Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore seemed to find the fountain of youth again this season. But after suffering a mid-foot sprain, the
#Dolphins RB Frank Gore, who is out the final two weeks with a mid-foot sprain, will see how his foot heals before a determination is made whether he needs surgery, source said. He’s clearly playing forever, so he needs to make sure he’s right for 2019.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 17, 2018

But despite Gore's absence, head coach Adam Gase didn't include Drake in the rotation last week, instead leaning on Ballage. Drake finished the afternoon with just one carry, as did Bolden, who had two touchdowns on two carries the week prior against the Patriots.
So the Dolphins, and possibly some fantasy owners, have a decision to make -- a decision that could potentially make or break your fantasy team in championship week.
Going off recency, it seems like Ballage is the clear choice. If we're going off totals from the year or experience, then Drake is the guy. And Bolden seems like a wild card at this point. One thing that is certain about Gase is that the player that will be his go-to running back each week is always uncertain.
