Ballage brought in his only target for six receiving yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Ballage once again remained relegated to a niche role in Miami's offense. It speaks well of the rookie's pass catching abilities that he saw the field during the Dolphins' first half two-minute drill, but Ballage appears unlikely to carve out a sizeable offensive role this season. The rookie has yet to receive more than 10 offensive snaps in a single game, and he's consequently only worth rostering in dynasty formats.
Ballage recorded one carry for a loss of two yards and caught both his targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets.
Ballage saw his largest offensive workload of the season during the Week 9 win, logging three touches on four offensive snaps. The rookie running back appears to have carved out a niche offensive role, and has now showcased his pass-catching skills on an NFL field. The rookie is unlikely to garner a notable offensive workload this season behind Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore, but warrants attention in dynasty formats.
Ballage recorded a two-yard carry during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bengals.
After sitting out for the first few weeks of the season, Ballage has suited up in each of the past two weeks but has just two carries and five yards to show for it. Ballage is currently buried behind Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake on the depth chart, and it isn't even quite clear how he would stack up against a healthy Brandon Bolden, who missed Week 5 with a hamstring injury. Sunday doesn't look like a breakout opportunity as Miami takes on a Bears defense ranked third in the league in opponent yards per carry.
Ballage logged his first NFL carry during Sunday's blowout loss, on what was his only offensive snap. The rookie running back also played 56 percent of Miami's special teams snaps. Week 4's game script forced the Dolphins to quickly turn away from the running game, but Ballage seems to be slowly carving out a larger role for himself.
Ballage is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Kenyon Drake and Frank Gore are listed as the Dolphins' co-starters at running back and reserves Senorise Perry and Brandon Bolden are likely both slated for important roles on special teams, so there was no need for Miami to keep Ballage active as a fifth member of the backfield. The rookie out of Arizona State dealt with a concussion during the preseason that robbed him of two opportunities to impress the coaching staff, but if he shines in practices during the upcoming weeks, Ballage could make a case for being included in the Dolphins' game plans.
