What to do with Kenyan Drake, David Johnson, Chase Edmonds in Week 16 fantasy football

The Cardinals have a clear No. 1 running back now.

We have some order to the Arizona Cardinals running back depth chart. It really came into focus last week. Most surprisingly of all is that it is not David Johnson at the top of the depth chart. Whatever it was that dropped him to the second spot on the list, Kenyan Drake sits alone at the top.

Drake was a machine last week against the Cleveland Browns. He carried the ball 22 times for 137 yards, and more impressively, he scored four times. Johnson did get some work. He carried the ball three times for six yards, and that is all. Edmonds did not get a single touch.

Drake may not have quite so hot a hand this week, and that’s fine. It’s hard to do that every week, and the Seahawks are no pushovers. That means Johnson could see a little more work, and maybe Edmonds too. But Drake is the hot hand, and you should go with it.

Start Drake. Sit the others.
