Jay Ajayi Done For the Year

Oct 8, 2018

Jay Ajayi Eagles
.
Philadelphia’s title defense took another blow as Jay Ajayi landed on the IR with a torn ACL. With LeGarrette Blount in Detroit, the Eagles suddenly find themselves without either of the punishing backs that lead them to the promised land.
.
The workload will likely move to Wendell Smallwood in the near-term and eventually a committee with Corey Clement and Darren Sproles if and when the Eagles get back to full strength at running back.
.
The Eagle back most attractive to own for the balance of the year should be Clement, with Smallwood being a close second. They likely fall into the RB3 or RB4 territory and are best used in bye weeks as an RB2/flex option.
.
It may be best to evaluate your roster and see if you can make a move to bolster your running back situation if you were relying on Ajayi.
.
Some non-Eagle backs to look at on the Waiver Wire. Obviously some of the names are only available in smaller leagues.

Matt Breida

Nyheim Hines
Mike Davis
