    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake recorded only four touches in Week 15 versus the Minnesota Vikings, but head coach Adam Gase told reporters Monday, Dec. 17, that his running back was not held back due to injury.

    Huddle Up: One of the season's more curious ongoing stories has been Gase's refusal to feature Drake. In Week 15 against what has typically been a stout Vikings' run defense, it would have made a lot of sense for the coach to rely more heavily on the 24-year-old back. Instead, it was time for rookie Kalen Ballage to shine. Given the fact Drake hasn't seen more than nine touches in the last three games and is obviously big-play dependent, it will be difficult to start him in Week 16 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 5:24pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed just once for six yards in Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings while registered three catches for 28 yards.

    Huddle Up: Drake was not the next man up with Frank Gore going down, but it was Kalen Ballage being used instead. The rookie excelled, too, which isn't good for Drake's short-term fantasy outlook even if Gore is forced to the shelf.

  • Posted: 12/14/2018 11:06am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Drake has recorded four touchdowns in the last three games and has been receiving around 10 touches per game over the last few weeks. He can be considered a flex option in most leagues this week.

  • Posted: 12/13/2018 1:10pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Drake should be fine for the Week 15 game and likely will be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/12/2018 2:51pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: Drake has been an effective fantasy player down the stretch, scoring in three consecutive games with receiving touchdowns (and he has four total during the span). He has been a solid RB3 or flex fantasy play in all formats for his ability to sniff out the end zone lately.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 2:07pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed for 24 yards on six carries against the New England Patriots in Week 14. He also caught one pass for 55 yards and one touchdown during the game.

    Huddle Up: Drake has had a solid fantasy season so far because he has been involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option most weeks because of his role in the offense.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 1:26pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 7, but is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Drake has received at least 10 touches in six of the last eight games and has recorded three touchdowns in the last two games. He can be considered a flex option in all leagues this week.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 1:15pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Drake has posted three touchdowns in the last two games and should be involved in the running and passing game if he is able to play this week. He can be considered a possible flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/5/2018 2:21pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Drake has picked up the pace, at least in terms of touchdowns, posting a rushing score and two receiving touchdowns in the past two games. He has re-emerged as a trustworthy RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues going into Week 14 if he can play.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 6:24pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed seven times for 31 yards and caught two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in a 21-17 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Despite a limited workload, Drake has managed to score six times over the last six games. The committee with Frank Gore caps his upside, but he is still a solid flex play.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 4:38pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 30, but is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Drake likely will be involved in the running and passing game this week and can be a flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 4:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Drake is coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 12 and will continue to be involved in the running and passing game. He can be a flex option in most leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/28/2018 9:47am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Drake had a big week last week, but he is feast or famine from week to week as an RB2.

  • Posted: 11/26/2018 9:22am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) will not be allowed to take on contact during practice leading up to Week 13 after falling on the same shoulder that was bothering him last week.

    Huddle Up: Drake operated in a similar manner during practice last week before ultimately playing, so owners should expect him to play in the likely event he is listed as questionable. He'll be a volatile low-end, high-upside RB2 option again in Week 13 versus the Buffalo Bills.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 7:07pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) rushed eight times for 32 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 64 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12. He briefly left with a shoulder injury but was able to return.

    Huddle Up: Drake bounced back from a couple of duds with a two-score effort, but he continues to depend on explosive plays and touchdowns rather than volume. He has RB2 upside, but he's a boom-or-bust option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 3:11pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Drake has received at least 10 touches in five of the last six games and should continue to be involved in the running and passing game. He could be a possible flex option in point-per-reception leagues but can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 11/21/2018 11:06am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: Drake has a midrange matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, but his usage rate can't be trusted. The Colts are rolling, and the Dolphins could fall behind quickly and make Drake obsolete. He's a flex option this week.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 7:04pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) rushed eight times for 27 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 31-12 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 10. He temporarily exited with a shoulder injury but return to the game.

