Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders handled the bulk of the backfield work for the second week in a row when he played 84 percent of the offensive snaps against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 24. Jay Ajayi played a total of nine offensive snaps with Jordan Howard out of the lineup.
Huddle Up: Sanders ran for 63 yards on 12 carries and caught three of his five targets for 23 yards but failed to find the end zone for a third straight week. It was much more promising than his last two outings, and he'll be a strong play against the Miami Dolphins this week with or without Howard back in the lineup.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi carried the ball six times for 16 yards in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: There was talk of a "big role" for Ajayi this week, but it didn't come to fruition. There's no reason to carry him on a roster until the Eagles show he's actually going to have a meaningful role on game day.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi could have a 'notable role' in Week 12 on Sunday, Nov. 24, especially if fellow RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) misses a second straight game, according to a team beat reporter.
Huddle Up: Ajayi didn't play in Week 11, but that was days after being signed off the street. Rookie Miles Sanders' turn as the Philly's lead back didn't net much success (47 yards on 13 total touches) in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, and if Howard does sit out, it sounds like Ajayi would handle most of the Eagles' carries with Sanders reverting back to his pass-catching, change-of-pace role. If Howard is indeed out -- and we likely know for sure until Sunday morning -- throw Ajayi in as a flex/RB2 if you're in late-season need at running back.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi is expected to make his season debut in Week 11's game against the New England Patriots, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Ajayi could see a handful of offensive snaps versus New England but does not possess much fantasy value this week because he is behind RBs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott on the depth chart.

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) signed an undisclosed contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: Although Ajayi could play in Week 11 in theory because he should have a good grasp on the playbook, he is almost certainly being added for depth purposes behind Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders and nothing more. Then again, Howard himself is questionable for the game with a stinger, so he could see a few snaps. Barring more injuries to the position group as a whole, however, it's unlikely Ajayi is worth adding in most fantasy leagues at this time.

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi is expected to re-sign with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, Nov. 15. Ajayi worked out for the team Friday morning, and a source said the two sides were deep in contract talks afterward.
Huddle Up: Darren Sproles is out of the picture with a quadriceps injury, but the Philly backfield has been set for most of the season with Jordan Howard and rookie Miles Sanders averaging a combined 25.2 touches per game. That leaves little room for Ajayi, who only figures to become a fantasy factor if Howard or Sanders were to miss time with an injury.

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) will visit the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Nov. 15, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Ajayi played well for the Eagles in 2017, but knee injuries took a toll on his production. If he does return to the Eagles, he won't have any fantasy appeal in a crowded backfield.

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) is working out for the Detroit Lions on Friday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on as Kerryon Johnson's knee injury/placement on IR has left the Lions' backfield an unstable mess.

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) is working out for the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has been training and preparing to sign with a team for a few weeks. He's definitely worth stashing in deeper leagues and would be a flex option in the right situation.
