What is Kenyan Drake’s fantasy football status, DFS price for Week 3?
The stagnant swamp that is the Miami Dolphin offense totaled zero points in their Week 2 loss against the New England Patriots. Even in a blowout loss Kenyan Drake totaled just 48 yards on 11 combined touches. So much for banking on garbage time. The only good news is his teammate, Kalen Ballage, had an even worse day rushing.
Drake’s Week 3 price ($4,500) is a small bump up. There are other backs priced in the same neighborhood who are on better teams and have better opportunities like Carlos Hyde ($4,500) and Peyton Barber ($4,600). Drake faces the surging Dallas Cowboys in Week 3 and the Miami Dolphins are a team in full collapse. To make matters worse, this is the first road game for the Dolphins this season and Drake’s name popped up in trade rumors over the weekend. A trade and change of scenery would do wonders for his fantasy relevance, but it could also jeopardize his playing time.
