Jay Ajayi’s Dreadful Inconsistency Continues, Fantasy Bench Fodder

Through five-weeks, it’s clear: Eagles RB Jay Ajayi has been one of our early 2018 whiffs. Sunday’s contest versus the Vikings was the low point, as Ajayi rushed eight times for 29 yards, added a five-yard reception, and fumbled at the goalline. Most concerningly, Ajayi has failed to impress even with Corey Clement and Darren Sproles absent. Instead, in Doug Pederson’s committee-obsessed system, Ajayi has been locked into a timeshare with *PUKE* Wendell Smallwood, who outgained Ajayi 71-34, and logged all RB receiving work. He’s falling into desperate FLEX territory. 

On the year, Ajayi’s hit double-digit half-PPR points just once and failed to top 81 yards. Much of his value is derived from GL usage, but Pederson’s been completely unpredictable with who he uses at the stripe, and still remains pass-heavy in this area.

Moreover, Ajayi is also dealing with a back fracture and apparently now a knee injury. Unable to stay healthy on these limited touches, Ajayi’s usage seems highly unlikely to suddenly spike now. He still drips in high-TD upside each week, but with sputtering usage and yardage totals, Ajayi’s ceiling and floor have both proven far lower than we had hoped. He will plummet down The Wolf’s next Season Long Big Board.
