Corey Clement scored a touchdown in Week 6's game without Jay Ajayi, but Smallwood logged more snaps (44) and red-zone touches (six). Philadelphia's backfield will remain a timeshare, limiting both to flex consideration. Smallwood found the end zone in Week 3's game without Ajayi, so don't assume Clement is the superior play against a Panthers defense leaking 4.6 yards per carry.

Wendell Smallwood sees 19 touches on Thursday night

Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood, starting in place of the injured Jay Ajayi and the limited Corey Clement, rushed 18 times for 51 yards and caught one pass for no yards in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Smallwood got the start and the lion's share of the touches out of the Philadelphia backfield, but he was held to just 2.8 yards per carry on the night. With Ajayi out for the season due to a torn ACL, Smallwood will have a bigger role in the Philadelphia offense. However, once Clement is all the way back from his quadriceps injury, he will likely take over as the starter and take away from Smallwood's touches.
