2018 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick out of Miami, Walton has plenty of traits that could allow him to have a long and fruitful NFL career. His powerful running style and low center of gravity allow him to bang through tacklers and gain yards after contact, potentially making him a short-yardage and goal-line option for the Bengals. He also showed good receiving and blocking skills in college, allowing him to stay on the field in all situations. An ankle injury last year sapped his explosiveness, however, and his lack of vision in finding and exploiting holes could be a liability at the next level. He won't be thrust into a big role right away in Cincinnati, as Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard have the top two spots on the depth chart locked down. If injuries or ineffectiveness open touches, Walton could prove to be an effective jack-of-all-trades. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Walton was arrested Thursday for the third time this year following felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving -- all stemming from a March 12 incident near Miami. The 2018 fourth-round pick is unlikely to draw interest from NFL teams until he deals with his legal issues.
