Jay Ajayi Player Overview

The Dolphins stud RB tore his right ACL in college (2011) — and has had some injury issues in the NFL causing him to miss 7 games in 2015, but none last year (he was a healthy Week 1 scratch). Miami has said they want to give Ajayi 350 carries in 2017 (consider that coach-speak hyperbole), the issue being whether or not he can handle a significant uptick in touches.
