    Nothing wrong with high expectations and Jay Ajayi should expect a lot this season. He certainly has the chance to be among the league leaders in rushing and could top 1500 yards. I think Adam Gase will be smart with his usage and we might see Kenyon Drake go for 500-600 yards this season.

    I would like to see Ajayi behind an improved offensive line. How many times was he met at the line of scrimmage, only to break a couple tackles and bust a nice run? We could be talking 1800 yards here.

    The first man rarely brings him down. Imagine the stats he would have before that Dallas oline

    He looks even bigger this season and that's saying something because he was a tank last year.

    1200 Yards easy....1600 yards a strong possibility....

    Barely used him last year early, and even did not give him the rock enough in some later games after he proved himself.

    25 carries a game minimum please....sprinkle in some Drake runs/passes, and Cutler won't feel pressured to sling it to the other team in panic mode.

    Run the offense thru him

    It's the best way to hide the qb exposure

    20 plus carries per game. Play him on 3rd down too. Ride that horse.

    I bought into him. Drafted him 4th overall on my wife's fantasy league team.
