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.
