6 months agoMiami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake was one of many players victimized by bad coaching last season. Despite averaging 4.5 yards per carry, which actually lowered his career average to 4.7, Drake only saw as much as double-digit carries on five occasions. Coach Adam Gase opted to make veteran Frank Gore the primary back, limiting Drake to a part-time role. Drake was able to make gains as a pass-catcher with 53 receptions and he reached the end zone nine times. Still, it was a year of frustration for him and those who spent a fourth-round pick on a presumed RB2. Turn the page to 2019 and Drake is in a unique position. The team no longer has Gore or Gase but does have second-year man Kalen Ballage in tow - a player who was barely used in his rookie year. If Drake can hold off Ballage, along with AAF star Kenneth Farrow, Bengals castoff Mark Walton, and incoming rookie Myles Gaskin, he could see upwards of 15 touches per game. That doesn't make him more than an RB2 still but he should deliver much greater value given his depressed ADP of 65, compared to 40 last year. Drake makes an ideal ZeroRB target and is a risk worth taking once the top 25 RBs are off the board.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