    Huddle Up: Drake has lagged behind Frank Gore in touches in recent weeks, and while he is clearly the more explosive back, he has become a boom-or-bust flex option because of his dependence on big plays and limited touches.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 3:41pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) checked out of the Week 10 game against the Green Bay Packers due to a shoulder injury and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: If Drake cannot return it would mean even more work for Frank Gore, who has surged into the No. 1 role dominating the backfield touches in Miami lately.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 11:57am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 9, but is not on the injury report for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Drake likely will be involved in the running and passing game this week and should receive a decent amount of touches. He can be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 12:57pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Drake has posted decent numbers this season even though he is sharing snaps with Frank Gore. He probably will receive around 10 touches this week and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 4:09pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Drake received only seven touches last week but has posted solid numbers over the last several weeks. He will continue to share playing time with Frank Gore at running back but can be a possible flex option for owners in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 5:31pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed three times for just nine yards in Week 9 against the New York Jets and he added four grabs for 26 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Drake had seven total touches to 21 for Frank Gore, or a 1-to-3 touch distribution. That's not what Drake's fantasy owners want to see. He should be reserved in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers and keep him benched until he starts to eat into Gore's workload.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 11:17am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Drake has received at least 10 touches in each of the last four games and has been involved in the running and passing game. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 4:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Drake's status isn't in doubt and he'll carry his usual RB2 value into Sunday's divisional tilt with the Jets. However, with Brock Osweiler still serving as the starting quarterback, his ceiling won't be as high for Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/31/2018 2:26pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Drake should be good to go for Sunday's contest against the New York Jets. He had 11 carries for 53 yards and a score in the first matchup in Week 2 while racking up four receptions. Expect similar production on Sunday.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 10:02pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake posted 95 total yards and two touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) during the team's loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Drake continues to look like Miami's most explosive playmaker, though the presence of Frank Gore seems to limit how many opportunities Adam Gase is willing to give him. Still, Drake is doing enough to rate as a viable RB2.

  • Posted: 10/24/2018 1:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was added to the practice report with a shoulder injury Wednesday, Oct. 24, but he practiced in full and was lifted from the report ahead of the Week 8 game with the Houston Texans on Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: It's odd he was added and then removed, but it appears head coach Adam Gase is just taking the transparency thing seriously and not risking getting in hot water with the NFL. Drake is fine and remains a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option for this matchup.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 6:44pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake had six rushes for 72 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown, and caught four passes for 15 yards in a 32-21 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Drake has been showing more explosiveness in recent weeks, and he has caught at least four passes in three straight games. Frank Gore is still looming, but Drake has RB2 upside in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 4:15pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears and he added four receptions for 21 yards.

    Huddle Up: It was almost a disastrous day for Drake, as he fumbled at the 1-yard line in overtime. However, the Dolphins got a stop on defense and bailed him out with a field goal at the buzzer. Frank Gore went over 100 yards and could eat more into Drake's work going forward, but Gore is 35. Drake remains more of a RB3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 7:26pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake could continue to be used as a change-of-pace back and receiver going forward, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

    Huddle Up: Drake has carried the ball just 14 times combined over the last three games, but he did haul in seven passes in Week 5. He could still be worth a look as a flex play in PPR formats, but his ceiling is going to be capped unless he starts earning more early-down work.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 2:23pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake caught seven passes for 69 yards and one touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5. He also rushed for 46 yards on six carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Drake was not a big part of the offense the last two games but played well this week against the Bengals. He could be more involved in the passing game moving forward but should be benched next week against the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 7:51am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake has split the work with RB Frank Gore, but Gore has seen more carries of late. Gore has more carries than Drake in each of the last two games, and Gore has 35 carries to Drake's 33 on the year. Head coach Adam Gase attributed it to the team running about 20 fewer plays per game than they would like. 'These guys are playing the way we want them to as far as the play count compared to what we're getting,' Gase said. 'We're just not getting enough plays. (Drake's) snaps should be anywhere from 35 to 40 snaps a game between him and Frank splitting that stuff. But we're getting 20 to 23 snaps in the game because we're just not having enough plays in the game.'

    Huddle Up: Drake has been a disappointment with 3.2 yards per carry, 102 yards on the ground, one score and 10 grabs for 55 yards. He has a midrange matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals this week, and he's a bottom-rate RB2 right now.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 6:21pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed three times for three yards and caught one pass for 13 yards in a 38-7 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: The entire Miami offense was shut down in the ugly loss, but Drake has now turned in back-to-back clunkers. He is no more than a flex option heading into a Week 5 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 6:18pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake posted just three yards on five rushes in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders and he added two receptions for seven yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Drake was viewed as a fantasy sleeper heading into the season, but he was just asleep in this one. Drake has 104 rushing yards on 30 carries with one score, and nine grabs for 42 yards with no touchdowns through three games. Right now he is nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 until he starts to get going.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 12:29pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (abdomen) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Drake should continue to share work with Frank Gore but has received at least 15 touches in the first two games. He can be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 9/19/2018 2:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (abdomen) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Drake is listed with an abdominal issue, but the good news is that it didn't limit him in any way on Hump Day. It appears he'll be just fine to suit up for the Week 3 tussle with the Oakland Raiders. He is a solid low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option across the board as long as he remains healthy.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 7:42pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Jets and he added four receptions for 17 yards on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: Drake hasn't lit the world afire so far, but he hasn't been terrible, either. He has managed at least 48 rushing yards and at least three receptions in each game while scoring once. Treat him as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the visiting Oakland Raiders.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 6:44pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 14 times for 48 yards and caught three of his four targets for 18 yards in a 27-20 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that Drake led all running backs in carries and touches, but he wasn't able to generate any big plays. Frank Gore is going to cut into his carries, but Drake is still a viable RB2 candidate in PPR formats heading into a Week 2 meeting with the New York Jets.

