Dolphins see uptick in run game production since trade of RB Jay Ajayi

Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald noted that since the Dolphins traded RB Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles they have improved in five offensive categories. One of which being rushing offense, where they jumped from 76.4 rushing yards per game with Ajayi to 89.7 rushing yards per game without him.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's not a huge improvement, but it's a statistical leap nonetheless. In the absence of Ajayi, Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake have split the workload and combined for an average of 16.33 carries and 88.66 rushing yards. They've only produced one touchdown on the ground, though.

This week, the Dolphins face a Patriots defense ranked fifth in our aFPA vs. RBs. It's a tough matchup for both Williams and Drake, but if you're choosing between the two, we have Williams ranked higher (No. 35 in standard and No. 38 in PPR).
