Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught six of his seven targets for 13 yards in a 36-26 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Drake has tallied at least 16 touches in all three games since joining Arizona, and David Johnson didn't touch the ball at all against the 49ers. Drake looks like the No. 1 back in Arizona, and he should be a RB2 the rest of the way if his current usage continues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is expected to be treated as the starting running back for Week 11's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: This is not good news for fantasy owners of David Johnson, who has experienced a disappointing season and did not appear to be anywhere near 100 percent during Week 10's contest versus Tampa Bay. Drake merits consideration as an RB2 this afternoon, especially in PPR fantasy formats.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 10 times for 35 yards in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six receptions for just six yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: David Johnson wasn't on the injury report with his ankle injury, but he clearly wasn't 100 percent with just five carries for two yards and one grab for eight yards. As long as Johnson isn't 100 percent it appears Drake is going to get some decent run. He is worth using as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams, particularly PPR formats.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake played 84% of his team's offensive snaps in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: It was an excellent debut for the former member of the Miami Dolphins, but his role is guaranteed to shrink as soon as one of David Johnson or Chase Edmonds is able to return from injury. The Cardinals visit the top rush defense of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week, limiting Drake's appeal even if he retains his significant role for one more game.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake ran 15 times for 110 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, Oct. 31. Drake also caught four passes for 52 yards.
Huddle Up: Talk about making a positive first impression. With David Johnson and Chase Edmonds both inactive, Drake stepped in and racked up 162 total yards and a score after being acquired earlier this week. Despite that, it's anyone's guess what the backfield will look like in Week 10 against the Bucs based on whether or not Johnson and/or Edmonds are able to return. Keep an eye out for injury updates.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake 'will get major run' Thursday, Oct. 31, against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.
Huddle Up: Drake had a single-game high of 44 rushing yards this season with the Miami Dolphins. The 49ers defense should stifle expectations for him in his Cardinals debut, but he can be used as a desperation flex play, if needed.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake will reportedly be given a 'manageable workload' against San Francisco 49ers in Week 9, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Drake was acquired Monday morning and will have just over two days to process as much of the Cardinals' playbook as possible before taking the field Thursday against the 49ers. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to start him due to his unfamiliarity with the scheme and the matchup, but he's probably going to need to be started in many leagues based on the likelihood he'll see at least 10 to 12 touches and given how many good backs are on a bye this week.

Updating earlier reports, Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a sixth-round pick that could become a fifth-round pick.

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake was shipped to the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 28, in exchange for a conditional pick in 2020.
Huddle Up: Mark Walton had 14 rushes for 66 yards in the team's last game, and he will probably be in a timeshare with Kalen Ballage. Ballage has touchdowns in each of the last two games, but he's likely pegged for a short-yardage role. Scoop Walton wherever you can for depth.

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 28, in exchange for a conditional 2020 draft pick.
Huddle Up: Drake will enter a crowded, but injured backfield in Arizona. David Johnson (ankle) is expected to be out in Week 9, and it appears Chase Edmonds (hamstring) has now been put on the backburner as well. Drake has a short week with the Cardinals playing on Thursday night, but he'll be a low-end RB2 in PPR formats.
