Player Notes
Dec 6 7:10pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake was extremely impressive in his first game with the club, but the next three games have been a mixed bag. Since then, he has rushed 39 times for 133 yards (3.4 yards per carry) and caught 14 receptions for 39 yards. The receptions are great for point-per-reception leagues, but David Johnson and his $9.75 million cap hit is still waiting in the wings. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been the second-best defense against running backs in PPR leagues the last five weeks. Drake is a low-end RB2, but he gives us pause if a fantasy playoff game is at stake.

From RotoBaller

Dec 3 9:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake played 51 offensive snaps to 15 for David Johnson and zero for Chase Edmonds Sunday, Dec. 1, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Spin: Drake has struggled to accomplish much since his Week 9 debut with the Cardinals, but he is receiving the lion's share of the work out of the backfield. He'll need to have a couple more big games before fantasy managers can trust him heading into the 2020 season.

From TheHuddle

Dec 2 12:03am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 31 yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in a 34-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13.

Fantasy Spin: The entire Arizona offense struggled in this one, but on the plus side for Drake continued to dominate the backfield touches. He figures to be the lead back in Week 14, but a matchup against a solid Pittsburgh defense makes him more of a flex option.

From TheHuddle

Dec 1 9:30pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 31 yards and caught two balls for 20 yards in Week 13. The Cardinals got down 20-0 at halftime to the Los Angeles Rams and couldn't recover as they ultimately fell 34-7. Drake's 15 touches more than doubled David Johnson's six, and Drake is clearly leading the backfield. He'll be a low-end RB2 in point-per-reception leagues.

From RotoBaller

Nov 30 12:40am ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake ate up all the looks in the backfield in the team's last game with 16 rushes for 67 yards and six grabs for 13 yards. He's averaging 5.2 yards per carry in three games with the Cards, which would be his best since his rookie season with 33 attempts in 2016. That's not a mirage, either, because the Cards' offensive line isn't among the better ones. Still, though, it's hard to fathom that the team would fall this deeply in love with him when they gave David Johnson a big deal to be their lead back. Drake has a midrange matchup against the Los Angeles Rams this week, and there's just something about him as an RB2 that feels risky. Come into Week 13 fortified at the position. He's golden as a flex, but something seems fishy about his usage rate the last couple of games.

From RotoBaller

Nov 19 9:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake played 88 percent of the offensive snaps against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Nov. 17. RB David Johnson played just nine total snaps, with all coming on offense.

Fantasy Spin: Drake has totaled 283 yards from scrimmage with a rushing touchdown in three games with the Cardinals. Arizona is on a bye this week which may allow David Johnson to get fully back up to speed and could even see Chase Edmonds return to the mix, but Drake heads into the break as the most appealing option all of a sudden.

From TheHuddle

Nov 17 10:23pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught six of his seven targets for 13 yards in a 36-26 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11.

Fantasy Spin: Drake has tallied at least 16 touches in all three games since joining Arizona, and David Johnson didn't touch the ball at all against the 49ers. Drake looks like the No. 1 back in Arizona, and he should be a RB2 the rest of the way if his current usage continues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 17 9:30pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught six receptions for 13 yards in Week 11. He was kept out of the end zone, but it was a solid showing in point-per-reception leagues against one of the best defenses in football. Running back David Johnson didn't have a rush or a target in the game for a mysterious reason, but one thing is for sure. Drake has taken over as the lead back, and he'll be an RB2 option after the bye week against the Los Angeles Rams.

From RotoBaller

Nov 17 11:20am ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake will start over David Johnson against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. Drake was acquired from the Miami Dolphins a few weeks ago and will presumably see more work than Johnson, who has been dealing with ankle and back injuries over the past month. The matchup against a tough 49ers Defense isn't great, although Drake played well against San Francisco a few weeks back, totaling 162 all-purpose yards and a touchdown. Drake can be used as a low-end RB2 while Johnson is a risky flex for Week 11.

From RotoBaller

Nov 17 11:03am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is expected to be treated as the starting running back for Week 11's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Spin: This is not good news for fantasy owners of David Johnson, who has experienced a disappointing season and did not appear to be anywhere near 100 percent during Week 10's contest versus Tampa Bay. Drake merits consideration as an RB2 this afternoon, especially in PPR fantasy formats.

From TheHuddle

Nov 15 3:30pm ET

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury isn't naming a starting running back for Week 11 against the 49ers, and he said it'll be "by committee" between running backs Kenyan Drake and David Johnson. The vagueness and uncertainty of the situation isn't doing fantasy owners any favors, and the Niners defense presents an incredibly tough matchup. Drake actually performed well against San Fran two weeks ago, but DJ also wasn't active. Based on how Johnson looked last week, we'd expect Drake to see more of the chances, but this is a situation to avoid if you can this weekend. Drake is more of an RB2/3, while Johnson will be a risky RB3/flex.

