Oct 14 11:40am ET

Coming off a bye week, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake seemed finally set up for success in Week 6, with the Dolphins facing a Washington Redskins Defense that was allowing over 400 yards of offense per game. However, Drake only set his owners up for another dud, rushing 10 times for forty yards in a 17-16 Miami loss, and failing once again to score for the first time in 2019. He was slightly more valuable in PPR leagues - catching six balls for 30 yards - but was also out-gained by backup Mark Walton totaling 75 yards on 11 touches. Drake may have been drafted as an RB3, but he isn't giving his owners any reason to start him going forward, particularly facing a tough Buffalo defense in Week 7, and seemingly in a partial timeshare with Walton.

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 10 times for 40 yards in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins and he added six grabs for 30 yards on a game-high nine targets.

Fantasy Spin: The Dolphins were finally involved in a close game for the entirety of the day, and Drake's touches were up as a result. It was just the second time he has had double-digit carries in 2019, and the total touches were a season high. Still, the production was rather marginal, and he remains more of a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option at this point.

Oct 11 1:00pm ET

Like the rest of his winless team, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has been a fantasy dud in 2019 thus far, totaling just 220 yards and zero touchdowns in four games. The good news is that after getting only six touches in Week 1, Drake's usage has been steadily increasing, with him receiving 11, 15, and 12 touches respectively, in the three games since. The Dolphins will get their easiest matchup of the year in Week 6, as the Washington Redskins have yet to win a game and are seemingly in disarray, having recently fired head coach Jay Gruden. Given his increasing volume of touches and the Redskins having the league's eighth-worst defense against the run, Drake is finally in the conversation for RB3 in Week 6.

From RotoBaller

Oct 5 10:43pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake will be 'the clear No. 1 back' following the Week 5 bye, in the opinion of Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Spin: Drake's carries have been trending in the right direction, and he's rushed a combined 21 times the last two games after logging just 10 total carries the first two games. His ceiling is limited by the state of Miami's offense, but if he continues to see 15-plus touches per game, Drake should at least be a volume-based flex option.

From TheHuddle

Oct 1 12:10pm ET

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake did little in a 31-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, rushing nine times for 44 yards and no scores. He also caught 3-of-5 targets for 29 yards as the Miami offense actually moved the ball well in the first half, with Drake busting a 19-yard screen pass and a 10-yard run. But Drake - and the entire Miami offense - was bottled up in the second half and was even replaced at one point by backup Mark Walton after fumbling. Drake's status as a low-end flex option continues to get lower and lower and there are fewer and fewer reasons to keep him rostered as the Dolphins head into their bye in Week 5.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 10:03pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake posted nine runs for 44 yards in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added three grabs for 29 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Spin: Drake wasn't great, but 4.9 yards per carry isn't bad, either. If only the Dolphins could stay in a game and remain committed to the run longer than a quarter or two. The Dolphins are off in Week 5 before resuming play in two weeks.

From TheHuddle

Sep 28 4:50pm ET

With only 147 total yards and no touchdowns on the season, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has been a fantasy dud so far in 2019. There are a few things that his owners can take heart in though, such as his snap rate and touches increasing in each game. Unfortunately, those snaps and touches are still coming on a Miami team that struggles to move the ball and is currently featuring a revolving door of offensive lineman due to a rash of injuries. While Drake's value is rising as his usage increases, he remains nothing but a low-end flex option going into a Week 4 matchup against a Chargers Defense that held the Houston offense to 39 rushing yards in Week 3.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 11:30pm ET

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake saw his highest usage of the year in a 31-6 loss to the Cowboys but it meant little for his fantasy line, as he ended with just 38 yards on 12 carries. Drake also added three catches for 34 yards for a total of 15 touches in comparison to fellow back Kalen Ballage's nine, making him seemingly still the leader of the Miami backfield. But facing another difficult test in a Week 4 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, Drake is a low-end flex option only for the most optimistic or desperate of owners.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 6:43pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 44 yards in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added three receptions for 34 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Spin: Drake had 16 total touches, easily his largest volume of the season, as the Dolphins weren't getting their doors blown off until at least the second half this week. If the Dolphins can ever play a close game then Drake has some staying power as a fantasy option, at least as a RB3 or flex fantasy option. The Dolphins host the Chargers in Week 4.

From TheHuddle

Sep 15 12:50pm ET

While there are reports spreading that the Miami Dolphins have had trade talks with other teams surrounding running back Kenyan Drake this week, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero is reporting that the team has had zero conversations with other teams about trading him, according to a club source. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Dolphins traded Drake, as they've already sent several others packing this year and are expected to trade former first-rounder Minkah Fitzpatrick soon. On the worst team in football, Drake has become nothing more than an unappealing RB3/flex, although a trade out of Miami could make him more attractive to fantasy owners. If he were to be dealt, Kalen Ballage would be the leader of this backfield.

From RotoBaller

Sep 15 12:33pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake has been the subject of trade talks with other teams this week.

