Miami Herald's Adam Beasley notes that Kalen Ballage is the Dolphins' starting running back until Kenyan Drake (foot) returns. 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.The sentiment among Chiefs training camp reports are that Carlos Hyde is firmly on the roster bubble. Anecdotal though it may be, when the OC and RB coach were asked about Hyde they showered him with back handed compliments hinting at age, veteran status, and leadership. @JhawkChalk89

The hype surrounding Ballage continues to grow by the day. Before the Drake injury, reports out of camp suggested that the two would be slitting time, similar to Lindsay and Freeman. Then, after the first preseason game, it seemed as they viewed Drake as their Lindsay and Ballage as their Freeman. However, Drake is currently in a walking boot. We don't yet know how severe the injury is, but this is going to help our Ballage a lot. He's now getting all the first team reps, and he's reportedly looked much improved over last season. That's a good thing for Ballage because he was terrible in his rookie season. Aside from one long carry he was veyr bad, and not elusive at all. There's still a lot working against Ballage. His offensive line is bad, and this isn't a good offense. Plus Drake will have a role when he returns. If his ADP gets insane then just stay away. But at least as of right now, he's a value for where you can get him in drafts.No matter what you think of Damien Williams, Hyde is a good pick late in drafts. He's not a very good RB, but the actual skill level of a RB matters very little. If Williams suffers an injury, then Hyde is going to be a high end RB 2. You likely won't be able to use Hyde unless that happens, but you shouldn't expect to use your picks in this range anyways. Take Hyde and the upside that comes with him.

Should get more reps with Drake injured. Up.

Ballage is currently running with the first team in Miami's offense under the new Head Coach. He may end up like Chris Carson and flat out win the starting job, but it still seems more than likely that Drake will end up with the lion's share of the running back touches.Damien Williams is expected to open the season and Kansas City's starting running back, but he has never handled a large workload even in college so it is possible that the Chiefs acquired Hyde to handle a chunk of those touches. Andy Reid has also been claiming this will be a split backfield with Williams and Hyde making a running back committee.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Some seem to believe Ballage has a shot at the starting job, but you shouldn't bank on that. Kenyan Drake is the superior running back of the two and has already shown what he's capable of on the NFL level. Even if Ballage gets into a timeshare, it's not going to be a high-scoring offense in year one under Brian Flores, so you wouldn't be getting much. He should be treated as a low-level handcuff to Drake.The Chiefs have already acknowledged Damien Williams will be their starter, but he's a running back who's still yet to see more than 13 carries in a regular season game or 50 carries in a full season. There's no better handcuff to bet on than Andy Reid's, as whoever is taking snaps in his offense will post RB2 numbers, at minimum. Hyde doesn't cost you very much to have on your bench, and let's be honest, if someone would've asked you a year ago who you'd rather have as your team's running back, you would've chosen Hyde over Williams. He's someone who may not even need an injury to eventually take the starting job
