ESPN's Cameron Wolfe tweets that Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage has a "real chance" to start this season. The 2nd-year back has been getting the 1st reps with the starting offense early in training camp. RB Kenyan Drake has been extremely efficient over the past 2 seasons. But former HC Adam Gase never committed to him, and it doesn't sound like Miami's new staff is planning to feature him either. We'll be watching the usage in the Dolphins backfield in preseason. As it stands now, though, Ballage is a big value at his RB57 ADP.

Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage is in the concussion protocol, insider Armando Salguero reports. It's the 1st known concussion of the rookie's football career. We'll see how long Ballage is sidelined, but this obviously won't help his chances of earning an early-season role. He's not worth a roster spot in standard-sized redraft leagues.

The Dolphins added Arizona State RB Kalen Ballage in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Ballage certainly looks the part. He goes 6’2, 228 pounds with 4.4 speed and an 85th percentile SPARQ score. But neither the tape nor the production match that scintillating size-athleticism combination. Ballage struggles to make defenders miss and mustered just 4.4 yards per carry over his 4-year college career. He never even led his Arizona State backfield in carries. On the plus side, Ballage has flashed plus pass-catching ability, registering a 44-469-1 receiving line back in 2016. He’s a boom/bust prospect. Ballage joins Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore in Miami’s backfield.
