Though he hasn't yet found the end zone, Ajayi has been the workhorse in the playoffs, totaling 39 touches in the Eagles' two games. He'll likely see a big workload again in the Super Bowl as the Eagles look to control the ball and keep the Patriots' explosive offense off the field. Ajayi's involvement both on the ground and through the air suggests that he should be game-flow proof, and Leonard Fournette showed that New England is beatable on the ground. Add all that up and it should mean a solid if not outstanding fantasy day from Ajayi in the Super Bowl.

The Patriots were 16th against fantasy running backs this year, Ajayi should be the best of the Eagles backs in this game.
