Kenyan Drake 2019 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Anyone still holding Drake May as well start him this week. It’ll be his best matchup of the season against the equally awful Redskins. I think Drake is a talented back, but his awful team is crippling his upside. This would be the rare week he is worth a flex and/or bye week fill-in.

I hope Drake doesn't get traded to Tennessee, simply because I'm afraid my good friend @DerrickHenrysCleats would die from an ecstasy-induced embolism if Henry and Drake were on the same team.

This is indeed the best match-up so far this year and as of now I'm likely starting him. Another guy I would keep my eye on is Walton.  If Ballage continues to suck and if Drake gets traded they may move to Walton. They may even start giving more of Ballages touches to Walton.

 

Having said that this is a nice game for the Fins to showcase Drake in hopes of getting a dance partner for a trade.

This guy just hit the waiver in my league.  He has to be worth an add right?  I wonder if there's still any chance he gets traded.

He's a solid bye week guy in PPR. He's put up okayish numbers and hasn't scored a TD yet, which he inevitably will at some point.

Not too sure this is as good a match-up as everyone seems to think.

The Redskins are as awful as their record suggests but they've also just underwent a coaching change. The defensive coordinator lost his life support and will be auditioning for other jobs starting with this game. They also have some playmakers up front and I wouldn't be surprised if pressure brought upon by recent events prod them to rise above the level of play they've demonstrated so far, especially against a team they don't have to worry about in the air.

I added, only because it's hard to find a starting RB on waivers at this point.  But I'm still not sure how much 4-6-12-9 rushing attempts are worth in this anemic offense.

Trying to think of possible landing spots for him even if a team wanted to trade for him.  Tampa?  Unlikely now since it seems like RoJo might have a chance.  Redskins?  Maybe it would be a good spot if they do indeed want to run more.  But who really is hurting enough to want him?

A great bye week filler this week for those with a starting RB unavailable. Looks like he's available in around 40% of leagues so I'd definitely check it out. Good match-up, obviously.

 

Ehhh, Mark Walton appears to be taking over the role that people thought Ballage was going to have. Wouldn't surprise me at all if he leads the backfield in touches this week.

Could be soon. I'd be surprised if it's this week. I'd be comfortable with him as a bye-week fill with the 'Skins match-up.

If you're in a 12 team that's an excellent flex score considering it was with zero TDs. No need for the underhandedness.

I mean, you're right, but it's not like it will win me the week as my rb2 fill-in, so I won't be as thrilled as others may be. Despite that, it was still a solid performance so I won't sit here and bash the guy.

It really depends on your perception. You can think weeks are won by the 25-pointer your stud puts up, or the 10-points your fill-in gets you while your opponent started Ekeler (6.3), Gordon (4.3), James White (9), Darrell Henderson (5.3), Derrick Henry (3.8), Chris Thompson (3), Damien Williams (8.5), Breida (8.3), Joe Mixon (4.9).

 

All started in my league this week. If your bye week fill-in scores .1 less than Kamara (10.1), from one view he might've won you the week.
