Kenyan Drake sees just six touches in loss

Kenyan Drake saw four carries and two receptions on Sunday night, totalling 31 total yards on the night.

Fantasy Impact

It was a huge letdown for Drake, who was so good as a receiving back last week. Even in a negative game script, Drake didn't see a ton of receiving work and trailed teammate Josh Jacobs in targets and yards. If Drake isn't even locked into his third-down role, he simply can't be trusted in fantasy lineups moving forward.

Kenyan Drake reclaims receiving back role in loss

Kenyan Drake saw just four carries for 30 yards on Sunday, but he did manage to catch six of his eight targets for a total of 70 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact

It makes it a total of 100 yards on the game, which by fantasy standards can certainly get the job done, especially in PPR leagues. Drake could have another good week in Week 10 when the Raiders take on the Chiefs in what could be a high scoring game, although both teams have struggled offensively as of late.

Kenyan Drake delivers in increased role

Kenyan Drake saw a season high 14 carries on Sunday, rushing for 69 yards and a touchdown. He also caught all three of his targets for 10 yards.

Fantasy Impact

After teammate Josh Jacobs went out with a chest injury, Drake was left with a large rushing role and he definitely delivered. Drake wasn't given the lead role when Jacobs went down earlier this season, but with Peyton Barber being a healthy scratch Drake got his chance in Week 7. The Raiders will have w much needed bye in Week 8, but if Jacobs misses any time beyond that Drake could be looked at as a solid fantasy play. Barring that the team goes back to Barber instead.

Kenyan Drake comes back to life with two touchdowns

Kenyan Drake had just six touches, including two receptions, on Sunday, but he totalled 73 yards and had two touchdowns in the process.

Fantasy Impact

It was a great fantasy day for Drake, who performed on hyper efficiency in this one. While the points on paper are attractive, Drake is still unstartable in fantasy. He still isn't getting enough volume in either facet of the game and the Raiders have shown that on the goalline Josh Jacobs is their guy. It's a difficult situation to predict, but fantasy managers should try to avoid Drake if they can in Week 7.

Kenyan Drake sees just one touch in MNF loss

Kenyan Drake saw one carry on Monday night, running for two yards.

Fantasy Impact

Drake was on the field for 20 snaps, but failed to record a target and his lone carry was simply to run out the clock at the end of the first half. Drake seems to fully be in HC Jon Gruden's dog house and is safe to drop in most leagues. He simply isn't trustworthy if he isn't receiving any passing work, and we know the running work won't be there with the return of starting running back Josh Jacobs.
