It was practically a 50/50 timeshare between these two last week, as Edmonds played 36 snaps to Drake's 33 snaps. Drake did touch the ball 15 times to Edmonds' six touches, including the goal-line carries, which are clearly worth a lot, especially with Kyler Murray dinged up. Drake also saw a season-high five targets against the Seahawks, which would be massive for his value moving forward. It's not like the Seahawks were a matchup to exploit through the air, but part of me wonders if it was due to Murray's shoulder issue. Time will tell, but Drake clearly has a valuable role. The Patriots opponents have run the ball a league-high 48.8 percent of the time, which has led to 22.4 carries per game against them by running backs. "Wait, why isn't it more than that for a team who faces such a high percentage of run plays?" It's due to the fact that teams have averaged just 57.6 plays per game against them. Removing the one game where Drake didn't play, the split in carries has been Drake 146 - Edmonds 39. We should be expecting 16-plus carries out of Drake this week. Efficiency hasn't been that much of an issue against the Patriots who've allowed 4.42 yards per carry and 6.47 yards per target to running backs; both of which are above the league average. Every running back who's received at least 14 carries against the Patriots (five running backs have) has finished with at least 83 total yards. Drake should be worth considering as a low-end RB2 for this week. Edmonds has averaged just 8.0 touches per game when Drake is active, which is hard to trust as anything more than an RB4.

Kenyan Drake scores TD in Week 11

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 29 yards with a touchdown and added four receptions for 31 receiving yards in the Cardinals' Week 11 loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Drake led the Cardinals in carries and salvaged his day with a two-yard score early in the second quarter. Drake had one more target than Chase Edmonds and tallied his most receiving yards and receptions this season to date. He'll be an RB2 against the Patriots in Week 12.
