With Josh Jacobs out last week, Drake only saw one more touch than he did in Week 1, so the boost in opportunities was surely exaggerated. Still, Drake has caught 10 balls this season, and his work as a receiver gives him a study floor in PPR formats. C'mon - you're not playing Peyton Barber this week, right? 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Josh Jacobs listed as "very questionable" by Jon Gruden for this upcoming matchup, it seems like we're going to see the duo of Kenyan Drake and Barber out there again for the Raiders. Drake certainly has not been efficient on the ground this year so far and that's evidenced by his 1.5 YPC on 13 rush attempts. However, he's at least providing a safe floor for fantasy managers with his involvement in the receiving game. He now has 10 receptions for 105 yards on the season and he has some value in Full PPR formats because of it. With that being said, he's still not worth viewing as anything more than a mid-range RB3 in that format. There are other options you can turn to that carry more upside than Drake in this offense.We're now through two games and we still don't have much more clarity on this Buccaneers backfield situation than we did after week one. After being declared the "starter" by Bruce Arians going into week two, Ronald Jones came out and took a back seat to Leonard Fournette yet again. At this point, Jones cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups across any format. Fournette is seeing the bulk of the work and he's producing with the opportunity, but it's still not enough to put him into the weekly RB2 conversation. Moving forward, he's simply just a volatile FLEX play that you plug into your lineup and hope that he finds the end zone. If you can, I'd look to avoid this backfield altogether.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Josh Jacobs still isn't practicing because of an ankle injury, and it's looking like another week with Drake and Barber as the Raiders' top two backs. Drake played a robust 71% of the offensive snaps in Week 2. He had 7-9-0 rushing and 5-46-0 receiving, and it's that usage in the passing game (along with the promise of a generous snap count) that has me regarding him as a low-end RB2 this week. Barber dominated carries last week with a 13-32-0 rushing line, and he may well serve as the goal-line guy while Jacobs is away, but the floor and ceiling with Barber are both uncomfortably low.Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians named Jones the starter in advance of the Bucs' Week 2 game against the Falcons, but "starter" was a figurehead title in this case. Fournette edged Jones in snaps and out-touched him 15-7. Jones simply isn't useful in the passing game, which is always going to limit his role - especially with Tom Brady running the offense and being particular about his RBs being in the right place at the right time. Fournette isn't the most efficient pass catcher, but he at least demonstrates basic competence in that area. He's probably the only Tampa back worth rostering at the moment, though he's no better than a midrange RB3 against a good Rams defense. It's surprising we haven't seen more of Bernard, who's played 18% of the Bucs' offensive snaps through two games. There had been reports just before the start of the season that Bernard had been dealing with a "mild high-ankle sprain," which is probably just a regular high-ankle sprain, which is probably something Bernard shouldn't have been trying to play through. Perhaps he'll play a bigger role when he's fully healthy.

Jacobs is still questionable for this week, making Drake a high-end flex option against a Dolphins team that is 29th against fantasy backs through 2 weeks.
