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 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kenyan Drake had a fantastic first game with the Cardinals. After arriving only days prior in a trade, Drake carried the ball 15 times for 110 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers last week. He added four receptions for 52 yards receiving and was one of the biggest fantasy surprises of the week. Dolphins fans who complained for the last several seasons about Drake being misused definitely feel vindicated heading into Week 10.

This week, Drake may struggle to see that many touches again. The Buccaneers are terrible against the pass, but are ranked first in aFPA to opposing running backs this season and have a potent enough offense to keep the Cardinals throwing the ball. Drake will be hard to sit after a breakout performance, but with David Johnson expected to be back in action as well, 19 touches seem unlikely. Treat Drake with caution, and we have him ranked as an RB3 option this week.
