Anyone taking a flier on Ajayi at the end of their draft? 
On the mend from an ACL tear 8 months ago, he's still only 25 and seemingly the top free agent RB still out there.
He's got a proven track record, 1400+ total yards and 8 TDs just a couple years ago. 

If he signs into In the right situation, any chance he's a potential league-winner?

Duke was picked up as a compliment to Lamar, back when Lamar was still healthy. So there are 2 possibilities. A: They're still looking for a back to fill the Miller role and Duke's will be unchang

They'll sign him and give Tre Carson 90% of snaps

At this point he's closer to a league destroyer than a winner.   He's gonna land somewhere and likely not be valuable to roster on his own, but do just enough to screw up the incumbent #1 at

Not sure about "league-winner" but certainly serviceable on the right team with favorable conditions. Last I heard, Colts, Buccs and maybe the Dolphins were interested? Colts, he might be viable enough to draft.

He's been cleared and looking for work... seems like he'd make sense for the Texans before they trade clowney for smallwood.... which is a funny name trade...

Wasn't he medically cleared at end of July? Have any teams taken a serious look at him thus far? He seems like he could fit the bill as an early down back for Texans assuming his knee holds up but with other RBs likely to be cut as rosters trim down I imagine Texans won't rush to sign him.

Guess it depends on what teams trash is the Texans treasure(not saying whoever gets cut is trash just saying they can't carve a role out for whatever team how good were they)... we know Ajayi can play at a high level and the Texans are high powered... and they may not rush but the season starts in like 15 days... if someone needs to learn plays and assignments why would you dilly dally another 7 to 10 of them... if you had someone available now...

True but you could apply that same logic to Ajayi not being signed yet even though he seemed to have been medically cleared like a month ago. I guess you could argue he was waiting for something like this to happen that would give him a better chance at a potential starting spot and it is almost inevitable someone would lose their starter early in the season. Definitely not a bad lottery ticket as he's probably available for free in most leagues but I'm kind of surprised I haven't heard more talk about him over past month and kind of leads me to believe teams may have concern about his current fitness (and even before ACL there were concerns about his knees dating back to the draft).

I took him at the very end of my auction for $1.

 

We haven’t had many BIG running back injuries yet so I’m assuming that’s why he hasn’t signed yet. Gotta wait for a team to get desperate.

Theres no way he goes unsigned this season.

OK, sounds like it might be false info from Al Michaels.

However, if it is true, where do you guys rank Ajayi?  Does he step right into Lamar's role or is it more of a timeshare?

Low end RB2

Wouldnt crack top 30 for me, he wouldnt have near the share Lamar was projected to have and even at that Lamar Miller was only a low end RB2.

At best if he stays healthy. I recall Eagles last year starting to lean on him a little and he had all sorts of physical ailments. And that was before getting hurt for the year. I want him to do well but I'm very guarded. I'd take a flyer at best.
