Kenyan Drake, RB (LV)

Back into the picture

Drake ran for 34 yards and one touchdown on four carries against Denver on Sunday, adding two receptions for 39 yards and one touchdown on two targets.

After almost completely disappearing from the Raiders offense the prior two games, producing just 13 yards on three carries and 28 snaps, Drake got back into the offense in a big way against the Broncos. Unfortunately for Drake's fantasy investors, six touches from scrimmage still grades as a meager workload, and the touchdown production isn't normally in play for Drake. Indeed, these were his first two touchdowns of the season. Drake's fantasy upside is further compromised by the fact that he didn't see his workload increase when starter Josh Jacobs missed time in prior weeks. His weekly floor is very low, and -- at least under Jon Gruden's watch -- Jacobs' absence did nothing to help that. Perhaps the interim regime will look to use Drake more than Gruden did, but Jacobs is clearly still the workhorse.
