Mike Tagliere

How are we devaluing White's role on the Patriots again? With Rob Gronkowski, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Chris Hogan gone, Tom Brady is going to be looking for some familiar faces, and it's not like they've used Sony Michel in the passing game. White should have a similar role to last year, you know, the one that had him wind-up as the RB8 on the season. We're all still probably too low on himHe's the most talented running back on the Dolphins roster, though that didn't seem to mean all that much under Adam Gase. With Gase out of town, can Drake get the touches he deserves under new head coach Brian Flores? Most don't realize that despite not topping 17 touches in a game and only hitting more than 10 touches seven times in 2018 that Drake finished as the No. 17 running back. He doesn't offer top-five upside, but he might be a sturdy RB2 in 2019
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 The talent is off the charts. The problem is Drake isn't 100%, not always efficient and Kalen Ballage is also pretty good. He's a risky pick.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
White is about as solid as they come in PPR formats, though his production waned as the season went on. With Rob Gronkowski out of the lineup, White's production has often soared, which portends good things for 2019. Josh Gordon's presence gives Tom Brady another body to throw the ball to (assuming Gordon can stay on the field), but White should continue to remain heavily involved in Josh McDaniels' system. Expect another borderline RB1 season in PPR leagues.For reasons that no sane fantasy owner can understand, every Miami Dolphins coach seems to want to minimize Drake's role in the offense despite him constantly producing. Brian Flores talked openly about wanting to get Kalen Ballage a big piece of the running back pie, and those talks only increased when Drake showed up in a walking boot in mid-August. But Ballage has shown zero vision or elusiveness in the preseason, so assuming Drake recovers for Week 1, he should likely garner the lion's share of the touches. If he does manage to see close to 20 touches per game as he should, he has a chance to finish as a borderline RB1.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Drake is unlikely to play the rest of the preseason after suffering a foot injury during Tuesday's practice, and he should be considered questionable for the regular season opener. If Drake misses time, Ballage will be the starter with unproven talents behind him. If Drake is healthy, this will be some degree of a committee backfield. In the preseason opener (when both were healthy), Drake played on 9-of-13 first-team snaps while Ballage subbed in for four snaps. - Miami Herald
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Once in a fully healthy backfield with Michel and Burkhead, White lost a bunch of touches and performed nowhere near his early season production. He was no longer a top 24 RB and he had 3 games with 2 or less catches and 15 or less yards in the final 6 weeks. He will certainly be a steal if injuries arise again, but I think some caution is granted here after a career year above his norm.Last season, Drake was 41st in carries with 120 and 14th in receptions for RBs with 53, he still turned that into an RB17 finish in half ppr. This guy is elusive and productive, but it somehow looks like he will be splitting work with Ballage. He does have a direct path to all the pass catching work though, which will keep him in the RB2 discussion every week.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Over the last 4 seasons, White has finished as the RB 45/28/41/8. Last season Burkhead was injured for most of the season, and Michel was banged up for part of the year as well. This season Burkhead is back, Sony is healthy for now, and they drafted another RB in Damien Harris. None of these RB's will take White's third down role away, but they will ensure that he sees closer to 50 carries than 100. In 14 games without Gronk in the lineup, White has seen an extra target per game, and a 43% increase in TD's per game. Basically White's fantasy value is going to hinge on his TD's. If he gets lucky and ends up with 12 like last season...then he's going to be a value at his ADP. If he regresses a bit and only gets 7-8 (still a decent amount given his expected total volume) then he's probably going to finish as a pick that neither hurts, nor helps you. If he gets unlucky in the TD department then he's going to be a bust. I typically fade players like this, since I like to leave as little up to luck as possible.With Ballage getting first team reps, we need to stop taking Drake so early in drafts. Drake is the better RB, and is much better for fantasy, but if their coaching staff doesn't view him as the starter, then we can't be taking him in the middle rounds. Ballage was not good last season, forcing just three missed tackles on 45 touches. His YPC average is also inflated from one long run. So unless he took major steps forward in the offseason, it says a lot that they would view him as the starter. This is a bad offense, with the leagues worst offensive line. At this point, we need to just stay away.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
White finished as an RB1 last season and now the offense has fewer weapons in the passing game and a banged up starting running back. It isn't crazy to think White could end up back in that territory in 2019 and if he doesn't, he is a safe bet to finish top 30 thanks to his receiving abilities.With a new offense, it is anyone's guess how large of a workload Drake will be given. Frank Gore is out of the equation so perhaps Drake will take over as a true three-down back. That could be fire if Ryan Fitzpatrick wins the starting job, but if it is Rosen, there won't be much upside in the Miami running game. Just recently, it has been Kalen Ballage who is running with the first team so this is a situation to monitor.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
We prefer our RBs to be rooted in a foundation of carries, but White forces us to think differently - 10 of his 12 TDs came inside the red zone, and only CMC produced more fantasy points via the pass among RBs 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
White was a huge part of the Patriots passing game and I would expect that to continue in 2019. He's capable of posting 100 receptions in a season, which gives him enough touches to have RB3 value in standard leagues and RB2 value in PPR leagues. 
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
 Forever locked in fantasy football hell with Adam Gase as the Head Coach of the Miami Dolphins, Drake has now been set free! Under the new coaching staff, Drake stands to see a boost in overall touches this season and he has the talent to elevate himself into the Top-15 RB conversation. My only concern is the overall team talent and how many times Drake will be in scoring opportunities in 2019.
