Player Notes
Feb 16 10:43am ET

The Arizona Cardinals could trade RB David Johnson during the offseason if they decide to give impending free-agent RB Kenyan Drake the franchise tag or sign him to a contract extension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Spin: Johnson's current contract includes a substantial amount of guaranteed money, which would make it nearly impossible for the Cardinals to cut him, so they are likely to wind up eating a great deal of cash in any potential trade, even if a draft pick is included. Drake should be viewed as a high-end RB2 option in next season's fantasy drafts if he returns to Arizona, with Johnson likely falling into the low-end RB2 range if he winds up elsewhere.

From TheHuddle

Feb 14 5:20pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals want to retain running back Kenyan Drake, who will be a free agent in March, and placing the franchise tag on him is a possibility if they don't sign him to a long-term deal. Drake took over the starting gig from the injured David Johnson after the trade from Miami, and Johnson would likely play second fiddle to Drake in the backfield if the Cardinals don't trade him. In eight games last year, Drake ran the ball 123 times for 643 yards (5.2 yards per carry) with a career-high eight touchdowns. He fits the Cardinals much better from a fantasy perspective than he did in Miami, despite Arizona's shaky offensive line. If Johnson is on another team come next season, Drake will have RB1 upside.

From RotoBaller

Feb 14 3:53pm ET

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB Kenyan Drake has had some contract talks with the Cardinals since the end of the season, and general manager Steve Keim said he has told Drake that the team wants him back.

Fantasy Spin: Drake played very well after his trade to the Cardinals and rushed for 643 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games with Arizona. He probably would receive most of the touches at running back if he re-signs and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 29 9:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 26 of his 42 passes for 325 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and failed to gain a yard on two carries while losing a pair of fumbles in a 31-24 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 17. RB Kenyan Drake rushed 12 times for 60 yards and a touchdown and caught three of his four targets for 23 yards, and WR Christian Kirk caught seven of his 10 targets for 60 yards and carried once for six yards. WR Larry Fitzgerald caught four of his seven targets for 45 yards, WR Damiere Byrd caught seven of his eight targets for 74 yards and a touchdown, and TE Dan Arnold caught four of his six targets for 76 yards and a score. S Budda Baker logged 13 tackles, including eight solo stops, and half a sack, and LB Jordan Hicks finished with 13 tackles.

From TheHuddle

Dec 29 9:40pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake rushed 12 times for 60 yards and a touchdown in the season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He also caught three passes for 23 yards. Drake really had a tale of two seasons as he only rushed for 3.7 yards per carry in six games with the Miami Dolphins, but he ran for 5.2 yards per carry in eight with the Cards. He finished with 643 yards, eight rushing scores, 28 receptions and 171 receiving yards with the Cardinals. The team would like to re-sign him in the offseason, and he could be a low-end RB2 in point-per-reception drafts.

From RotoBaller

Dec 28 12:50am ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake might be one of the best starts at running back in Week 17. His quarterback, Kyler Murray (hamstring), is a game-time decision in what is a meaningless game in a season he has been among the most hit quarterbacks. The Cards will have to lean on Drake, who had four touchdowns last week. The Los Angeles Rams are a midrange matchup, and they may sit some starters as their season is over, too. View Drake as an RB1 in point-per-reception leagues.

From RotoBaller

Dec 22 9:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rumbled 24 times for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks, while adding three receptions for 18 yards on four targets. His big blow was an 80-yard rushing touchdown in the first half.

Fantasy Spin: Drake came over from the Miami Dolphins in the middle of the season and he pushed David Johnson to the bench and moved himself into a starring role in Kliff Kingsbury's offense. He might be an early-round fantasy pick if he sticks in Arizona heading into 2020 and beyond.

