|The departure of Frank Gore to Buffalo presumably opens the door for Ballage to become the early down and short-yardage tailback for the Dolphins in 2019, with Kenyon Drake splitting carries and working as the primary receiving back for Ryan Fitzpatrick or Josh Rosen.
Of the two, Ballage is the better draft day bargain and more of a value compared to Drake, however, Drake's explosiveness and receiving prowess give him a higher ceiling.
At 6'1", 230 pounds, Ballage is a beast of a man and fast for his size. However, he does not excel at making quick cuts in space and is not a skilled receiver at this point in his pro career.

Zach Zenner signed

FFToday's Take: We're not sure yet what injury Ballage has but at any rate his season is over. Patrick Laird and Zenner should handle the bulk of rushing work for the Dolphins but neither are a big priority off the waiver wire as the Dolphins are typically scripted out of running the ball early in games.

Violated league's conduct and substance abuse policy

FFToday's Take: On the one-week anniversary of Kenyan Drake getting traded to Arizona, the Dolphins lose the back they were beginning to lean on as their guy in the backfield. There's not a ton of fantasy upside in Miami's rushing attack, but there's always going to be some value with any back seeing 15 touches on a regular basis. His absence means - at least for the moment - that Kalen Ballage will become the workhorse. Only truly desperate owners should consider adding him in fantasy.
