Eagles' Jay Ajayi to take on larger role in Week 11
Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that running back Jay Ajayi is expected to take on a bigger role against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.
Reich praised Ajayi's ability to quickly grasp the playbook. "He's able to handle everything that we give him at this point", he told reports on Tuesday. It appears that the recently-acquired back has taken advantage of the team's Week 10 bye. That means that both LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement are likely to see fewer touches with Ajayi taking over as the team's lead back.
At a price of $6,900, Ajayi is projected for 8.8 FanDuel points on 11.3 carries, 52.0 rush yards and 0.41 rushing touchdowns on the road in Dallas.
