|Ivory signed a two-year $5.5 million deal with the Bills over the offseason after two uneventful seasons with the Jaguars. The former Jet and Saint averaged a paltry 3.6 yards per carry in limited action with Jacksonville and became expendable when the Jags drafted Leonard Fournette last season.
At age 30, Ivory is clearly past his prime and was brought in by Buffalo to be the backup running back behind LeSean McCoy. An aging backup for another aging running back on a bad team is not an attractive target in any fantasy draft format. However, should McCoy miss time or get released for his pending domestic violence accusations and Ivory receives 200-plus touches, he would enter the discussion as a low-end No.2 or flex in 12-team leagues.
| LeSean McCoy expects to play in Week 4|

|LeSean McCoy says “I’m playing” Sunday vs. the Packers.
McCoy said Wednesday was the first time he’s been able to run full speed since his injury. “But cutting was a minor setback,” he adds. (Mike Rodak on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: McCoy (ribs) will likely be classified as "limited" in practice Wednesday as he was wearing a non-contact jersey. In his absence last week, Chris Ivory touched the ball 23 times against the Vikings. McCoy will be a Flex option against the Packers in Week 3.
| LeSean McCoy has cracked rib cartilage|
Questionable for Week 3

|Bills' RB LeSean McCoy has cracked rib cartilage, leaving him questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota against the Vikings, per source. McCoy should not miss more than one game, if that. McCoy has had this injury before, and it is not expected to sideline him very long. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)|
FFToday's Take: It is going from bad to worse for the Bills, although this doesn't sound like a long-term problem. Making matters worse is the fact Buffalo has to face Minnesota next week. Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy will likely form an uninspiring committee in a brutal matchup in Week 3 versus the Vikings if McCoy sits. Even if McCoy goes, he's likely no better than a flex option.
