Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
A risky first round pick, but a guy essentially in a contract year who could be a 3-down back in what I think will be one of the best offenses in the league this season.Down quite a bit. With the Lions drafting Swift and having an early Week 5 bye, I feel like Kerryon could lose snaps early in the season if he doesn't start out strong.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Drake should put up insane numbers this season in this offense. There are a lot of great options in the top-10 RBs right now, but Drake truly has the potential to explode this season. A top-5 finish is not out of the question.With D'Andre Swift now in town, it's hard to see Johnson having any sort of top-tier fantasy impact. Johnson will have upside if Swift gets injured, but these two might cancel out each other's true potential this upcoming season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Kenyan Drake is 26 years old, but only 456 career carries with a 4.8 YPC average. He was the RB3 weeks 9-16 with 20.3 ppr ppg. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
ARI RBs ranked 3rd in FAN PTS per Touch in 2019, and only D. Henry, CMC were better at RB in FAN PPG from Weeks 9-17 after Drake seized control of backfield 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
The Cardinals offence is incredible for running backs, with David Johnson, Chase Edmonds and Kenyan Drake all having explosive moments in 2019. With DJ gone and Chase the clear backup, it's Drake's job in 2020 so that should mean a clear-cut RB1 right? Well, maybe. Drake played five games with the Cards. He was incredible against mediocre Browns and Seahawks defence he gifted him 6 TDs but struggled in the other games, maxing out at 15 touches in each. With DeAndre Hopkins now in town, this offence seems to be transitioning towards something more pass-heavy, which is normal for a second-year coach and a sophomore QB. I like Drake, but only enough to take him in the mid-late second rounds and maybe a touch earlier in PPR.Kerryon Johnson came into 2019 with a massive amount of hype and disappointed a lot of fantasy owners. With just one game over 50 yards rushing, he injured himself in Week 7 and only returned in the last couple of weeks to do very little. He now shares the backfield with the far-more-talented D'Andre Swift and will likely fall into a backup role alongside Bo Scarborough, Ty Johnson and a dozen other Lions RB disappointments by the halfway point of the season. He's a hard pass for me.

ARZ threw to the RB 103 times last year. Assuming Edmonds gets his 20 or so like 2019, That should provide a safe floor for Drake in 2020. ARZ Kenyan Drake was a different beast: ARZ: 18.9 touches per game, 15.9PPG, 8 TDs MIA: 11.5 touches per game, 7.6PPG, 0 TDs Normally, I might be concerned about the limited sample, but the only person he didn't come in and immediately replace last year was of course not on the roster last year, 7th round pick, Eno Benjamin. His contract is interesting after 2020, in that there isn't one, so enjoy the rideIf he could ever finish a season he's been on pace for 200+ carries and at least each 30 targets the last 2 years. Just needs to survive the draft.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's crazy to see Kenyan Drake not getting the respect he deserved when he performed the way he did under Kliff Kingsbury last year. Since coming over in Week 9, he was the No. 4 running back through the remainder of the fantasy season, and the Cardinals liked him enough to move on from David Johnson and not draft a running back until the seventh round.We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 10-12 touches per game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Drake was a star for the Cardinals, in 8 games he had 814 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns in 2019. The Cardinals have signed him to a one-year deal and he should be the featured back with RB David Johnson gone. Drake is a RB1 with upside.
