The Jets’ expectation is for Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory to provide a formidable 1-2 punch to help reduce pressure on quarterback Geno Smith.

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Jets RB Chris Ivory suffered an ankle injury on his first carry.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

New York Post - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

Jets RB Bilal Powell exited the game with a shoulder injury.

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."

Fantasy Impact:

Powell led the way with nine carries but the Jets struggled to run the ball. If Goodson misses time, the bulk of the work will likely fall on Powell and Chris Ivory going forward.

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

Fantasy Impact:

Bilal Powell was also injured, but is expected to be OK. The Jets struggled to run the ball against Pittsburgh, but going forward Powell and Chris Ivory will likely get a bulk of the work with Goodson now out for the season.

New York Jets on Twitter - [Full Article]

The Jets have moved RB Mike Goodson to the active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

He injury his hamstring in practice on Friday but coach Rex Ryan downplayed the injury saying he wasn't overly concerned. He would likely have a limited role in the Jets game this week behind Bilal Powell.
