|The most significant boost to Kenyan Drake's fantasy value this offseason came with the departure of former head coach Adam Gase, the supposed offensive genius who opted to give geriatric tailback Frank Gore more carries than Drake despite the latter's clear superior talent.
We don't know how the new coaching regime under Brian Flores will handle their running backs. Hopefully spending the previous few seasons game planning against Drake will give Flores insight into the skill set the fourth-year running back possesses.
Drake should garner more consideration in PPR formats based on the fact that he secured 53 of his 73 targets for 477 yards and five touchdowns last season compared to only 120 carries. However, he does still carry value as a high-floor pick in non-PPR leagues based on his career-high nine total touchdowns in 2018.
Second round player Kalen Ballage will likely assume the Frank Gore, early-down role in the offense and will most likely garner at least 120 carries. But negative game scripts based on the poor Miami defense should work in favor of Drake, especially as a receiver out of the backfield.

FFToday's Take: The Dolphins were one of the worst running teams in the league last year as the cycled through Kalen Ballage, Kenyan Drake, Patrick Laird and others on the way to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick leading the team in rushing yardage. Howard gives the team a veteran presence but he won't inspire enthusiasm among fantasy owners.
|ARI, HOU working on trade for David Johnson|
Lamar Miller and Carlos Hyde both free agents

|Trade: Cardinals and Texans are agreeing to a trade that will send David Johnson to Houston, sources tell ESPN. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Carlos Hyde and Lamar Miller are both free agents. This move by Bill O'Brien gives Johnson a chance to bounce back after looking slow and sluggish in 2019. In a related move, the Cardinals have placed the transition tag on running back Kenyan Drake who will head into 2020 as Arizona's lead back.
