LeGarrette Blount rushed seven times for 12 yards in the Eagles' Week 14 win over the Rams.
He added two receptions for 11 yards. The Eagles' lead back early, Blount gave way to Jay Ajayi after running into one too many brick walls. Ajayi took the lead for his first time as an Eagle, out-touching Blount 16-9. Blount will be a touchdown-or-bust RB4 for the fantasy semifinals against the Giants. Dec 10 - 8:33 PM

Eagles VP of Football Operations Howie Roseman said LeGarrette Blount remains the team's starting running back, even after acquiring Jay Ajayi from the Dolphins on Tuesday.

We're not really buying it, though it's possible Ajayi could take a backseat to Blount in Week 9 as he learns the Eagles' offense. Roseman said the team liked what it saw from Ajayi in joint practices with the Dolphins this summer and despite rumblings of a knee issue, the Eagles did not find any red flags after going through his medical records. Ajayi has been largely unproductive this year but should benefit from a change of scenery behind a better offensive line in Philadelphia. It wouldn't be a surprise if he took over the lead role from Blount following the team's bye in Week 10.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: On top of market share uncertainty, they're facing a Broncos run defense holding RBs to the fewest PPR points and heading into Week 8, they were 1st in rush DVOA and 3rd in adjusted line yards (per FO).

Wendell Smallwood played 35-of-79 snaps Week 4 against the Chargers.

Smallwood played nine more snaps than LeGarrette Blount, but he was out-touched 17-to-14 and Blount had a much better day on the ground, thanks in large part to a 68-yard run. This is clearly going to be a timeshare moving forward. Blount may have more upside as the likely goal-line back of choice -- Smallwood did steal a touchdown after Blount failed multiple times near the end zone on Sunday -- but Smallwood should be the most consistent fantasy player as the less game-script dependent option.
