In 2016, the Miami Darqueze Dennard Youth Jersey Dolphins averaged 114 rushing yards per game, which was the ninth best in the league. With the offensive unit mostly intact after the offseason, the question becomes can the Dolphins running game duplicate its 2016 success? Jay Ajayiís breakout 2016 campaign George Iloka Jersey earned him a trip to Orlando for the Pro Bowl. He finished last year as the NFLís fourth leading rusher with 1,272 yards, but his 17.3 carries per game were only the 11th most in the league. Ajayi feels like he could be Jeremy Hill Womens Jersey a workhorse going into next season and head coach Adam Gase echoed that sentiment by saying he intends to increase the running backís workload to 22-25 carries per game. Getting Ajayi more touches on offense, particularly on first and second down should help Miami avoid long yardage situations on third down, where the team had a 36.7 percent conversion rate that ranked the 25th in the NFL. So who will backup Ajayi? That battle will feature a pair of returning players, Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake. Williams entered the offseason seeking a multi-year deal as he visited the New England Patriots during his search. But the 25-year-old running back ultimately signed a one-year restricted free agent tender with the Dolphins.
