Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake rushed 14 times for a game-high 69 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles while adding three catches for 10 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Drake took over as the workhorse back once Josh Jacobs exited the game with a chest injury. If the ailment keeps Jacobs out for a significant period, Drake could be a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 9 after the team returns from its bye.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake had four carries for 34 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos. He also caught two passes for 39 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Usage wise, Drake still isn't getting a lot of work, totaling just six touches in Week 6. He made them count, though, so perhaps that will convince the Raiders to give the offseason signing some more work after he managed just four touches combined in the last two games. If Drake was dropped you can consider scooping him up, at least in larger leagues, just in case this heralds a bigger presence moving ahead.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake rushed once for just two yards in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he also had three kickoff returns for 68 yards.
Huddle Up: Drake had just the one run, even with Peyton Barber exiting early. With Josh Jacobs back from an ankle injury, Drake's role was expected to be curtailed anyway, but he didn't even get run with Barber out. If you were hanging onto him in fantasy leagues hoping for the best, he can be safely dropped now.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake rushed eight times for just 24 yards in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins and he added three catches for 33 yards on five targets against his former team.
Huddle Up: Drake was unceremoniously dumped by the Dolphins in a trade to the Arizona Cardinals in Oct. 2019, and he had a chance to show them what they were missing. He did next to nothing with the chance, however, and Peyton Barber showed out instead. Drake is only worth hanging onto in deeper PPR formats heading into Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake rushed seven times for just nine yards in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added five grabs for 46 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Drake had the opportunity to be the lead back with Josh Jacobs on the inactive list due to injury, but he averaged just 1.3 yards per carry. The good news is that Peyton Barber had 13 runs, but just 2.5 yards per carry, so he didn't do much to differentiate himself in the event Jacobs is out again in Week 3. Still, Drake is a risky fantasy play in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins, his former team.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake ran six times for just 11 yards in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens, and he added five grabs for 59 yards on his five targets.
Huddle Up: Drake didn't do anything in the run game, but he showed his elusiveness with his hands catching out of the backfield. If you have fantasy stock in Josh Jacobs, it might be a good idea to grab Drake as a handcuff, too, either off the waiver wire if he is still available, or via trade. Jacobs already looked banged up, and it could be just a matter of time before Drake is handling the workload on his own.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake (undisclosed) was activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 30, and has returned to practice.
Huddle Up: Drake will have a solid role in the offense even though he will not be the No. 1 running back. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy back or a flex option in leagues.

Las Vegas RB Kenyan Drake (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Wednesday, July 28.
Huddle Up: Drake can be activated at any point and should be able to practice during training camp. He will not be the starting back for the Raiders but should have a decent role in the offense. He can be considered a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues that can be a flex option against certain opponents.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake said Friday, July 9, that he expects to have a sizable role alongside lead back Josh Jacobs in the Raiders' offense. 'I'm definitely excited to see how our roles continue to develop with obviously Josh being the main guy to do what he needs to do because I have much respect and love for him and his game and what coach (Jon) Gruden has planned for us in that specific capacity,' Drake told SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'But I feel like I might have a big role in this offense. With them being a top-10 offense last year, the sky is the limit for us. I'm ready to see us take it to the next level.'
Huddle Up: Drake doesn't figure to get anywhere near the career-high 264 touches he logged a season ago with the Cards but more than doubling his 25 receptions is well within reach as Jon Gruden and Co. have been seeking a pass-catching back. Value him as a PPR RB3 in drafts this summer.
