Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (leg) suffered a leg injury during the Week 13 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how long Ballage may be sidelined. Patrick Laird likely would take over the starting job if Ballage misses time but probably would only be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (Achilles) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Ballage has rushed for at least 20 yards in only one game this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (Achilles) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Ballage has been receiving most of the carries for the Dolphins over the last several weeks but has posted disappointing numbers this season. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues until he is more productive.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (Achilles) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Ballage has not posted more than 45 yards in any game this season and should be avoided in fantasy leagues even though he may receive most of the carries in the running game.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin was able to play 16 snaps in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, eight behind starter RB Kalen Ballage and seven behind RB Patrick Laird.
Huddle Up: Gaskin might have the most upside of the triumvirate, but Ballage was confirmed as the starter for Week 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles and Laird is also in the mix. For long-term dynasty formats Gaskin might have some appeal, but in redraft play he can mostly be avoided.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage will remain the starting running back in Week 13 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Brian Flores.
Huddle Up: Miami is averaging 63.2 yards rushing, which is easily the worst in the league and on pace to be the worst season average since the 1946 Detroit Lions. Ballage has not cracked four yards per carry in any game this season and been held under 3.0 YPC in all but one contest. The Dolphins finally seem to be acknowledging his shortcomings, however, as he saw 24 snaps in Week 12 versus 23 for Patrick Laird and 16 for Myles Gaskin. They should all be avoided in Week 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage rushed seven times for just 13 yards in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns and he added one grab for 13 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Patrick Laird and Myles Gaskin are also getting some looks as sort of a three-headed monster in the Miami backfield, as they look for someone to emerge as the No. 1 tailback. It's a fantasy mess. Avoid the situation completely.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage rushed nine times for nine yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Believe it or not, the nine yards was the team high for the Dolphins, which tells you a little about how they did in this game. When the team shipped away Kenyan Drake he had a golden opportunity to be the bellcow, but he is frittering his chance. The good news is that no one else is stepping up. Still, he is only worth keeping around as a RB4 heading into Week 12 in Cleveland.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (illness, neck) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Ballage will continue to serve as the starting running back for the Dolphins over the next few weeks but has not posted great numbers this season. He could be a flex option in deep leagues because of the amount of carries he will receive but is not a must-start option.
