Running back

2017 – Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams

2018 – Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore, Kalen Ballage

The trade of Jay Ajayi should have been the wake-up call to fans and a major hint that the team was going to change things up if they didn’t turn the season around. Staying true to that Miami made a lot of changes.

Kenyan Drake was fantastic the latter part of the season and he should excel in 2018 with the addition of Frank Gore who will take off some of the pressure on Drake. Gore is still moving the ball into his 30’s and while he will not be the featured runner in Miami he still has the ability to move the ball down the field and pick up big yards and small yards.

Replacing Williams is Ballage whose film study is impressive. A combination of quickness and hard-hitting, Ballage is able to run the ball and catch the ball and should see plenty of time on special teams returning kicks. He is also a reliable third down back as well.