From RotoBaller

Nov 15 3:23pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RBs Kenyan Drake and David Johnson will be used in a committee in Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who noted to reporters Friday, Nov. 15, that being named a starter at running back in his offense doesn't matter because of sub-packages.

Fantasy Spin: The Cardinals have seemingly been playing games with fantasy owners at running back ever since David Johnson first hurt his ankle last month. Just about anyone who watched Johnson run in Week 10 could see he is nowhere close to 100 percent, so fantasy owners should be able to plug Drake into their lineups and feel relatively good about his ability to deliver RB2 production.

From TheHuddle

Nov 15 3:20pm ET

It looks as though Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake has jumped David Johnson on the depth chart. Drake was running receiving drills with first-team wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and Andy Isabella at practice. We'll have no idea if this is actually true until game day on Sunday against the 49ers, but Drake has looked better in his two games with the Cardinals and Johnson just can't seem to power through his injuries. The Cardinals have a game plan in mind involving both Drake and Johnson in their backfield this Sunday, but the mystery surrounding the two isn't making it easy on fantasy owners. Based on how DJ looked last week, it's hard to trust him in fantasy lineups as anything more than an RB3/flex, and the matchup this weekend is as tough as it gets.

From RotoBaller

Nov 11 10:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson was benched by head coach Kliff Kingsbury in the Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in favor of RB Kenyan Drake. Johnson lost a fumble in the third quarter and Kingsbury like what he saw from Drake. 'We just felt like with Drake, needed to get something going and kept him rolling,' Kingsbury said Monday, Nov. 11. 'The last couple weeks, practices, games (he) has brought a little pop to the run game, the pass game, and we felt like he was the guy to try and close the game out with.'

Fantasy Spin: Kingsbury added that the decision was his and had nothing to do with Johnson's recent rash of injuries. He said he'll figure out the best role for both Johnson and Drake over the next few weeks. It's bad news for Johnson's fantasy owners, as he already has struggled to live up to his early-round draft status.

From TheHuddle

Nov 10 7:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 10 times for 35 yards in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six receptions for just six yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Spin: David Johnson wasn't on the injury report with his ankle injury, but he clearly wasn't 100 percent with just five carries for two yards and one grab for eight yards. As long as Johnson isn't 100 percent it appears Drake is going to get some decent run. He is worth using as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams, particularly PPR formats.

From TheHuddle

Nov 8 7:10pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake is in a peculiar situation in Week 10. All-Pro running back David Johnson (ankle) is back, and the team has been coy in discussing their plans for the backfield. The matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers isn't a great one, either, but Drake could be leaned upon heavily in the passing game. The Cardinals have gotten very little from their wideouts this season, and you could see Drake lined up wide with Johnson in the backfield. If you're in a point-per-reception league, you should lean toward using Drake as a flex. The team said they didn't want to give Johnson 40 touches, and they gave Drake a lot more work than expected last week.

From RotoBaller

Nov 5 8:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake played 84% of his team's offensive snaps in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Spin: It was an excellent debut for the former member of the Miami Dolphins, but his role is guaranteed to shrink as soon as one of David Johnson or Chase Edmonds is able to return from injury. The Cardinals visit the top rush defense of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week, limiting Drake's appeal even if he retains his significant role for one more game.

From TheHuddle

Nov 1 7:00am ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake busted out for 110 rushing yards, 52 receiving yards and a touchdown against a stifling San Francisco 49ers Defense Thursday night. He had 15 rushes and four catches in what was supposed to be a "manageable" workload for a player they just acquired this week. Drake set the tone with a 36-yard run to open the game and later scored on the drive. The 49ers settled in and kept Drake under control the rest of the game. The Cards have about 10 days before they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Running back David Johnson (ankle) should be healthy and be someone for Drake to share the work with. Both backs would be in the RB2 range for the game.

From RotoBaller

Nov 1 12:33am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake ran 15 times for 110 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, Oct. 31. Drake also caught four passes for 52 yards.

Fantasy Spin: Talk about making a positive first impression. With David Johnson and Chase Edmonds both inactive, Drake stepped in and racked up 162 total yards and a score after being acquired earlier this week. Despite that, it's anyone's guess what the backfield will look like in Week 10 against the Bucs based on whether or not Johnson and/or Edmonds are able to return. Keep an eye out for injury updates.

From TheHuddle

Oct 31 5:53pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake 'will get major run' Thursday, Oct. 31, against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Fantasy Spin: Drake had a single-game high of 44 rushing yards this season with the Miami Dolphins. The 49ers defense should stifle expectations for him in his Cardinals debut, but he can be used as a desperation flex play, if needed.
