Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Don't forget how the Ravens used Dobbins/Edwards the last few games of the 2020 season and into the playoffs last year. Gus Bus will have a role, and the Ravens love to run. He's one of my favorite RB3/FLEX guys this year. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gus Edwards quietly put together a very solid season last year. He didn't get as much publicity or praise as JK Dobbins, but Edwards simply got the job done time and time again. With Mark Ingram now officially out of the picture, it's Edwards and Dobbins as the two main options in this dynamic offense that is committed to their run game for 2021. Edwards' usage might not be the most predictable week in and week out, but he's an extremely smart investment for your fantasy roster due to his upside if something were to happen to Dobbins. If you can get him as your RB4 or RB5 on your roster, that's simply cheating. My Very Early Projection: 161-819-7 rushing & 10-87-0 receiving.Drake signed a massive deal - for a RB - in free agency to come to Las Vegas, but he's certainly going to take a dip in production from what we've seen over the past couple of years. He'll be heavily involved as a receiver all over the formation in this offense, but it's unlikely to lead to consistent fantasy production week after week. Drake's now in the territory of a low-upside FLEX play that will need Jacobs to miss time with an injury to see his workload increase.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Is it possible that Edwards is another version of Raheem Mostert? Someone who's never heavily used, but one who kills it with every opportunity he gets. He's averaged at least 5.0 yards per carry in each of his three seasons with the Ravens. Now that Mark Ingram is gone, it's possible we see Edwards top his 144-carry career mark from 2020, but the real issue is that he's obsolete in the passing game, totaling just 23 targets over 43 games. He's never caught more than two passes in a game. If J.K. Dobbins were to miss time, Edwards would be a solid RB2 in fantasy, though he'd be a bit more touchdown-dependent than most in that range.The marriage between the Raiders and Drake is an odd one, as Drake was somewhat of a Josh Jacobs doppleganger last year. They both finished between 3.9 and 4.0 yards per carry, both scored double-digit rushing touchdowns, and both were extremely limited in the passing game. The Raiders have continually given guys like DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard, and Devontae Booker work alongside Jacobs over the last two years, so Drake is going to get mixed in quite heavily, and my guess would be that the passing game is where he gets most of it. You may not remember, but Drake was considered a solid third-down back early in his career with the Dolphins, and has two seasons with 50-plus catches on his NFL resume. It's tough to see him eating into Jacobs' carry totals a whole lot, especially after the way he looked with the Cardinals in 2020, but he should offer low-upside flex value due to his work in the passing game.

Returns to BAL w/ no Ingram = More Gus Bus than you'd prob likeGross spot behind a dismantled Raiders OL as Josh Jacobs' second-fiddle -- but projected out highly due to high receiving upside
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Edwards has never had less than 133 carries, and has never averaged under 5.0 ypc, yet he's rarely fantasy relevant. 
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
 Kenyan Drake started the season in a walking boot, but once he was healthy, he had a nice second half for the Cardinals, including some great work in the red zone. Now, he's in a bizarre time share with Josh Jacobs in Las Vegas and his role is pretty undefined at this point. The Raiders backfield is the poster child for why you take clear cut RB1's early. An injury to Jacobs could open up a huge opportunity for Drake, but for now it seems like a situation where no one is set up for fantasy success.
