Bills have agreed to terms with RB Chris Ivory

ESPN - [Full Article]

Chris Ivory will sign a two-year deal with the Bills with a base value of $5.5 million and a maximum value of $6 million, a source confirmed to ESPN. Ivory will be guaranteed $3.25 million. NFL Network first reported Ivory’s compensation.

Fantasy Impact:

Since Ivory was released recently, he's able to sign with a team immediately. He'll likely serve as the backup to LeSean McCoy.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Ivory was brought in as an insurance policy in case Shady McCoy got hurt. The veteran can carry the load if needed. Now with McCoy having legal issues, Ivory could step in as the No. 1 back in Buffalo. Ivory had a 1,000-yard season with the Jets a couple seasons ago when he was the featured back. So he is capable of handling the job.

Fantasy Downside

Obviously, Ivory is the backup. If McCoy plays like expected, Ivory's touches will be limited. Ivory is also 30 years old so his career is winding down.

2018 Bottom Line

Ivory is a great pickup if you somehow end up with McCoy. That way you will have the Bills' primary ball-carrier. He is probably not even really worth a late-round draft pick unless you use the collar strategy with McCoy. Buffalo's offense will not be strong in 2018.
