Does anybody actually realize how good Kenyan Drake was a year ago? The split between the Dolphin and Cardinal production was drastic. I think people aren’t quite realizing just how good Drake was. With the 2020 Fantasy Football year coming, I don’t know how more people aren’t fawning over Drake.
Kenyan Drake played 8 games with Miami and 8 games with Arizona. Forget about the Miami part because they were clearly rebuilding with a poor offensive line. Drake went nuts with the Cardinals and a team that didn’t have a much better offensive line.
Drake averaged 5.2 yards per carry with Arizona. The man was money down the stretch. He also reeled in 28 receptions for 171 yards. Imagine if you take Drake’s numbers and double them. 1,286 yards, 16 touchdowns, 348 receiving yards. Hello… is anybody listening!
If Drake does that he could be the best running back in fantasy. We’re also talking about a team that should be more competitive so who’s to say a 300 carry season isn’t coming? Who’s to say he can’t top 50 receptions? Drake is going to have the lead role and there’s nobody to really share carries with here either. Chase Edmunds is what he is and Eno Benjamin just flat out sucks. This is Drake on the field the whole game here.
I don’t know how else to say it. Rankers don’t seem to be super high on Drake. I have him 7th on my list. Watch the games. What Drake did with Arizona is on an elite level. I don’t see how he doesn’t crack the top RB rankings at the end of the year minimum.
