Projections for the season ahead
As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Arizona waited until Round 7 of the draft to add to the backfield after using the transition tag to keep Drake from leaving and trading David Johnson to Houston. That followed Drake commanding 61.2 percent of Cardinals carries and 13.4 percent of targets after arriving via trade. Drake is set up to work as the clear lead back after averaging just 114 carries over the past four seasons and 58.3 per season over four college years.

Drake showed his ceiling late last year and would benefit from the offense improving. But beware of Arizona overworking him.
