| Chris Ivory was brought in to be the answer to Jacksonville's rushing attack but durability issues and ineffectiveness led to his lowest total touches since injuries limited him to six games in 2013. Jacksonville gave him the rock at least 15 times in only two of his eleven games played in 2016 and the addition of Leonard Fournette is telling of the team's confidence in Ivory moving forward. Ivory gets the job done when healthy so there is a chance he starts the year splitting carries with Fournette. However, it is more likely that Ivory serves as a caddie to Fournette and sees his touches per game dwindle into single digit territory. Unless an injury or off-the-field issue with Fournette occurs, Ivory is probably not worth owning in all but the deepest leagues.
|Bills, Chris Ivory agree on two-year deal|
Base value of $5.5 million

|Running back Chris Ivory has agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills on a two-year deal, the team announced Tuesday. The deal has a base value of $5.5 million and a maximum value of $6 million, a source confirmed to ESPN. Ivory, who turns 30 on March 22, will be guaranteed $3.25 million. NFL Network first reported his compensation. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Ivory will slide into the No.2 running back role behind LeSean Mccoy who's only missed 5 games in the last five years. Both Mike Tolbert and Travaris Cadet backed up McCoy last year but are free agents. Ivory will have some late-round flier appeal in re-draft and best-ball leagues.
|Chris Ivory visited Bills on Monday|
RB released by Jacksonville

|Back in the AFC East? Free agent RB Chris Ivory spent all day yesterday visiting with the #Bills, source says. Released days ago by the #Jaguars, the former #Jets star has considerable interest and will take a few visits. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Sounds like the Ivory's agent is in the ear of Rapoport trying to pump up his client. The Bills need a running back to help LeSean McCoy so the interest by Buffalo seems reasonable. Ivory isn't likely to find a starting job in the league but could be a valuable part of a committee.
|Jaguars release RB Chris Ivory|
$3.6 million saved against the salary cap

|The Jaguars are done with Chris Ivory.
The team on Friday released the veteran running back after two up-and-down seasons in Jacksonville, saving the team $3.6 million in salary-cap room, per OverTheCap.com. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: While Ivory worked as the backup running back behind Leonard Fournette, he fell out of favor toward the end of last season as T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant became preferred options. Ivory saw 17 carries in Week 15 but registered just one carry the remaining of the regular season and through the playoffs. Ivory will turn 30 on March 22nd.
