Scouting report

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams

Kenyan Drake scored the team’s only touchdown last week in a bitter loss to the 49ers. He had a full workload with 18 carries and a pair of receptions, but ended up with just 50 total yards from scrimmage as the offense struggled to move the ball. Drake has a nice floor in most weeks, due to his workload, though he’s only had 100 or more rushing yards in two games this season. His 10 touchdowns have helped him stay fantasy relevant.

This week, Drake faces a tough Rams defense that ranks third in the league in rushing yards allowed per game, and fifth in aFPA to opposing running backs. Scary matchup for a guy who already has some ceiling concerns, but we have him as a low-end RB2 option anyway due to workload.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. San Francisco 49ers

Kenyan Drake was limited to just 10 carries and a pair of receptions for 40 yards last week in a victory over the Eagles. It was concerning to see Chase Edmonds out-touch him – 11 carries and three receptions – but Drake has been the main back all season, and it’s too early to be too alarmed. The Cardinals were in passing sets a lot and that favors Edmonds’ skill set.

This week, Drake faces a 49ers defense that ranks 14th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Game script should be more positive for the Cardinals this week facing the 49ers’ banged-up offense, so expect Drake’s touches to be more in line with his season average this week. We have him ranked as a low-end RB2 option.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Kenyan Drake had another quality outing last week with 23 carries and a reception for a total of 90 yards and a touchdown. Drake hasn’t been very active in the passing game this year – just 24 targets all season – but he has nine touchdowns and averages 16.75 carries per game. That gives him a high floor for fantasy owners wanting steady production from the RB2 spot.

This week, Drake faces an Eagles defense that ranks 14th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Drake should see his usual workload, making him a solid RB2 option in all league formats.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at New York Giants

Kenyan Drake had 10 carries and a pair of receptions for a total of 58 yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Rams last week. It was the least amount of touches Drake has had all season, but it was still double-digits and he still turned in a solid day overall, thanks to the touchdown. Drake is a high-floor option due to his workload, and it was a tough matchup where the Cardinals fell behind.

This week Drake faces a Giants defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Chris Carson had a strong day against them last week and the Giants’ offense isn’t prolific enough to expect the Cardinals to abandon the run this week. As such, Drake should get a full workload and put up quality RB2 numbers.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Kenyan Drake was held to 3.5 yards per carry against the Patriots last week, but he found the end zone twice and now has seven touchdowns in 10 games. He’s averaging 18.3 touches per game, making him a solid RB2 option every week, based on workload alone.

Drake has a tough matchup this week against a Rams defense that ranks sixth in aFPA to opposing running backs this season. Still, expect another busy day for Drake, giving him a solid floor. We have him ranked as a low-end RB2 option and he should be active in most leagues.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at New England Patriots

Kenyan Drake was held to just 2.6 yards per carry against a tough Seattle run defense last week, but he found the end zone and added 31 receiving yards on four receptions. His 15 touches are encouraging, particularly after getting 17 the week before. When Drake is healthy, it seems he’ll continue to get the bulk of the workload in the backfield, with Chase Edmonds serving as a complementary back.

This week, Drake faces a Patriots defense that ranks 18th in aFPA to opposing running backs. With a nice matchup in store for him, expect Drake to put up quality RB2 numbers as the Cardinals try to come back from a tough loss in Week 11. As long as Drake is getting double-digit touches, he has value. Start him.

ARI RB Kenyan Drake - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Seattle Seahawks

Kenyan Drake returned to action last week against the Bills and gained 100 yards on 16 carries. He looked healthy, which means he should resume his job as the lead back, with Chase Edmonds continuing to play a complementary role. Drake hasn’t been consistent this season, but in the games he’s played, he’s averaged 17.9 touches per game, giving him value.

This week, Drake faces a Seahawks defense that ranks 15th in aFPA to opposing running backs. They held Drake to just 2.4 yards per carry a few weeks ago, so it’s not a great matchup for the Cardinals’ running backs. Drake should still get enough work to put up fringe RB2 numbers though, and he always has the potential to bust a big one. Consider him a bit of a boom-bust option this week.
