News:Jay Ajayi carried the ball four times for seven yards in Saturday's 28-26 win over Washington in the Maaco Bowl.
Analysis:Jay Ajayi received limited opportunities as he did much of the season because of workhorse and fifth-year senior D.J. Harper. With Harper gone in 2013, the speedy freshman will get his chance. He's definitely worth a spot in MWC-only leagues and becomes intriguing in any other format.

Analysis:Jay Ajayi has super-quick speed and gives you that big-play threat with every carry. The only problem is that he doesn't receive many carries which really limits his fantasy potential. As long as D.J. Harper is on the team, Ajayi isn't worth owning outside of MWC-only leagues.

News: It has been a long strange trip for Boise State walk-on running back Malcolm Johnson. A highly-sought recruit in 2009, he was suspended for the 2010 Fiesta Bowl and didn't work with the team during the fall. He was ruled academically ineligible and went back to Oregon to go to junior college.
Analysis: Johnson rushed for nearly 7,000 yards as a high-schooler, but is returning to Boise State as a walk-on and will be part of a backfield with only four scholarship players, Doug Martin, D.J. Harper, Raphiel Lambert and Jay Ajayi. At this point, it's about Johnson working his way back into the program.
