Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (foot) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Redskins. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. Ballage played just 8 snaps in Miami's last game and was off the fantasy radar anyway. His absence would lock in Mark Walton as the #2 RB behind Kenyan Drake.
The Bengals added Miami RB Mark Walton in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Walton might have gone much higher had he been able to enter last year’s draft. He broke out for 1,117 yards and 14 TDs on a 5.3 yards-per-carry average in 2016, adding another 240 yards and a score on 27 catches. He averaged 7.6 yards per carry through 5 games this past season, but his campaign was cut short by a right ankle injury that required surgery. Walton then disappointed in the pre-draft process, registering a 15th percentile SPARQ score at 5’10 and 202 pounds. He joins a crowded Bengals backfield alongside Joe Mixon and Gio Bernard. Mixon is signed through 2020; Bernard 2019.
