Ajayi was impressive in Week 1 against Atlanta with 15 carries for 62 yards and two touchdowns, and he should build off that performance this week.
It would be nice if he was more involved in the passing game, but coach Doug Pederson already said Ajayi would handle more touches in future outings.
He’ll continue to rotate with Corey Clement and Darren Sproles, with the latter the primary option on passing downs, but Ajayi should again carry the offense with Carson Wentz (knee) and Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) out. Tampa Bay only allowed 38 rushing yards on 12 carries to Alvin Kamara and Mike Gillislee last week, but Kamara scored two rushing touchdowns.
And he added nine catches for 112 yards and a touchdown through the air. Ajayi won’t do that, but he should have the chance to score again in Week 2:
