Beat: Jets will use CJ?K and Chris Ivory in 'formidable 1-2 punch'
Thursday, April 17, 2014, 10:21am
Ivory and Bilal Powell had a nearly 50-50 split in carries last season, so it’s conceivable that Johnson could see about a 35%-40% decline in carries if the Jets stick to that formula. Johnson also provides insurance if Ivory, who has durability concerns, misses time.
A 35% to 40% decline would put Johnson in the 167-181 carry range, though we'd guess that he'll get at least 190 to 210 carries in the Jets' run-heavy offense. (Bilal Powell rushed the ball 176 times in 2013.) The Jets have averaged 493.5 carries over the past two seasons, so it's conceivable that Ivory and Johnson could both reach around 200 carries, provided they both stay healthy. Assuming 240 total touches for Johnson (200 carries, 40 catches) at his 2012-2013 FP/touch rate (.609), he would score around 146 fantasy points, or RB20 numbers.

Asked if it's a high or low ankle sprain, he said "both." Ivory did play through the injury but Bilal Powell could be a factor going forward if Ivory can't play or is limited in any way.

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.

Powell did speak to reporters, and insisted he is not injured.
"I just took a little hit, came out and took a breather," Powell said. "Came in and everything is good."

MRI shows that I tore my MCL and ACL yesterday. Not too happy right now but everything happens for a reason.
