Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Drake rushed 16 times for 60 yards and one score, catching both of his targets for five yards last week. 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Kenyan Drake's 18 touches and a touchdown in Week 1 were very encouraging in a tough matchup, although he only finished as the RB17 on the week. Week 2 brings another tough matchup against a Washington front seven that looked dominant in Week 1. However, Drake is going to see another high touch total and he has the talent to produce in this offense despite the difficult matchup. He's a solid RB2 this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Drake wasn't involved much in the receiving game last week, but saw 16 carries on the ground. That's promising moving forward, but this is another tough matchup for Drake. He's a RB2 against this defense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a tough matchup right out of the gate for Drake, but he came through with a touchdown, salvaging the week. The downside to his performance was that Edmonds saw five targets to his two targets. Looking closer, though, you shouldn't be too concerned, as Drake was in on 27 pass plays, while Edmonds was on the field for 15 of them. Drake played 30 more snaps overall, so he's clearly the lead back here. Washington isn't a cake matchup by any means, as their front seven is the strength of their team. Now under Ron Rivera, we must try to eliminate the 4.71 yards per carry they allowed last year and look at what they're doing now. The combination of Boston Scott and Corey Clement totaled just 54 yards on 15 carries against them last week. The one thing that helps you feel better about Drake is that they're a big home favorite in a game they should total 65-plus plays on offense. That's a recipe for success with running backs, and we can't just forget that a similar front seven allowed ten different running backs to post top-10 numbers against them in 2019. Drake should be considered a high-end RB2 with some upside.The snap count between these three last week was Swift 34, Peterson 24, Johnson 20. That's about as gross as a timeshare gets. Peterson led the way with 17 touches, while Johnson had seven, and Swift had six. I'm following the snaps and saying that Swift's role will only get bigger, though his drop in the end zone for what would've been a game-winner didn't help. The Packers were a defense to attack with running backs last year, allowing a massive 4.86 yards per carry (4th-highest mark in NFL). There were just three teams who allowed more fantasy points on the ground to running backs than them (Panthers, Jaguars, Dolphins). That seems to bode well for Peterson's role, but the concern is that they're on the road against the Packers and their defense won't be able to stop anything. That could lead to a bigger role for Swift, who ran 25 pass routes while Peterson ran just nine of them. The Packers allowed 22 different running backs post top-36 numbers against them last year, so we're likely to get at least one usable performance here. Knowing Swift got the lone carry inside the five-yard line for the Lions, he's the one I'd want to play as a mediocre RB3/flex with some upside if they fall behind. Peterson should net 12-plus touches and can he started as a high-end RB4 for teams with troubles at the running back position. Johnson appears to be an afterthought outside of spelling Peterson on early-down work, as he ran just nine pass routes.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Washington allowed the fewest points to fantasy running backs in Week 1, but the Eagles had line issues and Miles Sanders was not active. Drake should be a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 at home.
