The Dolphins plan to stick with their four-back rotation for Thursday night's game against the Bengals.

It's a situation to avoid for fantasy purposes. Kenyan Drake led the Week 3 backfield in snaps and touches, but only narrowly over Jay Ajayi. Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams both saw more than 10 snaps. Neither Drake nor Ajayi is a recommended RB3 while Arian Foster (groin) remains sidelined.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This is a situation to avoid in terms of DFS in Week 4. Thursday players tend to be a bit more popular than they should, and while it's hard to imagine any of these backs carrying relevant ownership percentages, they are still well worth fading. Drake led the way in Week 3, but the backfield was divided almost evenly which sieves value from each back. If you're targeting the Miami side, Jarvis Landry (at least 10 targets in each game) is your best bet.

Arian Foster is officially listed as the No. 1 running back on the Dolphins' depth chart.

Jay Ajayi got a host of ceremonial August starts, but the Dolphins haven't tried to hide the fact that Foster will be their first preference on all three downs. Few players are bigger injury risks, while Foster looked a gear slower before popping his Achilles' tendon last season, but he'll be a legitimate RB2 for however long he's on the field.
