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.

MIA RB Kenyan Drake - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Dallas Cowboys

There's a rumor going around Kenyan Drake could be the next Dolphins player to be traded. For now, he's still on the team, though he hasn't been doing a whole lot. He has just 75 scrimmage yards on the season. If you play in PPR leagues, he almost has the same amount of points off of receptions (7) as he does yards (7.5).

Not only is Drake struggling in a bad Miami offense, but he's also doing it in a timeshare. He's splitting touches with Kalen Ballage, and it's just not good for anybody involved. The best you can hope for with Drake is a similar situation to last week where he caught several passes, and maybe he can luck out with a touchdown. He's not much more than a lower-end RB3 option.
