Other than Brian Flores and Ballage's family, there is almost no one who wants to see Ballage get first-team work over Kenyan Drake. But Drake's preseason injury allowed Flores to pursue that route with little blowback. Unfortunately, Ballage has looked terrible this preseason, showing little burst or vision. Assuming Drake is able to make it back for Week 1, Ballage's role should begin to decrease. He's draftable, of course, but only as a borderline RB3. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
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.Anderson could have some decent weeks this season. KJ is the clear starter, and Anderson will only be getting the low upside carries. However, Anderson carries a lot of upside if KJ were to go down...as we've seen what he's capable of down the stretch last season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
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. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.Anderson finished the season strong, but don't look past the fact that the Rams' offense was the ideal fit for a running back and Detroit is the opposite. If Kerryon goes down, however, Anderson would likely come into a large enough role to make him a low-end RB2.
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.After watching C.J. Anderson carry the Rams offense at the end of last season, he settled for a one-year deal with the Lions to play alongside the up-and-coming Kerryon Johnson. The Lions do want to use a timeshare, so it's likely Anderson inherits the LeGarrette Blount role in the offense, which netted 164 touches last year, though it helped that Johnson missed time at the end of the year. If you combined Blount and Zach Zenner's roles from last year, they netted 209 carries, 683 yards, and eight touchdowns on the ground. Anderson is going to clog upside on your bench as long as Johnson is in the lineup. If Johnson were to miss time, Anderson would likely be considered a low-end RB2
