2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the more polarizing players in fantasy last season, Jay Ajayi rushed for 408 yards and one rushing touchdown in seven games for the Eagles after joining the team midseason via trade with the Dolphins. Although limited to just 70 carries in a crowded backfield that included the now departed LeGarrette Blount, Ajayi did make the most of his time with the Eagles, posting an impressive 5.8 yard per carry average.

Now that Blount has moved on to the Lions and the Eagles have yet to add another bruising RB to the backfield, Ajayi looks poised to take over as the primary first and second down back for an Eagles team that finished third last season in total points scored.

The main knock against Ajayi and the reason why he is not considered a second or third round pick in most experts' eyes is the fact that head coach Doug Pederson prefers to use multiple RBs out of the backfield. Corey Clement looked impressive at times last season, and veteran Darren Sproles looks to return to the team as the primary receiving down option.

The lack of clear touches will make many owners shy away from Ajayi in drafts this summer. However, should he continue to fall in ADP, Ajayi could end up being a great value, especially in standard scoring formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Final season for Darren Sproles
Eagles RB will hang it up after 2018
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 15, 4:10 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles made it clear in free agency and the draft that they see Darren Sproles playing a key role in their rushing attack this season. Sproles, however, isn't planning to extend his career past 2018. The 35-year-old running back announced in a blog post he plans to play just "one more year." Sproles wrote that he planned on 2017 being his final NFL season before suffering a torn ACL in Week 3. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Sproles is coming off an ACL injury and set to be in a rotation with Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement. He'll have sporadic Flex value in PPR leagues and worthy of a late-round flier in your draft. Sproles is looking to move into fifth all-time in all-purpose yards.


Eagles ready to make Ajayi a lead back
Tighter RB rotation could make Ajayi an easy RB2 in 2018
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 26, 8:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Actions speak louder than words, but when it comes to the Eagles' running back situations, the team is both talking and acting like Jay Ajayi is going to be the top back. Although they ran a running back by committee last season, the team appears ready to slightly abandon that philosophy next season. Ajayi was with the first-team offense for almost all of their snaps during the offseason, except for the occasional snap that went to second-year running back Corey Clement. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles split 395 carries last season between six running backs with LeGarrette Blount (173) getting a 44% share. With Blount out of mix it's safe assume a tighter rotation in the backfield with Ajayi, Clement and Darren Sproles getting the majority of work. In this scenario, 200-plus carries seems like a good bet for Ajayi. Last season, 16 of the 18 RBs with 200+ carries finished as a fantasy RB2 in standard scoring leagues based on fantasy points per game.
