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 looms, but I think Drake is better and he has proven that he can produce when given a good workload. 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). If he scores at that rate, he’ll likely finish in the top 10 at his position. He’s a fine value in the late fourth/early fifth of fantasy drafts.

MIA RB Kenyan Drake - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Kenyan Drake had an underrated year in fantasy last season, finishing with over 1,000 scrimmage yards and nine touchdowns. And he put up those numbers despite the Dolphins being 26th in points per game, and last in plays per game. With Frank Gore out of the picture (who had 156 carries last season), Drake should have more opportunities in 2019 to succeed. Drake also has a new coaching staff and offensive system in place, which should help.

Fantasy Downside
While we expect Drake’s production to go up with increased touches, we haven’t actually seen it happen. He didn’t have any games with 15 or more carries last season and had just five games with 10+ carries despite playing the entire season. And even though Gore is gone, the Dolphins still have Kalen Ballage and drafted Myles Gaskin.

2019 Bottom Line
Overall, Drake is set up to be a sleeper option this season. His ADP is well below where we have him ranked, which is a lower-tier RB1. Ballage and Gaskin offer a little competition, but Drake clearly looks like the most talented back on this roster. With little offensive weapons, look for the Dolphins to lean on one of their top playmakers both on the ground and as a receiver.
