Jay Ajayi

Jay Ajayi carries the ball just five times Sunday

by Mike Maher | Sun, Nov 26th 7:28pm EST

Jay Ajayi carried the ball five times for 26 yards and added one catch for seven yards in Sunday's win over the Bears. He also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact:

Ajayi nearly had a touchdown as well but was hit from behind while breaking a tackle and fumbled at the five yard line, which wide receiver Nelson Agholor picked up in the end zone for a touchdown. Six touches for Ajayi is not going to get it done for fantasy owners, but it looks like it might be difficult to get a larger share of touches as long as the Eagles continue to use a running back committee that features Blount as the starter and three other backs rotating into the game.

Expert Analysis

Since his arrival in Philadelphia, Ajayi has yet to receive more than nine touches in a game. While fantasy owners like the big-play ability and it's paid off with a 30-plus yard run in all three games with the Eagles, those types of plays are difficult to bank on. Facing a stout Seattle Seahawks run defense, Ajayi won't be a top-30 running back this week. For more running back analysis, including a DFS outlook, check out
