From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 24): Even on a very successful day for the Dolphins offense, Drake wasn't included in the fun. He's a low ceiling flex right now, although in Week 4 he faces a Patriots run defense that was gashed by the Lions last week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs OAK (5 / 3 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

Despite being a close game and the potential to control the clock with the run game, the Dolphins were not interested in that. As a team they only ran the ball 14 times, with Drake only seeing 5 of those carries. By comparison, the Raiders ran the ball 32 times and their lead back carried the ball 19 times. As a whole, the Miami offense only ran 38 plays, 1 shy of the amount of times Derick Carr threw the ball. With all of that said, Drake could not find any room to run with his 5 carries. He had a single run that went for 3 yards and then 2 other carries that did not net a yard. He was also targeted in the passing game 4 times but only snagged 2 of those passes for just more than double his rushing yards. This is a game where you look at the stats and wonder how they won, especially since Drake did not seem to play any role at all in the final score.

2018 Week 2 vs NYJ (11 / 53 / 1 rush, 4 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)

After struggling in week one, Drake showed why he is the lead back this week. He was the most effective runner and out touched every other back for Miami. Drake is still splitting carries with Gore almost 50/50 but will create more opportunity if he continues to have games like this. Drake managed 4.8 yards per carry and ripped off a 20-yard run right up the middle to help run out the clock at the end of the game. Drake also contributed in the passing game and reclaimed a lot of the third down work he lost in week one. The biggest contribution for Drake this week was his 6-yard touchdown run. He took the ball right up the middle and powered his way in for the score. This was the first touchdown of the game and helped set the tone for the rest of the day.

2018 Week 1 vs TEN (14 / 48 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)

The Dolphins started out with Drake as the clear-cut lead back, but as the game wore on he seemed to lose steam and Frank Gore seemed to get going. Drake had 5 more carries than Gore and 13 fewer yards overall. He had one long run of 16-yards where he managed to break into the second level, but outside of that he was stopped at the line time and time again. Drake also did not contribute much to the receiving game either as his 3 receptions accounted for less than 20 yards. It was a very sloppy game for all parties involved and the weather really did not help things. Drake is still going to be the feature back going into next week, but if Gore continues to perform well, he may push the workload split closer to 50/50.

Dolphins | Week 2 injury report for Miami (Fri Sep 21, 02:03 PM) - Miami Dolphins S Reshad Jones (shoulder) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders. WR Danny Amendola (non-injury), LS John Denney (shoulder), RB Kenyan Drake (abdomen), RB Frank Gore (non-injury), CB Bobby McCain (knee), WR DeVante Parker (finger), DT Jordan Phillips (knee) and QB Ryan Tannehill (knee, ankle) all participated fully in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report. DE William Hayes (finger) was limited in practice Friday after participating fully in each of the previous two days but was also removed from the injury report.

Our View: Jones is an IDP stud, so IDP players need to be watching this situation, as does anyone with Jared Cook, whose matchup would be improved if Jones can't go on Sunday. The Dolphins D/ST would also lose some luster as a streamer if Jones is out.
