Kenyan Drake was seen earlier leaving Dolphin's practice with a foot injury Wednesday. As a result, Miami will primarily lean on Kalen Ballage for the lead running back role during Drake's absence. (Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact:

The Dolphins have been really high on Ballage this offseason, and they want him to be more involved in their run schemes this year. Ballage has backed Miami's hype by having a strong opening preseason game against the Falcons as he rushed six times for 23 yards and a touchdown. He also continues to turn heads during practice as he tore another huge touchdown run on Wednesday as well. Ballage is an interesting flex play for now, and his value could increase dramatically if Drake is forced to miss some extensive time during the regular season.
