Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: Explodes for 122 yards in Week 2 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (knee) rushed 28 times for 122 yards and brought in both of his targets for four yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Chargers.

Ajayi played the role of a true workhorse back, as Kenyan Drake was the only other running back to log a backfield touch, and a single one at that. Otherwise, Ajayi saw the second-highest rushing workload of his career, with only the 32 rushes he tallied in a Week 16 overtime victory over the Bills last season eclipsing Sunday's total number of totes. The 24-year-old is likely to be leaned on heavily this season as head coach Adam Gase tries to not overexpose the mistake-prone Jay Cutler, keeping Ajayi's fantasy prospects very high going forward. He'll look to put up a successful encore to his Week 2 effort when the Dolphins do battle with the Jets in Week 3.

Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: Good to go for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (knee) didn't receive a designation in advance of Sunday's road game against the Chargers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

A full practice participant all week, Ajayi will play through what head coach Adam Gase termed "some soreness" in his knee in the Dolphins' delayed season opener, per Alain Poupart of the team's official site. Nevertheless, Ajayi has a great chance to produce against a Chargers defense that gave 140 yards and one touchdown on the ground Monday in Denver.

Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: On injury report, but practices fully
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi was included on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday due to a knee issue, but he was a full participant in practice and is expected to play in Week 2 against the Chargers, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Dolphins may look to manage Ajayi's reps in practice this week to limit the strain on his knee, but he looks to be in no clear danger of suiting up Sunday. Ajayi should enter the season fresh after the Dolphins' Week 1 game against the Buccaneers was postponed due to the presence of Hurricane Irma in South Florida.

Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: Not playing Week 1 due to postponement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi won't suit up in Week 1 after the Dolphins' matchup with the Buccaneers was postponed with Hurricane Irma expected to make landfall in South Florida, Kevin Patra of reports.

The two teams are scheduled to make up the contest Nov. 19 in Week 11 of the regular season, meaning both the Dolphins and Buccaneers will play 16 consecutive weeks to conclude the campaign. Assuming health permits for the running back over the next week-plus, Ajayi will make his season debut Sept. 17 against the Chargers.

Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: Finds paydirt twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi took nine carries for 53 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Ajayi rumbled for 26 yards on his first carry, eluding the first two would-be tacklers before dragging the third and fourth defenders for extra yardage. He appeared to play every snap on Miami's first four drives, twice finding paydirt from two yards out. Even more encouraging, he worked ahead of Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake on passing downs, which often wasn't the case last season. The Dolphins seem to be preparing their star running back for a three-down role Week 1 against Tampa Bay.
