Kenyan Drake Week 4 Outlook - Bills at Raiders

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Tue, Sep 29th 2020, 11:39am EDT

I'm with you. It's been a bad start to the season for Drake, who's averaged a respectable 4.1 yards per carry, but he's caught just five passes through three games, and has found the end zone just once. He's still getting 74.7 percent of the running back touches in this backfield, so in games where they're projected to run a lot of plays, he should be in for a big performance. Last week was surely a disappointment, but don't hang onto that because you don't want to miss his Week 4 performance against the Panthers. Through their last 19 games, they've now allowed 34 rushing touchdowns, including seven of them in their three games this year. Those touchdowns came courtesy of Josh Jacobs, Leonard Fournette, Ronald Jones, and Austin Ekeler. Outside of their games with the Panthers, do you know how many touchdowns those running backs have scored? ZERO. This is Drake's chance to get right and pad his fantasy stats. They've allowed 1.23 PPR points per opportunity and Drake hasn't had fewer than 18 opportunities in a game yet. Start him as an RB1 and reap the benefits. I'm willing to go back to him in cash games as well. Knowing the Panthers have already allowed six running backs to finish as the RB43 or better, even Edmonds has RB4 appeal this week.
