Brian Flores: Kalen Ballage has "an opportunity to get some more carries"

Speaking to the media Wednesday, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores noted that RB Kalen Ballage has "got an opportunity to get some more carries" and that "hopefully he takes advantage."

Fantasy Impact: 

Ballage is in line for a healthy workload in the Dolphins backfield. Kenyan Drake is now in Arizona and Mark Walton is suspended for four games. A pair of rookies in Myles Gaskin and Patrick Laird sit behind Ballage and may be sprinkled in, but for now, this is Ballage's time to shine. That said, Miami faces a Colts defense that is among the top ten, schedule-adjusted, in fantasy points allowed to running backs. And Ballage hasn't seen more than eight carries in a game this season or posted more than 19 yards. That could rise now that he has the reigns to himself. For this week, Ballage is likely no more than a flex play.
