Summary

Drake had four solid-to-very-good games last season after taking over the starting job when Miami sent Jay Ajayi to Philadelphia between Weeks 8 and 9, including one spectacular Week 14 game against New England when he had 193 total yards. Those games also saw him touch the ball 14 or more times. But when he carried it less -- and even some in games where he saw more carries -- Drake struggled to find room behind an unstable offensive line, with no passing game to speak of and a team whose defense put the offense in a position of having to come from behind in the air. The hope is he can build on last season with a breakout third season. To that end, the Dolphins brought in the immortal Frank Gore. While the ageless back will have a role in the offense, it sounds very much like he has a bigger role mentoring Drake, who has embraced the veteran and his work ethic. While we do have some questions on whether or not Drake can continue to improve on his own, we do also have concerns about the offense -- which has been dysfunctional and featuring a shaky offensive line -- and defense -- which left the offense trailing too much -- that we expect to cap Drake's production. That keeps him as a lower-end RB2 with some upside, but a lower floor than we'd like. (May 31)
