    We need to utilize his game breaking speed, hands down the best RB on the team. 82 yards on only 7 carries and a TD, No brainer , give him 20 carries!

    He really should be given more carries. If for nothing else to see what we got and in what round to look for a RB.

    In Drake, we have an excellent complimentary back. We should be looking for another as an upgrade to Williams, who has no further upside from what we've been seeing for awhile.

    Williams should get zero carries for the rest of the season. He has absolutely no running skills to speak of.

    I like Drake but I just don't think he can take the pounding that some of you guys are suggesting. He hasn't been the man on his team since he was in HS. He is a very good complimentary back who might not have the durability to survive a season with a high usage rate.

    3rd down/change of pace back

    We need a horse

    But at least drake ran the ball the last 2 weeks where the play call called for which helps give us some return on that 3rd round pick

    Man he had a great block in pass pro earlier in the game and he ran hard. To be honest he showed you the complete package last night.

    Obvious worry is the potential to get injured with heavy, incorrect usage.

    Exactly I would play him based on his blocking in pass pro. Dude just wants to play football and hit someone.

    Yeah we need more players like Drake, who decide to bring their A game when there is a blowout and the defense is yawning and ready to celebrate victory. Nothing like making an *** whipping look respectable.

    He had one big rip and a bunch of small runs. Maybe the guy just needs volume.

    This will be another typical Dolphins situation where the better player gets less game time. Anyone with eyes can see that Drake is better than Williams, but we’ll keep forcing the ball to Williams.

    You start Drake 10 - 12 touches per game , and bring in a banger RB to compliment him next year ...Williams got hands and that's about it. I would cut bait with him next year..IMHO

    Agreed, 85% of this teams problem is the QB.

    Need to have him hitting the edge. It's been proved that he can't run up the middle over and over again...

    Drake's got the homerun speed but his body can't take the beating of a 20 touch game for 16 weeks. He had like 7 different injuries in college as the backup RB. I'd try and get a bruiser RB somewhere in rounds 3-5 in the draft or a decent vet FA in the offseason to compliment Drake. Draft priority goes to Oline and TEs.

    What about this Perry kid? Is he a pounder?

    Agree Drake is a complimentary player - and a good one - and Williams value is more pass catching than running from scrimmage. I'd like to see Williams back last year and I used to rip the guy but he's grown on me. But we do need a pounder.
