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.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (neck) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Ballage has taken over the starting job with Mark Walton suspended but was held to only 43 yards on 20 carries in Week 10. He will continue to be the main option in the running game but can be avoided if better options are available.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage played 82 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 10, against the Indianapolis Colts. RB Patrick Laird played just eight offensive snaps with RB Myles Gaskin playing five total snaps (all on offense).
Huddle Up: Ballage ran the ball 20 times but for a very disappointing 43 yards. He caught all four of his targets but for just two yards. It was the Dolphins' second straight win but it remains highly doubtful there'll be many more of these. If he wasn't successful in Week 10, it's unlikely he will be.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage rushed 20 times for 43 yards and caught four passes for two yards in a 16-12 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Ballage enjoyed a hefty workload as the last man standing in the Miami backfield, but he continued to struggle with efficiency. Even if he continues to receive a majority of the touches going forward, he is a volume-based flex play, at best.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage 'should get at least 75 percent' of the touches against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Ballage has managed an abysmal 2.0 yards per carry this season, but following the trade of Kenyan Drake and the suspension of Mark Walton, he is the closest thing Miami has to a lead back. That being said, he is a volume-based flex play, at best, against the Colts.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage rushed three times for eight yards with one catch for 11 yards on one target in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Ballage made the start following the trade of Kenyan Drake earlier in the day, but it was Mark Walton who had 11 carries and 14 total touches. If you're looking for fantasy help in the backfield following the Drake deal, Ballage is only worth a look in the deepest of formats.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage rushed for seven yards and one touchdown on three carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Ballage appears to be the goal line back for the Dolphins but probably is not a reliable weekly option for fantasy players.

Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage was on the field for only eight offensive snaps during the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Kenyan Drake appears to be the clear No. 1 running back for the Dolphins, so Ballage does not have much fantasy value at this point. Fantasy players can consider dropping Ballage if they need a spot on their roster.

Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage will be involved in the offense in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to running backs coach Eric Studesville. However, head coach Brian Flores seemed to indicate Wednesday, Sept. 4 that Drake would see a heavier workload.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners of Ballage can't be terribly pleased, but it's just Week 1. Treat Ballage as a RB4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams, with slightly more value in PPR formats.
