Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs TEN (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Drake was once again a non-factor in Miami's loss to Tennessee, as he only saw two carries (for four yards) and two targets, both of which he converted for 16 yards. Drake was drafted to add an explosive element to the Miami backfield, but he has yet to receive enough volume for that to happen. On Sunday, it was running back Damien Williams who made the big play for the Dolphins, and now it seems that Williams is the preferred back of the two.

2016 Week 4 vs CIN (2 / 15 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

It was quite disappointing to see Drake once again lost in the shuffle of the Miami backfield, as he is the only of the group who possesses any type of game breaking ability. His number was only called twice, which resulted in two carries for 15 yards. It does not bode well for his stock moving forward that even with Arian Foster out with a hamstring injury, he is receiving only two carries, and no targets in the pass game on a night when Miami was playing from behind.

2016 Week 3 vs CLE (9 / 37 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Drake ran well on Sunday, upstaging fellow running back Jay Ajayi, for the second straight game. He gained a touch over four yards per carry, and caught both of his targets for eleven yards. Ajayi was expected to get the start, but it was Drake who was in on the first play of the game, where he was stopped for no gain on a rush off the left edge. Drake was drafted for his big play ability, and despite being efficient, he has yet to show off his game breaking ability in a regular season game. Drake's best drive came in the 2nd quarter, when he was given three straight rushes, for which he produced three, eight and eleven yards on consecutive carries.

2016 Week 2 vs NE (2 / 12 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)

Kenyan Drake gives the Dolphins offense something it lacks in all of its other backfield options, game breaking speed that will go a long way in relieving the weight put upon Ryan Tannehill's shoulders. In his first action as a pro Drake played well, but most importantly he did something fellow running back Ajayi was incapable of, he scored when given the opportunity in the red zone. In his only snap inside the ten yard line, Drake took a handoff on the right side of the field and showed great quickness in getting to the edge. He took advantage of solid blocking and was decisive in hitting the hole, but also showed good toughness in pushing two Patriot defenders over the goal line. Depending on the severity of Foster's hamstring injury, Drake will see his snaps increased with each passing week.
