Running backs Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams

With the Dolphins moving on from Jay Ajayi, as stated earlier, the Dolphins are using their rotation of backups. Kenyan Drake seems like the guy who is a better runner with Williams as the third down pass catching back. The Dolphins haven’t ran the ball effectively all year but over the past two weeks Drake has averaged over nine yards per carry with 151 yards in those two games. While Williams has been the more productive pass catcher Drake has had eight catches since Ajayi left, with 45 yards. Drake had a 66 yard touchdown in the third quarter against the Panthers so his average may be skewed but it shows he has big play ability.

Damien Williams has not been been a productive runner averaging two yards per carry but has eight catches and one receiving touchdown. Drake has clearly been the better runner but both are decent pass catchers. With the Dolphins confusing offense they will probably give it to the hot hand in this weeks match up. Neither are Jay Ajayi but together they can put up the same numbers.

The Dolphins really hurt your brain when you look at how they lose, who they lose to, how they win and who they beat. A win against the Falcons then a forty point loss to the Ravens no one knows what Dolphins we’ll get this week. Who am I missing sound off on Twitter or Facebook.
