Jay Ajayi placed on IR with torn ACL

Jay Ajayi (knee) has been placed on IR with a torn ACL according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Ajayi suffered the injury in Week 5 and is determined to be a torn ACL. Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood will benefit the most with Ajayi going on the IR and will be worth grabbing on the waiver wire this week in most fantasy leagues.

Jay Ajayi loses a costly fumble in Week 5 loss

Eagles running back Jay Ajayi rushed eight times for 29 yards and caught one pass for five yards in the team's Week 5 loss to the Vikings on Sunday. He also lost a costly fumble inside the red zone early in the second half.

Fantasy Impact

Ajayi left the game at one point due to a knee injury, but he was frustrated by his lack of usage after the game. The Eagles threw the ball 35 times against 17 rushes, and Ajayi thinks they should be running the ball more. Fantasy owners will probably agree, as he has just 184 yards on 45 attempts through five weeks.

Jay Ajayi questionable to return to Week 5

94 WIP Philadelphia is reporting Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is questionable to return to Week 5 with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

With Ajayi out, Smallwood, who had already scored a touchdown, will continue to draw the bulk of the running back touches in the Eagles' backfield. Ajayi is questionable to return.

Jay Ajayi rushes for 70 yards Sunday

Eagles running back Jay Ajayi rushed 15 times for 70 yards and caught three passes for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Ajayi played through a small fracture in his back and was effective when given the ball on Sunday, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. He did not get into the end zone but was the clear lead back with both Corey Clement and Darren Sproles out with injuries of their own. He has a tough matchup against the Vikings in Week 5 that will hurt his fantasy value.

Jay Ajayi removed from injury report

Jay Ajayi has been removed from the Eagles' injury report ahead of their Week 4 matchup against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Ajayi is said to be dealing with a back injury that is unlikely to go away during the season. The fracture in his back is something he'll continue to play through and have to tolerate. Head coach Doug Pederson indicated that he wanted to use Ajayi more heavily earlier in the season prior to the injury, but it's not clear what role he'll play now that he's dealing with the back ailment. As such, he's hard to trust in his first game back, but he also limits the upside of fellow RBs Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood.
