Draft note
by John Paulsen
The 27-year-old Drake joins the Raiders after a 264-touch, 1,092-yard, 10-touchdown season with the Cardinals. Those stats don’t really matter all that much, since he’ll share the backfield with Josh Jacobs and is expected to take on more of a pass-catching role (after catching just 25 passes last season). It was a curious signing that mainly served to submarine Jacobs’ fantasy value heading into 2021. Drake is unlikely to offer weekly starter value, but could post high-end RB2 numbers if anything were to happen to Jacobs.

LV RB Kenyan Drake - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Kenyan Drake played 48% of the snaps Monday night against the Ravens, carried the ball six times, and caught five of five targets for a total of 70 yards from scrimmage. That looks like a reasonable expectation for him moving forward and seems like the role he was brought in to play.

Drake has a tough matchup against the Steelers this week, who ranked fifth in aFPA to opposing running backs last year. They held the Bills to just 16 points in Week 1 and it’ll be tough for the Raiders to put up numbers against that front-seven. The Steelers should keep the Raiders in passing situations this week, which should allow Drake to rack up targets again, giving him some low-end flex upside in PPR formats.

Update: With Josh Jacobs out for Week 2, Drake stands for some increased volume and upside. Jon Gruden said he thinks this is an opportunity for Peyton Barber, so don't get too excited, but Drake definitely has some flex value with some potential increased touches.
