Game status: Kenyan Drake is ACTIVE for Week 14.

Game day update: Kenyan Drake expected to play in Week 14, per Ian Rapoport.

Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake is listed as questionable ahead of this week’s game against the New York Giants. He is dealing with what’s listed as a hip injury. Drake was able to get in a limited practice session on both Thursday and Friday this week, so he should be good to go when the team travels to New Jersey for Sunday’s game.

Fantasy impact: Kenyan Drake (hip)

Drake had carries for 49 yards last week against the Rams. He did manage to find the end zone though, running his current scoring streak to three straight games. In fact, he now has four touchdowns in his last three outings, thanks to a 78-yard, two-score effort back in Week 12 against the Patriots. Drake is getting a much larger share of the work than his backfield mate, Chase Edmunds, who doesn’t have much fantasy value these days. Drake is definitely worth a spot in lineups this week as a solid RB2 option.
