Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 18 times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for five yards in a 20-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Drake was held below 50 rushing yards for the third time in the last four games, but he also scored for the ninth time in the last 10 games. His workload should keep him as a volume-based RB2 for the finale.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed for 26 yards on 10 carries and corralled both of his targets for 14 yards in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Drake entered the weekend on a four-game touchdown streak, but he crashed down to earth in a big way against Philadelphia's stout front four. It's fair to assume his meager workload was partially the product of head coach Kliff Kingsbury relying on the passing game with the Eagles down two of their top corners. Drake should have a more favorable game script presented to him in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he should still be considered no more than a high-upside RB2.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake registered 80 rushing yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Week 14 against the New York Giants and he added one catch for 10 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Drake had some mid-season injuries and he struggled a bit in the middle of the season, with talk of Chase Edmonds perhaps carving into his workload. He put an end to that, and is back as the bona fide No. 1 RB for the Cardinals heading into Week 15 and beyond.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is active for Week 14's game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Drake had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging one full practice session and two limited practice sessions during the week. He can be viewed as a No. 2 or flex option in fantasy leagues this week even though he has a difficult matchup versus the Giants' rushing defense.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the New York Giants, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Drake had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging one full practice session and two limited sessions during the week. He can be viewed as a No. 2 RB or flex option in fantasy leagues this week despite the difficult matchup versus the Giants' run defense, which has allowed the third-fewest rushing yards in the NFL this season.

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Drake may be a game-time decision, so fantasy players should keep an eye on his situation over the next few days. He will be facing a solid defense if he plays but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he plays.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) was limited in practice for a second consecutive day Friday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: There's been no indication Drake won't play in Week 14 against the New York Giants. With that said, the Giants have been stingy on the ground against running backs for the most part. Drake has been more active in the passing game lately, but his biggest boost lately has come as a result of defenses doing a better job of containing Kyler Murray and forcing him to beat them with something other than his running ability. Consider Drake a decent RB2 this week with limited upside.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, after being added to the injury report the previous day with a hip issue.
Huddle Up: We'll check the official Week 14 injury report to be certain, but it sounds like Drake will be fine as a RB2 fantasy starter against the Giants on Sunday. Drake has found his way into the end zone in each of his last three games, scoring a total of four TDs during that span.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Drake should be available for the Week 14 game, but fantasy players will know more in the next day or two. He has four touchdowns in the last three games and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 10 times for 49 yards and a touchdown and caught two of his three targets for nine yards in a 38-28 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13.
Huddle Up: With the Cardinals trailing in the second half, Drake logged a season-low 10 carries, but he salvaged the outing by finding the end zone. Drake has had a couple of duds on the year, but he has been a volume-based RB2 overall.
