Summary

Jay Ajayi joined the Eagles in a rare midseason trade and played with renewed confidence after struggling early in the season with Miami. As a Dolphin, the 6'1", 221-pound juggernaut averaged just 3.4 yards per carry and 4.8 yards per reception. He failed to score a touchdown in seven starts. As an Eagle, Ajayi averaged 5.8 yards per carry, which would have been 2nd in the league to Alvin Kamara on a standalone basis. He also caught ten passes for 91 yards and scored twice. Ajayi enters this season as the nominal starter, but Doug Pederson will continue to use a committee approach at the position. By not re-signing LeGarrette Blount, the Eagles have handed the primary interior and short-yardage duties to Ajayi; roles he's well suited for playing behind an above-average offensive line. The committee structure caps Ajayi's upside, but in a league with few workhorses, he should deliver RB2 value in both standard and PPR-formats. (May 21)
