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.Hines just isn't the type of RB I like to target late in drafts. Yes, he's probably going to out perform his ADP. But there isn't a path to him being a league winner. His upside is that the Colts defense ends up worse than we expect, that the Colts are trailing in a lot of games, and he gets lucky in the TD department. None of his production will be predicable, and even an injury to Mack won't give him much extra volume on the ground. Plus the addition of Campbell is likely to take some of his slot receptions away. He's just not worth drafting.

Should get more reps with Drake injured. Up.

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.Marlon Mack isn't going anywhere and even if he did get injured, it would be Jordan Wilkins or Spencer Ware who would become the lead back. Hines is among the best receiving backs in football, though, and was even split out wide fairly often last year so he has RB4 stand-alone value.
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.We already saw the role Hines will have on the Colts, as he's not the lead back but rather the passing-down back. He tallied 85 carries and 81 targets last year, which is more than enough volume in that high-scoring offense to be fantasy relevant. The Colts have said they want Marlon Mack to carry most of the workload, but think of Hines like the Duke Johnson of their offense. He should offer RB4 numbers regularly in PPR formats, though he doesn't offer much upside, even if Mack were to miss time, as they'd share the workload between him, Spencer Ware, and Jordan Wilkins
