Drake thrived in Arizona late last season, racking up 814 total yards and eight touchdowns in his final eight games. In half-PPR formats, he was the No. 4 fantasy RB in that span behind only Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry and Ezekiel Elliott. In 20 career games where he’s seen at least 10 carries, he has averaged 18.5 touches for 98 total yards and 0.65 touchdowns, which are solid fantasy RB1-type numbers.
With the transition tag, the Cardinals get the right of first refusal to match any offer that Kenyan Drake may make with another team. The 26-year old had an exceptional season in Arizona after being traded to the desert from Miami halfway through the 2019 season. This move should keep Drake with the Cards and he should work ahead of David Johnson in 2020.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (not injury related) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. No worries here. He's an RB1 against a Browns defense that got run over by Kenyan Drake last week.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) took full practice reps again Friday. He was removed from the injury report so he's good to go. We don't know how the Cardinals intend to use Edmonds, Kenyan Drake and David Johnson, but based on recent usage, they now view Drake as their lead back.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Edmonds' potential return would throw another wrench into the Arizona backfield. Kenyan Drake seems to be the safest play at this point.
