What to Watch For
Following RB Jay Ajayi's trade to Philadelphia, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams shared the load to combined for 86 yards and no TDs in Week 9. Miami has yet to score a rushing TD this entire season.

Drake is projected to finish with 51 yards on 4 carries -- averaging 0.4 TDs per sim. Williams is projected to finish with 25 yards on 6 carries -- averaging 0.2 TDs per sim. Even both of them combined don't provide much confidence in the Dolphins scoring on the ground this week.

17 has been the magic number for Carolina over the past few weeks, with three straight opponents scoring exactly that.

The Dolphins are projected to score 16 points Monday night.
