    I agree. People are upset because someone scores a TD but it's not their dude or it who I'm playings dude. They're mad cuz the wrong dude scored for us. Crazy

    I agree. But it would be nice to see drake break off some nice gainers in the first quarter

    It is a downside for fantasy. Like when Drake ran for that 69 yard TD it caused me to lose my fantasy game. So it was kind of a bittersweet moment for me. Where as if I wasn't playing fantasy I would have simply loved that moment.

    Despite missing a game, Drake is still #7 in the league in rushing and is on pace for about 1100 yards.

    BTW, Murray is #8 in the league in rushing also on pace for about 1100 yards.

    Additionally, Chase Edmonds is on pace for 1,000 yards from scrimmage.

    It will be interesting to see how the market for Drake develops.

    Update...Drake was 8th going into Giants game....and now is 6th. He will likely be top 5 before end of season.

    Warts and all, he gets the job done...and could do better without so many outside zone runs...that's not his game.

    On his current pace he would hit 1,060. That seems awfully low for top 5. Must be a really off year for rushing.

    That would be . . .
    14th in 2019
    7th in 2018
    8th in 2017
    11th in 2016
    8th in 2015
    12th in 2014
    12th in 2013
    15th in 2012
    13th in 2011

    so roughly 11th in an average year. Reasonable.

    Yeah, outside of Henry and Cook, 3-6 are within 150 yards of each other...Drake is less than 40 yards behind Chubb and 52 behind Jones....and none of the other RB's in the top 15 are basically splitting carries with their QB.

    Yeah, in a year with Covid and so many injuries, it's just not insanely impressive.

    Don't get me wrong, he's not bad, but we shouldn't be looking at Drake for a huge contract as as a "top five back."

    The NFL has gone mostly to RB by committee, so if that trend continues, we'll see their totals fall. I believe it is an attempt to make their shelf life longer.

    Drake has some skill, but I see him miss holes way too often. Watch... he'll have 150 yards this week and make me look dumb.

    Very interesting. I just don't see people giving him or a majority of backs what the position has gotten in recent pasts till what has happen now. I think we can offer about the same at a decent amount without overspending and Drake actually fits our offense better than most if he wants success
