Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is viewed as the starter in the eyes of head coach Adam Gase. "He knows he's the starter," Gase said. "He's showing me a lot of great things. I like his skill set. He's impressd me more both days [of practice]."
Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins could still add to their running back depth during the NFL draft, but Ajayi is the guy right now. He showed promise as a rookie last year and plays the part of a capable starter. If Ajayi stays healthy and doesn't have to compete for many touches, he has RB2 upside.

Miami Dolphins OT Laremy Tunsil could be placed in the NFL drug program, but he faces no discipline from the leaked video that surfaced on draft day because he's not in the program right now. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tunsil's entry into the program "is up to the medical clinicians." Tunsil has not failed any drug tests in his two years at Ole Miss, but the video of him smoking from a bong would still merit potential reference into the program.

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said he wants to drop eight to 10 pounds this season and play around 218 pounds to 220 pounds in order to be shiftier. He played between 228 pounds and 230 pounds last season.
Fantasy Tip: Ajayi showed promise in his rookie season despite playing second fiddle to Lamar Miller. With Miller out of town, Ajayi figures to take over as Miami's starting running back, although he could have more competition after the NFL Draft. For now, view Ajayi as a low-end RB2.

Miami Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') was able to practice Tuesday, April 26, just six months after tearing his Achilles' tendon. He worked on a limited basis, and didn't participate in team or 7-on-7 drills, but still impressive fellow DE Andre Branch. "That's awesome. He's definitely a vet in his league. He's been playing at a high level for a long period of time. He leads by example. He's the type of player you follow," Branch said. Head coach Adam Gase said the goal is to have Wake 100 percent when training camp arrives.
