I am really not into this proposed Clowney trade.

Don't mind the pick that was previously being discussed but don't want to give up Drake and Stills.

Well, maybe Stills, but losing Drake would be a mistake, imo.

Miami will be taking a back next draft anyway.

So, if Ballage is not good ... if ("If" - for emphasis) Drake ends up in Houston (or elsewhere)?

For 2019, what are the potential upside swings from whats left of:

Laird, Walton & Gaskin?

I expect Laird to catch a lot of passes.

Ballage has been terrible this pre-season. Stiff upright runner it seems...."His summer finishes with 18 carries for 40 yards (2.22 YPC)"...yikes!!

Stills is my player, I like Kenny. But he wen't against the owner Ross over that Trump fundraiser and his days here are numbered.

I like WALTON in a pass catching situation...but he too has not had a good summer "Walton has a woeful 23 yards on 17 carries (1.35 YPC)"

My Dolphins :F

I would understand if was a position they were loaded at but why deal a guy you can build your offense around for several years at a position that hasn't been too good at the top in recent drafts.

IF Ballage is as bad as his preseason suggests and Drake gets shipped, Miami's best fantasy RB probably isn't on the roster yet.

Keep watching the cut list.
TJ Yeldon or Carlos Hyde?

Maybe the Pats trade Burkhead

This was fast

Everything has been sunshine and rainbows thus far in New York. So we should all prepare ourselves for the Adam Gase and Gregg Williams fist fight on the sideline coming in Week 3

Full on RBBC, I imagine.

Ballage needs Cox, Walton, Smythe, O'Leary, WR + in blocking for him but will break a few off every now and again.

Walton is there for his ST and pass pro so that will lead to a decent amount of use but he is not a great rusher either.

There is something Danny Woodhead-like about Laird that may appeal to the coaches. He is already a fan favourite but I don't know what that is all going to get him come game time. One to keep an eye on though.

If Walton/Ballage continue to flounder then I guess Gaskin will work his way into those touches by default.

But then the O-line is total garbage so RBs aren't going to get a chance to look good anyway.

Long way to say, maybe they all get more touches but you don't really want any part of it.
