Why Mark Walton has probably passed Kenyan Drake for good on Miami Dolphins' depth chart

Mark Walton, just six games into his Dolphins, already seems like a keeper. And he seems to just keep getting better. The former Booker T. Washington, University of Miami and Cincinnati Bengals running back quietly had a career game Sunday. What's even more encouraging: He did it against one of the league's better run defenses. Walton had career highs in carries (14), yards (66) and longest carry from scrimmage (19) Sunday against the Bills. And so if anything, his grip on the Dolphins' RB1 job — he started each of the last two weeks — is stronger than it's ever been. He's moved past not only Kalen Ballage, but also Kenyan Drake on the depth chart. Walton had 38 snaps Sunday; Drake had only 30.
