Pederson: RB Jay Ajayi's 'touches are going up every week'

In his first three games with the Eagles, Ajayi averaged 6.7 carries per game and played 25 percent of the time. In the last two games, he has averaged 12 carries and played 45 percent.

“His production and his touches are going up each week,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday. “He’s really fit in well. Still learning the protection aspect of it and some of the routes that we do with the backs, but [I] really feel like he’s come a long way in understanding our offense.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Ajayi led the Eagles in carries last week (15), the most he's had since being traded. The Giants are a plus matchup too, as they’ve allowed 4.44 yards per carry and 244 receiving yards to opposing running backs in the last four weeks. Consider Ajayi a viable FLEX option with the normal Eagles RBBC risk.
