31. Miami Dolphins

Expectations were high for the Miami Dolphins around this time last year after they were a surprise playoff contender the year before, but unfortunately the team would end up being a disappointment for the most part after winning just six games. But between Ryan Tannehill looking to prove he’s still the answer under center along with key offseason additions in Frank Gore and Danny Amendola, the Dolphins hope to get back on track.

Through two preseason games, Miami has failed to come up on the winning end, but as long as they win when it matters the most once the regular season arrives, that’s all that truly matters. Talent wise, the Dolphins have numerous players on the roster that seem capable of coming through with big seasons in 2018, one of which happens to be Kenyan Drake.

The Miami backup put together an impressive performance (54 yards on eight carries) against the Carolina Panthers, and one of the best things about Drake is how much he’s going to learn just from playing with Gore. Of course, the Dolphins will need a lot more than strong performances by Drake if they’re going to have any shot at returning to the level of being playoff contenders, meaning it’s only fair to start them off near the bottom of this list.
