|The Jets used a fourth-round pick in 2010 to acquire the Louisville product and he will get his first chance to earn extended playing time this season after sitting behind Shonn Greene, LaDainian Tomlinson and Joe McKnight as a rookie. Powell touched the rock in just two games last season, gaining 21 yards on 13 carries and showing little promise as an NFL back. However, Greene has failed to impress and McKnight is better suited running outside the tackles. There is a decent chance that Powell will sit third on the depth chart coming out of training camp but if Greene were to go down or struggle, Powell just might leapfrog McKnight to earn a more significant role.
| Ivory played through lower-body injury in Week 7 -- Mon Oct 26 4:25 pm --|
|New York Jets RB Chris Ivory injured his hamstring against the New England Patriots in a Week 7 30-23 loss. Ivory doesn't believe the injury will force him to miss future game time.
"I felt a little tightness in my hamstring the first play," Ivory said. "I didn't have the confidence in getting around the edge. I'm fine. I'm ready to go for next week." (Bleacher Report)|
FF Today's Take: For what it is worth, HC Todd Bowles said his main runner was dealing with tightness in his quad. Injuries are part of the risk that comes along with owning Ivory, who ranks sixth in the league in rushing with 501 yards despite he's missed a full game and the Jets have had their bye week. Zac Stacy appears to be the next man up for now as Bilal Powell (ankle) and Stevan Ridley (knee) were inactive for Week 7. Stacy was already stealing some passing-down work from Ivory in Powell's absence, so he is certainly worth a speculative add in most leagues.
| Decker, Ivory will be gametime decisions -- Fri Sep 25 12:23 pm --|
Both listed as Questionable
|Jets RB Chris Ivory (quad), WR Eric Decker (knee) & CB Darrelle Revis will be game-time decisions vs Eagles. All are questionable. (Manish Mehta on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Both Ivory and Decker missed practice time this week. If Decker sits Brandon Marshall will move into top ten consideration at the WR position and should be a target magnet against the Eagles. Ivory owners should be looking for other options even if he's active on Sunday. Bilal Powell would get a boost if Ivory sits.
