New Orleans Saints running back Chris Ivory has been surprisingly productive over the last three games against the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals. He has scored two touchdowns in both games against the Cowboys and Bengals, and earned an average of 85 yards and an average of 15 touches per game in the last three games. He has essentially become Reggie Bush was previously deemed to be when he was drafted in 2006. Bush was expected to have this kind of rushing production, but he had evolved into more of a hybrid running back-wide receiver instead. Sean Payton endorses Ivory’s production and said he will continue to use him, even when Pierre Thomas returns. Looking forward, Ivory has a favorable schedule ahead of him. He will face the Baltimore Ravens, the Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He should become a RB1 and no worse than a high-end RB2, despite the running back committee.
