Week 14 vs Atlanta
Ballage had a fine game last week against the New England Patriots as he carried the ball seven times for 34 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for five yards. Working exclusively as Austin Ekeler’s direct backup, Ballage had moments of success in his limited opportunities. Most notably, he played ahead of Joshua Kelley who was limited to two touches. For the time being, Ballage should be viewed as an Ekeler handcuff and nothing more.
