Summary

Jay Ajayi is an interesting prospect for 2017. On the one hand, his 1,272 yards and eight touchdowns were solid production considering a shaky offensive line and not always a great amount of pass production. On the other hand, he was very hit or miss. After being left behind as a punishment for the first game, Ajayi struggled to find his groove. Then starting in Week 6, Ajayi had games totalling 204, 214 and 11 yards as well as four touchdowns during those games. He would also reach 206 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16, but between Week 7 and Week 16, Ajayi went six weeks without reaching 100 yards on the ground, and had just one touchdown. The lack of consistency is a huge concern coming into 2017. Hopefully, a healthy offensive line - Mike Pouncey and Brandon Albert were frequently out last year - and Laremy Tunsil moving to left tackle will give Ajayi more consistent holes to work with and that should make a big difference.

Dolphins | Jay Ajayi to see a lot of work (Thu May 11, 08:27 AM) - Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi could see 22 to 25 carries per game this year, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'He needs to feel it out a little bit,' Gase said.

Our View: There's not much else behind him to challenge Ajayi, which is good for Fantasy GMs who have him, but last season kicked things off with minimal impact from the former Boise State runner as he was on the bench and playing behind Arian Foster. We'll see how he responds this year knowing that he's 'the man' from day one. Further, for all the 200 yard games he had, Ajayi had a few average games as well. Consistency is something we need to see from him this year.
