RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

We don't blame anyone who wasn't impressed by Ajayi's first season. His YPC was ordinary and he only caught seven passes. Initially, the Dolphins appeared to make an investment in Ajayi in the offseason, even if it was more indirect than anything. They let Lamar Miller go and they didn't make running back a priority in the draft, though they did add Kenyan Drake from Alabama (third round). The team's addition of Arian Foster, however, gives Ajayi some serious competition, though Foster's health is a concern since he is coming off an Achilles' injury. Thus, both Drake, who had been a contender to get third-down and pass-catching work immediately, and Ajayi -- who was in line to see the bulk of the work on first and second down -- could both lose touches (and fantasy value) thanks to the presence of Foster. Coach Adam Gase went out of his way to praise Ajayi during May's minicamp, saying Ajayi had "separated himself" from the other backs, but the Foster signing suggests otherwise. While it's not uncommon to see a runner take a leap in his second season, and Ajayi has that look to him, he now faces a training camp battle with a big name running back, who has proven productive when healthy.

2015

Ajayi had a legitimate case for being the third back taken in this year's draft after Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon, but concerns about a degenerative knee condition arose at the Combine, dropping him all the way to the fifth round. Ajayi has good size and adequate speed, but it's his impressive elusiveness and agility that really stood out at Boise State, allowing him to work his way through traffic and make people miss in the open field. He also possesses a strong burst through the hole and keeps his pad level low, allowing him to regularly pick up extra yards after contact. Combined with his pass-catching ability, Ajayi profiles as a three-down back, but his regular season NFL debut won't come until midseason, given that the rookie landed on the Dolphins' short-term IR list.
