Mike Goodson Fantasy News
Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 10:11am
Mike Goodson’s absence should create a bigger role for Jets RB Chris Ivory, who had just four carries Sunday. Ivory, who came to the Jets in a trade from New Orleans, said he is not frustrated by his limited role, but hopes the Jets will run more. Ivory has 115 yards on 34 carries this year.
The plan all along for Ivory was for him to get a lot of work, but he couldn't stay on the field in camp and once the season started, and lost the job to Bilal Powell, who has played pretty well at times. With Goodson now done for the year, Ivory has a chance to play a much bigger role. Given the team traded for him, they likely still want him to be more involved. He may be worth stashing on your roster to see how this plays out over the next couple of weeks.

Coach Rex Ryan was non-committal on whether RB Mike Goodson would play, noting that he's not in football shape. Chances are, Goodson will have a small role, perhaps spot duty at running back and kickoff returner -- an area that could use a spark. With Chris Ivory still recovering from a hamstring injury, the Jets could use another pair of legs to help Bilal Powell in the backfield.

Goodson has been suspended since Aug. 31 for a violation of the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. The suspension stemmed from an incident in May when Goodson and another man were found in an SUV on Route 80 in possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets. Goodson was intoxicated and transported to the hospital.

Green was a third-round pick in 2011, but tore his ACL that season and averaged just 3.4 yards per carry for Green Bay last season. With Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin joining the Packers in this year’s draft, Green wound up getting pushed off the depth chart.
With the Jets, he'll like be behind Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell, displacing Khalil Bell, according to the story. Mike Goodson is suspended for the first four games of the season and his return could spell the end of Green’s time with the Jets if he doesn’t make a strong early impression on the coaching staff.

Mike Goodson won't count on the 53-man roster during his four-game suspension. Who is the third-down back until Goodson returns? Bilal Powell did it last season, but he's had a couple of drops and pass-protection issues. Keep an eye on former Jets RB/KR Leon Washington; he's on the bubble in New England.
Mike Goodson suspended four games

But don't expect to see Goodson on the field any time soon.
The Jets, in announcing Goodson's return Monday night, also announced that Goodson will be suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

The Jets current running-back situation isn't good. Chris Ivory (hamstring) still hasn't practiced, Mike Goodson isn't in camp (no one is saying when or if he'll show up) and Joe McKnight seems to develop a daily ailment, leaving Bilal Powell and John Griffin. Actually, Griffin has demonstrated some cut-back ability, but they'll need the big dogs to make this running game go.
Jets believe Chris Ivory could be "a top-10 back"
Monday, July 22, 2013, 7:10pm
For the first time since 1994, the Jets are entering a season without a 1,000-yard rusher on the roster. Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell will battle for playing time. The Jets think Ivory could be a top-10 back if he stays healthy.
We agree. Like Michael Turner, Lamont Jordan and Chester Taylor before him, the 25-year-old Ivory is one of those RBs that the fantasy community has been hoping would get an opportunity to start, and now he'll get his chance. He was limited to 27 games in four college seasons due to injury, and was signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He has averaged 5.1 YPC in his career, though he has struggled with injuries in the NFL as well. In his rookie season, due to injuries to Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas, Ivory got a few starts and had some success. In 13 career games where he has received at least 10 touches, he's averaged 78 total yards, 0.38 TD and an impressive 5.2 YPC. That production equates to #16 RB-type numbers. New Orleans has not thrown the ball his way very often -- he has just three catches in his career -- but he did score on a 76-yard swing pass in preseason of his rookie year so he has some pass-catching ability. Mike Goodson is pretty good in the passing game, so we're expecting Ivory to be a two-down back in New York, which will limit his upside. If he starts catching passes, watch out.
Key to Jets could be Chris Ivory

The concern with Ivory is that he's never done it for a full season, and that's nothing to take lightly at the running-back position.
While the Jets need Ivory to step up, and it seems like he'll be given a chance, there are some other experienced backs on the team as well: Mike Goodson, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight. Ivory has certainly shown flashes, but has also struggled with injuries. We rank Ivory 19th among RBs with an ADP of the 6th round. The team is hoping Ivory can produce as an RB1, but if he can't, it could turn into a committee situation.
