Dolphins send Ajayi to Eagles for draft pick

Posted November 02, 2017

There's some time left before the NFL trade deadline at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday afternoon, but it's safe to say one of the most notable moves from a fantasy football perspective will be the Miami Dolphins sending running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round pick. He gained just 23 yards on 13 carries, despite on season-long 21-yard rush on his first attempt of the game.

We're guessing the timing wasn't a coincidence.

The Dolphins have struggled on offense all season long, ranking dead last in both total yards (252.4 yards per game) and scoring (13.1 points per game). "That's on the running back".

The team's workload at the position has come from LeGarrett Blount, who has had a fine season. Although the Eagles current starting running back, LeGarrette Blount has a few more yards than him, the addition of Ajayi will be huge for the Eagles offense.

Ajayi has rushed for 1,924 yards and nine touchdowns in 31 career games for Miami since being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 draft out of Boise State.

In a surprise move, the Fins dumped Ajayi in favor of a fourth-round pick, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald. Drake has 43 carries and 12 catches over his two National Football League seasons, but he may now be the proverbial No. 1 on the depth chart.
