Kalen Ballage Is a Shaky Play In Week Two

Seeing he had a 113 ADP in NFBC, more than a few people thought Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage would not only be a viable fantasy play in 2019 but might also be a threat to steal the starter's job from incumbent Kenyan Drake. But it was a committee approach for the Dolphins in Week Two, with both backs receiving six touches and failing to impress much on any of them, combining for just 11 yards rushing and 28 yards receiving. While it is hard to take away much from the game plan considering how quickly the Dolphins fell behind in a 59-10 blowout loss to the Ravens, it is clear that neither back can currently be trusted in your lineup in anything but the most desperate situations. Ballage should still be stashed in deep leagues until the situation becomes clearer but your best chance for production in Week Two against New England will likely hinge on how many garbage-time points can be had once the Dolphins are significantly behind on the scoreboard.

Philip Rivers Should Have Solid Week 2

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers lost his tight end this week, but he should still be able to put up a good performance in Week 2 against the Lions. The veteran star has shown before that he has no problem picking apart a defense with nothing but backup wideouts, and he'll at least have his favorite targets, Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler, available this week. Detroit's defense fell apart in the second half of last week's game, and that was against a rookie QB with a rookie head coach. Someone with Rivers' experience should have no problem finding holes.

Michael Badgley Remains Questionable

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Michael Badgley remains questionable heading into Week 2 due to his groin injury. Badgley suffered the injury on the Friday before the team's first game of the season, forcing punter Ty Long to have to fill in for him. Long did an admirable job, but the team would certainly rather have Badgley back. The good news is Badgley did practice all week, so it seems like he's got a solid chance at playing. Obviously, if he doesn't, fantasy owners should avoid Long. If Badgley can return, he's a solid kicker in all leagues.
