Ivory got off to a quick start, rushing for 20 yards on his first three carries on the team's opening drive. Though, he quieted down after that, finishing with just 34 rushing yards on seven carries in the first half.
Ivory wasn't making much noise in the second half either until he bullied his way in for a 15-yard score with 8:58 remaining, which sealed the win for New York. Ivory broke at least four tackles in what turned into a great individual effort, which came two plays after Geno Smith extended the drive with a 32-yard scramble on 3rd-and-5.
All three of Ivory's touchdowns have come in the last five games, and it's his highest season total since recording five rushing touchdowns as a rookie in 2010 with the Saints. The Jets are back in action Week 15 at Carolina.
They are linemen
There was some concern last week
Ivory might have gotten more work last week had the Jets' offense been more productive in a 23-3 loss. Ivory is surely hoping for more work Week 14 vs. Oakland.
Running backs have had decent success against the Raiders. In the the last 10 games against Oakland, running backs are averaging 98.1 rushing yards, 38 receiving yards and 18.5 Fantasy points per week. Dallas running backs torched Oakland for 145 rushing yards and three touchdowns Week 13.
Since Week 7, Ivory is averaging 4.8 yards per carry in his last six games. It's just that he's had 12 or less carries in three of those games -- all blowout losses. Ivory could be a really good Fantasy option Week 14, if the Jets can hang with the Raiders. Or he could be a disappointing option, if the Jets get blown out again.
It's probably safest to consider Ivory a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy running back or flex option Week 14.
Ivory led the team with 61 yards on 12 rushing attempts, with a long carry of 32 yards. He added one catch for 12 yards, the only time he was targeted in the passing game.
Ivory rushed the ball just nine times last week thanks to his injury, so it was certainly good to see him able to handle a larger role. He will try to get going in Week 14 against the Raiders.
