Kenyan Drake Useless in Blow-Up Spot vs Patriots

Following a dominant and play-making preseason from Kenyan Drake, he’s been rendered useless so far during the regular season. Unable to shake Frank Gore’s corpse, the former ‘Bama back was firmly in Adam Gase’s dog house, registering only four touches in what should have been a blow-up spot against the Patriots defense. Gase told us repeatedly in the preseason that the speedy running back would be used in multiple ways, and would “bust out,” but he has taken a complete 180 when it comes to Drake’s usage. Out of all of the preseason “coach speak” this might be the most egregious of all. 

Last week we highlighted Drake as a “stock down,” but also a potential buy-low candidate. He was about to face a defense that looked slow as molasses through the first three weeks and one that he carved up last season. What makes matters worse is that the Dolphins were behind on the scoreboard the entire afternoon, which should have given Drake the chance to rack up some garbage time receptions and maybe a score at the end of the game — which went to Gore instead. It’s not like Gore really did much, as the Dolphins only ran a high school-esque 49 plays, but it’s just mind blowing that Drake has entered Jay Ajayi territory under Gase — which is frightening. There must be something going on behind the scenes or in the locker room. Although we told you to buy-low on Drake last week, it might be a good idea to just stay away at this point.
