Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake could spend more time as receiver with Raiders

Vic Tafur with The Athletic is reporting that Kenyan Drake may be playing some of his snaps in Las Vegas as a wide receiver.

Fantasy Impact:

This is great news for those that are rostering Josh Jacobs as the immediate reaction was that the two running backs would be in a timeshare. Drake has shown flashes as a great receiver out of the backfield, but is only averaging 3.0 targets per game throughout his career. Because Jacobs has struggled as a pass-catcher so far, there's a good chance that we'll see both backs on the field at the same time. A lot of this could be coach-speak, but Drake could certainly start inching up PPR draft boards if he is practicing with the receivers in summer camp.