Fantasy Spin: Drake was held to only 12 yards last week and will continue to split time with Kalen Ballage as long as he remains with the Dolphins. He probably is only a flex option at this point, but his fantasy value could increase if he is traded.

From TheHuddle

Sep 11 10:23pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake saw a few of his teammates receive new contracts, but the impending free agent running back has not received an offer from the team. He is not bothered by the fact. 'The things I do right now are going to put me in the best position to get the things I want at the end of the day,' Drake said Wednesday, Sept. 11. While he has not asked for a trade, the team could consider dealing him before the league trade deadline.

Fantasy Spin: Drake is the No. 1 back in Miami, but he's on a bad football team which could find themselves behind early and often, forcing the team to scrap the ground-based attack more in favor of the passing game. That's bad news for fantasy owners, and for a guy looking to roll up stats for a big payday in the offseason. Treat him as more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option since he is the lead back.

From TheHuddle

Sep 8 5:10pm ET

Much like the rest of the offense, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake didn't do much to help his fantasy owners in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens 59-10. Drake may be the starter in Miami but he only carried the ball four times compared to the five carries of backup Kalen Ballage even after coach Brian Flores claimed that Drake would get "a lot of touches" in Week 1. It was encouraging to see Drake used in the passing game, catching two of his three targets for 15 yards, but the owners that took him around his 76 ADP in NFBC have to be worried about just what kind of production will be possible in a bad Miami offense.

From RotoBaller

Sep 4 9:53pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is expected to be involved heavily in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. 'I think he's both physically and mentally ready,' head coach Brian Flores said Wednesday, Sept. 4. 'This is a guy who has as much talent as we have on our team. He's fast. He's physical. He's explosive. He makes a ton of plays, and we're looking forward to getting him a lot of touches this week.'

Fantasy Spin: That's music to the ear of fantasy owners, as Drake sounds like he'll be the workhorse, with Kalen Ballage spelling him occasionally. Treat Drake as a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option, as long as he gets off to a quick start and doesn't let Ballage carve into his workload.

From TheHuddle

Sep 4 8:00pm ET

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake (foot) is expected to play in Week 1 against the Ravens and get plenty of touches. "We're looking forward to giving him a lot of touches this week," head coach Brian Flores said on Wednesday. Drake will open the season well ahead of Kalen Ballage for the lead-back role, and the Dolphins would be smart to keep it that way all year as long as Drake is healthy. Even with an expected heavy workload this Sunday, though, Drake is more of an RB3/flex while going up against a defense that was extremely stingy against the run in 2018.

From RotoBaller

Sep 4 11:10am ET

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake is listed as the team's No. 1 running back on their official depth chart ahead of Kalen Ballage. Drake finished the 2018 season with 120 carries for 535 yards and four touchdowns. He also had a career-high 53 receptions for 477 yards and five additional scores. Drake isn't all that enticing from a fantasy perspective because of the fact that Ryan Fitzpatrick is starting under center to begin the season and Miami lacks a true standout receiver. But Drake does have big-play ability every time he touches the football and is more attractive in PPR leagues. Consider him an RB3/flex for Week 1 at home against a tough Ravens Defense.

From RotoBaller

Aug 28 12:03pm ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake could be used as trade bait as the Dolphins pursue Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney.

Fantasy Spin: It's food for thought as the Texans lost RB Lamar Miller (knee) for the season, but they already acquired a receiving back in Duke Johnson. Drake hasn't shown that he can be the bellcow, and it's a questionable fit with Johnson. If Drake remains with Miami, he's an RB3 with Kalen Ballage slightly under him as an RB4.

From TheHuddle

Aug 27 11:50pm ET

The Miami Dolphins might consider shipping running back Kenyan Drake and wide receiver Kenny Stills to the Texans for pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney. It's just speculation right now, but Houston is in need of running back healthy after losing Lamar Miller (knee) for the year, and wide receiver Keke Coutee (ankle) might not be ready for the start of the season. At running back in Miami, Patrick Laird, Mark Walton and fullback Chandler Cox are clear favorites to join Drake and Kalen Ballage on the 53-man roster. Myles Gaskin could head to the practice squad, while Kenneth Farrow is likely to be cut. If Drake is dealt to Houston, Ballage would become a lot more interesting in fantasy.

From RotoBaller

Aug 26 12:50pm ET

Miami Dolphins running backKenyan Drake (foot) returned to practice Monday. He looked sharp in his cuts during drills. Drake left the door open for Kalen Ballage to usurp him as the lead back, but Ballage didn't do enough with the opportunity. Ballage rushed 12 times for 17 yards in the third preseason game. Drake is more of a receiving threat than Ballage, which gives him a leg up. However, Ballage should be a factor on early downs. Expect Drake to have a slightly larger share of the work. Drake serves as a high-end RB3 in point-per-reception leagues, and Ballage is an RB4.

From RotoBaller

Aug 26 11:43am ET

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (foot) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Spin: Drake's stock rises while Kalen Ballage's descends, but Ballage might still wind up being the one to own for the long haul. Drake is an RB3, and Ballage is teetering on the RB3/RB4 boundary.
