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.He's on the final year of his deal with the Bengals, so it makes sense they'd draft a running back. But two of them? Trayveon Williams is likely his replacement next year, while Rodney Anderson presents workhorse ability when healthy. This is looking like an ugly mix behind Joe Mixon in 2019, meaning you should just let someone else take Bernard in your drafts.
