Summary

Kenyan Drake has been thought to be a breakout candidate for the Dolphins for a few seasons but never seemed to get his fair share of touches. A mid-season trade to the Cardinals changed that as he quickly over took the RB1 spot from David Johnson and was an instant workhorse back for the Cardinals as he rushed for seven touchdowns in the final three games. With the Cardinals passing game looking to open up with QB Kyler Murray entering year two and the addition of WR DeAndre Hopkins, it could create even more room for Drake to continue on his 2019 late season success. Drake finished his 2019 season with 817 rushing yards and 8 rushing touchdowns along with 50 receptions for 345 receiving yards in 14 total games. In 8 games with the Cardinals, Drake posted 123 attempts for 643 rushing yards, 8 touchdowns, 28 receptions, and 171 receiving yards. Those numbers are for a half of a season with the Cardinals so now thinking of the possibilities of a full season with the Cardinals, Drake's 2020 outlook looks very promising. (April 30)

Latest News

Cardinals | Kyler Murray works out with teammates (Mon Jun 29, 05:06 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray worked out with a number of his teammates Monday, June 29. WR DeAndre Hopkins, WR Christian Kirk, RB Kenyan Drake, RB Chase Edmonds and TE Maxx Williams are among the players participating in the workout.

Our View: Just like a grip of other quarterbacks around the league, Murray is taking it upon himself to lead workouts. This virtual offseason is going to have an impact on teams, but these workouts can help further build or establish chemistry between a quarterback and his weapons. Murray is a QB1 for Fantasy GMs in 2020 and it wouldn't surprise us to see him finish as a top-5 fantasy quarterback.
