ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Eagles RB Jordan Howard will return to action for Week 17. With that, the team is releasing RB Jay Ajayi. Miles Sanders has delivered big production as the feature back with Howard out. He'll likely lose some playing time and touches to Howard, but we'd also bet on the rookie continuing to lead Philly's backfield committee. Boston Scott also becomes a shakier bet for touches in Week 17.
The Eagles have ruled RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That makes Miles Sanders a solid starter across fantasy football formats -- though he could be a player to avoid in DFS at high ownership rates. Jay Ajayi carries 6 times to Sanders' 12 in last week's loss to the Seahawks and is a deep option for non-PPR leagues as well.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi are all active. Sanders is fully expected to serve as the lead back and is a nice RB2 vs. a New England defense that’s been gashed for 5.3 yards per carry by RBs over the past 5 weeks.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) will miss today's game against the Patriots, according to multiple reports. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jay Ajayi is expected to be active and get touches, though Miles Sanders and Boston Scott "will carry the load." Sanders makes for a solid volume play in fantasy football lineups, especially in full PPR formats.
The Eagles are set to sign RB Jay Ajayi, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Jordan Howard is dealing with a stinger and is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Patriots. Ajayi has been unemployed all season but spent part of 2017 and all of 2018 with Philadelphia. He's worth adding if you have a roster spot to play with, but he still seems like a long shot for 2019 fantasy value.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi suffered an ACL tear in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings and will miss the rest of the season. That takes the carry leader out of a backfield that has started slowly. Healthy returns by Corey Clement and Darren Sproles wold help absorb touches, but Wendell Smallwood has als taken advantage of recent injuries to others to look like a player who will continue to deserve work. We’ll see hit the touches get distributed as the remaining group get healthy. The one thing we’ve been able to count on so far has been HC Doug Pederson spreading the work around. Clement, Sproles and Smallwood are all worth owning to varying degrees right now
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He’s set to play through a “small fracture” in his back. Consider him a risk/reward RB2 for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi told the media Thursday that he has a "small fracture" in his back. He's set to play through it, though, explaining that "it's just a matter of pain tolerance." It's obviously an uneasy situation and adds risk to Ajayi's weekly fantasy outlook. We'll be keeping a close eye on him in this weekend's game against the Titans. He's a risky RB2 for that one.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) put in a full practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Titans. Ajayi will be a fine RB2 for that one. Tennessee is allowing 4.7 yards per carry to RBs.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. We'll continue to monitor his status, but fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him playing this weekend. RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) also missed practice on Wednesday. With those guys sidelined last week, RB Corey Clement played 55% of the offensive snaps and handled 19 touches. RB Wendell Smallwood played 35% of the snaps and totaled 13 touches.
Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts. Neither guy practiced all week, so consider both questionable for Week 4.
Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. Both guys are now looking extremely iffy for this weekend's game against the Colts. That'd leave Philly with RBs Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams. Clement would be in the RB2 mix in that case. Check back tomorrow for another update on the situation.
Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Doug Pederson labeled Ajayi "day to day" prior to practice, so it sounds like he has a shot to play against the Colts this weekend. We'll have another update tomorrow. Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and rookie Josh Adams and Philly's healthy RBs right now.
