Dolphins are thin at running back

Miami lost starting running back Damien Williams and reserve Senorise Perry in the game. Williams suffered a shoulder injury in the third quarter and Perry went into concussion protocol following a big collision on special teams in the first half. Both are expected to miss future games.

The injury situation left Miami with just one healthy running back -- Kenyan Drake -- for much of the second half. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Williams also will miss Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos but he hasn't been ruled out by the team.

Miami likely will promote DeVeon Smith from the practice squad. He was called up briefly to the active roster for one week this month and can serve as a backup while providing help on special teams.

Fantasy Impact: 

As the story said, this is a big chance for Drake to step up, however he did have a big fumble last week. And the knock on him has been staying healthy. But with not much behind him to threaten a potential large workload, Drake has a chance to really make an impact at the position and be a solid fantasy starter.
