Dolphins OC says Ajayi is much improved in receiving
- On Saturday, Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said running back Jay Ajai’s receiving skills are “200 percent” better than this time last year.
- The Dolphins running back ranked third at his position in overall grade (84.9) and led the NFL in PFF’s elusive rating metric (76.0).
- Ajayi dropped two passes on 29 catchable targets for a drop rate of 6.9 percent, 30th of 42 RBs. Teammate Damien Williams was tied for first in the NFL, dropping zero of 23 catchable targets.
- While Ajayi led the NFL in forced missed tackles (63), only five came in the receiving game, good for just 29th in the NFL.
- He ranked dead last in yards per route run (0.69) among 43 RBs with 100-plus snaps in route.
