Mark Walton suspended four games

The NFL has suspended Dolphins running back Mark Walton four games for violating the conduct and substance abuse policy.

The suspension is a result of his three off-season arrests, not a new infraction. Still, it's a stark reminder of Walton's checkered past and comes at a terrible time as he has vaulted to the top of the depth chart in Miami. Kalen Ballage will take over, with rookies Patrick Laird and Myles Gaskin finally getting some run. Gaskin is the more intriguing of the two, though neither are exactly sending dynasty owners running to spend their FAAB balance. Walton's dynasty value will take a hit here, but he should have a chance to stabilize it if he returns later this year and resumes his role as the starter. Still, it's hard to believe the Dolphins won't address this position in the off-season. Meanwhile, it seems the dark cloud over Miami just won't go away as they've celebrated their first win by losing their two most important offensive players in Walton and Preston Williams.
