Summary

There's some chatter about the Miami Dolphins using Kenyan Drake more this season, and it makes sense. Jay Ajayi was productive over the course of a season, but he wasn't consistently productive, and if that is the case again this year, head coach Adam Gase may need to mix things up. We don't know how good Drake is just yet, as he has had his hands on the ball just 42 times so far, but there is potential to a solid option in the backfield. Drake has pretty good size, and in college showed he was dangerous on passing routes out of the backfield and could make defenders miss. The team needs to see it on the field though, and nobody has quite yet. And before Drake gets a shot at Jaya Ajayi, he has to crawl over Damien Williams as well. The advantage he has over Williams, though, is Drake looks like a nice change of pace back for the team to look at when they need to give Ajayi a rest while Williams is a lackluster grinding back.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake returning punts (Sun Jun 11, 04:47 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake has been returning punts during offseason workouts and could compete with Jakeem Grant for the punt returner job during training camp.

Our View: Drake is larger than Grant and has good straight-line speed. Grant is more agile and can break in and out of his cuts faster. Keep an eye on this battle if you get bonus points for return yards in your league.
