News From The Past 90 Days
Eagles to continue with RBBC in Week 6
Clement-Smallwood-Adams trifecta
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 11, 8:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Darren Sproles will be out for at least one more week -- he's missed the last four games with a hamstring injury -- but is expected to return soon, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. For now, it'll be the Clement-Smallwood-Adams trifecta. "We're very comfortable and confident with those three," Pederson said. "We've made it work so far this part of the season and we're going to continue to make it work." (NJ Media)

FFToday's Take: With Ajayi on the shelf it appears that Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood will get the bulk of the work against the Giants in Week 6 with Clement given the opportunity to be the lead back. Both are viable flex options that will exceed value if they find the endzone.


Injury Jay Ajayi out for the year, torn ACL
Placed in IR
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 8, 5:00 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles placed lead running back Jay Ajayi on injured reserve Monday, a major blow to an offense that has struggled to score points over the first five games of the season. Ajayi tore his ACL Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles are thin at running back with Ajayi (IR), Darren Sproles (hamstring) and Corey Clement (quad) all battling injuries. Wendall Smallwood and Josh Adams are the only true healthy running backs on the roster. Unless a free agent is signed, Smallwood should see a spike in usage moving forward.


Injury Sproles out, Ajayi good to go
Ajayi playing through fracture in back
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 28, 10:33 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Doug Pederson: Darren Sproles just isn’t ready yet. Jay Ajayi is good to go. The fracture in his back can be played through. Sounds bad but he’ll be OK. #Eagles (Jeff McLance on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles will be back to their usual three-man rotation of Ajayi, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood. It will be difficult to trust Ajayi given his injury, not to mention the Titans have yet to give up a touchdown to a running back.


Injury Ajayi, Sproles Out; Clement questionable
Clement new addition to injury report
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 21, 1:55 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles Injury Report for the Colts game: OUT: RB Jay Ajayi (back), RB Darren Sproles (hamstring). QUESTIONABLE: RB Corey Clement (quadricep), LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (groin), WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder), T Jason Peters (quadricep). RB Corey Clement (quad) is a new addition to the injury report. Must have injured himself during Friday’s practice. Left the locker room before media showed. #Eagles may have to make a roster move if Ajayi, Sproles and Clement are out. (Jeff McLance on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles are having issues at RB. Ajayi missed practice all week as did Darren Sproles but now Clement, who was inline for 15-18 touches this week, has popped up on the injury report with a quad issue. It appears Clement should be able to play this week but this new injury takes the shine off his fantasy upside.


Injury Darren Sproles out with hamstring injury
Moer ground game with Ajayi?
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 14, 2:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles Injury Report for the Bucs game: OUT: WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder), RB Darren Sproles (hamstring), QB Carson Wentz (knee) QUESTIONABLE: WR Shelton Gibson (knee) (Jeff McLance on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: One less cog in the wheel should help the fantasy prospects of Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement although it's difficult to expect Ajayi picking up much of the receiving work Sproles leaves behind. Wendall Smallwood should operate as the No.3 running back.


Injury Pederson on Ajayi: "We'll see him more"
Eagles RB used sparingly in first half
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 7, 1:00 pm

"Jay was nursing a little bit of a lower body (foot) injury for a couple weeks and I just wanted to make sure he as good and get him into the flow of the game ... he was the featured back in the second half. He did a nice job. It was encouraging to see not only going forward but his health coming to of the game was good. Moving forward, we’ll see him more." (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: It's nice to get some candor from the head coach and his words should feel comforting to Jay Ajayi owners. Ajayi haters on Twitter were predictable over-reacting to his lack of involvement in the first half against the Falcons and while Corey Clement and Darren Sproles are going to remain involved in the offense, Ajayi should have RB2 throughout value during the season as long as he remains healthy.
