Report: Dolphins trading RB Jay Ajayi to Eagles

Armando Salguero - [Full Article]

Dolphins are trading Jay Ajayi to the Eagles for a fourth-round draft pick.

Related players: Damien Williams, Kenyan Drake, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a huge trade with massive fantasy implications. The Dolphins have been very poor on offense (second-fewest rushing yards per game and no rushing touchdowns on the year), but expect some type of backfield split between Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake. As it stands, Williams has 20 touches on the year compared to Drake's 13. Williams holds the edge in snaps, 82 to 45. As for the Eagles, the days of Ajayi getting 22 touches per week may be over with Blount and Smallwood involved. Ajayi's volume will likely take a hit, but his efficiency should increase as he'll now play in one of the best offenses in the league. Keep an eye out for our updated rest-of-season rankings, which will be released later today.
