Everyone's talking about Drake after the trade, but I think the biggest beneficiary is Walton. I'm also curious if Gaskins is finally active and gets some touches.

I've been holding Walton a few weeks. Hoping he flashes here in the next couple games so I can move him for a 2nd or so.

What is the consensus on Walton? Hold or Sell? If a sell, what would you be trying to get in return for him? Thanks.

Is anyone buying? He's still in arguably the worst RB situation in the league for the rest of the season, on a team that is likely to address the position in one of the next 2 drafts.

I have a team interested that is hurting at RB, only 1 true starter (J. Jacobs). He has already offered up a 3rd for 2020, but not sure if I should do it or not.

I wouldn't be selling yet, this is his showcase opportunity for the next few weeks - and he's looked good in limited work thus far. Plus, there were many forum followers very high on him last year when he was buried in Cincy, I think you have to hope he shows talent flashes over the next 2-3 weeks and then look to sell if you want.

I'd take a 22-year-old with the chance to flash as a lead back over a 3rd. He's at 4.6 a carry in limited work so far. Not to mention that he stands to take over Drake's receiving work and has already looked ok as a pass catcher.

A 2nd, sure.

I’m holding ... I don’t expect much but he’s a bye week fill in for me this week and emergency RB rest of year.

Same here. I am not expecting a ton of production, but at least he can be counted on as a starter for BYE's/injuries moving forward. Not a bad commodity to luck into at the trade deadline for a team with only two starting RB's on a roster. In my case Chubb/Mixon.

When Kamara comes back in Week 10, I imagine Latavius won't be much help either as he'll only get a couple of touches as was the case through Week 6.

As for the other back in Miami, I hope Ballage doesn't get too much work behind Walton, or steal ALL the goal-line work. Fantasy vultures are a real bummer, and Ballage doesn't have much game from what I've seen of him. Basically, I'd consider Walton as a RB3/4, who I'll have to roll as an RB2 a couple of times and hope for the best.

For Drake, I don't think this moves helps out his value at all. Sure, Arizona is a better team than Miami and is much further along in the rebuilding process. But with Johnson and Edmonds already there, Drake will just be another part of the mix, and I imagine his touches will actually decrease from what he'd been seeing in Miami.

I think he has some talent but sold for a 2nd and 2 3rds.

I am paying close attention to Walton. I want to buy at the moment, but don't have any 3rds left from trading. I don't believe he will be back with Miami, but I think he has the talent to showcase and earn a job elsewhere.

Is anyone actually starting Miami RB's though? Even with Drake gone, I don't understand the appeal in any RB on this team unless you have super deep starting requirements:

- They're always trailing
- They're 28th in rushing attempts
- 30th in rushing yards (1 game this season with 100+ rushing yards)
- 25th in adjusted line yards

I think the only reason Drake was able to carve out some sort of meaningful production is because he's actually talented.

You can probably still do worse than starting the starting RB in Miami. If he can get 10-15 rushes and 3-5 catches per game (and I'd probably expect those numbers to be on the higher end of that prediction), that might not be a terrible flex option, especially when guys are on byes. But if you're relying on him for weekly production, then you're probably not winning many games unless you're stacked everywhere else.