  • Posted: 8/29/2018 11:57am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake will be leaned upon heavily by head coach Adam Gase in the 2018 season. 'You'd love to get in that 70-75 plays per game (range) as a unit. If that happens, then you're looking at hopefully anywhere from 15-20 carries and 6-8 targets,' Gase said of Drake. The Dolphins averaged a little over 62 plays in 2017, but are using the no-huddle offense this season.

    Huddle Up: While Gase's number of plays might be a bit ambitious, his comments are good news for fantasy owners. Drake will be the workhorse in the Miami offense, taking over as the new Jay Ajayi this season. He racked up 444 rushing yards on 75 carries and 150 receiving yards on 17 catches in the final five games of 2017 to give everyone a preview. Drake is a low-end RB2 or flex player with plenty of upside in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 7:28pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed four times for 32 yards and caught one pass for 36 yards in a 27-10 preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Drake will likely surrender some early-down carries to Frank Gore, but he should still lead the backfield in touches and is the far more explosive option. Draft him as a low-end RB2.

  • Posted: 8/17/2018 8:33pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed eight times for 54 yards and caught three passes for four yards in a 27-20 preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Frank Gore is going to see some touches, but Drake is the more explosive back. He's a low-end RB2 candidate.

  • Posted: 7/26/2018 4:23pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake opened up with the starters on the first day of training camp Thursday, July 26, and looked 'very good.'

    Huddle Up: Drake exhibited enormous potential last year when he got the keys to Miami's backfield after the club jettisoned Jay Ajayi to Philadelphia. However, his workload may not be as significant entering the new campaign, with the Dolphins bringing in Frank Gore to potentially serve as the '1B' running back. Owners should wait to see how this plays out through August.

  • Posted: 5/10/2018 10:13am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is ready to 'bust out' this season, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: We can only assume that 'bust out' and 'break out' are the same thing. Gase is right, though, Drake is a prime breakout candidate heading into 2018. His main competition will be soon-to-be 35-year-old Frank Gore, but Gore should primarily be used in short-yardage and goal-line scenarios. Drake sits comfortably in RB2 territory with added PPR appeal.

  • Posted: 4/14/2018 6:56pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake said Friday, April 13, that he has added more than five pounds this offseason to handle a full season as the starting back.

    Huddle Up: The Dolphins added Frank Gore during free agency, but Drake should still be the lead back. After impressing as the starter down the stretch last season, he's a RB2 candidate heading into 2018.

  • Posted: 2/22/2018 11:24pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake ranked as the third-most elusive running back under an NFL 'Next Gen Stats' metric that measured yardage gained after defenders got within a yard of the ball-carrier. Drake finished third (4.55 yards), behind only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (4.76) and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (4.63).

    Huddle Up: Drake definitely showed something special last year after the team jettisoned Jay Ajayi right before the trade deadline. Overall, the second-year tailback rushed for 644 yards on 133 rush attempts -- good for an impressive 4.8 yards per carry -- to go with three touchdowns. He also accumulated 32 catches in the passing game for 239 yards and one receiving score. Assuming he's the full-time starter next year, Drake is looking like a solid RB2.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 5:36pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he did not have a catch on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Drake is wrapping up the season as the team's bellcow, but he isn't doing a lot with his opportunity. It's uncertain if the team has seen enough from Drake to rely on him as the top ball carrier heading into 2017.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 10:33am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake likely wouldn't be running as much as he has if RB Damien Williams (shoulder) were healthy, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

    Huddle Up: Drake has been up to the task with Williams sidelined. He has averaged 149 total yards over his last three games, scoring twice. Drake should see plenty of work this week, too, if Williams is still out. He's a borderline RB1.
