Kenyan Drake is a bit of a wildcard. He had an okay 2020 where he managed 270 total touches, but his yds per touch fell a full yard below his previous two-year average (5.0). The situation in Arizona felt ideal for a player of Drake's particular skill set, and if placed in the right situation, he can become a top 10 RB in 2021.
