  NFL | Mark Walton suspended eight games    Sat Nov 14, 10:45 AM

Free-agent RB Mark Walton (Dolphins) was suspended for the next eight games by the National Football League Friday, Nov. 13, meaning that he won't be eligible to play for any team for the remainder of the 2020 season. However, the reason for the suspension is unknown.

Footballguys view: Walton has natural talent as a runner and is still only 23 years old, but these off-field issues have held him back as a pro. He will be a long shot to ever play a snap again in the NFL.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton suspended    Mon Nov 4, 05:03 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's conduct and substance abuse policies.

Footballguys view: Walton had some legal problems this offseason and that's where this suspension comes from. The Dolphins roll forward with Kalen Ballage as their lead back. Patrick Laird or Myles Gaskin could get some work as reserve runners.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton quiet in Week 9    Sun Nov 3, 06:39 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton rushed for 29 yards on 12 carries against the New York Jets in Week 9. He also caught three passes for 12 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins had their best offensive day of the year and the starting running back was still a disappointment in fantasy lineups. Walton is only an emergency play with a low ceiling.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton the workhorse?    Sat Nov 2, 09:50 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton 'has the keys' to the backfield and will remain the 'workhorse' for the remainder of the season, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Walton still has a low ceiling because of the offense and team he's part of, but he's at least worth a flex against the Jets decimated defense.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton takes on league-high workload    Tue Oct 29, 08:35 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton's 87% of the offensive snaps played in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers was a higher percentage than any other running back in the NFL. Eight RBs played more offensive snaps overall, but they didn't receive as high of a percentage on their respective teams.

Footballguys view: Walton is the clear lead back for the Dolphins. He's got a good all-around skill set but Kalen Ballage does get onto the field to steal touchdown opportunities when the team is close to pay dirt. Walton has flex appeal just based on his workload.

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton rushed for 66 yards on 14 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Walton appears to be the most valuable Dolphins back to roster at this point and could become more reliable if Kenyan Drake is traded before the deadline. He should be picked up in all leagues.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton impressing coach    Tue Oct 8, 09:10 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton drew praise from offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea Tuesday, Oct. 8, for how he's played in the first half of the season. 'I think that Mark has really impressed me,' O'Shea said. 'He has impressed me in both running the football and in his pass receiving. I think he runs hard. I think he does a good job and takes pride in catching the football. He certainly has a skill set that is unique that he can do both.'

Footballguys view: Walton was a dynamic college running back for the University of Miami and we're monitoring him closely in dynasty formats. The Dolphins are looking for players they can build with and perhaps Walton can get more involved in that backfield as the season goes on. He's behind Kenyan Drake right now, but we could see him get more opportunities if he stays healthy and produces.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton making push for roster spot    Thu May 30, 04:13 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton has 'a real chance to beat out seventh-round pick Myles Gaskin for the No. 3 job' and 'impressed as a receiver during OTA sessions,' according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: Walton is a talented and natural runner. We'll monitor him in dynasty formats so long as he stays out of trouble off the field.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton among Miami signees    Sun May 12, 12:52 PM

Free-agent RB Mark Walton (Bengals) and CB Jamar Summers (Steelers) and undrafted rookie C Kirk Barron signed with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, May 12.

Footballguys view: Walton was a fourth-round pick in 2018 and certainly has the skills and physical ability to make the Dolphins roster as a third-down back. Seventh-round pick Myles Gaskin might have a tough time outplaying Walton, who was released by Cincinnati after multiple offseason arrests.

  Dolphins | Mark Walton getting a look from Miami    Fri May 10, 02:25 PM

Free-agent RB Mark Walton (Bengals) is trying out with the Miami Dolphins during their rookie minicamp Friday, May 10.

Footballguys view: Walton had multiple arrests this offseason, which was enough to earn his release. He was successful with the Hurricanes down in Miami as a collegiate player and the Dolphins have a depth chart spot or two up for grabs at running back, so this is something to monitor.

  Bengals | Mark Walton let go    Sat Apr 6, 01:06 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Mark Walton was waived Saturday, April 6.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Walton has been arrested three times in 2019 so far. His most recent arrest happened last week for carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession, and reckless driving. He's a talented runner but this off-field trouble was too much for the Bengals....'nuff said. Walton will struggle to find another chance in the league when all these legal troubles are behind him.

  Bengals | Mark Walton arrested in Miami    Thu Apr 4, 12:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Mark Walton surrendered to North Miami-Dade police on Thursday, April 4, and will face felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving, according to a Miami Herald report. The arrest stemmed from a high-speed car chase that occurred March 12 and ended with Walton fleeing from the police on foot.

Footballguys view: It's the third time Walton has been arrested this year. Walton was a fourth-round pick of the Bengals in the 2018 NFL draft. He has natural talent as a runner but these off-field issues are likely to get him released by the Bengals.

  Bengals | Cincinnati's Week 12 injury report    Fri Nov 23, 01:00 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Josh Malone (hamstring) and LB Nick Vigil (knee) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns. WR A.J. Green (toe) and CB Dre Kirkpatrick remained out of practice Friday, Nov. 23, but are listed as questionable. OT Cordy Glenn (back) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. CB Darqueze Dennard (calf), S Clayton Fejedelem (shoulder), DE Michael Johnson (calf), RB Mark Walton (illness) and S Shawn Williams (hamstring) participated fully in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Bengals should have better help in the slot with Dennard back, but their linebackers are still weak heading into a matchup with Nick Chubb.
