Kenyan Drake continues to play second-fiddle in Week 3

Kenyan Drake saw 11 touches on Sunday, totalling 57 yards with three of those touches being receptions.

Fantasy Impact:

The more glaring news here was Drake being benched mid-game for teammate Peyton Barber on third downs. With starting running back Josh Jacobs out for a second consecutive week, Kenyan Drake figured to continue seeing his normal third-down work but after "missing a pass-blocking assignment" per HC Jon Gruden, Drake was benched in favor of Barber. This news makes Drake unstartable in Week 4, even in a plus-matchup against the Chargers, as we simply don't know if he will have the same role or if he'll have to slowly earn it back.
