Wow. Among the top 12 starting RBs in the league? That's insane. What about 5 100 yard games in four years makes him a top 12 RB?Solar, where would you place Drake among his NFL colleagues? I think he’s a very good player in that he’s among the 12 best starting RBs in the league. I don’t think he’s a very good player is that means he’s a top 5 RB in the league.
He’s shown enough to me to be find spending $5 million a season with $12 million guaranteed. Anything more than that and you’re looking for trouble.
But it’s hard for me to think of an RB who would be worth much more than that — maybe if McCaffrey can do it another year and Barkley can do it 2 more...
Using Ourlads' Depth Chart (https://www.ourlads.com/nfldepthcharts/depthchartpos/RB), here are the guys I would take over Drake. Note - this is not in order of the best RBs, just going down the list of that site.
I'd have to think about it, but they're on the same level or slightly better:
So, at best, the 21st RB I'd rather have, and if you hard pressed me to choose, probably somewhere more around 25.
