Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (hip) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Frank Gore is out for the remainder of the year, and it was Ballage—not Kenyan Drake—who took over as Miami’s primary runner last week against the Vikings, gaining 123 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. He caught 64 passes in his final two seasons at Arizona State, so he’s a capable receiver as well. The matchup against the Jaguars isn’t great, though Jacksonville has yielded 160 yards rushing in six away games while giving up just 90 yards rushing in eight home games this season. Drake (shoulder) took full practice reps all week and will play on Sunday. But it doesn’t look like he’s going to lead this backfield in touches, even with Frank Gore out.

Scouting Report

Week 17 at Buffalo Bills

Miami goes to cold Buffalo with nothing to play for in Week 17 (except maybe its head coach). The Dolphins have a miserable implied team total of just 17.5 points as 4.5-point underdogs. With Ryan Tannehill posting fewer than 15 combined fantasy points over the past two weeks, no player involved in this passing game is worthy of starting consideration in Week 17 against a tough Bills secondary. Despite that, even the Dolphins run game is risky due to Adam Gase's RBBC. This appears to be a run funnel offense, with Buffalo ranked 29th in aFPA to RBs. If there's one player to start in this offense, it would be Kenyan Drake in PPR leagues. Kalen Ballage is just a dart throw FLEX option.
