Draft note
by John Paulsen
Despite the feeling that the fantasy community views his 2018 campaign as a failure, Drake finished the season as the No. 17 back in half-PPR formats. He hasn’t been a consistent producer thus far in his career, but that was mainly due to his irregular usage under former HC Adam Gase. There’s a new regime in town and the team let Frank Gore walk, vacating 156 carries in the backfield. Kalen Ballage has actually been running ahead of Drake in camp, though Drake got the start in the team’s first preseason game and I think Drake’s talent will win out in the end. If he gets the workload, he’ll produce. In 12 games where he received at least nine carries in the last two seasons, he has averaged 17.8 touches for 96 total yards and 0.50 touchdowns per game (on 4.66 yards per carry). Even if Ballage begins the season as the starter, Drake will likely have a big role, especially in the passing game. This Dolphins team is likely to spend most of the season trailing on the scoreboard, which enhances Drake’s outlook as a very good pass-catching back. I’ll gladly take Drake on an injury discount in the seventh round.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams

Kenyan Drake had another monster game last week in a victory over the Seahawks, carrying the ball 24 times for 166 yards and two touchdowns. He was nicked up during the game, but he returned and continued to look effective, so there are no concerns with his health going into the final week of the season. He has six touchdowns over his last two games and is averaging 15.9 carries per game since arriving in Arizona.

You can run on the Rams. They rank 16th in aFPA to opposing running backs this year and as long as you’re not running at Aaron Donald, running backs can get to the edge and do some damage. Drake has been too productive the last two weeks to ignore, and his touches have been high enough to raise his floor, despite being held to just 2.4 yards per carry the last time these two teams met. We have him as a solid RB2 option and he should be active in all leagues.
