It remains to be seen if Drake will be ready for training camp, but when healthy, Drake will join a crowded Raiders backfield after multiple offseason additions. Drake will be competing for playing time with Josh Jacobs, Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah, and rookie Zamir White. In recent seasons the Raiders have heavily relied on starting RB Josh Jacob while other RBs have been mixed in to spell Jacobs, but this season the team is expected to utilize a RB committee under new HC Josh McDaniels. Fantasy managers will need to monitor this backfield during training camp to see where Drake falls within the Raiders RB pecking order to get a better sense of what his true fantasy value will be.
