Jets' Chris Ivory says he is a 3-down RB

Ignore the fact that Jets running back Chris Ivory @ivory_29 has three receptions in 24 career games. He says he can be everything the Jets want and more.
"It's not a challenge," Ivory said of being a dual-threat running back. "I know I'm capable of it. Once I'm healthy, I know all those things will fall in place ... and everybody will see the three-down back that I am."
However, Ivory isn't healthy right now. He has been sidelined for most of the past week due to a hamstring injury. The Jets hope he will return soon.

Fantasy Analysis:

Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg likes to use the running back as a receiver in his West Coast offense. The Jets have players who are natural fits for that role, but they are Mike Goodson and Joe McKnight, not Ivory. There are also running backs on this roster who are better blockers than Ivory. Ivory may be given a shot at being an every-down player, which would cause his fantasy value to take off, but he has a lot of improvements to make if he wants to get there. Ivory is a low-end RB2 right now.
