Jay Ajayi 2016 Fantasy Analysis
Career Synopsis:
Jay Ajayi was below his fantasy projection last year. His best fantasy RB ranking was #83 in 2015.
Career Experience Outlook:
Ajayi is entering his 2nd year in the NFL. Over the past 15 years, on average, RBs in their 2nd year have seen an increase in fantasy pts per game of 0.39 from their 1st year.
Position Outlook:
Last year Ajayi averaged 2.36 fantasy pts per game less than the league RB average. The average fantasy pts per game by RBs in 2015 was 5.60.
Player Turnover:
Based on prior performance, a change in roster skilled positions projects a lower fantasy average of (0.159) pts per game for Ajayi. At the Running Back/Full Back position: Lamar Miller (2015 Avg: 10.44 Pts/Game) has left the team and Gabe Hughes has been added to the starting lineup. At the Wide Receiver position: Rishard Matthews (2015 Avg: 5.75 Pts/Game) has left the team and DeVante Parker (2015 Avg: 5.34 Pts/Game) is now starting. At the Tight End position: Dion Sims (2015 Avg: 1.12 Pts/Game) is now starting. Along the Offenisve Line: Dallas Thomas is no longer starting, John Denney has left the team and Ja'Wuan James, Billy Turner and Laremy Tunsil have been added to the starting lineup.
Schedule Difficulty:
Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Ajayi plays this year (95 - 97 - 0 0.495%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (90 - 118 - 0 0.433%), and last season's teams gave up more points (5,004) compared to this season's teams (4,217) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Ajayi had a lower fantasy avg (1.70 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (3.69 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could also be an indication of less points.
From a defensive standpoint, Ajayi will face defenses that are stronger this year (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 13.92 - 5 Top 10 Defenses and 3 Top 5 Defenses) compared to last season (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 17.85 - 4 Top 10 Defenses and 2 Top 5 Defenses), and last season's teams gave up more rushing yards (112 yds/game - 3 Top 10 Defenses and 1 Top 5 Defense) compared to this season's teams (104 yds/game - 6 Top 10 Defenses and 1 Top 5 Defense).
