Summary

While 2018 was supposed to be a big season for Kenyan Drake as he took over the backfield, former head coach Adam Gase never seemed to want to rely on him, and his stats dropped in nearly every category save touchdowns, which increased by 1, and receptions. Drake was basically a change of pace back who caught a lot of balls. His 73 targets was the second highest total on the team and his 477 yards was the third highest total. With a new coach and new offensive coordinator in town, Drake has another chance to take the lead back job, and he says he's been hard at work studying other backs like James White, who new OC Chad O'Shea used to coach. On the downside, there's a big question mark under center and it's hard to say if either Ryan Fitzpatrick or Josh Rosen will keep defenses from stacking eight men in the box to contain Drake.
