2019 Fantasy Outlook
Initially selected by the Bengals in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Walton's uninspiring rookie season was compounded by his being arrested three times in as many months, prompting Cincinnati to release him. The former Miami Hurricane is getting a second chance with the Dolphins after impressing during the team's rookie minicamp, but he's likely on a tight leash and could be released if he slips up again. That said, Walton's versatility will lend him every opportunity to compete with seventh-round rookie pick Myles Gaskin and veteran Kenneth Farrow for what could be a single roster spot behind top backs Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage.

Paces backfield in loss
RBMiami Dolphins
October 20, 2019
Walton rushed 14 times for 66 yards and brought in his only target for minus-8 yards in the Dolphins' 31-21 loss to the Bills on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Walton led the way in carries and rushing yardage for Miami, comfortably outpacing both Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage. The workload was the highest of the season for Walton by far, and considering the type of solid ground production he parlayed it into, he presumably secured a larger role heading into a Week 8 Monday night matchup versus the Steelers.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick out of Miami, Walton has plenty of traits that could allow him to have a long and fruitful NFL career. His powerful running style and low center of gravity allow him to bang through tacklers and gain yards after contact, potentially making him a short-yardage and goal-line option for the Bengals. He also showed good receiving and blocking skills in college, allowing him to stay on the field in all situations. An ankle injury last year sapped his explosiveness, however, and his lack of vision in finding and exploiting holes could be a liability at the next level. He won't be thrust into a big role right away in Cincinnati, as Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard have the top two spots on the depth chart locked down. If injuries or ineffectiveness open touches, Walton could prove to be an effective jack-of-all-trades.
