing a bad hamstring. At the moment, Ivory is the better choice for Week 17.
