2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The sophomore season for running back Jay Ajayi was one of the more bizarre storylines of the 2016 season, with the Dolphins doing everything in their power to not play the former Boise State Bronco. The Miami front office tried unsuccessfully to bring in C.J. Anderson from Denver, and then settled on an aging Arian Foster to start the season. Instead of using Ajayi as a backup in Week 1 against the Seahawks, the Dolphins front office deactivated the second-year player, citing attitude issues as the reason for the move.

A career-ending injury to Foster forced the staff to give Ajayi the start Week 5 against the Titans. Although the former fifth round pick struggled with only 42 yards on 13 carries, he did manage to find the end zone and post double-digit fantasy points. Ajayi would then follow with consecutive 200-yard performances against Pittsburgh and Buffalo, before posting 111 yards and a touchdown at home against the Jets Week 9.

Ajayi enters 2017 as the clear lead back for an offense that finished 2016 as the 9th best rushing attack in the league. He is a lock for 250 carries, assuming that he can stay healthy and does not lose the favor of the coaching staff. The health of center Mike Pouncey and the Dolphins offensive line is critical to the success of the rushing game - all but one of Ajayi's big games occurred when the O-line was active.

On a negative note, Ajayi's fantasy production was not consistent in 2016, with 57% of his yardage coming in a quarter of his games. Although he delivered two 27-point performances and a whopping 32.7 points against the Steelers Week 6, he failed to post double-digit fantasy points in nine of his 16 games.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jay Ajayi practices fully Wednesday
Eagles release initial injury report ahead of SB
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Jan 24, 5:40 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles released an initial injury report as they started practice in preparation for Super Bowl. This injury repot as an estimation by the Eagles public relations staff. Full Participant in Practice: RB Jay Ajayi (ankle) - Ajayi is fine, just listed as a precaution. (247Sports.com)

FFToday's Take: It doesn't look like Jay Ajayi's ankle will be an issue after the Eagles running back took part in practice Wednesday. He had missed practice time last week prior to rumbling for 99 total yards in the Eagles' NFC Championship win last Sunday. Barring an unforeseen setback, Philadelphia will continue to employ an effective one-two punch on the ground consisting of Ajayi and LeGarette Blount.


Injury Jay Ajayi misses practice Wednesday
No injury being reported
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 3, 11:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles will not take any chances with Jay Ajayi this week, as head coach Doug Pederson said the No. 1 running back will sit out of practice Wednesday. The Eagles will give Ajayi more rest this week, especially with a full-padded practice on the way. Pederson insists Ajayi doesn't have an injury. "(He's dealing with) nothing," Pederson said. "As you know with his history he's had the knee. Just rest on that knee is all." (247sports.com)

FFToday's Take: Jay Ajayi's rest is precautionary at this point. He should be ready as Philly's lead back when the team begins its post season play in the Divisional Round. His fantasy value, however, remains limited. The former Dolphin has only one rushing touchdown on the season and will continue split time with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement.
