Analysis: Ajayi had a huge game after rushing for 139 yards with an average of 2.9 per carry without a TD in his previous three games combined. The Dolphins host the Jets next week, and against New York in Week 3, Ajayi ran for a grand total of 16 yards on 11 attempts.

Analysis: Ajayi has 139 rushing yards in three weeks since gaining 122 in the opener.

Analysis: Ajayi was hardly a factor, mostly because the Dolphins hardly had a the ball. Their offense is a mess at the moment, so Ajayi's fantasy worthiness is a bit suspect.
Sep. 27, 2017 10:06 AM PT11:06 AM MT12:06 PM CT1:06 PM ET17:06 GMT1:06 10:06 AM MST12:06 PM EST12:06 PM CT21:06 UAE13:06 ETNaN:� - Ajayi (knee) did not practice Wednesday, but coach Adam Gase said he will play Sunday against the Saints.
Analysis: Ajayi also missed most of practice last week to rest his balky knee, and it is believed the same is happening this week just as a precaution. However, the fact that he is having to miss so much practice time and ran for just 16 yards last week has to be concerning to his fantasy owners.
Sep. 24, 2017 12:55 PM PT1:55 PM MT2:55 PM CT3:55 PM ET19:55 GMT3:55 12:55 PM MST2:55 PM EST2:55 PM CT23:55 UAE15:55 ETNaN:� - Ajayi ran for 16 yards on 11 carries Sunday in the Miami Dolphins' 20-6 loss to the New York Jets. He added two receptions for nine yards.
Analysis: A major step back after rushing for 122 in their season opener.
Sep. 20, 2017 3:42 PM PT4:42 PM MT5:42 PM CT6:42 PM ET22:42 GMT6:42 3:42 PM MST5:42 PM EST5:42 PM CT2:42 UAE (+1)18:42 ETNaN:� - Ajayi returned to practice Friday after missing the previous two days due to a lingering knee issue, but coach Adam Gase has previously said it's nothing serious.
Analysis: We believe the Dolphins were just taking in easy with Ajayi, who has been dealing with some soreness. He's fully expected to play in Week 3.
Sep. 17, 2017 4:11 PM PT5:11 PM MT6:11 PM CT7:11 PM ET23:11 GMT7:11 4:11 PM MST6:11 PM EST6:11 PM CT3:11 UAE (+1)19:11 ETNaN:� - Jay Ajayi ran for 122 yards on 28 carries Sunday in the Miami Dolphins' 19-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He added two receptions for four yards.
Analysis: Ajayi ran hard and often in an excellent season debut that had to please his owners even if he didn't find the end zone. Averaging more than 21 carries over his last 12 games dating back to last season, he should be locked in as an every-week RB1 as the featured player in the Dolphins' offense.
Sep. 14, 2017 12:34 PM PT1:34 PM MT2:34 PM CT3:34 PM ET19:34 GMT3:34 12:34 PM MST2:34 PM EST2:34 PM CT23:34 UAE15:34 ETNaN:� - Ajayi (knee) was a surprise addition to the injury report earlier this week despite practicing in full but was removed from it on Friday.
Analysis: Ajayi has a sore knee, according to coach Adam Gase, but it's "not a big issue." Still, this has to be a slight concern if it's a lingering problem for a player which many believed would be one of fantasy's top RBs in 2017.
Aug. 13, 2017 11:08 AM PT12:08 PM MT1:08 PM CT2:08 PM ET18:08 GMT2:08 11:08 AM MST1:08 PM EST1:08 PM CT22:08 UAE14:08 ETNaN:� - Ajayi has joined team drills for the first time since he was sidelined by a concussion July 31.
Analysis: Ajayi wore pads Sunday for the first time since the injury, but left practice early because of hydration issues in the 90-degree morning sunshine. Coach Adam Gase said the issue was merely a matter of Ajayi regaining his conditioning. Ajayi had a breakout season in 2016, when he ran for 1,272 yards and had consecutive 200-yard games.
Aug. 2, 2017 7:31 AM PT8:31 AM MT9:31 AM CT10:31 AM ET14:31 GMT22:31 7:31 AM MST9:31 AM EST9:31 AM CT18:31 UAE10:31 ETNaN:� - The Dolphins confirmed Ajayi has been diagnosed with a concussion.
Analysis: Ajayi was hit hard during Monday's full-contact practice and was escorted off the field. He was ruled out of Wednesday's practice, and the Miami Herald reported he will miss at least a week of drills. This could limit his playing time in the preseason.