From TheHuddle

Dec 22 8:30pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake rushed 24 times for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. He also had three receptions for 18 yards. Drake has performed like an RB1 the last two weeks, and he could carry a heavy load again next week against the Los Angeles Rams. Quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) left the game Sunday and didn't return, and there isn't much reason to throw him out there in the season finale. Drake will be a high-end RB2 against the Rams next week.

From RotoBaller

Dec 20 8:00pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake put on a show for the ages last week with 22 rushes for 137 yards and four touchdowns. It vaulted him to 15th over the last five weeks in point-per-reception leagues after he did zilch the previous four weeks. Drake has been tapered back in the receiving game to feature him in the running game. That hurts his value a bit because that's his forte. The Seattle Seahawks are the seventh-best matchup for him this week, and he'll be a low-end RB2 with boom-or-bust upside.

From RotoBaller

Dec 20 1:30pm ET

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said that the team "would certainly love to have Kenyan Drake back" in 2020. The Cardinals simply didn't acquire Drake from the Dolphins this year just because both David Johnson and Chase Edmonds were injured at the time. Drake is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March, but Arizona could look to keep him around with Johnson's long-term status with the club up in the air. The 25-year-old has become Arizona's lead back because of Johnson's injury riddled campaign, and he's impressed given the opportunity. He went for a season-high 22 carries, 137 yards and four touchdowns in Week 15 against Cleveland and will be an RB2 this weekend against Seattle.

From RotoBaller

Dec 20 1:03pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said Friday that the team is hoping to retain the running back they traded for earlier this season. 'As far as waiting until after the season (to re-sign Drake), that's not necessarily the thing either. I would certainly love to have Kenyan Drake back,' Keim said Friday in an Arizona radio interview. 'I think he fits in this offense, and he really has given us a spark in many ways.'

Fantasy Spin: The rapid demise of David Johnson has been stunning this season, but the Cardinals continue to show they're committed to Drake after he received 23 of the team's 26 RB touches in last Sunday's four-TD fantasy blow-up game against the Browns. Bank on Drake sticking with Cards for dynasty and keeper purposes heading into the offseason.

From TheHuddle

Dec 15 11:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 22 times for 137 yards and four touchdowns and caught one pass for nine yards in a 38-24 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

Fantasy Spin: After a couple of lackluster outings, Drake erupted for the best game of his career. He has become a workhorse since being acquired by Arizona, logging at least 14 touches in all six games. He'll be a fringe RB2 option with upside against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16.

From TheHuddle

Dec 15 9:10pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake lit it up in Week 15 with 137 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He was the first player in franchise history to score four times on the ground since 1993. He also had a nine-yard reception. Drake hadn't done much the last month, but he really put one on Sunday. He'll be a low-end RB2 in point-per-reception formats next week against the Seattle Seahawks.

From RotoBaller

Dec 13 8:10pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake struggled the last four games after his breakthrough debut with the team. He rushed 50 times for 170 yards (3.4 yards per carry) and no touchdowns during the stretch. One small saving grace in point-per-reception formats is his 17 catches for a meager 69 yards. Those 17 points help put him in RB3 range during the stretch. He faces a formidable Cleveland Browns Defense that has allowed 81.6 rushing yards, 0.4 rushing scores, 4.8 receptions, 36.6 receiving yards and 0.2 receiving scores per game to RBs in the last five games. Drake is a flex option in PPR formats, but his rushing numbers haven't been good enough to use in non-PPR formats.

From RotoBaller

Dec 8 10:53pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 37 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: After a fast start with the Cardinals, Drake has been held to less than 40 rushing yards in three of the last four games. He continues to lead the backfield in touches, but Drake is a desperation flex play at this point.

From TheHuddle

Dec 8 8:10pm ET

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 37 yards and caught three balls for 30 yards in Week 14. He's still receiving twice as many touches as running back David Johnson, but he's not doing much with them. Johnson caught a touchdown pass this week, and there's a big enough sample size that he could start taking touches away from Drake. Drake will be a flex option against the Cleveland Browns next week.

From RotoBaller

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.
