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.
