Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs BAL (4 / 12 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

It was a bad day for the Miami rushing attack as the team totaled 12 carries for 21 yards total. Drake led all runners with 12 yards on the ground, and 9 of those yards came on a single play. He also chipped in 2 catches on 3 targets with a long of 10 yards. Drake did not look explosive and was often met in the back field by a Ravens defender before he even had a chance to find a hole. Drake does not have to worry about competition from another back as the next closest running back had -1 yards this week. This team is going to be playing from behind a lot this year and that is going to make it difficult for Drake to get anything going.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake on trade block? (Sun Sep 15, 12:22 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake has been the subject of trade talks with other teams this week.

Our View: Drake can help a lot of running back depth charts, but there aren't any lead back openings right now. His value can only be helped by a departure from Miami.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake not concerned with contract (Wed Sep 11, 10:12 PM) - 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.

Our View: The Dolphins have a ton of work to do and it won't all happen this season. Drake should continue to be their top back and he might have some good games here and there. He played 27 snaps in Week 1 against the Ravens and didn't do much with the touches he received.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake to be workhorse in Week 1 (Wed Sep 4, 09:42 PM) - 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.'

Our View: Drake is the lead back and Kalen Ballage is going to serve as his backup. This is a 180 from the direction things were heading just a couple of weeks ago. Things change quickly around here in the NFL, but so long as Drake is healthy he could be their top back. That makes him a low-end RB2 or flex play on a weekly basis.
